The Holiday Hot Tub Party Guide

A hot tub party is one of the most enjoyable ways for a group of friends or family to enjoy some quality time together over the holiday season. The holiday lights and decorations and bubbly warm water creates the perfect environment to catch up and enjoy a few drinks on the side.


Preparing the hot tub before everyone shows up is key. Make sure the water is clean and the temperature is just right – not too hot, but not too cool either. It’s also a good idea to keep an eye on the temperature throughout the party as well, just to be sure the temperature stays at an optimum level.

Make sure the pathway to the hot tub is clean and clear of debris, to make the route to and from the hot tub a safe one. Have towels ready just inside the door in a basket or on a table so when everyone is ready to get out and go inside the towels are warm and right at hand. If you are planning on having drinks available by the hot tub have plastic cups ready to avoid any mishaps with glass in the hot tub.

Create Ambiance

A holiday hot tub is never complete without music, make the playlist with a variety of music to cater to different tastes and keep the volume at a comfortable level.  As for the decorations use your creativity, you could create a winter wonderland for fun or keep it more minimal and neutral as to create more of a spa feel for relaxtion. Whatever you decide between the music and decorations you are sure to create a holiday hot tub party everyone will remember.

Food and Drinks

When planning your holiday hot tub party keep in mind that the warm water will keep the appetite of everyone at lower levels. Make simple food selections by choosing appetizers and light snacks everyone can enjoy inside afterwards. As for drinks, the warm water will make your guests thirsty, but keep alcohol to a minimum while in the hot tub as warm water and alcohol, don’t always make the best combination. Instead maybe offer infused water, or a non-alcoholic spritzer for the hot tub and have some wine and other beverages available inside for when everyone moves into the house.
