What better way to enjoy a splashy day than having a fun time at Phuket’s largest water park? Andamanda Phuket Water Park is one of the newest and largest water parks on the island. Featuring 5 different areas, the water park offers a range of slides, thrilling water rides, lazy river pools and even acrylic pool bars.
Whether you just want to escape the heat and cool off, slip and slide with the kids, or try some thrill rides, you’re sure to have a fantastic day here. But that’s not all. Andamanda Phuket Water Park has a thai heritage theme, allowing you to immerse yourself in a one-of-a-kind Thai mythological experience based on the legend of the “Lost Kingdom of Nagon”. And to make your stay even more fun, each area of the water park has a mascot. Let’s get to know them!
1. The Great Nagon
The gate to Andamanda Water Park is called The Pearl Palace. Here you will meet the Grand Nagon. In legend, the Grand Nagon has protected the Great Andaman Bay and the jewel of the island since the dawn of time. He decided to divide his supreme power into five parts. Every portion of his power was etched into five sacred objects scattered throughout the island.
After splitting and losing its power, the Great Nagon transformed into a massive rock statue, guarding the village gate as a sacred landmark. The reunion of the five sacred objects would bring back the Great Nagon and its Supreme Power. By exploring the water park, you can help him collect the five sacred objects. You can find the massive Grand Nagon statue, 9 meters high, at the entrance of the water park. Every hour, Le Grand Nagon lights up with an impressive show of effects for your entertainment. The Grand Nagon statue is so remarkable that it makes for a great vantage point, so be sure to snap a few photos before entering the water park.
Want to remember your amazing times at Andamanda Phuket? There is a photo booth service at Pearl Palace and professional photographers who will be sure to capture your splashing moments in the water park. Additionally, the Pearl Palace is home to the Water Park Shop, where you can find various Andamanda merchandise and local produce to take home.
Find Chaiya at the Village, the water park restaurant where you can enjoy delicious food and desserts to replenish your energy after riding the fun slides and rides. With its Thai-style decorations, shadow puppets and floating market, The Village Restaurant is a great place to immerse yourself in the charm of a traditional Thai market. Here you can also indulge in delicious local Thai, Italian and American dishes cooked to order.
Be sure to try the Massaman Chicken, ‘The Village’ Beef Burger, Phuket Pizza and Pad Thai if you’re looking for a satisfying meal to get you ready to explore the water park. If you fancy something sweet, a range of Thai desserts are also available. In addition to delicious cuisine, The Village is also home to the Andamanda Trading Company. At this retail store, you’ll find a range of local Thai snacks and toys, as well as vintage souvenirs.
The mascot was named Chaiya at birth in memory of his ancestry. Known to be very brave, Chaiya is determined to protect his island and its people. He walks around with personalized boxing shorts from Suratthani and Pha Khao Ma (Thai traditional cloth) at the waist. Chaiya is an adept fighter who is super strong and fast. With his talents of Muay Thai and kickboxing, he brings together all the sacred objects of Grand Nagon. Chaiya invites you to discover all the sacred objects around this great water park in Phuket.
Head to the Emerald Forest area and find Nora, a mystically beautiful Kinnaree wearing an angel costume. Nora holds the Emerald Stone, which is the first of the sacred objects found by Chaiya. The emerald stone has the power of defense. He is so strong that almost no element or force can penetrate his barrier power. Thanks to the emerald stone, Nora can create thunderstorms.
To find the Emerald Stone in the Emerald Forest, you can join Nora to climb Kinnaree Temple and descend 6 meters high from Angel’s Slides to Thailand’s longest Master Blaster duel. Plus, a thrilling ride called the Flight of Kinnarees invites you to freefall down a slide into a 3.1-meter deep pool. When you’ve had enough of exciting exploration, relax in the Emerald Pool or grab a refreshing signature cocktail at the Sand Beach and Sand Bar, such as Pandaway and Tamarind Julip cocktails.
Meet Batik, the cheerful whale shark who lives in Coral World. Batik is a very friendly mascot who is considered the real big brother of the underwater world. He has the Magic Ribbon Silk, the second of the sacred objects found by Chaiya. The silk of the bright orange magic ribbon has the power of transformation. He can transform into any object on earth, and he only listens to the command of the Great Whale Shark. By using the magic silk ribbon and the magic bead on his headband together, Batik can create a giant wave.
Besides finding the Magic Ribbon Silk and meeting Batik, you can have an exciting time in the Coral World. It features kid-friendly water slides, water guns, water buckets and 550 meters Rolling Ripples, Asia’s longest lazy river. Atoll’s Adventure is where you’ll find a three-story interactive play structure with 8 slides and hands-on water play. These include interactive water guns, nozzle taps and Batik water buckets. The water buckets dump 500 gallons of water on anyone below every five minutes, so watch out!
Do you enjoy the water park with your little ones? Head to Wonder Waterland, where kids can jump and splash around with the interactive jellyfish swings or slide and slide down the Mr Krab waterslide. Water nozzles, tipping buckets and a few animal friends are also available to add even more fun. Here, parents and all ages can also have fun!
If your little ones want thrilling experiences, Little Reef is the place to go. Little Reef offers the littlest thrill seekers their own miniature version of the Andaman slides for hours of fun.

Plus, the whole family can play together on the slides, creating a memorable family experience to remember for years.
5. Captain Samut
When you go to The Great Andaman Bay area of the water park, you will meet the mighty Captain Samut, a pirate born to be a hunter. Captain Samut always brings an amphibious hermit crab, called Sarang, as a partner in his evil plans. Sarang can only communicate with Captain Samut and he can predict the weather using his two pairs of tentacles.
Captain Samut possesses the World Sword, the third of the Sacred Items Chaiya finds. The world sword holds the power of destruction. It is so powerful that it could shatter the core of the earth.
In the Great Andaman Bay, you can meet Captain Samut and Sarang, find the World Sword, and relax on the 10,000 square meter man-made beach. The artificial beach at The Great Andaman Bay is the only place in Thailand where you will find 3 meter artificial waves, so imagine all the water fun you can enjoy here! In addition, The Great Andaman Bay also invites you to discover almost vertical slides and sip an icy cocktail at a pool bar at the Wave Bar. Inside the Wave Bar, you can find the almost life-size James Bond Island. On this emblematic island, you can find the fourth sacred object: The Heart of Nagon.
6. Petit Nagon
Little Nagon is a peaceful-minded orange creature who lives in the Naga jungle. Little Nagon itself is a sacred object. When you bring the heart of the Nagon to the little Nagon, its power will return and become one of the special items that hold the power of the great Nagon.
While hunting the sacred object in the Naga jungle, you can enjoy thrilling rides. Head to the Sun Tower for Racing Naga, where you can find a 6-lane water track and slide headfirst with your friends. Not exciting enough for you? Try freefalling in Dragon’s Drop, diving through a closed reverse loop channel for more than 61m in the Cobra Curls, or sliding on your back in the Garuda Soars at Moon Tower.
When it’s time to recharge your energy, or if you just need some refreshments, head to the Tropical Beach Restaurant in the Naga Jungle Zone. The restaurant offers grilled Thai seafood, surf and turf and refreshing desserts. The Barb-B-Que Pork Ribs & Cajun Prawn is incredibly delicious if you’re craving seafood.
