Hi there,

In my opinion, it would be better to look outside of the sarojin for your diving excursions - they are really expensive through the resort! We paid $100AUD pp for a day trip to phang nga bay with sea canoeing and lunch etc but it's at least double that to go with the sarojin. I'm not sure about the restaurants as we were there in low season but the beach restaurants may be open when you get there and are only a short walk from the sarojin on either side of the beach :)

I can highly recommend the friendlys restaurant - it's about a 5 minute walk down the beach when you turn left from the beach at the sarojin. You have to walk up a sandbar to get there. The food was incredible (we tried the pad Thai and the massaman curry). Was only about 150 baht per meal and the cocktails were about 130 baht! Plus the big bottles of Chang beer were only 100 baht!

As recommended by Jocus shop around for excursions. Plenty of tour operators and dive shops and prices will be very competitive. In November, the restaurants immediately to the left on White Sand Beach will be open plus Rim Lay (where you can book tours also) around the headland beyond that and then more past the Le Meridien. On the right past the Kantary is the Family Restaurant and past that the excellent Boatyard, a particularly good venue for a sunset dinner.

If they still offer it, although a tad expensive the Dinner by the Waterfall offered by Sarojin is a unique experience.

Popular day tours from Khao Lak include Similan, Surin Islands and Koh Tachai, north to Khao Sok National Park and the awesome Cheow Lan Lake and south to Phang Nga Bay.

These are two completely different types of resort in completely different locations.

The Sarojin is a small 5* luxury boutique resort, winner of two prestigious "Best Hotel in Thailand" Awards in 2010 and 2011, furnished in traditional Thai style and set in beautiful grounds and on beautiful Pak Weeb Beach, the best in Khao Lak. It is adjacent to the Kantary Resort on one side with just two beach restaurants in that direction and White Sand Beach with its three small resorts each with beach restaurant in the other. A shuttle or taxi takes about 20 minutes to Bang Niang or 25 minutes to Bang La On, the two main townships of Khao Lak, where there are plenty of restaurants, bars and shops. See pics of Sarojin at https:/… and of Pak Weeb Beach at https:/…

The Casa de la Flora is a new (April 2011) larger 5* luxury resort, each of its villas having their own small pool. No grounds as such and the beach frontage on Bang Niang Beach is quite narrow with the sea coming up to the retaining walls when the tide is in. It is furnished in modern style but some may find it a bit too minimalist. Very well equipped though. It is towards the northern end of the beach but is in easy walking distance of many restaurants and bars on or overlooking the beach and on the road leading upto and on the highway. See pics of the Resort at https:/… (the early ones were in December 2010 during completion of the resort) and Bang Niang Beach at https:/… (showing Casa de la Flora beachfront at 12 - 14) The new Ingfah Restaurant Lounge at the Casa de la Flora is getting very good reviews lately. See tripadvisor.co.uk/Restaurant_Review-g297914-…

So it depends whether you want quiet and secluded (the Sarojin) or more near restaurants, bars and shops.
