“Nice Resort food average”
Reviewed 21 May 2014 via mobile

I called in here for lunch a few days ago.It is a nice beach front resort but out of Rawai. Staying here you would require taxi's to go anywhere.Restaurant is beach front and very nice when the tide is in.Food we had garlic bread which was very greasy but loaded with garlic. I had fish and chips the chips were frozen and the batter on my fish was soggy.I would not rush to come back as much better options in Rawai.

Had a long and relaxed lunch here, watching the tide go out. Thai food excellent, but if you have gone a little bit 'local', there are international choices too, including bangers and mash (from a pub in the Lake District!). Great value cocktails and very friendly service, along with a lovely pool for residents and restaurant guests. Well worth a visit.

This hotel has a great location if you like it quiet and on the beach. It's a little way out of Rawai so it helps if you have a car to take you into the resort. The food here is a very high standard and the staff are friendly and helpful. We stayed there for six nights in a standard room. The room design is a little unusual with the shower being outside of the room itself and the roof is open. Given the heat, that wasn't a problem but it was amusing when it was raining so you got wet from the shower and the rain! Our room had a terrace at the front of it and was lovely to be able to sit outside. Overall a great stay.

If you're a vegetarian staying in Phuket you have to start here. My wife is vegetarian and found it difficult to find acceptable vegetarian options... except at the Friendship Beach Resort.

The resort isn't one of the 5-star luxury places, but it doesn't pretend to be either. It is clean, well-maintained, has very nice accommodations, good people, good food, and a great pool. The service was sometimes a little slow, but that wasn't a big deal to us... the rest of the experience more than made up for waiting a few minutes here and there.

Overall, we recommend the Friendship.

We stayed as couple for 4 days.We could avail the gardenview room.It was clean good with beautiful bali style bathroom and all facilities .The swimming pool was just nearby.We spent quality time there.The tides were high in night and early morning when the beach was amazing.Beautiful place-lovely beach,scenaries,trees,breeze,rain,pool,food,friendly staff everything was excellant.
Only thing is it is expensive when one books taxis or other mode of transports for any trips/travel nearby when compared to taxis hired outside and when we booked the taxi from fantasea per se rather than hotel's taxi service which was almost three times more expensive!.
Except that its a heaven on earth.We didnt avail the wellness/yoga/detox services as it was too less a time spent there.Anyways worth the time of travel we had done.(Bangalore to Rawai!!-almost 14-15 hrs)

Room Tip: Garden view rooms are equally good and cheaper compared to beach front rooms

Thank you very much for your review and its nice to hear that you had a great time at Friendship Beach. We do use an outsourced company for taxi services to other destinations on the island and are not able to negotiate cheaper taxi fares on behalf of our guests.
Taxis in Phuket are generally more expensive than in other parts of Thailand.

My husband and I spent 12 days here in May 2013. We completed a detox program at Atmanjai and stayed in a stunning room overlooking the pool and the beach. The resort is so relaxing and right on the beach in a quiet part of Phuket. Massages are to die for and the food served at the restaurant is nutritious and healthy... really tasty too with vegetarian and Thai dishes along with local organic seafood, poultry and other produce used. We fell in love with the staff who were always willing to go the extra mile for us no matter what the request was. Transport was handy and the resort is a great place to unwind from the busyness of life. Each day we were greeted with a smile and an invitation to start our day with yoga, green smoothie or a beach swim. What a terrific experience. After successfully completing our detox we left feeling revitalized and ready to take on the world. There is a huge selection of natural therapies and specialists available to guests both on site and close by. Dental and medical appointments can be arranged too. I highly recommend both Atmanjai and Friendship Beach resort if you are looking for a quiet getaway with healthy choices at your fingertips.
