Conclusive reasons to visit The Slate in Phuket this year.
Phuket’s hidden gem, The Slate recently underwent a makeover to make it more exquisite than it was before. Located just 5 minutes away from the Phuket International Airport, The Slate is set against the beautiful tranquil shores of Nai Yang Beach, providing a myriad of activities for all energy levels and eight different restaurants to meet every whim. Here are five reasons why everyone should make it a must-visit for 2017.
A Hotel Rich in Phuket’s True History
The Slate remains firmly rooted in Phuket’s past where design and experiences honour local history, customs, heritage and cuisine. The hotel pays homage to Phuket’s tin mining history and the owner’s, Wichit Na-Ranong, family’s role in that once-flourishing trade and the unknown history of Phuket.
A Stunning Bill Bensley Design
A Bill Bensley masterpiece, The Slate combines metalic industrial with traditional Thai décor and cutting edge art set against a lush and opulent tropical paradise. The mechanical touches to the interiors, metal sculptures made from old tin working machinery, industrial lighting and traditional wooden-beamed roofs reference the island’s mining past.
Land, Sea and Beyond
Set beside the tranquil shores of Nai Yang Beach and surrounded by the protected Sirinat National Park, The Slate presents endless activities on land and at sea including diving, paddle boarding, and kayaking. Spend a day out on the water and experience the abundant marine life that the Andaman Sea has to offer. Alternatively, stay on the property and take Thai cooking classes, relax in a private yoga class, delve into the local culture with a biking adventure or unwind with your feet in the sand.
Private Pool Villas
The Slate is an all-suite property but for those looking to up the ante, stay in one of the property’s private pool villas. Villas feature an expansive interior space, abundant terraces and free-form private pools. Guests can expect fast track airport services and transfers, unpacking services, in-villa breakfasts, 24-hour butler services as well as a jet lag massage.
Coqoon and Rejuvenate
For an afternoon of bliss visit the Coqoon spa – set against a luscious rainforest and tropical garden with seven double private treatment rooms. The destination spa is home to a series of relaxing and rejuvenating experiences. Go through a bespoke spa program that incorporates traditional Thai healing and holistic wellness.
