Wyndham’s most Instagram-Worthy Hotels and Resorts
Instagram is the ultimate source of travel ideas for modern travellers. With more than 800 million active users sharing around 95 million photos a day, it’s clear we have a huge appetite for imagery and it’s influencing our travel decisions.
Thanks to Instagram, our search for the perfect vista or striking selfie background is driving a preference towards out of the ordinary locations and experiential resort stays over cookie-cutter hotel rooms to share on Insta-feeds.
If you are keen to curate your next travel adventure, check out six of Wyndham Hotel Group’s most Instagram-worthy hotels and resorts across South East Asia and the South Pacific.
Brisbane’s only street-art hotel has been drawing Instagrammers to the trendy suburb of Fortitude Valley since it opened in 2014 thanks to the building’s striking exterior, which features a four-storey mural of a woman’s face painted by renowned street artist, Rone.
But the eye-catching façade is not the only subject for a quirky Instagram shot. Every corner of TRYP Fortitude Valley is a haven for art connoisseurs, with avant-garde portraits in the hallways, contemporary paintings on the walls, custom blown-glass vanities and colourful murals in the private courtyards of the ground-floor rooms.
Created by acclaimed artists including Beastman, Fintan Magee, Numskull and Rone, the street art featured at TRYP Fortitude Valley reflects the whimsical vibe of this uber-cool urban hotel, which boasts rooms complete with outdoor spas and Astroturf lawns on spacious balconies with views over the city.
