Nickelodeon's First Caribbean Resort Breaks Ground in Punta Cana

Nickelodeon is getting into the Caribbean tourism game, and now Viacom's popular children's brand has broken ground on its first resort project.

The $92 million Nickelodeon Punta Cana broke ground this week, with completion slated for the summer of 2016.

The Karisma Hotels and Resorts project is expected to create around 1,200 direct jobs upon completion.

Dominican Republic President Danilo Medina was on hand to turn the first stone.

The 204-room, five-star resort will target family travelers.

Karisma Breaks Ground on Punta Cana Nickelodeon Resort

Putting shovel to dirt, Dominican Republic President Danilo Medina brought the Nickelodeon Punta Cana one step closer to reality during a glamorous groundbreaking ceremony that celebrated the ambitious partnership between Karisma Hotels & Resorts and Viacom International Media Networks, of which Nickelodeon is a unit.

“We believe strongly in the new Nickelodeon brand, and we're looking to develop five hotels in the next 10 years,” said Rafael Feliz, Jr., senior brand corporate manager for Karisma, adding that the company is currently assessing locations in Mexico's Riviera Maya locations for a second property.

For the time being, Karisma has plenty on its plate with the construction of the Punta Cana property, which is scheduled to open next June and will share its enviable beachfront setting with a Sensatori resort slated to debut in May.

The project is nothing if not ambitious. The Nickelodeon resort will feature 204 suites, the Nick Village, the Nick Waterpark, a sports center, beachside infinity pool and myriad restaurants and lounges.

The Nick Village, comprising several building in a plaza-style design, will serve as the site where kids can interact with such Nickelodeon characters as Dora the Explorer, SpongeBob SquarePants and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. “It will be completely Nickelodeon themed,” said Feliz. In addition to a kid's club, the Nick Village will house what's being referred to as Studio Nick. “That's where we'll have shows and events – like private slimings and all that fun stuff,” said Feliz.

The Nick Waterpark will feature waterslides, pools and an upscale snack bar, while the sports center will boast tennis courts and soccer and basketball courts.

Nosh, a restaurant set close to the beach, will feature character breakfasts and Nickelodeon-themed events throughout the day.

Nickelodeon and Sensatori, which is being sold exclusively through the European tour operator TUI, will share what Feliz referred to as a Gourmet Village with seven restaurants and several bars. Adults staying at Nickelodeon will be able to take advantage of all Sensatori's facilities, including its pools, bar and restaurants.

Feliz stressed that both properties will incorporate Karisma's signature Gourmet Inclusive concept, with its emphasis on high-quality cuisine and one-of-a-kind a la carte dining experiences. “We're focusing on making sure the experience is very luxurious,” he said.

A focus on luxury will also be evidenced in Nickelodeon's accommodations, which will feature an abundance of swim-up suites. “All accommodations on the first floor will have swim-up suites,” Feliz said.

And, in a bow to SpongeBob, the resort's signature suite will be dubbed the Pineapple Villa – which, according to Feliz, will resemble just that: a pineapple.

In the end, Feliz believes it was a propitious move to debut the Nickelodeon brand in the Dominican Republic, the destination where Karisma was born. “We believe demand is going to be very strong,” he said. “Nickelodeon will be a unique product in a world-class destination.”

The Art of Dining Out

As a Gourmet Inclusive® property, the Nickelodeon Hotels & Resorts Punta Cana will be carefully catered to guests who value quality. Dining will be an art and a pleasure at 10 Gourmet Inclusive® restaurants, two Gourmet Corners, four bars and lounges, and the Doppio Coffee Shop, which will offer worldly cuisine and feature the freshest and finest ingredients. Dining options will range from kid friendly to elegant. Nickelodeon Hotels & Resorts Punta Cana will also include an array of innovative and fun food and beverage options at themed restaurants that reflect the brand with unexpected colors, imaginative food samples, Slime Smoothies, and characters realized through tropical fruits and vegetables.

Relax and Rejuvenate

Adventures can be balanced with relaxation at the resort thanks to Vassa Spa’s herbal steam room, dry sauna, chromo therapy showers, bubble beds, whirlpool, and arctic and warm water pools. Guests will be able to escape into one of five beautifully-appointed treatment suites, couple’s suite, luxurious bridal suite, or one of five “al fresco” outdoor treatment areas for those craving a little sand with their spa. Vassa Spa’s signature “perfectly pink” treatment program will be available for young visitors.

New: Nickelodeon Resort Punta Cana

It was announced late last month that Karisma Hotels and Resorts along with Viacom will be opening a Nickelodeon-themed resort in Punta Cana in late 2016 and is currently simply named "Nickelodeon Punta Cana". This is the first all-inclusive resort of it's kind for the brand, and the article states that there are plans to open a second in Mexico as well.

I have not seen any construction or exact location details. If it is a new build, my guess is that it would be between Uvero Alto and Arena Gorda, as anything south of there to the airport is quite populated already.
