The hotel

Inspired by Phuket’s rich cultural and industrial history, The Slate, Phuket is an exotic oasis of calm, set just behind the secluded Nai Yang beach. Designed with the inspiration of the local tin-mining industry, local artwork, natural materials and luxury facilities will ensure you’ll have everything for a stay that is both authentic and indulgent. Close to some of Phuket’s finest beaches, The Slate has beautiful tropical gardens and a backdrop of dense rainforest for that 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.

Well worth the money to stay here, a warm welcome from the lovely team and our whole stay was fabulous. Set in beautiful tropical gardens you feel miles away from anywhere. It’s so quiet, the food is super, breakfast is amazing, 4 lovely pools and one which feels like you are away in the jungle. Really love the staff team they are so super helpful and kind. Set next to the beach with good security you can visit local shops and restaurants. Scuba diving place on site and free body boards, bikes for an hour plus towels for the beach. Great for adults and children. Read less

Fantastique séjour @The Slate! It was our first experience but sure not the last one! Hotel is amazing with a beautiful la escape and garden! The 3 swimming pool are perfect to enjoy either one with family and kids and other 2 for couples or teenager! You can find everything great food- pools- beautiful rooms-kids club- fitness and of course a beautiful beach!!! For the one who loves diving The very nice team at Sea Bees diving centre will escort you to discover under water world..But one of a kind team experience!! They are always here to help you! Probably one of the best first experience in a hotel due to the super friendly and dedicated team there! The beautiful beach is one of the most beautiful one I have seen! Not crowded, no jet ski as it is a natural reserve quiet, super good local food store and sunbeds to rent in a friendly and nice ambiance… I was a little afraid about the noise of planes as it is next to the airport but as it was not so busy I guess was super quiet and acceptable as majority of the flight take off at night specially big ones! Breakfast was excellent with fresh bakery for the Chef and lots of various dishes and if you go there don’t miss the Black Ginger experience! Beautiful - super good and surprising!!! Don’t miss the toilets;-) and come a bit earlier to enjoy a nice cocktail at their center bar!! What to say more than we will recommend it and come back for sure! Thank you fir this unforgettable time at your place Read less

The third party PCR testing service contracted and endorsed by the hotel does not provide results which meet international standards for fit-to-fly certification. Worse, the staff will lie to you when asked and say it does. This is absolutely unacceptable at any establishment, much less a five star resort, and especially seeing how everyone else… Read more
The third party PCR testing service contracted and endorsed by the hotel does not provide results which meet international standards for fit-to-fly certification. Worse, the staff will lie to you when asked and say it does. This is absolutely unacceptable at any establishment, much less a five star resort, and especially seeing how everyone else has figured out how to do this correctly. There was no accountability on the resort’s part, nor admission of responsibility, and no compensation offered for the additional expense and stress incurred on my part, which fairly ruined my weekend stay. There are a LOT of high quality resorts offering steep discounts on Phuket these days — do yourself a favor and stay somewhere else if you must travel during this pandemic, The Slate obviously does not care about your well being.

My favourite hotel in the world for short or medium breaks. Good alone or with friends. Beautiful gardens. Peaceful even when the hotel is full. Gorgeous pools including ones just for adults! It’s next to the beach as well so great for long walks and evening buzz. Love it!
