“With the unveiling of the Diamond Program, representing our highest-achieving GI Vacation Consultants, we have seen the number of agents in this category double since December 2009, along with the growth of our GI Wedding Consultant program,” says Chomat. “We are constantly bolstering the GIVC Program so agents can expect to see ongoing, new initiatives intended to generate leads and drive bookings in the coming months.”
All of Karisma’s resorts offer the famous Gourmet-Inclusive program—and impressive and generous as it is, it might not be what true gourmand clients look for—although El Dorado Royale has taken it a step further with fresh produce from its own greenhouse. This 70,000-sq.-ft. area provides a wide variety of organic herbs and vegetables—cucumbers, tomatoes, chilies, bell peppers and more—to its home resort and sister properties. El Dorado Royale provides guided tours of the greenhouse.
El Dorado Spa Resorts & Hotels by Karisma is offering up to 15 percent off through The Faster, The Better promotion, for travel Dec. 23-April 11, 2011 (holidays excluded) for stays booked by Oct. 31. Rates at El Dorado Royale start at $177 pp, per night, inclusive of the Gourmet Inclusive Experience, which comes with 24-hour room service and full-service concierge.
