Thailand’s luxury boutique residence, The Sarojin, is adding to its well-known repertoire of luxury offerings by introducing a brand new package called ‘Sarojin Cares Gastronomy’. The new package brings with it a mouthwatering array of options that is sure to thrill food fans.
Thailand has an incredible array of luxury residences, and most are pretty much guaranteed to offer you a fantastic time. However, it also plays host to a handful of extra-special places that will leave you with memories lasting a lifetime, and The Sarojin is one of them.
Recently, we wrote about the “Sarojin Cares” honeymoon package and hot on the heels of this; the luxurious boutique residence has launched a new food-focused package complete with a range of foodie treats.
The new experience is called the Sarojin Cares Gastronomy package. It includes fine dining experiences, street cooking classes, a chance to experience local life, the opportunity to source fresh produce at a local market, and the pièce de résistance is an incredible private dining experience by candlelight next to a waterfall in the jungle.
Too many of us nowadays are only interested in what goes into their mouths. What makes The Sarojin Cares Gastronomy package different is that it also allows guests to learn about where the food comes from and at the same time allows them the opportunity to support the local community.
Some of The Sarojin Cares Gastronomy Package highlights:
- All-day a la carte breakfast with sparkling wine
- A ‘Street Food for Kids Cooking Class’ in association with the Camillian Centre
- A ‘Glimpses of Local Life’ tour (including a visit to a cashew nut factory, the Takuapa local market, a local tea shop, a palm oil plantation, a rubber tree plantation, a coconut farm, a local prawn farm and a visit to ‘Ban Nam Khem’ fisherman village to see the fishermen’s way of life)
- A ‘Spa Cuisine Lunch and Pathways Spa Treatment’
- A Private Dining Experience at a Jungle Waterfall’ and private transfers to/from Phuket International Airport.
On the ‘Street Food for Kids’ experience, guests will get the opportunity to visit the local Camillian Centre, which provides daycare for children with physical disabilities. In addition to this, guests will get to combine an exciting street food tour of the local markets with a fun cooking class alongside one of the resort chefs and the children.
The team at The Sarojin has worked with the local rural and coastal communities for many years to create sustainable experiences. On the ‘Glimpses of Local Life’ tour, guests will be able to see how The Sarojin sources its fresh produce from the local communities. It also includes a visit to a cashew nut factory (a key ingredient in some of The Sarojin’s food favourites, such as “Chicken Cashew Nut”, “Deep Fried Cashew Nut with Thai Herbs”, and as a decoration on banana bread).
Guests will also have a chance to visit the Takuapa local market and the “Chin-Keng” local tea shop in Takuapa old town. If this wasn’t enough, guests also get to experience a prawn farm and the historic town, a visit to a palm oil plantation and a coconut plantation where The Sarojin sources its coconuts for fresh use in the kitchen, bar and for the chef’s dishes, and coconut oil, used cold-pressed in the Pathways Spa.
Pampering and relaxation are synonymous with The Sarojin, and after visits to the local markets and towns, guests will get to experience some of this in the best possible way.
The “Sarojin Cares Gastronomy” package includes a 60-minute Thai or Aromatherapy massage for two people at The Pathways Spa, followed by a delicious Spa Cuisine lunch which includes some delicious detox smoothies.
Possibly the most spectacular of the experiences included in The Sarojin Cares Gastronomy package is the “Private Candlelit Jungle Waterfall Dinner”, which will provide memories to last a lifetime thanks to its “wow” factor.
Arriving at one of the region’s most incredible waterfalls, guests will discover that their table has been set up in a truly magical setting. During the intimate ‘Just for Two’ romantic dining experience, guests are served sumptuous dishes of marinated Andaman prawns, lamb massaman curry, seared duck breast and steamed white snapper while taking in the candlelit backdrop of the cascading jungle waterfall.
As well as all the unique private dining locations to choose from, back at base, The Sarojin offers some of the finest contemporary Thai and Mediterranean cuisine at its Edge and Ficus restaurants. Repeatedly featured in the MICHELIN Guide Thailand, the restaurants’ menus take inspiration from the very best of Thai cuisine.
They use fresh, seasonal and local produce, including herbs from The Sarojin’s very own herb garden and specialities only available in Khao Lak, such as sea grapes, seaweed and varieties of wild mushrooms. Supporting the local farmers, fishermen, food artisans, and producers is an important aspect of The Sarojin’s dining offer, which contributes to sustainability and the overall #sarojincares initiative.
The delicious food at The Sarojin is courtesy of Executive Chef Gogh, who has been with them since 2006. He says: “At The Sarojin, we create our menus with the careful balance of flavour that Thailand is famous for, using a combination of locally sourced ingredients and speciality products. I always think ‘less is more’ when it comes to creating a perfect dish, and so apply this to all my menus.”
