A day at Nickelodeon Hotels & Resorts Punta Cana begins with a dance party.
Slime parties are currently all the rage, but they take on an entirely new meaning at the Nickelodeon Hotels & Resorts Punta Cana by Karisma, a five-star, luxury, all-inclusive resort in Punta Cana that is perfect for families and young children. The beautiful beachfront resort provides picture-perfect views and never-ending Nickelodeon fun!
It will soon be joined by Mexico’s first Nickelodeon Hotel & Resort which will open in Spring/Summer 2019. Nickelodeon Hotels & Resorts Riviera Maya marks the second within the luxurious collection of five-star experiential resorts, following the award-winning Nickelodeon Hotels & Resorts Punta Cana.
The Gourmet Inclusive Experience is unique to Karisma resorts, offering a high-end luxury all-inclusive experience, so families do not have to sacrifice comfort, convenience or satisfaction while travelling with young kids. Concierge level service with special care and attention is paid to all families’ needs, including dietary and special needs concerns, and a wide variety of baby and toddler amenities and services so that families can truly enjoy their vacation without worry.
Upon check-in, guests are welcomed with a signature Slime Smoothie for the kids to enjoy, and adults can choose from a glass of sparkling wine or a Slime beverage. We had both and have to admit that the Slime smoothies were really good! The Nick Concierge staff is available to take care of all your needs and fulfil your requests during your stay, with a concierge butler located at every building.
The resort includes 208 spacious suites with extra large balconies or swim out suites, free-standing bathtubs and choices of 1 bedroom king bed suites or 2 double bed suites. The decor of the rooms is modern and chic, with the signature Nickelodeon colours in a warm and inviting manner.
With ample space in the rooms and spacious balconies to enjoy your room views or swim out suites, there is plenty of room for everyone in the family to relax in comfort. Baby and toddler amenities can be provided upon request to provide you with the conveniences of a home away from home including baby monitors, baby sterilisers and warmers, crib, change table and stroller for your use.
If you can swing it, you can choose to stay in the most fun villa in all of the seas! The Pineapple Villa belonging to SpongeBob SquarePants is the only place in the Caribbean where you can sleep in a pineapple and the only one of its kind in the world. The 1500 square foot, two bedrooms, three bathrooms, two level suite immerses you into the world of SpongeBob SquarePants with your very own private butler to take care of your every need.
Aside from the Pineapple Villa, the rest of the property is contemporary, upscale, modern and chic. You walk through the grounds, and the scenery is lush and beautiful. Heading to the Gourmet All Inclusive Village brings you to unique restaurant experiences including an interstellar space experience at SpaceWalker, artisan burgers at BRGRS.PH, Far East Asian at Wok Wok, adult only elegant dining at Kitchen 23, and a piano bar at Grapes and Keys.
But the real fun and heart of the resort is Nickelodeon Place, the entertainment centre and hub of all things Nickelodeon. The Just Kiddin’ Kids Club provides childcare for kids ages 4-12 and has both structured and free play options to keep kids busy and entertained.
Aqua Nick is the place to be for all things water and slime-related! The waterpark includes waterslides, a lazy river, toddler pool and splash area as well as the location for their ever popular slime parties.
Slime parties are held twice a day – one in the morning and one in the afternoon. Random rooms are drawn, and families are chosen for slime-ing! If your 1980’s childhood dream of getting slimed by green goo (think, “You Can’t Do That on Television”) is on your bucket list of things you NEED to experience, then you can make arrangements (additional fee required) for a private sliming to ensure you get your slime!
If you miss the chance to do your own sliming, they do mass slimings in the pool as well. Everyone gathers in the pool under the signature Nickelodeon blimp at the posted time and as the bucket underneath gets filled, slime pours out and everyone gets slimed!
Also at Nick Place is Character Central, where all your favourite Nickelodeon characters reside and are available for scheduled photo opportunities. The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Dora the Explorer, SpongeBob Square Pants, and Patrick are just a few of your favourite Nickelodeon characters you can meet. Private character meets are available for special celebrations or for families who prefer an individual experience.
And while it is all about the high energy fun at Nickelodeon Punta Cana, there is also ample time to relax and enjoy the beautiful serenity of the Dominican beaches. The kid-friendly and lively energy family-friendly activities are all located at Nick Place, just across the way from the central resort area, so those who are looking for some quiet relaxation time will have plenty of opportunities take it easy away from the kids if they choose.
Nickelodeon Punta Cana is the perfect resort for multi-generational families as there is something for everyone to enjoy. Such care and detail is included for families with young kids and/or special needs makes travelling a breeze. Karisma is known for its Gourmet Inclusive experience where the attention to food is perfect for foodies and those with dietary restrictions and allergies.
The Nickelodeon Hotels and Resort Punta Cana is a highly recommended resort destination for families looking for high end and high energy fun. With Karisma Resorts’ distinct and signature touches to their service and offerings, the Nickelodeon Punta Cana does not disappoint! It is not a large property to it tends to book up quickly, especially for peak seasons for families. If you want to consider Punta Cana for your next vacation, make sure you take a look at the Nickelodeon Resort!
