Water Park Planning Tailored Specifically to Resort Settings

As the leading expert in water park design/build we understand what works when it comes to creating compelling recreational aquatic settings that stand out in the resort market and make an impact with guests.

And with clients including Hyatt, Hilton, Gaylord, Waldorf Astoria, Westin, and more our design/build projects have been hard at work and well tested for successful proof-of-concept.

Thinking Beyond the Edge of the Pool

When you work with ADG to design & build your Resort Waterfront, we won’t ask you what kind of pool you want.  We won’t try to sell you on the latest play structure or slide.  And we won’t try to convince you to add features you don’t need.

What we will discuss is desired guest experience, differentiation, brand image, marketability, and revenue-generating opportunities that will help you increase capacity, ADR, F&B sales, length of stay, repeat visitation and more.

From bright and colorful water rides to sleek and sophisticated adult settings, ADG works with your team to create the type of aquatic recreational setting that works for your brand, your property, your guests, and your business goals.

It’s so much more than just “the pool”, it’s the entire experience.


Concept Designs & Layouts

By taking into consideration every aspect of guest interaction, both in the water and out, ADG works with your team to develop the perfect indoor or outdoor aquatic setting

Working in conjunction with your architects, landscape designers, brand managers, etc., we help you to analyze and evaluate every aspect of the aquatic features to ensure that amenities and attractions meet the needs of the property – from allocating enough space for decking and landscape needs, to the placement of guest facilities and access paths for guests and staff, to food and beverage accessibility and service.

They can also increase ADR by as much as $125, making the addition of an indoor water park both a weather-proof and recession-proof amenity!  With guaranteed 80 degrees and the ability to brand and design the setting to match your resort, an indoor water park may be the ideal option for increasing your bed base and drawing people to your property year round.
