Lupita Nyong’o is trying to give you all the vacation envy.

The Academy Award–winning actress and former PEOPLE Most Beautiful honoree has been vacationing on the Indonesian island of Bali this week, and the photos she’s sharing on Instagram are straight off a vintage postcard.

While staying at the luxurious Mulia Bali hotel, the notoriously fashion-forward star has been posting self portraits aplenty. From glamorous shots worthy of a fashion spread to fresh-faced pool selfies, check out all of Lupita’s snaps, below.

Nyong’o’s, 33, feed is a lesson in photo-ready lounging, whether reclining on a linen sofa in your finest island wear…

…or stretched out poolside in the most classic striped bikini. We only hope that #caughtoffguard is sarcastic. No one is allowed to look this chic on the fly.

Posing with a travel companion, Nyong’o gets ready to head off on an exploratory adventure on the lush volcanic isle.

Stunning view + gorgeous girl taking it in = a classic Insta travel photo formula.

Just casually looking more like a goddess than this whole row of statuesque stone ladies.

Never has there been a chicer spread of poolside “necessities…”

…Or a more gorgeously fresh-faced pool selfie. Seriously, where are her mascara smudges?

Rolling up in a golf cart is the new rolling up in a Bentley, per Lupita.

While in Bali, Nyong’o stayed at the Hotel Mulia Bali, a luxury resort that offers six pools, four restaurants, a beautiful beach and, as we’ve learned, infinite Instagramming opportunities with loads of dramatic stone sculptures.

Safely, back in the States, Nyong’0 attended an event for the National Association of Black Journalists and even snapped a peak of her flower-covered luggage and a bold blue manicure that looks surprisingly similar to those tropical waters she was in not too long ago.

Lupita, we’d try and hold onto that vacation a little longer, too.
