Camellias Pink Champagne Bar at Hotel Bennett

It’s no secret that this pink-hued Champagne and caviar lounge is a bucket list destination for photos. The “Most Instagrammable Restaurant in South Carolina” (according to the Food Network) is known for an iconic, weekend Afternoon Tea and bringing influencers to tears at the sight of its cascading crystal chandelier. A Charleston getaway is just not complete without snapping pic at Camellias.

Cupcake Selfie at Salamander Resort

You can’t stay at Salamander Resort & Spa without visiting the sweetest member of our team—Cupcake! Cupcake is our resident miniature horse with a whole lot of personality. Visit her during the day at our state-of-the-art Equestrian Center or on the Grand Lawn on Fridays and Saturdays at 4:00 p.m. for happy hour! During this time, you can indulge in a Cupcake Cocktail, featuring vanilla vodka, dark and light Godiva, house-made whipped cream and topped with rainbow sprinkles.

Igloo Dining at Aspen Meadows Resort

Plato’s Patio at Aspen Meadows Resort

Featuring unforgettable dishes served with impeccable mountain views, you can’t pass up a photo-op at Plato’s restaurant. Dine overlooking the enlightening vistas of Aspen Mountain, Aspen Highlands, and Buttermilk mountains and be sure to snap a photo on the outdoor patio. During the winter months, you can even enjoy the elegant vignette of your own private igloo. This location is sure to take a stunning picture from every angle.

Half Moon Gazebo

Sunset Beach Gazebo at Half Moon Jamaica

The Sunset Beach gazebo has long held the position of being a Half Moon icon for many decades, making it a sought-after backdrop for photos of all kinds. Walking the path to the gazebo is like walking on the Caribbean Sea towards a place that gives you unimpeded views of the horizon and a view of the bay, from which Half Moon got its name. Well-known for its romanticism, its design is quintessentially Half Moon with its peak touching the sky, reaching for the moon. A post from this spot will have all of your followers wishing they were there!

Snake Pit Selfie at Innisbrook

Only the brave dare to enter the Snake Pit! Located on the 16th tee of the Copperhead Golf Course, home of the PGA TOUR’s Valspar Championship, the larger than life “Striker” the snake awaits. The cart path up the hill to the left of the 14th green will lead to the statue making it an easy walk from the Osprey Clubhouse. Did you really play the Copperhead course if you didn’t take a #SnakepitSelfie? 

Shoreline of Rendezvous Bay, Anguilla

Shoreline of Rendezvous Bay at Aurora Anguilla

Nestled upon the sands of Rendezvous Bay, the bright blue sky and glistening turquoise sea will inspire even the most novice of photographers to take as many photos as possible. With the harmonious design of our suites complementing the blueprint of the surrounding natural landscape, the perfect shot can be captured overlooking the Caribbean Sea on our two and a half-mile stretch of pristine shoreline. Take a motivational morning shot or highlight the warmth of golden hour, either way, the undisturbed natural beauty of Aurora Anguilla will get countless double taps in no time.
