Just returned from 11 nights at the Sarojin where we got married on the 28th January.
I do not know where to start in singing the praises of the Sarojin from the moment we arrived and even before we were made to feel extra special. Our room was upgraded from the pool residence to the Sarojin Suite as part of the wedding package and we were simply blown away. The suite was huge with seperate living room and bedroom and bathroom. There was a huge terrace with a plunge pool it felt like home from home. Rooms were serviced twice a day and everything was always immaculate and staff were wonderful.
We were at the hotel 2 nights before the wedding and met with a wedding planner Junko who had taken care of all the details and nothing was left to chance. Prior to going we had decided to book the Jungle waterfall meal for the wedding night and this was also all taken care of and planned into the day meticulously.
The wedding day was simply magical my Husband was given a seperate room to get ready 3 hours before the service and assistance was given no questions asked by Alexandra and Sak both only too happy to help. We opted to get married on the beach and the flowers and all the detail were unbelievable the attention to detail was fantastic. Hundreds of flowers tied to a huge tree that overhung the beach and extra flowers brought in as decoration all tied in to perfectly match the cake. It was a dream come true and all totally effortless on our part which was great everything was taken care of.
Following the service we were chauffered to our private jungle waterfall dinner. This is probably the most memorable experience of our lives. It is simply magical there is nothing else to describe it. Hundreds of candles 2 seating areas a private chef and a waiter just for you and the food was simply amazing. We were treated like celebrities and the waiter Sea who was also the waiter for our beach BBQ a few nights after the wedding was amazing.The service was out of this world and I would urge anyone who visits the Sarojin if you do nothing else do this. Its worth every penny and more I would pay double for an experience like that.
After the wedding we had our own in room private breakfast again the balcony was decorated with flowers and the service was amazing. All the dining experiences were overseen by Kade who took care of all the details and made sure everything was what we asked. We did not think we could possibly get anymore special touches but they just kept coming.
Everything about the Sarojin is perfect for a special holiday and I would recommend it to anyone getting married in Thailand. The wedding isn't legal unless you do some paperwork in Bangkok however Kuoni the holiday company took care of all these details and it is easily done.
The Sarojin is located a bit out of the main town approx 20 mins drive but there are other bars and smaller restaurants on the beach that are great for good cheap Thai food. The 2 restaurants in the Sarojin are fantastic but the prices are more European standard however you get what you pay for in terms of service/surroundings and presentation. The Sarojin does offer a shuttle service however note the times as they have an early bus at 4pm then the next one isn't until 8 so if you plan to eat out bare this in mind. It would be better to have a 7pm shuttle I think but perhaps they have gone with popular demand.
During our stay we had spa treatments at the Pathways spa again fantastic we had a couples day 5 hours each tailored to our needs and the price was approx 500 for the both of us including Elemis treatments. Considering facials by Elemis are approx 70 pounds alone in the UK the prices are fantastic and again setting and design of the spa is wonderful.
As part of the honeymoon package we also had the beach private candlelit BBQ. Again amazing and Sea was our waiter once again. The food was excellent all very fresh and cooked to perfection be warned there is enough for 6 people so dont worry if your full to bursting.
On this trip we didn;t have chance to experience a cruise on the Lady Sarojin boat but we will return and that is top of the list.
The hosted cocktail evening was great and we got to meet other guests and the manager Dawid who was really welcoming and happy to help.
I could write a book singing the praises of this hotel and all the staff. Our wedding was simply magical and I will treasure the memories forever. I will return to the Sarojin to celebrate an anniversary or other special occassion and I have recommended it to all my friends and family.
I would like to thank all the staff for there hard work and effort.
