The location of a hot tub outdoors can add to the experience
Some of the best settings for a hot tub are in the garden, in an elevated position with views over the surrounding countryside. It can be a blissfully relaxing feeling to lie back, listen to the birds sing and feel the sunshine on your face as your body is massaged by water jets.
Another brilliant time to enjoy the magic of a hot tub is when the stars are out at night and you can stargaze from the warm swirling waters.
