Social media has definitely changed the way we enjoy our travels. Because if the scenery doesn't look good in photos, why bother booking the flight, right? Not that there's nothing a filter on VSCO or selective editing on Snapseed won't fix, but here's a hotel in Phuket, Thailand that's taken the instahoe psyche into full consideration.
We're talking about marble pools, minimalist black interiors, and graffiti art by the driveway.
A different kind of getaway from your usual beach resort, Foto Hotel is located at a hilltop 10 minutes away from Kata Beach in Phuket Island, and is the type of boutique accommodation that allows you to shoot countless OOTDs, SOTDs, OOTNs, top shots, food shots, and even regrammable quotes.
Each room has a different quote printed against either a white or black wall.
This marble counter below the TV is perfect for flatlays.
The bathroom is also mostly made of marble.
OOTD in the shower? Why not!
Plus, the bathrobes are in black, too. Because they're so keen about maintaining the "aesthetic."
And if you want outfit shots around the hotel, the lobby's got an "ahrtsy" wall of black frames.
There are also corridors like this.
The pool area is perfect for the "looking-over-your-shoulder-with-a-hat" kind of photo.
A shot by the driveway is going to be cool, too.
If your eyes are set for beautiful interiors, the Tiffin Mama cafe right beside the pool area (where your complimentary buffet breakfast is served) is nothing short of fancy.
And the buffet? It looks as good as it tastes.
Of course, there's the obligatory summer slushie shot. Or it could also be a cocktail. Your call.
Then at the end of the day, you can snap a picturesque sunset. Or two.
If you're after a picture-perfect vacay, we can't think of a better accommodation than this.
Foto Hotel is located at 218/9 Koktanod Road [Kata-Saiyuan], Karon, Muang, Phuket 83100, Thailand.
