The tasteful modern design of the The Slate revisits Phuket’s past as a tin mining village; raw materials and shades of rust and graphite give the spacious rooms, suites and private villas idiosyncratic elegance. Individuality and privacy set the benchmark for the imaginative architecture—the work of Bensley Design Studio. The private villas with private pool offer luxury and intimacy. A highlight is the Coqoon Spa in the garden of this luxury hotel which offers wellness treatments at the flying "nest". Luxury Hotel: Individual design suites and private pool villas
Guests of the The Slate have a choice between private pavilions with private garden or pool, the family-friendly D-Buk suites or many other individually decorated rooms. The thematic design conclusively pervades all areas. Subtle details such as patina on furniture and carefully selected paintings and sculptures make each room unique. Surreal elements skillfully accentuate the interior. There are some luxury rooms available with a bath on the terrace. Intimacy and individuality are foregrounded at the The Slate, best known for its individuality and imaginative design as well as its large selection of luxury rooms, bungalows, villas and suites. Villas with a private pool offer couples or families a secluded place to relax. Bensley Design Studio, the designers of each of the rooms, plays with the motif of the local tin mining history. Beach Hotel: Nestled between the sandy beach and rain forest
The The Slate is located on one of Phuket’s finest beaches, Nai Yang beach. So you can go directly from the poolside to the ocean and enjoy the views of the Andaman Sea. There are also many more popular beaches on the Thai island which are in the immediate vicinity. Adjacent to this resort, are the species-rich forests of the Sirinat National Parks. Wellness Hotel: Massage therapy in the flying cocoons
The Coqoon Spa at The Slate in the Garden of Eden is wonderfully unique; set against the backdrop of the tropical rain forest the "flying" treatment rooms in the form of large cocoons are suspended in the trees, which are accessed via floating stairs. Inside the cocoons, massages and facial care help guests feel truly pampered. The cocoons themselves blend harmoniously into the nature with a design featuring shades of graphite. The motto "one with nature" has been admirably implemented here, as the cocoons are hardly noticeable between the silvery palm trees. In addition medical treatments such as wellness massages are offered. Scrubs, wraps, manicures and pedicures complete the package. Food & Drink: Authentic Thai grill and specialities from all over the world
The Slate offers an endless variety of dining options. In the Cotémer restaurant, situated directly next to the sea, the à la carte menu is served between 10 and 7pm. On Sundays there are also the expansive Classic Pearl Sunday Brunch from 12 to 3 pm, when the dress code is casual. Black Ginger, in the middle of a lagoon, is the pride of The Slate, specialising in exquisite Thai cuisine. Fresh seafood and dishes such as Som Tam and Panang Curry feature on the varied à la carte menu. The Rivet & Rebar combines fusion grill cuisine with a relaxing lounge for after-dinner drinks or a bottle from the extensive wine list. In the Tin Mine Thai specialities are prepared live before guests in traditional food stalls, and served with Tongkah Tin syndicate whiskeys from around the world. In the evening you can choose from a variety of satay, grilled ribs, tapas and salads from the international menu at the Cotémer. Each Tuesday and Saturday night, a barbecue buffet awaits the guests there.

Sports & Leisure: Unique Spa, 3 outdoor swimming pools, tennis, golf and water sports

Several gyms provide sporting activities whatever the weather, there are also various courses for yoga or martial arts held here. A pool table is available to hotel guests for free, and as the sea is only a few footsteps away, there are also a variety of water sports available to visitors. The Slate offers windsurfing, kayaking and scuba diving. Whether above or below water the Andaman Sea awaits discovery. Snorkelers will see a world of colourful fish and coral unfold before their very eyes in the Paradise Bay, whilst visitors can try out windsurfing and conquer the waves. Location: On the beach with views of the sea and mangrove forest
Located directly on the edge of the Nai Yang Beach and the Sirinat National Park, you can enjoy views of the Andaman Sea from the rooms and suites of The Slate. Between mangroves, coastal hibiscus and almond trees, guests can relax on the beaches and enjoy peace which is only broken by the singing of many species of birds, who live in the trees of the Sirinat Park. The Park includes many sandy beaches, of which the Mai Khao beach is the longest of the island. Sea turtles come here between November and February to lay their eggs. The centre of Phuket is located around 30 km away, and it is just 2 km to reach Phuket International Airport.
