The Inside Track with John Spence

After a few weeks hiatus during which he’s been extremely busy travelling, Karma Group Chairman John Spence returns with exciting news and updates from across the Karma universe. In Margaret River, work will soon commence on a brand new property complete with Karma winery – this is one of our favourite destinations in Australia so we’re excited to bring this new offering online. More immediately, John Spence was recently in Carcassonne where he and other Karma Group senior management celebrated the official opening of Karma Château de Samary – one of the destinations in our on-going Karma Curated Experience Series after our sold-out Tuscan Weekend. He also previews Karma Karnak – our Nile cruise ship that will launch in October after some significant upgrades. News too for Karma Group Owners, with plans for a series of intimate parties round the world, while John also has his eyes on Sri Lanka as a great destination in the future, despite its current woes. On the philanthropy and arts side of things, there’s a new partnership with Cirque du Soleil to support water accessibility around the world, while Karma Group is also supporting a high profile literary festival and connecting with a certain legendary long distance runner with an incredible back story…

  3. Hi John,
    Really pleased to receive this update. As an Aussie I’m particularly interested in your plans for Australia. Great to hear that the Margaret River resort is progressing on a firm footing, however members in the eastern states are desperate to have a resort there – my personal preference being in North Queensland.
    If you do come to Australia it would be great to meet you. How about a meeting in each capital city?
    Looking forward to hear more positive news.

    1. Hi Mr Kelly, we hope you like what you’ve seen so far in the video’s sneak peek! Thank you for the suggestion of North Queensland, it is well noted. Plus, a fantastic idea for the capital city meet-ups; we are sure John Spence will plan something unmissable!

  4. I am not a Karma member but always like watching John’s reports .
    The way he has kept in contact with Karma members and others during the pandemic is a credit to him .
    Hope to stay at one of the karma resorts soon .

  8. Hello
    Nice to hear from Mr. Spence. Would like to share some views with Karma that we r not having property in north east region in India and there r very less properties in India itself as compared to club Mahindra. Would request Mr. John Spence to open up some properties in India also. Also there r no properties in north India which is very famous and favourite tourist destination, having properties in Himachal Pradesh Jammu n kashmir would be very good. Hope to see Karma at these destinations soon.

  9. We expect resorts in Jammu Kashmir and leh in north india
    It is most favorable location in india
