Not just the best waterpark in Bali, Waterbom is number one in the entire vast continent of Asia.
How good can it be? Think 3.8 hectares of lushly tropical gardens, white-knuckle rides by the dozen, miles of lazy rivers and lagoons, the steepest waterslide in Asia; and even Balinese spas for post-terror soothing.
Go in good conscience: Waterbom also holds an Earth Check Gold Medal for sustainability, and over 50% of its grounds are green space and indigenous planting.
Where to stay: Try Hotel Berry Glee for its funky theme rooms and huge swimming pools, close to Waterbom and Kuta’s Entertainment District.
