The 2016 SPASA Australia National Awards of Excellence were held with great fanfare on Thursday night August 18 at the SPLASH! Pool & Spa Trade Show.

The highly coveted award of National Pool of the Year went to Aquarius Pools from Victoria for their innovative elevated lap pool featuring a series of windows into the home.

The Retailer of the Year award went to Poolside Shoalhaven from New South Wales, while the Spa of the Year went to Enkipools from Victoria.

Product of the Year went to national supplier AstralPool Australia for their Viron Connect Wireless Gateway, while the Sustainable Product of the Year went to Placid Pools from Queensland for their Eco Splash.

The awards presentation was held in the Jupiters Ballroom – the space previously occupied by the main hall of SPLASH!, now made free by the move across the road to the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre.

A lively band played up-tempo classics, keeping the large audience entertained, and setting the scene for an evening of dancing after the awards and dinner were completed. Many revellers continued into the early hours of the morning while some took advantage of Jupiter’s facilities to continue partying until dawn.

The full list of the awards is below. For images and more information, go to the SPASA Australia award page.
