  1. The Best Hot Tub to Buy in 2019 - The Award Suite Spa!

    We are super excited to announce our brand-new Hot Tub being added to the Award Leisure range for 2019 - The Award Suite Spa! Award Suite Spas are made in Florida and deliver a quality health and lifestyle experience and are built to last, manufactured using cutting edge, environmentally-friendly technology. 

     



    The Award Suite Spas are made from a high-density recycled thermal plastic called polyethylene which ensures that the spa is durable to all weathers and guaranteed not to split, peel or rot. The spa is so easy to maintain that it will look like a showroom model, even after many years.

    Many other spas use hundreds of pounds worth of fibre glass, steel, wood and resins which make the spa heavy and more expensive. The Award Suite Spas’ rotational moulded technology requires less work and material, making them a much more affordable and earth-friendly product.

     

    Both Award Suite models feature multi-level seating with corner bucket seats offering a wrap-around massage and a higher cool down seat that acts as a step into the spa. In the lounger version, the head to toe therapy lounge provides total relaxation – so you slide right in for complete comfort without floating out of the seat!

     

    The Award Suite Spas are super easy to install, you’ll be soaking away before you know it! Just like your standard household appliances, the hot tub plugs into a conventional 13 Amp power supply, cutting out the need for expert electrician installation! As they are easy to move around, they are great for those with limited access or minimal garden space. Simply set them where you want on a level surface and fill with a hose!

    The Award Suite Spa is great for family time.

    The insulation within the Award Suite Spa is approved by the Californian Energy Commission, meaning you are guaranteed to have the lowest running costs – no more worrying about the cost of leaving your hot tub heated all year round! Water maintenance is also a breeze, being assisted by the built-in water purification system.

     

    The adjustable stainless-steel jets are recessed into the shell, meaning comfort and relaxation is guaranteed. The smaller jets offer an intense massage flow, which will help to release muscle tension and relieve pain.

     

    So, what do you get with the Award Suite Spa?

    I’m glad you asked! Check out the amazing features that come as standard:

    • Plush cushioned headrests for added comfort
    • Built-in drinks cooler, holding enough drinks for everyone in the spa to have the ultimate party!

    The Award Suite Spa has a handy drinks cooler and table built in.

    • A fold out table which sits neatly above the water to stand your drinks on or play games. The table easily tucks away when not in use to open up the space in the spa.
    • Lit adjustable waterfall.
    • Colour changing lighting in and above the waterline to create the perfect atmosphere for relaxation.
    • Stylish cabinet corner lighting.
    • Recessed adjustable stainless-steel jetting focusing on tension areas to offer the ultimate in hydrotherapy.
    • A built-in weather, UV and fade-resistant umbrella covering 44sqft, with a 360-degree swivel design. This means you can position the umbrella over or next to the spa, being perfect for creating a social space if there’s too many people to fit into the spa!

    The Award Suite Spa has a built in umbrella for protection and privacy.

    • Large non-slip, curved, solid steps with a handy built-in storage area for your chemicals, towels or slippers. You even get planters for either side of the steps to create a beautifully-designed garden centrepiece!
    • A sturdy handrail for easy access in and out of the spa.
    • A thermal, water resistant cover is also included, locking in the heat for complete energy efficiency. You also get a handy cover lifter that sits nicely behind the spa, supporting the lifting of the cover.

    Keeping your Award Suite Spa is easy with a handy cover lifter.

    Can you believe you get all of this included?! It’s crazy! All these features offer the ultimate destination for relaxation, health and entertainment.

     

    The elegant Award Suite Spas are around 7ft square and available with or without a lounger. The lounger model seats up to 5 people, or the all seated version accommodates up to 6 people.  The spa is also available in 2 beautiful colours – black diamond shell with a black cabinet or a white diamond shell with a grey cabinet and the jets, headrests, steps and foldaway table have all been carefully colour coordinated to match the cabinet and shell.

    The Award Suite Spa looks beautiful as a garden centrepiece.

    Do you let out Holiday Homes and Parks?

    If you have your own holiday park or cottage, having a hot tub can be a major selling feature, and with their popularity only increasing, they’re a sound investment into your holiday home or park.


    Did you know that you can only use hot tubs that have passed commercial regulations?


