A hot tub is a great way to spend a romantic time together and to make it a special night, you need the right ingredients. Luckily we’ve put together the perfect list of ways to make your soak an enchanting night. Whether you’re popping the question or just having a romantic evening in, follow these tips for an intimate night together. Your partner will be impressed and you will enjoy the evening together under the stars.
Set the Mood
Romance will be in the air, but first, you have to set the mood for a romantic hot tub night. First, dim your outdoor lights or shut them off completely. Next, carefully light a few candles or tea lights a safe distance away from any wood. Or better yet, hang up a strand of lights near the hot tub or use a set of floating candles/lights. Now it’s time to kick up the romance in high gear and that calls for fresh rose petals. If you want to surprise your partner with a night in the hot tub, break off a few petals and make a trail leading to the waiting tub. For extra ambiance, toss a few on the water. Just make sure you don’t have the jets on or the petals can get sucked into your filters! After you’ve prepared the tub, don’t forget the music! Use a wireless speaker or an outdoor music system to play cool jazz or a favorite playlist. Try Spotify’s Jazzy Romance or a Timeless Love Songs playlists. Or prepare a custom list of your lover’s favorite songs.
Dress the Part
No romantic evening is complete without the right attire. Lay out your best swimsuits for a comfortable dip and make sure you have a couple of towels handy. Satin robes are a great romantic choice, and you can even embroider them for a lovely gift. The silky feeling of satin robes’ fabric is a heavenly touch at the end of any soak. Satin robes aren’t just for hot tubs either because they’re ideal for a nightwear cover-up or when worn when getting ready. Surprise your partner with this versatile clothing choice and she’ll remember your romantic night for years to come.
Create an Aromatherapy Experience
If you’ve heard the buzz about essential oils, you may know that they have a variety of uses. But did you know that you can even use them in hot tubs? Oils are relaxing, invigorating, and soothing when used in a hot tub. Drop in your oils sparingly, because just a little will do well in the swirling hot water. You should also make sure you dilute them before use. The best measurement is about 3-4 drops of oil per person in the hot tub, so around 6 drops. Peppermint is a great oil to ease tension and body aches, combine it with a massage to thrill your lover. Lemon is a calming scent, perfect for at the end of a long day. Lavender is both relaxing and romantic touch to any soak. You’ll love the aromatic effect you get with oils.
Wine and Dine Your Lover
What’s a soak in the hot tub without a little wine and dinner? Make a plate of cheese, crackers, grapes, melons, and other bite-sized snacks. Feeling fancy? Stop by your favorite bakery and grab a cannoli, slice of cheesecake, or a brownie. Pour a glass of red or white wine for each of you, and let the bubbling hot water soothe all your aches and pains.
With a little planning and an air of romance, you’ll have all of the ingredients for a sensual night to remember.
