Margaritaville to Open New Caribbean Adults-Only All-Inclusive 

By: Alexander Britell - July 6, 2022

Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville brand is opening another new all-inclusive in the Caribbean. 

And this time it will be just for adults. 

Margaritaville and Karisma Hotels and Resorts are collaborating on the new Margaritaville Island Reserve Riviera Maya, slated to open in 2023 as the brand’s first adults-only resort. 

The property will feature 355 suites in 13 categories, along with nine food and beverage concepts, three swimming pools, two pickle ball courts, a St. Somewhere Spa and the first Landshark Brewery in Mexico.

That’s along with 13 different room types, from King Paradise Suites to Beachfront Honeymoon Suites and the Coral Reefer Signature Suite, which includes its own oversized infinity pool, an outdoor pool table and a custom-built gaucho-style grill, among other touches. 

It will be the third Margaritaville Island Reserve in the wider Caribbean, joining existing properties in Cap Cana, Dominican Republic and the Riviera Cancun.

The company has already launched reservations for the resort, which is slated to open in early 2023. 

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 and Resorts.

The property will feature all of the Margaritaville signatures, from the JWB Steakhouse to Italian trattoria Frank & Lola’s and the Five O’Clock Somewhere Bar & Swim-Up Bar.

“Guests will be transported to an upscale coastal retreat where every room offers a view due to its crescent moon shape,” Mathieu said. “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.”

That’s along with other concepts like Salted Rim, an “agave-inspired mixology bar” and Far Side of the World, featuring the food of the Pacific Rim. 

In another first for the Island Reserve brand, the resort will have almost 5,000 square feet of meeting space, with capacity for up to 400 people. 

It’s yet another new development to add to what is a blazing hotel pipeline on the Caribbean coast of Mexico.
