Karisma Hotels & Resorts and Margaritaville will open the doors to the third property under the Island Reserve brand, Margaritaville® Island Reserve Riviera Maya, in early 2023. The new resort will be the first adults-only all-inclusive property for the brand, which boasts 355 suites within 13 room categories, nine food & beverage locations, three swimming pools, two pickleball courts, a world-class St. Somewhere Spa, the first LandShark Brewery in Mexico, and more.
“As our third property to open under the Island Reserve brand, we wanted to create a new experience for our guests that is different from the others, which is why Margaritaville Island Reserve Riviera Maya is our first adults-only destination,” said Mario Mathieu, SVP Business Development, Design and Construction of Karisma Hotels & Resorts. “Here, guests will be transported to an upscale coastal retreat where every room offers a view due to its crescent moon shape. With an unmatched all-inclusive experience filled with gourmet and immersive culinary experiences, unique beverage options, exceptional personalized service, and the first LandShark Brewery in Mexico, guests will have ample opportunity to mix and mingle with other guests with the resort’s highly social ambiance.”