    While this may narrow your choice, there really is no need to look elsewhere! The Coast Spas Regency Baroness 30 is a favourite for our clients with holiday homes, parks and hotels. This is partly because of its compact design and beautiful aesthetics, but the main selling feature with not just this model, but all the Coast Spas range we offer, is that they adhere to certain public health codes and regulations for Hot Tubs in a commercial application, called the HSG282 compliance rules. 

     

    The Coast Spas Regency Baroness 30 is perfect for holiday letting

     

    It is important that if you are installing a hot tub in your property, lodge or hotel for public use, you understand the importance of clean water and the maintenance aspects with a hot tub. You wouldn’t be happy to bathe in a stranger’s bathwater, so why would your tenants?


    One of the best features of a Coast Spas Hot Tub is the filtration. Conventional filtration usually has the filter sitting in the water with the bather – meaning you’re sitting with all the hair, body fats, oils, dead skin cells and other unpleasant things get stuck! Ew!


    While it may initially be the cheaper option, you will end up paying more in the long run with more chemical consumption, water changes and ultimately dirty water that does not look appealing or hygienic.

     

    Commercial grade hot tub

     

    With Coast Spas, the filter sits completely outside of the bathing area which means when it is removed for cleaning, it does not contaminate the spa water and consumes less chemicals. This means less maintenance, so you can concentrate on the things that matter instead of looking after your Hot Tub constantly!


    For more information on Coast Spas’ hydro-cyclonic filtration, watch their exclusive video below!


    This filtration system features on the Baroness meaning with the help of your chemicals you can rest assured your water is safe and clean for people to use all year round. For more information or advice on Hot Tubs in a holiday let, and the HSG282 compliance rules feel free to give you a call and we would be happy to discuss. 


    The baroness comes with 30 hydrotherapy jets that are designed to give you the most effective massage. The Baroness also features hand moulded handrails for easy in and out access plus a waterfall handrail that not only looks fantastic but is practical, plus the sound of relaxing trickling water adds to the whole Spa experience that our customers find very therapeutic.

     

    Hot Tubs that are suitable for commercial use

     

    The Baroness seats up to 4 adults, with each seat offering a unique massage. The Baroness comes complete with a plush headrest, beverage holders and can run off a 13-amp conventional household supply, just like a kettle! (nice Moroccan pics attached.)


    We’ve included a handy little video with everything you need to know about the Baroness.



    Choosing the right Hot Tub for your holiday let is a big decision, with many things to consider. If you have any questions or want more information, get in touch with us today or Download a Free Buyer’s Guide online!

     

    Including a hot tub in your holiday let is a great way to attract tenants

     

    Discover National Parks Festival is all about celebrating our stunning British countryside, so whatever you’ve got planned for the 6th – 21st April 2019, make sure you go and experience what one of our iconic National Parks have to offer!

  3. 4 Reasons Why Hot Tubs are Perfect for Mother’s Day

    Your mum deserves the World, although it can sometimes be hard to find a gift to show how much you appreciate her. Today we’re here to show you why giving a Hot Tub as a Mother’s Day gift is the perfect solution!

     

    We know what you’re thinking – buying a Hot Tub is a pretty big investment! However, buying a Hot Tub for your mum goes way beyond just the gift itself.

     

    A Hot Tub is a long-term gift

    Everyone loves receiving flowers and chocolates as gifts! But when the flowers have wilted and the chocolates have been eaten, what does your mum have left to remind her of the thought you put into it?

     

    Hot Tubs are designed to stand the test of time, with many lasting over 15 years! Every time your mum uses it, she will be reminded of you, and how much you appreciate everything she does.

     

     

    Mums Deserve time off

    Hot Tubs are the perfect excuse for putting your health and well-being first. Setting aside time on a regular basis to soak in a bubbly Hot Tub has so many health benefits! They’re also great for spending more time with your family – so ban the technology and get the family together for an evening of catching up and reconnecting.

     

    Hot Tubs are a great place for the family to reconnect this Mothers Day

     

    A Hot Tub is a once-in-a-lifetime, Luxury Purchase

    Seriously though, who wouldn’t want to have their own private Hot Tub haven?! Upgrade your garden, improve your mental and physical health, or just because you can – there’s no such thing as a bad excuse! Group together as a family to put money towards spoiling your mum with a Hot Tub – an impossible gift to beat!

     

    Just because your mum will be blown away by an extravagant luxury gift doesn’t mean it has to cost you the Earth. Our Hot Tubs come with 0% Finance over 3 years!

