WE HAVE JUST BEEN TO: Phuket, part 6, Sarojin


Stretching through lush gardens to one of the best beaches in Thailand, the Sarojin is an adult’s only resort with spacious suites. It is a sanctuary for complete privacy, undisturbed romance and – yes – adventure.

Your fantasy is the only thing that can limit your experiences at the Sarojin. Together with your very own “imagineer”, you can conjure up delicious surprises for your beloved (and yourself), from meals in magical settings to expeditions into the jungle. You might even arrange your wedding on elephant back.

Lying in one of Thailand’s most exciting natural settings, the Sarojin makes full use of the nature reserve on Khao Lak to give you adventure with a real tropical flavour. We took a boat ride on “Little Amazon”, an enchanting waterway among the mangroves. We were met by the surprise of a table in the rainforest, set with gourmet snacks and champagne glasses soon to be bubbling with golden liquid.

Next morning our breakfast was also a surprise. Director of Sales Paul Counihan lead us mysteriously along the white sands of the fabulous Khao Lak beach for about 10 minutes, till we arrived at a table set under a beautiful tree hung with flowers. Or you can have a meal by the waterfall or under the ficus tree. At the Sarojin they are proud of being magic-makers and creating astounding personal experiences for couples. So of course they also have "ordinary" things like watersports.

Meals were amazing – not just for the surroundings but for freshness and flavour. One restaurant lies right on the beach. The other, called the Wine Cellar, not only has a wide array of wines but is also the scene for breakfast. In between these restaurants you find a gorgeous 25 meter infinity pool with Jacuzzi and 3 shaded pool pavilions. No worry about kids running past.

Privacy is the keynote. Designed in a contemporary Asian style, there are 56 Guest Residences in seven double storey buildings within the expansive tropical gardens. We had our own garden and sala for relaxation, enfolded within the cozy privacy of a wall. The d├ęcor is contemporary, clean and stylish – not a thing out of place. Perfection is what it is all about.

Perfection and fantasy.

Here is the lantern we lit as we made a wish and sent it floating high into the sky. Till it became as small as a wishing star...

1 hour’s comfortable transfer in one of the Sarojin’s luxury cars from Phuket International Airport.

The hotel welcomes children aged 12 and above.

Wishes coming true - and tropical adventure...
