Portopiccolo is an ambitious and wide-ranging project; an eco-sustainable village built in the heart of the Gulf of Trieste, according to an environmental rehabilitation and urban regeneration project which led to the complete recovery of the former Sistiana Bay quarry, abandoned in the seventies. Embraced from behind by cliffs and overlooking the most crystal-clear waters of the Upper Adriatic, it includes 454 elegant, sea-view residences, a harbour with 116 moorings, one of the best Italian beach-clubs, some boutiques and 10 bars and restaurants, as well as the only 5-star hotel a SPA with personalized treatment paths. Inside the SPA we can see this huge In-&- Out swimming pool.

The building containing the pool was built some years before the construction of today's Spa, on the imprint of another project. Therefore, pool designers had to develop a great engineering work to adapt the construction drawings of the pool to the pre-existing conditions. The final result is a pool of irregular shape, with a surface of about 300 square meters divided into various areas:

1) Children area 50cm deep

2) Relaxation adults area of depth varying from 50cm to 140cm complete with:

  • 6 effervescent beds,
  • 9 hydro-massage stations with two nozzles, one on the lumbar level and one on the back calves,
  • 2 cervical waterfalls,
  • 6 effervescent barrels,

3) External area with:

  • 4 effervescence steel chaise longue,
  • 2 cervical fountains
  • 6 hydromassage stations with a lumbar nozzle and plantar effervescence

The pool is illuminated by 16 LED spotlights in the internal area and 10 LED spotlights in the outdoor area.
