    NickelodeonTM Hotels & Resorts Punta Cana, the first ever five-star International Nickelodeon Resort, is set to open this summer, and it’s going to be awesome.

    From the Aqua Nick Waterpark, to Just Kiddin’ Kids Club & the famed Pineapple Villa, you can expect a luxurious resort with playful elements everywhere you step.

    But what you may not know about the Nickelodeon Resort Punta Cana, is that it also comes with the Gourmet Inclusive® Experience by Karisma. For those who don’t know, Gourmet Inclusive® is pretty much the all-inclusive concept, but elevated to a whole new level. When it comes to service, no request is too small. From baby amenities like strollers, play pens & toys, to personal concierges who can assist in dinner reservations, booking excursions & more, the Gourmet Inclusive® service is simply unparalleled.

    For foodies curious about dining, this is where Gourmet Inclusive® truly stands out. Your cuts of beef are juicier, your wines are finer, and your food just tastes better.

With over 12 restaurants and bars to enjoy, there really is something to please every palate.
