Extraordinary travel experience from world’s greatest icons

Airbnb introduces Icons, a new category of extraordinary experiences hosted by the greatest names in music, film, television, art, sports, and more. Presenting the first 11 Icons on Airbnb, the new experience drops worldwide throughout the year.

Icons let guests step into worlds one can only ever dream of. Drift off in the Up house. Spend the night in the Ferrari Museum. Hang out with Kevin Hart.

Brian Chesky, Co-Founder and CEO of Airbnb said, “Icons take you inside worlds that only existed in your imagination—until now. As life becomes increasingly digital, we focus on bringing more magic into the real world. With Icons, we’ve created the most extraordinary experiences on Earth.”

The first 11 Icons:

Drift off in the Up house: Sleep inside one of Disney and Pixar’s most iconic homes—and yes, it floats. You’ll explore Carl’s world in this detailed re-creation of his home, complete with more than 8,000 balloons, and located in the scenic red rocks of Abiquiu, New Mexico.

Spend the night in the Ferrari Museum: Immerse yourself in the world of racing with a stay at the Ferrari Museum in Maranello, Italy. You’ll sleep on a bed crafted from the same leather as Ferrari seats, take a lap with Scuderia Ferrari ambassador driver Marc Gené, and head to Emilia-Romagna’s premier race as a VIP.

Step into X-Men ‘97: Live like the X-Men as you stay in a 2D animated re-creation of Marvel Animation’s X-Mansion in Westchester, New York. You’ll discover your mutant abilities and even train in the Danger Room.

Go VIP with Kevin Hart: Kevin Hart is taking you inside his members-only Coramino Live Lounge for an A-list evening. You’ll join Kevin and his friends in this secret speakeasy, where they’ll treat you to a tequila tasting and live stand-up by the best comedians in the game.

Wake up in the Musée d’Orsay: Stay in the Paris art museum’s iconic clock room, which has been transformed into a luxurious bedroom by Mathieu Lehanneur, designer of the Paris 2024 Games torch and cauldron. From the terrace, you’ll witness the historic Opening Ceremony of the Olympic Games along the River Seine.

Join a living room session with Doja Cat: Fresh off a tour performing on the world’s biggest stages, Doja is hosting you for a much more intimate experience. You’ll enjoy an unforgettable living room performance from the Grammy-winning artist, including her favourite songs and tracks from her latest album.

Stay in Prince’s Purple Rain house: Prince purchased the Minneapolis, Minnesota home featured in the legendary film Purple Rain, but it’s never been available to the public until now. Explore the home and go crazy for rare and special tracks from Prince’s world in an exclusive studio session.

Game with Khaby Lame: TikTok sensation Khaby Lame invites you to his hometown of Milan, Italy for an epic, overnight gaming experience. You’ll stay in a one-of-a-kind gaming loft that Khaby designed himself, where you’ll #learnfromkhaby and face off with him in a Fortnite Battle Royale.

Go on tour with Feid: Join the reggaeton superstar on his FERXXOCALIPSIS World Tour for an entire week. You’ll join the crew for rehearsals, ride along on the tour bus, and get backstage access for every show.

Live like Bollywood star Janhvi Kapoor: Janhvi Kapoor is inviting you into the legendary, never-before-seen Kapoor family home in Chennai, India. From learning her Bollywood beauty secrets to tasting her favourite southern Indian dishes, Janhvi will welcome you personally on this ultimate overnight stay.

Make core memories with Inside Out 2: In anticipation of the June 14 release of Disney and Pixar’s new movie Inside Out 2, you’re invited to an overnight stay at Headquarters, the control center of Riley’s emotions. Your host, Joy, will welcome you into her vibrant world to witness the emotions in action and help keep things in balance.

Most Icons are free, and all are priced under USD 100 per guest. A countdown displays the time until each Icon goes live, and guests can request to book through the app. The lucky guests who are selected will receive a digital golden ticket, and more than 4,000 tickets will be available in 2024.

Icons and new features for group trips are available starting on May 2. Upgrades for hosts are available today by enrolling in Airbnb Early Access in the app.
