Transforming Pools into Luxury Water Parks

Adding waterpark amenities to hotels and resorts is a great way to increase reservations. From families to business travelers, offering an elevated pool area will improve guest satisfaction. The demand for premium waterparks has increased in recent years, as post-pandemic travelers are willing to pay more for an upgraded vacation experience. Looking to add a luxury waterpark to your hotel or resort? Here are a few design considerations to keep in mind!

Create a Cohesive Aesthetic

A luxury water park should seamlessly integrate with the overall theme and aesthetic of the resort. Whether it’s a tropical paradise, a futuristic oasis, or a historical retreat, the waterpark’s design elements, color schemes, and architectural features should harmonize with the resort’s overarching narrative. This cohesion creates a holistic and immersive experience for guests.


Tailor Amenities to Your Target Demographic

Consider your target demographic and choose amenities that will attract them. Looking to bring more families into your facility? Incorporate splash pads and multi-level play structures into your design. Trying to entice business travelers to stay an extra day? Make sure you offer ample areas for rest and relaxation, like spas and lazy rivers.

Provide Premium Seating

For guests seeking an exclusive experience, offering private cabanas, VIP lounges, and premium seating areas is essential. These spaces should be strategically located to provide both privacy and easy access to amenities, offering a heightened level of luxury and comfort.

Elevate Your Space with Elegant Finishes

One easy way to create a luxury feel at your water park? Incorporating high-end finishes. By carefully choosing materials and furniture to create a cohesive, relaxing look and feel, your water park will feel more like a private pool club. Adding lush landscaping helps create an oasis-like atmosphere, and greenery provides a mood boost for guests.

Offer Gourmet Culinary Experiences

Incorporating dining options will keep guests on-property. Consider leveling up your poolside fare with multiple options for hungry guests. Bring in world-renowned chefs to create a signature restaurant, develop indulgent appetizers that can be delivered to cabanas and pool chairs, or include a bar area that serves up expertly crafted cocktails and mocktails.

Go Above and Beyond with Swim-Up Bars

Offering a unique blend of relaxation and socializing, swim-up bars allow guests to float in the water while sipping on expertly crafted cocktails. By elevating the traditional bar experience, swim-up bars perfectly compliment the resort’s lavish atmosphere and add to the overall guest experience.

Together, these considerations harmonize to make your resort a coveted destination for discerning travelers seeking an extraordinary leisure experience.
