Everyone knows that the only reason you go on holiday is to up your Instagram game.
Between the beaches, cocktails, blue skies and the tan you’re sure to get, it’s a guaranteed way to get those likes flooding in.
One resort in the Maldives has cottoned on to the millennial desire for gratification on social media and has come up with the genius idea of providing guests with an Instagram ‘butler’ to help them take that perfect vacation photo.
The butler knows exactly where the most photogenic spots are on the resort, and will guide guests around ‘Instagram Trails’ that feature the best spots to snap selfies in front of sandy spots and shaded restaurant tables.
They’ll guide the Insta-obsessed through taking beautiful shots in the resort’s underwater restaurant Ithaa.
Beach yoga will also feature, so you can get that sunset bridge pose on the sand shot you’ve always dreamed about.
The Telegraph said that the butler, who you imagine will have to have the patience of a saint to deal with fussy photo-grabbers, will teach their charges about the ‘golden hour’ and how it’s the best time to get snap happy, as well as different poses that perform well on social media.
Instagram is becoming increasingly important to UK travellers. The Independent says that two fifths of millennials choose a holiday destination based on it Instagrammability.
