From Crete to Ibiza, Madeira to Marbella, we left no shell unturned in bringing you this collection of seriously snappable stays. So, are you ready? Step this way…
Abaton Island Resort & Spa
Hersonissos, Crete (Heraklion Area)
Woah now… are we on an interior designer’s newsfeed or are we at a heavenly hotel in Hersonissos? It’s a tough call! This five-star stunner knocks it out the park with its effortlessly chic styling and bijou rooms and suites. Crisp whites, marbles accents and the pop of monochrome geometric prints combine to create Instagram post perfection. Get packing guys, Abaton Island Resort & Spa won’t snap itself!
Aria Hotel Budapest
Budapest City, Budapest
Designed around classical, opera, contemporary and jazz music, Aria Hotel Budapest is a treat for the eyes as well as the ears. Inside, tune into funky details like the piano key-tiled flooring and song sheet backdrops. Then when it’s time to turn things up a notch, head to High Note SkyBar on the hotel’s rooftop for swanky cocktails in every shade of the rainbow and incredible panoramic views over the Hungarian capital. Sounds like a social story waiting to happen…
San Antonio Bay, Ibiza
It’s a case of no-filter-needed at this pink-tinged party pad in Ibiza’s famous San Antonio Bay. Glorious from all angles, these one-of-a-kind suites are the perfect place to start snapping the perfect shot with their cool and quirky art-deco-meets-mid-century style. The Marshall speakers, SMEG fridges and your very own cocktail bar make quite the backdrop. Meanwhile, down by the duo of pink (yep, pink) swimming pools, the candy-striped Dream Beds are a selfie in the making… sweet!
Next at Savoy Signature
The appropriately named ‘Next’ takes forward thinking to another level with its tech-savvy features like self-check-in and their very own app. Did we mention the pool has an underwater sound system? Plonk down at the pink rooftop bar and soak up the sparkling sea views before venturing into nearby Funchal Old Town.
Gumbet, Bodrum Area
Millionaire’s Beach Club, palm print décor, cool industrial design? Oh, it’s chic alright. Everything from the beachfront postcode to the dance shows, Pilates classes to the impeccably decorated bedrooms just screams ‘style’, so you’ll have no trouble finding photo opportunities around here. And when you’re ready to party, you can step straight into the action thanks to Very Chic’s super central spot.
Sorrento (Centre), Sorrento Area
Just when we thought Sorrento had already topped the charm charts,
Annabelle Elegance Resort came along and proved us wrong. Italian enchantment cocoons this whitewashed paradise with its pretty poolside parasols, draped curtains and sparkling chandeliers, earning it each and every one of its five shining stars.
Asia Gardens Hotel & Thai Spa A Royal Hideaway Hotel
Benidorm, Costa Blanca

Oriental-themed and extravagant throughout, this majestic hotel will transport you to a world of pure sophistication with its rich colour palettes, exotic gardens and first-class facilities.

Marbella, Costa del Sol
Michelin-starred plates, a rooftop bar, sunset DJ sets… the list of photo opportunities are endless at Amare Beach Hotel Marbella. Unwind in the spa, kick back in the beach club or shade under the palms on a poolside daybed… you can see why it made the CHILLED VIBE line-up. Deciding how to spend your days will be tricky with options like these on offer, but when you’re just 450m from Marbella resort centre, your evenings are well and truly sorted.
Hvar Places by Valamar
Hvar Island (Stari Grad), Split (Area of)
A pebble beach just 50m away? Hvar Places by Valamar knows a thing or two about prime positions. This ‘snap-me-now’ Croatian base will make you swoon with its swanky facilities and creative styling. Calming greys meet wooden accents and boho accessories in the welcoming guest rooms, while the industrial-style bar area’s all eclectic prints and craft beer sipping. Hold on, is that a poolside DJ we hear? Oui siree.
