If you’re a holiday homeowner and want to attract more guests as well as increase the value of your property, a wooden hot tub will make the warmest welcome and make your guests long to return all year round.
When on holidays, 8 persons out of 10 will crave for splashing sensations at some point. Water has this unique quality of joining us with nature both in a playful and relaxing mood.
That’s why a wood-burning hot tub is becoming almost a demanded feature in holiday houses around the UK.
The main reasons why holiday homeowners bring hot tubs for their guests
As reported by some owners, a wood-fired hot tub has proven to be a sensible investment for them for these following wins:
- A wooden hot tub resulted in more bookings. More and more people in the UK decide to spend their holiday money locally for added touches of luxury instead of experiencing all the hassle of taking flights to other parts of the world.
- Guests left more positive comments. After leaving their holiday, travelers leave more positive comments after experiencing the advantages of a wood burning hot tub. And holiday home owners love happy guests. They’re more likely to re-book themselves and spread the word of mouth.
- A wood-fired hot tub allowed many owners to increase their earnings. This usually works in two ways – either a holiday cottage owner increases the booking price by 10–20% on average or they have a busier calendar with more people booking the place just because of a wooden hot tub. Google searches for ‘holiday lodge with a hot tub’ and similar keywords have been only increasing over the past decade.
- A wood burning hot tub increased the value of the property. They saw adding a garden spa as a good way to increase the overall value of the property should they ever consider selling it.
The main attraction even in the cold months
While the steaming water in a wood fired hot tub will draw your holiday cottage visitors any time of the year, feeling the soft bites of chill and then immediately vanishing them once you get to the wooden hot tub creates so much comfort and joyful peace.
It’s an effortless way to experience many health benefits, such as soothing the aching joints, improving sleep, and others. If there is a lake, or a pond, or a river around your holiday chalet, offer your guests hot spa joys in the wood burning hot tub when they’re back after a chilly swim.
A simple and cheap way to bring water pleasures for your guests
A wood fired hot tub is an intuitive and a seamless addition to a well-equipped naturalistic holiday cottage and can be used completely off the grid.
Compared to excavating a pond, or fitting a swimming pool, a wooden spa costs but a fraction. The ongoing costs of a wooden hot tub are very low – you’ll only need firewood to get the water hot, and just a bit of electric power if you decide to turn the air massage system on.
Also, you’ll want to take measures to control the risks of infectious diseases such as Legionnaire’s to comply with the applicable regulations and maintain the safety of your guests.
Our best recommendation is to replace water after each group of guests and clean the wood burning hot tub insert carefully.
A Gardenvity wood fired hot tub will need 1,400 litres of water to fill up, which means around £4.50 per fill (based on the average UK rate of £3.19 per cubic meter, including water & wastewater).
That is a bargain compared to all the chemicals you would otherwise use with a swimming pool, for example, and all the risk of your guests getting an infectious disease. These are the main reasons why a wooden hot tub is a perfect choice!
Exceeding your guests’ expectations
With a wood burning hot tub present in a cosy holiday cottage, a few days’ or weeks’ retreat will get more memorable and relaxing to your guests at any weather, any time of the year.
Steaming water of a wood fired hot tub upon the arrival will actually create the impression that you’ve gone the extra mile. Encourage your guests to participate in the authentic ritual of burning the logs when heating water, and feel the emotional reset.
A wooden hot tub is truly an investment that will take little space but give maximum pleasure for your guests – and yourself.
