Nickelodeon dives into Philippines for undersea resort
Viacom International Media Networks, which runs channels like MTV, Nickelodeon and Comedy Central, says it is partnering Coral World Park Undersea Resorts to build its first undersea attraction – in Coron, Palawan, in the western Philippines.
The brand’s first themed resort in south-east Asia, the 100ha Nickelodeon Resort and Attraction, is expected to open in 2020, with 70ha for accommodation and 30ha for the themed attraction.
The destination will showcase Nickelodeon’s famous characters including SpongeBob SquarePants, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Dora the Explorer. It will also feature underwater restaurants and lounges located six metres below sea level.
It will be part of Coral World Park, a 400ha undersea-themed development spread across a cluster of 16 islands, which are five to 20 minutes apart by speedboat.
Coral World Park will open in phases starting from next year, and developers say visitors can expect “a multi-island experience” that includes island hopping, lagoons, hot springs, an animal reserve, shipwreck diving and the biggest coral reef conservation program in Asia.
Viacom has already expanded into Asia, last year opening the Nickelodeon Lost Lagoon, the first Nickelodeon theme park in Asia at Sunway Lagoon, Malaysia.
