There are a total of 8 Luxurious Chests in the Golden Apple Archipelago area of the Genshin Impact 2.8 update. This article shows the locations of all 8 luxurious chests and how to get them.
#1 Broken Isle Luxurious Chest
Once you finish Xinyan’s Domain, go back inside to the Frozen Soul, an Icy flower. Take this location as a reference point to start the search for Luxurious Chest.
Exit the area where you find Frozen Soul and turn left. Enter the door at the end of the passage, and it will take you to a new Domain area.
This new area includes a series of Melodic Harp & Bloom puzzles, but they’re pretty straightforward. At first, the location just hit the Melodic Harp to create a small wind current that will take you to other islands.
At the second location also, just hit Melodic Harp again to create wind rings and use it to move to the third location.
Third location: Walk on melodic pedals to activate the Melodic Harp. Then Hit the Melodic Harp for the first time to clear the roots and collect a key. Hit the Melodic Harp for the second time to create wind rings.
At the next location, you will find a Heron (Bird) in the middle of the large area. Defeat all the enemies and then interact with the Heron (Bird). Follow Heron to enter a door.
Follow the heron, and hit the drum to create a new path.
Continue in the newly created path and then hit the second drum also. This will unlock the seal around the Melodic harp placed at the exit/entry of the Icy Flower room.
Now retract the path to where Heron was standing earlier. Head to the right and hit Melodic Harp to create wind rings and use it to move to the next location
Enter the door at the new location to reach back to the starting point and head toward the icy room.
At the entrance, you will find the unsealed Melodic Harp. Hit the Melodic Harp and follow the notes to the back of the icy room. Notes from the Melodic Harp will unlock another sealed there that contains a Luxurious chest.
#2 Luxurious Chest 1: Elemental Monument Puzzle
At the center portion of Minacious Isle, as shown in the picture below, you will find four elemental Monument Totems. By hitting them in the correct order you will be able to get a Luxurious Chest and 3 Starlight Coalescence.
Read the stone tablet near the cryo totem and it will tell you to look out for elemental symbols on the island. Sort the symbols from top to bottom based on their elevation and then hit the elemental totems in the same order.
Go to the southwest portion of Minacious Isle and follow the bird as shown in the picture below. This bird will lead you to four big pictures of the elemental symbols.
The bird will first lead you to Hydro Symbol. It is in the water at the beach on the far left of the island. The Cryo symbol is on the cliff wall east of the hydro one. From Cryo, climb up the cliff on the north side to find the Anemo symbol on the grass. The Pyro is a leaf formation above the puzzle. The four pictures sorted from top to bottom based on their elevations are shown below (Pyro-Anemo-Cryo-Hydro).
Now go to the puzzle area and activate the four elemental totems in this sequence: Pyro-Anemo-Cryo-Hydro. Pyro is on top of a broken arch. Anemo and Cryo are on the lower levels. The Hydro is on top of a big arch.
Once you have activated the totems in the correct order, a portal will appear as shown in the picture below. Cast Anemo to the windmill nearby to activate the wind current. Then take the wind current to enter the portal. You will find a Luxurious Chest and 3 Starlight Coalescence inside.

Luxurious Chest 1/2

In case visiting the first time: Enter the first door and solve the Astral puzzle to summon the chest in order to open the door up the stairs to the back of the room to gain access to the next area.
Go up the stairs and enter the room on the rear to reach a new area if you have already solved the Astral puzzle and obtained the chest.
Proceed ahead until you reach an area with translucent bridges. Cross the translucent bridges to reach the next area. In the new area, you will have to solve another Astral puzzle. Input the three correct patterns that appear on the wall in order for the wall constellation to change to an arrow pattern.
On solving the three puzzles, stars will form an arrow. Go to the wall the arrow is pointing at and touch it to reveal the next area.
Enter inside, then take the astral path up to a room with four circular switches on the floor. You will see a pattern drawn on the floor near the switches. To solve the puzzle, you need to step on the switches to form the same pattern in the sky. This can be done in 8 steps as shown in the picture below. I have named the switches as A, B, C, and D for ease of explanation.
Step 1: Step on Switch A
Step 2: Step on Switch B
Step 3: Step on Switch C
Step 4: Step on Switch C
Step 5: Step on Switch C

On solving the puzzle, the precious chest in this room will unlock. Open the chest and a Star will come out from it. Follow the star until you fall into Starry Realm. Complete the Challenge of the Starry Sky there. Then take the portal back and you will find the Luxurious chest in front of the pool in the Mona Domain.
