The hotel

Inspired by Phuket's rich cultural and industrial history, The Slate, Phuket (formerly the Indigo Pearl) is an exotic oasis of calm and tranquility, situated just behind the secluded Nai Yang beach. Designed with the inspiration of the local tin mining industry, the hotel uses local artworks, natural materials and luxury facilities to ensure you'll have everything you need for a stay that is both authentic and indulgent! Close to some of Phuket's finest beaches, The Slate boasts beautiful tropical gardens amidst a backdrop of dense rainforest creating a true Thai experience. The accommodation is divided into villas and pool suites, each combining luxury, authenticity, comfort and convenience, to make sure you get the best possible night's sleep. At Black Ginger, The Slate's magnificent floating restaurant, you can experience the subtle, sensuous flavours of Phuket whilst marvelling at the beauty of your spectacular surroundings. The black interior, shot through with accents of brilliant blue from the chandeliers, creates the perfect backdrop for sampling some of Thailand's most innovative culinary delights. For pre and post-dinner drinks, there's open air lounge bar Rebar, where you can relax with a cocktail as you soak up the sun. If you're looking for the ultimate luxury pampering experience, The Slate's Coqoon Spa is the place to go. Devoted exclusively to wellness and indulgence, the spa features luxurious double treatment rooms, a private swimming pool, steam showers, a sauna and a Jacuzzi.

This resort may not be to everyones taste due to it's industrial fitout which reflected Phuket's past tin mining indusry. The only issue we had with the fitout was the lack of a toilet door, a curtain screen was unsatisfactory on both privacy and hygiene counts.

This resort may not be to everyones taste due to it's industrial fitout which reflected Phuket's past tin mining indusry. The only issue we had with the fitout was the lack of a toilet door, a curtain screen was unsatisfactory on both privacy and hygiene counts. This minor issue aside, the resort was well appointed with three pools, two of which were designated adults only, three restaurants and two casual lunch cafes. We occupied a pool suite which was comfortable and spacious. The private pool served us well and added to the enjoyment of our stay. The staff at The Slate were friendly and willing to ensure all guests had the best experience possible. These attributes were evident in all staff from house keeping, restaurant, conciege and reception. Our special thanks go to Choong at the Tin Mine for her service at dinner, to Ang and her breakfast team for the excellent breakfast and service provided each morning and to Maria for making our anniversary special and stay very pleasant.

Stayed here on our honeymoon. It was in july so quiet season, which meant the adult only pools were nice and quiet. Staff came around with water, towel, pineapple during our time relaxing by the pool. There is a good selection at breakfast.

Stayed here on our honeymoon. It was in july so quiet season, which meant the adult only pools were nice and quiet. Staff came around with water, towel, pineapple during our time relaxing by the pool. There is a good selection at breakfast. We were given a free drink each at the bar so we used our voucher one nice, the bar had pool table and darts board which was a nice way to spend the evening. Venue is great being only 10mins from the hotel. If you walk out the back of the hotel onto the beach front, there are plenty of restaurants to choose from. The only issue we had was wifi was very weak in our room throughout our stay. Prob would expect this to be better from a 5star hotel. Read less
