The Lux team was created when Airbnb acquired Montreal-based Luxury Retreats in 2017. Our mission is to become the most recognized and trusted brand providing unparalleled world-class travel service. We have the unique opportunity to help people experience the most memorable and mind-blowing trips to the world's finest destinations. While still a fairly new team, we'll be aggressively growing this part of the business. We aim to increase both supply and bookings 10x over the next three years across both Airbnb and LuxuryRetreats.
What is Guest Experience on Lux?
