Nickelodeon Hotels & Resorts Punta Cana, the world’s first World-Class Gourmet Inclusive Nickelodeon property, reopens Nov. 5. Since its closure on March 20, the resort has carefully prepared to safely open its doors again with Karisma Peace of Mind, a comprehensive well-being program from Karisma Hotels & Resorts.


Nickelodeon Hotels & Resorts Punta Cana is part of Karisma Hotels & Resorts, and features 208 suites in seven different styles. The resort’s Swim-Up Suites are available for a $1 upgrade if booked by Oct. 31 for travel by March 27, 2021.


“Nickelodeon Hotels & Resorts Punta Cana has exceeded all expectations since opening in 2016, and we look forward to continued success together with our partners at Karisma,” said Gerald Raines, senior vice president, 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 the opportunities of getting slimed and sleeping in the Pineapple Villa, inspired by SpongeBob SquarePants’ home in Bikini Bottom.”


The holidays will be even more special this year at Nickelodeon Hotels & Resorts Punta Cana. In December, there will be holiday-themed arts and crafts, and character interactions with festive touches. Guests can spend Christmas Day making holiday souvenirs, taking photos with characters wearing holiday garb, and enjoying entertainment. On New Year’s Eve, embrace a fresh start in 2021 at the resort’s celebration, complete with live music and meet and greets.

For anyone who recently enjoyed the creativity and ingenuity of the city’s outdoor winter dining, an indoor space with heat, cozy furniture and rich wood walls is a much-appreciated semblance of normalcy.
