A Spa Island
Imagine walking over a bridge or over “floating” stepping stones into a spa that is right in the middle of the pool. Placing a spa within the pool is stunning in itself, but you can add even more interest to a spa island with a small lounging rock or floating deck with just enough room for one or two people to soak up the sun.
An Elevated Spa
Whether it’s your own spa island or adjacent to the pool, elevating the spa would add a fresh dimension to an otherwise flat pool area. It gives soakers a new perspective on the landscape—and what kid (young or old) can resist the fun of feeling like the king of a hot tub castle that looks out over a gorgeous lagoon.
A Shared Bar
For same-level hot tubs and pools, add a shared bar so that both soakers and swimmers can enjoy a beverage together. Be sure to install underwater bar stools if the hot tub is situated at the deeper end of the pool. You can even tie the bar in with an outdoor kitchen by using the same countertop material.
You know you want one…. It’s possible by having a slide installed from an elevated hot tub into the pool for a truly invigorating experience. Make sure the steps out of the pool to the hot tub are conveniently placed so that you can enjoy this fun feature multiple times.
A Spillover Spa
A spillover spa is a fun and dramatic way to connect a hot tub and a pool with a cascading waterfall. The sound of falling water enhances the pool atmosphere even when the hot tub is not in use. And this water feature will look absolutely amazing when it’s lit up at night with colorful landscape lights.
A Boulder-lined Spa
When surrounded by boulders—and especially if elevated above the pool—a hot tub can seem to magically transform into a hot springs. Add a waterfall, some lush plantings among the rocks for a natural feel, and you will never want to leave!
A Spa Under the Waterfall
Tuck the spa under a waterfall that cascades into the pool, for a magical effect. Add landscape lights, and create an inviting grotto for secret midnight soaks or to really and truly unplug from the world.
A Connected Spa
Visually connect your spa to the pool by placing it at the same level and using a minimal barrier at or just above the water’s surface, to allow some splash-over.
