Grand Opening Celebration

Karisma Hotels & Resorts celebrated the official opening of the newest laid-back luxury addition to the Margaritaville Island Reserve brand, Margaritaville Island Reserve Cap Cana, which opened its doors November 2021.

Joined by top company executives and Dominican Republic elected officials, the event featured an opening speech by President Luis Abinader, followed by a ribbon-cutting ceremony, live entertainment, signature cocktails, and dining experiences.

The five-star resort is located in one of the most sought-after stretches of beach in the Dominican Republic and is the first purpose-built location under the Island Reserve brand, which combines Karisma Hotels & Resorts’ world-class, all-inclusive amenities with Margaritaville’s signature sense of lighthearted fun and escapism.

The resort has 228 suites and 40 ultra-luxe villas plus an expansive Entertainment Village that serves as the main hub of the property with live daily performances on two stages, 10 food & beverage venues, a world-class St. Somewhere Spa, and much more.

On hand for the grand opening were Luis Abinader, President of the Dominican Republic; Rafael Feliz Germán, Chief Executive Officer of Karisma Hotels & Resorts; Jorge Feliz Germán, President of Karisma Hotels and Resorts Dominican Republic; David Collado, Minister of Tourism; Samuel Pereyra, Administrator of Banreservas.
