Spanning over 35 rai in Hua Hin, Vana Nava Hua Hin is uniquely positioned to become one of the best leisure, lifestyle and family entertainment complexes in Asia. Vana Nava Hua Hin will feature Asia’s first ‘Water Jungle’, a tropical jungle themed water park, with future developments to include a 400-room InterContinental Hotels Group operated family resort and premium residences.
Ms. Proudputh Liptapanlop, Managing Director of Proud Real Estate Co., Ltd. said, “It has always been our belief that Hua Hin can become one of the world’s leading leisure destinations. On-going infrastructure improvement programs, including plans for a high-speed train from Bangkok, the Southern Motorway and arrival of international flights at Hua Hin International Airport, will see tourism continue to grow significantly.”
The opening of Vana Nava Hua Hin Water Jungle is expected to help boost tourist arrivals to Hua Hin in the coming years, giving tourists and businesses more options of leisure and sports activities.
Vana Nava Hua Hin is the latest addition to Proud Real Estate’s portfolio. Their investment into Hua Hin began back in 2009, with their flagship hotel, the InterContinental Hua Hin Resort. Ms. Liptapanlop added, “We pride ourselves as a visionary real estate developer that aspires to redefine ‘Living’ with unique projects that enrich society. The same with Vana Nava Hua Hin Water Jungle – the aim is to create a tropical oasis in the heart of Hua Hin, bringing family entertainment and vibrancy for all ages, making it one of the most dynamic tourist destinations in ASEAN.”
In designing Vana Nava Hua Hin Water Jungle, Proud Real Estate has brought in the world’s number one water park specialist from Canada, WhiteWater West, who will bring the latest innovations and top quality equipment especially created for Vana Nava Hua Hin Water Jungle. WhiteWater West has supplied over 5,000 water park projects around the world including installations in global destinations such as the Atlantis in Bahamas and Dubai, Yas Waterworld, Abu Dhabi, Chime Long Waterpark, China, Lotte World Water Park in South Korea, and custom builds aboard the Disney Dream Cruise Ship.
“Given that the aim is to create a regional destination, we have to work with the best and only the best. There will need to be elements of surprise and ‘wow factors’ hidden amidst the tropical jungle that we have created. We want this to be one of most innovative water parks in Asia, with the latest rides and the most unique designs” Ms. Liptapanlop concluded.
Vana Nava Hua Hin Water Jungle is expected to open to the public in late 2014
