Welcome to Margaritaville Island Reserve Riviera Maya, where the sounds of Jimmy Buffett and the taste of salty margaritas combine to create the ultimate adults-only escape.
The newest in the Margaritaville Island Reserve collection, Riviera Maya opened its doors in JUN ready to offer guests an unforgettable vacation experience filled with luxury, coastal chic accommodations, mouthwatering dining options, a one-of-a-kind brewery, endless entertainment, and stunning wedding and event venues…to name a few.
“The phrase ‘third time’s the charm’ fits perfectly for this hotel,” said Marilyn Cairo, VP of Sales for Karisma Hotels & Resorts. “We took the fans that we’ve been building over the last three years with our travel agent partners, and with our members, and there was such anticipation for this one. For only being a month in, the feedback we’ve gotten from the clients is incredible so far.”
Let’s start with the accommodations. With 355 suites to choose from, Margaritaville Island Reserve Riviera Maya provides a range of options that will make you feel right at home in a coastal paradise.
Each suite features comfortable amenities and coastal-inspired decor, and all of them open up to a private balcony or terrace with views of the ocean or the resort’s pools and gardens. Whether guets opt for a King or Queen Paradise Room to soak up breathtaking sea views or including the top-of-the-line Coral Reefer Signature Suite, they will be living ‘high on the hog’ during their stay.
When it’s time to dine, the resort has them covered with its five spectacular restaurants.
Guests can enjoy al fresco dining on the expansive terrace overlooking the pool, or venture into brand staples like Frank & Lola’s or JWB Steakhouse for elevated date nights and a classic steakhouse experience with a contemporary twist.
But that’s not all. Margaritaville Island Reserve Riviera Maya also introduces two new concepts: Far Side Of The World, an exclusive culinary experience with Pacific Rim cuisine and unique culinary selections inspired by faraway places, and the Salted Rim Margarita Bar & Lounge, where they can revel in Caribbean elegance while sipping on adventurous tequila and mezcal creations.
“The resort has a vibrant lobby bar called The Salted Rim, where our talented mixologists put on a show and create delicious cocktails,” said Cairo.
Now, let’s talk about the real highlight of the resort—the first LandShark Brewery in Mexico.
This oceanfront brewery, located within the Island Reserve collection, serves up smokehouse classics and signature LandShark lagers brewed right on-site. With plenty of outdoor seating and two terraces overlooking the calm Caribbean waters, it’s the perfect spot where guests can meet the brewmaster, enjoy a beer sampler tray or beer-matching menu, and groove to live music and performances.
It’s a beer lover’s paradise in the heart of Margaritaville, said Cairo.
“If you want to grab a beer with some friends you just met right before dinner, and maybe nibble on some fish tacos, you can do that at LandShark,” she said.
Plus, at Margaritaville Island Reserve Riviera Maya, the fun never stops. From poolside performances by local bands to DJ-driven pool parties, mixology classes, and dance lessons, there’s always something exciting happening. Guests can challenge their friends to a game of trivia, pickleball, or cornhole, or savour the flavours of tequila during a tasting session.
“We’ve introduced exciting new activities like pickleball in the dark, a neon-filled experience that adds a fun twist to this popular game,” said Cairo.
And when it’s time to relax, the St. Somewhere Spa awaits. This 10,000 sq. ft. oasis offers a range of tropically inspired spa services designed to awaken guests’ senses and promote relaxation. From invigorating body scrubs to luxurious pedicures, they will find bliss at every turn.
For travellers dreaming of a picture-perfect wedding or a memorable event, Margaritaville Island Reserve Riviera Maya has them covered.
Lovers can say “I do” with their toes in the sand at one of the resort’s stunning venues. From the largest sky wedding terrace in the region to Island Overwater Wedding Packages where guests can exchange vows on a transparent platform over the pool, the resort provides the perfect backdrop for their special day.
And with ballrooms boasting unobstructed views of the Mexican-Caribbean Sea, they can host a grand event that will leave their guests in awe.
Cairo said at Margaritaville Island Reserve Riviera Maya, guests really will be living life like a permanent vacation, just like Jimmy Buffett sings about.
