The most exciting attraction is definitely the Inflatable Island which is about 4,500 sqm. Gigantic and cute inflatables are all over the place. The Unicorn Island is the starting point. You begin with the amazing rainbow walk leading to the inflatable playground. You can swing and cross bridges. Everything was so challenging! It features the Wrecking Ball and the Leap of Faith among others. The most epic of them all is called The Big One. It was very exciting and thrilling to try everything. It was so fun to flip, tumble, slide, jump and fall. It was such an exhilarating experience!
Animal Cabanas & Floating Zoos
Located by the floating playground, there is also the animal cabanas that can accommodate a maximum of 6 people all at once. You can lounge and take photos in here. Moreover, there’s the Floating Zoo that consists of the cutest animal floaters such as unicorns and flamingos make the perfect spot to shoot for Instagram photos! It was so much fun!
Happy Jungle Lounge
After spending a tiring time in the inflatable playground, you may chill and wind down at the Happy Jungle Lounge. It is one of the most perfect spots to shoot your OOTDs and selfies. It consists of rainbow-colored trees and the magnificent pink pool. You may reserve a daybed in the Rainbow Jungle for Php 1,500. It comes with a whole day access pass to the Pink Pool, 2 towel rentals, and the signature Tampipi feast. This is already good for 4 persons. This is one of my favorite spots since it is the place to relax and hang out. Plus, the view of the ocean is really calming.
Nothing beats a beach getaway experience than having that much needed refreshing dip in the pool. The Pink Pool is not only refreshing, it also boasts of the most millennial colors and the most hip spots to shoot content! Make sure to book in advance as the capacity of the Pink Pool is limited only to hotel guests and Happy Jungle loungers only.
The Bali Lounge which is obviously inspired by the side beach lounges in Bali is filled with vividly-colored umbrellas and bean bags. Pink and purple umbrellas and bean bags plus a glass of fresh fruit juice? The Bali Lounge is definitely the perfect spot to chill. The spot is relaxing indeed, but the best part is that you get to take nice photos while you chill and have a good time. I had so much fun trying out poses and shooting every corner of the Bali Lounge.
Mango Mama Restaurant
Even the restaurant is very Instagram-worthy. The interiors are filled with the cutest flamingo decorations. It feels like you are transported to the colorful food stalls in Bali. The food was very tasteful, too! They serve appetizers, snacks, and full meals.
