I am building an indoor pool, and I would like to know what is the best solution for interior walls application in this case. (high humidity).
I would like the look of a painted wall. Is there any type of drywall suitable for an indoor pool?
This is not my area of expertise, but I think you would be looking at something that would not support the growth of mould; so I am guessing steel with cement / concrete.
I suppose the other option would be some sort of kerdi or shulter application or perhaps even a blueskin overtop a cement board.
In my area of expertise, there are tons of rules related to electrical requirements for swimming pools. be sure to have an experienced Licenced Electrical Contractor assist with you on this. Much of the electrical work needs to be done on the exterior of the pool, so plan it early.

And did you think about plumbing system already?
HVAC, including a dehumidifier, plumbing and electrical, all is taken care of. The enclosure is a wood framing with 2x6 studs at 16" oc, R24 batt insulation, and on top of this I have to apply some drywall that is water and mold resistant. I did some research and I found cement boards and densshield boards that might be a solution, but I would like to see if anybody has worked with these and can comment/advise in this regard.
If you are considering drywall either water resistant drywall or regular drywall with red guard applied to the entire surface. I have seen pool houses done in both. If you're ready to spend big, then go with Dens Shield and then tile the entire surface. You could use a combination of the above.
