Luxury hotel away from town
rooftop, design, comfort
Foto Hotel certainly has created a distinct brand, which is clear throughout the entire hotel. Luxury meets whimsical. Hits the mark for a boutique hotel. While the hotel itself is extremely comfortable, with great rooftop views, a fantastic rooftop pool and lounge area, good restaurant... It misses the mark on location. Foto Hotel is secluded at the top of a hill, on an unmarked road. Great for those who ideally want to just stay at the hotel -- i.e. take advantage of the pool for kids. However, to get into town is rather expensive if you do not have your own transportation. Though, the hotel does offer a shuttle to Kuta Beach during set times -- which are not very convenient. Otherwise, you must hire a car directly from the hotel at set hotel prices, or the taxi stand across the way, which also offers little negotiation and high prices. Rarely, if ever, do songtaews, tuk tuks or taxis drive by the road that the hotel is on. So be prepared to spend plenty of money solely on transportation when staying at this hotel. Overall, the staff were friendly and helpful, food at the hotel was pretty good, and the vibe they've created may be the sole reason to stay there at all.

Infinity pool, views, breakfast
Amazing! We did not want to leave! We stayed in Deluxe Ocean View room-highly recommend! Perfect for couples who want a luxury getaway. Loved waking up to views of kata beach. Big windows and king size bed! Nice and quiet and no mosquitoes. Breakfast buffet was simple and nice. Egg menue was great. We looked forward to breakfast every morning and rushed home everynight to cool down in the very clean infinity pool which is open till 11pm but if are quite they'll let you stay longer. The only thing we wish Foto would improved on is bus times run more frequent during the day as the hotel is located on a very steep hill and tuk tuk drivers struggle going up. The walk down can also be dangerous I wouldn't recommend it-its about 15 minutes.A cab from Foto hotel to Kata beach should be 200 bht and 500bht to patong. Staff are polite and always greeted us. English quite good just speak slowly. Foto hotel as a 4 star hotel is underrated! It's definitely a 5 star! If you want quiet, beautiful beaches and a glamorous affordable hotel Foto Hotel is perfect. We will definitely be returning!

Poor Food and Bad Location
The large room, sea view and hot tub
Our stay was just okay. The hotel is up on a hill and it takes about 30 minutes to walk up and down 3-4 hills to get to the town. The staff talked very fast and they smirked at us every time we walked in the lobby to ask questions. They have one restaurant for breakfast, lunch and dinner and the food was not good. Their menu choices are not desirable at all. I don't recommend this hotel at all to anyone.

Views, Rooftop, Pool
It was really lovely, and the staff were so helpful. the only thing is that our room had some electrical problems in the middle of the night, and we got locked out a couple of times because of this. Otherwise, we loved it, and would definitly stay again.

A Beautiful Hotel
pool, room, staff
Foto Hotel My wife and I stayed at this hotel in early February, and I must say I am so glad we did. We had what was classed as a long stay at the hotel, so included was free mini bar everyday, as well as dinner on the evening of our choice. In the time we were there, the staffs were very friendly and helpful. Yes the distance up the hill can be a challenge, but once at the hotel the view from the pool etc is breath taking. There was some construction work going on next door to the hotel at the time of our stay, but this had no effect on us at all. I would highly recommend this hotel, for relaxing and chilling out around the pool area, and just soaking in the views with a good book. Thanks Foto Hotel, you made our stay a very happy one.
