The date of the 30th January 2010 has been set for the opening of the West Sands resort water park “Splash Jungle”
This eagerly and much needed attraction shows the shift to families now holidaying in Phuket, making the Island an attractive place to raise families.
With its perfect climate, superb schools like the new Phuket Academy, or the more established British International School no wonder the villa real estate market and larger condominiums are great investments both to live in or attract the longer term rental market.
And what could be better than cooling off in a water park complete with lazy river, slides, wave pool and spa section.
Maybe this is why on Tuesday night a much loved visitor decided West Sands Resort at Mai Khao beach was the best place to raise her off spring .
This particular visitor was a rare and huge Giant leatherback Turtle which only makes the journey to lay eggs every 25 years. With two earlier reports of other Turtles laying eggs in Pang Na its certainly good news to even know these magnificent creatures are still out there, but I think a visit to Phuket every 25 years is way too long apart.
