Marquis Epic Ultimate
When naming this model, just one word must have sprung to mind for World respected brand Marquis®...Epic! Delivering a simply superb hydrotherapy experience, no expense has been spared on the Epic, which is now vying for top accolades in spa design. Featuring unique Tri-Zone® therapy controls and loaded with 65 of their patented HK® (standing for HydroKinetic) jets, the quality and depth of the Epic's massage is among the best in the industry. The addition of MicroSilk® technology makes this the whole package for health, wellness and beauty conscious spa buyers. Definitely one for the wet test list if budget permits!
Riptide Pools Urban Lite Uptown
Riptide Pools has followed up on its remarkable success in the swim spa arena with its launch of the Urban Lite spa collection in 2016, which is designed to minimise operating costs, as all models in the range can be operated as plug-and-play 13 amp spas. The Uptown is the best-selling model in the range and is a spacious five-seater with comfortable lounger plus a range of barrier-free seats, all with different rotary or directional jets. A low-energy Gecko® circulation pump ensures quiet constant filtration and the optional hand-held massage jet reaches those muscle groups that can't be targeted by conventional jets. Ticks all the boxes!
The hugely successful QuatroSpa is manufactured here in the UK by Midlands-based company RotoSpa and is made by using a rotational moulding technique using a tough resin, which provides an extremely durable finish accented by attractive synthetic cabinetry. The reclining seat with 15-point ultra-blast jet and a considered functional massage system provides for maximum relaxation. The entry step offers easy access and also doubles as a child seat. It is deceptively spacious and fits through standard doors and gates. At under 13 amps it provides true plug-and-play convenience, just wheel it in, fill it up and plug and play!
JacuzziÂ® Hot Tubs J-335IP
The J-335 IP by leading brand Jacuzzi® is the slightly smaller sibling to the highly acclaimed J-465 IP and J-480 IP and is giving the 400 series models a run for their money. The J-335 IP features a re-modelled ProAir lounge seat design with hamstring to achilles massage and a trio of spacious corner bucket seats, including an FX10 therapy seat, which is designed to massage every major muscle group in the back. A whole host of new features include a redesigned waterfall, backlit headrests and drinks holders, a re-engineered control panel and Bluetooth® audio system. A beautifully styled family spa from an iconic brand.
Artesian Spas Artesian Elite Pelican Bay
The Artesian Spas Elite Pelican Bay packs all the same punch as its smaller sibling the Elite Eagle Crest, just on a much bigger scale! It's a huge family spa that has to be seen to be appreciated! With the launch of the Elite Series, Artesian Spas thoroughly deserve their position in the luxury spa premier league. The Pelican Bay is a stunning eight-seater including a comfortable lounge seat. The scope of the specification and design is also first rate, particularly the unique Direct Flow system, which puts each bather in control of their own massage experience. If you believe that 'size matters', the Pelican Bay certainly doesn't sacrifice performance for the sake of size!
Aquavia Spa Aqualife 7
Spanish powerhouse Aquavia Spa is now sizing up the transatlantic competition with its brand new Aqualife range, to cater for the sub-£10k price spectrum. The spacious Aqualife 7 is the pick of the bunch and offers a beautifully moulded shell with lounge seat and four facing seats which ingeniously doubles up the calf jets to become foot jets in the opposing seats! The chic cabinetry is available in three unique finishes including graphite, thunder and walnut, and is both modern and stylish. If it is a modern designer look that you're after, the Aqualife 7 is a must-see!
