The new addition to Karisma’s El Dorado Seaside Suites will open for business winter 2015 after a lengthy renovation project. Originally, it was slated to open Nov. 1 but the opening date has been delayed to sometime in winter 2015 (guesses are sometime in December). In actuality, this new addition will become the new El Dorado Seaside Suites while the older property will now be referred to as Sensimar Seaside Suites and Spa. The “old” El Dorado Seaside Suite section appears to be under contract with Tui (a German-based travel company) which sells packages mostly to European clients (Thomson is a big seller of Tui-contracted properties). Karisma already has a Sensimar section at El Dorado Royale and all guests are allowed to use the Tui facilities in contracted sections. While the “old” EDSS rooms are slated for the European market, the new EDSS resort is open to everyone. All guests were originally supposed to receive a complimentary upgrade to the new section, but since the opening has been delayed, it is unclear at this time whether the upgrade will be taking place once the new EDSS opens and how long it will last.
When booking El Dorado Seaside Suites, Karisma boasts access to 192 suites, 10 restaurants, 10 bars, 5 pools, and access to one of the largest spas in the Riviera Maya. Check out a prior post for pictures/artists renderings by clicking on this link.
