  • What makes M-SPA styles superior to other brands

Are Inflatable Hot Tubs Worth It?

Short answer: Yes, 1000%. 

If you ask anyone who’s ever owned an inflatable hot tub, that’s probably what they’ll tell you. Hot tubs are usually a purchase that’ll stay with you for the long haul. They become part of your lifestyle. You’ll quickly realize that it’s one of the few things you can’t imagine your life without. Add the “portable” feature to it and you’re looking at relaxation wherever you go. 

Moving to a new home or going on an extended vacation? Typical hot tubs weigh upwards of 1,000 pounds empty and 6,000 pounds full! No wonder hot tubs get left behind. With our portable spas, tear-down and setup is easy! They’re practically featherweight in comparison.

So what makes these convenient inflatable tubs so great?

  1. When we say portable, we really mean it. You can pack it up and pop it in the back of your car for easy traveling.
  2. You can easily assemble and take apart these tubs. 
  3. Portable spas can be used both indoors and outdoors. So you can relax year-round.
  4. They’re lightweight. Your back will thank you.
  5. These tubs actually look good. None of that 1970’s aesthetically unattractive stuff here. 
  6. They’re affordable. If you’ve always wanted a hot tub, without the hot tub price tag, an inflatable one will be perfect for you.
  7. Ever waited forever for a hot tub to warm up? These M-SPA soft spas have quick heating technology.
  8. They’re quiet. Some hot tubs are known to be unnecessarily loud. Not these M-SPA tubs. So your neighbors won’t hear you. Unless you want them to.
  9. These portable spas will relax you to your core. You’ll know the moment you step in.

So now that you know how incredible these portable spas are, how do you find the right one? You know, the one that feels like it was custom-tailored to your needs? Let us help.

How to Find the Perfect Portable Spa for You

You’re that much closer to finding the best portable spa for your unique needs! But before settling for a specific model, you need to ask yourself a few questions:

Will you be staying in the hot tub for short or long periods of time? If you think your hot tub sessions will be on the longer side, you’ll love this one for its energy saving capability. So stay as long as you want. We dare you.

Want all the bells and whistles? We’ve got the perfect suggestion - this spa is at the top of a lot of wish lists.
