THE SAMAWATI SPRINGS POOL AT KIDANI VILLAGE
Guests at Kidani can use either.
Some prefer Uzima Springs, despite the distance, for being a little more verdant, or for having a broader range of quick-service dining available.
But Samawati Springs is a great pool, and of course much more convenient.
Samawati is not the kind of low-amenity quiet pool that you will find near some other DVC resorts, but rather comes with all the pluses that you’ll find at any main pool.
My favorite feature, though, is simpler–it’s the vista from the zero entry side. I love the sky and trees…
Here’s the pool from another angle–this shows the smaller of the two slides here.
A couple of shots of the larger pool slide:
There’s also two hot tubs, one by the pool deck…
… and a more secluded one on an upper level:
Nearby is a water play area…
…the water play area at night…
…a playground for kids…
…and a ping pong table.
There’s also a bar. It has a real menu–albeit not with a lot of options. See the bottom of the image (click it to enlarge it):
Near the bar is a refillable mug station.
Also in the pool area, in an upper level, is the spa.
Kidani guests are also welcome at the Uzima Springs pool at Jambo House, and can walk, take a theme park bus (check with the driver first to see if the bus is stopping at Jambo) or take the couretsy van at the guest drop-off point.
