Each of the hotels that make up this famous association, not only meets the highest standards of the hospitality industry, but also gives guests a luxurious opportunity to take great pictures – whether it’s a selfie or a romantic photo shoot. Here are just a few options that The Leading Hotels of the World recommend.

Hassler Roma

Perched above the Spanish Steps, this mansion in Piazza Trinita dei Monti is captured by cameras every day. But only Hassler Roma guests have the opportunity to take vivid pictures against the background of the city panorama. The best way to do this is to stay in the Penthouse Suite, designed by Hassler Roma owner Roberto E. Wirth. Located on the eighth floor, the room impresses not only with its design, but also with views of the gardens of Villa Borghese and Villa Medici, St. Peter’s Basilica and the Pantheon, opening from the travertine marble terraces surrounding the suite from all sides. Luxurious bathrooms with panoramic windows deserve special attention.

Bairro Alto Hotel

An equally impressive selfie spot against the backdrop of the skyline of the city will be from the terrace of the BAHR bar of the luxurious boutique hotel Bairro Alto Hotel, located at the intersection of the cosmopolitan Chiado district and the bohemian Bairro Alto. Everything here is photogenic, from the recently refurbished interiors of the public areas and rooms to the exquisitely crafted gastronomic offerings in the restaurants and bars, even breakfast in the room, not to mention the views. And in general, you won’t be able to leave such a colorful city as Lisbon without a couple of hundred photos.

The Fontenay Hamburg

The unusual look of this five-star hotel makes you reach for your camera on the way. Located on the shores of Lake Alistair, the hotel building, designed by German architect Jan Strommer, echoes the flowing natural lines of the lake. Inside The Fontenay Hamburg, guests of the hotel can enjoy equally bright instaspots: from the atrium, whose 27-meter ceiling is decorated with 198 shiny decorative panels resembling scales, to the infinity pool, visually merging with the surface of the lake, and stunning views of the city from the terrace of The Fontenay Bar.

São Lourenço do Barrocal

Shouldn’t we move now from the city to nature? Especially if we are talking about a historic 19th-century farmland with an area of ​​​​780 hectares, spread over the expanses of the Portuguese region of Alentejo. Now here is the São Lourenço do Barrocal Hotel, which, in addition to rooms and cottages, includes its own winery. From the simple and stylish interiors within the hotel itself, to the manor grounds dotted with ancient megalithic boulders (including the largest menhir in the Iberian Peninsula, a ceremonial standing stone) and, of course, vines, an orchard and centuries-old olive trees, you just appreciate the range of possibilities! And also breakfasts in the apiary, lunches in the arena for bullfighting, cozy picnics with a basket and a blanket on the grass …

Bill & Coo Mykonos

On the Greek island of Mykonos, the sun shines most of the year – under such a powerful “spotlight” you can see all the shades of the blue Aegean Sea and take breathtaking shots. And the Bill & Coo Mykonos hotel is one of the best locations for this. First, you should order breakfast in your room and ask to serve it on the balcony or terrace. The second obligatory photo spot of the hotel is the infinity pool: water sparkling in the rays of the sun and amazing views of the endless sea are the most suitable background for a selfie or a photo shoot in a trendy beach bow. Well, in the evening, you can’t find a place more colorful than the Sunset Lounge with author’s cocktails, Greek snacks and dizzying Mykonian sunsets.

The Datai Langkawi

Among the lush rainforest, which is already 10 million years old, there is another magical place for unique shots. This is the Malaysian resort of The Datai Langkawi, where travelers are attracted not only by fantastic nature, but also by traditional architecture, carefully inscribed in the ecosystem. One of the architectural features of the hotel is the grand staircase of 173 steps, surrounded by greenery. I wonder if you can resist taking a selfie here? The resort’s beach is one of the top ten in the world: turquoise water, warm breeze… and you.

Bahía del Duque

More than 100 thousand sq. m on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean on the island of Tenerife – this is the scope for romantic photo shoots! From Canarian-inspired rooms, suites and villas, swimming pools surrounded by palm trees and tropical plants, to a cozy library and a secluded gazebo on the beach with the best sunset views, every location here is like a set for a love story. Pay special attention to the hotel’s botanical garden: among palm trees, Indian laurels and outlandish flowers, you get lively and sincere photos that you just want to share.
