Karisma Hotels & Resorts, the award-winning collection of properties spanning Latin America, the Caribbean, and Mexico, and Margaritaville, the global lifestyle brand synonymous with fun and escapism, are excited to ‘cheers’ to the first annual Oktoberfest in Paradise. The nearly two-month-long, island version of the iconic autumnal event is being held at the all-inclusive Margaritaville® Island Reserve Cap Cana resort this fall, as announced today on International Beer Day.  

“We’re excited to introduce this flip-flop-friendly, tropical twist on the traditional Oktoberfest experience, set on a world-famous stretch of shoreline in the Caribbean at a resort that is the definition of laidback luxury,” said Frank Maduro, President of Premier Worldwide Marketing. “Come for the brews and stay for the beach vibes. This is the ultimate carefree – and beer-centric – island escape.” 

The first seasonal event includes exciting and exclusive offerings like a floating beer bar, Oktoberfest-inspired activations – like a “Make Your Own Lebkuchenherzen” gingerbread and pretzel decorating activity, along with Stein-holding and yodeling contests – and a varied lineup of live entertainment, from traditional German dancers to tropical rock and 80’s jam bands. Adding to the excitement, the festivities will also include pub crawl pop-ups, limited edition lagers, and brewery tours at LandShark Brewery & Grill, the first brewery inside of an all-inclusive resort in the Caribbean. In addition to the resort’s usual gourmet inclusive food & beverage offerings, brew-inspired food activations and special beer pairing menu items will also be available. At St. Somewhere Spa, unique beer-infused treatments will be on the menu exclusively during the Oktoberfest celebrations.

This year’s inaugural Oktoberfest in Paradise celebrations will take place September 15, 2022, through October 29, 2022, with savings of up to 40 percent and room rates beginning at $231 per person per night. Bookings are open with Island Reserve Inclusive rates covering all accommodations with tax, premium food & beverage offerings, 24-hour room service, Island Ambassador personal concierge service, and more.

The host of the island-inspired Oktoberfest is the newest Margaritaville Island Reserve resort on Playa Juanillo in Cap Cana – a stunning seaside setting to raise a pint in paradise. Located just 15 minutes from the Punta Cana International Airport, the laidback resort offers 228 suites and 40 ultra-luxe villas, plus an expansive Entertainment Village that serves as the main entertainment hub of the property with live performances on two stages, a world-class St. Somewhere Spa, 10 food & beverage venues, and much more. The “no worries” experience is complete with an incomparable level of service from the resort’s local Island Ambassadors who cater to guests’ every need, as well as rooms outfitted with modern conveniences such as customized in-room refreshment centers with goodies from Joe Merchant and access to Karisma’s Island Reserve Inclusive® Experience and 24-hour in-room dining.
