Kathu Waterpark Opening on December 15
‘Phuket Aquapark’, the island’s newest attraction, is scheduled to open on December 15. The Aquapark is located in Kathu, in the Phuket Country Club/Bang Wad Dam area.
With the intention to cater to tourists and locals alike, the area already hosts a number of tourist facilities such as golf courses, Go-Carting tracks, shooting ranges and some shopping centers. This all is in easy reach of over 50% of the island’s hotel rooms over the hill in Patong and the immediate area.
Located on 40 rai and developed by a joint venture foreign/Thai partnership, construction is now nearing completion. While a second waterpark is set for opening this year at West Sands Villas and Condominiums in Mai Khao, the one in Kathu is expected to generate a considerable amount of visitors because of its proximity to the island’s major tourist destination, Patong, which is only about 10-15 minutes away. For tourism, the ‘Phuket Aquapark’ is a great demand generator and the opening will be just in time to take advantage of the peak season.
