Karisma is adding a new resort in Mexico this summer, Caribbean Journal has learned.
The new all-inclusive Nickelodeon Hotels and Resorts Riviera Maya will be the first-ever Nickelodeon-branded resort in Mexico.
The resort will have 280 oceanfront suites, all of which will be of the swim-up variety.
“After the huge success of the Nickelodeon Hotels & Resorts Punta Cana, we could not be better poised to expand the brand experience with our resort with all oceanfront swim-up suites, along with themed experiences with an extended cast of 20 your favorite Nickelodeon characters,” said Mario Mathieu, Senior Vice President of Business Development, Design and Construction at Karisma Hotels & Resorts. “This property features many firsts such as the new Turtle Lair Suite, even more dedicated entertainment spaces such as SNICK Lounge and Mainstage, and the one-of-a-kind Aqua Nick with its epic slides, river rides and the teen-friendly Soak Summit, which will be a destination in itself.”
The resort is the product of a partnership between Karisma and Grupo Lomas.
“We are delighted to continue our successful partnership with Grupo Lomas and Karisma Hotels and Resorts to open this incredible resort along a stunning stretch of white sand beach, providing guests of all ages with an authentic vacation experience centered on five-star luxury, playfulness and the warm hospitality that makes Mexico such a beloved destination,” said Kevin Suh, President of Themed Entertainment at ViacomCBS. “With Viacom Global Insights reporting that 70 percent of kids find family time one of the most important sources of happiness, we’re excited to offer a fun destination that gives them a world-class family experience they won’t ever forget.”
It’s the second major resort set to launch in the Mexican Caribbean for Karisma in a year, following last summers launch of the new Margaritaville Island Reserve.
And it will be the second Nickelodeon resort in the Caribbean, joining the Nickelodeon Hotels and Resorts Punta Cana.
