The Advantages of Spa Gazebos

While many people own an outdoor spa, few have considered a spa gazebo. With a spa gazebo, a nice, hot, outdoor jet bath is available anytime, rain or shine, in partial or total privacy. These spa gazebos come in a variety of styles to suit any taste, and with any number of additions – such as spa-side bars and barstools – for total relaxation accommodation.

Most spa gazebos are designed to extend the lip of a spa tub for added lounging mobility. They often include walls or trellises for increased privacy. Other spa gazebos are simply built over and around the spa area. These are perfect for the economically minded bather.

For those planning to use an outdoor spa on a blustery autumn Sunday afternoon, a spa gazebo featuring total wall enclosures is ideal. Screens, tinted windows, French shutters, and other features can be used to allow for a 360 view of your surroundings. Some spa gazebo screens are regular, see-through screens, but there are screens available that are tinted black and block out 92% of the sun’s damaging ultraviolet rays.

Tinted windows are coated with a brown acrylic compound, allowing you to see out with no one else seeing in. Consider a spa gazebo that features tinted windows if you live in an area where neighbors or strangers are nearby.

For maximum visibility of nature’s vistas, there are spa gazebos available that feature transparent polymer roofs and/or walls. These are freestanding geodesic domes that cut all wind and precipitation, as well as block 98% of the sun’s UV rays.

While a spa gazebo can run you anywhere from $3000 to $20,000 or more, depending on building materials, sizes and extras, and overall quality, for many it is a worthwhile investment.
