Through isolations, quarantines, and lockdowns, Instagram has reminded us that there is indeed a big, beautiful world out there waiting for us to explore. Odds are, in the last two years, you found yourself exercising your swiping thumb, scrolling through an endless array of stunning images, dreaming up your next escape. And, as a new Money.co.uk analysis has revealed, there are a few Insta-famous five-star hotels that top our IG feeds.
"By analyzing Instagram hashtag data, Money.co.uk has revealed which five-star hotels around the world appear on Instagram the most, making them the most beautiful to look at," a spokesperson for the website shared with Travel + Leisure.
According to their research, Dubai's Burj Al Arab Jumeirah is the most beautiful luxury hotel (per Instagram data), and really, this comes as little surprise considering a stay at the hotel includes amenities like a Rolls-Royce chauffeur service.
