When we holiday in Bali, Waterbom Bali is on our list of things to do in Bali with kids. This Bali waterpark is amazing and has something for every age including big kids! Over the years I have ventured to Waterbom 8 times so have lots to share related to a great day out at Waterbom Park Bali. We recently visited in August 2023 and loved the new Garden Oasis area. Read on for more details including gazebos and slides in this new area.

Waterbom Park Bali location
Waterbom Park is located in Kuta, Bali, Indonesia, and is close to shops, restaurants, and hotels of Kuta and Tuban. It is directly across from Discovery Mall and easy to get a taxi or Grab car to.
Waterbom Bali Map
See the Waterbom park maps below including the new Oasis Garden area.
Waterbom Bali Opening Hours
Waterbom Kuta is open from 9 am to 6 pm every day including Christmas Day. The only exception is Nyepi Day (Day of Silence) when the park and the whole island are shut down with nothing open not even the airport. This date changes each year but is usually in March.
Waterbom Bali Discount Tickets
If you love to save money then a great place to find cheaper Waterbom tickets online is through Klook. I highly recommend pre-booking tickets as the queue for the pre-purchase counter can be shorter and Waterbom will cap the amount of entries per day if it is really busy.
Please note: If you want to book a gazebo through the Waterbom website you will need to purchase tickets too. Only 50% of the gazebos are allocated online, the remaining gazebos are sold at the gate. You can buy discount entry tickets online and then buy a gazebo at the entry gate.
Waterbom Bali Tickets at the gate
It is easy to buy tickets at the gate when you arrive but there can be a lineup, especially at peak times. Be mindful that they can close the gates if the park is at capacity, it’s always best to arrive early just before the opening time of 9 a.m.
Kids aged under 2 are free and 2-11 years are classed as children when buying tickets. Also if your Balinese nanny accompanies you, make sure you pay the local price for their ticket.
Hire a Gazebo Waterbom, Bali
A visit to Waterbom Water Park with the kids can be made even better when you hire a gazebo. Each gazebo comes with a safe so you may not need to hire a Waterbom locker. We have used a few different gazebos over our visits and in different locations around the park.
- Funtastic Kids (awesome with younger kids under 5 as a view of Funtastic Kid Zone)
- Coconut Chill (great for families with kids of all ages wanting a central location but in a quiet spot)
- Oasis Pool View (love this new area and great for everyone)
Check out this link to see details about gazebos on the Waterbom website.
Please note the fine print with the Gazebo rental. You must allocate a day for the Gazebo to be rented so if your plans change while in Bali the cost is non-refundable. Also, the gazebo hire must be redeemed by 1 p.m. or the gazebo may be released.
If you become unwell or can’t use your tickets or gazebo email firstname.lastname@example.org or call What’s App +62 361 755676 and speak to a team member.
VIP Oasis Gazebo Pool Edge
The new area of Oasis Gardens was opened in August 2023. We were lucky enough to use the VIP pool edge gazebo during our visit not long after it opened. This area was awesome and there were 3 fun slides right near the huge pool with a pool bar. The gazebo was exceptional and I consider it the best at Waterbom Park.
For the Oasis Garden gazebos see the guest relations desk on arrival. This new area includes your very own concierge service! There was so much space for our group of 16 and we had a fantastic time. I would recommend the VIP Oasis Pool View gazebo if you have toddlers or crawling babies.
Price: IDR 2,300,000. Capacity of up to 16 people. Includes cold refreshment towel on arrival, 16 pool towels, sunscreen, soft drinks, and mineral water in mini fridge, concierge service, power outlet for charging, private shower area, and a huge amount of space.
VIP Gazebo Near Funtastic Kids Area
On our 2015 extended family holiday, we hired this huge gazebo as there were 13 of us. We had number 18 which is the VIP gazebo located near the Funtastic Kids Area. It was really private and had plenty of space for all of us including a safe and lounge chairs to lay on. The younger kids could easily have a sleep in their Mountain Buggy Nano Stroller.
