Below you’ll find a thorough breakdown of the best 3-person hot tubs that can help you create the backyard escape of your dreams.

Let’s dive in.

How to Choose Your Hot Tub

Before you begin exploring all the options available, it’s important to know exactly what it is you’re looking for.

For starters, you should have a very clear understanding of what you want to get out of your hot tub.

Is it relaxation and time to recharge?

Maybe you suffer from chronic pain and want to find a natural way to manage it.

Or it may be possible you’re struggling with the overwhelming stress so many are feeling these days and are searching for a way to cope.

While hot tubs boast an impressive range of benefits by simply being part of your regular routine, being aware of the overarching reason you want one will help you find the model with the features you need.

For example, if you struggle with chronic pain from tension in your shoulders, you’ll want to find a hot tub with the right jet configurations to target those problem areas.

On the other hand, if your goal is to combat stress, ensuring you invest in a spa with LED lighting can help you utilize the power of light therapy to create an even more calming environment.

You’ll also want to know your budget before you begin searching. This will help you narrow down your options and give you a solid starting point in your search.

Lastly, you’ll want to consider the size of your yard and consider what size hot tub would best complement your space.
