What used to be just an alternative to hotels has now become one of the first housing solutions travellers think about when planning their holidays. Airbnb is now expanding its services with a new luxury experience called Airbnb Luxe, 11 years after the company's launch. Holidaymakers will now have the opportunity to stay in exceptional places such as Nukutepipi, an entire private island in French Polynesia that can host 52 guests in total.

In addition to architectural gems in New Zealand, villas in Tuscany and huge castles in France, travellers will even have the chance to stay at the Fleming Villa in Jamaica, a the place where English author Ian Fleming wrote his famous James Bond saga!

The company took this innovative decision in response to its users' growing demand for luxury accommodation and experiences. Last year, the number of reservations for luxury accommodation valued at greater than £790 per night rose by at least 60%, a significant enough number for Airbnb's founders Brian Chesky and Joe Gebbia.

"Today's luxury traveler is craving more than just high-end accommodations; they seek transformation and experiences that leave them feeling more connected to each other and to their destination", Chesky declared.

Airbnb Luxe is also offering travellers a luxury concierge service as well as a 24 hours a day and 7 days a week VIP service managed by professional trip designers. There are more than 2,000 homes to discover around the world on Airbnb Luxe's website. It's the perfect excuse to plan your dream vacation!
