Only yesterday, I found myself ogling at an image of a breathtaking hotel on Instagram, while secretly adding it to my favourites.

The power of social media is only spiralling and everything is about picturesque landscapes and divine locales. More so, how can we flaunt our picture-perfect locations without the high and mighty Instagram!

While top-notch service and location pretty much dictates the hotel rule-book, a large chunk of travellers are also giving key importance to the appearance of hotels and resorts around the world.

Australian websites Fashion Journal, which focuses on free fashion and lifestyle, and, for online travel bookings, have compiled a list of the nine most Instagram-worthy hotels and resorts for you.

12 of the most Instagrammable bathtubs on Koh Samui, Thailand

Hotel Plaza Athénée, Paris, France

Situated in the heart of our beloved Paris, the Hotel Plaza Athénée is simply belle!

The interiors are typically French, adorned with art and chandeliers, but my favourite element is the hotel’s red and white facade and a balcony view of the Eiffel Tower.

Canaves Oia Suites, Santorini, Greece

I personally feel Instagram was created for places such as Santorini.

Granted every angle of Santorini offers the most inspiring views, but Canaves Oia location is breathtaking.

Imagine private luxury suites overlooking the most enviable views of the Aegean Sea, coupled with poolside drinks amid the white-on-white ambience.

Ayana Resort, Bali, Indonesia

The resort’s name immediately strikes a chord, given that it’s home to the legendary Rock Bar.

Yet, the hotel occupies a position on this list for different reasons.

Perched on a cliff, the hotel offers the most beautiful views of the sea below, whether you are sitting by the pool or cosying up to a blanket by the beach.

St Pancras Renaissance Hotel, London, England

It’s like the staircases were built for photos, forget their functionality.

The lavish floral carpets and multi-coloured dome roofs were, after all, the set of a Spice Girls music video.

Picture-perfect for Instagram.

Keemala, Phuket , Thailand

While a large number of hotels have opted for the monotonous beachfront locale, the Keemala Phuket is all about the modest treehouse.

The luxurious pods and villas are set amid a landscape of utmost greenery.

Ice Hotel, Jukkasjärvi, Sweden


The Ice Hotel is one of the most interesting hotels in the world.

Given that it’s constructed from ice, a mandatory exercise of rebuilding every year takes place.

Pose with mink fur jackets coupled with adorable fluffy mittens in an average temperature of between -5 degrees to -8 degrees Celsius (23 degrees to 17.6 degrees Fahrenheit).

Jade Mountain Resort, Soufrière, Saint Lucia

The Jade Mountain Resort has often cropped up on my Instagram feed.

The Caribbean hotel caters to the most awe-inspiring views of the turquoise waters beneath, especially since your balcony allows for an all-day photo session.

Cappadocia Cave Suites, Goreme, Turkey

The rugged terrain of the Cappadocia region is such a great contrast to the repetitive beach and mountain landscape.

The Cappadocia Cave Suites blend luxury with aesthetic beauty right in the middle of an ancient cave system dotted with stone hotels.

Things are constantly a-changing at El Fenn but this pink will always stay.

No matter whether it is verandas, suites or lounges at El Fenn, each element is illuminated with splashes of colour. Visualise a myriad of colours featuring a palette of bright red, emerald green, royal blue and pastel pink.

Moroccan decor is perhaps the most expressive with ethnic textiles, stained glass and original artworks from the owner’s private collection adorning the boutique property.
