Welcome to the Connoisseur Collection by Karisma. An exclusive world where pampering and prestige blend together remarkably, and you are presented with an extraordinary display of personalized attention. Where life exists at your own pace, on your terms. And your vacation is perfectly planned prior to your arrival, yet uniquely unscripted while you are here. For this is the Connoisseur Experience, one that travels beyond the ordinary - and meets the highest of standards. Yours.
It begins prior to your arrival. When your dedicated concierge will reach out to ensure your vacation will be customized to your individual tastes, preferences and expectations. Your in-suite bar, curated with your favourite beverages. Your preferred tee-time reserved in advance. Every detail, every moment, expertly crafted with anticipation. So when you do arrive and are privately escorted from the airport to your suite, bungalow or villa for check-in, you enjoy consummate hospitality. On property, you will be greeted with a bottle of champagne or wine for adults and fruit smoothies or shakes for the children. You will also be provided a personal cell phone to communicate with your butler throughout your stay, and a direct line to your concierge to facilitate your every need and want.
Now that your Connoisseur Experience has commenced, it is time to savour the indulgences that have been thoughtfully considered for your in-room comfort. No detail was left out in the sumptuous surroundings of your accommodations. Awaken to the aroma of an espresso and the sweet delights of a seasonal fruit basket. Enjoy a leisurely afternoon as you sip premium coffees and teas. Relax in personalized bathrobes with an exquisite dessert tray at turndown service. Of course, your fully stocked, premium bar is refreshed daily and always available at your discretion.
The Connoisseur Experience is intended to ignite the senses, soothe the soul and excite the mind with possibilities. A private round of golf overlooking turquoise waters. A romantic, moonlit dinner on a secluded beach - or one crafted by your own in-room chef. Perhaps a night dive on a private boat or a breathtaking hot air balloon excursion? Whatever you desire, your custom experience awaits, and Karisma's Concierge Program* is available to facilitate it all. *Additional fees apply.
Everytime you visit, you will revel in exclusive privileges available only for our Connoisseurs. Enjoy preferred guest rates on all spa services, special events and our premium wine list.
