The Sarojin is beautifully set on the shores of a secluded 11km white sand beach in Khao Lak, Thailand, just an hour north of Phuket International Airport. An area of outstanding natural beauty, Khao Lak is an idyllic setting for weddings and honeymoons.
Bordered by the Andaman Sea, this tropical paradise is within easy reach of the world-famous dive sites of the Similan and Surin Islands (ranked among the world’s top 10 dive and snorkelling sites) and Phang Nga Bay national marine park, renowned for its dramatic limestone islands and captivating sea cave canoe journeys. Three 18-hole golf courses are all easily accessible and within one hour from the hotel.
The Sarojin offers guests an opportunity to adventurously experience this spectacular setting.
The Sarojin is one of Thailand’s most romantic and multi-award winning hotels, ensconced within 10 acres of lush gardens which lead directly onto the secluded beachfront of the Andaman Sea. The luxury boutique resort is widely recognised as one of the country’s most impressive destinations for weddings and honeymoons – and its team of personal planners delight in tailor-making individual weddings and honeymoon experiences for guests.
While the legal process is required to be carried out in Bangkok (*), The Sarojin offers full services for a ceremony and reception in wonderfully intimate settings. Taking the pressure off the Bride and Groom, The Sarojin’s dedicated weddings team can look after everything from the music, flowers and entertainment to hair and make-up, photographer, videographer, fireworks displays and even an elephant to lead the procession to the wedding location.
Named after the mythical Lady Sarojin, daughter of a prominent Thai nobleman renowned as the perfect host, The Sarojin has been awarded the prestigious World Luxury Romantic Hotel award three times. The five-star hotel is one of the best boutique resorts in the world for couples to create special memories and offers both Thai and Western-style weddings in the setting of guests’ choosing; be it on the resort’s brilliant white sand beach, in the elegant Ficus restaurant presided over by the ancient tree that gives it its name, or at The Edge open-air restaurant which rests on the sandy beach and offers incredible views of the aquamarine ocean.
The surrounding area offers many amazing honeymoon experiences and The Sarojin’s attentive team of Imagineers can create bespoke experiences “just for two”. Perhaps a candlelit dinner at a magical jungle waterfall, a Thai cooking class by a riverbank, elephant picnic treks in a nearby rainforest, a romantic barbeque on a secret white sand beach or a sunset dinner on a private sand isle in the heart of the Andaman Sea or a jungle candlelit waterfall…?
In addition, The Sarojin runs a daily round-trip shuttle service to Khao Lak town (10 minutes away) to facilitate guests’ enjoyment and exploration of the local area. The hotel’s private yacht, Lady Sarojin, and its fleet of luxury cars are available for the exclusive use by guests.
Designed in a contemporary Asian style, the resort blends seamlessly with the local landscape, with a giant Ficus tree and reflective lotus pond at its heart. Each of The Sarojin’s 56 guest residences features its own private garden and “sala” sundeck, couples’ baths with waterfall showers, and plunge and relaxation pools that blend into the natural habitat.
Each guest residence is entered by crossing a natural stream via the grounds and through a garden terrace. All around nature abounds in a botanical haven wreathed with birdsong and filled with wild fruit and herb gardens as well as local species of trees.
Other facilities include Pathways spa, an award-winning spa that combines indoor and outdoor design elements with a range of indulgent treatments and couples’ massages classes; and a stunning infinity-edged swimming pool with three drape shaded pool pavilions that allow guests to slip from bed to pool in a matter seconds. Guests can also make use of the hotel’s complimentary fitness centre, mountain bikes, sailing catamarans, sail boats, sea kayaks and windsurfing boards.
Children under 10 years are not permitted to stay at The Sarojin but child guests of all ages are permitted and very welcome to attend the areas at The Sarojin reserved for the private wedding functions. (**)
