A recent online survey has claimed to have discovered one of the most photogenic hotels on the planet. First of all, Luxury Travel Advisor asked votes to be submitted online. As a result of the 121,000 votes cast, more than a third of participants crowned Anantara Kihavah as the ‘Most Instagrammable Hotel In The World’.
There are a number of property features helping to boost the attraction of the premier resort. These include ‘an underwater restaurant, where guests can watch the sea life as they dine. In addition, there’s also an observatory offering star-gazing sessions with an in-house astronomer’, reports Harper’s Bazaar.
‘I would like to thank Luxury Travel Advisor’s many, many voters for recognising the unparalleled beauty of our island,’ said the hotel’s general manager, Dylan Counsel.
‘We’ve been lucky to have award-winning landscapers, architects and interior designers working in harmony to perfect our surrounds. Their good work is enhanced everyday by the resort team who take care of our island, reefs and ocean with such dedication.’

The Runner-up hotels
There are a number of additional resorts that featured heavily in the voting. These include Mandapa, A Ritz-Carlton Reserve and Viceroy Los Cabos.
‘Located in the Maldives’, Anantara Kihavah Maldives Villas is an ideal gateway from which to explore the Indian Ocean. There are 80 private pool villas, ranging from 2,800 square feet to nearly 30,000 square feet’, reports Matt Turner of Luxury Travel Advisor.
But what about Canada?
Most of all, it’s worth noting that the Great White North is home to some very photogenic hotels too. The Banff Springs Hotel is lovingly referred to at ‘The Castle In The Rockies’. It’s enchanting turrets and grand scale has stood proud in the Bow Valley since 1888. It has welcomed famous guests such as Queen Elizabeth II and Marilyn Monroe.
Furthermore, other hotels of note, as recognised by The Reader’s Digest, include Le Chateau Frontenac and Newfoundland’s Fogo Island Inn. However within British Columbia, one of the top three hotels in Whistler is Nita Lake Lodge. The property benefits from being Whistler’s only lakeside resort and guests enjoy stunning room views and seasonal al fresco dining.
Built in 2008, the property is named after the lake, which in turn takes its name from a North American indigenous word meaning “bear”. Read more about the history of Nita Lake Lodge by clicking here.
