Karisma introduces beachfront resort

El Dorado Spa Resorts & Hotels welcomes El Dorado Maroma, A Beachfront Resort by Karisma, the newest hotel to join Karisma’s upscale collection of six Gourmet-Inclusives in the Riviera Maya.
El Dorado Maroma sits on the famed Maroma Beach, which was voted one of “The World’s Best Beaches” by The Travel Channel. With a prime beachfront location and marina, El Dorado Maroma provides couples and families (with children over 16 years old) with seaside adventures by day and luxury by night. Guests can experience upscale dining at three restaurants, imbibe cocktails at three signature bars and order room service 24 hours a day.

With just 72 suites, El Dorado Maroma is Karisma’s most intimate boutique property. Upon arrival, guests are whisked off to one of three suite categories, including the Infinity Pool Casita Suites, where guests can step from their upper-story terrace and into a private pool that seemingly extends to the horizon, or stargaze from their Aguas del Amor, an open-air shower. El Dorado Maroma’s fusion of modern and traditional design is apparent in every beachfront suite: from the sleek contemporary furniture and marble floors to the linen-framed, four-poster beds. Each suite features an oversized terrace with unobstructed views of the Caribbean, as well as a satellite flat-screen TV, DVD and CD player and complimentary mini-bar stocked with premium liquor, beverages and snacks. Suites range from $213 - $387 per person, per night.


Each of the hotel’s gourmet restaurants offer tableside interaction with chefs who are as flexible as they are creative. At Sabores, the chefs offer a daily changing menu that incorporates the freshest lobster. Guests can channel their inner sea dog on a local fishing excursion, then watch as a chef transforms their catch-of-the-day into a five-star dinner. The Asian-inspired Kiyoko invites guests to explore the mystical fusion of the sky and the sea with creative dishes like chicken teppanyaki. From fresh fish carpaccio to fruitti di mare, couples dining at Mio enjoy authentic Italian delicacies in a romantic setting.



Offering more than just “good food,” El Dorado Maroma’s Gourmet-Inclusive philosophy provides guests with top-of-the-line amenities and service with the convenience of cash-free transactions. Imagine beach beds with retractable curtains for privacy and gourmet bites prepared fresh and served by the hotel’s beach butlers. Every want and need is anticipated and met by El Dorado Maroma’s service-focused concierge team, who provide nightly turndown service and arrange excursions to the nearby ruins, cenotes and eco-preserves.


El Dorado Maroma is also a premiere location for destination weddings, featuring its own beachfront chapel and exclusive justice of the peace. The chapel’s quaint white frame and stained glass windows amid the lush tropical gardens provide a traditional yet exotic backdrop. Love the ocean? El Dorado Maroma’s wedding coordinator will arrange a sunset ceremony on the edge of the Marina Maroma or on the beach.


To celebrate the hotel’s grand opening, El Dorado Maroma, A Beachfront Resort by Karisma is offering an introductory ‘Life’s a Beach’ promotion: stay at the hotel between Nov. 26 and Dec. 22, 2007, and receive a 25% discount.
