The Sarojin is a beautiful property situated on a pristine and secluded stretch of beach on Thailand’s Andaman Coast.
This intimate and luxurious resort is just an hour’s drive away from bustling Phuket in the heart of Khao Lak and yet it feels a world away – you’ll find everything you need and more for a relaxing and memorable stay whether you want to chill out in the resort or explore the local area.
There are 56 spacious rooms and suites at the Sarojin, set over 10 acres of lush tropical grounds – all feature air conditioning, Wi-Fi, king-size beds, robe and slippers, fruit basket, water, deli-bar and tea and coffee making facilities. Some have a private plunge pool too. The neutral design, with stone floors and crisp white linen, helps to create a sense of calm, and while the property welcomes families, children under 12 are not permitted to stay.
Head out on the property’s luxury 38ft boat, the Lady Sarojin, for a day snorkelling or scuba diving in the nearby Similan and Surin Islands, or simply enjoy a cruise around picture-perfect Phang Nga Bay.
Other facilities include a 25-metre swimming pool, fitness centre, the Pathways spa and numerous restaurants. You can even try your hand at Thai cuisine with a cooking class.
For something a bit more personal, hire one of the Sarojin’s personal guides who can tailor-make activities for you – from trekking in the area’s world-famous Khao Lak and Khao Sok National Park, to exploring on elephant back.
And if that’s not enough to convince you, the Sarojin is committed to supporting the local community – The Sarojin Khao Lak Community Fund, set up in 2004, supports projects in Khao Lak, Phang Nga and, more recently, in Burma.
