Our favourite rooms
Book an Ocean Hall room for views of Kata Noi and the Andaman Sea. These rooms have a balcony with a sea-facing bath tub and an oversized day-bed; inside, there's a huge bed and a sleek monochrome bathroom. Walls are decorated with black-and-white pictures of Phuket and words of wisdom from famous photographers.
The outside pool has sweeping views of three Phuket beaches: Kata Noi, Kata and Karon. It’s a popular spot for posing and selfies, so be resigned to unintentionally photo-bombing while you swim.
Milk-white Bokeh Spa, tucked away in the leafy gardens, dispenses massages and facials (using honey, coconut oil and fresh fruit extracts) every day between 11am and 10pm. It's lit softly in the evening, giving an added glow to your treatment.
Nikon camera; monochrome beachwear.
The hotel offers a free shuttle bus service to Kata Beach three times a day. Guests can hire motorbikes for around THB300 a day.
Foto isn't suited to guests under seven; it's more of a couples' retreat and rooms sleep two people only.
