What’s the Best Gazebo for A Hot Tub?

Samantha Richards

If you’re a hot tub owner, you’ll know that there’s nothing like beating the cold weather with a toasty soak in the bubbles when it comes to autumn and winter. However, owning a hot tub in winter can be a tough task. Having to clean it out with chemicals and scoop out leaves and any other debris that can fall in while you’re enjoying your hot tub is time consuming and inconvenient – and we’d all rather just be able to jump straight in the tub without the fuss!

You’ve come here looking for a solution and we’re here to help you find the best gazebo for your hot tub.

Please note: We don’t recommend leaving gazebos out in your gardens for prolonged periods of time. You must ensure your gazebo is adequately anchored too, as weather conditions can change throughout the day, as well as remembering to keep your gazebo well ventilated..

What size gazebo for a hot tub?

First things first, you should measure your garden and gazebo to assess what size gazebo would be right for you. Typically you need to leave a diameter of 0.5m larger than that of the hot tub or Lay-z Spa when choosing your gazebo. Here’s how that would look in relation to different sizes of a Lay-z Spa and what size gazebo you’d need to accommodate them.
