It was a very bright Saturday when the 4th of us (Veni, Edwyn, Tiko and I) decided to take a short fun trip to somewhere outdoor and getting wet as well. At first we decided to go to Snowbay, it’s a waterpark (just like Waterboom or Waterbom) that claimed they have the largest wavepool in Jakarta — 45sq meter. Thou they don’t have many slides like I’ve enjoyed at Waterbom (check out my post), but the idea of hanging around a large wavepool, provoked us to go there. We arrived at Snowbay around 8.30 AM but the place open at 9 AM and it was so hot. The place barely has something shady such as trees or cabana or gazebo to take shelter if we (or other visitors) feel it’s too hot, it’s a big turn off for us (Veni and I has this strong hesitation to get tan just like almost any other Indonesian women hahaha). So we changed the plan and as soon as possible heading to Marina Pool at Pantai Indah Kapuk.
I’ve never been to the Marina pool, I even seldom visit the Pantai Indah Kapuk Area, but my friends told me it’s way more cooler with trees and located right beside the beach where you can see the sea. Me and my swimsuit jump in joy just to know we actually have another destination. It’s not really far from Snowbay, we drove for another 30 minutes via freeway and viola! We arrived there! Seriously, if you looking at the front area, you’ll think twice to get in there! It’s ugly! It’s like a building and you can hardly guess there’s a pool at the back of it! As I walk the entrance, I feel a little hesitation, but when I step on the pool side, I felt relieved, finally I can get wet!
The place is not really well-maintained (just like any other public place in Indonesia), but all facilities is just sufficient to hang around. They have Olympic size swimming pool, with trees around it, locker room, children pool with waterslide (only one thou), sufficient changing room, thou it’s too dark and look a little wrecked, and a lot of food stalls. Anyway, as long as I go with crazily-fun friends, I think all place is a cool place hahaha… Check out the pic! 🙂
