This resort has absolute beach frontage and you are able to rent rooms literally on the waterfront. I opted for a King size double room overlooking the pool and was totally satisfied... comfy bed pillows, efficient aircon and private balcony with sun lounges. The staff are all amazing and most of them speak English. I stayed on my own as I was attending the Detox Centre next door (Atmanjai - also a great experience) and felt completely safe and well looked after. There is a good sized pool with plenty of sun lounges .. you can see the beach whilst sitting at the pool. The restaurant serves refreshments all day long.. either served to you by the pool or in the restaurant itself and the food is fantastic ... delicious and great value for money. Unfortunately I could not use the restaurant for the 3 days I was on the detox, however they were happy for us "detoxers" to bring our delicous raw salads to the tables overlooking the beach allowing us to enjoy the view with the other diners. The resort itself is not luxurious, but it has a bohemian, casual and pefectly relaxing atmosphere which is hard to beat. Only 5 minutes from Rawai with its great restaurants and market, perhaps 200 baht by taxi. On the main road behind the resort there is a 7 eleven and a little beauty salon that offers great massages (I had massage/manny and pedi for 500 baht). I had such a wonderful time at Friendship Beach that after I checked out to continue my holiday with friends in Phuket we made a special trip across the island to enjoy a beautiful lunch with its fabulous postcard views and ambience. I cannot wait to return to Friendship Beach Resort.
