A hot tub adds that little something extra to any holiday, don’t you think? Today, we’ll go over some of the reasons why hot tub holidays have won over the hearts of British glamping enthusiasts as well as some tips for planning your perfect getaway.
4 Reasons You Should Book a Cabin With a Hot Tub
1. A bit of pampering after a long day out
If you’re after a more active glamping holiday, filled with hiking, mountain biking, or another outdoor activity of your choosing, finishing the day with a soak in your very own private hot tub is the perfect way to unwind. It helps your muscles relax and for your mind to switch off after your day’s adventures.
Even if your day has been spent relaxing by a fire pit or wandering around local sights and food spots, ending the day in a private hot tub helps add an additional layer of pampering to your holiday experience.
2. Add a touch of romance
If you’re planning a romantic getaway, maybe for an anniversary or Valentine’s Day, a cabin with a hot tub is a surefire way to boost the romance factor. Cuddling up in the hot tub while sipping on something bubbly adds a touch of decadence that helps you forget about the outside world and focus on each other.
3. Warm up in cold weather
Here at Wigwam® HQ, we’re big fans of year-round camping and glamping, and a hot tub is just one way to make outdoor living more comfortable during the colder months. It allows you to take in the beautiful, sprawling landscape around you while staying warm and cosy. If you’re lucky enough to see some snowfall, few things are more magical than watching the flakes fall while soaking your troubles away in a hot tub.
4. Relax like never before
A soak in the hot tub has many health benefits - it helps reduce stress, improve sleep, and even offer pain relief. It can be difficult to actually switch off from work mode on holiday when we remain so reachable thanks to our smartphones and wireless internet connection.
A dip in a hot tub has a funny way of helping you set all that aside and enjoy some quality time with loved ones. Whether it’s making memories with your partner or catching up with friends, a hot tub helps create memorable moments that elevate any staycation.
Hot tub tips
- Know how to operate your hot tub. Your accommodation should provide a guide to make sure you know what you’re doing. At Wigwam® Holidays sites, you’ll usually find classic wood-fired hot tubs full of rustic charm. These take a couple of hours to warm up, so get the fire going before you start dinner prep to enjoy a post-meal dip.
- No glass in the tub. This would present a safety risk. Instead, ask your accommodation if they have plastic champagne flutes or cups available. Alternatively, leave the beverages to before and after your hot tub experience. Either way, don’t forget to drink plenty of water to avoid dehydration!
- Make sure to supervise kids using the hot tub - kids under five are generally not recommended to use a hot tub. Make sure they don’t submerge their head in the tub either.
- And finally, don’t forget to pack your swimming costumes!
