TUI MAGIC LIFE Waterworld
This hotel’s snapped up a spot in Antalya’s Belek, which boasts a Blue Flag-waving beach and a bevy of golf courses. Meanwhile, the TUI MAGIC LIFE Waterworld is right next to its own beach, so the waves are just footsteps away. Plus, in the hotel’s grounds you’ll find a choosy line-up of eight pools that’ll have you pumping up your inflatables in record time. And, if that wasn’t enough, there’s also an aquapark that comes complete with 10 top-tier slides. When you’ve had your fill of slipping and sliding, soak yourself in the adults-only number or you can take a seat at one of the hotel’s seven bars to sip a more special kind of water.
Ali Bey CLub
The action-packed Ali Bey Club makes its home in Antalya. They don’t do things by halves here – the hotel’s waterpark stretches over a mind-melting 25,000 square metres. Your spoilt for choice with loads of themed slides including a kamikaze, a space bowl and a black hole. Little ones are covered, too, with the mini beach area, complete with pint-sized slides. All that splashing got you feeling peckish? No snacks, no problem. The restaurant in the waterpark has you covered – even the bill, if you pick an All Inclusive package.
Aqua Fantasy Aquapark Hotel & Spa
This hotel’s anchored in Kusadasi and, if you’re all about the slides, slip no further than this award-winning, watery giant. It’s home to a squad of 31 slides, a lazy river, racer lanes, swirling plughole and a wave pool. Plus, kids can take a ride of their own size – there’s a pocket-sized treasure island for little Long John Silvers, too. The splashes don’t stop outside the waterpark, either. You’ve got a trio of family-friendly pools, a grown ups-only spot, plus a couple just for kids – it’s only fair.
TUI MAGIC LIFE Masmavi
The TUI MAGIC LIFE Masmavi, in Belek, turns the tap on aqua activities. This hotel clocks up a grand total of 10 pools, as well as an aquapark accessorised with a series of slides. We’re talking whizz-worthy tunnels and multi-lane racers where you can compete against your fellow sliders. Plus, the TUI MAGIC LIFE team host fun-filled daytime pool parties, and you can get stuck into some beach volleyball on the hotel’s own stretch of caramel-coloured sand. For tots, there’s a baby splash pool, too.
