Friendship Beach Waterfront Resort
The beach resort, a newly renovated vacation resort haven, is located in the quiet southern area of Phuket Island on the waterfront of Chalong Bay. Friendship Beach is removed from the hustle and bustle of the usual frantic tourist spots located a few kilometers away, this vacation resort offers a respite from daily activities and local night life. It is private, secure and pleasurable and fulfills all your lodging requirements for a short or long term stay.
The swimming pool and professionally landscaped grounds serve as backdrop for the serene beauty and marine activity of Thailand’s largest island resort destination. Hardly a moment goes by that there is not some activity on the beach; horse riding in the sand, Thai fishermen casting their nets, long-tail boats unloading their wares, shell gathering and children exploring the tidal pools.
At sunset the beach resort is at its best. The sky casts unimaginable streams of soft colored hues of pastel cascading throughout the sky. In the distance the lights of various islands announce their presence. Tour boats lit like small cities traverse the waterways traveling locally or from Phuket Island to Singapore.
Friendship Beach Waterfront Resort is a tranquil lodging beach resort oasis that will enhance and compliment your holiday activities be they scuba diving, snorkeling, yachting, sport fishing, wind-surfing, Para-sailing sightseeing or shopping. At Friendship Beach our accommodations allow you to relax and enjoy outstanding Thai and Western cuisine (no MSG), long private walks along ten kilometers of unspoiled beach, sit and watch the ever changing scene of color and light, enjoy the extraordinary bird life and boating activity.

Apartments - 1 or 2 Bedroom
Special care has been taken to provide the most comfortable surroundings, both inside and outside, for Apartment users. Each unit is equipped and decorated in a Thai / Western theme with all the amenities. TV, phone, kitchen, sitting room and laundry are all standard. All Apartments are unique. There may be an outside shower, an extra bedroom, or a bedroom opening onto a private garden. One unit is literally 15 feet from the ocean with the bedroom and living room opening to the sea. All Apartments are spacious with a feeling of openness with light and airy overtones.
Far above the standard for Thai accommodations, the rooms are clean, comfortable and close to the pool and beach. All units have been remodeled within the past year and are reasonably priced. Some have a private garden, walk-in closet and outside shower. The modest exteriors don’t adequately reflect the inside graciousness; however, they blend nicely with the landscaping and feeling of the resort.
