The resort's four 2,200-square-foot Super Villas each have two or three bedrooms; among them is the Pineapple Villa, inspired by SpongeBob SquarePants' home.

Complimentary, family-focused amenities include baby food, strollers, cribs, kids' spa robes and baby bottle warmers.

Karisma said the resort will have 10 restaurants "ranging from kid-friendly to elegant." At the Space Walker, guests will dine inside what looks like a space shuttle. At Nosh, Nickelodeon characters will make appearances. Verdello will serve Sicilian cuisine, including pizza.

The Vassa Spa will have five treatment suites, a couple's suite, outdoor treatment areas, an herbal steam room, a dry sauna, chromotherapy showers, bubble beds, a whirlpool and arctic and warm water pools. A "perfectly pink" treatment will be available for young visitors.

Karisma said that standard rates begin at $345 per person, per night.
