50 shades of romance in Phuket

Inspired by “Fifty Shades of Gray,” Phuket’s designer resort, The Slate, is spicing up couples retreats with an exclusive romantic experience.

With everything covered—from airport transfers to arrival flowers and champagne, a candlelight floral bath, gourmet dinners, massages and surprise treats along the way—this three-day, two-night package will set hearts on fire.

The experience can be tailored to suit each guest’s needs, but will always start with a ride from the airport by private transfer, followed by a bottle of champagne upon arrival in a Pearl Shell Suite. Each suite comes equipped with an oversize bathtub, en-suite massage beds and round-the-clock butler service, allowing guests to completely unwind.


Experience intimacy in the Coqoon Spa.

Days at The Slate can be spent at relaxing at its adult-only pools, enjoying strolls on a white sand beach or, for those looking to have a go at shooting Cupid’s arrow, taking a private archery class for two.

The hotel also features the award-winning Coqoon Spa with a cozy nest-shaped couples’ treatment room.

A special bespoke night kit with chocolate cream scrub is also being prepared in collaboration with a silk nightwear partner.

The package is $1,887 in Singapore dollars and also includes daily breakfast,d inner for two at Black Ginger, The Slate’s authentic Thai restaurant, or Rivet, a sophisticated Japanese restaurant.

Rates are for the total package based on two guests. The offer may not be combined with any other special promotion. Rates are inclusive of VAT, service charge and local taxes, and the package is valid through Feb. 28, 2019.

Reservations must be cancelled or modified 14 days prior to arrival to avoid full-stay fee. All reservations must be guaranteed with a valid credit card and the offer is subject to availability.
