November 14, 2020

Leading global waterpark manufacturer WhiteWater has announced the commencement of work at the new Jungle Bay attraction at Mina Seyahi, Dubai.

An exclusive attraction for guests of the Westin Mina Seyahi and Le Meridien Mina Seyahi hotels and located on the beach at Mina Seyahi, Jungle Bay will be home to rides and attractions for all ages, including the Lighthouse Mat Racer ride, Whizzard and Body Slides, an AquaPlay structure, gentle childrens’ slides and a 6-metre pneumatic Wave Pool.

Guests will also be able to enjoy refreshments from The Refuel Café and Bar.

Construction work has already commenced, and are expected to be completed by the end of this year with the first visitors to be welcomed from January 2021.

The Mina Seyahi area of Dubai covers part of the well-known Jumeirah Beach as well as the recently developed Dubai Harbour - a high-quality maritime destination that is home to a cruise terminal and the biggest marina in the region.

Commenting on the project, Mike Rigby, Executive Vice President, Middle East and India for WhiteWater, stated “we’re delighted to be working with such a prestigious hotel brand on this exciting new project, which we’re sure will add immeasurable value to the property’s proposition for guests.

“Dubai is the ideal destination for a water amenity as part of a hotel or resort, with Mina Seyahi being a prime location within the emirate, and Jungle Bay will only enhance the already irresistible experience for visitors.”

Tolga Lacin, Area General Manager for Marriott International, added “the Westin Mina Seyahi and Le Meridien Mina Seyahi are already two of Dubai’s most popular hotels, attracting thousands of guests year after year. The addition of Jungle Bay will place the properties firmly at the forefront of the tourism offering in the emirate.

“We’re excited to be partnering with WhiteWater, having spent many months working with them to design the perfect water amenity for our properties, and we look forward to our first guests enjoying all the action in the park very soon.”

Earlier this year, WhiteWater also announced the Endless Surf project in Vietnam with Surf the Wave, a lifestyle and real estate development company.

Concepts for the attraction were developed by the Sanderson Group.
