Holidaying now is about finding the most beautiful hotels and posting the perfect shot, whether it is a cocktail by the pool, a striking sunset from your balcony, or even a cheeky bathroom picture if you have a particularly sumptuous loo.

Dive into our list below of some of our favourite Insta-worthy hotels from around the world, and perhaps you will find the ultimate luxury holiday destination for your next trip, and for your next compilation of envy-inducing Reels.

Marina Bay Sands, Singapore

The most breath-taking sight in the Singapore skyline, Marina Bay Sands hotel is a modern marvel.

It is as incredible to look at from afar as it is from the lofty heights of its spectacular rooftop infinity pool that perches 57 storeys high, which just so happens to be the world’s largest and longest infinity pool at an impressive 150m—the perfect spot to take a panoramic picture for your followers!

Marina Bay Sands is an all-encompassing resort experience. Its shopping mall features more than 170 luxury and premium brands, dining at more than 45 restaurants that offer an eclectic array of international cuisines, 22 bars and nightclubs, as well as a fantastic range of attractions including musicals, shows and singers, and the extraordinary ArtScience Museum.

Bellagio, Las Vegas, USA

Everywhere you look in Las Vegas affords a picture-perfect moment for Instagram, awash with colour and light, it’s loud and unashamedly extravagant.

Every major hotel along the strip is worth taking a thousand pictures but it is the legendary Fountains of Bellagio that really stand out.

More than 1,000 fountains sway and soar in front of the hotel every 15-30 minutes (depending on the time of day) showcasing a free light and sound performance that seems to get more fascinating with every viewing. 

A visit to Bellagio surely warrants a bombardment of exquisite pool pictures to your feed too, relax on a sun lounger and gaze across the shimmering water with a cocktail in the forefront to really show off.
