Ever since Nickelodeon Hotels & Resorts first opened their resort in Punta Cana in 2016, I knew it would a place that I would eventually visit! It's such a fun themed resort and perfect for a family vacation in the Dominican. When my agency, Centre Holidays, announced it would be holding their first travel agent conference in Punta Cana, (where I was also privileged to share my passion and knowledge of Disney with other agents!) I wanted to travel down a couple of days earlier to experience the fun and excitement of the Nickelodeon Punta Cana Resort by Karisma, a five star luxury resort full of awesomeness!
The Gourmet Village is centrally located and provides a marketplace atmosphere for all the guests of Nickelodeon and Sensatori Resorts, including Doppio coffee shop, several signature restaurant experiences such as Wok Wok Far East Fusion cuisine; Verdello Sicilian Kitchen; Brgrs PH for artisan burgers, Space Walker Interstellar Cuisine, Kitchen 23 (adult only) or a piano bar experience at Vino Vino.
Signature "must have" dining experiences include the Machete Burger (which we didn't to experience!) but is an artisan burger large enough for the whole family, and Space Walker, the Interstellar Restaurant, featuring the signature desserts, "The Inner Core" and "Houston, We Have a Problem".
It's called The Inner Core. And it's a part of the Interstellar Space experience at Space Walker Restaurant. Watch the magic unfold.......White chocolate ball drizzled with hot chocolate syrup until it opens up to a passion fruit mousse dessert!