  4. The Step by Step Guide to the Ultimate Alfresco Dinner Party

    Today is officially the first day of British Springtime! We made it! Prepare yourselves for skipping lambs, beautiful daffodils, delicious Easter chocolate and of course… the countdown to Summer! There’s nothing we love more than spending as much time as possible in our gardens. Find out how to make the most of your garden this summertime with an alfresco dinner party!

    Alfresco Garden Dinner Party

    Step 1: Pick a meal theme

    While this first step is optional, picking a theme can help to narrow down your menu choice, saving you time! Some popular alfresco dinner party themes are:

    • Mediterranean
    • Moroccan
    • Vegan
    • Japanese
    • Bite-sized finger foods
    • Mexican
    • Rustic BBQ/campfire
    • Old family recipes

    Pro Tip: Choose a menu that looks spectacular to watch while being cooked in an outdoor kitchen, keeping your guests entertained and avoids you being left out of the socialising.

     

    Choosing the perfect menu for an alfresco dinner party

     

    Step 2: Set the perfect ambience

    Nature is beautiful – so use it to your advantage! Create table centrepieces using flowers from your garden or hang up fairy lights around your fence to add more lighting. If you’re hosting your garden party in the middle of summer, don’t forget to stock up on citronella candles to keep the bugs away while looking delightful!

    Pro Tip: The bigger the table, the better the centrepiece! Depending on how many guests you have, you can create a beautiful centrepiece on a table seating 8 people.

     

    Fairy lights are the perfect addition to a garden party

     

    Step 3: Start with some cocktails

    Everyone loves being greeted with a little fruity number! Get everyone talking with your amazing cocktail-making skills. For some fruity cocktail inspo, try a vodka martini with blueberry juice or a sparkling apple sangria.

    Pro Tip: If you’re making a fruity cocktail, chop your fruit beforehand and keep chilled in an outdoor fridge, so you can focus on enjoying your dinner party and not chopping fruit!

     

    Fruity cocktails are great for a summer garden party

     

    Step 4: Get everyone involved in the cooking

    We don’t mean slave labour here. Getting everyone involved in the cooking process encourages lots of conversation and laughter – as long as you have no Gordon Ramseys among you!

    Pro Tip: Cooking in an outdoor kitchen means you’ll never miss a conversation and helps the evening to flow nicely.

     

    BBQ summer garden party

     

    Step 5: Keep the drinks flowing

    There’s no better complement to a perfect dinner party than chilled drinks all night.

    Pro Tip: Not enough space in the outdoor fridge? Keep all of your chilled drinks to hand with a portable drinks cooler!

     

    No garden party is complete without a steady flow of drinks

     

    Step 6: Keep everyone warm

    Make sure it’s not the weather that brings your dinner party to a close! Stock up on blankets and extra jackets for everyone to wrap up with when the sun goes down.

    Pro Tip: Infrared heaters effortlessly keep your guests warm and comfortable throughout the night.

     

    Blankets will keep everyone warm throughout a garden party

     

    What if I told you that you could enjoy the most social atmosphere, with the freshest food, and the best company, out in your garden whatever the weather? It’s true!

     

    Gazebos can help you enjoy garden parties all year round

     

    Just because Summer is only 3 Months of the year doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy your garden for all 12! And when I say enjoying, I mean it – not just using your washing line! If you love the outdoors and wish you could have garden parties all year round (without freezing your guests to death!), the Supreme Gazebo is for you!

     

    The supreme gazebo is great for enjoying your garden all year round

     

    Spend more time enjoying your garden! You can bring everything outside with a fully stocked kitchen and entertainment area. Go further than just charred sausages on a disposable BBQ and cook food that your family really enjoy.

     

    The Supreme Gazebo comes with a fully stocked outdoor kitchen

     

    Big family? No problem! 8 dining table chairs, large table, and 4 bar stools are all included as standard, making your garden the life and soul of the party.

     

    The Supreme gazebo has generous seating for up to 12 people

     

    Love chewing the fat into the wee hours? Infrared heaters and lighting means that you can leave the blankets and torches where they are and focus on reconnecting and conversation.

     

    State of the art infrared heaters keep everyone warm all evening

     

    Can’t guarantee the British weather? UV-resistant side panels can protect you from blistering sun, driving rain and everything in between.

     

    UV-resistant canvas side panels keep you protected from the elements

     

    If you love entertaining guests and want to make the most of your garden, the Supreme Gazebo is unmissable. Coming fully stocked with everything you need to host the ultimate garden parties and social gatherings, it really is your one stop shop to the perfect garden space!

