8 Minute Read

Shopping for a hot tub will present a variety of choices when it comes to everything from size and shape to features such as lighting and sound systems. If you want a hot tub to provide a complete experience for all your senses, you may be interested in hot tubs with waterfalls. These models can deliver not only a relaxing hydromassage, but they can also offer additional soothing elements such as sound, sights, and sensations to elevate your hot tub experience.


This article will reveal a multitude of information about hot tubs with waterfalls to help you decide if these models are right for you. It will explain what a hot tub with waterfall is, some of the benefits of hot tubs with waterfalls, and some of the choices that are available in this category of hot tubs.


What is a hot tub with waterfall?

If you have heard of a hot tub with waterfall feature, you may imagine a waterfall similar to that of a swimming pool, streaming down from a rock or wall feature from above. However, a waterfall in a hot tub is a different experience. While delivering tranquility through sights and sounds, the waterfall in many hot tubs serves as an added element of your hydromassage, gently cascading around your neck and shoulders, without splashing you, as you soak. Many hot tubs with waterfalls allow you the option to turn the waterfall feature on and off so you can determine when you wish to add it to your hydrotherapy and when you choose not to.


Why do hot tubs have waterfalls?

There are many reasons that hot tubs have waterfalls. For example:


  • Waterfalls add enhanced visual, auditory, and sensory experiences to your soak.
  • Waterfalls actually serve as a functional part of your hot tub, helping to circulate the water, which can move chemicals about and push debris to the filter.
  • The sound of a waterfall can add to your relaxation, providing you with a sense of peace and calmness.
  • It can also serve as white noise, blocking out distractions outside your hot tub.
  • A waterfall creates a beautiful aesthetic for your hot tub and your entire spa sanctuary.


There are many other personal reasons why you may want a hot tub with a waterfall feature. As you shop for hot tubs with waterfalls, consider some of these additional benefits:


  • Calming peace of mind: Jacuzzi® Hot Tub owners say that using their hot tub gives them a sense of peace and calms their minds after a busy day.
  • Recharge and recover: Having a place in your home or backyard where you can recover from not only physical stress and tension but emotional stress as well can help you recharge and feel re-energized.
  • Self-care: Making time for self-care helps Jacuzzi® Hot Tub owners achieve a balanced state of mental and physical well-being.
  • Stress Relief: Stress can cause serious problems for some people. Managing stress levels is an important part of staying healthy. Jacuzzi® Hot Tub owners say one of the biggest perks of their regular hydrotherapy sessions is the sense of stress relief they experience.

As you shop for hot tubs with waterfalls, you’ll be happy to know that Jacuzzi® Hot Tubs offer multiple options to suit your needs.

What other features should I look for in a hot tub with waterfall?

While the main feature you might be seeking in your hot tub is a waterfall, there are many other features that can also elevate your hot tub experience. Much like a waterfall, many other features can serve as a visual highlight of your hot tub experience as well as serve a functional purpose. For example:


Design: Remember that your hot tub will be the central focus of your hydrotherapy haven. In addition to having a waterfall that looks and sounds inviting, the design of your hot tub can further lend itself to creating a beautiful and comforting outdoor environment. Today’s hot tubs with waterfalls also come in a variety of shapes, styles, and designs that can help enhance your ambiance. You can choose a square, rectangular, or circular hot tub, for example, and a variety of styles.


Lighting: Lighting is an excellent way to add to the ambiance of any room or outdoor area. Many hot tubs with waterfalls also feature lighting elements that add subtle vibes to your spa experience. Some hot tubs feature lighting both in and around your hot tub. Exterior lighting can prove to be a helpful safety feature to brighten up the path to your hot tub, while the lighting in your hot tub can set the mood for your soak.


Oftentimes, hot tub lighting is customizable and color-changing so you can pick and choose how you want to illuminate your spa experience. You can also consider where you place your hot tub. For example, having it placed under a gazebo or veranda can provide an added element of beauty and privacy while also helping to protect your hot tub from the elements. If you plan to have your hot tub placed on a patio, stunning sheer outdoor curtains can serve as another stylish option that also provides some intimacy.


Cabinet and Color Options: Another excellent way to visually enhance your hot tub experience is through a hot tub that offers a variety of cabinet and acrylic color options. This way, you can select the hues that complement your space. Having the option to choose your cabinet and shell color options puts you in charge of the finished look of your entire spa area. For example, some Jacuzzi® Hot Tubs offer multiple cabinet color choices as well as acrylic shell color options, allowing you to create the combination that soothes you from the very first look at your hot tub.


If you want to further enhance your ambiance, you can add elements surrounding your hot tub such as lush greenery, couches or cushy seating for bathers to dry off and lounge between soak sessions, and subtle string lights overhead. These small details can help complete the look of a spa sanctuary in any home or backyard.


Where can I find hot tubs with waterfalls?

You can search the website of your favorite hot tub brand, such as Jacuzzi® Hot Tubs, to find models that feature waterfalls. These models can also be found at your local high-end hot tub dealer. When shopping for a hot tub with waterfall feature, you’ll want to first determine a few things such as:


  • Where you plan to have your hot tub placed
  • What size, shape, and height you want your hot tub to be
  • How many people will be using your hot tub
  • What type of seating you prefer, such as open seating or lounge seating
  • What your budget is
  • What other features are important to you


A hot tub with waterfall can greatly enhance your hot tub experience. The soothing sounds of cascading water can help lull you into blissful relaxation as you let the power of the warm water ease your tense and tired body. With the help of sensory features like waterfalls, lighting, sound systems, and more, you can have a fully tranquil experience from the moment you set eyes on your hot tub. This is a feeling you can enjoy time and again when you choose a hot tub with a waterfall for your own home or backyard.
