The Sarojin is a little piece of heaven on earth. This boutique hotel is stunningly gorgeous, the food is mouth wateringly delicious and the service is impeccable – it is perfect for romantic getaways or in our case for a wedding and honeymoon! It is undoubtedly one of the most romantic boutique hotels in the world. It is a classy hotel without being pretentious.
Our wedding was relatively hassle free because the staff at the Sarojin was on the ball, working diligently to turn our wedding into a stunning, intimate and thoroughly memorable experience
a) HAIR AND MAKEUP. The Sarojin arranged to have my hair and makeup done by a third party salon that was situated in the town. Whilst the salon was good I would suggest that you walk with the photos of your desired hairstyle (as recommended by the Sarojin) and bring your own makeup (to ensure that the makeup matches your skintone). Also, do a dry run before your wedding day...the extra fee is well worth the peace of mind.
b) CEREMONY, DECORATIONS, BOUQUET AND MUSIC: Everything was arranged seamlessly by The Sarojin......we simply gave our input and they did the rest. A special thank you to the housekeeping team that really worked hard to make a gorgeous cake, beautiful decorations and a stunning wedding bouquet of calla lilies and roses!
The Service at this hotel is impeccable as previously mentioned. The staff members are genuine and friendly without crossing the professional line. They work very hard to ensure that your expectations are not only met but exceeded. I’m pretty sure most people would agree that the hospitality industry is a tough one given that you’re dealing with people but the staff at The Sarojin make it seem easy. What really separates this hotel from another gorgeous hotel are the staff and the attention that is paid to the finishing details. There are of course many behind the scenes that we did not meet but a few that provided excellent service worth mentioning are Jib, Taew, Noo, Tik, Tom, Mook, Sofeya, Jeff, Toy, Nick and Paul (Thank You).
There are 2 restaurants at the Sarojin, The Edge (Thai food) and The Ficus (Mediterranean & Western food). Whilst prices are high (average meal is approx 1300 Bht without alcohol or appetizers) you get what you pay for. You get some incredibly tasty, flavourful and beautifully presented meals that will leave you wanting more. In the 8 days that we were there we never ate outside the hotel because we enjoyed the food at the hotel.
I would suggest getting a package that includes breakfast....it is definitely a highlight. Breakfast is served a la carte (you can order as much as heart desires) instead of the usual buffet fare. This adds a classy touch to breakfast. The breakfast menu is extensive and very creative........fresh juices of every kind, banana pancakes, vanilla waffles, Thai omelettes with Chili, scrambled eggs with truffle oil and coconut yogurt were just a few of the favourites.
We stayed in a Sarojin Suite (one of 14 on the property) and it was gorgeous. See attached photos. Complimentary water is given every day, in addition to complimentary homemade snacks (taro chips, sweet potato chips etc). The rooms are thoroughly cleaned and made up twice per day. It is also worth mentioning that the bathroom products are worthy of being used in a top class spa, you have a pillow menu to choose from, there is free wireless in the room and there is a cable tv in the room (although in paradise you don’t need it).
We chose to embark on a variety of activities – some through the hotel and others through 3rd party vendors.
a) COOKING CLASS- We had private cooking lessons with the Sarojin chefs which was so much fun (even though my hubby was initially a wee bit reluctant he thoroughly enjoyed himself). It starts off with a visit to a local market to learn more about the produce and then you are whisked back to the hotel to start cooking. The class also entails 2 glasses of wine per person which certainly helped to loosen up the hubby. Ultimately he turned out to be the better Thai cook...so hats off to him.
b) Scuba Diving at the Similan Islands, Elephant Trekking, Phang Nga Bay (aka James Bond Island). Although the hotel offers these excursions we chose to make arrangements with outside vendors directly, all of which were a fraction of the price offered through the hotel. Although to be fair you trade convenience, luxury and personal service for the reduced price.
c) SPA- I loved the spa at The Sarojin. Lush surroundings, faultless service and a wide variety of treatments to chose from. The therapists are highly skilled- each stroke is deliberate, every whiff of ylanag ylang oil serves to heighten the relaxation experience and the finishing touches (having your hair combed and braided) leaves you wanting more.
In summary we had an amazing wedding and honeymoon much of which was due to luxurious surroundings, exceptional food and the hard work of the Sarojin staff. We highly recommend you experience it for yourself...you won’t be disappointed.
