As top leisure travel destinations open their doors again and nonstop flights begin to return, Karisma Hotels & Resorts announced that its portfolio of resorts based in Mexico and the Caribbean will begin to welcome back guests June 15. The resorts, which include the award-winning Nickelodeon Hotels & Resorts Punta Cana and the brand new Margaritaville Island Reserve Riviera Cancun, have seen marked increases in bookings for vacations and weddings at its various luxury properties, 13 of which are luxury oceanfront properties in the Cancun area.
“We’ve seen the number of direct bookings for trips in the next quarter significantly outpace bookings in 2019,” said Bill Linehan, president of Premier Worldwide Marketing, the exclusive worldwide representatives for Karisma Hotels & Resorts. “This shows that travel is coming back gradually but steadily and with even higher demand, which is incredibly important for our Mexico and Caribbean destinations that rely so heavily on tourism.”
In anticipation of the return to travel, Karisma has launched a comprehensive well-being program named Karisma Peace of Mind™ to ensure guest safety and an unmatched level of service. The program features new health protocols, updated guidelines and industry-leading best practices, including alignment with Delos Well Living’s International WELL Building Institute and Well Living Lab, in conjunction with the Mayo Clinic, with endorsements by Deepak Chopra. The program will be implemented across all Karisma properties, setting a new standard for the hospitality industry. For example, the company is combining holistic well-being options including sound meditations and breathing exercises with 100+ new hygiene and sanitation initiatives, and long-time certifications from the leading independent safety and sustainable organizations: Check Safety First/Cristal International Standards and EarthCheck.
“We hope to give our guests an authentic, upscale setting to restore and relax where they can be free of all worry,” said Linehan. “We’ve worked with world-renowned organizations to institute a comprehensive program that goes beyond cleanliness protocols to deliver a true sense of safety and relaxation for our guests.”
