About the location
Khao Lak has a prime position on Thailand's west coast - it's bordered by three stunning national parks, and has a sprinkling of marine parks on hand, too. Then, of course, there's the beach. The golden sands roll out along the coast for almost 10 kilometres, bordered by casuarina pines and groves of coconut palms, which hide a handful of luxury hotels.
The resort is named after Lak Mountain ('khao' means mountain in Thai), which sits within the Khao Lak Lam Ru National Park. The park is chock-full of forest trails, waterfalls and dramatic granite mountains, and is perfect for wildlife spotting and leisurely hiking. Nearby Khlong Phanom National Park is also great for nature walks. Khao Sok National Park is the place to go for river canoeing and rafting, and also features caves, karsts and lotus flower-filled rainforest.
Snorkellers and divers can head out on long-tail boats to explore reefs, wrecks and coral-ringed islands. Khao Na Yak reef (just 40 minutes' boat ride away), Surin Islands Marine Park and Similian Islands Marine Park are the three big names.
60 minutes from Phuket airport.

I stayed at The Sarojin with my wife and 2 friends for 3 nights and the hotel certainly had the "wow" factor we were looking for. The setting of the hotel is incredible, a perfectly groomed garden with coconut and mango trees all around giving a real sense of serenity in a tropical and romantic environment. Breakfast is superb with an unlimited amount of cold and cooked food, breads and fruit juices. Lunches and dinners are on the expensive side (about 5500 baht - 140 EUR - for dinner for 4, 1 course no wine) but the food is of good quality. There is a restaurant next door which is cheaper but a bit more rustic (but a great place to watch the sunset from!). The adults only theme meant the hotel was really quiet and most people spent the day lounging by the massive square pool which feels more like a luxurious Roman bath. In the evening we took the paddle boards and kayaks (free of charge) up the incredibly beautiful beach and watched the sunset whilst enjoying some pretty reasonably priced cocktails.
The sticking point for us was the service was not quite as polished as it should be and some of the staff at the restaurant and bar were quite rude to my wife who is Thai. I do not know whether we were profiled (Thai woman with European husband) or whether this is the way the staff talk to everyone but the words that they used (in Thai) were certainly not appropriate. My wife was the only Thai person in the resort and I wouldn't like to feel that local people were not welcome at the Sarojin.
Also, we stayed in a spa suite which has a free massage included but you are only allowed to book the massage for between 10am and 2pm. Given we only stayed a few nights it was actually quite difficult for us to book our massage (the first day was fully booked when we arrived) and when we had the massage it was pretty soft even though I had requested hard. Our guests didn't stay in a spa suite and the massages were a bit too expensive for them, I think around 2,400 Baht for a 1 hour treatment. They instead got the shuttle into Khao Lak town and had one there for a fraction of the price.
Overall that took the gloss off what was a pretty memorable stay. We usually go to Phuket 2 or 3 times a year but Khao Lak is much less crowded, the beaches less polluted and the facilities at the Sarojin were incredible and perfectly suited for a relaxing few days.

The hotel is so romantic and beautiful; it is everything you imagine a tropical honeymoon getaway would look like. The beach is pristine, the ground is lush and the room is so spacious. The food from both restaurants were very good and the bar serves excellent drinks for happy hour.
We travelled as a group of four and we were hoping for an amazing holiday. All is well until I have encountered some rude waitresses at the bar and the Fusion restaurant. I think these waitresses look down on me as I am a local and they are used to serve Westerners. I, as a luxury hotel enthusiasist, am very disappointed with this attitude.
On the first occasion, I asked a waitress (in Thai)to take a group picture for us and she replied with the most annoyed expression 'Can you not just wait a moment'. I was obviously surprised at how hostile she sounded. This is not how one is expected to be treated at a five star resort.
Then, we went to Fusion restaurant for dinner. One of my friends is allergic to Rye flour and asked me to ask a waitress if the bread contains any Rye. I asked one of the waitress politely but she did not understand what Rye bread was and got annoyed with me.
Breakfast at hotel is amazing and you can have it any time of the day. The same waitress took our breakfast order and refered to me as 'nong' which is an impolite way to call a customer (especially at this kind of place. Even in a corner shop, rarely do I hear this word being use to refer to a client).
So, to sum up, I did have a good holiday and I really hope the staffs attitude towards a local can improve.
