In keeping with the company's commitment to quality and guest satisfaction, each of the new vacation rentals has been personally inspected by a member of the Luxury Retreats global team or a trusted local partner. All Luxury Retreats rentals come with complimentary concierge services to organize all vacation needs, worldwide guest support, as well as villa specialists who help travelers find their perfect villa - all without charging any membership fees.

"Guests have been asking our villa specialists about these destinations for some time and data collected from our annual guest surveys also revealed a demand for travel to these ski and sun markets," said Anna Vysotskaya, Vice President of Product Development and Partnerships for Luxury Retreats. "We are thrilled to serve our guests' needs with the launch of hand-picked villas in each location, and we continue to vet villas for additional expansions in the coming months."

Colorado: Exclusive Ski Offer

With new properties in Aspen, Telluride and the Vail Valley added to its existing Breckenridge selection, Luxury Retreats now offers over 80 high-end Colorado vacation rentals. Many are equipped with elegant extras ranging from access to year-round ice skating rinks to luxury gourmet bonfires with personal butlers. Luxury Retreats' winter rates for the new Colorado vacation rentals start at $400 per night for a 1-bedroom condo to over $10,000 for a night at North America's top-rated private ski estate.

To celebrate the Colorado launch, Luxury Retreats has secured an exclusive 20% discount off of ski and snowboard rentals for guests throughout its North American ski destinations.  As an added bonus for families, Whistler and Colorado guests will benefit from a free children's ski or snowboard rental with every adult rental.  Both promotions are applicable exclusively through Luxury Retreats' complimentary, dedicated concierge service.

Bali: Spectacular Villas, Exceptional Value

Following a successful entry into Thailand's luxury villa rental market in 2007, Luxury Retreats has selected Bali for the next phase of its Asian expansion.  The island, which saw a 10% increase in tourist arrivals from 2011 to 2012, is known for its remarkable value and spectacular homes, such as the 5-bedroom Villa Ombak Putih, with nightly rates starting at $950, and including a full staff, ocean views and an exquisite 30-meter length pool. Luxury Retreats' 23 new Bali villas feature services and amenities on par with even the most prestigious hotels, including pool and beachfront properties, in-house chef and butler services, tennis courts, modern gyms and alfresco dining.

Kauai and Canouan Island: Ultra-Private Escapes

The remaining two island destinations are located in the company's most popular regions: Hawaii and the Caribbean.  Kauai joins Maui, Oahu and Big Island as Luxury Retreats' fourth Hawaiian destination.  In the Caribbean, the Grenadines' Canouan Island is designed to appeal to travelers looking for an ultra-private escape.  Just southwest of Mustique, Canouan Resort boasts 12 Luxury Retreats villas, a new runway (ideal for private jets), and a world-class golf course.
