The Most Outrageous Pads On Airbnb Luxe

After Airbnb acquired Luxury Retreats a few years ago, we waited patiently to see the fruits of their purchase, and boy did it not disappoint.

After vetting nearly 2000 villas across the world through a 300-point inspection criteria, Airbnb Luxe launched last month with an impressive roster that has had us salivating all afternoon researching this article.

As more and more locations slowly roll out worldwide, we decided it was about time we dove head first into the world of the elite, dissecting the most outrageous and over-the-top accommodation options available to all on the platform.



Surprisingly, not all of our choices cost a small fortune (okay, most of them do) but if you’re smart about where on the globe you drop a pin – i.e. Thailand not Switzerland – you can get some serious value for money on Airbnb Luxe. We hope you enjoy the luxury design porn below as much as we did.
