The world of camping has changed dramatically over the last few years.  Canvas tents are now a thing of the past and it is all about the luxury camping or as it's commonly called 'glamping'.

This, for those of you who don't know, is staying in a tent permanently kitted out with Freeview TV and a DVD player, an iPod dock, bath robes and slippers; and all the little extras you'd expect to find in a five star hotel.  Forget the insects and leaky tents - these camping alternatives offer extravagance and chic comfort.

Hot tubs are increasing in popularity and recently holiday cabins, cottages and barns have started offering then as a stylish substitute for high maintenance campers.

After an exhausting day hiking around the coutryside, the ideal thing to do would be to have a long soak in the bath but usually it only results in sleeping on a hard, wet ground.  However, many camp sites are now extending their facilities and have hot tubs available.

Hot tubs are the ideal solution to relaxing and socialising and they are perfect to soak away your woes after a busy day making fires and participating in water sports like canoeing and white water rafting.

They come in a range of different designs, colours, jets and lighting; so next time you go camping, why not choose a luxurious accommodation that comes complete with hot tub facilities?  Chillout in a tub after strolling through the woodlands and make it a holiday to remember.  Your camping experience will never be the same again!

Who knows, you may love the experience so much that you decide to purchase a tub for your own home.  Sundance Spas offer everything you need to relax in the warm waters; check out our award winning range today.

 Hot tubs are amongst the top itmes bought by winners of the National Lottery, according to research from organised Camelot.

Hot Tubs are the top purchased item, with 29% of lucky winners investing in the luxurious addition to thier homes.  The leading service was of course a cleaner, with 30% choosing to hang up their dusters in favour of hired help.

Other items in the list include home cinemas (10%), a games room (22%) and a walk-in wardrobe (28%).  Bizarrely the research revealed that while 22% of lotto winners owned dogs, only 4% had cats.

One big-spending winner even splashed out on a wishing well - no pun intended.

Hot tubs however, came out on top and with 16% choosing to spend their winnings on a gym this may have been for the health benefits as well as the luxury and relaxation offered.  Hydrotherapy has been proved to increase muscle recovery and the soothing ambience of the hot tub is a notorious stress-buster.

Hot tubs have also been shown to aid sleep by raising body temperature, which then drops once the lucky dipper gets out - maybe lotto winners have been lying awake wondering what to do with the winnings?

Alternatively the aches and pains from their new gyms may explain the urge to purchase a hot tub, as the massaging action of the jets not only helps with muscle pain but also eases discomfort in stiff joints.

Doctors often suggest hot tub therapy to help with a variety of health problems including diabetes. high blood pressure and chronic fatigue.  Physiotherapists encourage the use of hot tubs to allow light stretching of injured muscles while the jets work their magic on the affected areas.

Whilst not everyone can have a bank balance as healthy as a lottery winner, why not invest in a hot tub and improve the health of your muscles and joints?  If you are interested in receiving further information, contact us today.
