Bali is truly the Island of Gods, with its beautiful beaches, mountains, and magnificent culture. But one that is usually missed is the wonderful Bali green stone pools.
Just like the rich greens of the mountains, aquascapes in Bali use similarly rich natural stone Bali tiles. Natural stone tiles, including lava stone tiles, are used to enhance the beauty of the pools. However, the greenstone tiles are usually the ones that stand out.
For inspiration for your next project, look at 3 of the best pools that mainly use green Bali stone pool tiles!
3 Best Bali Green Stone Pools
1. The Hanging Gardens of Bali
The mix of green Bali stone tiles and black lava stone tiles make the pools in The Hanging Gardens of Bali stand out. The color difference creates a great contrast that looks both sleek and elegant at the same time, without being too in-the-face about it.
Overlooking the dense forest, the pools become a great centerpiece for this five-star establishment.
Amankila is a part of the Aman Group, which always aims to take inspiration from its surroundings when it comes to its designs. Thus it is no wonder that Amankila also uses natural stone Bali tiles for its pool.
The lush greens of palm trees at the beach seem to be its main inspiration.
This can be seen in the brilliant emerald green color of the pool, making use of the naturally green Bali stone tiles.
3. Sofitel Bali Nusa Dua
While Amankila takes inspiration from the beachside palm trees, the pool in Sofitel Bali Nusa Dua seems to be inspired by the Balinese rivers. The pool takes turns, surrounded by lush trees, providing shade from the sun.
Sofitel Bali Nusa Dua seems to use a combination of green Bali stone tiles, creating an elegantly natural look to the pool. With the reflection of the water on top, it does look like a calm river!
Bali Stone Tiles Combination to Use
Although you can completely rely on only green Bali stone tiles, you can also use other colors as accents. Looking at the inspirations, that is what some aquascapes have done in their designs. So what other stone tiles can you use with the green tiles?
For a beach-like combination that combines the blue and green shades of the Bali stone tiles, you can use Palimanan or Paras Jorge stones. They both have white to light beige colors that can mimic the color of sand. Both tiles also do not absorb heat, perfect for exposed areas of the pool.
Meanwhile, to mimic the elegant look of the Hanging Garden of Bali’s pool, opt for black lava stone tiles. For a lighter option, you can also choose andesite stone, which is a type of grey lava stone tile that has black specks.

Energy Saving Purposes

The small porosity of the lava stone allows water to penetrate easily. Water coming down from the waterfall and other watering systems are easily absorbed by the lava stones thus help in keeping the cool temperature inside despite its glass rooftop. The sunlight coming from the rooftop is also easily absorbed by the lava stone because of the dark color of the stone, but it will quickly cool off, thanks to the water from the surroundings. The architecture and construction of the building have been tremendously done in meticulous detail so that it is very energy efficient.
