Inflatable hot tubs have become very popular and in high demand over the years. Why? Because it has proven to be budget-friendly, extremely easy to pack up, and perfect for soaking and relaxing in the backyard on a lazy day. Whatever the reason might be, it’s definitely worth getting one.

But, a lot of people don’t know if this type of hot tubs comes with seats or not. So, do inflatable hot tubs have seats?

No, inflatable hot tubs do not have seats, they do not come with seats. However, the absence of seats does not make them rigid and uncomfortable. On the contrary, it’s the opposite.  They have been padded and designed in a way that makes it comfortable to sit in it all day and relax.

Nevertheless, you can always get a separate hot tub seat if you feel it’s more comfortable for you and the good news is that you can always move the seats anywhere you like in the hot tub since it isn’t fixed.

Are Separate Hot Tub Seats Worth It?

Yes, hot tub seats are worth it, clearly, because it provides more comfort, it provides a variety of seating positions, and most importantly, it assists in improving one’s posture. You should definitely get one.

As stated earlier, inflatable hot tubs do not come with seats but separate seats can be bought. However, note that there are several cheap hot tub seats out there on the internet that causes more harm than good so you have to be aware when getting yourself one.

What’s So Good About Hot Tub Seats?

There you have it. The pros!  What do you think? Are they worth it?

You can get your separate spa seats at online stores or some walk-in stores but whatever you do, ensure that you are getting the perfect seats by making sure that the model numbers fit.

However, there are some seats that can fit with most brands and there are also particular branded hot tub seats that can fit with all types of hot tubs for that particular brand. Be careful when buying.

Hot tub seats are very affordable. The price ranges but, you can get an average spa seat for as low as $30, an expensive one for as low as $80, and even cheaper ones for $10 and less. Try not to get the extra cheaper ones because they can end up becoming a great nuisance.

What’s Bad About Hot Tub Seats?

The major con of having hot tub seats is space. It takes up space and reduces the number of people that can be in the tub at a time. However, while this can be a major concern. It’s not to be forgotten that the seats are removable and hence can be removed when needed.

This will be a huge challenge if you have a large family or have friends that show up at your house to relax and get comfortable.

For example, with hot tub seats, you can sit with 3 people but without a seat, you can sit out with a higher number.
