The Benefits of Hot Tubs

The Benefits of Hot Tubs

What’s better than a long Soak in a nice bath……?

Your very own hot tub


hot tub wales

Today’s fast paced modern environment can cause a lot of stress…trust me I know!

As a working mum of two rocket fuelled children, I would often find myself stressed, fraught and practically tearing my hair out at the thought of yet another day in the rat race!

A few months ago this all changed….

I decided to take the leap and buy a new hot tub, and now instead of living in a perpetual motion, I actually take the time I need for myself to be a better mum and all round person.

Having a hot tub has so many benefits it would read like War and Peace (i.e very very long)

However I will list the ones that I personally have found most beneficial:

Stress relief, warm soothing water coupled with powerful hydrotherapy jets…OMG!



Peace, as soon as the children’s heads hit the pillow, my bum hits the spa seat and I am immersed up to the neck in pure luxury. Bliss.

My children are now not only the most popular children in school, they have hours of entertainment and my little girl who was afraid of water is confidently diving under for toys!!

Better sleep, we all sleep better after a spell in the hot tub, it really makes a big difference

Weight loss, this is an amazing benefit of using your hot tubSpazazz is a great product to add to your spa or bath and as you tend to lose about a gram of body fat when you enter the spa, it never hinders…

Social we invite friends over to go in the tub; we find that our parties are always a huge success!

My aches and pains from carrying the children around for years have melted away; I use the hot tub every day and emerge feeling relaxed and more flexible


There will always be testing times when you are a working parent, I can’t promise every day will be a breeze, even with your hot tub…. But using a hot tub will certainly help, as the old saying goes you don’t have to be rich! But crying in the comfort of a Mercedes beats crying on a bike!

2. Fairy lights: these help to lights set the party mood scene and look stunning when it gets dark! If you are worried about the weather or if it is an out of season party pop up a gazebo around your hot tub to put your lights in.

7. Maybe a few mini bins scattered around the tub/garden  because they will help people to clean up for you and make it easier to chuck those used food sticks away!



8. Foot bath, adding a foot bath by the spa will help to keep grass and dust and debris out of your spa water



9 .Hot tub games! You can play many games in the hot tub 5 questions is both funny and engaging to play where one person chooses any person (be it a celebrity, family member or mutual friend) that everyone knows and the other players have 5 questions to guess who they are… i.e. are you male? etc etc



10. Ideas for Finishing Touches include the beautiful  Underwater light show, the latest craze sensation  spa bombs

SpaBomb Aromatherapy













Most importantly enjoy your party, once you have started doing parties you will soon become addicted and want to throw more!



As the nights draw in and the air turns fresh and crisp, we tend to retreat into our homes draw the blinds and snuggle on the couch. We believe this will do us good and in some ways we are right! Sometimes being snuggled indoors is the best.
DO NOT neglect your hot tub!

Getting outside and into your spa will invigorate lacklustre spirits and warm those freezing toes through why not try an alternative party during the festive season??



Finally, when the party’s over Castle Hot Tubs sell everything  in our online shop that you need to get your water fresh and clean…
