Nothing entices people to a party quite like a hot tub. If your friends or family don’t have one of their own, getting an invitation to a hot tub party is quite a thrill. They can get in on the many benefits of soaking in a hot tub while enjoying a great get together.
Since getting people to your party probably won’t be a problem, you can focus on the other logistics to make your event a success. Here are some hot tub party ideas to help.
Preparing the Waters
No matter how many people you plan to host for your hot tub party, you want to make sure your spa is freshly clean and ready to go for the event. A day or two before your party, take the time to get up to date on all your regular maintenance. That includes checking the pH balance, adding the necessary hot tub chemicals, or even changing the water. Give yourself at least a day between cleaning and your party. That way, you can have time to address any issues that might come up, and you will still have some time to take care of other party logistics.
Think about Numbers
When you choose the right hot tub for you, you might be thinking of the people who will use it regularly rather than the larger groups that come to your hot tub parties. Think about how many people can soak in your hot tub at once and how many people will be attending. If there is a big difference in numbers, plan for other activities so there isn’t a bottleneck at the hot tub. You can add yard games like lawn darts or corn hole, or kid games if there will be young ones at your party, to give people things to enjoy when not in the spa.
Choosing the Right Hot Tub Party Accessories
Accessories are important for a good hot tub party. This includes decorations in addition to games and activities. You can think of a theme for your party, like a tropical theme with palm trees and coconuts to go along with the warm waters of your hot tub. You can also base your food selections on your theme.
How to Make Food and Hot Tub Work Together
Speaking of food, mixing food and hot tub can be one of the challenges of a hot tub party. However, the logistics involved can actually help you ease the line for the hot tub. If you are grilling for your party, you can have some of your guests eat first as the food comes off the grill. They can then switch with the people who soaked first. Finger foods are another good idea so people can grab a quick bite between soaking in the tub or doing other party activities.
Since soaking in a hot tub can increase a person’s circulation, it helps to have people soak before they drink any adult beverages. When they get out, they can enjoy a drink. The bar can also serve as a way to get people out of the hot tub.
From enjoying a great party to having a relaxing or therapeutic soak, hot tubs make everything better. Contact your hot tub dealer with any questions or to get the hot tub you have always wanted.
A spa is a great addition to any home. Whether you’re putting it on your back patio, situating it near your pool, or creating an entirely new landscaping project specifically for it, a spa is an easily customizable piece that will create fun or relaxing moments for you and your family and friends.
Because a spa is significantly smaller than a pool, there are a number of ways you can customize it to fit what you’re looking for.
Take a look at some suggested ways you can design your own custom spa.

It’s a well-known fact that the best backyard parties are the ones that include a hot tub. As a hot tub owner, you have probably been given a standing obligation among your friends to host a hot tub party at least once a year. Or maybe you love throwing parties and are looking to purchase a hot tub to add that extra fun factor. Either way, we can have you ready to send out invitations in no time with these posh hot tub party ideas.
Plan AheadThe most important thing to remember when throwing any kind of event is that winging it is not an option. Start by creating a guest list and make notes of any individual needs that may need to be accommodated, like a food allergy or entertainment for your friends’ children. If there is anything you need help with or need to reserve in advance, put those items at the top of your to-do list. Make sure your plan also includes checking the temperature and chemical levels of your hot tub, and preparing for safety concerns.
FoodAside from the hot tub, the best part about a social gathering is the food. Let your guests know what to expect and whether they need to contribute. Try some of these fun variations.
We recommend that you avoid pairing any of these items with wine or other alcohol, however, as the heat from the hot tub may increase its effects or exacerbate a hangover. You can also opt to serve alcohol after everyone is finished using the hot tub rather than before or during.
EntertainmentDon’t overlook planning entertainment just because the hot tub is the main attraction. Unless it is an intimate hot tub party with only a couple of close friends, you will most likely not be able to fit all the guests in the hot tub at one time. It’s a great idea to have music playing to create a party atmosphere and encourage interaction. You can also have a sitting area with games available, such as yard or lawn games, water balloons, backyard volleyball, a slip ‘n slide, Twister, or any other games you think your guests (or their children) will enjoy.
DecorationsNot every party needs decorations to be a success, but it certainly adds flair and creates a fun ambiance. Consider whether your party has a central theme and use that as inspiration. It can be anything from a Hawaiian luau to a simple understated elegance. If costumes or a certain dress code are involved, be sure to let your guests know when you invite them. Try some of the decoration ideas below or come up with your own.
