Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

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

My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon and had the most amazing time! The food was all so delicious, the pool was the perfect temperature and clean, the staff were all so helpful and accommodating, and the resort is full of beautiful luscious green everywhere. The location of the slate is PERFECT. It’s a minute drive from the airport, and it’s located directly in front of Naiyang beach. We had a lot of fun walking the beach every morning, going to the food stalls during the evening, and enjoying some of the bars after! It was the perfect location full of lots to do!

We went to the spa twice during our stay and had the most relaxing time. We did the “Mr. and Mrs. package” so we had a massage, a facial, and a milk bath our first time and then our second time we did a body wrap and lymphatic massage. All of them were very comfortable and we would recommend. We also experienced the vitamin drip at Kru one morning, and the staff were so helpful and calming. My husband and I felt incredible after having this done!

The front desk was so helpful in arranging travel for us to go out for plans we had made and covid tests we had to take. It took all of the stress out of figuring out how we would get anywhere, which was SO NICE! They were very helpful when it came to recommending the best markets to visit or things to do on the way to something we had planned already so we weren’t wasting any time!

My husband and I reserved both the romantic private dinner and the chefs table experience. They were both INCREDIBLE! For our romantic dinner we had a bottle of champagne with a table covered in rose petals and a 4 course dinner that we basically licked the plate clean! They set us up in one of their suites because it was supposed to rain, and wow it was so beautiful and romantic. The chefs table experience we would highly recommend as well as it was 4 courses that took place in 4 different rooms! It was such a neat experience to have a change of scenery each course. The chef made incredible food both nights and we were NOT disappointed!

We stayed in the private pool resort and it was our perfect oasis when we needed some time for us. There were punkawalla fans that you could turn on and it would keep you perfectly comfortable while enjoying a drink on the patio. We would definitely stay in one of these again!

We had the most perfect honeymoon and a lot of it was spent just enjoying time at the resort and Naiyang beach. There is so much here to do and enjoy, we would recommend staying here to anyone! We can’t wait to come back again sometime soon!

The hotel is stunning.

From the designer interior to the friendly staff who will bend over backwards at a drop of a hat to help you - staying here is luxury at its best.

Whilst the hotel is located at the pristine Nai Yang Beach & National Park which has the whitest of sands and clearest of waters to enjoy, it the hotel which whisks you away to luxury settings.

There's a choice of 3 pools (including an adults only pool with a sunken pool bar to indulge in during their 'no rush' hour), the mind-blowing Black Ginger restaurant which you can only enter via raft and the hotel will also provide you with private BBQ dining on the beach to enjoy the sunset whilst your feet are in the sand.

For the level of service, comfort and overall experience, it's great value for money and frankly, it's the only place to stay if you're in Phuket!

We stayed at the Slate for a week towards the end of Feb prior to picking up a cruise (an odyssey for another time).

I booked the hotel nearly a year in advance and chose a pool suite for the privacy.

Coronavirus was beginning to spread outside of China so we were keeping an eye on Government advice and that given by our travel agent who said it was business as usual from both the airlines and hotels. Nothing adverse from our cruise company either so off we went.

We arrived at the hotel mid morning and we greeted by very friendly staff who booked us in and as the room wasn’t quite ready we enjoyed a lovely cold drink while a very pleasant Irish lady who was part of the management team explained all about the hotel.

Thailand is very popular with Chinese tourists and because of the lockdown in China they were missing so occupancy was well down although they reckoned it was at 75%.

Once we were settled in and after a few days we noticed the only large congregation of people was at breakfast. We ate at all 3 restaurants none of which were full at any time. The food was very tasty but was overpriced as was the wine mainly imported from NZ.

Because of the island’s tin mining past the design of the hotel is very industrial with factory type plumbing, metal surfaces with plenty of rivets on show. A shabby chic look with some places more shabby than chic ! Plenty of metal sculptures in the grounds too.

The hotel occupies a large area with lovely gardens which were well manicured. Dotted around were 3 pools with adequate loungers, shade and towels and waiters on hand for drinks etc.

Our pool suite was at the far end of the grounds a 2 minute walk away from a very sparsely populated beach but nonetheless plenty of bars around for drinks and snacks.

The suite had a walk in shower, separate toilet and outdoor bath. The bed was very comfortable, complimentary water replenished every day as was the usual shampoo, conditioner and shower gel.

Our only issue was with the pool which was in shade for most of the day apart from early morning and the odd 30 minutes throughout the day which was so disappointing and defeated the object of booking such a suite in the first place.

