Golf Asia (Malaysia) - - CONTENTS -

An hour’s wait at Changi Air­port, be in the air for about two hours, clear air­port cus­toms in 30 min­utes and trav­ellers can reach Phuket in just over three and a half hours. One of the top des­ti­na­tions to go for a quick week­end get­away, there are more than ten di­rect flights to Phuket daily from Sin­ga­pore. Just a five-minute drive from the is­land’s re­cently re­mod­elled air­port, The Slate is the per­fect choice for a has­sle-free trip that is a world away from the hus­tle and bus­tle of daily life.

The Slate was orig­i­nally de­signed by in­ter­na­tion­ally-ac­claimed ar­chi­tect Bill Bens­ley, the ho­tel is firmly rooted in Phuket’s past where the de­sign and unique ex­pe­ri­ences re­flect and hon­our the is­land’s his­tory, cus­toms, her­itage and cui­sine. Guests who stay at The Slate can fully im­merse and ex­pe­ri­ence all lo­cal el­e­ments and of­fer­ings – be it within the con­fines of the prop­erty or through the sights around.

For an af­ter­noon of re­ju­ve­na­tion, a visit to The Slate’s Co­qoon spa is a must. Set in a trop­i­cal gar­den with eight dou­ble pri­vate treat­ment rooms, the des­ti­na­tion spa is

home to a se­ries of re­lax­ing and re­ju­ve­nat­ing ex­pe­ri­ences. Go through a be­spoke spa pro­gramme that in­cor­po­rates tra­di­tional Thai heal­ing and holis­tic well­ness. For those look­ing to keep fit dur­ing their stay, The Slate of­fers a wide va­ri­ety of classes for ev­ery en­ergy level, in­clud­ing ten­nis, kick­box­ing, Muay Thai, and Pi­lates – fit­ness on the hour at ev­ery hour.

With dis­tinct din­ing con­cepts at The Slate, guests can en­counter a dif­fer­ent din­ing ex­pe­ri­ence at ev­ery lunch and din­ner dur­ing their week­end stay. They can look for­ward to a range of mouth wa­ter­ing jour­neys from savour­ing the true tastes of Phuket at Black Ginger to ex­quis­ite cuts at al­fresco Tin Mine. For rare whiskies and craft cock­tails, guests can un­wind at Tongkah Tin Syn­di­cate while ex­plor­ing the col­lectibles from the Na-Ranong fam­ily mines.

Just across the road from the tran­quil shores of Nai Yang Beach, The Slate of­fers end­less ac­tiv­i­ties on land and at sea for those look­ing to stretch their legs for some ad­ven­ture. Apart from kayak­ing and pad­dle board­ing, guests can spend the day out on the wa­ter. For an ex­pe­ri­ence to in­ter­act with the abun­dant marine wildlife in­hab­it­ing the An­daman Sea, div­ing, snorkelling and yacht­ing are op­tions to choose from. Al­ter­na­tively, for those in­ter­ested in im­mers­ing into the lo­cal cul­ture, the ho­tel of­fers day trips to ei­ther jour­ney through nine spec­tac­u­lar tem­ples or an ex­plo­ration of the Naka week­end mar­ket. With a mix of re­lax­ation, gourmet ex­pe­ri­ences, and ad­ven­ture all catered for, this makes The Slate the per­fect get­away des­ti­na­tion for the trav­eller who needs a fast op­tion to es­cape from bustling city life.
