The Sarojin, Thailand’s luxurious 56-roomed boutique residence, has created a brand new ‘Wellness for the Soul’ package to help guests discover mindful, spiritual travel and those one-of-a-kind moments that travellers truly seek. From just THB 65,700 (approx. £1,500), two people can enjoy six nights in a luxurious garden residence, three yoga classes, a Spiritual Blessing of Love, a Phang Nga Temple Tour, the Street Food Cook for Kids initiative, private transfers to/from Phuket International Airport, and all day a la carte breakfast with sparkling wine (served until 6pm).
Taking part in The Sarojin’s Street Food Cook for Kids initiative with The Camillian centre, a not-for-profit organisation that provides day care facilities and rehabilitation for children with special needs, is a truly heart-warming, soulful experience. Spending the afternoon with the children at the centre, guests get the chance to support some of the region’s most vulnerable children, preparing a nutritious meal alongside The Sarojin’s sous chef. During this truly memorable afternoon, guests can engage with the children and help breakdown the barriers between cultures and languages in a sensitive and respectful manner that truly supports the local community.
With a sunrise Alms giving and Spiritual Blessing of Love at a local temple, guests will find themselves immersed in a contemplative, spiritual morning. Rising early, guests travel to the temple to offer the Buddhist monks a small basket of items as a sign of respect. In return they receive a blessing, which sees the monk gently pouring water over the recipient to cleanse the spirit, while chanting ancient Pali-Sanskrit, the perfect way to start the day feeling lighter and wonderfully calm.
Another inspiring ‘Wellness for the Soul’ experience is a visit to three of the region’s most important temples to learn more about Buddhism and the local culture. Starting with a visit to the Dragon Cave Temple, visitors will find themselves in a serene cave that offers a very special atmosphere, ideal for meditation and reflection. Heading high up the mountain, travellers reachBang Reang Temple, the largest temple pagoda in all of Phang Nga and home to a piece of Buddha’s bone. Offering breathtaking views across the stunning province, it is the perfect place to pause and absorb the serenity. Last, but certainly not least, is a trip to Wat Thamsuwankuhaone of Phang Nga’s most historic temples and home to a 15-metre long reclining Buddha statue, the largest in southern Thailand.
Completing the contemplative package are three morning yoga classes, the perfect way to make the most of the hotel’s serene and tranquil setting. Led by Justine Capdevielle, The Sarojin’s yoga teacher, guests are guided through a 75-minute restorative session of Vinaysa Yoga beside the hotel’s stunning pool.
To end a day in a truly special way, guests can add a Private Candlelit Jungle Waterfall Dinner to their stay for just THB 24,000 (approx. £550) for 2 persons. During this fine dining evening, guests will find themselves immersed in the beautiful scenery of Khao Lak, the perfect location to enjoy a mindful dinner with someone special.
For those wanting to add even more rejuvenation to their stay, guests can upgrade to a sumptuous Spa Suite, complete with separate living area and relaxation pool (from THB 3,000 / approx. GBP67 per night inclusive of taxes and daily breakfast) and receive one hour’s worth of Pathways Spa treatments per room, per night – perfect for indulging in daily massages or accumulating for a longer spa package.
With the new ‘Wellness for the Soul’ package, travellers will discover why The Sarojin is the perfect place for a truly restorative, spiritual Thai getaway without compromising on luxury.
