To start, our trip was booked in 2019 before covid hit. We were so upset that we wouldn't be able to still take our dream honeymoon to Phuket and to the Slate. We finally were able to take out trip in June 2022. I can say that the whole time between when we booked our trip, covid hit, then 2022, every time I emailed The Slate about a question or concern, someone immediately would contact me back. The communication and help that The Slate staff provided me and my husband was impeccable. And that does not even compare to our trip. From start to finish our time at The Slate was breath taking. Every part of this resort, from the rooms, to the pools, to the food, to even the bathrooms (my husband is a plumber), is superb. I cannot say enough good things about this resort. All of the staff, literally every person we came in contact with was warm and welcoming. Almost everyone remembered our names or the drinks that we liked. They would always ask about our day, or if we needed anything. We actually did not even leave the resort the first few days and the last two days (we were in Phuket a total of 13 days, all spent staying at The Slate) because everything was so nice. The beach was beautiful. The massage was fantastic. BREAKFAST WAS SOOOO GOOD. Thank you again for making our honeymoon and at the time 2 year anniversary beyond anything we could have imagined. Thank you!

Room tip: We had the pool villa. AMAZING. SO worth it!

Dear Tifa01,

Thank you for your fabulous review. It is a real joy to read the impressions of your stay, and that the team was able to exceed the high expectations your naturally accumulated over the two years Covid-related waiting period. Your kind comments have been shared with the all concerned, and especially with my colleagues from the Reservation Department, who remained at everyone's disposal during this uncertain time.

We pride ourselves with one of the best breakfast spreads on the islands. Our bakery team, led by talented Pastry Chef Khun Keaittisak, freshly bakes all the Danish, savories, croissants, and breads on a daily basis. Surely they will be excited to learn of your appreciation, and the same applies for the other 50+ team members of the Culinary Team.

We are looking forward to welcoming you back for your third anniversary, or whenever your travel plans lead you back to Phuket. As mentioned to you earlier, please do not hesitate to contact me directly for any possible assistance with your arrangements.

Kind regards,

Manuel Mandaglio

The Slate

The Slate - high expectations, exceeded!
We have stayed at Nai Yang Beach several times over the past ten years, it’s a not only its own unique little community, it’s a also great base for travelling in Thailand and other parts of Asia. This is the first time we have stayed at The Slate, having visited there a few times for its superb Black Ginger restaurant, a must do experience. We were excited to book for a week at The Slate, we had very high hopes and it really delivered. Firstly, the decor of the public spaces and the rooms are brilliant although hard to describe adequately. It’s quite majestic in scale, soaring ceilings, huge artworks, dramatic feature lighting. It really is a must-see. We stayed in a pool suite, the most basic of the pool rooms, and it was superb, those high ceilings and decor again, with a perfect size terrace garden for the 2 of us. The spa area is divine. The garden settings and all three public pools are brilliant, and the hospitality, whether at one of the happy hours, pools, breakfast rooms, or Rebar, or back at Black Ginger, top line. A bonus is that you can walk from the back of the hotel directly out into central Nai Yang and onto the beach. A bunch of great eating options that never detracted from the wonderful experience we had at The Slate. Truly the best of both worlds.

Room tip: The private pool rooms are worth it.

Dear Janet and Steve,

Thank you for this wonderfully written feedback. Knowing that your stay exceeded your high expectations is one of the greatest compliments to receive. We are thrilled that you had such an impeccable experience, and your kind comments pertaining the high service level has been shared with all my colleagues.

Being quite new to Nai Yang myself, I must admit the charming little beach town has indeed a lot to offer in terms of nature, biodiversity, and even a hint of nightlife. Since we are adjacent to Sirinat National Park, various exotic birds and animals can also be found on our 25-hectare resort grounds.

Hopefully we may welcome you back in the not too distant future. Please feel free to contact me directly if I can be of any help with your arrangements.

