Just a five-minute drive from the island’s recently remodeled airport, The Slate is the perfect choice for a hassle-free trip that is a world away from the hustle and bustle of daily life.
The Slate was originally designed by internationally-acclaimed architect Bill Bensley. The hotel is firmly rooted in Phuket’s past where the design and unique experiences reflect and honour the island’s history, customs, heritage and cuisine. Guests who stay at The Slate can fully immerse and experience all local elements and offerings – be it within the confines of the property or visit the sights around.

Set in a tropical garden with eight double private treatment rooms, the destination spa is home to a series of relaxing and rejuvenating experiences. Go through a bespoke spa programme that incorporates traditional Thai healing and holistic wellness.
Guests can complete their wellness experience by attending a yoga session by Khun Mam, the latest addition as The Slate’s yoga specialist, featuring Ashtanga yoga – where breath and alignment principles are used to promote relaxation and healing, as well as weight loss yoga, aimed at cleansing, balancing, and rejuvenating the inner organs and optimising their functions. For those looking to keep fit during their stay, The Slate offers a wide variety of classes for every energy level, including tennis, kickboxing, Muay Thai, and Pilates – fitness on the hour at every hour.
With distinct dining concepts at The Slate, guests can encounter a different dining experience at every lunch and dinner during their weekend stay.
