Background
Starpool is an Italian company specialising in the 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 leader and CEO today.

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 artisanal business to a multinational company with a stylish soul, able to create ideas for the wellness market.

Starpool offers comprehensive designs 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-perfor- mance wellness ecosystems.

Since 2016, Starpool has also offered 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 attractive design with pure, essential lines and a focus on technology and functionality.

Our research and development unit conceives and develops the best solutions to ensure high standards of quality, hygiene, innovative technologies and methods of use of Starpool’s appliances. All the outcomes of R&D activities are patented and protected by industrial design registration, thus highlighting our focus on continuous innovation.

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-communications support.

Top clients
In its 45 years of activity, Starpool has become a quality brand for the wellness offer of hotels such as Grand Park Hotel Rovinj in Croatia, Mandarin and Armani Hotel in Milan, Lido Palace in Riva del Garda, Amanyangyun in Shangai, Hôtel du Cap-Eden-Roc in Antibes and Mulia Resort & Villas in Bali.

Starpool is in a partnership with Virgin Club all over Italy and it has also realised the spa of Clinique La Prairie in Switzerland.

Starpool also “sails” with MSC and Costa Crociere, and, with its Home collections, its professional know-how lands right at home.

Where in the world?
Starpool has distributors in more than 26 countries in the world. We boast over 4.000 spa installations in 57 different countries.

Future plans
Wellness trends are changing and Starpool is ready to be a leading company in the sector. Open-air products, hygiene and cutting-edge technology are just a few of the innovations the company is presenting in 2020.

Who’s who?
Riccardo Turri, CEO; Francesco Rinaldini, export manager; Massimo Libretti, operation manager; Paolo Tranquillini, spa consultant.
