When we booked Friendship Beach Resort we thought of being out of the overly busy Patong area, but still within Phuket, and right at the beach, which we got it all. The hotel is located in a very relaxing area of the island and right at the beach, so we could enjoy our delicious breakfast staring at the sea.
The pity is that the sea level goes down very quickly during the afternoon so there will only be the swimming pool left for a swim and gladly the pool was very nice!
Part of the resort is a wellness centre, where they offer detox packages and plenty of yoga and massage options.
The hotel restaurant is focused on healthy options but also with a wide variety of cuisines and to all tastes, simply delicious food and very very nice fresh juices, all prepared with love.
The staff was the highlight of our stay and made us feel very welcome besides being always very very helpful.
The hotel rooms (ours were the deluxe, if I'm not mistaken) were designed very nicely with a separate toilet room and the shower placed outdoors (my favorite!). A natural citronella mosquito repellent spray was part of the already very nice room amenities, which we thought was such a sweet gesture from the hotel to anticipate the needs of the guests.
Please bear in mind since the hotel is in the very south of Phuket, it will take about 1 hour drive to the main pier for the boat trips towards the touristic islands. We went one night to Patong to check the area and could also buy the tours for much cheaper price than whats offered in the hotel, basically because there are more options. All agencies will include pick up and drop off at the hotel, which is great.
