As first part of our Thailand-Cambodja trip , we stayed for five nights in the Sarojin.
Only superlative positive comments for this jewel of a hotel. We stayed in the Whitekaps suite room, ideal for families with a superb bathroom , enormous bedrooms and really good beds to enjoy after a 15 hour flight ....
Breakfast is à la carte and served with a smile. Dinner in the Edge was excellent as well, some really good Thai dishes at quite high prices but with a FIVE star service and a beautiful view onto the Andaman sea.
Beach is small however long beach walks along the most marvellous coast are easy and possible...
The best part of this hotel is the personal service, many thanks to the team for this, from the warm welcome at reception to the caring details in the restaurants and the friendly smiles at watersports and beach area....
Again, we enjoyed 5 marvellous days in your hotel , special thanks to Mon, Wat, Nuang and Jane and the other members of Kade's staff we forgot !

The best about this small resort is the location. It's on a very natural unspoiled quiet white sandy beach, where You can make long walks The hotel grounds are very green with a
big pool. Breakfast is as said before Amazing! But maybe the most important is the staff, so friendly and fun loving, they smile and laugh for real and do what they can to help, I know this from a personal experience. Thanks! We were there in low season so there was no other options for eating because everything was closed. Let me not forget to mention the spa witch is stunning! Hope to come back!

We stayed for 7 nights in the Sarojin Suite. Room was amazing, very spacious. Over sized bathroom with rain shower, super large bed, great couches to laze and read a book all day long. The pool was fantastic and the gardens and hotel grounds are unbelievable. Highly recommended. We did stay in the monsoon season, and this did come true. It did rain every day, with max temp 34 degrees and minimum temp 25 degrees. Rain was not an issue we still swam in the pool. Obviously if we had a choice we would travel out of monsoon season, but we were happy to take advantage of the discount prices due to monsoon season. Beach looks nothing like the internet as water is quite brownish due to large swell and water running into the ocean from local rivers and streams.

We stayed at the Sarojin for 10 days in May for our honeymoon. It is such a special place, we had a wonderful time. As nearly all the previous posters have commented, the all day breakfast is amazing. There is such a wide variety of food and it is lovely not to have to rush down there before 10am! The pool is absolutely beautiful and we never had a problem getting a sun bed, the same goes for the beach. We took the bikes out a couple of times which was good fun. Other highlights included the lavender facial at the spa - just amazing, a beautiful private dinner in the beach hut, an elephant trekking trip, sunset cocktails, fantastic Thai food at the Edge, a lovely tasting menu at the Ficus, towels and cold water by the pool and beach and our beautiful pool room. I'd also recommend going into Khao Lak and to the market on Saturday. It did rain on several afternoons whilst we were there but it didn't detract from the holiday at all. My only criticism is that the laundry service is too expensive! We were prepared to spend a bit more for the ease of having it done through the hotel but the prices are too high to justify - instead we cycled to a launderette down the road who did a great job at a fifth of the price.

Room Tip: If you can, get a pool room - it is so nice to have the option to spend time by your own pool!

Stayed here with family in June 2014 for 4 nights. Had a fantastic stay . Firstly we had a suite which was very large. Bathroom was large too. The breakfast was amazing . Excellent choices from the menu. We spend most of the day in the resort and experienced some of their sightseeing and it was great . The hotel is about 10 minutes drove from khao lak town with a good amount of restaurants and shops. We also used the spa. Very nice setting surrounded by trees. Looks like you getting treatments in the jungle. Both restaurants were great. They don't have kids menu but our kids are older and there was plenty to choose from . Beach was probably the highlight . Wonderful calm ocean and sandy beach. We would come back !

We arrived at the Sarojin on a wet night in June after spending 4 days in Bangkok getting married. The Sarojin was our chosen destination to have our wedding ceremony and I have to say it could it have been a better choice. We were greeted the staff and given cold towels and a fantastic cold drink. We were upgraded to a suite for our stay as we were having our wedding ceremony there. Now at this point I must point out that prior to arriving I had been emailing Alexandra regarding our wedding and it would appear that nothing is any trouble. We met Khun Kade the morning after arriving just to touch base and this man is nothing short of amazing. He knew who we were and made both myself and my wife feel like a friend from the moment we met rather than a paying guest. After a day of orientation (stayed by the wonderful pool drinking cocktails) we retired and had a luxurious sleep. Met Alexandra the next morning and at this point I will say she has to be one of the most fantastic people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. She explained what our wedding would be like and she said to leave everything to her and we would have the most fantastic day. She wasn't wrong....it was totally amazing and beautiful. The next few days passed in a blur and our wedding day arrived, beautiful sunshine, clear skies and some serious nerves! The private dining Beach BBQ that we booked was again absolutely amazing. The food, by Thai standards, is expensive but certainly nothing to worry about, we ate amazingly well for no mire than a good night out in Cheshire :-) I truly cannot fault anything about the Sarojin... The shuttle bus that runs into Bang Nang is 100 baht per person each way, takes about 10 mins to get there and is a welcome air conditioned relief from the heat in the day. I could go on for hours about the Sarojin but I would only be echoing what other people have said but one thing I can say: everywhere I have stayed there has been one or two people who have stood out, at the Sarojin I cannot say that....every member of staff is amazing but I will take a small opportunity to name a few: Khun Roland, Khun Kade, Khun Alexandra, Lula ( thank you for the amazing photos) Naho, Mon and for those I have not mentioned, don't worry, you were amazing I'm just immensely terrible with names sorry :-) I truly would live to thank the Sarojin staff for making our wedding so special for myself and Michelle :-) thanks guys and we will see you all next year

Room Tip: No tip required, all to rooms are amazing but I would recommend the extra for a suite :-)
