We visited the Sarojin for our honeymoon during April this year (2014) and we had the most incredible time there. All the staff are so friendly and always ready to help and the managers wonder around the hotel chatting with the guests which was a really nice touch. The location is out of this world. The hotel is about 15 minutes north of Khao Lak so it's very quiet and tranquil.
We stayed in a pool residence which was amazing, the private pool and garden were great and as we were on our honeymoon we received a complimentary bottle of sparkling wine on arrival and some great bed decorations throughout our stay including an elephant!
Breakfast runs from 6:30am to 6:30pm which is a great idea. The menu is a la carte but you can order as much as you like.....the food is fantastic, their waffles were so good I had them every morning! Breakfast is served at the Ficus restaurant which is situated on the side of a Lotus pond so you can sit right on the waters edge. After breakfast they serve a European menu during the evening which again is fantastic and very tasty. Their other restaurant is called The Edge which is set on the beach and serves Thai food, we had some cocktails there a couple of times but we didn't eat, however the menu looked very comprehensive and very tasty.
The main pool is really large and never felt too busy, in fact the hotel only has about 52 rooms so the whole resort didn't feel busy at all. Down one edge of the pool they have 3 pool pavilions which if you can get one are great as they give you give you more space to yourself and you're surrounded by water. The staff bring ice cold water to you on a regular basis which is just what you need in that climate.
My wife visited Pathways Spa which is part of the hotel and she had a 2 hour massage which apparently was on of the best massages she has ever had, high praise indeed!.
The hotel is on a beach called Pakweep Beach and many including me think it's the nicest beach in the area, it has white sand and wonderfully blue sea which is perfect for swimming in as it's sheltered by Pakarang Cape. Watersports at the hotel are complementary so I enjoyed a couple of hours of sailing and again the staff were very attentive and one of them came out on the boat with me. There are a few restaurants along the beach, there are two right outside the hotel which do really good food at very good prices but further down the beach to the south there is a restaurant called the Boatyard which was originally built to help the local fisherman repair or rebuild their boats after the tsunami struck, they now do great food and it's wonderful to watch the sunset over a cold bottle of Chang and/or a glass of wine!
Overall The Sarojin is a must for anyone visiting the Khao Lak area as it is one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in, it is very personal, very beautiful, very tranquil and very friendly. As well as the hotel, Khao Lak has much to offer including a few national parks and quickest way to the Similan islands and some of the most beautful beaches in Thailand!
