What says “party” and “relaxation” better than a hot tub? If you want to have it all at a reasonable price, an inflatable hot tub is just what you’re looking for.
Why choose an inflatable one over a regular hot tub?
Here are some obvious pros to consider:
- they are portable
- they are easy to store when out of use
- they are less expensive
- they are easier to clean and maintain
- still have the cool factor
A hot tub is usually designed to seat a minimum of 4 persons. Here are some of the standard features most hot tub models have:
- pump (for inflation and deflation)
- water filter
- a heating system that quickly brings water to the desired temperature
- massage and/or air jets
- handles (for easy transport)
If you’re not a fan of crowded public swimming pools or saunas but still want to experience the unique sensations relaxing in warm water brings, a hot tub is the right choice for you. Their price can range from $350 to $700 and more. Here are our Top 3 choices for every budget:
Coleman SaluSpa Four-Person Hot Tub
Dimensions: 71 in x 26 in
Best for: small spaces
This is a smaller tub with a comfortable and sturdy design. It heats up fairly quickly, though one of the main cons of this model is that its heating and massaging functions can’t both work at the same time. The air jets are powerful, offering a massaging sensation that is not overwhelming but perfect for the back and neck.
ALEKO HTIO2BKW Oval Inflatable Hot Tub Spa with Drink Tray and Cover
Dimensions: 75 in x 47 in x 26 in
Best for: a bit of luxury for two
If you’re looking for a more luxurious experience for you and your partner (or want to spoil yourself), this inflatable hot tub comes with a drink tray so you can enjoy a beverage of your choice while relaxing. This tub is ideal for outdoor use. Comes with a protective cover and a special coating for the bottom designed to prevent heat loss.
Bestway 54190E SaluSpa AirJet Helsinki
Dimensions: 71 in x 71 in x 26 in
Best for: a crowd
This hot tub comes at the highest price point for a reason: it seats up to seven people. Unlike some more modest models that need to be set up a day in advance to heat up, this one heats up in about two hours’ time. The heating and bubbling systems work simultaneously to provide an exquisite feeling of relaxation provided by over 80 air jets.
The benefits of regular hot tub bathing are many:
- relaxation and stress relief
- improved sleep quality
- better circulation
- helps manage back and joint pain
- reduces muscle soreness after work or training
Not to mention the added bonus of spending quality time with your partner and/or friends. This aspect of self-care should not be overlooked. Hot tubs make it easy to care for all aspects of your health.