Price: IDR 1,7500,00 and capacity up to 12 people. Also includes 12 pool towels, 4L infused water, 5 boxes of popcorn, and 2 pizzas from Wantilan menu. There is also a similar VIP gazebo near the Pleasure Pool.
In 2013 we were lucky enough to hire the number 22 gazebo, the family gazebo near the kid’s zone. These go very quickly and were perfect for 2 families.
Price: IDR 600,000 and capacity up to 8 people. Includes safety box.
For our holiday in 2016, we hired the number 16 gazebo as all the gazebos near the kid’s zone were gone when we arrived at 9:20 am. I actually really liked this spot as it was quiet but close to the kid’s zone without the screaming kids! I also managed to pick up the WIFI from the cafe nearby and the size was perfect for our family of 4 without nanny Kadek.
Price: IDR 450,000 capacity for up to 6 people. Includes safety box.
Waterbom Bali Rides
Waterbom park tickets allow you to ride as many water slides as you can! If you are like me and aren’t a huge daredevil but enjoy a swim, then the main pool is a great spot. We tend to go for a swim earlier in the day as the pool bar can get a bit rowdy after lunch! The new pool at Oasis Garden is also a great option, swim up pool bar is included but be sure to lather on the sunscreen as shade from trees will take time to develop.
Funtastic Kidzone at Waterbom
The kid’s area is fantastic at Waterbom! There are lots of fun things for the younger kids to explore and have a fun day out. The slides are perfect for once the kids are walking and be sure to take a nanny to run around after the kids!
Kids under 6 need to be supervised by an adult. Max height is 125cm.
The slides located near the Funtastic Kids area are perfect for the younger kids and Mum and Dad can go down with the younger ones too. Our kids loved this area and is a great spot for those under 4 years of age.
Waterbom Bali Lazy River
Perfect with the kids, the lazy river is my go-to ‘ride’ now that I can’t do the bigger slides! Easy and relaxing, the whole family can enjoy it.

Waterbom Bali Food
The food options are great at Waterbom! Only a water bottle per person can be taken into the park, no food and drink allowed. Security will check your bag at security and if you have outside food or drink you can leave it at the guest relation counter. We find the food to be reasonably priced and something for everyone. There are gluten-free options available too with the pizza bases gluten-free for an extra cost.
Located in the new Oasis Garden area of Waterbom, this cafe has delicious food and drinks. With a great selection of different cuisines, the food can be delivered directly to your gazebo.
Food Court Wantilan
The food court has a huge range of different food and we ordered lunch during a few visits. Was yummy and they delivered it to our gazebo.
Bali Banana Cafe
Located near the kid’s zone is a great cafe with sandwiches, drinks, and cakes. They also have free WIFI at this cafe. Check out the range of food here.
Resto The Shack
A great range of food at the restaurant near the pleasure pool area. Check out the menu here.
Pleasure Pool Bar
A great range of cocktails and drinks, and a great spot for parents to hang out while the teens ride the slides.
Sliders Bar & Grill
Located near the Flow Rider serving great food.
Snack kiosks including coffee, churros, popcorn, and ice cream
Waterbom Kuta Facilities
Waterbom Bali uses a wristband for payments throughout the water park. You simply load up an amount of money at the entrance and other points around the park to use at all outlets throughout the day. We load up $100 AUD at the start of the day and it is easy to load more if needed. If we don’t use all the money, you can easily get the money refunded when you are exiting Waterbom.
Waterbom Bali Lockers
The lockers are a great way to keep all your gear together securely and are located in different areas around the park. The cashless wristband that you purchase at the entrance allows you easy access to the lockers.
Regular Locker: IDR 35,000 with an IDR 30,000 deposit
Family Locker: IDR 45,000 with an IDR 30,000 deposit
Waterbom Bali Towels
Towels can be hired which is perfect if you don’t want to lug a whole lot of wet towels home if you don’t hire a gazebo including towels.
