The highly anticipated, 5-star, all-inclusive Nickelodeon Hotels & Resorts Riviera Maya rolled out the orange carpet in early August as the ultimate family-friendly destination. Nickelodeon’s slimings and characters meet Karisma Hotels & Resorts’ unmatched hospitality. During the fall opening period, rates start at $259 per person, and can be booked through Aug. 31, for travel through Jan. 4, 2022.
“As Mexico’s first and only Nickelodeon resort, Nickelodeon Hotels & Resorts Riviera Maya transports kids and adults alike into the imagination-expanding worlds of the entertainment brand’s beloved shows,” said Mario Mathieu, senior vice president of business development, design and construction, Karisma Hotels & Resorts. “From surprise and delight interactions with an expanded cast of 20 characters and one of the country’s largest water attractions, to signature themed accommodations, such as the first-ever Lair Suite and more, there is a one-of-a-kind experience waiting to ignite the spark of play for all guests.”
The resort features 280 ocean-front swim-up suites that accommodate families of five with two full bathrooms and an oversized balcony. Playful design elements include art pieces from beloved shows and furnishings inspired by Nickelodeon’s iconic colors and characters. Three specialty suites include the 3,000-square-foot Big Kahuna Suite, evoking Nickelodeon nostalgia; the rooftop penthouse Lair Suite, paying homage to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles; and the Pineapple Suite, inspired by SpongeBob’s underwater home.
The six-acre Aqua Nick is one of Mexico’s largest themed water parks, with an activity pool, Soak Summit Main Tower, Paw Patrol Adventure Bay, Bikini Bottom Beach and Daily Super Slimings. Nickelodeon Place is the hub for many of the resort’s entertainment features. Additional amenities still waiting to debut include Náay Spa, Club Nick, Personal Slimings and Nick Live! Poolside.
