Out of season bookings
an you imagine a Winter break without a hot tub to warm up in? If your rental property isn’t as busy in the winter, a hot tub could be the perfect solution to increase winter bookings.
All of the above is relevant to Holiday Park owners too!
Hot Tubs also have loads of great health benefits!
Reduces joint inflammation
The buoyancy of hot tubs allows your joints to mobilise and relax, which can reduce joint inflammation and increase flexibility. If you struggle with achy knees, hips and shoulders, a session in a hot tub can help to ease that pain.
Reduces muscle soreness
If you’re an active person who likes to exercise a lot, then hot tubs are the perfect way to ease the pain of muscle soreness. The jets can massage the muscles that ache and speed up recovery, whilst heat is a great way to get the blood pumping through the muscles.

Promotes weight loss
Imagine going away on holiday and losing weight?! Well, with a hot tub in your property or holiday home this could be a reality. Hot tubs promote muscle movement and simulate the movements of exercise which can help promote weight loss – winning!
It helps you sleep
The main thing that people want when they escape to their holiday home is time to switch off and relax. Hot tubs are a great way to catch more zzz’s. Hot tubs before bed are a known remedy for restless sleepers or those who have difficulty dropping off.
Whether you’re using the hot tub for yourself or are advertising it to your potential clients, having a hot tub is great for stress relief. There’s not much you can be stressed about when you’re bouncing around in bubbles and enjoying the company of your family and friends.
