Relaxing in a hot tub
A Hot Tub is a great way to Relax with friends


Guarantee your guests won’t get sick by:

  • Keeping the hot tub clean. Ensure your hot tub chemicals are at the right levels.
  • Changing the filter. If it hasn’t been recently changed, changing the filter is another way enhance sanitation.


There are many great food options for your hot tub party, but consider keeping the fare light so guests don’t feel uncomfortable eating the food in their swimwear.

  • Caribbean theme. Many island dishes are light and perfect for hot tub parties. Jerk chicken skewers, mango salsa, and plantain chips are light, filling, and refreshing.
  • Hors d’oeuvres. Include finger foods so guests can try a variety of foods. Shrimp cocktail, bruschetta, and cheese boards are great.
  • Drinks. If you include alcoholic beverages, a fishbowl punch is a great cocktail for a crowd. Remember to include nonalcoholic beverages for guests who don’t drink. Use plastic cups to prevent broken glass.


The décor will provide the ambiance needed to really turn this into a party.

  • Lighting. Candles and torches provide wonderful ambient light that is soft and flattering.
  • Inflatable pool. An inflatable pool is a great way to keep food and drinks chilled and accessible – and is consistent with the hot tub theme.
  • Other décor. Have fun with other décor ideas like streamers, balloons, and plants!



A hot tub will be the main attraction, but staying in the hot tub for the duration of the party is not realistic. Having other activities can keep the party moving.

  • Spa. Manicures, pedicures, facials, and massages are great spa-themed activities that can be as simple or as elaborate as you choose.
  • Crystal ball. Fortune telling, palm readings, or Ouija boards can create an eerie ambiance.
  • Games. Waterproof cards can bring added fun to the tub while other games outside of the hot tub will keep guests entertained.
