We spent 2 fantastic weeks at The Sarojin from 21st February to 8 March.
We didn't intend to stay for a 2nd week however our next hotel (Centara Grand Beach Resort in Krabi) lacked the style, intimacy and tremendous service that we had grown accustomed to during our first week at The Sarojin.
The main purpose of our visit was our Wedding and it was very special. I have attached a picture and I would like to say a huge thank you to Lesa and her team for the professional way it was carried out.
In the morning of the wedding we had a private breakfast on the beach, the wedding ceremony itsself was at 5.00 pm and planned in time for the sunset. Finally we had our own private BBQ on the beach in the evening. It was exactly what we wanted, private, romantic and just for us. Everything was organised from the flowers to the cake and all the staff seemed to be aware that we were the couple that were getting married that week and were full of smiles for us both.
As all brides to be are, I had worries - the the beach would be full of people watching us, that the photographs would not turn out as expected and that it would rain! I need not have worried as everything turned out brilliantly.
I want to cover 2 points that have been raised by reviewers and these were in our minds before we visited The Sarojin.
The Expense - Yes it is expensive however you have to take this into context, this is a very very good 5 star hotel and we travelled when the exchange rates from Sterling to Bhat was particullarly bad. Thailand has developed its tourist industry from early days of when The Beach made it popular, remember they did have a Tsunami and are still recovering from this. We used the hotel shuttle service on most evenings to go into Khao Lak town and eat there, and then alternated with the hotel evening events.
The Mosquito's - Yes you will get bitten by them. I was covered in bites however again I will stress this is Thailand - what do you expect? I took antihistamine, used tiger balm and some other cream I got from a chemist there. It worked and the bites cleared after a few days.
We stayed in a pool residence and were delighted to learn that on our return (after a one night stay in Krabi) we were given our old room back. This is an indication of the fantistic service the staff deliver.
My husband & I have already agreed we will retrun to The Sarojin - the tranquil location, the fantstic staff service and our beautiful wedding are etched in our memory.
