Pool with spa: The trend
In the exciting world of pool design and construction, the integration of a spa inside the pool has been gaining popularity over the years, offering owners the possibility, on the one hand, of not doing without anything and, on the other hand, , to combine the swimming experience with the relaxation provided by a customized hydromassage area.
In fact, this trend in pool design has as its main objective maximizing the functionality of spaces in Water Architecture projects.
In this post you will discover what advantages this integrated pool and spa system offers and, above all, what are the most popular designs when it comes to including a hydromassage area inside the pool without sacrificing the most aesthetic part.
Let’s go there!
Advantages of swimming pools with integrated built-in jacuzzi
Luxury and Comfort Experience
Imagine soaking in the soft bubbles of your own jacuzzi while enjoying the crystal clear waters of your pool. Integrating a spa not only adds a touch of elegance, but also provides a unique experience of relaxation and comfort.
In the same way that you can enjoy a complete swimming experience (although this will depend on the length of the pool), you can, at another time, take advantage of the hydromassage seats or jets to massage specific areas or simply relax.
It’s not just about luxury; The therapeutic benefits of a hot tub are amazing. The combination of hydromassage and hot water can relieve stress, improve circulation and relieve muscle pain. Your pool will become a haven for health and well-being.
Multifunctionality of space for a Water Architecture project
One of the main benefits when opting for a pool with an integrated jacuzzi is the maximum use of space. In small spaces this idea makes the area to cool off also a spa and in large spaces you can include the hydromassage area at one end, so as not to impede swimming and have two functionalities in one.
In another section of this post we will analyze how we can integrate the spa into the pool so that it looks exactly as you had imagined.
Increased Aesthetic Value of the Pool
Aesthetics matter, and integrating a spa not only adds functionality but also a truly impressive visual touch of luxury. The combination of water features offers a unique design that elevates the appeal of your outdoor space.
How to integrate the spa into a pool: variety of designs
The truth is that the way to integrate a hydromassage area into a built-in pool is truly unlimited. Generally, the pool designer will evaluate a series of factors:
- Available space: m2, layout and orientation.
- Regular pool users: family, children, older or young couples.
- Regular use of the pool: swimming, rest, relaxation, games, therapy, etc.
- Pool surrounding area: Are there changing rooms, toilets, rest areas nearby? What route will the user take?
Once these details have been analyzed and having listened to the client’s needs and desires, the designer will make a first design sketch with the proposal, which will be tweaked until the final result is reached.
Built-in jacuzzi integrated into the pool
Regardless of what has been said above, you should keep in mind that there are everything from classic models to more contemporary designs and a wide range of options to integrate into your pool.
Among the most popular options are:
- The spa integrated into one side of the pool, next to the access stairs, either open or with walls that separate the spaces.
- The jacuzzi inserted at the end of the pool, especially when the pool is quite long.
- The hydrotherapy area integrated into the pool platform, to receive the message while lying down.
- The spa “camouflaged” on the pool access stairs. Normally a longer step is left so that the user can sit and enjoy the hydrotherapy whenever they want without losing space inside the pool.
In all these cases, the builder usually makes a work bench covered with the same material as the pool shell so that it is very integrated with the whole.
Hydromassage jet systems
For a personalized experience, it is very interesting to include, in addition to the hydromassage jet systems, a water waterfall and cervical cannon. This option is only possible when the spa is on one side of the pool or at one end, since some space is needed to include these elements and not “overload” the space.
Adjust the intensity and direction of the jets to create your own personalized relaxation oasis.
Pool with spa and countercurrent: Two in one
Another highly demanded option in large pools is the integration, not only of the hydrotherapy area within the pool, but of a countercurrent swimming system.
In this way, the pool maximizes its possibilities and can be used to cool off, for games and fun, to swim at the highest level and to relax or relieve specific areas of the body.
The only essential requirement is to carefully calculate, in the design of the pool, that there is sufficient length for swimming and for the jacuzzi area. Both areas must have enough space so as not to be unused.
Elevated hydromassage area
Another alternative to take into account and which is very aesthetic is to design the built-in spa so that it looks higher than the level of the pool, whether inside the pool itself or attached to it.
The advantage of this system is that it allows you to independently control all parameters: temperature, lighting, purification, etc.
Custom and Luxury Options for Spas Integrated into a Pool
If you’re looking for the ultimate in luxury, explore custom options with premium features. From LED lighting to integrated music systems, there are hundreds of options available for your in-pool hot tub area.
What to take into account when integrating a spa into your pool
Before embarking on installation, we recommend that you carefully evaluate the available space with your builder. Including a hydromassage area within the pool requires meticulous planning to ensure that it is harmoniously integrated into the project and that it is an element that adds and does not subtract from the final set.
In-pool spa ergonomics
One of the most common mistakes is to value the aesthetics of the jacuzzi more than its comfort. At GodoPools we always carry out an ergonomic study so that the spa area inside your pool is very comfortable, there are no dangerous/uncomfortable angles and we take maximum care of the position of the massage points.
In terms of ergonomics, not only the position and physical support must be considered, but also the accessibility and layout of key elements, such as control panels and hydromassage jets.
Taking each and every one of these aspects into account we can achieve a harmonious space that invites absolute relaxation and promotes physical and mental health.
Choosing materials for a spa integrated into the pool
Por lo general, si la zona de jacuzzi está completamente integrada en el vaso de la piscina, elegiremos el mismo material de revestimiento que la piscina en sí misma.
Generally, if the jacuzzi area is completely integrated into the pool shell, we will choose the same coating material as the pool itself.
Only in those cases in which the hydromassage area is displaced, isolated or elevated is when we can opt for a different material, of a different color or texture or even of a different type, to differentiate both spaces.
Regarding the type of material chosen, you should keep in mind that there are natural materials that retain heat better, such as natural stone, which are also available in different textures, to adapt to areas such as a jacuzzi. Ideally, the spa coating should be soft in contact with the skin, but at the same time not slippery, to avoid accidents.
If, in your case, you are looking for a personalized and highly tailored design, we recommend asking about EPS modular systems. At GodoPools we have been designing custom spas inside the pool for many years with this system, which is still very unknown to many builders and architects. It is a completely moldable and light material, which can be integrated into the pool shell to house a spa and which can also be covered with any material.
A very aesthetic and personalized option for this type of EPS spas is the mosaic, since it allows you to include personalized decorations, such as borders, geometric or floral prints.
From the electrical connection or the location of the engine room, to adequate ventilation, technical considerations are essential. Consult with a pool construction expert to ensure your installation is safe and efficient.
This will ensure that your hot tub is safe and comfortable for all users. In addition, the ergonomic study also includes a thorough review of the massage points, thus ensuring that their position is ideal for greater benefit for users.
Conclusion: In which cases is it a good idea to opt for a pool with integrated hydromassage?
In short, integrating a spa into the pool is a magnificent idea that goes beyond luxury; It is an investment in well-being, functionality and the aesthetics of the entire project.
Of course, it is not an option that can be applied in all projects, since there are certain limitations, but it is an option to consider.
Evaluate your needs, consider the benefits and make an informed decision to enjoy the perfect combination of relaxation and style.
