Serve Festively Refreshing Drinks This Season

What Are Your Guests Sipping On, In and Out of the Spa?

Here are some favorite festive spaside beverages our Facebook followers suggested:
  • Eggnog
  • 
Sparkling Water with a slice of lime
  • Vodka on the rocks
  • Wine, any kind
Holiday entertaining in your hot tub is one of the joys of the season. No get together would be complete without beverages for your guests to sip on both in and out of the hot tub. Provide a variety of drinks to appeal to all your guests as they soak, socialize and relax. There are plenty of festive hot beverages to choose from including the hot toddy, seasonal teas, egg nog and mulled cider. These are all great drinks to enjoy after a soak, when your body temperature has cooled down. But when soaking in warm water, there’s nothing like a cool beverage to whet your whistle and keep you feeling comfortable while providing hydration. For your upcoming holiday gathering that involves having guests soak in your spa, we recommend this chilled spiced toddy recipe. This is a twist from the traditional “toddy”, as it is non-alcoholic and served chilled, not hot. Spiced Apple Hot Tub Toddy To get the full flavor, it’s best to prepare this mulled cider recipe on the stove, and serve it slightly chilled. Ingredients- Serves 6
  • 6 cups apple cider
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 6 whole cloves
  • 6 whole allspice berries
  • Orange peel strips
  • Lemon peel strips
  • Cinnamon-flavored syrup
Directions: Bring apple cider and spices to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from heat, cool to room temperature, and remove spices and lemon peel. Refrigerate or pour over ice, and add cinnamon-flavored syrup just before serving.  

 

What to Grow in Your Hot Tub Planters

Tips for Backyard Color From Now Through Springtime

Fall is a favorite time of year to be outdoors as well as a good season for planting. Plants no longer have to endure the heat and dry weather of summer, and the planters around your spa don’t require as much work as a yard or garden. Just be sure your hot tub planters drain well before your add soil. To create a welcome splash of color and drama in the spring, plant bulbs this fall. There can be a variety of bulbs in one container that will produce blooms at different times, all season long. You can also stagger bulbs in layers for a spring planter “arrangement” of flowers growing at differing heights. For instant color, try these favorites in your hot tub planters: • Coleus – So easy to grow, the purple-to-rust leaves of the coleus reflect the best of fall color and complement the natural shades of your Sundance® planters. • Pyracantha – Their lovely red, orange or yellow berries will last a long time. You can also train pyracantha to grow on trellises near your spa (watch out for the thorns). • Evergreens – Boxwood, juniper, wintergreen, and holly bring a welcome touch of green to your hot tub scene year round. These slow-growing shrubs are perfect for containers. They tolerate cold and snow, and can grow to dramatic heights. Or use multiple planters to create a “wall” of greenery for your hot tub. With these brisk days and chilly nights, you’ll be drawn to the warmth of your hot tub. Make your hot tub setting even more beautiful with seasonal color, and your Sundance will also be visually inviting, all winter long.

3 Outdoor Hot Tub Trends for 2012

What to Look for This Season

"Outdoor Living" was listed in the #2 spot among "Top Home Trends of 2012" on the website, GoodHousekeeping.com. Outdoor hot tubs are definitely a popular addition for homeowners who like to spend time outdoors year 'round. This year, we're spreading the word about three "trends" we're bringing to outdoor hot tubs:
  • Hot tubs that combine an entertainment center with a meditative retreat
  • Energy efficient spas
  • Low-maintenance water purification with reduced chemical usage


  • Outdoor hot tubs attract friends and family who love to have a good time together, but they are also natural havens for individuals seeking relief from stress. The 780™ Series spas are great examples: they are sized right, easy to take care of, and beautifully styled. Instead of going out, people who own a Sundance® 780 Series outdoor hot tub make the most of their backyards on the weekends. Relaxing with a cool drink, stretching after exercise, or just sitting together and talking in the warmth of the hot tub – a modern outdoor hot tub can be a social spot and a source of well being.

    Summer Hot Tub Accessories

    Spruce Up with Spa Accessories

    Ready, set, SUMMER! It will be here soon. I'm looking forward to the long days of sunshine, weekend barbeques, and concerts in the park. It's time to dust off the patio furniture (or take it out of the garage), clean the grill, and add some new hot tub accessories. Hot tub covers are important hot tub accessories for summer. Vinyl hot tub covers are very durable, meant to withstand the elements, but they need to be replaced every few years. This time of year, it's important to make sure yours is not sagging or cracking. Your hot tub cover protects your hot tub, keeps the water cleaner and helps to hold in the heat. It's one of the spa accessories that can increase your hot tub's overall energy efficiency.

    Why We Love Energy-Efficient Hot Tubs

    Energy Efficient Spas Cost Less to Run!

    We know why we love our Sundance hot tubs – they give us a luxurious place to get away from the stress in our lives and be pampered by a rejuvenating massage. But with recent engineering and manufacturing advances, Sundance hot tubs are also more energy efficient than ever. In fact, the new Elite Series hot tubs save more on operating costs than any other hot tubs in their class – under $10.00 per month estimated standby cost (60°F/15°C). Our other hot tub models use less energy than you might think, too. Sundance uses foam fill insulation, which means insulating foam covers the entire area along the shell, inside the cabinet and next to the floor. This enables them to retain heat more effectively than less energy-efficient spas that contain only partial insulation. Check out these other energy-saving features that make Sundance some of the most energy efficient hot tubs on the market: READ MORE >
