When I was a kid, any family vacation that involved stopping at a hotel wasn’t complete without a trip to the jacuzzi. Why’s that? A hot tub — an item with the sole purpose of helping folks relax — seemed like the height of luxury. As we navigate the COVID-19 pandemic this summer, however, it looks like trips are going to be a bit closer to home. Whether you’re creating a staycation oasis or just eager to soothe your tired muscles, there are plenty of wonderful hot tubs out there to fit your needs. Read on to soak in our team’s favorite options.
On the Move? You Can Take This Hot Tub with You
Maybe you share a backyard with neighbors — or you don’t want to commit to a year-round hot tub — but the idea of spending summer nights in an at-home jacuzzi does sound appealing? Coleman, the maker of all things outdoors, has you covered with the SaluSpa Inflatable Hot Tub. That’s right — inflatable.
The Plug-and-Play Hot Tub That’s Just as Soothing for Your Wallet
Few tubs make the leadup to relaxation as much of a breeze as the relaxation itself than the American Spas 2-Person 28-Jet Premium Acrylic Triangle Spa Hot Tub. The term "plug-and-play" applies quite literally when it comes to this jacuzzi, but, despite the ease of setup, this tub doesn’t sacrifice top-of-the-line features like similar tubs might.
Soak in Style with a Spa Day-Level Experience
If you’re one for creature comforts, choosing the right at-home hot tub can be tricky. So many jacuzzis seem to have all the bells and whistles — and the price tags to go along with those features. However, few stack up in performance to American Spas Freedom 7-Person 40-Jet Premium Acrylic Bench Spa Hot Tub with 2 Backlit LED Waterfalls and Steps. It even promises users they will "achieve ultimate relaxation." Does it get any better than that?
Want to Be Green? Soak in This Energy-Efficient Hot Tub
Worried about a new hot tub increasing your energy bills? The Corsica 8-Person 90-Jet Standard Hot Tub with Ozonator, LED Lights, WOW Sound System and Polar Insulation is a great option if that’s among your chief concerns. To save valuable resources (and money), the Corsica spa utilizes an energy-efficient Econo-Boost heat recovery system that reuses recycled heat to further warm the tub's shell and water instead of venting it away.
A Spacious Hot Tub with Room for the Whole Family
If you have a big family, live with tons of roommates or simply love playing host, then a roomy backyard hot tub is a must. The AQUA 6-person 45-Jet Premium Acrylic Lounger Spa Hot Tub is, without a doubt, one of the roomiest and most luxurious models out there.
