Where Do You Want Your Table?

The Sarojin Thailand Resort is not like any other resort you may have visited, it stands out from all of the rest.

I have taken cooking classes which are usually held in a kitchen where they give you all of the equipment but the Sarojin does everything with a flair for originality.

Even lunch can be an adventure!

First the guide took me to the Takuapa River, inside the Khao Lak Lam Ru National Park, for a jungle adventure on a pleat boat.  Pleat boats are designed for shallow waters to move close to see wildlife and flora.

After seeing monkeys, birds, and other wildlife along the mangrove trees, my guide stopped at a river bank and we were greeted by Chef Gogh, Chef of the Sarojin’s Thai Restaurant.

It was amazing the way he transported the wild river bank into a setting for a Thai cooking class!  Everything was there, a table for two set with a linen table cloth, silverware and glasses. Another work table was prepared for the Thai cooking class.

Being out on the river bank surrounded by nature seemed so exciting while I cut vegetables and followed Chef Gogh’s instructions.  It was good that these recipes were easy because I usually do not spend much time in the kitchen.

The guide and Chef helped until everything was ready.  Chef Gogh brought everything to the table in plates beautifully decorated with flowers and leaves. 

This private luncheon was not a picnic, it was a feast!

What a wonderfully romantic idea for couples!

Our three course lunch included Yam Nue Yang (grilled beef salad), Gaeng Kiew Warn Gai (green chicken curry with eggplant and coconut milk), Tom Yam Goong (traditional spicy prawns soup with roasted chili paste and fragrant herbs), Khao Suay (steamed jasmine rice), and mixed fresh fruits.

As the owner & Executive Director, Kate Kemp, expressed, ‘I want to allow our guests to touch and feel the country.  We have our own team of guides, tours, and boats, so we can tailor-make a day or evening just for them inside or outside the resort.  We like to be compared to staying with a very good friend who can show them the special places for the warmest off- the-beaten- track experiences.  You should not feel like a tourist.  This special experience if for all of our guests all of the time, it does not have to only be for a honeymoon, anniversary or other special occasion.  Everyday should be a special occasion here at the Sarojin.  Our “Imagineer” sits with you and says, ‘What do you want to do tomorrow or where do you want your table?’ Just think a minute and use your imagination!”   (Continued)

The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) recommends 10 places that are a must for all tourists to visit:
