We visited just before the world caved in & but got back to the UK without event. The hotel was everything we'd hoped for after not having been to Thailand for a few years. It's very peaceful with large beautifully-maintained grounds. The room we had was excellent and the only quibble we had was that there was no fan in the outside covered lounging area so too hot to use. The shower/bath area was especially good, comfortable beds, good space and the standard of housekeeping was very good. The staff are all lovely, which is one of the great Thai traditions, but good to experience again. The food is a really strong feature of a stay here and it has Michelin listing. The menus are varied and flexible and food is available in the main "Ficus" restaurant (all-day breakfast brilliant), the beach bar, "Edge" restaurant and by the pool, as well as in-villa dining. The setting of the "Ficus" restaurant is just lovely. The beach front is quite narrow because of adjoining beach resorts though they aren't intrusive but there's nothing they can do about that. All beaches in Thailand are public & at least the hotel's been allowed to put loungers and sun umbrellas on the beach - very well serviced by the team. The beach bar doesn't actually face west quite and to see the sun sink into the sea you have to get a lounger on the beach for a while with a drink in your hand. We had some great sunsets. The beach is massively long & perfect for walking (or jogging if you really must). There are a couple of great little beach bars a few hundred yards up the beach to the right which serve delicious tempura squid and prawns. The pool is very large, very warm and a decent depth. Again, very well- serviced. The hotel arranges loads of trips and we had a memorable snorkelling trip to the Surin islands with a superb lunch. Expensive but worth it. There are also lots of themed barbecues etc. on the beach but if you aren't into that kind of thing, and obviously quite a few guests aren't, the "Ficus" restaurant stays open as an alternative. The owners (not Thai) are very open to constructive comments, which they will seek on your return. Read less

Don't want to 'knock' the hotel as the hotel itself is excellent but some info for people like us where the pool and beach area are important. First of all - massage was excellent. Room was excellent - reminded us of our time in The Maldives. Food - excellent. Recommend doing the Michelin Dinner. Loved the 'all day' timing for breakfast. What really disappointed us and therefore, for us, meant we did not get value for money - was the 1). pool - just an oblong shape with no shade if you wanted to swim during the day. Lovely grounds (wouldn't described them as being in the 'Jungle' as one reviewer stated) so there was plenty of room to make an interesting shaped pool and to plant some trees to ensure part of the pool was in the shade during the day (a few sunbeds were in the shade for most of the day) and 2). The beach. Only a small part of it is allocated to the Sarojin and so although the Sarojin is adults only, the beach area isn't so there are children playing immediately adjacent (no problem - but just for info). Also all the trees have been removed from the Sarojin part and the sun brollies aren't that large so unless you don't mind being in the sun, you can only be on the sunbeds for a couple of hours first thing in the morning and then again very late afternoon. Also - despite only being a short distance from the Manathai area which had lovely sand and you can walk a long way out in the sea - the beach at the Sarojin has a lot of 'broken coral' so was painful walking on the beach and into the sea. Also once in the sea the depth keeps varying - this may be because the beach is narrower at the Sarojin area than the Manathai area. Hope this is of use. Read less

This is our second time at the Sarojin and it has lived up to everything that brought us back. When you travel so far it has to be right and this certainly is. Peace, quiet, remarkable facilities and superb personal service. The setting is such a tranquil and beautiful one that you could imagine yourself in another world. Surrounded by jungle and so close to the sea. Staff who could not be more kind and helpful. If you are looking for peace and relaxation with wonderful food. This is truly it.

Have just returned from a fabulous two week stay at the Sarojin. We were there last year at the same time of year and so thoroughly enjoyed it that we just had to go back. It certainly didn’t disappoint second time around. From the moment you arrive to the sad time you have to leave you are so well looked after. We had a pool room this year and it was beautiful. So nice to just cool off in your own pool. Which we did a lot of as it was very hot this year. A big thank you to Sine who kept our room spotless. The all day breakfast is excellent. So much to choose from. Definitely the highlight of the day. Service is first class. Thank you to Na & O and all the rest of the staff at the Fiscus restaurant. You all do an excellent job. We also ate at the Seafood and lobster beach BBQ and the Thai BBQ which are held every week. We particularly enjoyed the Thai one. The choice of food was amazing. We also ate at the Edge on a few nights. Definitely not to be missed. (The spring rolls are to die for. ) The menu is very extensive and everything is cooked and presented to perfection. Again the service is second to none. Thank you Mon. We did one trip whilst at the Sarojin and that was to the Cheow larn Lake. Wonderful scenery. It’s in the Khao Sok national park and the drive there was excellent. Our guide was Fear who we had last year on our trips and she is excellent. She’s very knowledgable and friendly. Our driver was Ple ( hope I’ve got that right) and again excellent. So a big thank you to you both for a truly wonderful day. Kade the manager is first class. Always making sure that everything is alright for you. If not it will be put right. So once again a big thank you to all the staff and we hope that everything works out for you all at the Sarojin due to the current situation that we all find ourselves in. Keep safe. Read less
