Planning a Valentine’s Day to remember can be simple. Whether you’re dating, are newlyweds, or have been married for years, Valentine’s Day is always a special occasion for a couple. Whether you’re looking to reconnect with your partner or deepen the bond you already have, American Spas has a few suggestions on how to turn your hot tub, backyard and patio into a romantic paradise.
Your hot tub can spark romance, add intimacy, and can make your evening a bit more memorable. Set the mood with rose pedals, scented candles, light music, and ambient lighting. And, while hot tubs are often used for health benefits, on Valentine’s Day it’s important to set the right temperature for relaxation, rejuvenation, and the night’s activities outside of your American Spas hot tub.
Setting the temperature between 97 degrees and 100 degrees happens to be the most popular for unlocking the full relaxation and beneficial properties of the spa. If you plan to sit in the tub longer than 20 minutes, we recommend setting the temperature between 80 degrees and 85 degrees. Activating the massage jets can be fun but conversation is more important. Choose bench seating next to your partner and stay away from the lounger. The goal is to capture their attention and enjoy each others company. Instead massage your partner with your hands and whisper into their ears.
Make sure to set a robe, slippers and a table nearby your spa so that you don’t have to run into the house for any unnecessary interruptions. Decorative art on the walls, sculptures, and plants nearby also add to the environment and spark conversation. Spa steps are important so it’s easy to get in and out of the hot tub without slipping. But, make sure to add a nice comfortable throw rug or bath mat on the floor so you prevent making contact with cold and slippery floors.
Following these hot tub tips on Valentine’s Day is easy and is the perfect setting for a private escape that is both memorable and romantic. The rest is up to you.
