Every family is unique. Some are small, with just one or two people; others have grown into something larger! But it doesn’t matter whether you are a small, tight-knit unit or a large family bursting with energy. The Sapphire Range of family spas will have every parent, sibling and child fitting into their own seats.
How big your spa should be depends on your specific needs. When talking about spas, there are usually 3 standard classifications, small, medium, and large. You will typically find small spas in compact ranges that seat between 2 and 4 people. Medium size spas seat between 4 and 6 people, and large spas fit 7 and more people. Large and medium size spas are usually considered ‘family size’ models. So if you are looking for a spa that seats 4 or more people, the Sapphire Spas family range is a great place to start. Keep reading for more information on choosing the right size spa for you.
A large family spa will typically hold between 4 and 6 people. They range in size and seating configurations, but as a rule, you will generally find them to be around 2000mm x 2000mm x 900mm. The myObsession spa is a perfect example of this size spa. Seating up to 5 people, this spa weighs 1585kg when full (plus the weight of the occupants) and holds 1050 litres of water!
Here's a look at the interior seating of myObsession
The family range of spas are bigger than the compact range and offer a variety of seating and jet layouts. Most of these spas are over 2m square, allowing for greater personal space for each occupant, but without being so large as to take over your outside space. These spas are designed with groups in mind, big enough for the whole family or to catch up with friends. Most of the family range has been created with enlarged footwells to allow space for multiple users, including undercut footwells to accommodate even the tallest people. Many models include his and hers recliners or captain’s chairs to account for the different heights of individuals and ensure everyone has a position just for them. Their powerful air and water jets ensure a blissful therapeutic experience for all users. So if you want a slice of heaven in your backyard, a spa from the Sapphire Spas family range could be just what you are looking for.
Another example of an incredible 5 person family spa is the myChillout. The myChillout spa is more significant than some other 5 seater spas and measures 2.1m x 2.1m x 0.89m, and holds 1150 litres of water. Weighing 1150kg when full of water, it adds just enough overall size to allow a more relaxed experience with a recliner seat included in the seating configuration.
A growing family may want to consider investing in a spa that can accommodate a larger number of occupants. Sapphire Spas myParadise is a fantastic spa for the ever growing family. With 8 seats, we are sure the entire family will fit for quality time catching up on each others day. The myParadise spa measure 2.6m x 2.3m x 0.895m and weighs over 2 tonnes!
If you are looking for a 12 seater spa, they can be hard to come by. They are usually large enough that if you are looking for a spa this big, you should start investigating the idea of a swim spa. Swim spas are much longer than a traditional spa and accommodate seated relaxation with a jet message and people who love to swim laps. With relaxing spa seating at one end and swim jets at the other, they offer great versatility and can accommodate larger numbers of people. The myLapswim4.5m spa is a perfect example. This swim spa accommodates 12+ people and measures 4.45m x 2.29m x 1.42m, and weighs over 6 tonnes. It is ideal for a family unit that has outgrown conventional spa pools.
How much water you need to fill your spa depends on the model you have purchased. For example, the smallest model offered by Sapphire Spas uses 510 litres of water, and the largest uses an incredible 8250 litres of water. For the exact amount of water needed for your spa model, check the brochure with all of your spas spec included.
If you are a family of 4 or more, then a family sized spa is perfect for you. If you are a family with less than 4 people, then the family size spa is still perfect! With a family size spa, there is always room for your family to grow. Suppose you are happy with your little family unit of just 1 or 2 people. In that case, a family size spa may be the perfect option. It will allow you to relax with your friends in a space that gives true bliss, inspires thoughtful conversation, and melts your troubles away.
