Whether you prefer to take in sunset in a bean bag in Seminyak, catch a wave in Uluwatu or sun yourself on the black sands of Lovina, Bali's beaches can't be missed.
Sometimes, however, you need a break from the salt and sand. Fortunately, Bali is equally renowned for its swimming pools. All around the island, holiday goers are spoiled for choice when it comes to stunning pools to take a dip in, and the best pools are all made of the same material: green sukabumi natural stone.
The best pools are all made of the same material: green sukabumi natural stone.
Why does green sukabumi make such great swimming pools?
Green sukabumi is a unique natural stone that can only be found in the Sukabumi regency of West Java, although designers and aquascapers from around the world have long imported this beautiful natural stone.
Green sukabumi has a gorgeous, jade colour, which looks great above and below water. Additionally, green sukabumi boasts a number of other characteristics that lend themselves quite well to swimming pool and poolside applications.
Not the least of these is that green sukabumi actually has the unique ability to purify water. Zeolites – which form when volcanic ash spills into the ocean and meets saltwater – naturally occur in green sukabumi. These special minerals absorb calcium, magnesium, phosphates and ammonium, which can be harmful to a swimming pool's water quality.
Designers also prefer to build swimming pools of green sukabumi because it:
- Is slip resistant
- Isn't prone to scratching
- Doesn't absorb heat easily
- Has a low rate of absorption
