HOLIDAY Inn has opened its first waterpark in Asia on Thailand’s idyllic Gulf Coast. The hotel has 300 rooms, but the real magic is in the grounds, where you can enjoy a flume-filled splash-about in the water park, including a vortex rubber-ring ride, swimming pools and the largest and longest water slides in Thailand.

For those who want to relax, there is also an infinity pool and a Tea Tree spa, as well as a fun-filled kids club for parents who want a little alone time.

The hotel is a two-and-a-half-hour drive from Bangkok and less than 15 minutes from the popular seaside town of Hua Hin. Children under the age of 12 can stay and dine for free. With unlimited access to Vana Nava Hua Hun Water Jungle and free in-room wireless Internet access, there is no chance of anyone moaning, “I’m bored”.

All the splashing around is certain to build up a strong appetite, so hotel guests can enjoy some cooling daytime refreshments at the Pool Bar, and when the Water Jungle closes and the Gulf of Thailand welcomes the cool night breeze, guests can enjoy traditional dishes at Plamong Restaurant, then head up to the Vana Nava Sky Bar to sip on fruity cocktails.

“We are delighted to welcome guests to Holiday Inn Vana Nava Hua Hin,” Franck Rodriguez, the resort’s general manager told Travel Daily News. “With our unique setting at Vana Nava Hua Hin Water Jungle and extensive range of facilities, the resort is not just a place to stay – it is a destination in its own right.”
