Blessed with Nature’s finest beauty from luscious hills to miles of clear coastline and dazzling turquoise sea, Bali is the ultimate tropical paradise. Among Bali’s many man-made attractions are its luxurious hotels including OSSOTEL and Bali’s greatest pride, the famous Waterbom Waterpark.
Waterbom lies in Bali’s Kuta region and is near some of the finest of Legian hotel options. Regarded as one of Bali’s finest family entertainment centres, the sprawling 3.8 hectare Waterbom Waterpark includes world-class rides and many restaurants and shops thus earning its place among the world’s top 5 best Waterparks. Determined to maintain its family-friendly standards, the Park has been built to the highest safety standards and is an EarthCheck Silver Benchmarked company that is committed to being environmentally sustainable. For the thousands who flock to the Park each year, Waterbom is the ideal family getaway.
Open daily from 9 a.m to 6 p.m, visitors can purchase a ticket and enter a world where relaxation and enjoyment is a motto. Take an exhilarating ride on ‘Fast ‘N Fierce’ or on the dramatic ‘Double Twist’ that transports visitors through heart-stopping twists and sharp vertical drops. Take in the breathtaking views of the Kuta skyline while you snake through the Park on ‘The Pipeline’ or take the 16 meter-long ride on ‘Climax’ and end your ride in a ‘splash’ in the pool below. Spend a relaxing afternoon drifting along Waterbom’s ‘Lazy River’ and admire the gentle ride through waterfalls and foliage.
Enjoy some quiet time in the cool shade of the poolside thatch-roof gazebos and have a refreshing drink at Sunken Poolside Bar or at the new Thai Italian Restaurant that serves the finest fusion cuisine. Visit the Reflexology Centre for a soothing massage and dip your feet into the pond at the Fish Spa. Grab a hotdog and juice from one of the Park’s many food stalls before shopping for chic swimwear and gear at Waterbom’s Retail space and have the expenses charged automatically to your ‘Splashband’ to be paid when leaving the Park after a memorable day spent in Bali’s widely-acclaimed national treasure.
