This adults-only beach re­sort of­fers beau­ti­ful wooden tree houses made from Mex­i­can-royal-ebony Khat­alosh and fea­tures floor-to-ceil­ing win­dows pro­vid­ing un­matched nat­u­ral light - just what you need to cap­ture that glow­ing magic hour selfie.

Fea­tur­ing the largest rooftop ter­race in Val­daora, Ho­tel Hu­ber­tus is an ideal place to ad­mire the breath­tak­ing views of the Dolomites and the Ve­drette di Ries Moun­tains. As pools go, Ho­tel Hu­ber­tus’ sky-high in­fin­ity pool is prob­a­bly one of the world’s most dra­matic. Take a pic­ture from an un­usual view­point and you’ve got your­self a fab­u­lous In­sta­gram post that will be sure to make your friends’ jaws drop.

It’s no se­cret that cer­tain types of pho­tos gen­er­ate more Likes than oth­ers on In­sta­gram, and we think pool shots with a moun­tain­ous back­drop will fare quite well amongst your fol­low­ers. With panoramic views of the Swiss Alps, The Cam­brian is lo­cated in the cen­ter of Adel­bo­den and fea­tures an out­door heated pool over­look­ing the moun­tains. Snap a shot and take a dip pre or après-ski, or skip the slopes al­to­gether and float around un­til it’s fon­due time. This is Switzer­land, af­ter all.

Lush green jun­gles, un­spoiled beaches, the pris­tine wa­ters of the South At­lantic, and a beau­ti­ful clear blue sky – your un­in­ter­rupted Brazil­ian view is courtesy of Céu de Boipeba guest house on Boipeba Is­land. Re­lax in one of the ham­mocks over­look­ing the Praia de Cueira, and en­joy a re­fresh­ing cock­tail be­fore cap­tur­ing and post­ing an eye-catch­ing im­age for your fol­low­ers to see (and Like!). Feel­ing ad­ven­tur­ous? Trek along the beach to Morere where low tides at­tract tourists look­ing to take a dip in the nat­u­ral pools.

Af­ter max­ing and re­lax­ing in what feels like a real life In­sta-wor­thy shot, we don’t blame you for be­ing in­spired to take the Moroc­can aes­thetic home with you! Af­ter all, you’re not alone, a study by Book­ found that ap­prox­i­mately 41% of trav­el­ers feel in­spired to un­der­take in­te­rior de­sign work when they re­turn home from a hol­i­day.
