Background
Starpool is an Italian company specialising in design and realisation of wellness and spa facilities for 45 years. Located in Val di Fiemme – Trentino Alto-Adige – in the heart of Dolomites, Starpool was founded in 1975 by Ardelio Turri, whose son Riccardo is today leader and CEO.

Main products and services
Starpool is recognised as a leading company in spa design. Along with its business model based on careful planning, excellent products and outstanding services, Starpool is introducing its idea of wellbeing to the world. By creating a new way of designing spas, Starpool evolved from a craftmanship business to a multinational company with a stylish soul, able to create new ideas for the wellness market. Starpool offers a comprehensive design enriched by building and maintenance of functional tailor-made wellness paths. From ergonomic space design to materials selection, from installation to products, accessories and services, Starpool aims to be the ideal partner for creating high-performance wellness ecosystems. Since 2016, Starpool also offers a unique range of products for the regeneration of body and mind, thanks to its innovative “dry float” therapy.

USPs
What makes Starpool unique in the market is first and foremost our highly skilled team of professionals who manage spa projects. Our products are characterised by an attractive design with pure and essential lines, with a high focus on technology and functionality. Our research & development unit conceives and develops the best solutions to ensure high standards of quality, hygiene, innovative technologies and methods of use of any Starpool’s appliance. All the outcomes of R&D activities are patented and protected by industrial design registration, thus highlighting our focus on continuous innovation. Moreover, Starpool is the only company in the field that guarantees to the client a 360°service: not only high-level products, but also constant after-sales care, spa therapist training, and marketing-communication support.
