What’s better than a water park? A water park on your doorstep. Holiday Inn has entered the playcation game with their new branch inside Vana Nava Hua Hin Water Park (032-809-999, goo.gl/9camQz).

Wake up with a ride on Abyss (Thailand’s largest water slide) or float down Lazy River with this hotel’s unlimited access to the water park. The 300-room, family-friendly resort is just 15 minutes from downtown Hua Hin.

For those looking for a break after a day on the slides, there’s a resort spa, a 26th-floor pool bar and a rooftop bar with a glass-bottomed deck. Also on the rooftop is the hotel’s restaurant, which serves Thai, Japanese and Mediterranean tapas with a view of Hua Hin bay.

The beach is also within reach—just a 10-minute walk or a short ride on the free shuttle. Prices are B2,690/night.
