These hot tubs offer enough seating for everyone in the family while boasting ample jet configurations to easily meet your changing needs.
If you’re considering a 6-person hot tub but aren’t sure which one offers the best soaking experience, we’re here to help.
In this article, we’re going to share the five essential features to consider when selecting your hot tub, explore six models from Dimension One Spas®️, and we’re even going to highlight a bonus model that simply can’t be excluded from any list.

5 Features to Look For in a 6-Person Hot Tub
Before we start sharing some specific models with you, you’ll need to know what to look for to decide if a hot tub is a good fit for your needs and lifestyle.
While size is definitely one of the most important factors, below, you’ll find five additional aspects to consider when choosing your new hot tub.
1. Jet Style and Placement
The jet configurations in your chosen hot tub will be significantly influential over your experience each time you step into the water.
Every hot tub has its own jet patterns and often include various style of jets, such as gentle ones that target smaller joints and other ones with moving parts that massage larger muscle groups that may require more pressure.
When considering any hot tub, on or off this list, you’ll want to take note of the jet styles and configurations each one offers.
You’ll want to ensure your hot tub is able to target the muscles you need it to.
If you have neck pain, you’ll want one that includes jets that sit high enough to massage those muscles.
On the other hand, if you stand all day and come home with aching calves and feet, you’ll want to ensure your hot tub has a seat that includes lower body jets.
2. Water Management Systems
Water maintenance is a non-negotiable when it comes to spa ownership, but with the right water management system, it can be a whole lot easier.
This system will influence how much work it takes to maintain your spa.
With the right one, you’ll use fewer chemicals and spend less time maintaining your water.
While every hot tub comes with a water management system, some boast advanced designs, such as the UltraPURE®️ system that works to keep your water cleaner in more natural ways.
While these systems certainly won’t remove the work of maintaining your spa completely, and you’ll still need to keep up with testing and treating your water, they are powerful additions to consider.
3. Seating Style
The style of seats in a hot tub come in two distinct styles, which you’ve likely already been thinking about:
- Upright seating
Many models are designed to include at least one lounger, however, some provide open seating throughout, giving you extra space for the kids to splash around or maximize seating.
One of the biggest determining factors in which seating style you want in your spa generally comes down to whether or not you want to put your feet up and lay back for a relaxing full-body massage.
If you’d rather sit upright but don’t want to miss out on a shoulder-to-toe massage, don’t worry. Loungers are not the only way to enjoy a full-body experience.
There are plenty of spas that include an upright seat with a jet configuration that targets all the major muscle groups.
4. Control Systems
Control systems vary from model to model, with some being more advanced than others.
Every control panel will allow you to adjust your jets and spa’s LEDs while also communicating with you about how your system is functioning.
On the other hand, some models boast advanced systems that provide you with additional control over the features of your spa.
Furthermore, many models from Dimension One Spas®️ include a secondary control system called the Dynamic Massage Sequencer™️ that specifically controls your massage experience in the UltraLounge™️ Therapy Seat.
5. Water Features
If you enjoy the ambient sounds of trickling water while you relax or simply want your spa to leave guests in awe with an unexpected display, water features are worth considering.
Dimension One Spas®️ offers an impressive range of water features, from interchangeable fountains to waterfalls, and even advanced systems like the LiquidFX™️ that incorporates stunning LEDs into the fountains!
