If you’re in the market for an inflatable hot tub, you probably have some idea of what you’re in for—luxuriant relaxation, unbeatable value, and a few caveats and compromises.

The truth is, you don’t have a wide range of options right now when shopping online for one of these. Aside from color, shape, or the brand name stamped on the side, their differences are largely superficial; they all have similar drawbacks.

What you should keep in mind is that any inflatable hot tub will require some upkeep, and your satisfaction with the purchase will depend on things like the color and shape of the inflatable tub itself. Don’t worry so much about the brand name. Look for a good price, a design you won’t mind looking at, and know what you’re getting yourself into.

Our managing editor of electronics, Ryan Waniata, owns the Coleman Tahiti, which is comparable to the majority of the inflatable spas you’ll find for sale online.

“It’s rife with little problems, and you’ll definitely have to replace some stuff. The warranty oddly covers some things and not others,” he warns. For example, many of the hot tubs come with patches and teflon tape for repairing holes and tears—expect to use them. And keeping your spa clean of harmful bacteria will be an ongoing project.

“But it is a hot tub for like a tenth the cost of a real one,” he says. “There’s, at the very least, weekly maintenance. But it’s not bad.”

We spent hours shopping around, researching product specs and warranty info, and reading users reviews to narrow down some solid recommendations. These are the best inflatable hot tubs you can get on Amazon right now.

Editor's Note

Wejoy AquaSpa Round Inflatable Hot Tub

At almost 82 inches in diameter, with a 264-gallon capacity, this inflatable spa from WeJoy is one of the bigger options you’ve got. It offers 130 bubble jets, two simultaneous filters, a simple control panel, and heats up to a maximum of 104 degrees Fahrenheit—which seems to be the standard max temp for these things in general. The thousand-liter tub can comfortably hold either two adults and up to four children or three to four adults; it takes about 10 minutes to inflate and 20 minutes to take down—y’know, once you get rid of the 260 gallons of water.

Amazon promises to take free returns for up to one year from the date of purchase, so it’s a pretty low-risk investment, aside from the cost of upkeep. It includes everything you need to get started: the inflatable PVC hot tub, two filter cartridges (you’ll need two at any given time), a zip cover, a valve, two air-valve caps, an inflation hose, a drainage bung, two child safety keys, a filter cover, an inlet-outlet spanner, and a sheet to put on the ground underneath it.

Pros

  • 264-gallon capacity

  • 130 bubble jets

Cons

  • May not include any patches

Intex 28429E PureSpa

A top-selling tub with a high percentage of five-star ratings, this 210-gallon spa is 77 inches wide and should fit up to four people comfortably. It’s got 140 bubble jets, a built-in hard water treatment system, and multi-colored LED lighting.

The manufacturer promises a one-year limited warranty, which may only cover things like the pump. And it includes a cover, two filter cartridges, two headrests, a ground cloth, an inflation hose, a carry bag, a floating chlorine dispenser, and a test strip.

Most reviewers have been thrilled with their purchase, and it’s an easy one to set up, but expect it to use a lot of energy and require the occasional patch job.

Pros

  • Multi-colored LED lighting

  • 210-gallon capacity

  • 140 bubble jets

Cons

  • Uses a lot of electricity

This is a smaller hot tub with a 160-gallon water capacity, so that’s important to be aware of; it may only fit two or three people comfortably. It comes with a one-year warranty for the pump and a 180-day warranty for the liner, and has 110 bubble jets despite its size.

It has a lot of little quality-of-life features: a “Freeze Shield” auto-heating function, lift handles for portability, and Bestway Smart Hub app integration for programming the timer up to 40 days in advance. It also includes a cover, one filter cartridge, a ChemConnect dispenser, and a single repair kit.

Pros

  • 40-day programmable timer

  • Auto-heating function

  • Includes a repair kit

Cons

  • Smaller, 160-gallon tub

Wejoy AquaSpa Square Inflatable Hot Tub

This is another WeJoy model backed by Amazon’s one-year full return policy, offering a 240-gallon capacity and room for up to four people. It seems like an ideal mid-sized option, with 120 jets, a 24-hour timer, and filters made to last for up to 168 hours of use.

It comes with two air valve caps, a zip cover, two repair kits, an inflation hose, a drainage bung, two child safety keys, a filter cover, an inlet-outlet spanner, a ground sheet, a way valve, and your first two filter cartridges. It has a high percentage of five-star ratings, too, so you can buy with confidence knowing that you’ve got a year to decide whether or not you’re happy with it.

Pros

  • Includes two repair kits

  • 240-gallon capacity

  • 120 bubble jets

Cons

  • None that we could find

Bestway Paris Saluspa

This popular Bestway model has a 213-gallon capacity that should fit four to six people comfortably, and 66% of user ratings awarded it five stars. It’s got LED lights with seven different changing colors, a 72-hour power-saving timer, and the customer-service support is reportedly pretty good.

It includes a cover, ChemConnect dispenser, and two filter cartridges; you’ll probably want to place a separate order for teflon tape or patch kits. Routine upkeep aside, consumers seem pretty satisfied with this low-risk investment.

Pros

  • 72-hour power-saving timer

  • Seven different LED colors

  • 213-gallon capacity

Cons

  • May not include any patches
