An Australian Instagram influencer and lifestyle coach has been attacked online after calling her enforced isolation in a five-star hotel "worse than being in prison". 

Jessica Pinili is a women's health coach whose Instagram bio reads: "I help females become confident in their body and empower their minds." 

Pinili, who splits her time between Bali and Australia, arrived back home in Perth on Sunday just as the Australian Government announced it was required that all overseas arrivals to go into mandatory hotel quarantine.

Without naming the luxury hotel she's been quarantined at, Pinili has been keeping her 9000 Instagram influencers updated with her isolation on social media. The West Australian reports that in an Instagram Story which has now expired, Pinili declared her situation was "about human rights". 

"I don't have access to a balcony or a window that opens... which means for 14 days I will not have fresh air," she emotionally told followers. 

"There are people patrolling the corridor. I can't even walk up and down the corridor.

"This is worse than being a prisoner, prisoners get fresh air."

She also took a jab at Austrlian Prime Minister Scott Morrison and WA Premier Mark McGowan for her predicament 

"I'm just wondering, Mark McGowan and Scott Morrison, what was the thought process behind restricting airflow in isolation?" she asked.

"Because like that alone is going to give me a corona."

Pinili also shared the lunch she was provided: a small garden salad, some bread, an apple, nuts and two bottles of water. 

Since posting the Instagram Story, Pinili says she's received abuse from "keyboard warriors". 

"Cyber-bullying is a real thing and it's disgusting the comments that have been made.

"It's just nasty. Some said I was selfish for wanting air. Another person said you need to think about [holocaust victim] Anne Frank because she had it worse," she says.

"That means no one can complain about anything because she did indeed have it far worse than anyone.

"When people say to me, but you're in a five-star hotel, yes, but I'm in four walls of it. I don't have access to the bar or restaurant or swimming pool."
