Aga Reef Resort has taken down the Africa, Middle East and Oceania bracket’s No. 1 seed, Bushmans Kloof Wilderness Reserve and Wellness Retreat, after receiving 60.36 percent of the vote. Nestled between the Pacific Ocean and the lush green mountain backdrop of Upolu’s south coast, Aga Reef Resort is an intimate boutique resort surrounded by gorgeous Samoan scenery. For guests looking for absolute luxury, Aga Reef Resort also has an exclusive VIP villa with stunning lagoon views and a private plunge pool.
And then there were eight. We’re one round closer to naming a champion for the 2021 Most Instagrammable Hotel in the World contest—and things are starting to heat up!
The Elite Eight will be open through Thursday, April 1 at 9 a.m. Eastern Time. You may vote in as many or as few matchups as you’d like but you may only vote once per matchup per round. Hotels are separated into four regional brackets: The Americas; Asia and Indian Ocean; Europe; and Africa, Middle East and Oceania. This round will determine each bracket’s “champion.”
And if you need reminding: We’re looking for the best shot that anyone would be able to take during their stay at a hotel. We all know the one—it’s racking up likes and comments and people are DMing you about the stay. And, as soon as you can (and feel comfortable doing so), be sure to reach out to a travel advisor and start planning your next trip to support the industry and local communities, and, of course, take some Instagram-worthy photos.
