The Slate

Phuket, Thailand

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.

What can I say this is the best hotel I have a stayed in. Many places claim five stars but they are nowhere near that. Yes it is minimum five stars. If you’re looking for the best this is IT, anything less keep looking. I actually stay at hotels that are only four and five star and I have only found this to be truly five-star rest no way!

Great hotel with a pool without children for adults only. Beautiful hotel, large terrain, direct access to the beach. This was a traditional hotel before taking the name Slate. We will come agin for sure.

It’s worth it to book a private villa. We stayed in a one bedroom villa - it is so much nicer and better than a suite. Not just amenities upgraded better but the whole lot better. Luxury is about space and the villa offers just that. I love the double sinks and double toilets in one bathroom. This villa also comes with a spa room which has steam… Read more
It’s worth it to book a private villa. We stayed in a one bedroom villa - it is so much nicer and better than a suite. Not just amenities upgraded better but the whole lot better. Luxury is about space and the villa offers just that. I love the double sinks and double toilets in one bathroom. This villa also comes with a spa room which has steam and sauna. You don’t have to leave your villa at all. If you ever want to leave, it is only for when you go to Black Ginger! The whole experience is not to be missed and this is not an overrated hotels restaurant. If anything this is underrated. The price is good. It’s THB1,200 per person for a set menu. And it’s very good!! Cocktails are also great. If you like design and art, this resort is for you. But again! Trust me! Do the villa! Read less

Very cool design hotel with brilliant and interesting design features everywhere. Perfect for the Instagram set. The gardens are incredibly beautiful with a fantastic pool area. The staff are lovely, taking the time to ensure a lovely stay. They'll go out of their way to make you feel welcome. The beach across the road is nice with a few local restaurants and bars. We've stayed in Phuket many times and this area was a hidden gem for us. I highly recommend the hotel and a special bonus is that you’re only 15 mins from the airport. Read less
