Guiding guests towards health, vitality and happiness, Atmanjai retreat is a wellness resort in Phuket, Thailand. Split between two resorts—a luxury hotel and on-site residences—there’s something to suit every budget and traveller type. While the focus is on detox with three comprehensive programmes and additional fasting or purification modules, the resort also offers yoga and fitness packages for the more active holidaymaker.

Location

Situated on a pristine stretch of beach facing idyllic Chalong Bay, Atmanjai is located on the southern end of Phuket. The resort is based 50 km from the hustle and bustle of the city centre, so it is peacefully tranquil.

The Friendship Beach Resort has three accommodation options: Deluxe Rooms (with king-size and twin-size beds), Two-Bedroom Suites (with a king-size bed and a second bedroom with either king or two to three twin beds), and shared rooms (dormitory-style rooms featuring two single beds).

Serenity Resort & Residences also offers three room styles including the Serenity Rooms (with king-size bed), Serenity Suites (with king-size bed and spacious living area), and Two-Bedroom Grand Seaview Suites (with two king-size beds and spacious living and dining area).

Food Programme

Made from high-quality imported foods and local products, the menu at Atmanjai features a wide variety of dishes ranging from traditional Thai food to delicious western favourites. The chef doesn’t use artificial colours, flavours or MSG in any of the dishes, and there is a great vegetarian menu brimming with natural, unprocessed ingredients. A delicious range of vegan and raw food dishes are also on offer and the restaurant also has a special ‘Fitness Menu’ to complement the ‘Balance Fitness Program’.

Atmanjai also offers an ‘Eat Well Program’ and ‘Ultra Cleanse Program’ for those interested in detoxing. They use local herbs as well as imported FDA-approved vitamins, mineral supplements, cold-pressed oils and other natural body-cleansing agents to enhance the detox experience.

Treatment Programme

Atmanjai offers three different wellness programmes revolving around detox, yoga and fitness, with a specific focus on fasting, detoxification and tissue cleansing. All programmes have an optional module for fresh raw juices to be added, and the possibility to tailor an individual package for specific needs. Designed to cleanse the body of toxins, activate improved digestion, increase optimal organ function and restore the body back to harmonious balance, the detox programmes introduce guests to cleansing techniques such as fasting, juicing, herbal steaming and colonic purification. Ranging from gentle to intense, these packages include infrared sauna sessions, ozone therapy and ‘Ultrasonic Zapper’ treatments which promise to destroy harmful parasites, bacteria, fungus and viruses while energising the immune system, cleaning blood and stimulating cellular regeneration.

The retreat’s Yoga Holiday Program is a health-related holiday, leaning primarily on the practice of yoga combined with healthy eating; while the Fitness Programs focus on weight loss, fitness improvement and healthy lifestyle guidance.
