Although we’ve touched on spa enclosures in a couple of previous articles, we’ve not really focused on them much – until now, that is.

So, today, we bring your four different spa shelters – three of them are more for summer-time use, as they’re of an open design, while one is an all-round enclosure, suitable for use at any time of year.

Let’s begin, then, with the Naramata Spa Shelter, which is featured here.

This spa enclosure (which is more like a gazebo for your hot tub) is made of red cedar, which not only looks great, but is ideal for this type of structure, as it weathers really well.

It measures 9 x 9 ft, so it will accommodate a reasonable-sized hot tub without any problem, and it’s just under ten feet high.

The roof also features a viewing skylight, so if you’re having a soak late in the day, you can do a bit of star-gazing while you lie back and relax in your tub.

Now, this does come in kit form, but everything you need (e.g. screws, nails) is included, with the exception of the post mounts, as well as, of course, a detailed assembly manual.

Getaway Spa ShelterVery similar to the Naramata Spa Shelter is the Getaway Spa Shelter, shown to the right.

The only real difference is that the Getaway model has a matching slatted trim, just below the roof line, whereas the Naramata has lacquered wrought iron trim instead.

Bamboo Spa ShelterThe final open-style spa enclosure that we have for you is this Bamboo Spa Shelter.

This too is 9 x 9 ft, and although it is similar in style to the two previous shelters, this one has a more rustic (or maybe Hawaiian) look to it.

The roof is made of cogon, which is a species of grass that originates in Asia (where it’s mainly used for thatching the roofs of traditional homes in Papua New Guinea), although it has become naturalised in many other countries now.

It comes with steps to help you get in and out of your spa, and there’s a side counter so you can sit and relax, either while you’re waiting to get into your hot tub, or maybe just to talk with friends who are already in there.

As usual, this spa enclosure does require assembly, and they reckon it will take three people about five hours to build it.

Panorama Spa ShelterThe final spa enclosure we have for you today is the Panorama Spa Shelter.

This one is definitely an all-year-round model, as it helps keep both bugs and the wind at bay with its sliding Plexiglas windows and screened sliding front door.

As with the first two models, shown above, it is made of red cedar, so you know it will continue looking good for years to come, and it also has a viewing skylight built into the roof.

This one is also slightly bigger than the other three, at 10 x 10 ft, and it also measures 10 ft in height too.

So, whether you fancy a spa enclosure that’s airy and open, or an enclosed one you can use all year round, we know that one of the above will be just what you need.

And in case you were wondering, although we like either of the first two enclosures (i.e. the Naramata or the Getaway), we prefer the Panorama as it’s more practical, not only because it means you can use your hot tub whenever you like, but also because it keeps those pesky insects at bay.

    Part of the enjoyment of a hot tub for my wife and I is looking up at the night sky. An enclosure certainly has its merits but if I had one, I would want the roof to be like a skylight.

      We understand what you mean, but the good news is that the Naramata, Getaway and Panorama Spa Shelters come with a viewing skylight built into the roof anyway.

  2. These look like a great idea for all year use of your hot tub.

  3. Eva Palmer says:

    Definetly one of my favorite ones! I think this would be the one that I would most use!

    Amazing that is all I have to say about this spa enclosure. I feel so bad when I see hot tubs that looked tired and worn out because they are in the elements so long. A covered spa is the perfect solution, great idea.

  5. I’m with Dennis on this one. At my previous house I had a hot tub/spa outside and enjoyed watching the sky while relaxing. So, I too would want one with a skylight type roof.

  6. Hi Rae and Mark,

    Protecting your spa with an enclosure either open or more enclosed sounds like such a good idea. I like the privacy available with the fully enclosed option. Plus they look really great!

  7. A roof with a skylight would be a great structure for my neck of the woods.

    This looks like a summer project I can look forward to. The design is simple yet very elegant and looks great. I especially like the design with the bar on the outside, that could be great for parties.

  9. Susan Charles says:

    I am real fan of the enclosed spa enclosure with outside windows, it adds a little more privacy. I can imagine my husband and I spending a lot more time in the hot tub if we had one of these. ;)
