Spa Versus Hot Tub
Hot tubs and spas have become luxury items desired by many homeowners. They are in hotels and resorts all across the globe. People use them to enjoy time with friends or to spend time relaxing after a long day.
We call them spas or hot tubs interchangeably but did you know, there is a difference? They have similar functions, and at the end of the day, sitting in either with your favorite beverage is an amazing thought. But knowing the difference between a hot tub and a spa can help you make a better decision as to which one is right for your home and your daily use.
Differences Between a Spa And A Hot Tub
- A hot tub sits above the ground and can be made from acrylic, vinyl, or fiberglass.
- They are smaller than spas and generally portable.
- They come in fixed designs, with sitting made specifically for relaxation.
- Hot tubs can be plugged into your regular outlet, or if they use 220v, you may need an electrician to set up your wiring.
- The sole purpose of a hot tub is to relax and unwind.
- Spas can also be used to relax and unwind, and have some jets and seats for this purpose.
- They are traditionally built in-ground and can also be used for exercise and swimming.
- They are larger than hot tubs, with extra space for movement.
- The jets, while they can be relaxing, can also create resistance to be used with your exercise program.
- In-ground spas will need to have the ground dug up and will need water and electrical features to be installed.
Behind every Passion Spas design is a foundation of health and wellness, the result of having invested so much time, so much creativity, and so many resources into developing an impressive range of massage and therapy options. Here’s a quick breakdown of what those options look like.
- Aqua Rolling Massage ~ The Aqua Rolling Massage uses specially designed recesses in the spa shell to push water up the back, working muscles as it goes.
- Intense Therapy Zone ~ This massage feature provides a concentrated, penetrating massage to the lower regions of the back, and the intensity of the pressure can be adjusted and customized to meet individual needs.
- Therapy Wave Zone ~ Available in some models, the Therapy Wave Zone is a massage that starts at the lower back and slowly works its way up to the shoulders and neck. The sensation mimics a cushioned rolling pin running up and down the back, soothing muscles along the way.
- Waterfall Massage ~ There’s also the Waterfall Massage, a continuous stream of cascading, warm water falling gently on the neck and shoulders, relaxing the upper back and neck muscles.
- Levitation Bed ~ In some of our spas, we offer the most innovative massage feature available in the industry: the Levitation Bed. The Levitation Bed creates a floating sensation because the body is completely enveloped in a soothing massage that can be adjusted for intensity and effect. An individual can lie either face down or face up, receiving a full head-to-toe massage.

Advantages Of The Spa
Spas are popular with people that have in-ground pools and don’t plan on moving anytime soon. Your spa can be built with a pool or custom-made. You can use the spa for entertaining, relaxing, water therapy, and exercise.
Space. Spas are larger and have more space for entertaining. They have plenty of legroom so your guests aren’t crowded. You can customize the size you want and where you want your seating to be.
Features. You can pick from a variety of different features for a spa, including bubble jets, massage jets, and underwater lights in many diverse colors. You can mix and match the additional features to create your perfect spa.
Versatile. In the built-in spa vs. hot tub debate, spas win this category easily. Spas can be designed as stand-alone pools, or as part of your existing pool. They can be created as swim spas, for relaxation, or both. It can be built in and look like a part of your property, easily, so the transitions are seamless.
Advantages of the Hot Tub
Hot tubs are fantastic for people who tend to move frequently and want to take their hot tub with them. They can also be used for entertaining and relaxing, although swimming and exercise are not common in a hot tub. Let’s look at some of the pros and cons of a hot tub.
Cost-effective. Hot tubs generally are less expensive than spas. They don’t have the installation costs that are associated with in-ground spas and are smaller than a swim spa.
Easy to store and maintain. When not in use, you can cover a hot tub and store it away until you’re ready to use it again. Filters are easy to replace and cleaning chemicals are easy to add.
Energy efficient. One big hot tubs vs spa difference is that hot tubs are more energy efficient than spas. They are good at keeping the water warm, and they can be covered up to keep the heat in.
Passion Spas include an exclusive Synergy™ water purification system that combines exceptional filtration with the latest in water sanitation technology. Give us a call today or stop down to our showroom to view your next spa or hot tub.
