The Slate has been through a couple of different names and incarnations since it first opened (we remember visiting when it was called the Indigo Pearl), but this design resort is the talk of the island.

The pool butlers there had everything covered, from complimentary cold fruit, to sunscreen when we needed it most.

across the rest of the resort, there was still an element of clasp-handed Thai hospitality here.