    New hot tub features for 2019

     

    The Coast Cubby

    The Coast Cubby is a small pump built into to the hot tub cabinet which allows you to empty your hot tub quickly, easily and whenever you want, with easy access via a small door. Usually, emptying hot tubs requires a portable pump and a long, long hose to reach to your drain. The Coast Cubby has both the pump and the hose included – how cool is that?

     

    That’s not even the best part of the Coast Cubby!

     

    The pump and pipe are hidden underneath a removable floor. The small compartment has air grills inside which allows the heat created by hot tub motors to enter and circulate. This circulating hot air within the Coast Cubby creates the perfect environment to store up to 4 towels. Your towels are always warm and ready to use when you get out of the hot tub. Who doesn’t like warm fluffy towels?!

     

    Can’t bear to be more than 6 feet away from your phone? No problem! The Coast Cubby is watertight, so your electronics can be safely stored until you’re not soaking wet.

     

    Coast Spas Hot Tub Cubby


    The Atlas Swim Spa Jet

    Our patented propulsion system recreates the feeling as though you’re swimming in open water for a truly authentic experience.

    This exclusive technology creates a seemingly endless current while allowing swimmers to control the water resistance according to their ability - without the turbulence and frothy waves that other swim spas create. This can be achieved regardless of whether the pumps are set to minimum or maximum power! Our exclusive touchpad control system can save up to 10 different resistance settings, so the exact preferred swimming experience can be repeated every time you use your swim spa.

  6. 6 Top Considerations for Buying a Log Cabin

    Have you ever thought about buying a log cabin, shed, or wooden garden outbuilding for your home? They can be a great addition to provide extra space or make more use of your garden! Read on for how to choose the right cabin for you.

    Let’s start with one of the most burning questions – do log cabins increase the value of your home?

    If you’re going to create more living space outdoors and do this with thought and style that complements your home – absolutely!

    Can log cabins increase the value of my home?

    Where should I put it?

    There’s a lot to think about within this question alone, so we’ve broken it down below:

    • You’ll need to get around the outside to clean and treat the sides.
    • There’s no point paying for windows if there is no view or you can’t open them.
    • It would be thoughtful not to place the cabin too close to your neighbour’s property so that rain water pours off the roof onto their patio and into their garden. No one wants to become an episode of Nightmare Neighbours.
    • Try to place the cabin in a position that doesn’t block any natural light into yours or your neighbour’s home
    • Situate your cabin to better use your garden. If you have enough space, place it in an area that you don’t use as much, rather than taking up space where you play with the kids, tend to a vegetable patch or sit and look out at the views. Think of a cabin as an extension of your living space!

    Where should i put a log cabin in my garden?

    Do you need planning permission?

    Generally, no – but there are exceptions! It is always best to check with your local council. As long as your cabin:

    • Is no higher than 2.5 metres.
    • Is at least 1 metre away from your boundary.
    • Doesn’t take up over 30% of your garden.
    • Is not placed in a conservation area.

     

    Pro Tip: You can build a cabin up to 4 metres high, if it is 2 metres away from your boundary line!

    Do I need planning permission for a log cabin?

    Should you pressure treat your log cabin?

    Pressure treatment comes at a price, but cabins which come pre-treated are better than those that are not. So, if your budget allows, go ahead and buy a pre-treated cabin. If the floor has a damp-proof membrane between the joists and the floorboards and the floorboards are stained, then the wood will generally last longer, getting more value from your cabin purchase.

     

    It is worth considering that eventually the cabin will fade, weather and discolour over time. The only way to retain the cabin’s natural beauty and longevity, regardless of any pre-treatment, is to coat and treat the wood. There are so many wood stains and paints in gorgeous colours – ranging from a natural wood finish to a bright, shocking pink! Any of these applied correctly are more effective than any other type of treatment.

    Should I pressure treat my cabin?

    Are they suitable for use all year-round?

    (should you insulate them?) Chosen and built purposefully, any log cabin can be used all year round. Naturally, if you want to use your log cabin as a comfortable area in the darkest depths of a UK Winter, it’s probably a good idea to get the cabin insulated.

     

    Insulating a cabin costs approximately around 15% of the actual cabin purchase price. If there is insulation material fixed to the underside of the roof boards and then disguised by ceiling panelling, there are 2 major benefits:

    • It keeps the cabin warmer in the winter (the cold cannot penetrate the cabin so easily and any internal heating can’t escape).
    • It keeps the cabin significantly cooler in the summer by restricting the heat from the sun penetrating through the roof.

