Hydropool - 970 Titan
As the second-largest option on our list, this is a 9 person hot tub, capable of seating you and 8 of your closest friends. It comes with 70 jets, and is known as the self-cleaning hot tub. This is due to a system that removes scattered pieces of waste from the surface or bottom of the water every 15 minutes.
This is the ideal option for those that want a fancy spa that is easy to maintain and requires very little work to keep it pristine, clean, and ready to use.
If you are the type of person that eats or drinks in or around your hot tub this could be a perfect choice.
Additionally, it features comfy lounge seat, volcano jets for a great foot massage, and easy-to-use controls.
Jacuzzi is such a popular brand, that its name is commonly used as a synonym for "hot tub". It is common to hear these terms used interchangeably. And it's easy to see why. Jacuzzi is an amazing spa manufacturer at the core of spa creation, and the J-485 hot tub emphasizes this point.
The J-485 is a 7 person hot tub with 49 jets that has a bit of everything. With features such as high profile seating, a top of the line pump system, LED lighting, a wider than usual waterfall, RX therapy, FX-12 therapy, MX2 therapy, and ProFinish cabinets, it is a machine of marvelous massage enjoyment.
One feature that is especially interesting to take note of is the low-profile foot dome that can ease the aches and pains in your feet. Overall this hot tub is just a great purchase and with the Jacuzzi name behind it, you know it is reliable.
Marquis Spas - The Summit
This brand is all about luxury targeted massage experiences and high-end spas.
They make it easy for you by highlighting exactly what kind of massage you will get in each seat.
Amongst the 7 seating options that this 7 person hot tub model provides, we have various jet configurations. These include the Shiatsu massages with rotating pulse touch jets, deep tissue massages with targeted touch jets, relaxation massages with multi-touch jets, and a Swedish massage that combines several of them together.
However, not only do they give you a great hydrotherapy massage and a chance to lounge around in style, but they also offer features such as a Bluetooth audio system and LED mood lighting.
Strong Spas - Vienna 60
A spa can be expensive to run, but thankfully, Strong Spas have a solution to keep the price of your electric bill down.
As a brand that prioritizes energy efficiency, you can rest assured and keep the party going all night, knowing that you've got the best in the business when it comes to keeping the price of your utilities down. That being said, we are happy to see that they made a 7-person version that you can enjoy with your whole family.
The ergonomic seating is designed to provide you with a chance to unwind and relax while talking with friends and family. Thanks to their strong build and spa cover, this is a great choice for those that live in harsher climates.
As the name implies, this spa model includes 60 jets including specialized foot therapy jets, but it also comes with an ozone purification system and floating weir filtration system.
Though not quite as luxurious or feature-rich as some of the other tubs on our lis, this is a spa that you can rely on to keep on going for a long time and one that you will be able to afford to run in your backyard even when it's cold outside.
Selecting The Perfectly Sized Hot Tub
When looking at larger-sized tubs, it is common for customers to want the biggest that can fit in their yard, while still within their budget.
If you are not sure what size to go for, it is best to go larger than you need rather than the other way around. You can always seat 5 people in a 7 person hot tub, but you can't fit 7 in a space designed with only 5 seats.
Looking for something even bigger? Though there are options larger than 10-person capacity, most of those delve into the territory of Swim Spas or pools. A swim spa is perfect for those without the space for a pool, though still would like the swimming exercise benefits. Prices do differ though, as swim spa pricing runs higher than hot tub pricing. If this sounds like something you may be in the market for, see our Best Swim Spas article.
If you're looking for a relaxing hydrotherapy massage in a spa that provides enough seats to host a party, let the fun begin! Any of the 5 models on our list would do the trick, it just comes down to your personal preference.
