Swimming Pool and Spa Combos
Design your swimming pool and spa combo
A swimming pool and spa combo is the ultimate luxury experience for your home, whether it is indoors or outdoors. Having a spa built into your pool is a healthy addition to your swimming experience and as leading Gold Coast pool builders we can provide you with the best design.
When you have a spa available, it offers you a relaxing, soothing, therapeutic alternative to hanging out in the pool. Not to mention a heated spa provides that relaxing alternative in the winter months! Let’s talk about some of the key aspects that go into creating the perfect pool and spa combo for your backyard oasis.
Pool and Spa Combo Materials
There are several different options that you can choose from for the material you craft your pool and spa combo with. Concrete construction is usually the best for the base of the pool and spa combo as it offers flexibility in design as opposed to fiberglass pools where options are limited. We recently wrote an article on Concrete vs Fibreglass explaining just that! However, you can add distinct features with stone or tile, for instance, to improve the overall appearance.
Pool and Spa Combo Features
When designing your pool and spa combo our team will work with you in providing unique features and elements that will make it stand out. Here are some of the unique features so that you have some ideas to plan out your perfect pool and spa combo.
Adding a waterfall feature to your pool creates an amazing experience through views and sounds created by the waterfall.
Swim up Bar
When you have a swim up bar or standalone bar set up near the pool area, it allows you to entertain and serve while staying close to family and guests. A pool bar for your backyard entertainment area is one of the ultimate luxury entertainment features for an pool and spa combo. Unique Lighting
Unique lighting is a popular feature for pool and spa combos because it creates a unique look that transforms the environment overall. It is also a great way to make your pool visible for those who want to use it at night time, without ruining the late night vibe. That’s right! A focal point not just during the day, but at night also.
Having an outdoor shower to accommodate your pool and spa combo is the perfect way to wash off when you’re ready to be finished. You can also use it when you are done working outside. When you use an outdoor shower, you can enjoy nature while washing off. No more running water through the house as you make the mad dash for the shower!
A fire pit is one of the most popular Gold Coast swimming pool water features of the year. Combining water and fire is a stunning way to create a dramatic aura in your pool and spa combo. They are also a great way to add some warmth and will allow you to dry off quickly.
A tanning ledge is a great way for you to kick back and get your tan on when you are enjoying your outdoor pool and spa combo. This popular pool element adds an ideal hotspot for sun bathing and easy supervision whilst the smaller kids are splashing away.
Automatic Pool Cover
Automatic pool covers are the perfect way for care free pool maintenance. Gone are the days of having to cover your pool manually, just flip a switch and the swimming pool is covered. Now you can keep out debris, reduce evaporation, and save time on maintenance.
Keep in mind that these are just the start of some amazing custom features that you can include in your pool and spa combo. Have a conversation with your builder about exactly which features are available to you and their recommendations on what features would be right for you. Swimming Pool and Spa Combo Shapes
With a custom pool and spa combo, you can create a unique shape for both the pool and the spa. With Bali Pools our concrete pools offer flexibility in design! Giving you the ultimate flexibility in terms of how you want to build it. Not only can you create the visual appeal that you desire, but you can also mold the shape to fit your indoor or outdoor area.
Popular Swimming Pool & Spa Combo Designs
The pool with attached spa is a popular option for those with a pool and spa combo. The pool and spa appear as if they are separate, but the spa is on the outside of the pool or adjacent to the pool.
There is a lot of flexibility with a pool with attached spa, so you can create it in any shape or size that you desire. You can design the spa to blend in with the pool’s design, or you can design the spa in an opposing shape so it stands out from the pool.
Pool With Integrated Spa
An integrated pool and spa combo has the spa located inside of the swimming pool, creating the ultimate all in one experience. It makes the spa appear to actually be part of the pool itself, which is a unique appearance and will make your pool and spa combo distinct.
You can have the spa be built either into the side, end, or corner of the pool to create the appearance you desire. You may think, how is an integrated spa even possible? The bodies of water in the pool and the pool are separated by a ‘small wall’ so it keeps the cold pool water out of the heated spa water.
The spa can be any shape or size that you desire, even though it is a part of the pool. You can finish the spa in whichever tile or pebblecrete colour you desire to create any unique look or style that you want.
To give you some ideas, you could create the spa section in a unique patterned tile to create contrast from the pool section. That way, the spa section stands out as its own unique focal point. Or you could create both the pool and spa sections with the same appearance so that the complete pool and spa combo blends together.
Swimming Pool with Spa Spill Over
A pool with a spillover spa features a raised spa that offers both an auditory and visual experience to you and your guests. A thin layer of water from the spa will spill over into the pool, hence the name, to create a waterfall effect. A spillover spa is the perfect way to add a touch of luxury to your pool and spa combo.
Pool with Detached Spa
While having a pool and spa attached to each other can amaze in some homes, there are some instances where it’s best to have the two entities separate.
For example, if it limits the area for your pool, you may be able to create a better and larger spa as a separate focal point. Another benefit of a separate spa is that it gives you more privacy if you seek to escape from the pool area and get some relaxation.
