Thailand’s First Professional Underwater Studio Vana Nava Hua Hin’s 20th Attraction

| September 23, 2015
Hua Hin – Prachuap Khiri Khan: Only 10 months after the successful opening of Vana Nava Hua Hin waterpark, the splashing fun expands. The exciting adrenaline rush as you zoom down thrilling waterslides such as The Abyss™, Boomerango™, AqauLoop™ and Freefall is now overflowing into the 20th attraction, VANADIO – Thailand’s first professional underwater studio.

Vana Nava Hua Hin, in conjunction with Canon Marketing (Thailand) Co.,Ltd., has marked the opening of the country’s first professional underwater studio inside the Water Jungle Zone on 14th September 2015 with the “Splash-tasy Gallery” which features 5 top Thai celebrities: leading male star, Pakorn “Boy” Chatborirak; Miss Thailand World 2014, Nonthawan “Maeya” Thongleng; the famous French Muay Thai kick boxer, Antoine Pinto; chic internet idol and model, Thanida “Pimtha” Manalertruengkul; and the internet avatar idol, Maeban Mee Nuad (Housewife with a Moustache), Anuruk “Bew” Cholmunee. Each frame represents their artistic styles – but taken under the water! The “Splash-tasy Gallery” underwater photography is located in front of VANADIO and will be exhibited from 14th until 18th October 2015.


Get into this new trend and choose your own style – be picturesque under water!  VANADIO is the first-of-its-kind professional underwater studio in Thailand. It has strengthened the positioning of Vana Nava Hua Hin as a remarkable and unique destination. Take a deep breath for fun underwater photo captures and full HD VDO clips, solo or with friends, making great souvenirs and wonderful memories with loved ones. It is also the perfect idea for a unique wedding shoot that will make you smile for a lifetime.


Be as creative as you want to be with your pose and our props. If that’s not enough, use the ChromaKey technology to express their magical features. Choose from our 10 stunning background graphic themes and conceptual multi-screens such as Fashion, Mermaid, Angel, Witch, Dracula, Pirate, Diver, Sailor, Thai costume and Wedding, designed by professional artists from the Canon Thailand team, led by Mr. Taweechai Jaowattana together with Mr. Chaiyasith Junjuerdee and Mr. Weraphong Chaparangsri, also known as ShutterV. Every photo comes with a VANADIO signature frame designed by Mr. Taweesak “Lolay” Srithongdee, designer of the mascot Vana and Nava and creator of the Magical Land tale.


“We are delighted to highlight another fantastic attraction which is the first of its kind in Thailand and reinforces Vana Nava Hua Hin, unique position as the leading international water park in Thailand that offers a unique experience. The launch of our 20th attraction, the VANADIO, Thailand’s First Professional Underwater Studio, is a fruition of the successful collaboration between Vana Nava Hua Hin and Canon Thailand, our photography service provider in the water park since the opening. Now, after we have fine-tuned the concept, trained our lifeguards, tested the quality of the water and thoroughly guaranteed the safety with our General Manager, Mr. Michael R. Fijas, who helps us tremendously with his extensive experience as Chairman of the World Waterpark Association Safety Committee, and of course the professional photography technology and techniques from Canon,  I am confident that VANADIO will be a great fillip to our water park, attract additional groups of visitors as well as appeal to returning visitors, while enhancing our world-class experience for everyone,” says                 Ms. Proudputh Liptapanlop, Managing Director of Proud Real Estate, the owning company of Vana Nava Hua Hin.


Mr. Warin Tantipongpanich, Vice President of Product Group of Canon Marketing (Thailand), is deservedly proud of this invention. “At Canon, as a World Class Leader in Photography and Printing Technology, we are very pleased that Vana Nava Hua Hin has accepted our collaboration in creating the first professional underwater studio, VANADIO. We selected the best and latest version of our camera, the DSLR EOS 5DSr, and the PIXMA iX6770 Ink Jet Printer, which supports actual human size and panorama printing, to deliver the visitors’ best ever moment to remember at Vana Nava Hua Hin. We strongly believe VANADIO will attract people to this new fun option of photo shooting in an unusual atmosphere and spread the trend.”


VANADIO is accessible to swimmers of all ages. A dressing room with a wardrobe of over 10 fashionable costumes is available for rent ranging from smart to fancy and wedding. The photo price starts from THB 380.-, including artist Lolay’s specially designed frame, to a fun and professional photo package pack inclusive of makeup and hair stylist services. Hours of operation follow that of the Water Jungle Zone, 10:00 am – 6:00 pm.
