You Can Now Stay in SpongeBob’s Pineapple Under the Sea at the New Nickelodeon Hotel

Welcome to Bikini Bottom

Who lives in a Pineapple Under the Sea? You, potentially.

The new Nickelodeon Hotel and Resort in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic has opened a cartoon-perfect SpongeBob SquarePants replica suite, a two-bedroom freestanding pineapple structure with its own pool. Most importantly, it really does look (and, presumably, feel) like the zany porifera’s iconic animated fruit home. (Although in this instance, those who need air for survival — humans, for instance — should be just fine.)

The Pineapple “Villa” starts at $3,800 a night for up to four adults and two kids. But you do get 24-hour room service included, plus your own private infinity pool. Otherwise, non-pineapple rooms at the resort can be snagged for $375 a person. And because it’s a Nickeloden-themed property, there are quirky twists for guests: think “surprise slimings” (remember that green stuff?) and appearances by Nickelodeon characters, of course.

Take a tour of the uncanny suite, above (and keep an eye out for the pet snail, Gary).
