Waterbom : An award-winning
sustainable waterpark

Beyond Waterbom Bali’s 26 world-class slides, built and maintained to strict international safety standards, lies a carefully landscaped sanctuary of gardens and water systems proudly representing the beauty of Bali.

The park spans just over 5 hectares and was designed to provide memorable experiences for a range of guests from thrill seekers looking to take on the park’s extreme slides; to families enjoying the expansive Kiddy Area or those simply wanting to relax on the Lazy River and escape the outside world. This boutique waterpark offers a range of premium quality food and drink options from 5 dining outlets, with all dishes made fresh daily, from locally sourced ingredients. After sliding, indulge in a tropical cocktail in one of the 2 swim-up pool bars, or nestle into your own private gazebo with family and friends.

Waterbom take their environmental responsibilities seriously and endeavour to minimise any adverse environmental impact of their operations to the lowest practical levels, while nurturing, encouraging and developing an environmentally responsible culture amongst their team members and guests. As a testament to their dedication, they were honored with the prestigious Grand Title Award for Sustainability and Social Responsibility at the 2023 Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA) Gold Awards.

Recently voted Asia’s #1 waterpark in the TripAdvisor Travellers Choice Awards 2023, and celebrating its 30th Anniversary this year, Waterbom Bali now features 26 slides and 5 dining outlets over 5.1 hectares of boutique tropical gardens.

The newly opened Oasis Gardens area is home to 4 slide attractions accessed by a 20-metre winding slide tower purpose-designed with a cantilevered viewing platform, with views across to iconic Kuta beach. 

As well as the slides, which cater to those on the adventurous side, Oasis Gardens also has plenty to offer those after a slower pace, and areas suitable for the whole family. A large lagoon pool and tropical relaxation area featuring sun beds and gazebos, the outdoor spa and massage area and sunken pool bar with swim-up access all offer a slice of serenity. Whether visiting to experience the slides or relax, all guests can enjoy a range of dishes across Western, Pan-Asian and Indonesian favourites from the Oasis Café under the 50-person outdoor dining pergola.

Oasis Gardens is the latest addition to the much-loved Waterbom Bali, a mainstay for local and international tourists for decades. One of the first waterparks in Indonesia, Waterbom was founded 30 years ago with the intention to provide family-friendly excitement, fun and adventure whilst celebrating and preserving the botanical flora and existing landscape of their location in central Kuta.

"Our goal is to continuously enhance our guest’s experience within the park and innovate with environmentally sustainable developments."

The original environmentally responsible vision of the park’s founder Santo Gulino is continued by his son, Sayan Gulino, who currently leads the Waterbom team as CEO.

“This expansion is phase 1 of several new updates to the park which will excite guests and allow us to offer more variety and enjoyment to visitors. Our goal is to continuously enhance our guest’s experience within the park and innovate with environmentally sustainable developments, ensuring that Waterbom remains a must-visit destination in Bali, with a minimal ecological footprint.” – Sayan Gulino, CEO.

The new Oasis Gardens area integrates a number of sustainable initiatives, including underground pumps and pipes, solar panels and a rainwater harvesting system. Additionally, like the original park, this area was strategically designed around the land’s existing trees, to ensure none were cut down. Over 1000 tropical plants, including six large signature native trees were hand-picked by Sayan and the team from nearby Kediri in East Java, and transported to Oasis Gardens to increase the park’s biodiversity.


The company has adopted a comprehensive approach to environmental sustainability. This includes rigorous waste management practices aimed at minimizing the amount of waste ending up in landfills, aligning their operations with eco-friendly principles. Moreover, their commitment extends to water management, where they employ strategies to significantly reduce their water footprint, actively conserving this invaluable resource.

To promote sustainability at a grassroots level, Waterbom have initiated the ‘Seed of Thought’ program, designed to inspire and educate youth about the importance of eco-conscious living, planting the seeds of awareness and action for a greener future.

Furthermore, they contribute to the community by engaging in corporate social responsibility (CSR) programs that support various environmental protection initiatives on the island. Lastly, within the company, they prioritize staff engagement and awareness through Green Team leadership and thorough team inductions, while also implementing sustainable practices in office areas and among employees, ensuring their commitment to environmental stewardship permeates all aspects of their operations.


“Waterbom has worked since its inception to try and minimize its impact on the environment by following sustainable business practices, and over the last 6 years has implemented a comprehensive Sustainability plan across water, waste and energy management to protect Bali’s natural resources.”


“In Waterbom, water resource monitoring is in full swing, ensuring responsible water use across the various areas. The park’s commitment to sustainability is evident in its nine recharge wells, designed to capture and store rainwater, preventing wasteful runoff. Grey water, once used and now recycled, finds its purpose in nourishing the vibrant gardens. With an eco-conscious touch, the park has installed water-saving taps and appliances throughout. To share the passion for change, a captivating documentary titled “Balancing the Waters” was created, shedding light on Bali’s water challenges and igniting a desire for sustainable water practices within the tourism industry.”


“Waterbom embraced practical changes for greater efficiency. Solar PV Panels were installed to reduce grid electricity usage, and all lighting was switched to LED for energy savings and reduced pollution. Office air-conditioning use was limited, and temperature settings were optimized to cut down on energy consumption. In the background, power infrastructure was upgraded to eliminate waste and inefficiency. These steps marked a practical journey towards a more sustainable and responsible energy management approach.”



“Waste separation stations were placed around the area for recycling and composting, aiming to cut landfill waste down to just 5%. The company had set up the composting facility on-site, giving organic waste a new purpose while also taken steps to reduce single-use plastic, opting for more sustainable options. For non-organic waste, Waterbom teamed up with waste management contractors, showing the commitment to a more eco-friendly future.”


“Waterbom aims to educate youth and empower leaders in sustainability through our in-house program, ‘Seed of Thought’, a series of free workshops throughout the year with the intention of inspiring, empowering, and supplying local communities, educational institutions, and universities with knowledge on how to take action and contribute to the resolution of Bali’s environmental crisis.”


“Waterbom established a dedicated and passionate ‘Green Team’ in the company in 2018, who monitor, record and report the energy, water and waste consumption at the park and work with an external Sustainability consultant to assess and update the Sustainability practices regularly. This team is run by our Eco Champion Coordinator who leads by example and implements programs and training for staff in sustainability practices and environmental awareness.”
