“Re-interpreting heritage through dazzling design”

As a show of faith in his native island, the owner of the former Indigo Pearl reinvested in the hotel, which he transformed into the visually stunning The Slate that we know today. The resort's tin mine design theme – a nod to the island's industrial past – has been reinterpreted by the creative powerhouse duo of Bill Bensley and John Underwood. Dramatic lighting casts a theatrical hue over cast iron furnishings and mesmeric colored glass, while brushed concrete and railway sleepers add a raw edge to the industrial glam. The Nest of Coqoon Spa has to be seen (and experienced) to be believed.

Best time to visit : December to May

"Hokkein noodles here are simply delicious. Yellow egg noodles are stir-fried with leafy green vegetables in soy sauce, usually with pork, chicken, seafood or even combination of all above! You also have the option of adding an egg which I always did. The chicken satay was surprisingly tasty – tender and with a touch of herbal smell. Recommended!”
