My husband and I spent 2 weeks at Friendship Beach Resort in Phuket in February. We both participated in the "Eat Well" detox program at Atmanjai. Although we were both initially quite sceptical of the idea of 'detoxing', we found the program really fantastic and felt rejuvenated with increased energy at the end. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly, especially Emily (Chinese Medicine doctor), Karol, (yoga instructor) and also the wonderful Thai reception staff - Poan, Jenny, Eouw and Tip. The daily massages were heavenly - thank you to Jumpee, Pla and Aood.
One of the highlights of our stay was the food! Before our arrival, we did not know how we would go eating only fruit and vegetable dishes for 2 weeks. However, Friendship Beach Resort has an amazing chef, Charlie, who provides a great variety of delicious and tasty dishes! Also, Charlie runs a cooking class each week, which is a MUST if you stay at Friendship Resort. Charlie is a very interesting character - extremely friendly and generous with his time! He was always eager to impart his considerable knowledge and also to ensure that we were happy with his creations by personally visiting our table each night to chat with us!
All in all, I can say that we really enjoyed our detox experience, which was greatly enhanced by the wonderful warm and caring staff.
