Enjoying the relaxation of a Hot Tub on your UK Holiday

As more people choose to spend their leisure time in the UK and Ireland, there has been a growth in the popularity for installing hot tubs in holiday accommodation, to enhance the visitor experience at these venues.  They are a fabulous way of relaxing and having fun, without the hassle of airport / ferry delays and being away from your favourite food and drink!

A number of holiday venues have been keen to demonstrate that they are responsible site owners when it comes to safely maintaining their hot tubs.  By joining BISHTA, these companies can demonstrate that they have staff that are trained to understand the importance of water hygiene management.  These companies have also agreed to abide by BISHTA’s Code of Ethics, so you can expect them to behave in an ethical manner.

For details of the holiday venues that are currently BISHTA members please see the list below, and for a full list of all BISHTA members, please click here.

BISHTA continues to work with hot-tub-2the holiday homes and parks industry to ensure everyone is working towards the recognised guidelines.  When you visit a holiday lodge or home, it is important that the hot tub equipment meets industry standards and that it is carefully maintained to ensure safe usage.  Key issues often revolve around the water treatment regime provided to ensure the water is clean and safe to bathe in, so make sure you ask the site staff how the hot tubs are maintained.  Records will need to be kept, so if you are in any doubt, ask to see the daily records test sheets.

Do you own a holiday home or are you a holiday park owner?  We have a BISHTA factsheet designed to give owners and managers of holiday parks and homes, looking to purchase hot tubs for their sites, some specific advice on what is needed for the ‘business use’ of domestic spas (and hot tubs). This “business setting” or “business use” is defined as one hot tub being for the exclusive use of one family or group of friends during any given hiring period, click here to view and print this FREE factsheet.

If you are a holiday home company that is considering joining BISHTA, a leaflet is available to download explaining more about the benefits of membership, we look forward to hearing from you!  JOIN NOW!
