The Slate Phuket launches holistic retreats with KRU Precision Wellness
February 24, 2021

The Slate - an art-inspired beachfront retreat in Phuket - has launched KRU Precision Wellness, a new onsite facility that specialises in personalised preventative healthcare and innovative wellness programmes.

This independent private health centre, situated in a pristine corner of Phuket's sunset coast, just 10 minutes’ drive from the airport, promises a holistic approach to wellness, with an extensive range of scientific services that include the KRU Diagnose Program, which comprises a full check-up and screening session, vitamin services such as the KRU Signature VitaDrip, weight loss programmes, liver detox cleansing and more.

The aim is to help people who are struggling to cope with high levels of stress, lack of sleep, poor diet, age-related afflictions and other factors that not only impact mental and emotional health, but can also have a negative effect on our physical wellbeing. At times like these, when issues such as global instability, financial insecurity and restricted movement are affecting millions of people, the services provided by KRU Precision Wellness are more relevant than ever. Guests can now combine their stay at The Slate with a personal appointment at this innovative centre, to create a comprehensive wellness experience.

Throughout their time at this breath-taking Bill Bensley-designed resort, a sense of serenity can be achieved in the extraordinary surroundings of the Coqoon Spa, an organic sanctuary that appears to grow out of the lush, landscaped gardens. With a choice of six stunning treatment suites and the gravity-defying Tree Nest, guests can choose from a menu of Asian-inspired therapies such as massages, exfoliations, body wraps and facials, or create a bespoke spa package.

To reach a zen state of mind, The Slate’s yoga, Pilates, tai chi and body stretching classes blend posture and breathing exercises to help the practitioner reach total relaxation, while muay Thai sessions offer an invigorating workout and an insight into authentic Thai culture. Adrenaline-fueled workouts can also be enjoyed with a circuit training programme, which is designed to strengthen core muscles.

The Slate also offers nutritious cuisine at a choice of restaurants, including Black Ginger, which is recommended by the Michelin Guide.
