Think traditional Thai huts injected with a theme of urban industrial architecture; The Slate offers a contemporary take on Thailand's popular beach retreat resorts.
Situated on Nat Yang Beach, adjacent to Sirinath National Park, The Slate is a beach resort inspired by Phuket's tin mining past. A combination of rugged industrial textures and tones expressed in traditional Thai patterns, and a modernity which has a focus on the colour indigo.
Ironically enough, the part of Phuket that until now has been least developed is the area close to the airport. Mai Yang Beach is only ten minutes from Phuket International Airport, but because it's situated next to Sirinath National Park, it's one of the quietest areas on the island. However, the hustle and bustle of places like Patong are only 30 minutes away.
There are six categories of rooms, including self-standing villas, which incorporate the design work of Bill Bensley. Through clever use of rugged texture and uncompromising modernity, Bensley creates a very unusual aesthetic which evokes Phuket's origins as a tin mining island.
Offering a plethora of dining experiences, each restaurant places emphasis on curating original recipes, incorporating the freshest organic produce that is grown in the surrounding land.
The range of bars on the resort cater for everyone needs; with the underground cafe serving freshly-squeezed fruit juices, and a bar and grill on the beach serving the most delicious cocktails to sip whilst watching the sun comes down.
Gaze over the Andaman Sea whilst you are encompassed by the Sirinat National Park; a unique opportunity to fully immerse yourself and feel at one with nature.
