Australians’ love affair with all things Bali is very much evident in the landscaping and design of many modern swimming pools. Darker pool interiors, lots of stone and the popular cabana appear constantly and frequently win prizes at the annual Swimming Pool and Spa Association awards of excellence.

The gold award for fibreglass swimming pools under $40,000 went to Barrier Reef Pools with an East Fremantle entry displaying a strong Balinese theme.