IDR 20,000 with an IDR 62,000 deposit
Spa at Waterbom
The spa services at Waterbom are well-priced and perfect for relaxing. There are 2 spa areas, a new location in the Oasis Garden area and next to the Lazy River. You can enjoy a massage, nail treatments, hair braiding, and much more.
Waterbom Bali WIFI
WIFI isn’t available throughout the whole Kuta water park but at 3 of the cafes. You just ask for the code and they will give it to you to use for free.
Shopping at Waterbom
At the entrance to the park is a shop with anything that you may have forgotten for your day out. I once forgot my bathers as I had accidentally left them at our villa in Seminyak!! So silly of me but I managed to find a pair of Billabong bathers for a reasonable price. They have a range of swim nappies and other swimming products also near the Funtastatic kid zone if you run out.
These are easy to organise and at the exit gate, you can ask for an armband if you are going to return. This can be especially useful if you have young kids and are staying close by. You could have an early play and then head back to the hotel room for a sleep. You could then return to the park in the afternoon.
Waterbom Security and Safety
Each vehicle that attempts to come to the entrance of the park is checked and bags are inspected after tickets are purchased at the entry gate. The park is extremely clean, each bathroom area has its own attendant! Australian waterparks take note!! We have always felt very safe at the park and the quality control is high.
Disabled and Pram Access
There are many ramps into and around the park and we always find it easy to push a pram around. Mason was also given a wristband to wear by the guest relations team who indicated to the slide teams that he may require more time and assistance. If you have a child or adult with additional needs, see the guest relations desk on arrival.
Sustainability at Waterbom
Waterbom was officially accredited with becoming carbon neutral in 2018. They work very hard at reducing their environmental footprint by introducing the following aspects to the waterpark:
- Water minimization initiatives across the park
- Park-wide waste separation allows recycling and composting to reduce the level of waste ending up in landfills by 20%
You can find more on this page here about all of the fantastic work Waterbom is doing to help make their waterpark sustainable into the future.

These hotels near Waterbom Park Bali have amazing kids facilities and will often have discounts to Waterbom available so make sure to ask if you haven’t pre-purchased your cheap Waterbom tickets.
Holiday Inn Baruna
We loved our stay at Holiday Inn Resort Baruna in 2016 and I also walked through in 2023. The beautiful gardens and pool area are perfect if you like it not too busy. The rooms, although not ultra-new, were comfortable and the kids especially loved the themed rooms of the kid’s suites. We couldn’t keep the kids away from the kids club and the Tea Tree Spa gave us one of the best massages of our trip. You can find our full review here.
Bali Dynasty Resort Bali
If you are after a fun hotel with lots of things to do the Dynasty Resort Bali is for your family. The kids club is so much fun for the kids, they won’t want to leave! We stayed at Bali Dynasty Resort in 2018, 2019, and 2023 in a range of different rooms around the resort. You can find our full review here.
Bali Hard Rock Hotel
The Hard Rock Bali Hotel is a kid’s paradise. We stayed in 2022 and you can find our full review here. The pools, cafe, and kids club make this to be one of the best hotels in central Kuta. If you don’t want to be in the middle of the action the Hard Rock is not for you, but if lots of things to do with the kids then you have found your spot.
Bintang Bali Resort
We always enjoy walking through the grounds of Bintang Bali Resort with the pools that have ocean views. It is a resort that is traditional and has been around for many years. They have family rooms with a king bed and 2 single beds or guaranteed connecting rooms to sleep the whole family. The rooms need to be updated but if you are out exploring and visiting Waterbom it won’t be an issue and great for the budget.
Bali Garden Resort
Located across from the entrance from Waterbom Park, the Bali Garden Resort is a great budget-friendly option. Older-styled rooms, the resort features family rooms with bunk beds and 2-bedroom apartments. A great option if you are on a budget and wanting space.
Febris Hotel Bali
If you are after a cheaper hotel in Kuta that still has great facilities for kids then Febri’s Hotel & Spa is a great choice. The family rooms are great value and the kid’s playground near the pool is great for the kids.
