Instagram Envy: Grand Wailea, Maui

If you are like me, Instagram is part of your almost daily routine, especially when traveling. The whole point of Instagram is to show off some great shots and when on vacation, it's a way for users to boast a little about where they are.

The Grand Wailea, A Waldorf Astoria Resort, has been an iconic property on the Wailea side of Maui for decades, and most that have visited the property always vow to return. Check out the slideshow for some photo tips on how to create some excitement within your Instagram feed when in Maui.
