I have just returned from a fantastic 8 night stay at the Sarojin with my Mum. First of all I have to comment on some of the recent reviews regarding the staff at the hotel which are so untrue. All staff at this hotel are all so lovely, helpful , kind, polite people. The room we stayed in was amazing (508). I have been to many hotels in Thailand the best one in Koh Lanta but this comes very close with the rooms being of a higher standard but only the location of this hotel is the only let down for me. Here are my good and bad point:-
All day breakfast is a fantastic idea at this hotel it is great not to be tied to time limits when you are on holiday i.e. rushing to get there before 10.00 and finding it is busy- We are never really hungry first thing on a morning so we bought Mango (from Thailand it is amazing) from the locals and ate that for breakfast and then went for our brunch about 12.30 when you needed a break from the sun anyway. It goes without saying that the food and service was excellent
The rooms here are amazing we were lucky enough to stay in a suite which was enourmous but I'm sure all the other rooms will be designed just as beautiful.
Restaurant by the sea - Beautiful location, excellent staff, good food but drinks just a bit expensive
Beach - This is an amazing picturesque beach
The location for me was the only let down for me only for the fact that there wasn't anywhere to walk along the beach on an evening to find somewhere to eat which would mean having to get the shuttle (free by the hotel and ) into the centre which was a 15 min drive or eat in the hotel every night. There was a couple of restaurants to the right as you walked out onto the beach, one was closed down and the other stopped serving at 17.00 - This maybe because of the time of year we went maybe in peak season they stay open later.
I can't comment on the spa as we didn't go, in fact we don't usually go the hotel spa's as the massages on the beach (to the right of the hotel) are so much cheaper (300 baht) and just as good.
We did do the elephant trekking and bathing this was a fantastic trip especially the bathing with them it was a real experience. Thanks again to King who was a fanastic tour guide and a credit to the Sarojin.
It was my Birthday the day before we left how all the staff knew it was my Birthday I really don't know I lost count how many times I was wished Happy Birthday!. A chocolate cake which was delicous and flowers - Amazing!!
Thanks to all the staff at the Sarojin for a fantastic holiday
