Do you enjoy staying at spa resorts on your vacations? Are you ready to bring that experience home and create a spa resort pool in your backyard? It is not difficult to transform a standard pool plan into a plan that closely resembles that of a spa resort with just a few important design features. As you create a spa resort pool in your backyard, consider the following options.
Tiki Torches and a Fire Pit
Tiki torches are a fun outdoor accessory. They are readily available at big box stores and large hardware stores that have outdoor departments. You can select the size and quantity of tiki torches that best fits your yard. Many people also choose to include a fire pit in close proximity to a pool to offer the full spa resort experience. Look for backyard fire pits with a natural stone or wood aesthetic.
Waterfalls and Fountains
There are a number of different fountains or bubblers on the market with something for every pool owner. Most likely your options will be determined by the size and shape of your pool. Do you have the space and the budget for a waterfall or even multiple waterfalls? You will wow people at every backyard party with pool waterfalls.
Wading Pool or Spa Area
One aspect of spa resort pools that many people enjoy and cannot find elsewhere is a wading area. Why not include this versatile, highly sought after pool feature with your own spa resort pool? This separate space provides a safe play area for children, a cozy setting for smaller groups, and an intimate environment for couples.
Large Rocks and a Natural Deck or Patio Surface
Many spa resort pools prominently feature groups of large rocks or a grotto as well as a natural stone deck or patio surface. Large rocks lend themselves naturally to multiple pool levels that can include waterfalls and stairways. There are many popular pool deck and patio designs that are available in stone. Make sure to select a deck surface that is cool to the touch on hot days and is slip resistant.
Bridges and Stairways
Do you have the space for larger pool features? Do you have a pool with multiple levels (i.e. a waterfall that flows into the main pool)? Bridges and stairways are perfect components for these spa resort pools. Both features come in wood, concrete, and stone.
