Everyone loves a garden party as they are such a great way to socialise with friends and family! Whether you are planning a barbecue in the sun, or a gathering around a firepit in the cold, we have compiled some ideas to ensure garden party success!

Hot Tubs For The Garden

Hot tubs can be a great addition to your garden – they can be used in any weather all year round and are the perfect place to wind down after a long week.

This is probably our most expensive suggestion for a garden party, as most hot tubs will range from about £400 all the way to over £1,000, however to some this is worth the investment.

Here is a range of options:

1. MSPAUK Tekapo Latest 2021 Mspa Portable Hot Tub

This 4-person tub would be great for a small gathering. To name a few features, it has smart filtration, UVC sanitation technology and 36 degree quick heating.

2. Lay-Z-Spa Saint Tropez Hot Tub

This is a 4-6 person hot tub, with an air jet massage system and floating LED lights. But what makes this even cooler is that it has Wi-Fi control with Alexa and Google assistant.

3. Lay-Z-Spa Maldives Luxury Hot Tub

This is a 5-7 person, UK award-winning and best-selling hot tub. It has all of the perks you may need, including freeze shield technology so that you can use it all year round.
