Here are some of the top 5 hot tub companies and a little bit of background about each:


Jacuzzi® Hot Tubs

The Jacuzzi® brand was founded out of love and a desire to help soothe. Ken Jacuzzi was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis at the young age of two, and his father invented the world’s first at-home pump to provide his son with pain-relieving hydromassage. Since that time, more than 60 years ago, the Jacuzzi® brand has brought the power of hot bubbly water into the homes of millions of people worldwide. Today, the same dedication, commitment, and care are taken with every Jacuzzi® product from idea and innovation to production. Through decades of research and development, the Jacuzzi® brand has created breakthrough products that engage your senses, nurture your body, and restore your mind like no other. Jacuzzi® products are enjoyed in more than 100 countries around the world and manufactured in five countries, including the United States. 

Sundance® Spas

Sundance® Spas are “built with you in mind” with every element designed specifically for quality and reliability that is built into every product.

The company’s website states: “Our products provide an environment where you can nurture relationships and enhance your life, bringing social circles together and couples and families closer.” In addition the helping customers create this connection, the company prides itself on the relationship it has with its customers, which serves as its foundation, as well as the craftsmanship of its products to give you “the confidence that your spa has everything you need and nothing you don’t.”


Dimension One Spas®

For spas that are designed to impress and engineered with passion, purpose, and performance for more than 40 years, Dimension One Spas® manufactures spas with its customers in mind. The company’s website states: “Since its inception in 1977 by Bob and Linda Hallam, Dimension One Spas® has emerged as a prominent force in the spa and aquatic fitness industry.

The company aims to lead with cutting-edge technology, unbridled passion, and customer satisfaction at its core.


Hot Spring®

According to its website, the “Hot Spring® team is invested in doing more than making the best spas in the industry—we also create great experiences while providing all of the wellness benefits of hydrotherapy, including relaxation, relief, and reconnection.” As an innovator in the hot tub manufacturing industry, the company holds a long list of patents that “offer the latest technology in water care and other spa systems to our customers.” Hot Spring® spas are rigorously tested for quality control of form, function, fit, and finish so that the company can continue to manufacture spas that provide the best hot tub ownership experience for its customers.

While these companies have all earned good ratings and maintained good reputations over the years, it is important to consider some other criteria when choosing the best hot tub company. While brand name is important not only for the luxury status that comes with owning a top-rated hot tub, the features of that hot tub are also important to consider. For example, think about innovations and technology that elevate your hydrotherapy experience while also ensuring easy hot tub management and maintainance.


The Jacuzzi® brand features new-to-market innovations such as Infrared and Red Light therapy, which enhances hydrotherapy and takes your hot tub soak to new heights. Through the exclusive Jacuzzi® FX-IR Seat, you can experience the next level of hydrotherapy with the rejuvenating power of Infrared combined with the regenerative qualities of Red Light therapy. These work together deep beneath your skin’s surface to deliver an unparalleled hydrotherapy massage that leaves you refreshed and regenerated long after you step out of your soak.


Depending on the model, Jacuzzi® Hot Tubs also come standard, or are compatible, with the Jacuzzi® SmartTub® Remote Monitoring System. This system works through an app on your smart device so you can easily manage and maintain your hot tub, even from thousands of miles away. This simple-to-use technology can offer peace of mind and save you stress and hassle when it comes to caring for your hot tub. 


Other features of the best quality and luxury hot tubs include:

  • Modern style and timeless design
  • Top-notch craftsmanship and materials
  • Unparalleled insulation and energy efficiency
  • Peak-performing water care and management systems, filtration systems, pumps, and other equipment
  • Conveniences such as cup holders, easy-to-use control panel, and comfortable headrests
  • Aesthetics such as color choices, lighting, waterfalls, and sound systems
  • Warranties that cover parts and equipment in the event that they need service, repair, or replacement


In addition, consider your hot tub shopping experience as you determine where to purchase your hot tub. While you can purchase a hot tub entirely online, purchasing a high-quality hot tub from a local authorized dealer can provide you with a more personalized experience.


This begins with a visit to your nearby spa showroom, where you can see and touch a variety of hot tub models from reputable brands. Your hot tub dealer may be able to help you get the very best deal, based on exclusive specials on a model that you like. It’s also a nice opportunity to connect with your hot tub dealer who can help you should you need supplies, service, repairs, or replacement parts during the course of your hot tub ownership. It’s important that your hot tub also has solid warranties on parts and equipment.


Finally, once you’ve found the hot tub of your dreams, you can schedule a wet test. This experience can help ensure it is indeed the model that truly fits all your needs as well as contours to your body as you try it out when it is filled with water and operating.


When you take a trip to your spa dealership, use this as an opportunity to learn everything you want to know about a specific hot tub model and brand. An expert hot tub dealer will be able to help guide your decision on the best company from which to purchase a spa as well as the best-selling models that customers love. They can also advise you on everything from a model’s warranties and financing options to the detailed outline of your delivery and installation day—so you can start enjoying quality and luxury in your own backyard.
