Whitewater, international waterpark experts, has announced construction work is well underway on a new waterpark on the beach at Mina Seyahi, Dubai.

Known as Jungle Bay, the waterpark is inspired by the Cyclades, boasting a clean, minimalist design. The waterpark will feature rides and attractions for all ages, including Whizzard and Body Slides, the Lighthouse Mat Racer ride, an AquaPlay structure, a 6 metre pneumatic wave pool, and much more. Guests will be able to enjoy food and refreshments at the Refuel Café and Bar.

Jungle Bay can be accessed exclusively by guests staying at the Westin Mina Seyahi and Le Meridien Mina Seyahi hotels.

Work on the waterpark is expected to be complete by the end of 2020, with the first visitors being welcomed to the site in January 2021.

The Mina Seyahi area of Dubai extends across part of Jumeirah Beach and the recently developed Dubai Harbour. The harbour is home to a state-of-the-art cruise terminal and the largest marina in the region.

Mike Rigby, executive vice president, Middle East and India for WhiteWater, commented on the project: “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.”
