Increase nightly rates with hot tub spas
Do you want to increase your nightly rates? You can easily justify it by adding a luxury hot tub experience. Many guests will not have access to their own hot tubs at home and therefore they will see this is a real treat, which it most definitely is. Holiday home owners can generally increase their nightly rates by between 10-20%. That increase will be extremely valuable over time.
Increase holiday home occupancy rate year round
Many holiday home owners experience a drop in bookings over the winter months, because of the weather, which cannot be helped. If this sounds familiar, a hot tub might be just what you need to attract more customers. Hot tubs are a fantastic option due to their ability to be used all year round. Whether it’s warm outside or it’s the middle of December, the comfort of a bubbling hot tub will provide relaxation. Hot tubs are usually heated to between 36 and 40 degrees, giving you the perfect temperature to relieve those aches and pains.
