    Naturally, obtaining such position didnt come without a bit of daring and today, this bravery continues. After all,what could be a more courageous move for such a renowned hotel than changing its name? So without furtherado, Indigo Pearl becomes a thing of the past, the future belongs to The Slate.

    Why the change? What does it mean to the guests and why do it now? To nd answer to this and other questions,we spoke to Krystal Prakaikaew, daughter of The Slates owner Wichit Na-Ranong and the driving force behindthe brands evolution.

    It is a process which we started quite some time ago, not

    something that is happening overnight, explainsPrakaikaew,we felt that the travel industry has changed alot from when we created Indigo Pearl about a decade ago.

    The behavior of our clientele has evolved to a new

    dimension. Given all these facts, we decided that it was

    time for us to evolve the brand to the next level.

    Evolution is the key word here. Working with such a well-established brand, the team behind the new concept hadto trod carefully, making sure to preserve the qualitiesthat made Indigo Pearl the famed resort that it hasbecame over the years. Thats why any visitor whoenjoyed a stay at the Indigo Pearl, will feel at home at theSlate. The resorts DNA has not been altered and itsIndustrial-chic design and a link with tin mining heritageof Phuket are still very much part of the concept. But thatdoesnt mean that all that was altered is the name. Quitethe opposite, the changes were made to whats afundamental part of any resorts success the guestexperience.

    The Slate, a Phuket Pearl Resort is a journey into theislands true soul, says Prakaikaew. The guest journey hasbeen designed for travellers who want to stay away from

    the traditional Phuket holiday formula and want to experience Phuket from a different angle, she adds. This angleincorporates both the islands past and its future, resulting, in Prakaikaews own words in an avant-gardeexpression of Phuket heritage, its rich culture and traditions brought to life with bold design and fearless

    imagination.
