We got married at this beautiful hotel and it could not have been more beautiful. The staff went above and beyond for us, not only on the wedding day, for the duration of our stay. We dealt with Golfie when planning our special day and she was absolutely amazing! Her attention to detail and the massive effort she put into...

We really enjoyed our time here at Foto Hotel! There were a few hiccups that almost kept me from writing a review, but overall it was good. My only compliant is, they don't offer receipts when you pay in cash, and we had a HUGE mix up that really upset me. And we didn't have proof so I double paid....

There were a few bad comments and many good comments of Tripadvisor reviews so we decided to give it a try. The hotel was awesome and as beautiful in real life as in the pictures. The free minibar...

Yeah!!! - Large tiled shower - loved it. Easily fits 6 to 8 people (thought probably not really a requirement). - Easy/remote control of the lights and...

The hotel takes its name from the photographic theme which runs through the hotel. This comes through the cool use of black and white as the underlying colors of the interior design, as well as old cameras used for display, old Phuket scene photos hanging on the walls and even down to the cocktails with photographic inspired names. It works...
