The most reliable taxis at the Phuket airport are located inside the terminal just outside the
baggage claim area and charge approximately 1,000 from Phuket International Airport to Friendship
Beach Resort & Atmanjai Wellness Spa. Tell them you want to go to Rawai. We are located 2.6
kilometers south of Chalong Circle (between Chalong Circle and Rawai) on the left/ocean side
of the road. The taxi ride is approximately 40 minutes.
Metered taxis are also good provided they are available. Their kiosk is located outside the
airport exit on the right.
Beware of the cabs operating just outside the airport exit as they will not take you directly
to your destination. They will stop at a tour company or retail shop or even other resorts.
This is, of course, so they can receive a commission. If you are caught in this situation,
you must be firm and tell them to go where you want to go.
We are a small resort and do not offer taxi service. We can send a van or taxi for you but
if your plane is late you will be charged waiting time. It is more cost effective to arrange
for transportation per paragraph #1 above.
When leaving Friendship Beach or when traveling around the island, the staff will arrange
reliable taxi service for you.
