The Shore Club Is (Again) Named Most Instagrammable Hotel in the World

The Shore Club Turks and Caicos has been crowned "The Most Instagrammable Hotel in the World" for 2022, following up on its victory last year, making it Luxury Travel Advisor's first-ever repeat champion. 

Following six rounds of voting, where we started with 64 hotels from across the world broken down into four regional brackets, we have finally named a winner. In its Final Round matchup, The Shore Club took down Wildwaters Lodge by securing 51.42 percent of the vote. What's most impressive is over 145,000 people voted in the round (with the breakdown being 74,637 in favor of The Shore Club and 70,509 for Wildwaters Lodge). The champ came out of the Latin America and Caribbean bracket, while the runner-up represented Europe and Africa.
