Soaking in a hot tub isn’t only enjoyable, it also comes with quite a few health benefits. This includes stress relief, muscle relaxation, and improved sleep.

Besides the health benefits, though, you can make your hot tub winter experience even better with a few unique products. A hot tub cover can keep the water clean, and a heated mat can make hopping out of the tub that much easier.

A hot tub outdoors could also do with a hot tub winter enclosure to prevent the weather from ruining your time in the water. If you’re interested in learning more about hot tub accessory options to improve your experience, consider reading ahead.

Counting Down the Must Haves for this Winter Season

Adding and installing hot tub winter accessories can make all the difference. Before jumping into the list, it’s a good idea to put together a hot tub accessory budget, as many options can vary greatly in price.

It’s also worth considering LED hot tub lights and handrails for hot tubs, even though they’re not included in the following list. It’s also a good idea, in general, to follow some safety guidelines for hot tubs at all times.

Hot Tub Cover

Hot tub covers are one of the most important accessories you can consider. They offer a variety of benefits, including weather protection, improved cleanliness, and safety. One benefit that stands out is energy efficiency. A well-insulated cover helps keep heat in, meaning you’ll spend less for re-heating the water over time.

Cozy Winter Hats

If you have a hot tub outdoors, you might want to look into grabbing a cozy winter hat. Not only are they comfortable, they also offer more protection while you’re enjoying your outdoor hot tub. They’re also convenient, can be really stylish, and can prevent hypothermia from exposure to cold weather.

Plush Robe

A plush robe provides an extra layer before and after using your hot tub, keeping you comfortable. While any robe is great, a plush robe has an extra touch of luxury. Also, they’re easy to slip on and off, and they can help you get dry fast after a dip in a hot tub.

Towel Warmer

Using a towel warmer before jumping into a hot tub is a complete game-changer. It comes with obvious benefits, like a warmed towel right after hopping out of the tub, which is comfortable and helps you get dry much faster. It also helps to reduce bacteria growth, making your towels more hygienic.

Heated Mat

Another example of a heated hot tub accessory that’s a must-have is the heated mat.

Hopping out of the tub and standing on cold ground is a horrible transition. A heated mat prevents this and also helps to prevent slips and falls. They’re easy to install and maintain, making them an excellent choice for any hot tub owner.

Spa Caddy

A spa caddy is more than just a hot tub accessory, as many consider it almost a necessity. It helps keep hot tub essentials organized and within reach, meaning you don’t have to hop out of the hot tub every time you need something. This includes items like books, your phone, snacks, and more.

Using a spa caddy also keeps many objects off of the floor. This keeps them from getting wet, and also removes them as hazards that might otherwise cause slips and falls.

Best of all, a spa caddy can add to the overall aesthetic of a hot tub winter enclosure, adding a few style points in the process.

Outdoor Slippers

Outdoor slippers are a comfortable option for heading to and from the hot tub. They’re easy to slip on and off, and can help prevent slips and falls with a non-slip sole. You also don’t have to worry about ruining your favorite pair, as they’re usually weather-resistant and waterproof.

Using outdoor slippers also keeps your feet warm, and you from getting sick. They also prevent dirt or other objects on the ground from sticking to your feet, which can lead to a dirty hot tub if you get in afterwards.

If you have to pick between slippers and a heated mat, you might be better off sticking with the slippers.

Outdoor Speaker

Adding an outdoor speaker to your list of hot tub accessories is a fantastic choice.

It’s a great way to provide entertainment to enhance your hot tub experience. You’re not limited to just playing music, either. You can throw on a podcast or audiobook while you soak to take your relaxation to the next level.

Outdoor speakers are also very convenient, as you don’t have to hassle with cables and connections. You can also manage your playlist remotely, meaning you can place the speaker wherever you’d like. It’s generally a good idea to find a waterproof speaker if you want to place it close to the hot tub while soaking.

If you’re planning on hosting a hot tub party, an outdoor speaker can make you stand out as an excellent host.


If you want to enhance your hot tub winter experience, you’ll want to grab at least a few of the items on this list.

If you don’t have a hot tub winter enclosure, the outdoor slippers and plush robes are must-haves and make your transition to and from the hot tub outdoors much more comfortable.

Whether indoors or outdoors, a hot tub cover is also essential. It insulates the tub and can help you save on energy costs. If your hot tub accessory budget is limited, you might want to prioritize this one.

Finally, to add some flair and organization to your hot tub, consider grabbing a spa caddy. It’s the perfect spot to place your speaker, slippers, phone, and snacks while you soak in your tub.
