Best Hot Tubs and Swim Spas of 2023

There was a lot of excitement this year at the annual International Pool and Spa Expo where many hot tub and swim spa manufacturers had their booths decked out with new, long-awaited products and innovations. The show even saw the return of Jacuzzi Hot Tubs, Sundance Spas, Hydropool Hot Tubs, and Dimension One Spas who haven’t displayed at the show for many years even before the pandemic. Pandemic related factors really did a number on the hot tub industry like many others. First of all, it created many supply chain issues causing manufacturing disruptions. Second, the industry saw an unprecedented, sharp increase in demand from stay-at-home consumers wanting health and wellness products. These two things created the perfect storm in 2020 that led to hot tub orders backing up between 1-2 years. Things have finally settled down and manufacturing lead times and production schedules have normalized which has led to many hot tub manufacturers wiping existing order backlogs away and allowing dealers to start over with normal 4-8 weeks lead times for hot tub orders. For the last two years buyers (end users) could not order custom hot tubs spec’d with their desired features, colors, and upgrades and had to take whatever models and configurations dealers/retailers had in stock but now they can. Although most large hot tub dealers are sitting on a pile of inventory (that they need to liquidate), you should be able to custom order spas again and have more choices with new releases in 2023.

In this article we will discuss new hot tub models for 2023 and some of the best-selling hot tub models from each hot tub and swim spa manufacturer. You can also reference our list of the Top 10 Hot Tub Manufacturers for some of the largest, most distinguished brands.
