‘You have not been to Iloilo if you have not been to Waterworld’, these are the words of Mr. Felix Tiu, the person behind the two (2) hectare property known as Waterworld Iloilo, which will officially open to the public today, December 16, 2016. Waterworld Iloilo is the first waterpark in the Visayas and the first in the world to be powered by solar energy.
Waterworld Iloilo offers extreme water rides, 17 slides for kids and kids at heart, a 222 meter long lazy river, a water play area for toddlers, an open and covered waterpark, all manned by 30 certified lifeguards. ‘Safety is our top priority’ Tiu adds. The said waterpark also offers automated lockers, aircon suites, themed rooms, and lounge chairs.
Waterworld Iloilo aims to help Iloilo City increase tourism arrivals by creating a destination place in the City of Love. Aside from that, it aims to increase job opportunities and improve lives, help the city government’s tax revenue by attracting people from other places, improve branding and profile of Iloilo City as a tourist destination for both local and international visitors, and become a travel mart for tourists to visit before they go home. Alongside Waterworld Iloilo is EON Centennial Resort Hotel which will be marking its 10th anniversary this year.
