Steps beyond all inclusive by Karisma

food on plate

Taking resort dining to new heights, Mexico’s Karisma hotels introduces guests to haute cuisine, incorporating some of the most innovative techniques, unique flavours and wholesome ingredients. This is Gourmet Inclusive® by Karisma.

The hotel chain’s culinary philosophy sets the tone for world-class service, provided by friendly, professional staff, and gourmet cuisine, prepared by critically-acclaimed chefs – all served up in opulent, tropical settings. Guests are treated to a myriad of dishes, from prime AAA beef to Caribbean-inspired appetizers, delicious surf n’ turf to mouth-watering desserts, all accompanied by fine, hand-crafted wines. This year, Karisma shows its devotion to Canadian wines, in specific, as it offers its guests a taste of the Jackson family of wines.

In one of Mexico’s most sought-after destinations, the Riviera Maya, Karisma’s personalized service shines through in all the tiny, yet significant details. Upon arrival to one of the El Dorado Spas & Resorts or Azul Hotelsm, guests are immediately greeted with a welcome cocktail, a refreshing towel and warm smiles. Indulgences like 24-hour room service, beach butlers, concierge and turndown services are all part of the package at Karisma’s luxury all inclusive resorts.

The masterminds of Karisma’s trademark Gourmet Inclusive program are the star chefs – trained at the top Michelin and Zagat-rated restaurants spanning the globe – integrating cutting-edge techniques and styles to each dish when bringing the finest ingredients and flavours to the table. From the Catch of the Day to sumptuous Mexican delicacies, and special food-related events like beach paella parties, beach picnics, wine tastings and food pairings, Karisma seems to be raising the bar on resort dining.

For the more “spirited” guest, the Karisma Gourmet Inclusive experience rolls out an eclectic selection of exquisite beverages in gorgeous seaside settings. Theme bars like the Tequila Bar offer daily tastings, and the Martini Bar, shake or stir 31 different kinds of martinis. Wine tastings are run by Sommeliers while premium brands and signature drinks are some of the many highlights of the Gourmet Inclusive program.

It looks like Karisma has perfected the recipe that leads to its guests’ hearts (and appetites) with the Gourmet Inclusive program. So, go ahead and order seconds — we won’t tell.
