The Nickelodeon Hotels & Resorts Punta Cana recently opened its doors in this important tourism destination, making it the first Nickelodeon brand to open outside the United States. The 208-suite all-inclusive beachfront hotel offers luxurious family vacation packages which includes gourmet cuisine, premium drinks, personalized services and a wide range of activities, including events hosted by Nickelodeon characters.
The heart of the resort is the “Nickelodeon Village,” where kids will enjoy a complete playground area, fun slides and a river. There is also the Characters Section, where guests can meet the characters from the Nickelodeon television programs. All other facilities and amenities are concentrated on family-oriented activities. The hotel provides guests with baby food, cribs and bottle warmers, to mention but a few.
In addition to the many activities at the Nickelodeon resort, the hotel also offers snorkeling, lighted tennis courts, yoga, stretching, aqua gym classes, dancing, cooking classes, diving, equipment rentals and deep sea fishing, a spa and massage center, romantic or family-oriented dinners at the beach and nearby world-class golf courses.
The hotel’s 10 restaurants cover a wide variety of tastes and culinary interests, and most offer guests truly elegant surroundings.
Just to mention a few: The Sugarcane Market, featuring an open kitchen; The Verdello (Sicilian cuisine); Spacewalker (with an innovative inter-stellar menu featuring “dishes from another galaxy”); The Lighthouse (Caribbean cuisine); Zest (Mediterranean); Wokwok (Oriental Fusion); BRGRS.PH (hamburgers and other family-oriented treats); Kitchen 23 (a chef’s delight); Fresco (a very creative menu in an open casual setting); Aqua Bite (a light menu, next to the pool); and the Doppio Caffee (for a relaxing cup of tea or coffee).
The hotel’s 208 suites, as is the entire resort, is designed and equipped for family-oriented vacations. It also features seven different types of suites and villas:
PAD SUITE. The perfect setting for a small family, featuring a king-size bed, or 2 double beds, a pullout sofa bed, dining room, TV, playground, bathroom with separate tub, and a large balcony.
SWIM-UP PAD SUITE. This suite is similar to the Pad Suite, but includes a terrace with a lounge and direct access to the resort swimming pool.
FLAT SUITE. A spacious option that can accommodate private parties and other social entertainment events. The suite includes living areas, dining room, a master suite, plus a separate small room. The kids can also have their own special area: their beds are easily converted into a family room/den.
SWIM-UP FLAT SUITE. This particular suite offers the same facilities as the Flat Suite, except that this one has direct access to the swimming pool right from its private terrace.
SWANK SWIM-UP SUITE. The suite also features a private terrace with direct access to the swimming pool. The master bedroom features a king-size bed, a smart-TV and an oversized marble bathroom with separate tub.
SUPER POOL VILLA. This amazing 1,500 square foot, two-story villa features two bedrooms and three bathrooms. Also, a lush surrounding tropical garden, an infinity pool, a private outdoor shower and butler service.
THE PINEAPPLE. This 1,500 square foot villa is inspired by the very unique home of SpongeBob. It also features two bedrooms, three bathrooms and has all the modern and luxury amenities of the Super Villa. The only difference is that guests are immediately surrounded by SpongeBob’s very special world.
The hotel’s butler service is ready to meet the demands of visiting guests. Before their arrival, guests are sent a questionnaire where they provide management with their most important preferences, reservation for various activities, and preferential access to restaurants, spas, magazines and newspapers. The butler service can also program private activities for all guests.
