The Nickelodeon hotel brand is expanding to the Mexican Caribbean.
Karisma and Viacom have announced the planned debut of the new Nickelodeon Hotels and Resorts Riviera Maya in the spring-summer of 2019.
The property will be the second Nickelodeon-branded resort in the region, following the debut of the Nickelodeon Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic.
Nickelodeon Riviera Maya will feature 276 suites, along with four penthouses on the top floor of two six-story buildings.
The property’s broad entertainment offering will include Aqua Nick, a 500,000-square-foot family-friendly complex including a lazy river, waterslides, a splash park and mini relaxation pools.
“We are delighted to continue our successful partnership with Karisma Hotels & Resorts and open this incredible resort along a stunning stretch of white sand beach, providing guests with an authentic vacation experience centered on five-star luxury, playfulness and the warm hospitality that makes Mexico such a beloved destination” said Gerald Raines, Senior Vice President, Location Based Experiences for Viacom International Media Networks.
