One of the best perks of having a hot tub is hosting hot tub parties with friends and family. There are a lot of factors involved in planning the perfect hot tub party, so we're breaking it down into a helpful guide. Read on, and then start planning your party!

Choose a Tub That Facilitates Conversation

If you don't already have a hot tub, or are in the market for a new tub, there are some things to consider when choosing a model if you plan on hosting frequently. 

Size

If you plan on hosting a lot, you should consider getting a larger tub. This gives everyone room to spread out, so you don't feel cramped. You can also consider getting a swim spa for an even bigger space, but keep in mind that despite their bigger size, swim spas generally don't have more seats. You and your guests can still enjoy the warm water, but will end up leaning along the edge

Special Features

Hot tubs and swim spas can come with many special features such as Bluetooth connectivity, lights, fountains and ice buckets. While these features aren't necessarily required to enjoy your hot tub, they can certainly make the experience more seamless and memorable. 

Make Sure Water is Balanced

Before the start of the party, check your water to ensure the water chemistry is balanced. Nothing ruins a hot tub party like smelly, foamy water or your guests skin being irritated from unbalanced water. Test your water the day before, or at least a few hours before your guests arrive and add the required chemicals. Give the water at least 30-60 minutes to circulate before entering the water. 

Plan the Menu

Planning the menu for a hot tub party can be tricky. You need to consider foods that are easy to eat and not too messy. Keep it simple by grilling or having a selection of finger foods. Use plastic utensils and serve drinks in cans or plastic cups. The last thing you need during your party is a broken glass in your hot tub! Have tables around your hot tub area for people to eat at or leave their food and drinks on.

Play Some Tunes

Get the party started with some fun music. If you have Bluetooth connectivity in your hot tub, you can play music directly through the tub. If not, get a waterproof speaker so you don't have to worry about water damage while jamming out. 

Bring Out the Toys

Toys can add another fun element to your hot tub party. This can be beach balls, small inflatables, rubber ducks, floating LED lights and even waterproof playing cards. Perhaps come up with some games to get everyone involved and having a good time!
