The Sarojin in Khao Lak, Thailand launches new island safari

Boutique Thai beach resort The Sarojin in Khao Lak has launched a new island tour offering guests the chance to explore the offshore island of Koh Prathong. The luxury 56-suite resort has recently added the guided Koh Prathong Island Safari to its list of nature and cultural excursions that include jungle zip-lining, river rafting, meeting the elephants and experiencing local life.

According to the resort, the brand new safari will help guests discover the unspoilt natural beauty of Khao Lak's surrounding areas with an expert naturalist guide and offers a chance to spot the increasingly rare Lesser Adjutant bird.

Departing The Sarojin in the early hours of the morning for the best chance of seeing the Lesser Adjutant, the safari takes guests on a boat over to the island of Koh Prathong. Starting with a short trek, guests can discover the hundreds of species of birds, insects, fauna and flora that call the island home, including the grey-headed fish eagle, vernal hanging parrot and red-breasted parakeet.

After breakfast at a local homestay, the island tour continues by tuk-tuk to explore the island’s topography including mangrove-lined seas and thick natural savannahs.

The hotel offers a range of other excursions, from elephant and jungle canoe safaris in Khao Sok and pleat boat trips through the so-called Little Amazon area to trekking through the local jungles. There are also zip-lining and bamboo rafting experiences through Khao Lak Lamru National Park, plus the Tonepariwat Wildlife Sanctuary excursion to explore the pristine tropical forest with all-terrain-vehicles and white water rafting.

For guests interested in local culture, The Sarojin's long-standing authentic Glimpse of Local Life tours include a visit to the ancient town of Takuapa to provide alms offerings to local Buddhist monks or meeting local mahouts and fisherman to learn about their lives and support the local community.

The Sarojin is set on an 11km-stretch of secluded white sand beach in Khao Lak, a 55-minute drive north of Phuket Airport, and is surrounded by five national parks and the world-famous dive sites of the Similan and Surin Islands. Designed in a contemporary Asian style, the five-star resort's 56 deluxe residences feature private gardens and sundecks, couples’ baths with waterfall showers, and plunge and relaxation pools that blend into the natural habitat.

The resort’s other facilities include swimming pools, a spa, boutique eateries and complimentary use of a fully equipped fitness centre, mountain bikes, sailing catamarans, sail boats, sea kayaks and windsurfing boards.
