We stayed at the Slate for 7 nights and this is the first time we have stayed here (our third trip to Thailand). The Slate is by far the most amazing place we have ever stayed. We had the luxurious 2 bedroom family pool villa with 2 massive villas and a huge private pool. We have been looked after in every way with our amazing butler Teddy tending to our every need. From delivering drinks and afternoon snacks, to making restaurant reservations and booking taxi tours and a trip to the elephants, Teddy was the most attentive and wonderful butler making our stay just brilliant. The amenities here are fantastic and the resort is spacious so it never feels busy or crowded, just peaceful. All of the staff were wonderful and helpful. We will definitely be back and highly recommend to everyone. Thank you for making our stay perfect and enjoyable.

Hotel's Favourite
Like pretty much everyone who reviews this hotel, we cannot recommend it enough. I wondered if it was 'too good to be true', but it really is that good! From the moment you arrive, you feel like you are in an oasis of calm and luxury and are treated as if you are the most important person there. The resort is absolutely enormous! It took us a couple of days to even find the third pool - it wasn't a problem as all of the pools are incredible and you will find one to suit your mood (we changed location of pool on a daily basis......just because we could LOL!) One of the adult pools has a swim up bar which is just gorgeous - Tor is the barman there and is quite the character - he is amazing and will look after you royally. Ian and Dang are on duty round the other pools and will also look after your every need, and when you go for lunch at the restaurant, Ball will be on duty to make you feel special. The food is amazing - Soo at Breakfast will cater for your every need and with such a huge (and delicious) selection of foods you could spend all day there and will be spoilt for choice. The rooms are gorgeous - really comfy beds and a really good replenishment system of drinking water in your room each day - even the housekeeping staff are really friendly - the staff work ethic throughout the hotel is the best we have ever experienced in over 20 years of travelling to Thailand. The hotel itself is so well designed, it will take your breath away. Whoever dealt with the little touches as a nod to the history of being a tin mine deserves a medal - wherever you look or turn, there is a style statement which adds to the whole experience without being over the top. We bought lots of things from the hotel shop as we loved the whole design. My husband had a few health issues whilst we were there which were dealt with swiftly and professionally by the in house First Aid team, something we really appreciated as it is scary being ill when on holiday in a foreign country. Nothing was too much to ask. Nai Yang itself is also really lovely - the beach is just outside the hotel where you can find all sorts of food, massages from the ladies in the yellow tops on the beach (who are SUCH fun - give them a go - they've been without any earnings during all of Covid so are delighted to welcome you) and sunset bars to die for - the view is amazing when you watch the sun dissolve into the sea - just magical. As everyone has said, this really is a top class hotel with service and attitudes from the staff making this a truly memorable experience - we will be back as soon as we possibly can!

Dear Guest, Wow, what a headline! Your review is too good to be true :-) but after sharing with the team, they all agree that it is true. You made Khun Tor, Khun Ian, Khun Soo, Khun Dang and Khun Ball very proud today and this give them all further encouragement to continue to exceed guests expectations. It is them who make our guests feel at "home away from home" and deliver the genuine Thai hospitality the country is known for. I am glad to hear that you managed to find the third pool in only a couple of days, it took me more than 3 days when I started working at The Slate...LOL The Slate was designed by world-famous architect Bill Bensley. It combines industrial elements with traditional Thai décor and cutting edge art, set against a lush and opulent tropical paradise. I am thrilled to hear that you have enjoyed the style and the little touches. I am glad to know that our team were able to assist your husband and they all wish him well. We can't wait to welcome you back for another memorable stay, and please feel free to contact me directly and I will be more than happy in looking personally after your arrangements. With warm regards, Claude Claude Sauter General Manager / The Slate claude@theslatephuket.com

What a perfect place to finally escape the confines of Covid. The resort is on Nai Yang beach which is a very quiet area, close to the airport. The area has some very good restaurants, bars, cafes and is perfect because it is not over developed. This resort is special in so many ways. From the beautiful mature and well tended gardens to the resort style, which I suppose you could call Thai industrial chic. I have no negatives about this resort. Katie at reception was so welcoming as she checked us in and then gave us a tour of the resort and our room. Plus when we needed help or information she was always able to assist. Having breakfast here was very good with a superb and varied menu. Yes, the staff do also remember your morning beverage. Thank you Tan for my wifes peppermint tea and my double shot iced latte. The house keeping team are excellent. The rooms are kept clean and they pick up on little things and they are fixed, a blown light globe, a faulty plug in the basin, an extra mozzie coil, nothing was too much trouble. The pools are very good especially the adult pool with swim up bar. And the food at the signature restaurants is incredible. Black Ginger is a dining experience from the little boat at the beginning to the amazing room and food. My wife and I have 2 special occasions to celebrate towards the end of the year and another stay at The Slate for a double celebration is entirely possible. Thank you to everyone at the Slate, you made our vacation very special.

This was the fourth visit to the Slate by my wife and I. Located in picturesque and peaceful Nai Yang beach the Slate is a welcome change from the more hectic parts of Phuket. The gardens and charm of the Slate are big assets. We visited with a family group the family pool was great attraction. A short walk from the beach exit of the grounds are a range of restaurants, massage outlets and minimarts. A highlight of a visit to the Slate is the extensive breakfast and the friendliness of the staff.
