Ambience is an important part of any outdoor hot tub experience. Do you want a relaxing soak? To romance a loved one? To laugh the night away with friends? The best way to set the mood for these, or other occasions, is through ambience.

We’ve rounded up a few of our favourite ambience builders…

Adding ambience to your outdoor hot tub

1. Lighting

Lighting is one of the easiest and most cost-effective ways to create ambience for your outdoor hot tub. Installing lighting that has the ability to change colours or brightness will allow you to always set the appropriate mood.

2. Speaker System

Music is another great way to set the mood in your outdoor hot tub. Certainly, there are other ways of adding music to a patio area, but if you want to control your music while you are in your hot tub, ensure that you are using a water safe system specifically intended for hot tub use. This will allow you and your loved ones to stay safe as you groove out.

3. Gazebo

A gazebo is a stylish and practical way of adding ambience to your Vancouver outdoor hot tub. You can get a traditional gazebo, or if that is not your style you could opt for a more sleek and modern look. The gazebo you choose will help define your outdoor hot tub’s surrounding area. If you are uncertain about what you want, consider consulting with your spa installation team.

4. Firepit

An outdoor hot tub is about relaxation, warmth, and fun – just like a fire. Therefore, adding a fire pit to your outdoor hot tub area can be a perfect pairing. Having a fire pit near your hot tub will make those frosty winter night soaks a more pleasant experience.

5. Plants

Plants can bring a natural calm to your outdoor hot tub area and make you feel like you are always on vacation at a luxury spa. If you do not have a green thumb, consult with your spa installation team or landscaper to create the look you want with plants that you will be able to maintain.

6. Seating area   

A seating area is ideal for reading a book in the summer, chatting over drinks with your loved ones, or hosting parties. It is also a great way of keeping your hot tub experience going after you get out of the water.

The greatest ambience builder for your outdoor hot tub, though, is you and your loved ones.

Your outdoor hot tub should be a place for you and your loved ones to enjoy together. Therefore, when you are choosing ambience builders, think about what will allow you and your loved ones to have the most fun and build the best memories together.

As you plan how to create ambience for your outdoor hot tub, remember to consider your hot tub’s placement. If you are ready to install your very own outdoor hot tub, contact our professional spa installation team at 604-255-855.
