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 hotels that are on our 2018 wish lists. These are some of the most beautiful hotels to visit this year—and we know just what to put in your suitcase for each. Anyone else suddenly in the mood for a luxury gap year?
Amangiri in Moab, Utah
Kim Kardashian West and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley both recently visited this magnificent hotel in Utah. Located in Moab, it blends in with the desert landscape, features a sand palette throughout and has one of the most Instagrammable pools in the world.
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.