    In short, if you want to use your cabin all year round, it’s a good idea to consider insulation to keep the space as comfortable as possible, regardless of the weather.

    Can I use my log cabin all year round?

    What will the cabin be used for?

    This consideration is very important, but as you’re thinking about buying a log cabin, you probably already have an idea of what you want to use it for! But that isn’t the end of it…

     

    Are you buying a cabin for a children’s playhouse? That’s awesome, some of my happiest childhood memories were from playing in my playhouse. What happens when they grow up and no longer use it? To avoid the playhouse being neglected (or in our case, becoming a second house for our cat – seriously, he had a bed in there and everything), have you considered buying a larger cabin that can be repurposed once the kids no longer use it?

    What can I use my log cabin for?

    Pro Tip: Log Cabins are so versatile, they literally are a low-cost extension on your home! We’ve included some ideas below for what you can use a log cabin for:

    • A home office
    • A covered garden seating area
    • A party bar area
    • A changing room for your sauna or hot tub
    • A private covered retreat for your sauna or hot tub
    • A gymnasium
    • A hobby and craft room
    • A children’s play area
    • Simply storage
    • A garage
    • A Pinterest-worthy garden design project
    • Just because you can – if you have the space, do you really need to justify it?!

     

    We’ve scratched the surface of what to consider when investing in a log cabin, but it should definitely be enough to make a great start on your journey to a perfect log cabin for your home.

  7. Should You Buy an Ex-Display Hot Tub?

    If you love a hot tub manufacturer but can’t afford their full retail price, or you’re an eagle-eyed deal hunter, ex-display hot tub models can be a great solution. Today we’re talking about whether they’re really the deal they seem to be on paper.

    Why you should buy an ex-display model

    •  Don’t confuse pre-owned or used with ex-display. If you’re buying an ex display that has never been filled, you can be sure that no one has ever used it. You should only expect some minor wear and tear from being in a showroom. The payoff? You’re still saving up to thousands of pounds for an almost as-new model!
    • Even if your ex-display hot tub has been filled and used as a wet test model, you can be sure that it is in the best place to be looked after and maintained properly. In order to comply with BISHTA regulations, all our filled showroom hot tubs must be chemical tested daily, so you’ll know that your hot tub has always had the right amount of chemicals in, prolonging its life.

    What should you consider when buying an ex-display hot tub?

    • Be careful with the warranty available and remember that if an offer appears too good to be true, it likely is!
    • All credible manufacturers begin their warranty 6 months from when their hot tub was made. Some hot tubs may have been in showrooms on display or in warehouses for many months, so check when the hot tub was manufactured and what the exact warranties are. The date of manufacture is usually found on a plate or sticker within or on the cabinet of the hot tub itself. It’s also worth finding out whether the warranty is with the retailer or the manufacturer?
    • Who will fix the hot tub when it breaks? Does the designated technician have the skills, the parts and even the commitment to fix your hot tub? This is important to find out before purchase, so you’re protected if anything does happen.

    • If a hot tub is being sold cheaply it’s either:
      • An end of the line, so make sure you can still get the parts from either the retailer or the manufacturer.
      • Ex-display, so make sure it has been thoroughly cleaned with a sanitiser and a bio film elimination chemical – you don’t want to be getting into a stranger’s bath water!
      • An older stock model – check all the warranties for the shell, cabinet, frame, disposables (such as headrests & jets), plumbing lines and electronics.
      • The company is going out of business. There isn’t a problem with picking up a good deal, if you understand that any warranties offered by the company going out of business will likely be void. If this is the case, make sure there is another company selling the brand nearby should you need any repairs.
    • Ask for a new filter. You don’t want a smelly, old paper cartridge that’s been sat in stagnant water for many months!

    Hot Tubs Stored at our UK Warehouse

    There are many common-sense factors to consider, but in summary; buy from a manufacturer and a retailer you can trust. You will probably use your hot tub for many years to come - it’s like buying a second-hand boiler for your home and you’re really buying into a service relationship, so choose your supplier carefully.

     

    Reputable companies that offer ex-display and pre-owned models should be able to help you every step of the way, but it’s a great idea to prepare yourself so you know what to look for, what to avoid and how to get the best deal without paying for it down the line.
