So … who doesn’t like a hot tub?
Hot tubs conjure up images of relaxed luxury: warm, soothing water; time to chill out; a chance to let those worries melt away in the comfort of a luxurious experience in a hot tub … There are numerous types of hot tubs: wood fired; whirlpool; bubbly; with or without coloured lights … the list goes on.
You can even find portable or inflatable hot tubs and at the opposite end of the spectrum, ones cast in concrete as a permanent fixture.
In recent years, hot tubs have become synonymous with glamping here in the UK. A hot tub can have pride of place next to nomadic-style yurt or adjacent a heated, spacious Wigwam® Cabin, perfect partners in the world of glamorous camping.
Sitting in a hot tub encourages you to take time out, and enjoy the heated H2O as the sun shines or as the stars appear in the night sky.
Open that bottle of bubbly … chink those glasses … sit back … relax.
Enjoying the health benefits of heated water has been with us since ancient times. They can relax the muscles and allow your brain to unplug!
Today you can enjoy a glamping hot tub experience with Wigwam® Holidays with having to worry about long haul flights, as all our sites are based here in the UK.
With the glamping industry becoming ever more luxurious, hot tubs are increasingly high on customer’s ‘wish lists’.
With the emphasis being upon sustainability, the wood fired variety of hot tub is a great partner with timber glamping cabins.
The northerly nation of Sweden, famous for pop group Abba, Ikea and … meatballs … claims a big slice of hot tub heritage.
Swedish hot tub designs are usually crafted from timber, heated by a fire lit near or beneath the circular ‘barrel’-like frame made from vertical staves.
The wood fired hot tub does need some TLC to keep it up to temperature, and the use of paddles to stir the water is always one of the fun aspects of enjoying this type of hot tub. And that smell of fresh timber is always present, enhancing the sensory experience.
A small number of steps or a stool is required to climb safely into the hot tub and there’s usually a lid that can be used to retain the heat.
Yet it’s a real feather in your cap to keep the fire burning and the water hot. And it’s all part of the glamping experience, where Mother Nature is just a few feet away and you feel part and parcel of the natural surroundings.
