The newest Margaritaville resort in the wider Caribbean is set to make its official debut in July, Caribbean Journal has learned.
The new Margaritaville Island Reserve Riviera Cancun, the product of a partnership between Margaritaville and Karisma Hotels and Resorts, says it is welcoming guests beginning July 1.
It’s set in the “Riviera Cancun,” the stretch of Mexican Caribbean beach south of the center of Cancun and just north of Puerto Morelos.
The launch will make it the first-ever Margaritaville-branded resort in Mexico, part of the growing resort empire for Jimmy Buffett’s iconic brand.
The launch of the new all-inclusive resort comes after the property’s opening was pushed back due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which began just as the hotel was slated to debut.
It’s also the first-ever Margaritaville Island Reserve resort in the wider Caribbean region.
The reopening will come with a host of changes amid the pandemic, with the launch of Karisma’s “Peace of Mind” health and safety program.
That includes “safe, social distancing,” along with what the company says are more than 100 new “cleanliness and wellness protocols” across the property.
Those range from “temperature monitoring thermal camera technology” to ultra-violet sanitization to contactless room service and new apps for reservations.
Karisma calls the resort an “intimate beachfront property,” with a total of 148 rooms across nine-different categories, including those of the popular swim-up variety.
Other amenities include an 8,000-square-foot spa, four pools, four restaurants nd six bars.
Two other Margaritaville Island Reserve resorts are also in the development pipeline in the Caribbean, with planned locations in the Dominican Republic’s Cap Cana and in Jamaica.
