    The said plan, an undersea Nickelodeon Resort and Attraction, will mark the brand’s first resort in Southeast Asia. This is in collaboration with Coral World Park Undersea Resorts Inc, wherein the said undersea attraction will be a 400-hectare development in Coron, Palawan. Expected to open in 2020, this resort is a 70-hectare accommodation and 30-hectare attraction, and it will lounge about 20 feet below sea level.

    According to Senior VP, Global Recreation for Viacom International Gerald Raines, “We’re thrilled to be partnering with Coral World Park (CWP) to open the world’s first undersea attraction and Nickelodeon’s first resort in Southeast Asia as we continue to expand on our theme-based attractions in Asia and across the world.”

    The attraction will be located amidst a cluster of 16 white sand islands of the CWP about 5 to 20 minutes apart by speedboat.  This multi-island experience includes island hopping, hidden lagoons, hot springs, and an animal reserve and world-class diving amidst shipwrecks. When completed, this CWP will be the largest coral reef conservation program in Asia.

    On the other hand, several environmentalists were alarmed of the plan, as they have expressed concerns over “building artificial structures which will disrupt Palawan’s marine ecosystems,” as described in the online petition to say no to Nickelodeon’s plan.
