Instagram doesn't just make us want Staud bags and Ganni T-shirts—it also makes us want to use up our entire holiday allowance before Easter as our feeds are constantly flooded with infinity pools and Aperol spritzes. Before you plan your holidays for the year, take a look at the Instagram-famous luxury hotels that are on our 2019 wish lists.
There are some travel destinations that are proving particularly popular with the fashion crowd this year, from Amangiri in Utah to an actual pink palace which is the crown jewel of the Amalfi coast. For many of us, hotels this luxurious are a world away from the reality of our annual holiday budget, however, it does make for ten perfect minutes of daydreaming. And we've also rounded up some of the most fabulous pieces you can put in your suitcase too, including under £25 buys that will give you that luxury holiday feeling.
Keep scrolling to see eight of the most beautiful luxury hotels in the world.
Amangiri in Moab, Utah
Cuixmala in La Huerta, Mexico
Ever since Lucy Williams posted her first Instagram picture from Cuixmala resort in Mexico, we have not been able to stop thinking about it. Williams has stayed in so many beautiful hotels around the world, but she says on her blog that this place is different: "I think this was probably the most amazing place I've ever been. I'm sure I say that after most trips, but this place really is like nowhere else. It's funny because it's not turquoise-blue seas like the Maldives or jet-white sand like the Caribbean, yet it felt more peaceful and special than any of those spots." It's a maximalist's paradise, as every room is exploding with bright colours and prints.
Amanjena in Marrakech, Morocco
The five-star Amanjena resort, which sits just outside of Marrakech in Morocco, is a regular fixture on our Instagram feeds thanks to its beautiful gardens and palatial infinity pool.
La Posta Vecchia Hotel in Ladispoli, Italy
If you want to play princess, stay at La Posta Vecchia Hotel. Located just outside of Rome, it was built on the site of ancient ruins and a castle. The hotel's history is so rich that it even has its own private museum.
Six Senses Zighy Bay in Oman
The Six Senses resort Zighy Bay is nestled in the most spectacular sandy cliffs in Musandam in Oman, with villas overlooking the spectacular blue ocean. If you need convincing, we recommend going straight to Millie Mackintosh's Instagram.
El Fenn Hotel in Marrakech, Morocco
Palazzo Avino in Ravello, Italy
Palazzo Avino, which is also known as the "pink palace," is a rose-hued Instagram paradise covered in magical flowers. This 12th century villa might even be the most romantic building on the Amalfi coastline, which is quite the achievement.
Hotel Les Roches Rouges on the Côte d'Azur, France
