Riviera Maya, Mexico To Be Location of Second Nickelodeon Hotel

Representatives from both Karisma Hotels & Resorts and Viacom International Media Networks (VIMN) join some notable Nickelodeon characters for the official groundbreaking of Nickelodeon Hotels & Resorts Riviera Maya 

In July of last year, Travel Agent was the first to bring you news that Nickelodeon Hotels & Resorts' second hotel was going to be in Mexico. 

And now, we are the first trade publication to bring you the details.

Karisma Hotels & Resorts and Viacom International Media Networks (VIMN), a division of Viacom Inc., announced this morning that Nickelodeon Hotels & Resorts Riviera Maya will follow the anticipated opening of Nickelodeon Hotels & Resorts Punta Cana this summer.

Slated to open in December 2017, Nickelodeon Hotels & Resorts Riviera Maya will feature 288 swim-up and infinity suites, each with its own pool on a private terrace or balcony. It will be located on a secluded white-sand beach facing the Caribbean Sea.  

Nickelodeon Hotels & Resorts Riviera Maya will aim to re-imagine the art of hospitality to deliver delightful twists including surprise "slimings" and unexpected visits from popular Nickelodeon characters. 

The first floors of both main buildings will be comprised of swim-up suites that boast direct access to swimming pools and swim-up bars, while floors two through six will host the infinity pool suites with unobstructed ocean views.  

Nickelodeon Hotels & Resorts Riviera Maya’s accommodations will include one-, two-, and three-bedroom suites, each featuring shared living spaces and private pools.   

As a part of Nickelodeon Hotels & Resorts, the Riviera Maya property will provide entertainment for all guests within "Nickelodeon Place." The heart of the resort, Nickelodeon Place will include "Just Kiddin’," a hangout for children; "Character Central," where guests can meet "Dora the Explorer," "SpongeBob SquarePants" and "The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles," and a kid's spa.

After the Dominican Republic and Mexico properties are up and running, Travel Agent was told last year that the plan is to expand Nickelodeon Hotels to Central and South America with destinations such as Brazil; Cartagena, Colombia; and Panama being heavily discussed. Nickelodeon Hotels will also be expanded to Europe. Specifically, the plan calls for Nickelodeon Hotels in such destinations as Sardinia, Italy; Spain; Croatia; Antalya or Bodrum, Turkey; and Greece.
