      Great family suite, hotel facilities and service! However we experienced a lot of mosquitos at the breakfast area ( Tin Mine restaurant) where four of my family of six got badly bitten everyday including myself! The floor in the family suite and the staircase was very slippery to walk on and my eldest daughter (15 year old) fell from the stair one day We enjoyed ourselves still! Heuer family, from Norway

We are thrilled to know that you've considered our resort as one of the best hotels, and your favourite hotel in Phuket that is right next to the airport. Many people love watching sunsets at Nai Yang Beach. Glad you enjoyed the beautiful sky colors. If you are traveling to our area again soon, call us if there is anything we can help you with.

      Good for couples looking to be pampered on a quiet short holiday, location not good for anything other than airport - over 1hr to Patong or more busy beaches by taxi. Hotel is very expensive for Thailand, but if you want some stylish luxuary and don't want to spend any time outside of the complex - it's great.

      Pro: super quiet location, near nice beach. Great breakfast buffet. Very close to airport, so you don’t have to deal with traffic. Far from Party scene. Luxury hotel with good off season deals There is a diving center there if you like. The fitness center is great. Spa on site as well but I didn’t use it Cons: not a lot of solo travelers, this is not a hostel, but I went there knowing that! I needed to disconnect. 1h drive from the pier, which was long after a day trip snorkeling. Pool I went to was always super warm. But it s Thailand and it s super hot!

      Beautiful room and great breakfast”

      We stayed in the slate for only 1 night, just before leaving Phuket to go back home, as it is 8 min drive to the airport. Important to mention that it is far away from center, you will find few modest restaurants close to the hotel but no more than that. The room was a great one, spacious and smelled wonderful and the bed was extremely comfortable. The breakfast was really great, amazing selection of food and good quality as well. Three things I personally didn’t like; 1. It is a huge hotel, really really big they took us to our room using tuk tuk and it really takes time to walk to each of the pools or the lobby. 2. Too fancy to my taste, “grandiosity” is the right word and it was quite boring for us (young couple) as the pools were quiet, no music and no good vibes. Only quiet people sitting there doing nothing (again we were there for only one day). 3. Room service took too much time, expensive and really small proportion!

      Pleasant stay with two young kids”

      We have two young kids (age 4 and under) and stayed in a Family Suite, which was spacious and comfortable. Kids' club was rather small but kept my two kids happy and occupied. There are also some scheduled activities for the kids (eg cookie decoration, pizza making). Thai restaurant The Black Ginger served very good food, and was also attentive towards the kids' needs. The only downside is that the beach is not part of the hotel property, hence not very clean. But overall a pleasant stay.

      First class resort with excellent facilities ”

      We really enjoyed our stay at the slate. Its definitely a place that can accommodate both families and couples with its specific designated areas. But as a family we never felt excluded from anything. During the trip our daughter turned 3 and Kiara the concierge did a wonderful job of organising an entertainer and making our daughters day really special. So the hotel will forever remain in our memory. The beach and area outside the hotel was also a very pleasant surprise. Being a Thai resident for many years we prefer to be in quieter beach areas and this place still has that feel to it.

Private beach, river-heart suited restaurant and tasty food, great choice for Couples, Friends, Families. 40 mins away by taxi to Phuket town centre.

Our rooms types are allocated on different floors, if you would like upper floor room types it is best to book our Pearl bed suite or 1 and 2 bed room Pearl Shell Suite which are located on higher floors. As for the D buk suite we have very limited units on the second floor, guest can request this in advance and we do our best to keep the room if you. We hope you will decide to stay with us again in the future. Warmest regards, The Slate Management Team.

      Loved the Resort was the last booking made on how Phuket road trip so only stayed one night but so wished it was more. Stayed in a Pearl Suite that excellent - tried to cram so much into one day - including swimming in all 3 pools and two of the bar/restaurants but could not cover the rest. Not cheap for sure but better value if stay 3 or more days - for sure what we will have to do next time.

      I like the disign of the hotel, also its very big and lot of spaces for relax, good restaurant , good pool and very nice beach, it's not privet beach but just a minute of walk, lot of restaurant at the beach, you can enjoy a Singha beer with 60 bhat. There is a very good Thai restaurant black ginger but don't forget to make a reservation. If I come to Phuket may I will stay here again. Only little disappointed with the taste of Indian food, the taste was quite far from Indian food, breakfast was great.

      Wonderful Family Vacation”

      We just enjoyed a great 6 day stay at Slate with my two young children. The breakfast buffet is very yummy and the facilities is both unique and offers many activities for our family to enjoy. We had a family suite which met our needs perfectly. The hotel is was not overrun with large tour groups (a plus during Chinese New Year). The staff went out of their way to meet our needs -- recognizing us by name after the first day. The concierge was very helpful in identifying the right tours for our family. And we did take advantage of a few activities offered by the Slate center -- paddleboard, bikes and waterball. We really enjoyed that Nai Yang beach was right out side our back entrance which is a not overly developed beach area with outdoor restaurants and street vendors. Slate is a 45 minutes taxi ride to Patong and Old Phuket so it is definitely not for those looking for active night activities. This was fine for our family situation -- there are many places to grab casual drinks at the hotel. Overall cannot recommend Slate more and expect to be back again.

We were greeted by our own pretty butler named Cherry and everything is explained and ready upon arrival, although it was raining seasons, the didn't spoil our vacation in this resort, we loved the beautiful resort with tropical oasis, several restaurants to chose and they are all delicious for breakfast and dinner. Staff are all helpful and very friendly. Bed is incredibly cozy. Nothing to complain about if you like design resort nature and green. Every details paid, situated only about 10 minutes from the airport. Pool Villa and resort look nicer in real than in photos. We loved it very much! all the other guest are civilized and at least with minimum respect and standard. Super fast Wi-Fi everywhere in the resort. SPA is overpriced -this can be adjusted.
