Luxury seaside resort takes 5-star service to a whole new level.
From dinner under the Indian Ocean to an outdoor cinema beneath the stars, Conrad Maldives Rangali Island resort has tailored its services so guests can take advantage of the stunning surroundings with striking images for their social media feeds.
The hotel has kept a cut above the rest by introducing the world’s first Instagram Butlers service. The innovative and unique concept is dedicated to giving guests the edge when it comes to capturing those picture-perfect moments – and making everybody back home green with envy.
Rather than simply taking over guests’ social media feeds for the duration of their stay, the Instagram Butler will offer more of a tutor’s role by providing tips and tricks on how to capture a good shot, camera angles, where to pose and what time of day the lighting will be best.
A package deal known as the #Instatrail takes guests on a tour around Rangali Island’s most photogenic locations, while the butler offers advice on how best to get an amazing shot. Notable stops along the way include a traditional Maldivian swing on the beach, (an undholi), and Ithaa, the world’s first all-glass undersea restaurant.
However, the insta-service can also be combined with a number of special itineraries curated by the hotel in order to aid guests in optimal photo opportunities, while at the same time allowing them to enjoy all the amenities the resort has to offer.
These include an one-hour stargazing experience, a three-hour cookery close at Jeremy Leung’s Ufaa restaurant, and a five-hour tour of the local atolls, designed to introduce guests to Maldivian culture, all to be expertly caught on camera and shared with the world.
The service is a great solution to the pressures of modern-day traveling and harnesses the marketing power of the most influential demographic – millennial travelers.
As the saying goes, if it’s not on Instagram, it didn’t happen.
