A hot tub in your home can be a central spot for relaxing and socialising, even if you have limited space. If you have a compact garden, balcony or room and are uncertain about fitting a hot tub in it, don't fret - you're not the only one pondering this question.

After reading, you'll have lots of inspiration for small garden ideas with a hot tub.

Jacuzzi® Hot Tub dials lit up at night

Jacuzzi® has been making hot tubs of all shapes and sizes for more than 65 years, and many people have asked us if we have hot tubs that would fit into a smaller space.  


The good news is yes, we do. Jacuzzi® have hot tubs that are perfect for making the most of ‘pocket-sized’ spaces, while still giving you access to the Jacuzzi® brand quality and reliability.  


No matter the size of your garden or small area, you have four great options with our compact models in the J-200™ and J-300™ collections, which fit perfectly into smaller gardens or outdoor spaces. 

Jacuzzi® J-215™ Hot Tub

The J-215™ is a great compact hot tub that offers seating for up to three people. With bullet LED lights and a single waterfall for added ambience, the J-215™ can create a cosy atmosphere while providing great hydromassage targeting key muscle groups.  


Within the hot tub comes a lounge seat, giving you the option of a full body massage using the ClassicPro™ Jet range found in the J-200™ collection.    


If you’re looking for a cosy hot tub that won’t take up much space but will add great style and comfort to your garden space, a J-215™ could be a great addition. 

Coming in at 193.0 x 168.0 x 81.28cm, and only having two seats and a lounger, the J-215™ can fit snug against the back wall, fence or purpose-built wooden gazebo with little to no problem.  


Like all J-200™ models you will get access to standard features such as our ClassicPro™ jet range. If you want a hot tub with a good hydromassage, you can find it within this collection. But if you want more advanced technology and features, a hot tub from the J-300™ collection might be a better choice.  



  • One filter pump
  • One jet pump and one two speed jet and circulation pump
  • Bullet LED lights  
  • Adjustable air control 


  • Lounge seat - Giving you a full body massage 
  • ClassicPro™ jets - Great massage across all seats 


  • Depth - Our compact tubs are not as deep as other tubs
  • Limited choice - Only one colour option for cabinetry and shell top 

Jacuzzi® J-225™ Hot Tub

Coming in slightly bigger than the J-215™, the J-225™ is a hot tub that loses the lounge seat in order to accommodate more guests, being able to fit 4-5 people inside. This gives a different layout and ambience to the hot tub, as the seats all face inwards - creating more of a social experience.


Like all the models you'll find in the J-200™ collection, the ClassicPro™ jets provide a great hydromassage experience and can be used as part of a daily or regular wellness routine to relieve aches and pains while targeting key muscle groups.

Unlike the J-215™, the J-225™ has a footwell in the middle, allowing space to stand up and navigate in and out of the hot tub with ease.     



  • Open seating  
  • Greater capacity 
  • ClassicPro™ jet range 
  • Adjustable air control  


  • Increased capacity - Can fit 3-5 people 
  • Open footwell - Makes moving around easier


  • No lounge seat - No all-round body massage 
  • Limited extras - Not a large choice of additional features

Jacuzzi® J-315™ Hot Tub


The J-315™ is a great hot tub for smaller areas such as gardens and patios. The J-315™ has 23 PowerPro® jets shared between two corner seats, and a lounger; which are all ergonomically designed to give maximum comfort. 


Being more compact, the J-315™ has one of the smallest footprints in the Jacuzzi® Hot Tub range, making it easy to deliver and install.


Featuring the exclusive FX rotational jets for deeper muscle penetration and a more impactful massage. The J-315™ also has exclusive Hydrosoothe™ head massage pillows which can be found across the hot tubs in the J-300™ collection.


  • Hydrosoothe™ massage pillow 
  • PowerPro® jet range 
  • FX rotational jets 
  • 1x jet pump 1x circulation pump 


  • Exclusive features - One Hydrosoothe™ pillow as standard 
  • Lounge Seat - For all round body massage 


  • Compact - Might not be the best option for taller people  
  • Space - Lounge seat takes up room

Jacuzzi® J-325™ Hot Tub


The J-325™ is a hot tub with room for 4-5 people, with its size meaning it can comfortably fit in back gardens or indoor spaces. With 23 PowerPro® jets, you’re getting a variety of hydromassage across the four ergonomically designed seats targeting key muscle groups.  


Removing the lounge seat in exchange for an open seating design, the hot tub creates a more social focus with a greater emphasis on hydromassage variety.

The great thing about the J-325™ is the superior hydrotherapy in a relatively compact hot tub, knowing you’re not compromising any beneficial hydrotherapy elements because of the size.   


At 193 x 213 x 87cm, means it’s not much bigger than the J-215™, J-225™ or the J-315™. With the extra seating capacity, the J-325™ is great for those looking to create a social hub for yourself and guests, who can all enjoy the enhanced hydrotherapy benefits together.  



  • PowerPro® jet range 
  • Open footwell 
  • Exclusive MX jet therapy seat  
  • Hydrosoothe™ massage pillow 
  • 1x jet pump 1x circulation pump 



  • Open footwell - Ease of manoeuvrability around the spa 
  • More space - Greater room over the J-215™, J-225™ and more seats

  • Limited colour choice - Both cabinetry and acrylic shell available in two colours
