Four Iconic Instagram-Friendly Hotels
It’s no secret that new hotels are being designed around how they will best appear on Instagram. Influencers are relied upon to spread the good word about a hotel via their social media platforms, so it is imperative that hotels have the perfect spaces to capture that essential shot. However, there are some iconic hotels that have been Instagram-worthy since before social media came along. We take a look at some historic hotels whose visual stock has never fallen.
Taj Lake Palace, Udaipur
The Taj Lake Palace hotel in Udaipur, India, was famous long before Instagram came along, having been used as a location for the James Bond film “Octopussy” and the TV series “The Jewel in The Crown”. Appearing to float in the middle of Udaipur’s Lake Pichola, the hotel was built in 1746 as the pleasure palace of Maharana Jagat Singh II, and as a hotel, boasts 66 incredible rooms and 17 grand suites. The area is known as the “Venice of the East”, and it’s easy to see why when visitors come across this pristine white jewel that arises from the still waters of the lake.
Hotel Marincanto, Positano
This iconic Amalfi Coast hotel in Italy has also been the setting for an abundance of films, and has acted as an inspiration for some of the world’s most famous painters. Overlooking the blue waters of the Tyrrhenian Sea, one of the most Instagram-worthy places in the hotel is the stunning infinity pool, where the pool waters merge with those of the sea to create an immersive experience, perfect for your photo feed. Nature pretty much does all the work here, but if you are looking for something extra, the rugged coastline and its picturesque Italian villas will definitely fit the bill.
La Reserve, Paris
Dripping in 19th century decadence, this Parisian hotel is an Instagrammer’s paradise. From the opulent interior decoration to the sublime plates of food served in the hotel’s gourmet restaurants, there is plenty of fodder here for any influencer. Take your pick from the hotel’s 26 suites, 14 rooms or private Parisian apartments, and outside, the city is your oyster, as it is located just moments away from some of the French capital’s most iconic landmarks, such as the Champs Elysee.
San Antonio, Santorini
Santorini in Greece could possibly be considered the original Instagram destination, appealing to travelers all over the world because of its photographic whitewashed architecture that stands out in sharp contrast to the glittering Adriatic that surrounds the famous Greek island. This iconic hotel and resort affords visitors panoramic views of the Greek sea and islands, and a shot of the infinity pool on your Insta will have your followers coveting your life at first glance.
