This hotel might be perfect if you are going on honeymoon and like the privacy the hotel provides. The rooms are indeed very stylish, the bathroom with a huge shower is great and the bed is soo big and comfortable! But, here are the downsides: if you are unlucky like us and get a room far from the reception, you... More

I've been trying to figure out how I was going to write this review because I am not one who ever gives a resort a terrible rating. I am one of those people who look at pictures of stains, dead flies, dirty sheets, etc that people take and laugh. How bad could it really be? Well it was horrific! Confirming... More

We have just returned to Sydney after spending 17 wonderful nights at the Foto Hotel. This is not the normal Thai hotel/resort. It is a modern complex with a lot of thought going into the design even down to the décor in the rooms. Photographic opportunities are everywhere with the views from the pool area just amazing. Management have obviously... More

I am in love with this hotel and the staff. I guess it may have helped that I have a thai partner and I can understand a bit of the language.... More

The hotel itself was great. The view was great as advertised. Small touches like free snacks, drinks, etc in the rooms and in the hotel's public places went some way towards making our stay there feel slightly extra special. The brains behind the hotel also clearly put some effort towards trying to make Foto hotel different from other resorts in... More

My husband and I had waited over a year to be able to escape the daily grind and get away for a relaxing holiday. We chose Phuket, Thailand due to the good deals available from Australia and impressions from many that it was "much better than Bali." We had never been to either country so thought it looked like an... More
