Resort Waterfront
Aquatic Development Group announces the opening of JadeWaters™ Resort Waterfront at the Hilton Anatole in Dallas,Texas. IN THE NEWS | AQUATIC DEVELOPMENT GROUP | August 24, 2016

Dallas, Texas. This brand new high-capacity, upscale facility features a 4,000 sq. ft. leisure pool, a 7,000 sq. ft. beach-entry family pool, a kids’ play area and a lazy river with a sun deck for lounge chairs.

The Hilton Anatole, which has been operating for ten years and occupies forty-five acres of land, was looking to add a unique water-based amenity that would attract leisure guests and families during the traditionally quieter summer months.

“ADG proved a valuable partner in bringing our vision for the hotel’s new resort pool complex to life,” commented the hotel’s Public Relations Manager, Brooke Hoffman. “They worked to understand our goals and suggested enhancements to the project based on their significant expertise and thorough understanding of our target customer.
JadeWatersTM was chosen over other pool complexes owing to its potential for customization and its ability to handle large visitor numbers. The varied offering at the new resort is not only expected to attract more summer visitors, in particular families, but to keep them coming back, year after year.

Designed and built by ADG, this $15 million dollar expansion was created with a modern-Asian influence that perfectly mirrors the unique Asian inflection found throughout the existing hotel and features many new pieces of Asian art, adding to the already impressive collection found throughout the hotel.


“The resulting design not only suited our goals, but preserved the integrity of our existing sculpture park, incorporating many of our existing trees and features in to the finished product,” added Hoffman. “We’re very happy with the finished product.”

Additional features in the new Jade Waters include:

  • Two 180 ft Winding Water Slides
  • Seating for 800+
  • Event Lawns
  • Private Cabanas and Daybeds
  • Swim-up bar
  • Outdoor restaurant
  • Additional heated pools and spas
