Karisma Looking To Open New Nickelodeon Hotels & Resorts Properties In Barbados and St. Lucia

Speaking about Karisma expanding its Margaritaville brand, Chomat told TravelPulse “There’s serious thought about expanding to St. Lucia and Barbados,” said Chomat. “Karisma Hotels & Resorts is in discussions to expand Margaritaville into these islands over the next few years.”

Chomat also said travelers could expect new Nickelodeon Hotels & Resorts properties throughout the Caribbean as well. The first Nickelodeon Hotels & Resorts property debuted in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic in 2016.

“Karisma is scouting Barbados and St. Lucia, along with other major island destinations, for Margaritaville, An All-Inclusive Experience, by Karisma, as well as Nickelodeon Hotels & Resorts,” says Chomat. “We’re looking at island destinations throughout the Caribbean, including Antigua, the Bahamas, and Grenada, evaluating airlift and infrastructure, among other variables.”

In Mexico, the company is opening the El Cielo Winery & Resort in Valle De Guadalupe, Baja California this summer. In 2019, the company is spotlighting the Riviera Maya once again with the opening of Nickelodeon Hotels & Resorts Riviera Maya and Margaritaville, an All-Inclusive Experience, by Karisma.

“In addition to our continued expansion in Riviera Maya, Karisma is looking at Baja [California], Vallarta and Huatulco in Mexico,” said Chomat. “Later this summer, we will also introduce El Cielo Winery & Resort in Mexico’s Valle de Guadalupe, the new Napa Valley.”

Karisma first expanded to the Caribbean in late 2013 when it had a soft opening for its first Jamaica resort, Azul Sensatori Jamaica. Karisma then expanded to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic in 2016 in the form of its popular family brand Nickelodeon Hotels & Resorts.

“The smaller islands of the Caribbean are a fast growing portion of our business right now, particularly in St. Lucia, so I think those destinations are a perfect fit,” added Anthony Tucker, vice president and general manager at the All Inclusive Outlet in Georgetown, Kentucky.
