What Are Compact Hot Tubs?

Compact hot tubs are designed to accommodate between one and three people at a time. Because they’re aimed at space-efficiency, they come in various shapes such as square, rectangle, circle and triangle, so you know there's a compact hot tub that will suit your unique space.

What sets our compact hot tubs apart is their ability to still offer the luxurious experience you’d expect from a Hot Spring product, all in a compact and cost-effective package. These machines are often small enough to run on a standard power outlet, making it a breeze to set up and start enjoying your new sanctuary within just a few hours.


Our compact hot tubs typically accommodate 2-3 people and rarely exceed two metres in any dimension. For example, at one end of the spectrum we have the spacious Stride, a three-person, rectangle model measuring 213cm x 165cm x 74cm. 

At the other end, we have the intimate Mini, a two-person model measuring 183cm x 119cm x 71cm. 

Our compact hot tub range also includes some of the models in the Fastlane Pools collection. The R200 RecSport can create an endless swim-in-place current, despite measuring just 3.7m x 2.3m x 1.27m!
