Sprawled over 3.8 hectares of landscaped tropical gardens, Waterbom is deservedly one of Bali’s most popular adventure attractions. Water slides include adrenaline-inducing rides like Boomerang and Climax – where a 2.5 g-force thunders you down a tube and shoots you out. Those inclined to mellower pursuits can float around the Lazy River, chill in the Pleasure Pool or swim up to the Sunken Pool Bar for a mango daiquiri (you might need a drink if you have ventured onto the Climax!).
Kiddies will love the Funtastic zone, a shallow, fully supervised, aquatic play area with slides, rides and water cannons, and mums can escape into the health and wellness centre for some reflexology or a mani/pedi. While theme parks are not usually synonymous with good food, Waterbom is a remarkable exception with everything from wood-fired pizza to Pret A Manger sandwiches, fresh juices and an international food court.
Tucked between the airport and Kuta, Tuban is popular with families with its mix of mid-range and luxury resorts, white sandy beaches, restaurants and cafés.
