    If you’re looking to spice things up with the one you love, a hot tub is a great way to do it. In fact, many ThermoSpas customers have reached out to us to let us know how much their hot tub has helped rekindle the romance in their relationships. The privacy of the hot tub and its warm, bubbling waters help bring you and your loved one closer and heat things up to get you in the mood for love.

    We here at ThermoSpas have some sensual tips to help you and your partner have the most romantic night you’ve ever had in your hot tub.

    1. Slip Into the Mood for Love

    This tip requires no work on your part. All you and your loved one have to do is step into the spa. As you sit back and relax, the massaging of the jets and the warm temperature of the water will work together to decreases stress, relaxes your muscles and improves blood circulation. Both your body and your mind will slip into a deep state of relaxation. You and your loved one will no longer be thinking about work or worrying about your kids. Instead, you’ll be ready to fall into the mood for love.

    2. Turn On the Mood Lighting

    To make your hot tub night a truly sensual experience, you will want to turn on some mood lighting. If your ThermoSpas hot tub includes an LED lighting package, you can transform your spa into a multi-colored romantic oasis with the touch of a button. We recommend changing the color to red, purple and pink. These colors are relaxing and known to set a romantic mood. If you have trees nearby your hot tub, consider hanging fairy lights or Chinese lanterns in them to make the environment even more beautiful.

    3. Play Romantic Music

    Romantic and soothing music is a must for a secluded night with your loved one. With a ThermoSpas deluxe sound system, you can control your music without ever leaving your spa. Just connect the system to an audio source, such as an iPod, mp3 player or USB memory stick, and you’re ready to serenade your lover with music.

    You can either create your own playlist, play an automated playlist based on a romantic mood using StereoMood, or listen to ThermoSpas’ romantic hot tub playlist. With our quiet spas, you won’t have to worry about any disruptive noise coming from your hot tub and ruining the sensual mood.

    4. Add a Touch of Sensual Fragrance

    Just like foods, scents can act as aphrodisiacs, getting you and your partner in the mood for love. ThermoSpas offers a wide variety of fragrances to help you slip into different moods. Some of the best for a night of romance include Lavender Palmarosa, White Musk Vanilla Jasmine and Green Tea Peony, all of which include known aromatic aphrodisiacs.

  2. Creating an Atmosphere Around Your Hot Tub

    When it comes to a great hot tub experience, ambience is just as important as water temperature and your bubbling system. To feel truly relaxed you must have a sense of comfort that absorbs every sense. While touch is taken care of with your hot tub, vision and smell are another thing. The steam might clear your sinuses, but nothing’s better than slow wafts of jasmine or evergreen to settle your every nerve. To better enjoy your hot tub, you want to decorate and set a calming mood to your surroundings. Here are our suggestions to making your hot tub a paradise comparable to Eden.


    A great addition to the surrounding area of your hot tub is a collection of plants that give your spa a natural feel while providing settling visual and even some calming aroma. Be careful when choosing your plants, take note to how high a plant will grow and its life cycle. Many plants can grow quite fast and drop leaves year round. Try to avoid plants that might make your hot tub a magnet for dead leaves. Instead, choose plants that have consistent life cycles and grow steadily. We recommend an array of succulents. Succulents need very little maintenance, don’t often shed their leaves, and grow slowly. As well, they’re very easy to trim if ever needed. There are plenty varieties of succulents as well, so any person’s preferences can be satisfied. Although avoid any succulent that may have spikes, sharp points, or spines. Here are a few of our favorite succulents that we would recommend:

    • Aeonium
    • Agave attenuata
    • Crassula
    • Kalanchoe
    • Portulacaria afra
    • Sedum
    • Sempervivum

    Vines are another smart addition to your hot tub area. However, we don’t recommend placing them anywhere near the hot tub. Instead, think of them as a decorative screen that can be used against a fence or near an unflattering viewpoint. Vines can grow very quickly and placing them near your hot tub runs the risk of them growing on and inside you cabinetry. This can cause problems if there are ever any maintenance issues that need to be addressed. Our favorite vines to use at the perimeter of your hot tub area are:

    • Jasmine
    • Honeysuckle
    • Trumpet Vine
    • Orange Trumpet
    • Caerulea Passion Flower


    Another great way to set the mood and make your hot tub area look extra special is lighting. We recommend a subdued light that isn’t too abrasive. Often, the lighting from your hot tub is all you need to set the mood to the night. However, we also recommend an array of candles that can provide a subtle ambience along with a pleasing aroma that helps you relax. Votive candles are often best as they do not provide a strong flame that might distract the eye and can be encased in a larger vase to keep the flame contained. Keep candles at a safe distance though as to not accidentally fall into your hot tub water or cause any unnecessary accidents.


    If your hot tub is indoors or near walls and fence outside, you’ll want to choose colors that help create a calming effect. These colors include soft greens, blues, grays, and whites. Of course, color is a preference to the viewer, so if you feel a certain color makes you feel relaxed, even if it’s bright orange, then use it! Remember, this is your space to find relaxation and serenity, create it to your liking.

    Creating an atmosphere around your hot tub is almost as important as choosing your hot tub. While the decision of how your hot tub area is decorated is solely up to you, ThermoSpas is happy to help you choose the hot tub that’s right for your budget and help you to create your own personal paradise.
