Hot tubs are a great way to relieve stress, have fun, and they offer several amazing health benefits. You could just step right in and say “aaaah,” but there are things you can do to make your hot tub experience the best it can possibly be!

Here are 5 Tips to Enhance and Maximize Your Hot Tub Experience


1. Experiment with Lighting

Set the mood with candles placed around the deck. Because all Sundance® Spas come with adjustable LED lighting, you can enhance your soak by using the principles of chromotherapy. Use blue lighting for the ultimate in relaxation, or if you want to energize your day, start your morning with a tub session with green lighting, which enhances mental focus.


2. Add Nature Elements

Bright blooms in spring and summer and evergreen plants for fall and winter can add a garden or park-like feel to your spa area. And by planting aromatic plants like lavender, rosemary, and scented geraniums, you can create your own aromatherapy spa. Lavender is relaxing and also repels mosquitos, while scented geraniums can be made into stress-and-anxiety-reducing tea.


3. Create an Oasis with Fire and Water Features

Turning on the waterfall feature in your spa is just the beginning. Add to the soothing sound of water by including a custom backyard waterfall, a tiered waterfall, or a fountain on a pedestal. Evenings take on a new glow when you relax in your spa with a fire pit nearby, as flickering flames and crackling wood add a feeling of coziness.


4. Create Perfect Privacy

Are neighbors too close for comfort? Add privacy fencing, and for even more privacy, surround your spa with moveable screens. You can keep it simple, or you can create your own exclusive spa surround with these creative ideas.


5. Set the Mood with Aromatherapy

Aromatherapy, also called essential oil therapy, works to improve the health of your body, mind, and spirit. The Sundance® Spas SunScents™ System uses scented cartridges to infuse the water with the soothing scents of your choice. Options include relaxing lavender, summer rain to stimulate your imagination, jasmine, which has a reputation as an aphrodisiac, and other mood-stimulating smells.
