Nickelodeon dives into Philippines for undersea resort
The Philippines and Singapore, January 10, 2017
 

Viacom International Media Networks has revealed plans to partner with Coral World Park Undersea Resorts to build its first undersea attraction in Coron, a municipality in the western Philippine province of Palawan.

 

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 themes centred on Nickelodeon’s iconic 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 with views of the ocean.

 

The Nickelodeon complex will be part of Coral World Park (CWP), a 400ha undersea-themed development spread across a cluster of 16 islands, which are five to 20 minutes apart by speedboat.

 

CWP will open in phrases starting from 2018, and developers say visitors can expect "a multi-island experience" that includes island hopping, lagoons, hot springs, an animal reserve, shipwreck diving and the largest coral reef conservation programme in Asia.

 

This announcement marks Nickelodeon’s expansion into Asia, following last year’s opening of Nickelodeon Lost Lagoon, the first Nickelodeon theme park in Asia at Sunway Lagoon, Malaysia.
