The Friendship Beach is low key. Very laid back and peaceful. The wind blowing in across the bay is cooling, some days the bay is filled with kite surfers skimming across the bay. Across from Friendship beach is the Atamanjai wellness retreat. What this means is the options for healthy food are extraordinary. Lots of raw food options and juices.... More

Well I wasn't really impressed with my husbands selection of room, but he was being a bit tight on the spending lol. But sitting out looking over the water I must say was just beautiful. I would stay again

Swallow sea for 100 meters. Very hot sea water. Safe for swimming but better to mind your steps as we found sharp garbages on.

We were looking some nice beach restaurant on the raw area so we tried this one. The view is spectacular, but that is. Food quality and services was not according to prices. As it is hotel as well, they will add 17% tax and service fee to your bill. We have visited and tried a many restaurant during your Phuket... More

A small beachfront resort with a relaxed atmosphere attentive staff and great poolside food. The salt water pool is surrounded by recliners and covered dining areas.
