Nickelodeon Hotels & Resorts says ‘Aye Aye, Captain!’ and is celebrating SpongeBob SquarePants’ 25th anniversary with events throughout July as part of the Summer of SpongeBob program. Both resorts in Mexico and the Dominican Republic feature new SpongeBob beach-themed overlays and a 25th-anniversary sandcastle display by local artists. And there’s more: your clients can enjoy “watch parties” of classic SpongeBob episodes with themed snacks and purchase 25th-anniversary merchandise.

SpongeBob in the Spotlight

Pineapple Villa at Nickelodeon Hotels & Resort Punta Cana.

At Nickelodeon Hotels & Resorts Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, Team Nick will host a surprise party for SpongeBob with characters like Patrick and Squidward. Festivities include games, a giant cake, piñatas, party favors, live music, and character photo ops. A live DJ will also be at the Gourmet Village and Splash Mobs.

In Riviera Maya, Mexico, guests can join SpongeBob, Patrick, Squidward and Sandy at the Golden Pineapple in the Main Lobby for dancing and a raffle. Kids can enjoy a special SpongeBob-themed drink.

SpongeBob and Patrick will host the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards 2024 live from Bikini Bottom on July 13, featuring enhanced graphics and augmented reality. Guests can save up to 45 percent on bookings made through Aug. 31, 2024, for travel between May 24 and Sept. 3, 2024.

Of note: The brand’s parent company, Karisma Hotels & Resorts, is the first hotel collection to implement the Autism Passport in partnership with Autism Double-Checked (ADC). This passport is a first-of-its-kind comprehensive tool for clients to convey essential information such as communication challenges, sensory sensitivities, special interests, emotional triggers and calming strategies to staff members who will facilitate their stay. The document is accessible online, allowing clients to communicate their unique needs with Karisma hotels, certified airlines and airports.

Autism Double-Checked-certified Karisma hotels include Nickelodeon Hotels & Resorts Riviera Maya, Nickelodeon Hotels & Resorts Punta Cana, Margaritaville Island Reserve® Cap Cana, Margaritaville Island Reserve® Riviera Cancun, and Azul Beach Resort Riviera Cancun. Azul Beach Resort in Negril Jamaica and Margaritaville Island Reserve® Riviera Maya are currently undergoing certification and will be fully certified by the end of 2024.
