Bang Saray Bay, NaJomtien, Thailand (February 2008) — In February 2008, The Beaches Resort & Residences, Bang Saray Bay, unveiled a new, unprecedented 30-acre waterscape, Amazon Falls which will be designed by White Water West Industries, the world's leading waterpark designers. This non-stop water experience will consist of thrilling new water slides, a thrilling river ride, and never-before-
Every aspect of The Beaches Resort & Residences involves a sense of discovery and has been designed to ignite one's imagination. Amazon Falls, too, takes known water-based attractions such as water slides, river rapids, waterfalls and water holes, and adds first-of-its-
Geoff Chutter, CEO of White Water West Industries said: "Amazon Falls will set new standards for 5-star luxury water amenities for the family in Thailand. We will be creating one-of-a-kind water rides to cater to the most seasoned traveler, bringing unprecedented fun and excitement to coming to the resort over and over again. There will be nothing like Amazon Falls in Asia, coupled with spectacular surroundings of the lush landscaping — as we bring the Amazon to "life" at The Beaches. We are creating water grottos, waterfall slides with twists and uexpected turns to continually thrill our guests and owners."
The Zambezi Surf Park is the grand icon of Amazon Falls. Debuting in Thailand for the first time, visitors will be able to surf continuously all day long on this technologically-
Surrounding the entire waterpark is a river ride system with waves pushing inner tube riders through lush landscape. The river loop, called The Anaconda, is approximately 1 mile long and harbors elevations and drops, as well as an area called The Rapids, featuring white-water rapids. A wave generator simulates a wave surge that propels riders in their inner tubes along the course of the river on the wave crests. It will also feature a giant AquaPlay water extravaganza, which has over 50 different amenities ranging from waterfall buckets, water squirt guns and volcanoes, slides and much much more to entertain children from 2-12 years old. For the more adventurous, White Water West has also designed thrilling water slides such as the family boomerango, superbowl, racing slides, and the jet blaster.
In addition to the numerous tidal pools and entry points along Amazon Falls, guests have access to two spectacular pools — Montego Bay and the largest pool at the resort, The Carribean Bay.
Liakat Dhanji, CEO and Chairman of Pacific Shore Developments Ltd. said, "In designing Amazon Falls, we challenged the best designers at White Water West to create a once-in-a-lifetime experience for the entire family — there is really something for everyone here — from toddlers to teens to adults. You can relax or enjoy a complete action packed day when you visit The Beaches. We believe that visitors want more value and spend more quality time with each other, something that staying at a regular resort can never deliver at an ordinary pool. We believe in creating memories that last a lifetime — so that the experience gives guests another energy, another layer of excitement, a feeling that they are in a place they've never been before,"
Added Mom Luang Rajadasri Jayankura, Honorary Chairwoman of The Beaches Resort & Residences, "It is simply not enough for us to develop just a pool and spa amenity for our guests and owners like a typical hotel. Our goal is to redefine the concept of a world-class destination resort with a waterpark amenity that will set new standards of excellence in Asia.
