BonaVista Pools builds international award–winning pools in the GTA — Using water to create a stunning backyard getaway all year round —

March 27, 2015 – BonaVista Pools won three coveted awards at the United Aqua Group’s 2014 Awards of Distinction competition, including Zodiac Pool of the Year, Spa with Pool and Water Feature with Pool. At the annual conference in Fajardo, Puerto Rico, more than 100 finalists competed across 27 categories. Winners were selected from this elite group using strict criteria by outside judges from within the pool industry.

“These two BonaVista winning projects demonstrate how we work with our clients to create an oasis in any backyard space. From small swim spas to larger pools, we work with our clients to make their dreams a reality,” said Melissa Brown, President of BonaVista Pools.

The smaller pool, operational year round and located in Richmond Hill, received the Water Feature with Pool Award. Created for a family of six, this pool conveniently fits into a small urban backyard. Whether family members want to do cannonballs, swim lengths or wind down after a long day, the pool, with attached hot tub, offers something for everyone. But it is the Fastlane 5 hp swim current recessed in the pool wall along with the cascading water from the raised hot tub, natural gas fire feature and LED star lights on the pool floor that secured top honours for BonaVista.

“Water has the amazing ability to engage the senses. Listening to the soothing sound of the water cascading combined with the twinkling lights and stunning fire feature creates an escape for the homeowners,” said Melissa Brown, BonaVista Pools. “It is this oasis, just outside your back door, that provides our clients with the resort experience at home every day of the week.”

The larger pool, located in Oakville, took two separate awards – Zodiac Pool of the Year and Spa with Pool. This pool and spa combo was built on an expansive property beside the homeowners’ tennis court. With the amenities of a luxury hotel re-created in their backyard, this active family now enjoy a private membership at their very own sports club.

“The winners this year exemplified the best in pool design and construction,” said Lee Rincon, chief operating officer of United Aqua Group. “We are proud to have such accomplished companies as members of our organization.”
