How do I use my hot tub?

Hot tub guidelines to enjoy your forest experience safely. 

  • Shower before use to remove gels/creams/perfume which may affect the hot tubs clarity and water balance.
  • Shower after use to wash off any chemicals which might irritate your skin if left on.
  • Proper footwear should be worn on the deck to prevent unwanted algae and bits and pieces from the forest getting into the tub.
  • Please do not sit or stand on the hot tub cover as they’re not strong enough to hold the weight.
  • Try not to use the hot tub alone.
  • Supervise children at all times. No children under 4.
  • Children under 4 can’t regulate their body temperatures the same way older children and adults can.
  • No jewellery, it will tarnish if worn in the hot tub.
  • No food, no glass, no pets and no bubble bath allied. These may result in the hot tub having to be drained.
  • Use the plastic drinkware provided, using glass in the hot tub could cause injury.

Our team will inspect your hot tub every day, please contact us if you have any questions.

  • A maximum of 15 minutes per session (10 to 20 minutes in between each). Overuse will affect chemical balance and overall enjoyment.
  • Do not submerge your head.
  • Avoid using hot tub when intoxicated or when using medication.
  • Please seek medical advice before using the hot tub if you are pregnant or have a chronic condition.
  • Get out of the hot tub if you start feeling unwell.
  • Do not fully close the jets. This would restrict water circulation and deteriorate the quality of the water.
  • Replace the cover after use to keep hot tub at the correct temperature and keep out unwanted algae and leaves.
  • Do not disconnect the power supply.
  • Do not remove any parts of the hot tub, and please make us aware if any parts are missing.
  • Do not use the hot tub during a storm.
