Sharing a hot tub is a great way to relax and unwind at the end of a day, or at the end of a long and tiring week.

But slipping and sliding all over the place? Not so relaxing!

So the idea is rest and relaxation, so you’re not going to want to stand around, swim or doggy paddle.

The good news is that the large majority of the inflatable hot tubs that are out on the market at the moment are sufficiently shallow enough that if an adult of medium height, or even a short adult, were to sit on the floor of the hot tub, then their head, neck and shoulders should always be above the water even if the hot tub was full to the brim.

And for that reason, most inflatable hot tubs don’t tend to feature seats already built in as standard.

But worry not – there are ways around this and we’ll tell you all about them.

You can either: 

  • Buy a hot tub bundle, which includes items such as non slip seats (and head rests if you like)

  • Buy an inflatable pool with seats (almost the same thing)

  • Buy non slip seats for a hot tub you already own

And you don’t have to go hunting through pages and pages of Google search items to find them, we’ve got them right here for you…

Top 4 Best Hot Tub Seats


Intex 28502E PureSpa Removable Contoured Seat Hot Tub

This is a great little inflatable hot tub bundle pack includes two seats.

Which is great for the Summer when the kids want to join Mom and Dad in the hot tub.

It has a specially contoured shape, built for use in a round hot tub like this one.


Intex Swim Center Inflatable Family Lounge Pool

So, first off, this is an inflatable pool rather than an inflatable hot tub

It comes with not just one or seats built into the fabric, but with an entire built in bench. This bench could easily accommodate 3 or 4 adults on it. And it also has a backrest for everyone on the bench, as well as 2 cup holders, one each side of the bench and backrest.

While the adults rest back on the bench and backrests, there’s plenty of room remaining for the kids to play around in the water.

Of course, the drawback to going for an inflatable pool rather than an inflatable hot tub is that you don’t get any hot jet streams passing through.

However, at that price (so affordable), you may well feel that the sacrifice is worth it, and decide to save your cash for other things.


Intex Removable Slip-Resistant Seat For Inflatable Pure Spa Hot Tub (2 Pack)

As we mentioned earlier, Intex’s PureSpa seats are specially designed for use in hot tubs. They are non-slip and have just the right shape if you want to fit them into a rounded hot tub.

You can either set them to give you an extra 3 inches of height, or a bigger 5.8 inches.

They are available either individually, or as a pack of two, and Amazon occasionally has sales on, and you may be able to get a good deal if you’re lucky.

You can also buy them with inflatable headrests.


Kenley Hot Tub Booster Seat

If you’d prefer a seat with a little more cushion to it, then this would be the one to go for. It’s completely submersible, and is weighted down to remain in place, while you’re relaxing in the tub. It doesn’t rise straight up to the top of the spa when you get up off it.

The seat has a removable cover which is perfectly safe to wash in your machine.

It does cost more than the Intex brand seats, but this one is far more lush and luxurious.

At the time this article was written, it was dubbed as Amazon’s Choice for Seat for Hot Tub, an award only given to products that meet quality standards as well as an affordable price point. It may be worth checking the Amazon page to see if you can still get a good deal there.

Wrap Up

So, unfortunately inflatable hot tubs do not usually come with seats, because including seats means decreasing the number of jet streams.

But you can buy removable seats that are designed for use in hot tubs, and you can choose from hard or soft. Or alternatively buy an inflatable pool with seats instead.