It was all down to the design. The building was ground floor and one above. The room above had it’s own balcony but running off the balcony over the shallow end of our pool was a slatted roof feature which shaded us. At the far end of our pool was a very large pitched roof covering which combined with the branches of a tree in the garden and the slatted roof of our upstairs neighbour guaranteed very little sun in our garden. Definitely not worth paying the extra money.

Ending on a positive note, the staff were very warm and friendly and nothing was too much trouble.

We really wanted to love this place. The architecture and art are very different for Thailand. The rooms are large and comfortable. Sadly, where this hotel fails is in the service. The pool bars had five staff hanging around and no one seemed interested in serving anyone. They passed water only once a day - the rest of the time you had to go to the towel station to get your own water. By day three, we stopped tolerating poorly mixed drinks and simply getting the wrong order and sent them back. In a period of 1.5 hours, four drinks were sent back and only two correct. We also ate at the Japanese restaurant. Again, there were about four staff working on our table, but only one that really paid us attention. We ordered two bottles of white wine to go with our dinner - first bottle served warm, so we asked them to start icing the second bottle prior to serving. We ended up having to pour our own wine from the second bottle because the main waitress disappeared, and the other three just stood around. We made use of our one free drink, and could only order from a separate menu for the “welcome” drink. I don’t think there was any alcohol it them at all. We also found that if you liked a particular cocktail served at one bar on the resort, you couldn’t actually order it at another bar on the property. Finally, we considered using the spa. We went to the spa reception and asked if there were any specials. Nope, nada, none at all. We left to decide by the pool what services we might want to experience and low and behold, we are approached by a spa staffer telling us about a discounted offer available today. Hmmm. Where was that 10 minutes ago when we were actually at the spa??? For the price and hype of this hotel, we expected to have a lot better service.

I cannot rave about this hotel more. The staff made it for us. The hotel itself is beautiful and decorated with such an eye for detail, it's truly stunning. However, even with all of this beauty, the hotel is made truly special by the staff who work there. Every single waiter, waitress, receptionist, cleaner, gardener or babysitter we came across was so polite and friendly. Staff went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable and enjoying ourselves. We stayed with our 18 month old daughter and she was adored and given so much attention. We had a really special time here and I would come back like a shot. And, I haven't even begun to talk about how delicious the food was...
Thank you so much for having us. It was perfect.

Stayed for two weeks in April weather was fantastic very hot with a little rain some evenings. Location is fantastic away from the busy tourist hotspots but only a taxi ride away if you want a lively evening. The beach is beautiful with lovely bars and restaurants situated in the sand, we spent most days at the hotel then went over to the beach and had a gin and tonic and watched the most beautiful sunsets every evening. Food at the hotel is the best I’ve ever had at a hotel and we have stayed at lots of resorts. My fussy teenage son ate lots of different foods. Breakfast was amazing. We had the D-buk suite which was a great size. Large walk in wardrobe and large well designed rooms the second bed had a curtain so our son and us had some privacy. We would of liked to have spent time at the swim up bar but jnforyiver 16’s only. I think it would be better to allow mature children or over 14’s the second pool was also over 14’s and we spent lots of time here. The main large pool was also great. Slate, one of your staff members Ian who walks around the pools and waits on your guests is a credit to your company, he really made our stay very enjoyable and made sure we were never thirsty, he also always made a effort with our son who is a West Ham united fan and Ian knew lots about them. Looking forward to visiting again.

Dear Guest, Thank you so much for sharing your experience here at The Slate with the TripAdvisor community. I am very happy to read that you had great stay with us and enjoyed our hospitality. Nai Yang beach is just a 10 meters walk outside of the hotel and it is one of those "out-of-the-beaten-tracks hidden gems". Beautiful, shaded, and plenty of tiny fun bars and restaurants, Nai Yang remains peaceful like most of the northern beaches of Phuket and it is never crowded. I have well noted your comment about allowing children from 14 years old up to our Pulley Pool Bar (swim-up bar) and I will discuss with the team to change that. We do hope to have the pleasure to welcome you back soon, and please feel free to contact me directly. I'll be delighted to assist you with your reservation.

We stayed here for 9 nights in January 2020. The resort is huge and it takes a while to get your bearings. It caters for all travellers.

The three pools are all great. We mainly went to pool 3, the quieter infinity pool where Ian looked after us really well, keeping us hydrated and pampered with cooling cloths and pineapple skewers for refreshment.