All the best,

Manuel Mandaglio

You do not stay at The Slate you experience it. From the unique styling of every restaurant, bar and room, to the picturesque grounds, every twist and turn in this resort provides another visual treat. We have been visiting since 2015 every year and the main reason for our return is the amazing staff and their real and genuine desire to provide every guest with a wonderful stay. A special mention to the fantastic Apple who went above and beyond to ensure that once again as returning guests we still received the same level of attention and Ian at pool 3 who once again made sure that we along with every other guest has the best level of service at the poolside. From the check-in to our departure, the level of service and help we received was faultless. If you want the most relaxed and carefree break then definitely visit The Slate. The style of the bars and restaurants are definitely unique and need to be seen to be believed. This is one impressive resort that stands apart from the regular corporate hotels and one that will be visited for years to come

Dear Robert,

Thank you for your annual return visit, and it was a great pleasure to have you once again as our guest. We are thrilled to read of your satisfaction, and your kind feedback is motivating to all of us. Khun Apple and Khun Ian are some leading examples of the service we strive to provide, and surely they will be excited to learn of your appreciation.

While Black Ginger obviously enjoys the highest reputation among our uniquely designed restaurant & bars, I would like to invite all readers to experience fabulous Rebar, Rivet and Tin Mine Syndicate, preferably exactly in that order.

Rebar is the perfect place for a sundowner, followed by premium cuts at Rivet, and an after-dinner cocktail at Tongkah Tin Syndicate. For those who wonder, Tongkah was the original name for Phuket, and the bar displays the Owning Family's fascinating collection of tin mining memorabilia on its walls and ceilings.

We are already looking forward to hosting your stay once again coming year. Please feel free to contact me directly for any possible assistance with your arrangements.

Kind regards,

Manuel Mandaglio

Just returned from an awesome week at The Slate. The staff are incredible, the Pearl Suite was a real treat and our meal at the Black Ginger restaurant was superb. The design of the resort is quite something. To top it all our flight home was delayed overnight and we were accomodated without any hesitation, given a 4.30am transfer to the airport and a beautiful breakfast box to send us on our way. Thank you all ...see you next year. Kop Khun Ka

Tries to be unique (mining industry theme), but fails to impress at a functional level.

Hits
(1) large spacious grounds and plants aplenty
(2) our room was spacious (D-Buk family suite)
(3) location is very near the international airport

Misses
(1) does not have private beach (but has access to public beach)
(2) lack of functionality
- bath towels squeezed into a cloth bag; it was an effort taking it out from the bag, imagine putting it in!)
- toilet roll holder in the form of a large screw, but couldn't be screwed in place securely
- lack of wall hangers for clothes and towels
- liquid bath and shampoo gel containers could probably be in pump bottles for less wastage and better hygiene

(3) impractical design (or maybe I just cannot appreciate it)
- knobs that are made of 'rusty' screws (they certainly look rusty but am not sure if I should wash my hands every time after touching them)
- full scale mirror right in front (i.e. 20 cm from your knees when seated on the toilet bowl), or mirror on the ceiling (yes, ceiling) of the shower cubicle.

Dear Quito2003,

Thank you for being our guest, and for the time you have taken to share your constructive comments. While we are glad to read that you were pleased with various aspects of your stay, we have also taken well note of the areas which leave room for improvement. Thank you for bringing this to our attention, and please accept my sincerest apologies for the inconveniences caused.

We do have indeed a challenge with the toilet roll holders, and are currently looking at alternatives, however without changing the particular design. As for the missing options to hang ones cloths, the separate dressing room does actually provide ample space, and we are happy to provide additional hangers if required. Last but not least, thank you for highlighting the missing hooks for the bath towels, and we are pleased to inform you, that we are on process to increase from 2 to 4 hooks for all Family Suite rooms.

We sincerely hope we may receive an opportunity to host your stay once again. Please do contact me directly for any possible help with your arrangements, I will be happy to assist.

Kind regards,

Manuel Mandaglio
