The Margaritaville hotel brand and luxury hotel collection Karisma Hotels & Resorts are launching the Margaritaville Island Reserve by Karisma brand, which the companies are calling "an inclusive resort experience."  

The new brand will comprise upscale resorts built in beachfront destinations throughout Mexico and the Caribbean. 
Margaritaville Island Reserve by Karisma will be Margaritaville’s first collection of inclusive luxury resorts. The companies indicated the resort concept would combine Karisma’s food and beverage programming with Margaritaville’s laid-back vibe and "iconic design elements."

The debut inclusive resort, Margaritaville Island Reserve Riviera Cancun by Karisma, will open by year's end and is expected to be the first of several.
