I have just come back from a week at Friendship Beach whilst doing a fasting and detox week at the Atmanjai Wellness centre there. I stayed in a beachfront twin room which had a great view of the islands and the sea at high tide just a metre away from the end of my patio area. The room was clean and well kept and as one of the recently refurbished rooms it was well appointed with nice accessories. clean linen and had a reasonable bathroom. Friendship beach has a great view onto the islands and has a very pleasant ambience to it. The restaurant and seating area has a very nice feel about it especially at night time. The staff are extremely polite and friendly. The menu has a great mix of standard dishes together with healthy and raw food choices for those guests who are staying and doing a detox. The longer I stayed the more I felt at home (I am a 45 year old Mum of two and travelled alone for my detox week and did not feel uncomfortable at all there). The only possible criticisms I could level were that there werent quite enough sunbeds around the pool area in truth and the beach area I gather is generally not that great in this area.
Spending a week doing the UltraCleanse programme at Atmanjai was quite an experience - it lived up to everything I was expecting and more. The centre has a pleasant, natural Thai feel to it and the staff are extremely warm and welcoming. Every time I walked in I was greeted with smiles and support. Michael and the team at Atmanjai offer a collection of experiences you can tap into to turn a detox week into a week of life-changing experiences if you care to seek them out. My week was pretty amazing, and I came home having had some insipirational moments and with lots of new ideas about my life, health and wellbeing.
