Sandals Resorts in Mexico

Posted By : Chris Martin/ 351 0

Sandals Resorts International will officially be expanding to Mexico. The luxury all-inclusive resort brand will be expanding out of the Caribbean for the first time in the form of a Sandals resort in the Riviera Maya. The resort, which will be a new build, will be located in Playa del Carmen, Mexico.

There is also heavy speculation that Sandals will follow that development up with a Beaches Resort in Cancun although this have not been confirmed.

It is also possible that popular tour operator Island Routes Caribbean Adventures will be expanding its operations to Cancun as well.

El Dorado Royale, A Spa Resort, by Karisma Selected as Official Host Hotel of the 2013 Cancun-Riviera Maya Wine & Food Festival
Gourmet Inclusive Resort to Host Festival’s 30+ World Renowned Chefs, Celebrity Chef Cooking Demonstrations, and Wine Tasting Events
El Dorado Spa Resorts & Hotels and Azul Hotels by Karisma, Mexico’s premier, Gourmet Inclusive beachfront resorts in the Riviera Maya, today announced that El Dorado Royale, A Spa Resort, by Karisma has been selected as official host hotel of the 2013 Cancun-Riviera Maya Wine & Food Festival (CRMWFF). Recognized by the CRMWFF for its superior culinary commitment, El Dorado Royale will host celebrity chefs, notables and VIPs as well as the Celebrity Chef Cooking Demonstrations and a series of wine tastings during the event, taking place March 14-17, 2013.
“We are thrilled to name El Dorado Royale host hotel of next year’s Cancun-Riviera Maya Wine & Food Festival,” said David Amar, founder of the Cancun-Riviera Maya Wine & Food Festival.  “The resort, which affords guests the best in food and service as a part of its Gourmet Inclusive vacations, aligns perfectly with our commitment to provide an unforgettable gastronomic experience.  Not only does El Dorado Royale offer gourmet a la carte meals, premium wine selections, sommeliers at every restaurant, chef’s tables and 24 hour service, it is also home to the destination’s largest Greenhouse, a 100,000 square-foot facility that impresses locals, discerning gourmands, and world-class chefs alike.”
The 2013 Cancun-Riviera Maya Wine & Food Festival will build off last year’s wonderfully successful fete, which showcased 30 of the best chefs in the Americas and attracted more than 3,000 guests.  As a part of the 2012 event, Azul Sensatori Hotel – a sister property of El Dorado Royale – hosted VIPs and top sponsors at Le Chique for a one-of-a-kind 12-course “Author’s Dinner.”  Created by Chef Jonatan Gomez Luna, one of Ferran Adrià’s disciples who develops his own creative cuisine using local ingredients, the “Author’s Dinner” beautifully exemplifies the elevated experience offered with any Gourmet Inclusive vacation.
A sampling of events at this year’s Festival will include: Networking Lunch, Star Chefs Panel: The Future of Cuisine, Star Chefs the Americas Tribute Dinner, A Taste of Europe: Gala Dinner Tribute to Massimo Bottura, Celebrity Chef Yacht Cruise and exclusive lunch cooked for 50 VIPs by Chef Massimo Bottura, the American Express Gourmet Tasting Village to delight guest’s palate with signature dishes from the 20 best restaurants of Cancun & Riviera Maya plus gourmet foods, wines, spirits, family fun cooking classes and entertainment, and a Closing Fiesta celebrating Mexico’s culinary contributions to the world.
Jeroen Hanlo, vice president of food & beverage for El Dorado Spa Resorts & Hotels and Azul Hotels by Karisma, brought to life the renowned Gourmet Inclusive concept and is credited with incorporating this world-class event into the overall culinary vision at El Dorado Royale. 
Hanlo said, “This is what the Gourmet Inclusive concept is all about: having the finest gastronomic experiences brought to you by the leaders of the world of food and wine.  Our culinary team is thrilled to be part of these world-class experiences, which you can taste even after the event throughout our properties.”
El Dorado Royale, as host hotel, will present the hugely popular wine tasting events, taking place four times daily on Thursday, March 14 and Friday, March 15.  Catering to an affluent audience of aficionados, each seminar will spotlight a notable wine and/or spirits label and offer insights from key influencers.  On the following days, El Dorado Royale will turn its focus to cuisine, hosting the Celebrity Chef Cooking Demonstrations, a series of nine fan-favorite events featuring one to four chefs at a time, which will include exciting team competitions with 20 star chefs such as Avant-Garde Chef Massimo Bottura.
“We are delighted to be chosen as host hotel of the Cancun-Riviera Maya Wine & Food Festival,” said Mandy Chomat, vice president of sales & marketing for Premier Worldwide Marketing, the worldwide representative of El Dorado Spa Resorts & Hotels and Azul Hotels.  “The Gourmet Inclusive experience at El Dorado Royale will be an ideal complement to this gourmet extravaganza.  We invite discerning travelers, chefs, sommeliers, and industry influencers to celebrate with us in March and in the months leading up to this spectacular event when we present one-of-a-kind culinary programs in anticipation of the Festival.”
Located beachfront in the Riviera Maya, Mexico, El Dorado Royale, A Spa Resort by Karisma, is an adults-only Gourmet Inclusive property offering exceptional food and service.  El Dorado Royale features seven Gourmet Inclusive restaurants, including a “culinary theater” where dishes are prepared in one of five open kitchens.  The resort also boasts 15 bars and lounges serving premium alcoholic beverages, including bar specializing in martinis, bars with swings, beach bars, and nine swim-up bars.
 
El Dorado Royale is home to a 100,000-square-feet Greenhouse, the Riviera Maya’s only facility of this magnitude as well.  A part of its overall commitment to sustainability, the Greenhouse, which celebrated its first harvest in August 2009, produces 120 tons of crops and provides fresh produce to its collection of eight sister properties within the El Dorado Spa Resorts & Hotels and Azul Hotels by Karisma collections.  What’s more, the Greenhouse supplies herbs and vegetables to three high-profile neighboring resorts that consider its produce the freshest in the region.  Now in its sixth harvest, the greenhouse grows a variety of hydroponic vegetables and herbs, including cucumbers, bell peppers, chilies, basil, and mint.  Guests are invited to taste the Greenhouse’s fresh vegetables and herbs and participate in interactive tours and cooking seminars.
With the Gourmet Inclusive experience, El Dorado Royale offers indulgent pampering with unparalleled personal services such as champagne and smoothie check-ins, full-service concierge, 24-hour room service, world-class chefs, gourmet cuisine served a la carte and sommeliers who suggest perfect pairings from private label wine sections.
