The Sarojin is a luxury 5 star resort designed for relaxation.
Airport transfer was prompt-note this is about 1hr15mins north of Phuket airport. Cold towels and bottle water were immediately offered
Check-in was friendly and efficient. Again cold towels were offered and a much appreciated (after our long flights and transfer) mock tail.
Room is excellent-the rooms have a luxury feel with a large comfortable bed and couch, large wardrobe, and luxurious outdoor feel bathroom
Included a la carte breakfast at the Ficus restaurent is VERY GOOD. Sparkling, fresh juices and reasonable espresso are offered in addition to a nice variety of breakfast options. This restaurant also offers a great modern food menu for lunch and dinner.
The Edge is a more Thai styled restaurant and is located on the edge of the beach. We LOVED the food here.
The pool is great and the unspoiled beach is even better.
Non motorised watersports (bodyboards, kayaks 1or2person, windsurfer,sailing boat & catamaran) are all free.
The staff are FANTASTIC. Dawid (manager) is charismatic and will personally dine with you should you desire. All the staff are exceptionally friendly and helpful-nothing is too much trouble. They are friendly and will talk to you as little or as much as you wish. You can learn so much Thai culture from these friendly staff.
The location will not suit all but this is a characteristic not a fault.
Activities are dearer than "off the street" however there is additional service. On our elephant trek a Sarojin staff member carried my DSLR camera while we enjoyed the ride. He took numerous photos-most of which were very good. He carried drinks for us too. And when it started to rain out came a pair of rain jackets. Guests from another resort got soaked and only have their own photos to show for it.
Out temple tour with 'Jack' was fantastic. With a tourism degree, and in depth Monk knowledge, we had an unforgettable day that will not be forgotten.
Food is not cheap-The two restaurants offer beautiful food full of flavor and with excellent service but everything is dearer than local restaurants. Note that many local places do not exercise the same food handling skills of The Sarojin and few offer the views and service the hotel does. Many guests of neighboring resort guests also dine at the Sarojin so that may say something too.
