Have you ever wondered about the coolest hot tubs of all time? We certainly have, in fact it plays on our mind almost every day. (Okay maybe not that often.) However we thought it would be appropriate to scour the internet in the hope of putting our ultimate list together.

The Suspended

Although not something I would personally feel very relaxed in, this one makes the list because of the amount of effort gone into it. A disproportionately large amount of effort considering the time put into it.

The Copper

This simple and extremely elegant copper hot tubs comes in at number 6 on the list. The colour and texture of the hot tub matching and complimenting the surrounding perfectly.

The Witches brew

Although the ‘Witches brew’ hot tub (I named it that) is an great idea it does scare me a bit. I mean, have yo ever heard the story of the frog that jumps straight out if you put it in boiling water. But when you slowly raise the temperature up it doesn’t notice and slowly gets cooked alive. That’s how I feel when I look at this. But it does look very cool.

The Homemade

Maybe this is being modest but the luxurious homemade hot tub by the withhottubs.co.uk crew is number 3 on the list. It must have been that it only fits one person that let it down on this occasion, because in terms of relaxation, cost and style it surely has award winning features?

The Cinema

Whoever thought of combining hot tubs and cinema was a genius. You can now go to either Bristol or London and watch a movie with your friends whilst soaking away.

The Portable

This portable wood burning hot tub might be one of the coolest things I’ve ever seen. It’s designed in Holland (trust the Dutch) and is known as the Dutchtub and it manufactured by a company called WellTree.

They’ve put a lot of though into the design so that it’s easy to transport so you can throw it in the back of your pick-up truck and head up to the mountains. The other awesome thing about this portable hot tub is that all you need to do to heat it up is put some logs in the ‘fire basket.’ The metals coils conduct the heat from the fire and transfer is efficiently into the water.

Apparently all you need to do is leave it for an hour or so and give it a stir once in a while and you’re good to go. Genius, absolutely genius. I am personally more of a fan of the egg-shell blue colour than the bright orange but then it is a Dutch company making them after all.

The Treehouse

The treehouse hot tub is escapism and seclusion at its finest. This is truly about escaping the rate race and being part of something that fits in with the natural surrounding area and complements it. Respect to these guys for putting in the hard work and actually building what they want, by the looks of it they’ve built something amazing.

You can see from the aerial photo the small wood burner they use to heat the water. I’m sure there wouldn’t be a lack of fuel where they live up in the mountain forests. The picture below is what it’s all about, two friends enjoying time together as the sun goes down after a long day of work, out in the beauty of nature. Sounds pretty good to me.

The Ski chalet

I don’t think everyone will agree with me on this one, I mean it’s not the most original idea in the world. But the ski chalet hot tub is exactly what hottubbing is all about. Pure relaxation, stunning views, chilly weather, friends and family and champagne (of course.)

That’s exactly what is appealing about hot tubs in the first place. Although this one in particular is obviously for a French ski chalet and we re all about UK destinations it doesn’t matter. The scenery we have in our National Parks, in the Scottish Iles and even in the South of the UK are totally comparable and amazing.

If you’ve got a hot tub in mind that you think would be a worthy addition to the list then let us know. I’m sure there are a couple of properties on here that could potentially be a worthy entrant.
