Following Thailand’s removal of testing requirements for fully vaccinated visitors from the 1st of May, the 56-roomed boutique residence, The Sarojin, has launched the “Sarojin Cares Recharge & Explore” package for travellers wanting to book a luxurious trip to the country now that travel restrictions have eased.
There’s never been a better time to book an escape to Thailand for travellers wanting to combine active adventure in the surrounding nature with rest and relaxation at the award-winning residence.
The “Sarojin Cares Recharge & Explore” package combines a luxurious stay with either sea or jungle exploration excursions, along with an experience to get to know the local area and the community, spa treatments, yoga and meditation classes, as well as a complimentary invitation to take part in conservation and community activities.
From just THB 69,163*, two guests can enjoy 5-nights in a Garden Residence, choose between either “Sea Adventure to Phang Nga Bay” or “Jungle Adventure to Khao Sok National Park” excursions for a day of active exploration, a “Glimpse of Local Life” experience, two 90-minute massage sessions and a 90-minute yoga and meditation class, all-day a la carte breakfast with sparkling wine served until 6:00 pm and private transfers to/from Phuket International Airport.
As part of the package, guests can also join the team on their regular ‘Sarojin Cares’ volunteer days and participate in the local area’s ongoing beach, coastal, and mangrove environmental care activities.
Guests can begin their stay with a ‘Just For Two’ Sea Adventures trip to Phang Nga Bay, which departs early to catch a glimpse of the picturesque sunrise. A morning of traversing the waters aboard a traditional fisherman’s longtail boat is then followed by a sea cave canoeing experience amongst the region’s iconic limestone karst rocks and a stop at Tapu Island – famously known as ‘James Bond Island’. After lunch at a local restaurant in the ‘Sea Gypsy Village,’ the excursion ends with a visit to Wat Thamsuwankuha and a Monkey Cave Temple.
Alternatively, guests can choose a ‘Just For Two’ Jungle Adventures trip to Khao Sok. The trip includes a canoe or bamboo raft safari through Khao Sok National Park, a chance to learn about the care and welfare of Thailand’s gentle giants during a visit to a local elephant sanctuary and a gourmet safari-style lunch. For those with a penchant for underwater exploration, from mid-October to mid-May, guests can join a group snorkelling trip aboard the Lady Sarojin yacht to the Similan and Surin Islands. This package has been designed to be truly flexible to ensure guests can choose the right dose of adventure for their trip!
The adventure continues with a Glimpse of Local Life, Day in the Life of a Local experience, where the resort’s expert guides take guests on a custom-made tour offering a more authentic insight into genuine Thai culture. Here guests can visit producers, farmers and fishermen to learn about life in a rural community, ignite their senses at a local food market, take a moment of reflection at the Ban Nam Khem Tsunami Memorial Park and explore the country’s links to religion at a Buddhist temple.
Back at the resort, for restoration of body and mind, the package includes two relaxing 90-minute spa treatments, a Royal Oriental Aroma massage and a Thai massage, at The Sarojin’s Pathways Spa – a secluded haven surrounded by coconut groves and lush greenery. And for a touch of mindfulness and spirituality, it also includes a 90-minute yoga and meditation class in either the resort’s luscious green gardens or beside the pool, where guests are guided through a gentle session of Vinyasa Yoga followed by restorative meditation to relax the body fully.
*The “Sarojin Cares Recharge & Explore” is available from April 2022, but prices vary according to the time of year. The package is based on a rate for two adults sharing a Garden Residence for five nights, inclusive of all activities mentioned above. Upgrades to a Pool Residence or Jacuzzi Pool Suite, or a Two-Bedroom Pool Residence are available at an additional cost, as well as further experiences such as a rock-climbing or a ‘spiritual blessing of love’ at a local Thai temple.
