Conrad Maldives Rangali Island | Introduces an Instagram butler and an InstaTrail
At the Conrad Rangali Hotel, guests can hire an Instagram butler to help them make the perfect photos, you know those kind of images that makes your homefront jealous! The Conrad Rangali Hotel is located on the tropical island of the Maldives and initiated this in the context of their ‘Stay Inspired’ initiative. Instagram worthy pictures are becoming increasingly important and we spotted several hotels in the past responding to this fact. They all respond to the need for that one image taken from the right angle and at the right time. With the Instagram butler, it must be possible to take images of the beautiful beaches and evenly beautiful sunsets of the Maldives.
Instagram butlers take photos during the InstaTrail
The butler can be hired during your stay in the Conrad Maldives Rangali Hotel, he makes an InstaTrail along most of the island’s most photogenic places. The butlers work at the 5-star hotel, live on the island and they know all the favorite photo spots. Like for example, at the infinity pool, at the underwater restaurant Ithaa or at the undholi (a traditional Maldivian swing) during the ‘golden hour’ shortly after sunrise or before sunset.
Instagram & Hotels
Over the past few months we have spotted several restaurants that facilitate their guests using Instagram with photogenic elements in the interior or exterior design and presentation of their dishes. We also wrote an article entitled Instagrammable food. But hotels are increasingly responding to Instagram as well, although before Instagram got really popular we already spotted the “selfie” tours (2014) in Paris by the Mandarin Oriental Hotel. In 2016, the Four Seasons Resort in Maui appointed an employee as a “photo ambassador“, helping the guests make memories of a perfect vacation at the hotel, using the camera of the guest. More common are the contests on Instagram with a special hashtag. In addition, there are hotels that work with local photographers through Flytographer.com.
