10 Reasons to Visit the Slate in Phuket This Year

May 13, 2017 Resort News No Comments Email Email

Recently re-launched The Slate has a genuine and authentic Phuket heart at its core. Originally designed by internationally acclaimed architect Bill Bensley, the hotel has evolved with refreshed looks and unique new experiences for family holidays, food lovers, curious culture seekers and wellness aficionados. Here are 10 reasons why everyone should make it a must-visit for 2017.

1. Five minutes from the airport Just five minutes away from Phuket International Airport, on the northern shore, The Slate is next to a pristine and secluded beach. The convenient location makes it the perfect destination for a hassle-free trip that is a world away from the hustle and bustle of daily life.

2. 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 onceflourishing trade and the unknown history of Phuket.

3. 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.

4. 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.

5. Fitness classes on the hour every hour For those looking to stay fit while they travel, The Slate offers a wide variety of classes for every energy level including tennis, Muay-Thai boxing, and Pilates. For a more relaxing experience, take part in a private yoga class with Charlene Limoges, a wellness and yoga specialist to balance the mind and stretch the body.

6. Food lover’s dream Dining at The Slate is an experience of its own, with eight distinct concepts. Guests can stay on the property for three nights without having to dine at the same restaurant. Diners can experience a mouth-watering journey through Thailand’s history with all-time favourites such as ‘Pad Thai’, ‘som tam’, and fresh spring rolls at Black Ginger. For modern Asian cuisine, dine at Rivet & Rebar that offers an exciting blend of tastes and spices.

7. One of the oldest cooking schools in Phuket Go beyond dining and take it a step further with a cooking class at one of the oldest cooking schools in Phuket, Moo’s Kitchen. Chef Arunrat Chaipakdee or affectionately known as Chef Ann to everyone, shares her love and knowledge for cooking. Visit local markets and learn the secret to preparing gourmet Thai dishes using only the freshest locally-sourced ingredients.

8. Family Haven The villas and suites offer ample space for the whole family with the activities packed kids club – Tin Box Kids and a dedicated family pool. Family-friendly activities include junior cooking classes, the petit sommelier programme that encourages junior guests to enhance their tastebuds, a dedicated spa menu complete with face painting and hairdo, and an exploratory night safari seeking frogs and fishes along the way. These activities give adults ample time to unwind at the Pulley Bar, an adults-only swim up bar with smooth beats or at the Infinity Pool, the perfect secluded haven to relax and soak up the ambience.

9. Private Pool Villas The Slate is an all suite property but for those looking to up the anty, 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.

10. Coqoon and rejuvenate For an afternoon of unashamed 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.

The Slate is currently offering a stay for four nights at the price of three. Guests will also get a guaranteed late check-out till 2pm, daily breakfast, airport transfers and a complimentary muay thai boxing, tennis or paddle board lesson for two. All additional nights will be available at 30% off the standard rate, for all room types except for the D-Buk Suites. This is valid for stays from now until 31st July and 1st September until 30th November 2017.
