Brisbane, the most populous city in the Australian state of Queensland, is a popular tourist destination named after the Brisbane River on which it is located – which in turn was named after Scotsman Sir Thomas Brisbane, a Governor of New South Wales of 19th-century.
Located in the heart of the city and near Central Station, the Hilton Brisbane hotel showcases modern rooms with stunning city views. Among its services, it offers an award-winning modern cuisine, 2,500 sq. m. of meeting space, catering for up to 1,000 people, tennis court, fitness center and a heated outdoor swimming pool.
In fact, on the eighth floor of the building, Myrtha Pools built an outdoor pool, designed to guarantee guests relaxation and leisure moments. The 13.3×5.9 m pool, built using Myrtha Structural Ceramic technology, has a depth that reaches 1.2m and is equipped with mosaic lane markings to allow efficient training sessions for all those who want to keep fit by swimming.
The relaxing pool area consists of a comfortable step extended along one of the two long sides of the pool, which becomes a space where to sunbathing or chilling and chatting with friends.
The pool at the Hilton Hotel in Brisbane won both the gold and the bronze award at SPASA QLD Awards 2016 in the categories Commercial Innovative pool and Commercial pool above $250,000.
