Earlier this summer, launched as the “sophisticated Airbnb alternative for the luxury traveler.” With a focus on ultra-luxury properties, from villas to mansions to palazzos, the unique mobile platform allows you to book properties that would otherwise be unavailable.
But beyond offering what A.M.A Selections calls the “world’s top 1% of properties” in more than 100 locations, what else makes this new booking platform stand apart? For starters, each property is not only professionally vetted before it’s listed, but then is also professionally managed — so you’re not left working with a homeowner who may or may not be willing to help in the event you’re locked out of the property or you have a delay. Additionally, travelers have access to a dedicated, digital concierge service and a dashboard with custom, automatically updated and shareable trip itineraries.
Once travelers have booked their stay, they can add on extra experiences, such as private tours other travelers won’t have access to.
Just in the planning process and not sure about booking yet? The A.M.A Selections platform doesn’t show you potential properties for booking based on things like ratings, popularity or an algorithm. Instead, an in-house reservation agent helps you pick the best options for you, based on your personal criteria and what you want most from your stay, whenever you’re ready to book.
