Love it or leave it, the obsession with taking the perfect selfie isn’t going away anytime soon – particularly when there’s a “travelgram” hashtag involved. An entire generation is already ordering dishes and picking outfits based on their Instagrammability, so why should choosing a travel destination be any different? Enter: Conrad Maldives Rangali Island, a picturesque resort that has truly grasped the importance of taking the type of holiday photos that will send your Instagram notifications into overdrive.
The five-star hotel has recently introduced a new #InstaTrail around its property and beyond, with a dedicated “Instagram Butler” introducing guests to the most idyllic spots on the island. During the tour, you’ll discover everything from the farthest tip on Rangali Island to fish-eye views of the Indian Ocean in the world’s first all-glass undersea restaurant Ithaa. Also on the itinerary? Getting your photo taken while swinging on a traditional Maldivian swing set in the serene, turquoise waters that the region is known for. But wait – there’s more.
Said Instagram Butler can also teach you how to best capture the “golden hour”, that incredibly narrow and oh-so-photogenic window of time just before sunset or after sunrise. And if you’re a proud member of the #yogaeverydamnday club, you can tie the tour in with a yoga class during which you’ll be taught the most Insta-worthy poses against the serenity of the ocean. Whether or not this is the future of taking vacation photos remains to be seen, but in the meantime, Savoir Flair rounds up a selection of the type of imagery you can look forward to with an Instagram Butler in tow.
