The Slate, a 10-hectare beachfront resort on Phuket’s secluded north-west coast, has rolled out two business events packages, as it predicts pent-up demand for face-to-face corporate functions.
Under the Meet Again @ The Slate package, businesses will benefit from the use of larger areas for smaller groups and one-way systems to ensure social distancing.
Half-day and full-day meeting packages are available, including private roundtrip airport transfers, fully-equipped function room rental, priority check-in, a dedicated hospitality desk, a 30-minute cocktail reception upon arrival, daily breakfast, coffee breaks, a conference lunch, late check-out, a one-hour outdoor team activity and a group photo, which will be framed and presented to each guest as a turndown gift.
To boost the group’s wellbeing, a choice of yoga and meditation breaks will be offered, guests will be able to plant herbs in the resort’s organic garden, and every attendee will enjoy 20 per cent discount at the hotel’s Coqoon Spa and KRU Precision Wellness.
Priced at 1,600 baht (US$49) per person for a half-day meeting package 1,800 baht for a full-day package, this offer is valid for bookings made April 30, 2022, and events must be staged by October 31, 2022, for groups of 30 to 50 guests. One VIP will also be treated to a complimentary upgrade to a Private Pool Suite.
Alternatively, the Healthy Meeting @ The Slate package is ideal for corporate away days, company conferences and teambuilding sessions. The 4D3N package includes accommodation (starting from a Pearl Bed Suite), daily breakfast with fresh juice, smoothies and nutrient-packed dishes, two full-day meeting packages with wholesome morning and afternoon breaks, a specially-prepared conference lunch with options for vegans and vegetarians, and a gala dinner.
To enhance physical and mental wellbeing, The Slate will also provide 20-minute stretchercise and sunset rituals, along with mindfulness moments at KRU Precision Wellness, and the meeting room will even include fitness elements.
Priced at 16,888 baht (single) and 11,888 baht (double), this package is valid until October 31, 2022, for groups of 20 to 50 people.
Meeting planners can choose from a selection of venues, including the pillar-free 500-pax Tongkah Hall, the Jomon Pavilion with its vast windows, elevated ceilings and skylights, two intimate suites, and the Coliseum Garden, good for alfresco receptions and cocktail evenings under the stars.
In line with the hotel’s advanced biosecurity measures, all attendees will be subject to temperature checks, advanced sanitation procedures and personal protective equipment (PPE), and all facilities will undergo intensive deep cleaning.
