    The Ritz Carlton capitalized on the calming California coast by opening up the first luxury beach resort by the Orange County seaside. Boasting breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean, the resort sits on top of a 150 foot bluff and offers comprehensive spa programs to address every guest’s specific needs. Each spa therapy focuses on revitalizing your body, mind and spirit with ocean minerals and healing. It’s self-indulgence at its finest.

    Some would argue that there’s nothing more peaceful than being surrounded by glistening snow-topped mountains and towering trees. Amangani offers this kind of unique winter oasis and luxury spa experience with panoramic views of Grand Teton National Park. After hitting the ski slopes, you can unwind with a variety of massages, facials and healing therapies in Amangani’s Spa and Fitness Centre. It’s no wonder Amangani means “peaceful home” in the Shoshone language.

    Imagine enjoying relaxing family time without the distractions of a TV, cell phones and computers. You and your family would be completely focused on one another, laughing, talking and listening about each other’s busy days.

    Though hard to do in a home with electronics in every room, this quality family time is easy to achieve with a hot tub. ThermoSpas 4- to 5-person hot tubs create the perfect environment for you and your family to take a break from the distractions of life and relax with each other.

    ThermoSpas offers a number of hot tubs that are ideal for families, fitting 4 to 5 people comfortably. We are going to focus on four of these models below. Our 4-5 person hot tubs are popular choices because they are large enough for families, intimate enough for couples and provide a serene space for you to relax by yourself. Everyone in the family can get their own personal massage in our 4-5 person hot tubs.

    Concord: Our Most Popular 4-5 Person Model

    It’s pretty easy to see why our Concord model is our most popular 4-5 person hot tub. This ideal mid-sized hot tub features two luxurious therapy seats, along with a love seat and corner therapy seat–perfect for a family of 4 or 5.  The two therapy seats include wrap around armrests for comfort, and are angled toward each other to allow for easy conversation.

    If you ever need a quiet and relaxing evening alone, just lay your head against our optional pillow jets and let one of our dual therapy seats massage your entire body. For a romantic evening with the one you love, our love seat offers intimate relaxation. It is separated from the corner therapy seat by a V-shaped foot well, which gives both your feet and calves a powerful massage.

    The loveseat and corner therapy seat also offer a built-in grab bar to keep you and your children safe. And with a removable ice bucket just above the filter, you and your children will be able to sip on your favorite drinks while having family fun in the hot tub.

    Every inch of the Islander is designed to give four bathers the most relaxing spa experience possible.

    With all of the seats facing each other, the Islander is a great place for conversation. Each seating area includes a sweeping armrest and soft textured built-in pillows for ultimate comfort. As with all of our spas, you can customize the Islander to meet your needs and budget.

    To enhance your relaxation experience or to just have more fun with your kids, you can add a stereo with built-in speakers to your Islander. Your children will love listening to music in the spa. The only problem you may run into is getting them out of it.

    thermospas healing spa hot tub

    Healing Spa: Designed for Ease of Use

    Don’t be fooled by the name of this spa. Just because it’s built for therapy doesn’t mean it’s not also built for family fun and entertainment. Our Healing Spa is one of the most versatile spas we make. It’s large enough to comfortably seat four adults and even has a raised seating area for a child. Bathers can relax in two deep therapy seats loaded with jets, or stretch out on a lounge to enjoy a back and neck massage. The therapy seats are angled to promote conversation, making it a great hot tub for family conversations.

    We designed the Healing Spa’s valve control knobs, filter canisters and entry/exit access to be so easy to use that our spa is the first ever to have received the Arthritis Foundation’s “Ease of Use” Commendation. Optional lighted grab bars also make the Healing Spa especially enjoyable and safe for children and people with limited mobility or arthritis.

  3. Fun Quotes About Hot Tubs

    Leave a Comment

    ThermoSpas likes to have a little fun from time to time. This week, we caught ourselves looking up a few quotes about hot tubs. From celebrities to politicians to authors, there are some fun thoughts on the hot tub and why they love them so much.

    “I feel sexy when I get out of the hot tub – your skin is fresh and you’ve put up your hair without looking.” –Shania Twain

    Shania has the right idea. A hot tub refreshes the body, makes you feel relaxed, and can even give you that sexy glow we all hope for. If we had to guess, Shania Twain probably has a nice two person hot tub that’s perfect for personal use. A simple indoor hot tub like our Maui Aquatic Series hot tub perhaps, a compact and energy efficient tub perfect for two or three people to relax and revive their bodies.

    Jane Smiley, the award-winning American novelist uses her hot tub not only to relax but to soak up a little literary knowledge while she’s at it.

    “Oh, that sound? I’m in the hot tub, reading a novel.” –Jane Smiley

    “Hot tubs are like relationships! They’re almost too hot when you first get in, then after a while it’s pure comfort… But if you try to stay in one forever, you will become dehydrated and die! But hey, somehow we all get to drinking and find ourselves waking up in one.” – Zachary Taylor

    Our 12th President sure had an interesting idea on relationships. He is right though, you should avoid staying in a hot tub for too long, or at least take a few breaks every 20 minutes or so to let your body cool down before getting back in. When you have a 4 person hot tub like the Concord, you can invite several guests over and enjoy the hot tub all together. Make sure to invite a few more than can fit so you can rotate and all stay cool enough not to dehydrate. And if you agree with President Taylor, try not to make it a couples night!

