Waldorf Astoria Maldives Ithaafushi has the best Instagram and is awarded Hotel Instagram of the Year, according to Forbes Travel Guide.
Forbes Travel Guide (“FTG”), the only global rating system for luxury hotels, restaurants and spas, today unveiled its 2021 Star Awards today, including Hotel Instagram of the Year.
So how did this luxury resort in Maldives win Hotel Instagram of the year?
Forbes Travel Guide’s editorial department determined five nominees from its highest-performing luxury hotel posts on FTG’s own Instagram account for 2020. Then FTG asked its readers and followers to select their favorite feed in an online survey. Thousands voted in the contest, according to Forbes.
Waldorf Astoria Maldives Ithaafushi won for curating a feed that “radiates personality, engages with followers and has an overall stunning aesthetic,” according to a representative of Forbes.
The other finalists include: Airelles Gordes, La Bastide in the French Riviera; Condado Vanderbilt Hotel in Puerto Rico; Four Seasons Resort Orlando at Walt Disney World Resort; and Grand Hotel Tremezzo in Lake Como.
Waldorf Astoria Maldives Ithaafushi opened in July 2019. The luxury resort spans across three interconnected islands encircling a lagoon in the South Malé Atoll. The resort has 122 all-villa suites and is accessible via 30-minute luxury yacht ride from Malé International Airport.
The Maldives is one of the most beautiful destinations in the world with perfect-temperature, crystal-clear lagoons; overwater villas; white-sand beaches; and private butlers at beck and call. 80% of visitors to the Maldives are couples, which is why it’s a hot spot for honeymooners.
