When you hear the name tranquility pool, a sense of peace comes over you. There is something so relaxing about a tranquil environment that makes you want to just take a moment to yourself. That is exactly the purpose of a tranquility pool. It is not meant as a pool where you get a lot of physical activity.
Luxury resorts often have a pool designated for adults only, a place designed for relaxation, reading, and enjoying a cocktail. Unlike pools that are suited for family swimming, which can become crowded and loud, these tranquility pools are the perfect spot for a peaceful dip or a poolside nap.
Unlike pools designed specifically for swimming and water sports activities, this type of custom addition to a backyard serves entertaining and relaxation purposes. Cascading waterfalls and other running water elements lend visual interest to the custom pool area, with their soothing sounds also contributing to the calm feeling. Other popular water features include stone fountains, some with elaborate carvings.
Often tranquility pools take advantage of the natural landscape, being situated in places where sunset views are best or where there are interesting natural features to highlight. Freeform shapes are popular as their softer edges distinguish this type from lap pools and other traditional styles and help them to blend into the natural environment. Incorporating a beach-style entry also contributes to the feel of the tranquility pool being a natural backyard element. With a gradual walk-in entry instead of pool steps, this allows people to walk on a slope into the shallow end of the pool as they would at the beach.
