The Lowest Running Costs, Independently Tested and Proven

The cost of running a spa pool can be significant… unless you choose Hot Spring. We offer New Zealand’s most energy efficient spa pools, with running costs as little as $1 a day. This is a luxurious soak that won’t cost the earth.

How can such luxury come so cheap? Our insulation is carefully designed for maximum heat retention. Our covers are fully insulated and precisely engineered to form a perfect seal around the lip of your spa.

Then there’s our suite of technological innovations, from heat induction jets that recycle the warmth generated by the internal machinery, to our SilentFlo 5000 circulation system that keeps your water moving while using the same amount of power as a 40-watt light bulb.

5-6 person spa dimensions

Neither the smallest nor the largest spa pools available, the Hot Spring 5-6 person range is the perfect size for anyone who wants to balance comfort, cost-effectiveness, intimacy and the ability to entertain.

Dimensions vary from spa to spa, but as a general rule 5-6 person spas measure between 2.15 and 2.36m in length and width, and between 84cm and 97cm in height. Any smaller will see you enter 4-person territory, and larger sizes are considered suitable for 7+ people.

Benefits of a 5-6 person spa vs smaller spas?

A 5-6 person spa pool will be the obvious choice for many, but other buyers will ask themselves whether the added investment compared to a 2-4 person spa is worth it. Only you know whether choosing a medium-sized spa pool over a more compact version makes sense. It depends on your situation, but going larger brings some clear advantages:

  • More room means more comfort, particularly for anyone undertaking hydrotherapy, or households that are likely to have multiple people soaking at once.
  • The more the merrier! Larger spa pools are far better for socialising.

Best 5-6 person spa placement

Where will you place your 5-6 person spa pool? As fully portable and self-contained machines, Hot Spring spa pools can be placed almost anywhere with enough room and an even, stable surface. The most common option is an outdoor spa pool, which can be placed on pavers, concrete, decking or even a sturdy balcony. Indoor spa pools can be installed in a well ventilated sunroom or enclosed outdoor area. With a bit of excavation you even have the option of installing your Hot Spring as an inground spa pool, which can make it a truly organic addition to your home, while making entry and exit that little bit easier.

Hot Spring's range of 5-6 person spa pools offer you the ultimate flexibility in terms of placement. All you need is enough room, a level surface that is capable of taking the weight, access to the necessary water and power, and the ability to drain your spa.

Love my spas - x 4

I bought my first Hot Springs spa back in the 80’s. I purchased again in 1999, 2011, again when I moved to Las Vegas in 2019. I’ve only had Hot Springs because of the reliability, the energy efficiency and the warranty. I’ve had little problems with the spas but when I did the company stood behind the products, made the repairs, and if under warranty, no charge to me. We use the spa several days per week. Even in the summertime in Vegas I just turn the temperature down and it is a refreshing retreat and during the rest of the year, so nice. If ever considering purchasing a spa, get a Hot Springs Spa, you won’t be disappointed.

Quality that lasts

Congratulations Hot Spring. We just replaced our 1999 Sovereign with a 2019 Highlife Sovereign Spa. That's more than 19 years of use.

Why did we wait so long!
We had a Grandee many years back which lasted many years. We said if we ever redo the (back)yard we would get another Hot Spring spa. Well this year we finished out new yard and bought the Vanguard. Why did we wait so long! It is fabulous and its not even the fall or winter season. My family and my GRAND KIDS love it.....Best investment for quality.
