I spent a couple of nights at The Slate at the end of my holiday; it was a luxe treat. I picked the hotel because it’s located close to Phuket Airport (10 mins drive) and therefore ideal for my 7am flight back to Bangkok. The hotel is absolutely stunning and combines industrial chic and clever design, with beautiful gardens and...

Our first stay at The Slate was memorable, easy transfer from the hotel to an impressive, design focussed, 'steam punk' style industrial resort. There are a variety of rooms available (just over 170) all set around some impressive landscaping which is well maintained. We stayed on a B&B basis in a pool plunge room. Perfect for relaxing, but if you...

The Slate is a great hotel not far from the Phuket airport. It's quite a large complex, and you're shuttled to your rooms by golf cart. There are 3 pools (two are adult only), and one has a swim-up bar in it. The reception was nice, but took some time to get registered. All of the front office staff are...

This is our fourth stay since 2010, and it is the only hotel we return to in Phuket. We have stayed at Twin Palms, Pullman and Regency, but Indigo Pearl (the new Brand name - the Slate, takes some time to get used to) is something special. It is the small things that management have looked into and improved that...