    “For short term relaxation, I take a hot tub. It’s my best way to unblock writer’s block, too.” –Ellen Hopkins

    Another great writer, Ellen Hopkins, uses her hot tub for relaxation and little inspiration. When sitting in a hot tub, you not only relax your body, you help relax your mind. You allow your cares, stresses, and worries to steam away like the rushing bubbles that are massaging your body. If you’re looking for inspiration or just a little down time before getting back into the swing of real life, the hot tub really is your best bet.

    And of course, one of our favorite- though fictional- quotes, a little advice to George Costanza from his favorite boss:

    “We all get a little cuckoo sometimes, George. I used to be like you. Berating personnel until they cried, calling managers on the field during a game, threatening to move the team to New Jersey, just to upset people. Then I found a way to relax. I’ve got two words to say to you, George… Hot Tub!” –George Steinbrenner from Seinfeld

    Don’t underestimate the power of the hot tub. As you can see from these examples, celebrities, politicians, writers, and singers know the ability a great hot tub can have on your body and mind. If you’d like to learn more about installing your own hot tub, contact ThermoSpas today, we’ll help you get the information you need to start you on your way to the most relaxing experience you’ll ever partake in.

  4. Our Five Favorite Spas in America

    Leave a Comment

    While we featured a few of the coolest hot tub spots around the world just recently, which included a few American hotels, there’s a lot more amazing places to visit in America alone. We found a collection of spas in America that are as glamorous as they are relaxing. Follow us now to five of our favorite spas in America.

    The Oaks at Ojai – Ojai, CA

    Ojai is about 80 miles north of Los Angeles and definitely worth the trip. A small yet quaint town with a good attitude and beautiful scenery. The Oaks at Ojai offer some of the most relaxing Spa treatments in California including fitness classes, healthy spa cuisine, and relaxing treatments including their saunas and hot tubs. Of course, if you’re interested in a great soak, Ojai is also known for their wonderfully relaxing hot springs. Make a reservation and travel through the forest to a clearing where you can dip yourself in nature’s own hot tub. Just like a Thermospa hot tub, hot springs help relax muscle and joints and rejuvenate the skin by helping release dead cells. With a package treatment at Oaks of Ojai along with a hot springs dip, you’ll feel more relaxed than an infant cradled in its mother’s arms.

    The Homestead – Hot Springs, VA

    Speaking of Hot Springs, The Homestead has helped men and women relax since the time of our founding fathers. Opened in 1766, Thomas Jefferson was known to be a frequent visitor of this historic hotel. Newly renovated with the launch of Canyon Ranch SpaClub, there is plenty to experience with treatments that will relax your mind. Mineral wraps and herbal scrubs feel amazing after taking a soak in the natural 104 degree hot springs. Spend twenty minutes reviving your muscles and refreshing your skin before returning to the spa’s center for modern and natural treatments to rejuvenate body and soul.

    Miraval Resort – Tucson, AZ

    Here’s a perfect spot to combine a peaceful experience of a spa with the invigorating energy of an exercise routine. Miraval Resort in Tucson’s Santa Catalina mountains combines fitness, spa treatments, hiking, adventure activities, and even special classes like photography to allow a person to recharge their batteries while discovering new adventure. Each guest is given a $130 credit to use toward private classes, exquisite dinners, and even drinks. Their spa and hot tubs are some of the best in the country with classes featuring aqua therapists to help find enlightenment and discover the healing powers of water.

    Terranea – Rancho Palos Verdes, CA

    What better place to rejuvenate the body and spirit than oceanside in a beautiful and modern resort. Terranea launched just this year and is already one of the hottest spots for Angelenos as well as all of America. With the option of booking small, private bungalows, you can stay for 3 to 7 nights. The retreat comes with a consultation and custom-chosen spa treatments to fill your specific needs. While their saunas and hot tubs can calm your every nerve, don’t underestimate the power of the Pacific and take a dip or go kayaking up the coast.

    Mii Amo Enchantment Resort – Sedona, AZ

    Welcome to Travel+Leisure’s number-one destination spa and resort. Part of the beautiful Sedona deserts, Mii Amo at the Enchantment Resort is the place to rejuvenate the mind, body, and spirit. With hour-long treatments that combine the power of guided healing visualization, energy balancing, and massage, anyone who stays here comes back home a different person. A relaxed spa retreat, there are cooking demos, makeup application classes, wine tastings and more. It’s truly an exquisite place to renew yourself.

    Although a few days away at one of these amazing resorts can help rejuvenate your mind, body, and spirit, what can you do for the other 360 days out of the year?  We suggest considering a Thermospas hot tub for all your relaxation needs. With varying sizes and customizable jets, you can create the perfect spa in your own house or patio. Let the warm water and active bubbles sooth your body and relax your mind. The luxury of a spa and resort in your own backyard.
