10 Person Hot Tub
A hot tub is much more than just a bucket of water. It is a safe space to enjoy yourself with your family and friends. But what if you have a large family or what if you want to enjoy your relaxing spa along with a bunch of people? Well, that is where a 10-person spa comes in.
With the extra space, you are able to enjoy the therapeutic experience without climbing over everyone or without the limitation of only being able to have a few people join you.
Nothing is as awkward as 3-4 people going to enjoy the spa while everyone else has to wait outside in the backyard. But with a 10-person spa, your social worries can melt away and you can just sit back and relax.
Not sure which hot tub to get? Let us help you!
What Is The Best 10-Person Hot Tub?
With so many quality options it is hard to pick just one. However, our choice would be the Integrity Spas Big Kahuna. This model is feature-rich with multiple LED lights, fountains, reverse molded neck jets, a whisper-quiet circulation pump, an ultimate double lounger seat, and 123 fully-adjustable stainless steel Jets.
One of the best characteristics of this tub is its dual lounge seats allowing a couple to experience the best comfort that a tub can offer. Meanwhile, everyone else can enjoy the 8 jet-intensive massage seats.
It's filtration system is one of the best available on the market today, cleaning the water every 15 minutes. This takes a huge weight off your mind especially when you are inviting groups of people into your lovely pristine water. You can rest assured that this model is incredibly easy to maintain and keep clean.
Most other additional options and features can be easily added when you purchase and this manufacturer is extremely well known for allowing a wide range of customizations making this 10-person spa ideal for almost anyone.
What Is A Good Size For A Hot Tub?
Many people say that bigger is better and to some extent that can be true. The larger your spa is, then the more comfortable it will be for 10 people. You get easy access to the tub and everyone who decides to join gets a seat!
However, you also need to take into account not just its length and width but also its interior size and layout. Well-designed spas can make your yard seem larger than it is, so it is worth reviewing along with the actual dimensions.
For 10-person spas, you are generally looking at about 100 inches wide by 100 inches long. However, most of these large hot tubs are not perfectly square so you may need to subtract 10 inches and add 10 inches to the opposing dimension if it is rectangular. This is just an estimate but a good way to get an idea of how much space you are going to need.
The most important dimension to consider, however, is height. Shallow spas will be uncomfortable. It will not allow you to fully reap its benefits and you may feel like you are in a kiddies paddling pool. Therefore, whatever the width or length, we recommend you give utmost importance to the height of the spa. The taller, the better!
Unfortunately, not every house can support a tall model due to the delivery difficulties that it can cause. A taller tub cannot get through small doorways and will be much harder to get around corners, so please measure your opening first before purchasing a taller tub.
How Much Does A 10-Person Hot Tub Cost?
While many basic spas can cost between $3,000-$6,000 a 10-person spa can cost you somewhere in the range of $6,000-$30,000. This largely depends on the brand and the features that you choose.
For example, the Big Kahuna is top of the line and costs the maximum price whereas another great option the Artesian Spa’s Pelican Bay costs around $16,000.
They do have many similarities but the manufacturers offer different styles.
Alternatively, if you wanted something very basic, you could get a fully functioning 10-person spa for $6,000. This would not be as luxurious or fancy as some of the other options, but it's still going to be a lovely place to relax and socialize.
Our recommendation is to try and choose a 10-person spa over $8,000-$10,000. Most 10-person spas below that price range generally do not match up to the same quality as some of the other options. Make sure to take into account the cost of getting your hot tub delivered as well!

Is A 10-Person Hot Tub Worth It?
If you want a large spacious spa to enjoy with your whole family, then it could be a great investment. However, if you have a small family or are not planning on inviting a ton of people over, it seems like it would be a rather pointless upgrade. If your goal is pure relaxation or enjoying a soothing massage, you may not need to spend the extra money.
Instead, you could go for a 2-4 person spa or even a 6 person spa which is still quite large. 10-person tubs are really only for people that want the ability to host a large group of people, feel like they need the extra room, or want to show off their lavish lifestyle to their neighbors.
Before deciding if it is worth it or not, we urge you to consider the shipping requirements, the installation costs, and the room that you have available. Nothing would be worse than buying this beautiful appliance and then realizing that you don't have enough space for it and no way to install it. Speaking with our representatives can help you figure out exactly what you need.
