Andamanda: new water park opens in Phuket

New Phuket water park Andamanda offers a wide range of rides, slides, attractions, and activities, all interwoven with Thai culture, legend and mythology.

Andamanda Phuket is a brand-new water park and leisure complex that will immerse visitors in a world of Thai mythology and legend, while enjoying the thrill of several exciting waterslides. It is located in the Kathu district of Phuket, between the main tourism hubs of Phuket Town and Patong Beach.

Andamanda is the largest leisure and entertainment facility in Phuket, covering 9.3 hectares of land, comprising a wide range of recreational components, including a Thai heritage-themed water park with five separate zones, (Coral World, The Pearl Palace, Emerald Forest, Great Andaman Bay and Naga Jungle) and two dining areas (The Village and Tropical Beach) – plus extensive entertainment spaces and retail outlets.

The complex includes a collection of thrilling slides and rides designed by WhiteWater West, who have worked with global theme parks such as Atlantis Dubai and Disney. Guests can float down a 550-metre-long lazy river, the longest in Asia, and splash in a vast 10,000 square-metre wave pool that will generate waves up to three-metres high – the highest of any pool in Thailand. Andamanda offers cozy cabanas and VIP pavilions throughout the park, tropical beachfront restaurants, and a series of stunning swim-up bars – including one nestled in a near-life-size replica of Koh Tapu, Thailand’s famous “James Bond Island” – allowing visitors to chill out in style.

What sets Andamanda apart, is its focus on Thai culture and mythology. The park will immerse guests in the legend of “The Lost Kingdom of the Nagon”, an inspirational folk tale set amid the landscapes and seascapes of the Andaman coast. There is a floating market with traditional boats, local arts & crafts, authentic food & beverage outlets, and a stage for cultural performances.

Sustainability is at the core of this development. Andamanda will adopt a circular approach to water management, with a continuous loop of water being reused and recycled. Single-use plastics are prohibited, over 100,000 trees have been planted and solar energy is used to power the complex.

To celebrate the return of international guests, Andamanda Phuket has unveiled its early bird ticket prices. For adults, the “Adventure Explorer” ticket is priced at just THB 850 (AUD 34) – down from the standard price of THB 1500 (AUD 60), while children below 122cm in height can enjoy the “Mini Explorer” price of just THB 550 (AUD 22) – down from THB 1000 (AUD 40).
