“perfect relaxation”
Reviewed December 31, 2013

Just returned from our third visit to the Sarojin and found it as delightful as before.
I feel that we cannot add to the excellent reviews already posted but feel obliged to respond to the very few negative reviews. I can only consider that those people who were disappointed in the resort did not understand what the Sarojin is about.
If you want "nightlife", loud music in the bar, games in the pool and mountains of poorly prepared food at the breakfast buffet, then don't go to the Sarojin. If, however, you want peace and tranquility in beautiful surroundings, excellent food with attentive, exemplary service then the Sarojin is for you. The staff are quite superb and obviously love working at the hotel.
No, it is not cheap but there are plenty of inexpensive bars and restaurants a few minutes away along the beach or just 10 minutes away by taxi in Khoa Lak. Inevitably with a small hotel , the excursions etc are more expensive, but again you are paying for the quality and exclusivity. If you want cheaper then go into town.
We have travelled a lot and lived around the world over the last 40 years, staying at many top rate hotels, but have rarely come across anything quite as special as the Sarojin.

Room Tip: The garden rooms are fine. I cannot see why anyone would want more.

We have recently returned from the most wonderful 10 day holiday at the Sarojin and we cannot wait to return. We loved the comfortable rooms, the beautiful gardens, the perfect swimming pool and fantastic service from delightful staff. The breakfast was excellent and to be served delicious food at anytime of day adds to the relaxing holiday experience. We ate at both restaurants and enjoyed the food, although the main restaurant was expensive. The hotel is on a lovely long sandy beach and the sea was lovely and warm. If you are looking for a peaceful, relaxing holiday in beautifull surroundings the Sarojin is hard to beat

We had a 10 day stay at The Sarojin in October as part of our honeymoon. It was a truly magical stay. Right from the start where we were picked up at the airport with fresh scented flannels (a continuing theme) and a drink in our private car we knew it was going to be a special stay. Our poolside room was divine. Beautifully presented and we arrived to a floral arrangement saying happy honeymoon and similar displays after each day trip. A very special personal touch.

The Edge restaurant on the beach served the finest Thai food we've ever tasted. Beautiful fresh seafood with incredible Thai flavours and all kinds of other glorious dishes.. We also did the waterfall private dining experience which while expensive was unforgettable.. 2000 lit candles guiding you up to a dining table by a stunning waterfall.. Unforgettable.

We would also recommend organising day trips with the hotel as you get the real royal treatment.. The trip to the Similian Islands was not only stunning geographically but also was accompanied by a massive banquet with lobster, squid and many other delicacies. Also Phang Nga bay is very much worth a visit. Remarkable area.

All in all a very special stay. A big thank you to the events manager who was so enthusiastic in organising our trips.. We highly recommend it for honeymoon, anniversary or just a very special holiday for a couple.

It is difficult to put into words what a truly stunning hotel, the Sarojin is. It is rare to find a hotel that manages to blend 5 star luxury with such wonderfully understated but exceptional service by staff the hotel should be proud of.

The location and gardens are breathtaking, and the beach is straight out of a postcard....beautiful blue-green sea and white sands.

The rooms were of the expected high standard, and always well serviced.

The all day a la carte breakfast is a treat and experience in its own right, as is the resturant overlooking the sea.

The day trip to the Similan Islands was an amazing experience and well worth the investment..

Cannot fault the Sarojin and its staff and look forward to visiting again!

Room Tip: Make sure to specify a room with the couples pool!

This hotel fulfilled so much for both myself and my husband. Having just completed a busy tour of Bangkok and Chiang Mai it was so lovely to arrive at the Sarojin ready to enjoy a restful six days before returning to the UK. on arrival we were greeted by members of staff with a lovely Thai tea. The extra special surprise was that, because it was our silver wedding anniversary we were upgraded to a suite. We were so amazed. The room was superb and had a separate sitting room, two toilets, a 360' large bath, rain shower and alternative normal shower and kitchen area. We had two televisions. Outside there was a large terrace with table chairs, sun umbrella and circular pool which was heated by the morning sun. We were located opposite the pool area and a 2min walk to the beach area. The sand was white and the sea emerald green. It stretched for miles and was really secluded.
We did not take up any of the excursions or other opportunities at the hotel because we just wanted to rest.
The food in the hotel was expensive. We did not eat there because of the cost but wished however we had eaten at one of their themed nights as the food looked superb. There are one or two restaurants on the beach along from the hotel which were very cheap and tasty.
The breakfast at the hotel was lovely, you could have whatever you wanted along with a glass of bubbles! We were really pampered. If you are thinking of a honeymoon destination, this is the place to go.

Room Tip: All the rooms are fab.

My husband and I stayed here at the Sarojin for five nights as part of a holiday to celebrate my husbands 40th birthday. This hotel absolutely has everything we were looking for. We both work very hard in our day to day lives so was looking for somewhere to sit back and relax. From the minute we arrived at the Sarojin we felt completely relaxed. We stayed in a Pool Residence, the rooms are spacious, clean, beautifully decorated with all the toiletries including mosquito repellent you could need. The pool and garden were very tidy, the perfect place to relax.

The Sarojin breakfast was out of this world, I looked forward to it each morning. From the moment you arrived for breakfast the staff could not do enough for you, from being offered a wide range of hot drinks, fruit juices and sparkling wine, to the extremely high quality of food. I have to mention the beautiful young lady who served the pastries each morning, her smile just added the finishing touch to a perfect setting.

The staff cannot do enough for you they really do go that extra mile to ensure you are relaxed and comfortable. The minute you walk onto the beach, the beach staff are ready to make up your sun bed with lovely clean white towels. You don't have to wait long before cold glasses of water are served along with refreshing watermelon, all complimentary.

The food at the Sarojin is some of the best we have ever experienced, the evening meals served in a beachside restaurant with candle lit tables, Absolutely stunning. The meals were just as excellent in the seafood restaurant located around the Lilly pond. The sound of the frog chorus during the evening just adds to the very calm stunning setting.

We borrowed the complimentary bikes from the hotel which was a great way to get out to see some of the local sights, certainly worth doing.

What else can I say other than each day I look forward to retuning to this hotel. The staff, the perfectly kept gardens, the very clean beautiful rooms, the great food and amazing staff make this hotel one I will certainly be returning to.

This hotel provides you with your own piece of tranquility, it's the first time I have been on holiday (I have travelled many places all over the world) and actually had a lump in my throat when it came to leaving.

To the management and staff at the Sarojin, thank you for a perfect holiday, you should all be extremely proud of your achievements. We will be back again very soon.

Beautifully designed, really relaxing, fabulous position, and almost perfect - but they did get a couple of things wrong (failing to collect us from the airport as we had arranged for one), and I'm a bit disappointed that whilst neighbouring hotels did use signs warn about the infestation of huge jellyfish which made swimming in the sea unwise, the Sarojin didn't mention this. Food in the main restaurant is really expensive - if excellent. Imagine top-of-the range London prices. But the beach restaurant is better value, and there are really cheap places just along the beach. Advertised as child free, for 5 days it was blissfully quiet, especially at the fantastic swimming pool - the best I can recall anywhere. But on our final day, a family with teenagers arrived and ruined the peaceful ambience of the pool. Maybe it should be advertised as Couples Only. The spa is also fabulous. So - all in all - really recommended, and I was close to giving it 5 stars, but it's just not quite there
