We stayed at the Sarojin for our honeymoon in November 2011. The hotel and service is absolutely amazing - from start to finish. Arriving at the airport we were greeted by the car with plentiful beer and cold towels.. the start of the relaxing, luxurious atmosphere the staff at the Sarojin create. Extras such as the Lady Sarojin speed boat, a la carte breakfast set this hotel apart and make it a perfect honeymoon destination. Having been to Asia (and Thailand) before we expected to use the hotel as a 'base' and eat in local restaurants and book trips outside the hotel. Infact we never left the hotel! It was just so perfect and worth every penny!
Accomodation is pure luxury: We stayed in the pool villa - we highly recommend this villa. We had a look round other villas as well - and the pool villa with the sala is perfect for relaxing and keeping out of the sun. There are lots of extra special touchs in the room to make it extra special.
The staff: are fantastic and so genuine. They will bend over backwards to make your stay special and it really feels like they want to make you welcome/part of the family for your stay. Dawid (the imagineer) adds that extra bit of fun to your stay - a big thanks for making our stay so memorable with the amazing trips you have planned.
The trips: are worth every single penny! Lady Sarojin (the speedboat) is so much fun. We did the snorkelling trip to Similan Islands. The full day trip included a very special lunch on the beach - an example of how the Sarojin always go one step more setting up a dining table with tablecloths/wine glasses etc on the beach. We also did the cocktail sunset cruise which is a taste of paradise, the wine tasting with Dawid which was great fun. The best trip for us though was the cookery class on the river bank - we took pleat boats up the river (one each so we could race each other!) to the market and then to the riverbank where we learnt the tricks of the Thai restaurant. Superb food and we had our own chef from the Sarojin escorting us and up to 5 people looking after us at one point. A very special trip and well worth doing if you love great food.
The food: was so tasty! We never usually eat in the hotel preferring to venture out to local restaurants. However the food at the Sarojin was great - and a choice between Thai or Med food. Both restaurants provide the perfect setting. Perhaps the only downside is the distance from the local town which put us off venturing far in the evening (about 20-30 minutes there and back in the car). Breakfast is an event in itself and as other reviews say is quite amazing and can double up as lunch too!
Overall we LOVED the Sarojin. This is a very special place and would recommend to anyone wanting a taste of luxury whilst still experiencing true Thailand.