We ate at all of the restaurants. Black Ginger is a great experience and has a fabulous ambience. The food in the Japanese restaurant Rivet was probably the best on offer. It was a pity there weren't more guests in the restaurants, for atmosphere. This is probably because the restaurants are fairly expensive by local standards. Maybe a reduction in prices would encourage people to eat in the hotel rather than the other local restaurants. The local restaurants where we ate were all good.

The staff in general were really helpful and friendly, particularly the breakfast crew. Breakfast itself had everything you could want, and their croissants were exceptional.

Everywhere was spotlessly clean and well maintained.

We really enjoyed our stay and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.

So first the good points. This is a lovely quirky property and the design is fab. Although some of the landscaping could use some work and also the maintenance of it. Secondly my kids loved the kids club particularly Pui, so massive thanks to her!

Now the downside. Iv never really encountered a hotel who are worse at communicating with you than the slate. I emailed the hotel regarding some requests prior to our visit and got no response, so tried again a week later and finally got a response from Nawaporn who wasn’t particularly helpful at all, and then even to get replies back to further emails from her took over a week, I then even had to call the hotel to chase! Which is completely not on! Service is key when it comes to looking after your guests!

I requested some things for my toddlers for our room eg kids toilet seat, stool for the sink which were not ready and we then had to ask three different people on arrival.
I had also arranged a transfer with the the hotel as we were getting off a 14 hour journey in the hope that we would have no wait time and would be taken straight to our hotel. When we got to arrivals we couldn’t find a representative from the hotel, when we finally did the car was not ready as they had forgotten the car seats! So we were waiting for another 15 minutes in the heat with a 2 & 4 year old. Completely not on as this service is about 3x the price of a regular taxi from the airport!

The slate if you read this at this moment we are still here in room 2110 and you have a last chance to redeem yourselves. I am an independent travel agent and I know what good service and hospitality is and this is not it!!! Most hotels can’t do enough to show you the best that they have to offer, definitely not the the case here.

We just come back from Thailand (phuket), we stayed at The Slate for 7days and absolutely loved it. The people and services and absolutely wonderful. It more of a tropical hotel so the beach isn't at your door step if you like that, you have to walk out of the hotel to go to the beach. Which we did not mind because the the hotel tropical tree and flowers are beautiful. The food is amazing I didn't have one bad experience with food, they have three restaurants on site so you have a lot of choice even for vegetarians. But the most amazing part are the staff they are amazing they are so friendly even to the rude customer who think they own the world. They recommend so many places to go and see and do they immediately informed us that we may it things cheaper if we went somewhere else rather an where most tourists would go to, but only go there if you like local markets.
They hotel is self is clean they decorated it like contemporary art and you so no white tales and clean lines which is the beauty of the hotel. I loved that they had floor boards and no carpet and tiles it actually made feel clean. House keeping are amazing so if some extra just ask. If have kids I would recommend asking for a ground floor room it would be easier. But if your look for a different kind of hotel with 5 star experience then give The Slate a chance and you want be disappointed.
Have lovely holiday.

Sometimes they include Black Ginger and or The Rivert , Breakfast each day Lots of other good restaurants in the local area .If dinner is provided each day of your stay it will most likely be at the buffet area, lots of great choices but maybe not whast you are looking for.

the beach is very close, two minutes away across a very quiet road. there are plenty of bars/restaurants on the beach too. Very good food and good prices. I don't know about beds on the beach though, I know that the hotel doesn't provide any.

Hi. We stayed in a Pearl Suite in May this year & yes there was a curtained area with drawers/hanging rail. We were also lucky enough to have an outside bath tub.

We stayed in Dbunk room and there was a huge king size plus bed/couch in a separate area of the open plan room... nothing to separate frome the main bedroom area, but I would think irs perfectly acceptable for 2 teenagers to crash on. Hope this helps.

Can’t comment on any of the facilities for children as we went as a couple but the family pool was always busy and looked fun. The Underground Cafe by the pool was nice but I wouldn’t recommend the evening buffet in the Tin Mine restaurant was expensive. I do however recommend the Black Ginger restaurant, the prices where surprisingly very good. Even if just go the once. There are eating places on the beach at the back of the hotel inexpensive. There’s also an eating place outside the front of hotel was very good, we ate there several times, prices here are inexpensive including drinks with it without alcohol. The lady who manages the place was nice & friendly. The Slate is a 5 star hotel and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and have no qualms returning if we visited Phuket again. Enjoy your stay.
