My friends and I stayed here for 6 nights of relaxation after spending time in Bangkok and the Khao Sok national park- it was the perfect end to a 2 week holiday in Thailand. We were two couples who stayed in the Garden Residence rooms which were very comfortable and only a minutes walk away from the enormous pool which is set in the centre of the grounds- we spent most days relaxing by the pool which we used to cool off from the 30+ degree heat. We spent an entire day on a trip out snorkelling just off the Surin Islands on the hotel's boat which was amazing. The trip is more expensive than other local operators but the small group, amazing seafood lunch and plentiful supply of drinks really makes it all worthwhile. We also made good use of the Pathways Spa with all members of the group having at least 3 x 90 minute massages whilst we were there. Bee was very helpful (and patient!) when we all made our choices :-) We had 'breakfast' at the Ficus restaurant everyday at around 12pm preferring to just have a few pieces of fruit from the room before our massages/early stint around the pool. They actually serve breakfast from 06:30 all the way through to 18:00 which we all thought was absolutely brilliant and gave customers complete flexibility on when they could enjoy their a la carte breakfast/brunch. We enjoyed several evening meals at The Edge restaurant down at the beach where we were greeted by Phoung on a regular basis who always met us with a smile. The food here was always excellent. We signed up for a Lobster & Seafood BBQ for one night which was effectively an all you can eat seafood meal that was setup on the beach with entertainment put on- the food was excellent and I'd definitely recommend this. We didn't have an evening meal at The Ficus restaurant as the menu was more Mediterranean- I'm sure the food was of good quality judging by everything else but our group preferred to dine on Thai food. There were lots of other things that we could've done whilst we were there but unfortunately we just run out of time. Everytime we spoke to a member of staff they always went above and beyond to deliver what we wanted- it really did feel as if they would do everything in their power to make our stay better. Everyone was very sad to leave this hotel and I could easily have spent many more days enjoying the pool or sitting on the private part of the beach that the Sarojin has...if we come back to Khao Lak then we'd return to The Sarojin without hesitation. Many thanks to all the staff at The Sarojin for making our stay so lovely and relaxing- you really have created a special resort. Read less

This is our second visit to The Sarojin. Last time we only stayed 2 nights and decided then that we had to come back. This time we enjoyed a whole week. This place is my idea of paradise, sumptuous rooms our own sparkling pool. A beautiful golden beach and gardens of tropical flowers , lily ponds and palm trees. The Pathways spa is incredible with straw huts and very adept staff who Thai massaged away all my stresses and aches accompanied by real birdsong from the surrounding gardens. No piped music required. The real defining feature of The Sarojin is the amazing staff who treat you like VIP’s. The all day breakfast is wonderful no buffet here all the dishes are brought to your table. How are we ever going to return to normal life. Thank you to everyone at The Sarojin for making our stay so enjoyable. Read less

From the start of our experience with The Sarojin via private transfer from Phuket airport to our departure, our stay with them was close to perfect. Our room was fantastic (Jacuzzi pool suite) and we loved the outdoor shower! All-day breakfast was also such a treat especially since you weren't forced to be up early in the morning to take advantage of the perk. Thoughout our stay, the thing that really stood out the most to us were the special experiences that The Sarojin offered. Everything they did was exquisite with an incredible attention to detail. For my birthday, we booked a private dinner under the wedding tree on the beach. The atmosphere that they created was stunning! We felt like we were in the middle of a glamorous movie set... private chef, table for 2 & loungers under the tree with candles set-up all over the beach and lanterns and flowers hanging from the tree branches. It was the most magical setting I have ever seen with the ocean at sunset in the background. We also booked the Surin Islands snorkel day trip on the Lady Sarojin and that experience didn't disappoint! 10 guest in total, unlimited drinks and delicioius lunch on the boat along with some of the best snorkeling (live coral, colorful fish, crystal clear water) in the region. The boat crew was simply fantastic and did everything to create a perfect day for all of us aboard. Food at the resort was consistently good as well while mixed drinks tended to be weak forcing us to order doubles... oh well, we were on vacation!! Read less

This is a luxury hotel so prices are much higher than norm. Service was very good. Property was very clean, spacious and comfortable. This hotel is very environmentally friendly by not giving us plastic bottle drinks but water in glass bottles. Beach nearby is quite quiet and very clean. Food was very good. There are vegan options too. Just some points for improvement: 1. Staff at the restaurants have to improve their English. Many of them seem to have difficulty understand when we want to make some changes to the food ordered. 2. I tried cappuccino. Coffee was terrible. 3. Height of the bicycles was too high. We are petite and don’t have the choice of riding the bicycles. 4. We tried to get the adventure package at special offer twice. Once in Dec when we stayed and later we try to book in June in 2020. We were told that the special offer was not valid for these period but not stated in the website. Please update your website when is the special offer valid. 5. The water in the small streams was quite stagnant and seems to be good breeding ground for mosquitoes which is quite a bit of worry for us. Try to get the water flowing. Overall is good experience and we will like to come again. Read less
