Experience a Wet N’ Wild Wonderland at Bali’s One and Only Waterbom

  • i

Set amidst the stunning backdrop of Bali’s tropical landscapes Waterbom Bali is undoubtedly the island’s premier family-oriented attraction to date. Sprawled across an expansive 3.8 hectare enclave laden with beautiful gardens and over 15 mind-blowing water slides it is easy to see why this splash park and recreational facility is one of the most popular attractions in the island paradise.

Ideal for both young and older visitors Waterbom’s jam-packed attraction list includes waterslides of varying speeds with Smashdown slide being the fastest with speeds of up to 70km an hour; Lazy River meanders at a slightly more leisurely pace. Those who wish to slide down a water tube that is neither too fast nor too slow can opt for the Macaroni Tube, Raft Rover and the Race Track rides that offer medium paced liquid thrills and spills. Other highlights include dizzying tandem rides such as Jungle Ride and Boogie Ride while the Boomerang, Climax and Super Bowl rides are also not for the faint of heart.

As a water park that has been designed and built with both the young and young at heart in mind, Waterbom also incorporates a wide range of points of interest for children that are both safe and engaging for young visitors. Euro Bungy with its 9 metre catapult remains a firm favourite with frequent visitors while the Water Blaster and the pleasure pool are equally engaging for active kids. The Island Ink Airbrush Temporary Tattoo parlour is another highlight in addition to the Fish Spa and wall climbing enclave where one can test one’s agility and strength. Littered with waterfalls, crawling tunnels, water cannons, cargo nets and a swinging foot bridge the park also houses several gazebos and cabanas for rest and relaxation between rides.

The Sunken Pool Bar and Wantilan Food Trail are ideal places to dig in to Balinese favourites after a day of splashing around while other food, snack, ice cream and burger vendors are found throughout the parkland. A retail shop with souvenirs and a digital photography service are also available on-site for added convenience.

Travellers on the lookout for luxury Uluwatu hotels will be more than satisfied with the elegant Anantara Bali Uluwatu. Ideally located on the shores of the island’s southern coast this stylish rest is one of the most scenically located Bali resorts in Indonesia.
