Below is a thorough overview of the best spas for 3 that can help you create the backyard of your dreams.

Let's dive in.

How to choose your spa

Before you start exploring all the available options, it is important to know exactly what you are looking for.

To begin, you need to have a very clear understanding of what you want to get out of your spa.

Is it relaxation and time to recharge?

Perhaps you suffer from chronic pain and want to find a natural way to deal with it.

Or perhaps you are struggling with the overwhelming stress that so many feel today and are looking for a way to deal with it.

While spas offer an impressive array of benefits simply because they are part of your normal routine, it will help you find the model with the features you need if you are aware of the overarching reason why you want one.

For example, if you suffer from chronic pain due to tension in your shoulders, you want a spa with the right jet configurations to address those problem areas.

On the other hand, if your goal is to combat stress, make sure you invest in a spa with LED lighting so you can harness the power of light therapy to create an even calmer environment.

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

Finally, you'll want to take into account the size of your yard and consider what size spa best suits your space.
