Whether you're a first-time hot tub buyer or a seasoned spa enthusiast, the question of adding a lounger seat is bound to arise. In this post, we'll break down the concept of a hot tub lounger, its advantages, and potential drawbacks.
What is a Hot Tub Lounger? A hot tub lounger is a specially designed seat that allows you to stretch out your legs, providing an almost sunbed-style experience. It often incorporates leg and feet jets for a relaxing massage, making it a standout feature in premium models, like the expansive Hot Spring Prism showcased below.
Benefits of a Hot Tub Lounger:
- Ample space to fully stretch your legs
- Enhanced targeted leg and feet jet therapy
- No more foot wars with family and friends, as it eliminates crowding in the footwell
- A naturally relaxing reclining position
Drawbacks of a Hot Tub Lounger:
- Reduced seating capacity, typically equivalent to two regular upright seats
- Not all loungers are equally comfortable; a dry or wet test before purchase is recommended
- Loungers may not suit all body types, especially those who are very small or tall
- Loungers are less sociable as they face the side of the hot tub instead of inwards
Alternative Seats to a Lounger: Traditional upright seats are a popular alternative, offering leg and foot jet options, and are generally more common than loungers. Always ensure the seats are comfortable for you and your family through a dry or wet test before purchasing.
Hot Tubs with Two Lounger Seats: For those who crave the lounger experience but fear potential conflicts within the family, some models offer two loungers. While this reduces seating capacity significantly, hot tubs with dual loungers are a hit among couples who can both enjoy a luxurious lounging session simultaneously.
