Dogs welcome - and their well-behaved owners

The Slate is one of my favourite addresses - on beach at sleepy Naiyang on Phuket, it is inspired by Phuket’s tin mining past. 

The luxury resort blends Bill Bensley’s whimsical design with industrial chic elements to create a serious ambience. 

A collection of delightful suites and villas, including pool villas and the spectacular Bensley Suite, surround serene pools and gardens, while Coqoon Spa offers a range of relaxing treatment. 

Dining options include much-awarded authentic Thai cuisine at Black Ginger and international tastes at Rivet. 

A hotel review will follow shortly but the hot news from The Slate is that dogs are now welcome to enjoy their beach holiday, along with well-behaved humans.

The Slate’s new dog-friendly policy means that up to two pooches can experience the life of luxury in a one-bedroom pool villa or two-bedroom family and pool villas - as long as they are accompanied by a well-behaved owner. 

During their stay, pampered pups will be able to unwind in their beautiful villa, sleep in their own comfortable dog bed, which will be provided by The Slate, and even cool off in their private pool! 
Food and water bowls will be set up in the room, daily doggie treats will be provided at turndown, and The Slate will give every canine guest a signature badge for their leash – the ultimate fashion accessory for the discerning dog. 

A series of “Furry Services” will also be offered at an extra charge, including a nutritious and delicious gourmet menu, plus dog walking and sitting services for travellers seeking some human time. For complete peace-of-mind, veterinary services will be available on call. 

To ensure the comfort of all other guests, The Slate has created some house rules for its canine clientele. All dogs must be free from fleas or ticks, their vaccinations must be up-to-date, and they must be kept on a leash when not in the villa. 

Poop bags will be provided to owners who must take care of their pets’ mess, and while The Slate loves all tail-waggers to be happy and playful, they must also be relatively quiet and under control.

“At The Slate, we understand that for many people, their dogs are an important part of their family. We want to make it easier for every guest to travel and stay in style with their pooches. Our pool villas will let pets unwind and live the life of luxury – swimming in their private pool, dining from a gourmet menu and even wearing The Slate’s dog tag with pride! We can’t wait to welcome our four-legged friends to Phuket this summer,” said the hotel’s co-founder and owner, Krystal Prakaikaew Na-Ranong.
Under The Slate’s dog-friendly policy, up to two dogs are permitted per villa, with a maximum weight of 7.5kg each. A fee of THB 1,500 per dog per night is applicable. For information visit
