The art-inspired beachfront retreat in Phuket showcases a wide selection of products in an attractive new e-commerce platform, including original items created in collaboration with Bill Bensley’s design studios
The Slate Phuket, the whimsical art-inspired beachfront resort on the island’s secluded northwest coast, is giving its global community of fans and followers the chance to bring its style and scent into their own homes with the launch of The Stockroom, an exciting new online shop.
While much of the world is still unable to travel, many people will be missing the opportunity to immerse their senses in The Slate’s extraordinary ambience. Through this new online platform however, travellers from all around the globe can now acquire and own a part of The Slate, including its distinctive home décor, Inis jewellery, original fashion and accessories, sublime spa products and more. These products are not available in high street shops, so they create a deeply personal connection between the resort and its cherished clientele.
This bond is strengthened even further by “The Slate Designs”, an exclusive collection of products that has been crafted in collaboration with Bill Bensley’s studios. This gives customers a unique opportunity to introduce this acclaimed designer’s work into their homes, while a selection of gift cards offer one-of-a-kind presents for their loved ones.
During this challenging time, when international travel is still subject to restrictions, shopping at The Stockroom will allow past guests to revive magical memories of their vacations and others to discover the resort’s whimsical wonders for the first time. For example, if a couple has enjoyed an unforgettable epicurean experience at Black Ginger, The Slate’s mesmerising Thai dining destination, they can now buy the shield wall lamps that adorn the famous alley leading to the restaurant. Or if a visitor wants to revive the sensation of soaking in The Slate’s famous art bathtub, which was imagined by Bill Bensley, they can now order this iconic fixture for their own bathroom. The resort’s feather-soft bed linen is on sale, promising the perfect night’s sleep, and The Slate’s industrial silverware and Rivet oil lamps are sure to be hot topics of conversation at any future dinner party.
The Stockroom also lets customers evoke the sensory elements of The Slate, with a collection of blissful bathroom products and essential oils. The fragrance of white champaka was personally selected by The Slate’s owner, Krystal Prakaikaew Na-Ranong (or Khun Moo, as she is better known), to be the property’s signature scent. The oil of this native tree has been incorporated into a wide range of bathroom amenities that are now on sale online, including shampoo, shower gel, room spray, after sun oil, body spray and more.
White champaka trees grow within the grounds of The Slate and the oils are harvested and produced locally, ensuring that the benefits of The Stockroom filter down to the community. Their aromas are also believed to have health benefits, helping to combat dizziness, fever and nausea, among other ailments.
“At The Slate, we care passionately about all our guests and deeply regret that many international travellers are still unable to enjoy our warm, southern Thai hospitality. By opening up The Stockroom, we are bringing our art-inspired interiors and essence into people’s lives – including exclusive pieces by Bill Bensley’s design studios and even our signature floral scent. We will meet again soon, but until then, we hope that our loyal fans will be able to recreate The Slate’s enchanting atmosphere safely in their own homes,” said Khun Moo.
A member of the prestigious Design Hotels collection, The Slate is an intimate retreat that embraces guests in an ambience of post-industrial art, world-class wellness and global gastronomy.
To celebrate the opening of The Stockroom, The Slate is now offering free delivery of all purchases within Thailand until the end of October 2021. International customers who order the resort’s signature white champaka essential oils before 31st July 2021 will also enjoy a special promotional price of THB 580 per bottle and no delivery charges* to many countries around the world, including Australia, Hong Kong, Russia, the UAE, UK and USA. Other signature bathroom products are also available, starting from just THB 280.
