The best hot tubs for couples

February 17, 2022 / Chloe Steele

What better way to spend a romantic evening with your other half than soaking in warm, relaxing water while looking at the stars. Compact hot tubs that are ideal for 2 people are a popular option for couples or those with limited space who don’t require a larger spa. With the versatility of plug and play hot tubs it is now possible to install a hot tub in almost any garden. Miami Spas professional technicians will unpackage and install your tub for you, no need for fuss.

What features are available with 2-person or 3-person hot tubs?

Small hot tubs are built to last and can include just as many features as larger size hot tubs. With two moulded seats to ensure maximum comfort, hot tubs for two are great for couples and provide the same therapeutic experience as bigger spas. In fact, for those whose space is an issue, a 2 or 3-seater hot tub can often provide the perfect solution for those seeking hot tub ownership. 

Small hot tubs typically still feature a good number of jets to provide users with a relaxing hydrotherapy experience, and many compact hot tubs have Bluetooth speaker systems, powerful water movement, and LED lights to create different ambiances. Blower, temperature controls and warning alerts are usually included but each hot tub model should be checked for the included features before purchasing.

Will a small hot tub still provide a spa experience?

Most people that invest in a hot tub are interested in the relaxation and massaging sensation of the water. In some cases hot tubs are used to soak away aches and pains caused by illness or intense workouts and the health benefits can be helpful. Compact hot tubs are completely capable of providing a massaging spa like experience to its occupants. 

The power and intensity of the water can be governed by the amount of jets and jet placement within the hot tub so it’s wise to consider how many will be needed and the jet positioning. Some models can include jets that are strategically placed to offer the maximum massaging properties to places on the body like neck, legs, and back to soothe aching muscles and relax areas of tension. 

Is a small hot tub beneficial for health?

The health benefits of hot tub use are well documented and the size of the hot tub in no way lessens the positive effects of soaking in a hot tub. Along with relieving stress and relaxing sore or tired muscles, sitting in the warm water of a spa is proven to assist things like cardiovascular health and promote better sleep. For those concerned with weight management, using a hot tub regularly is shown to improve the rate of calorie burn and may assist with weight reduction.
