We all thoroughly enjoyed the day and the children too were warming to us as they got to know us all.

Historical Traveler Reviews The Sarojin Khao Lak
We stayed in Sarojin for a week in February. The hotel totally exceeded our expectations. It is a beautiful boutique hotel in a perfect setting.
Deserves the accolades
I would completely agree with the previous '5 star relaxation' review. Andrew and Kate have done a fantastic job and their commitment to their staff is being repaid by their commitment to guests. The food is wonderful and so is the presentation but the highlight of my stay was the trip on the Saraojin boat to the Similan islands. I've tried snorkelling at sites in Koh Samui and Hawaii but this was awesome. Settle back and chill out.
Just got back from The Sarojin and had a fantastic week of relaxation in this lovely hotel. The staff could not be more helpful, the rooms and bathrooms are fantastic (and better than their website shows you) and the food is very good. I would recommend going on the boat trip to the islands nearby - its a full day with some great snorkelling/diving and a delicious lunch on the beach, our guide for the day, Michael, was very knowledgeable, caring and enthusiastic (and good fun!).
The Sarojin, the place to relax in Thailand!
The Sarojin at Koh Lak, Thailand, is exactly as it reads on the website and is the most relaxing, sensual and peaceful retreat tucked away on the pearl white sandy shores of Koh Lak. It is perfect for anyone who is looking to chill! And what makes it such a top class resort, is not just the luxury and quality of this boutique 5 star resort, but its ability to be flexible to your every needs. So you do feel as if you are staying on a friends private estate and your every wish is catered for! It is this flexibility that gives The Sarojin the edge other its competitors.
The Sarojin will be inprinted on your memory as a place of very special memories - go and enjoy!!!
We stayed just a couple of days at The Sarojin during the Christmas break and it was simply unbelievable.
Khao Lak is Back
We thought The Sarojin was terrific and would recommend it unhesitatingly to friends. Front Desk, recreation, and dining staff were excellent. The room was great as well. I wish I could have taken the bathroom home with me. The breakfast service was a little weak, but that is a small criticism in an otherwise flawless performance by the hotel staff. There are also some neat rides to do on the complimentary hotel bicycles. One cannot but think about what happened at Khao Lak, but the local staff and Thai people are friendly and welcoming as ever and want people to return.
We were lucky enough to spend 4 nights at the Sarojin for our recent December honeymoon.
We stayed in sarojin in december. Overall, a truly excellent boutique hotel.
I recently stayed at the Sarojin Hotel in Khao Lak, near Phuket in Thailand. It is a brand new hotel, and I considered not writing a review at all for fear of it becoming too popular! It was truly fantastic. Set on a beautiful estate by the beach over looking the Andaman Sea, the Sarojin offers the best service I've ever had in Thailand, and I've always had better service in Thailand than anywhere else. The hotel's low-key elegance is echoed inside and out, from the beautiful grounds with its lotus ponds and palms, to the sophisticated and modern rooms. The rooms are imaginative spacious and comfortable, blending natural elements such as stones on the bathroom floor and waterfall showers, with large egg-shaped couples' baths. The rooms and the hotel are open-plan, giving it a sense of space and light. The Sarojin strikes the perfect balance between luxury, comfort, attention to detail and harmony with its surroundings. First-class hotels in Southern Thailand should be very worried by this impressive newcomer. Visitors will be delighted as I was.
A piece of heaven on earth
We stayed here in November 2005. The Sarojin is probably one of the most amazing most serene places I have ever stayed in. The owners had quite an imagination when it came to the design of this boutique hotel. There are just over 50 rooms yet it seems like you have the place to yourself. From the wonderful pool to the freshwater pond (it is big) with water lillies, palm trees, frogs everywhere, quite amazing. Then there is the beach, you are pretty much all alone and the sea rivals that of the Seychelles. It is a new hotel, the staff are great exceptionally polite - food is excellent- and overall a truly wonderful experience. We unfortunetly live in NYC, so a wee bit difficult to get back to, but if we lived in Europe would be visiting here 2/3 times a year! A.Behan and B.King
