If it’s name hasn’t given it away already, Foto Hotel is all about photography; from the famous photography quotes sprawled throughout, to the black and white prints adorning the walls. The monochrome palette is not confined to the photographs either; this design hotel has a strict black and white theme throughout, making for a very stylish finish.
Perched atop a hill overlooking the sea, you can expect some jaw-dropping sea views, while the grassy lounging areas, packed with giant cushions, are begging for ‘accidental’ naps. There is even a free shuttle bus to and from the beach, so sun-soaked sands are only a stone’s throw away.
Please note that this hotel is not suited to children under six.
Tiffin Mama restaurant serves delicious Thai and International dishes throughout the day, or sip on handcrafted cocktails at the Great Shot Bar. You don’t need to miss out on your lie in either, with a breakfast buffet that stays open until lunch time. Breakfast is included in most room rates (see detail below).
Rooms are modern and minimalist, with monochrome décor and the odd photograph dotted here and there. If you’re lucky, you may be able to bag yourself a balcony. It is worth noting that this hotel is not suited to children under six.
Beach-seekers can get their fix of powdery shores, with Kata Beach a 15-minute walk away (or a quick hotel shuttle bus) and Patong Beach a 15-minute drive. Phuket Old Town is about a 30-minute drive away and is well worth a visit.
All that sunbathing can be sweltering, so cool off in the hotel’s refreshing infinity pool. If you’re in the mood for a bit of exercise, head to the gym, and be sure to treat yourself to a well-deserved massage or beauty treatment in the Bokeh spa afterwards. Scooters are also available for hire.
