The luxurious boutique residence The Sarojin has launched a brand new package called ‘Sarojin Cares Sport’. It has been designed for travellers who seek a sense of adventure and a challenge whilst still wanting to give back to the local community and care for the environment during their stay.
Following the success of previous packages under the ‘Sarojin Cares‘ theme, the sporting escape includes a range of adrenaline-inducing activities, such as rock climbing, zip-lining, and bamboo river rafting, as well as the opportunity to enjoy yoga, cycling, running and water sports around the resort alongside the chance to learn about and participate in various conservation projects protecting and caring for this area of outstanding natural beauty.
From just THB 76,226 (approx. £1,665), two guests can enjoy 7-nights in a Garden Residence, all day a la carte breakfast with sparkling wine, private transfers to/from Phuket International Airport, a ‘Zip Lining and Bamboo Rafting’ excursion in the Khao Lak Lam Ru National Park, a guided ‘Rural Cycle Glimpse of Local Life’ tour on Koh Kho Khao island including transport by longtail boat, an ‘Extreme Adventures Phang Nga Bay Rock Climbing’ experience including a village tour and traditional Thai lunch and a blissful 90-minute yoga and meditation class back at The Sarojin.
As part of the package, guests can also participate in the resort’s ongoing volunteer projects in the local community, such as mangrove planting and beach cleaning initiatives to help protect the landscapes that provide such a fantastic backdrop for sport in Khao Lak. The package is available for stays until the 31st of October 2022.
Guests can begin their stay with an exhilarating zip-lining experience, right in the heart of the Khao Lak Lam Ru National Park. Home to impressive mountains and lush tropical evergreen montane forests, here guests can swing between the trees and take in the views of the jungle floors below while getting their heart rates pumping. After the energetic jungle encounter, the experience ends with a drift along the park’s rivers on a traditional bamboo raft.
Also included in the package is the opportunity to discover Koh Kho Khao on two wheels with a guided morning cycling tour of the small local island, which can be seen to the north of The Sarojin beach.
The flat terrain here is best explored by bike, and guests can expect to encounter quiet beaches, vast fields, a variety of birds and even herds of water buffalo – it’s the perfect experience for those wanting to combine a love of cycling with nature. Transportation to the island by longtail boat is included.
For extreme adventure, guests can then head to Phang Nga Bay for an unforgettable rock-climbing experience. The area is renowned for its dramatic limestone cliffs that emerge from the emerald-green water. It is also home to the remarkable Koh Panyee, a sea gypsy village primarily built on stilts and appearing to float.
It’s here where guests can attempt to climb a 20-metre rock formation that offers breathtaking views of the settlement below.
Once descended, a guided stroll around the village to meet residents and independent businesses provide valuable insight into the local way of life before lunch and then the final climb of the day, which is tailor-made for each guest.
Back at the resort, the package concludes with a 90-minute yoga and meditation class held in The Sarojin’s idyllic tropical gardens or by the pool, with a gentle session of Vinyasa Yoga followed by restorative mindful meditation.
There’s also plenty more for sporting enthusiasts to enjoy in and around the resort, from the use of complimentary mountain bikes to explore nearby towns and jungle paths on land to sailing catamarans, sailboats, sea kayaks and windsurfing boards for those more tempted by the water.
The resort’s infinity pool provides the perfect spot for a refreshing swim or for surfers, neighbouring beaches such as Nangthong, Bang Niang and Pakarang have waves between 1-3 metres.
The secluded 11km stretch of white sand beach on The Sarojin’s doorstep is ideal for running and walking. Guests strolling the sands can take part in the resort’s ongoing beach cleaning activities by collecting any litter or recycling they see on route, bringing it back to be processed.
Those wanting to help protect the stunning landscapes around the resort and enjoy a rewarding end to their sporting adventure can join The Sarojin team on one of their regular volunteer days in the community. This includes supporting the Baan Nam Kem Mangrove Forest Planting Project, which the local fishermen set up following the 2004 tsunami. Here, guests can help plant new trees and restore the vital mangrove ecosystem damaged by the disaster.
The activities within this package are designed to showcase The Sarojin’s local area and give back to businesses and communities that are vital to Khao Lak. The ‘Sarojin Cares Sport’ package is based on a rate for two adults sharing a Garden Residence for seven nights for stays until 31 October 2022, inclusive of activities listed. Prices vary depending on the date of stay. Upgrades to a Pool Residence or Jacuzzi Pool Suite are available at an additional cost.
