Nickelodeon Hotels & Resorts Punta Cana Announces Nov. 5 Reopening
MIAMI (Oct. 23, 2020) – Nickelodeon Hotels & Resorts Punta Cana, the world’s first ever World-Class Gourmet Inclusive® Nickelodeon property, will reopen on Nov. 5. The acclaimed Karisma Hotels & Resorts resort in the Dominican Republic features 208 oversized suites in seven styles designed to cater to a variety of tastes, including prized Swim-Up Suites, which are available for just a $1 upgrade if booked by Oct. 31 for travel by March 27, 2021.
“Since opening in 2016, Nickelodeon Hotels & Resorts Punta Cana has exceeded all expectations, and we look forward to continued success together with our partners at Karisma,” said Gerald Raines, senior vice president of ViacomCBS. “There is no other international hotel (at least until the opening of our second resort in Riviera Maya in 2021) where guests can immerse themselves in the fun and frivolous Nick lifestyle with personal SpongeBob SquarePants and Dora the Explorer interactions, full access to Aqua Nick, Club Nick and even enjoy the opportunities of getting slimed and sleeping in the Pineapple Villa, inspired by SpongeBob SquarePants' home in Bikini Bottom.”
Following months of careful consideration and thoughtful updates after closing on March 20, Nickelodeon Hotels & Resorts Punta Cana is set to reopen its doors with Karisma Peace of Mind™, Karisma Hotels & Resorts’ comprehensive well-being program that ensures guest safety and an unmatched level of service. The program features new health protocols, updated guidelines and industry-leading best practices, including alignment with Delos Well Living’s International WELL Building Institute and Well Living Lab, in conjunction with the Mayo Clinic and with endorsements by Deepak Chopra.
“We know many families are hoping to escape their homes this holiday season and we hope they will come visit us where everything is taken care of,” said Jorge L. Feliz German, president of Karisma Hotels & Resorts for the Dominican Republic. “Plus, with our record-breaking Cyber Month deals launching Nov. 13, it’s the perfect time to plan a merry, affordable getaway with loved ones.”
Holidays this year will be extra special at Nickelodeon Hotels & Resorts Punta Cana with daily whimsical, family-friendly activities for kids and parents alike, including:
- Christmas: In December, festive, Instagrammable moments abound with holiday themed arts and crafts and character interactions with special holiday touches. In true Nickelodeon fashion, guests can spend Christmas Day participating in exclusive activities such as making holiday souvenirs at Club Nick, taking Christmas photos with their favorite characters in festive outfits, and enjoying entertainment and shows.
- New Year’s Eve/Day: Guests will bid goodbye to 2020 and embrace the fresh start of 2021 at the resort’s New Year’s Eve Celebration, which will feature live music to dance any stress away with the Nickelodeon family.
