Pink Elephant Samui Water Park
This water park in Samui has everything — slides, lazy river, shallow pools for toddlers and Jacuzzis with thatched coconut roofs. It’s a classic-style water park with a tropical-island vibe.
The water slides curve and twist around the park and all exit into the same pool. Three of the slides are for the more adventurous sliders. There’s a kids play and swim area where they can climb, slide and splash. There’s also a small wave pool. If you need some time out, you can have a jacuzzi under a coconut thatched roof. There are shaded areas, lounge chairs and umbrellas. There’s a cafe that serves seafood, salads and cocktails plus all the usual theme park foods. They also have a selection of cakes too.
There are no non-swimmer tickets, so if you’re just watching and not swimming you’ll have to pay full price. When it rains the water park closes, and they will not refund if it rains after you have bought your tickets. There have been some safety issues with the park. The fast waterslides can scratch skin. And one child was sucked under the water and injured. So that’s why we recommended Aqua Park Koh Samui as the best water park to go to in Samui.
