How Do Sunrise Hot Tubs Stack Up Against The Competition?

Let's see how Sunrise Spas hot tubs compare to other brands on the market by taking a look at some of the pros and cons of choosing this spa brand.


Sunrise hot tubs' good google rating and Better Business Bureau evaluations indicate that this brand is popular and that many customers have had a great experience with them. They have an average rating of 65% on the Home Stars website, scoring highly when it comes to responsiveness and reputation.

The Sunrise Spas website has a very useful comparison table so you can compare the Classic Collection size, number of jets, heater, power, pump, size, features, etc, making it very straightforward to pick out the perfect hot tub model.

These spas are easy to clean and keep in tip-top shape. To service and clean the interior simply drain the water out, then use a container and a sponge to remove any water in the seats' curves.


Like many spa brands, the prices are not stated on the Sunrise Spas website which some customers may find frustrating if they just want to get a rough idea of the cost. You have to contact them or a local dealer to get a quote.

One hot tub owner experienced problems with their hot tub leaking, and another had problems with the jets popping out and the headrests breaking. These issues can arise with any hot tub purchase, and overall, most customers have positive things to say about this spa brand.

The Final Verdict

I have many positive final thoughts when it comes to this spa manufacturer. The Sunrise Spas brand offers a wide selection of affordable yet durable hot tubs that will suit most pockets.

They have an excellent range of hot tubs to meet any needs, from simple to install plug-and-play hot tubs to hydrotherapy-focused models with plenty of jets, to large and luxurious hot tubs with awesome lighting features which are great if you like to party.
