4 of us called in there in the evening with the intention of having dinner. Ordered drinks which were a little expensive but okay. Had a look at the menu but found it rather uninspiring and leaning towards healthy eating rather than holiday eating. We were the only customers there and the restaurant area just did not have any vibe... More

I had researched this place as part of a tour around Phuket island. It is down a wee gravel road, off the main road. This place is an oasis. It's quiet, has a lovely dining area situated right on the beach. The beer was cold, the food was great and the prices were just right. The staff were very attentive,... More

The view is great and there are not a lot of options in that area. That's probably why they don't make efforts for what they serve. The food was AWFUL and my pina colada had no alcohol whatsoever.

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
