We have brought together one of the most experienced teams of spa builders and designers to create what we believe is the finest range of mosaic tiled spas, swim spas and hydrotherapy pools on the international market. Our team draws from a combined total of over a century of extensive experience within the spa industry and has been involved with many innovative and award winning projects.

Our Ethos

Our ethos is quality first, from design to delivery. Design is of paramount importance but the finish is what you see. Aesthetics are everything. With this in mind and after careful and precise manufacture of the shell our superb tilers go to work paying meticulous attention to detail. We work closely with designers, architects and pool installers merging our extensive knowledge and flair to produce bespoke luxurious spas, swim spas and Hydrotherapy pools to fulfil the needs of the most exacting clients. We have been involved in many award winning and elaborate projects. Our graduate run drawing office uses the latest 3-D design and stress testing technology to produce working drawings and 3D renders for our clients. This enables us to produce precise manufacture plans. For example modeling pipe work and equipment in tight spaces can easily highlight any problems before any factory or site work begins which dramatically cuts installation costs. As each project is unique. We, at GMT Spas International, firmly believe that excellent communication and customer service are the key to successful project . Our highly qualified and experienced individuals will also ensure that emphasis is placed on outstanding delivery every time. GMT Spas international are uniquely placed within the spa industry; as we are the only UK spa manufacturer not to install. Our unique business model of supplying to the trade only and not installing, enables us to concentrate on, and remain true to our ethos of manufacturing superb high end products.

Using the finest marine quality materials and the expertise of our experienced workforce we are able to produce a range of pools that are as unique and individual as our clients, who include international footballers, film directors, film stars, music legends and even royalty. All of our shells have a 10 year guarantee.
