1. Hot tub enclosure ideas

A hot tub is a big investment, so covering it with a chic surround will protect it from the elements and help keep it in tip-top condition.

Consider adding a smart gazebo that features a solid roof and open sides. The roof will provide shelter to ensure you can use your hot tub in any weather, while the open sides will allow you to retain that outdoorsy feel.

A solid roof also provides the opportunity to install lighting and speakers for the ultimate entertaining space.

2. Enclosed hot tub ideas

Building a garden room to house your hot tub means you can add luxury features, such as a bar or an outdoor kitchen.

Having cold drinks close by to the hot tub will definitely increase the wow factor. No need to hobble up the garden path barefoot back to your kitchen instead, lean out the hot tub to grab a beer.

Your enclosed hot tub can be like your very own home-spa and is perfect for entertaining all ages, who can dry off in warmth and privacy.

3. Round hot tub surround ideas

A round hot tub is very aesthetically pleasing that can instantly add a sense of calm and tranquillity.

Ramp up this sense of relaxation by taking some inspiration from Balinese outdoor spas, and add an exotic bamboo-style open surround over your hot tub.

Combine this surround with tropical plants, such as tree palms and ferns, and you’ll be transported to a faraway place in the comfort of your back garden.

4. Hot tub gazebo designs

Planning to add a hot tub on an elevated deck, roof terrace or balcony? Then a solid-roofed awning attached to the side of the property will provide shelter from strong breezes, while still allowing the far-reaching views to be enjoyed.

Adding additional skylights into the roof of the awning will ensure natural light floods the hot tub during the day and creates star-gazing views at night.

5. Enclosed hot tub gazebo ideas

You might not have this breathtaking beach setting, however, you can still recreate a similarly striking focal point in your outdoor area.

Opt for an ornate wooden gazebo with open sides around your hot tub and you will bring instant focus to this luxurious feature in your garden.

6. Timber slatted bench hot tub surround

After a relaxing session in your hot tub, you’ll want somewhere comfortable to sit and dry off. This hot tub features a Swedish sauna-style timber surround seating area.

This is a great way to incorporate a relaxed seating area into your hot tub’s design. The stylish treated timber also looks great and creates a relaxing natural aesthetic to complement the fresh water of the hot tub.

7. Hot tub decking area

The location of your hot tub can have a huge impact on its usability and relaxation environment. This hot tub has been conveniently placed on a sunny patio area.

Its close proximity to the house is convenient; making it easier to access. Some outdoor furniture is also helpful in creating a relaxing exterior living space.

9. Hot tub lighting surround

Installing lighting both on your hot tub and in the area nearby helps to create a relaxing atmosphere and a unique ambience.

Exterior surround lighting for your hot tub also means that just because the sun goes down, it doesn’t mean that you have to leave the warmth of your hot tub.
