Simply one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in anywhere in the world. Lovely room with fantastic bathroom (rainwater shower, large stone bath, spa products) free wifi in room. On the beach yet very private and intimate. Food was excellent and service fantastic but what sets this hotel apart is the staff, from the moment we arrived, when we were greeted with orchids, cold cloths and drinks to the moment we left when our driver stopped off for us to collect some ordered shopping the staff could not do enough for us. Wonderful people, great hotel in a great place- go there!

Typical of all Thais, the staff were incredibly charming, friendly and hospitable. A very relaxing resort, but beware there is very little to do unless you are into national parks and scuba diving. If you want nightlife action, go to a busier and more commercial resort. As a result of the hotel's relative isolation and it being low season, we were stuck with the hotel's restaurants. Although the food was very good, this meant we were a "captive audience" for food. Part of the great Thai experience is eating out for next to nothing, but we were spending on average £30 per night on dinner which by Thai standards is exorbitant. The beach restaurants were closed because of low season. The only other criticism is the mosquitios - which is normal for Thailand - but the amount of stagnant water did not help, e.g. 'streams' in the landscaped gardens which were breeding grounds for mossies. The beach is nothing special. But the beautiful hotel and its staff were excellent.

The Sarojin Khao Lak has direct private access onto a secluded and sheltered beach which allows year round water activities. World-class dive sites such as the Similan Islands are 1 hour from the resort by boat. The resort can arrange transport from the Phuket International Airport, which is about an hour's drive away.
