Declaring themselves as the world’s number one hot tub company, HotSpring is one of the most popular hot tub brands, that is for sure. 


They introduced the first fully insulated hot tub with underwater lighting back in 1978, which set an industry standard across the board. They’re known for innovation and a range of best-selling hot tubs, popular with customers across the globe – quite literally. Available worldwide through authorised dealers, they are a giant in the industry with good reason. 


Pricing is not freely available on the brand’s website, with advice to contact your local dealer for pricing and details. However, we did some digging on some dealer websites and these are the sort of prices you will be looking at. 

Freeflow between £4,250 and £6,600
These are plug and play hot tubs designed to be mobile and easeful. 

Hotspot between £13,995 and £21,995
An affordable relaxation option that is a step up from plug and play.

Limelight between £10,495 and £23,495
Style and performance bundled into one hot tub.

Highlife between £14,995 and £21,995
The best from the brand offering function and form.


The brand offers a comprehensive five year component warranty when you register your hot tub with them, but warranties vary from model to model. For example, the Highlife and Limelight collections both include a variation on a seven year shell warranty, whereas the Freeflow and Hotspot ranges offer five year warranties for a similar area of the hot tub. Consult the warranties on the manufacturers website to find out the specific details and exclusions at the time of purchase.

There are warranties available for every type of hot tub they sell, which can be viewed on their website. The brand sells a variety of different hot tubs; Michael Phelps, Twilight, Legend, Clarity, and Getaway. But, if we look at their UK warranty, it states that they offer a five year warranty on the spa structure and the shell surface, as well as offering a two year warranty on equipment, plumbing and jets, and a one year warranty on LED systems, Dream lighting, Ozonator, Mast3rPur, and audio equipment where applicable for the model you own. It is best to check the warranty for your specific hot tub at the time of purchase.

Again, it is a six seater with multiple seating options, and 40 jets that use the brand’s famed PowerPro technology.

A final six-seater but with varying seat heights so you can be in shallow water or go for a deeper experience, and it has the brand’s SmartTub upgrade.
