Waldorf Astoria Maldives Ithaafushi has won the Forbes Travel Guide ‘Hotel Instagram of the Year’ award.

Forbes Travel Guide has announced its 2021 Star Awards. New for this year is a ‘Hotel Instagram of the Year’ award, and that goes to the Waldorf Astoria Maldives Ithaafushi, which has 145,000 followers.

The Maldives resort won ‘for curating a feed that radiates personality, engages with followers and has an overall stunning aesthetic’.

But don’t just trust us — keep scrolling to see for yourself.

To decide the award, Forbes Travel Guide's (FTG) editorial department determined five nominees from its highest-performing luxury hotel posts on FTG's own Instagram account for 2020. Then FTG asked its readers and followers to select their favourite feed in an online survey.

Filip Boyen, CEO of Forbes Travel Guide, said: ‘In this unprecedented time for the travel industry, every persisting staff member at a hotel, restaurant and spa is a winner. But we also wanted to honor those hospitality workers who went above and beyond during the pandemic to aid their guests and colleagues.’

Forbes Travel Guide, which is headquartered in Atlanta, is a global rating system for luxury hotels, restaurants and spas, drawn up by an independent inspection process.
