Karisma Hotels & Resorts Unveils Connoisseur Collection

If you’re the type of traveller who still believes luxury and all-inclusive are two mutually exclusive terms, then a new program by Karisma Hotels & Resorts might just have you singing a different tune.

The hotel brand, best known for its Gourmet Inclusive Experience, which features an elevated culinary program, is now launching the Connoisseur Collection by Karisma, where elite travellers enjoy a completely customized vacation when staying at any of the resorts and hotels in the Karisma brand.

“Karisma has always been committed to setting a new standard, redefining and elevating what luxury represents at all-inclusive properties,” said Armando Chomat, executive vice president of sales & marketing at Karisma Hotels & Resorts. “The debut of the Connoisseur Collection by Karisma takes our cutting-edge philosophy even further and will impress even the most discerning traveler.  We’ve taken into consideration every lesson learned over the past 16 years to deliver the highest levels of service, spectacular amenities and unforgettable vacations thoughtfully curated for each guest of Karisma Hotels & Resorts’ extraordinary new collection.”

Even before they check in, Connoisseur Collection guests have access to a dedicated phone line and a concierge who organize their in-room liquor choices, mini bar preferences, spa treatments and priority restaurant reservations.

And when it comes to designing your on-site excursions, the concierge can arrange all the details. Whether you’re looking for a night dive from a private boat, a hot air balloon excursion, or to play a couple rounds at the area’s most elite golf courses, the dedicated concierge has the right contacts at their fingertips to build your itinerary the way you want it.

Upon arrival, guests can hit the beach (or bar) right away and let the concierge do the unpacking. Of course, they’ll also repack your luggage upon departure, maximizing your time to enjoy the resort. Other benefits include personally monogrammed robes, guaranteed connecting suites, and a 15 per cent discount on all spa services, special events, and premium wines from the property’s award-winning list. Connoisseur Collection guests can also book in-room spa treatments.

What’s more, Connoisseur Collection guests only have access to the most coveted of accommodations through the brand, including The Karisma Villas.

These three beachfront villas – two 6-bedroom villas and one 5-bedroom villa, located in the Riviera Maya, Mexico, can accommodate larger parties and each offer access to a private pool and personalized services such as a private chef and a personalized Majordomo. Connoisseur Collection guest can also choose their accommodations from select two- and three-bedroom suites, overwater bungalows and a themed luxury villa modeled after the undersea home of SpongeBob SquarePants, throughout the brand's offerings.

Connoisseur Collection guests also have the opportunity to enjoy kosher meals from a nearby kosher-certified kitchen. The kitchens within The Karisma Villas can be kosher-certified upon request.
