Ways to Transform Your Pool Into A Place To Unwind

The summer period has officially kicked into gear leaving most of us a little weary and in need of a break.

Those lucky enough to indulge in the great Aussie tradition of a post-Christmas holiday don’t have too long to wait. But what about those who have to stay at home?

Thanks to Blue Haven Pools now you can get away from it all without even stepping outside your front gate.

In today’s busy society, our home is our sanctuary. People don’t want to have to go to a day spa or a resort to relax – they want to have access to that at home. The latest pool designs from Blue Haven incorporate a level of luxury to give owners a sense of Zen.

Regardless of space, size, design needs or budget, Blue Haven can help create your very own oasis at home.

Set the scene

If you already have a swimming pool, there are a number of small changes you can make to transform it from simply a place to cool off into a place to relax and unwind.

Lush landscaping and accessories such as water features, cushions and inviting poolside furnishings are a great way to increase the relaxation factor in your swimming pool. Don’t forget to create a place with shade either under existing roofing or with an umbrella so that you can safely laze away by the pool.

Remonda Martinez, Managing Director of Blue Haven Pools and Spas, says even the simplest of swimming pool areas can embrace this season’s most exciting alfresco trends to create an oasis at home.

“Recent times have seen a lot of Australian’s forgo the ‘big back-yard’ for the convenience of city living,” says Remonda.

“Despite the decrease in size of outdoor areas, people are still ultilising the space in the same way, incorporating swimming pools and spas for the ultimate in relaxation, entertainment and style.” 


A spa is a great way to get away from it all – a place to unwind and rejuvenate. Blue Haven Spas have one of Australia’s largest range of spas and swimming spas that are sure to create a feeling of relaxation in your outdoor space. Just ten minutes in a spa enhances the body’s circulation, promotes relaxation and wellness and reduces muscle aches and pains. It’s also a great place to enjoy time together as a couple or a family. Blue Haven’s range of swim spas provide the best of both worlds, offering a place to swim and exercise as well as a place to unwind and relax.

Create an entertainment hub

A resort style swimming pool isn’t complete without a cabana or swim up bar. Cabanas are relatively inexpensive these days, yet add a whole lot of value to your home. Set near the pool, a cabana can provide a space for family and guests to shower or go to the bathroom and change into their bathers, or somewhere to prepare and store food and drinks without returning to the house. It can also house a shady area for guests to lounge by the pool. Outdoor kitchens are another great way to bring the indoors out and extend your poolside entertaining area. Most come complete with barbecue, fridge, sink, bench space and even a fireplace to ensure it can be used year-round. A wet or sunken bar alongside the swimming pool fitted out with comfy lounges, bar area and tables it is another way to create a resort style atmosphere around your swimming pool.
