The big splash
Phuket Orchid Resort and Spa introduces the Giant Slippery Slip, ensuring families and guests will enjoy much more than a pool. The huge, 12-metre-high water slide, which gets its name from the slide in Enid Blyton’s “The Faraway Tree” books, takes pride of place in the middle of the resort’s lagoon pool and is accompanied by a second-tier slide at 7.5-metres tall for younger children. There are also four other smaller slides in the dedicated kid’s only pool for even younger children. Visit www.KataGroup.com/phuket-orchid.
