Child having vomiting due to dehydration, no fever or other symptoms, refuses to drink water. What can be done?

my son appears to have gotten dehydrated today, he didnt drink enough throughout the day and just vomited. He has no fever and no other symptoms. What should I do to help him rehydrate fast? He refuses to drink anything but water, and only little tiny sips. Will this be enough to hydrate him as long as he doesn t vomit anymore? Thanks

You can try a 'tastier' liquid like Neembu paani (lime water), Coconut water, Carbonated beverages after removing the fizz, gatorade etc. to see if his intake improves.
Avoid excessively sweet liquids like juices though,
