Hot tubs/jacuzzis are the ultimate in relaxation and immersing yourself in warm water can be very rejuvenating. If you’ve booked to stay in one of our holiday homes with a hot tub or jacuzzi make sure you read this guide to maximising your experience!
Benefits of a Hot Tub
There are a few different types of hot tubs. Scandinavian-style wooden tubs often don’t have bubbles and are instead used to soak and relax in, whereas a jacuzzi has jets that create a ‘bubble effect’.
As well as being incredibly relaxing, hot tubs and jacuzzis are often used for Hydrotherapy; a type of water therapy used to treat different conditions. The benefits of this include:
- Help to lower blood pressure
- Relieve stress
- Help you sleep better
- Relax muscles to reduce pain
What to drink
The obvious choice here is Champagne or Prosecco! There’s nothing more indulgent than sliding into your own private hot tub with a glass of bubbles in one hand.
For extra decadence, try elevating your drink by adding some amaretto or cherry liquor. We’d also advise keeping a bottle of water nearby to keep you hydrated!
Create a calm mood by lighting some candles or burning some essential oils. Scent can be a powerful relaxation tool, with lavender being one of the most versatile and popular.
Make sure your towel or robe is in reaching distance – this is especially important if you’re outdoors and want to avoid a freezing cold dash across the terrace!
If you’re looking for some deep relaxation, Salcombe Finest can arrange to have a trained massage therapist come and give you a post-soak massage.
What you listen to is completely up to you – although we would always recommend listening to classical music as you soak in your hot tub enjoying views over the estuary.
Many of our properties have speakers that you can connect to your smartphone – so make sure you create some playlists before you set off on holiday.

Very private with no-one overlooking you. Views down the beautiful Bowcombe Creek and over the Salcombe-Kingsbridge estuary.
Wooden (cedar) hot tub (not a jacuzzi so no bubbles) with epic views over the Salcombe estuary.
Normal style jacuzzi with bubbles sunk into the wooden terrace. Look out over Salcombe town and watch the sky change colour with the setting sun.
Slightly saline jacuzzi which means fewer chemicals so nicer on the skin. Watch epic sunrises in the tub or chill out in the afternoon/evening. A beautiful distant view over Salcombe.
