What’s your favourite colour? As children, this is one of the first questions we ask. But do you ever wonder why we prefer one shade to another? According to psychologists, different colours can have a dramatic effect on our moods, feelings and emotions.
The Slate, the whimsical, art-inspired resort on Phuket’s secluded northwest shore, understand that different colour combinations can stimulate the senses. It is no coincidence each of the resort’s newly refurbished Pearl Shell Suites has its own distinct palette, as Bill Bensley, the visionary architect and artist, harnessed the power of colour in his design. Let’s take a closer look…
The Slate’s one and two bedroom spectacular Pearl Shell Suites are all filled with bold floral patterns, accented with wood, stone and metal to exude an atmosphere of organic elegance. These sublime refreshed sanctuaries are adorned with plush furnishings and original artworks, while also showcasing breath-taking views of verdant trees and gardens, blurring the boundaries between indoors and outside. But if you want to customise your stay to suit your personality or preference, check out the creative colour schemes:
The LIME GREEN One Bedroom Pearl Shell Suite (132m²) is perfectly suited to guests who desire a SERENE retreat – a safe and spiritual escape from their daily lives. While green is a soothing colour commonly associated with nature and healing, this vibrant shade is blended with yellow, which embodies warmth and happiness. The result is an ambience of utter bliss!
PINK & TURQUOISE may not sound like natural bedfellows, but they work together harmoniously in our One Bedroom Pearl Shell Suite! Pink is the colour of sweetness and sincerity, while turquoise combines the freshness and vitality of green with the trust and loyalty of blue. What could be better for couples planning a ROMANTIC getaway in paradise?
BLACK & WHITE is the ultimate contrast. But opposites attract, and guests staying in one of the One Bedroom Pearl Shell Suite will find the perfect symphony of security, strength and formality, as indicated by black, and the clean, honest simplicity signified by white. This monochrome palette sets the scene for guests seeking a stylish and SOPHISTICATED sojourn.
BLUE & WHITE combine to create an aura of complete calmness – exactly what we all need in these times of elevated tension. Adorning our 232m² Two Bedroom Duplex Pearl Shell Suites, blue’s tranquility and trustworthiness is the ideal partner for the purity and innocence of white. This makes it a great option for guests who want to free their mind and get INSPIRED.
Colour psychology is just one of the ways that The Slate delivers a multi-sensory experience. As a member of the Design Hotels Collection, every aspect of the resort is intended to be uplifting and invigorating, from the visual impact of our original artworks and installations, which can be explored in a QR code-enabled ‘Art Journey’, to the taste of authentic southern Thai cuisine at Black Ginger, the Michelin-recommended restaurant, the touch of traditional wellness at Coqoon Spa, the fragrances of the new “Scent Corner”, which showcases a customised selection of organic essential oils, and even the sound of the ocean waves lapping on the sandy shore. The Slate is truly a sanctuary for the senses!
“At The Slate, we have always strived to stimulate the mind, body and soul. Colour permeates every aspect of our lives, but all too often we take it for granted and overlook the effect different colours have on our emotions. Our Pearl Shell Suites are all individually designed to stir the senses and suit our guests’ unique moods. If you’re seeking a haven of tranquility, a romantic retreat, an inspiring escape or a chic, sophisticated sojourn, we can create your ultimate vacation,” said the hotel’s co-founder and owner, Krystal Prakaikaew Na-Ranong (or “Khun Moo” as she is known to her friends).
