In this post, we will cover how much Hot Spring Spas Cost and some of the differences between the various models.
Things To Know Before You Buy
Buying a spa can be one of the best choices you’ve made in a long time! Or, if you don’t know what you are buying, it could become a major headache. When you buy a spa, you always want to do your research on the spa and the seller. If you are buying a used spa you will need to be very thorough in the questions you ask the seller. Here are some general (but important) things to know about buying and owning a spa:
The Brand Matters
When it comes to spas, you want to choose a brand that has a great track record. We recommend Hot Spring Spas because they are made with high-quality materials, they are built to last, they have a wide variety of styles and accessories available, they have great customer service, and they aren’t going anywhere any time soon!
Get A Size and Style That Fits Your Life
It’s easy to get excited when you are walking through the showroom dreaming of all the big parties you are going to throw in your new spa. But, it is important to be realistic. If there is a retired couple who doesn’t plan on entertaining guests, they should probably don’t need a spa that seats 6 people. They would most likely be happy with a nice, energy-efficient, compact, 2 seater. If there is a big family who loves spending time together, maybe a spa that sits at least 6 people is the way to go!
Spas Require On-Going Maintenance
Buying a spa is like buying a car. You have the initial cost of the spa and then there is ongoing maintenance that must be done to ensure a safe, healthy, and happy experience. Be prepared to spend money on water care products, replacement parts, electricity, and the occasional service call.

Hot Spring Spas Cost by Type
There are a few different types or levels of spas. The price you pay for your spa will vary between $3,000-$16,000+ based on which type you get. The different levels of spas are:
Entry Level – $3,000-$5,000
Entry-level spas are typically known as the “Plug-N-Play” spas. They are usually not very big and are made of lightweight materials. As far as features go, you can expect the basic jets and operational features. It’s a great solution for someone who doesn’t mind a small spa without the bells and whistles. Spas in this category are typically wired for 110 Volts.
Value Level – $4,000-8,000
Value level spas can vary in features and performance. These spas will usually have more jets, seating, and other features that add to your hot tubbing experience. They are also (usually) made of better materials than the entry-level spas.
Premium Level – $6,000-$10,000
Spas in the Premium level are made to last for over a decade. They are built with premium materials and come loaded with many more jets, waterfalls, lighting features, and other accessories. Warranty coverage may also be better and longer than the other levels of spas.
Luxury Level – $9,000-$16,000+
Luxury Spas are the highest quality and give the best long term experience. They can last over 20 years. They are optimized to have the lowest energy costs while delivering the best power and performance. At this level, your spa becomes the talking point of your backyard get-togethers. They carry a big wow factor because of the high level of detail and design.
We hope the information in this post was helpful! Always remember that buying a spa is an investment. Think about the long term value and enjoyment that comes from owning that spa.
