Splash Waterpark at Canggu Club is a terrific place to cool off from the hot Balinese sunshine. Little Bali Lovers and Big Bali Lovers can choose from an awesome selection of four waterslides.
There is the Giant Racer – a five story, 90 metre monster of a slide which our two eldest loved (they are 7 and 9). There is a smaller version in the Speed Racer, which has enough speed for the littler ones without terrifying them although our five year old was a little overwhelmed. Then there is the Super Bowl that spins you around until you literally drop out of the bottom and into the splash pool as well as the Big Red that twists and turns down for five storeys!
If the slides start to exhaust you then head on over to Crazy Creek where a calming watercourse allows you to float around and take five. There are big rubber tyres to sit in and our three year old happily floated around with us.
Teeny Bali Lovers are kept entertained in the Splash Playground with mini slides, buckets tipping out water on top of squealing children and a constant stream of water shooting out from mini cannons, all the while playing on the climbing fort.
Mums and Dads can join in the fun or take a moment on the vast selection of poolside lounges making relaxation and keeping a watchful eye on the kids a breeze. Plus the lifeguards at Splash were so impressive that we commented several times on how proactive they were with everyone’s safety.
We turned up at Splash after brunch without being quite as prepared as we normally are – we were certainly in holiday mode! But these guys have it covered. We hired towels for IRP160,000 which is approx. AUD$16.00 for two adults and four children. (There was a IRP500,000 deposit that you get back once you return the towels.) There is also Banana Boat sun cream and goggles available for purchase.
From midday there is a barbeque set up poolside where weary sliders can grab chargrilled corn on the cob. We ordered from the Canggu Club menu, which includes great kids options like fresh juices, grilled cheese sandwiches, satay and burgers. For us, it was the terrific fish tacos that kept us happy.
Entry to Splash also allows entry to the Canggu Club East, which includes the fitness centre, swimming pool, sports bar, tennis centre and spa so you can really make a day of it. All in all, a great day out.
Open daily 9am – 7pm
Kids (3-17 years): IRP 120,000/ Adults: IRP 240,000
