Our Story

Cedar wood hot tubs.

2009 – 2012


(Fire Hot Tubs)




Our first venture into cedar hot tubs was importing flat-packed cedar tubs from China.

These were wood-fired and offered as a kit-set only.

They had their obvious quality problems and were very basic.

2012 – 2017


(Cedar Wood Tubs)




After a few years of selling the kit-set Chinese tubs, we decided to make the tubs in New Zealand.

While the quality of our New Zealand made tubs were an improvement over the Chinese tubs, there were still issues in building the tub wall/floor out of cedar pieces which still mean’t possible leaky issues, lack of insulation and so high running costs, sitting in brown coloured water etc….

Firstly, leaky issues as the tub wall pieces needed to have a ‘breaking in’ period.

They needed to be filled with water and would leak like a sieve initially before all the gaps between each cedar wall piece would swell up and form a water tight seal.

Lack of insulation meant high running costs.

Also, because of the cedar tannins leeching into the water, it meant sitting in brown water for many months.

(Paradise Hot Tubs)




After a few years of manufacturing traditional cedar tubs, we decided that there had to be a better way to make tubs that were more ‘user friendly’ with better features and benefits than any other cedar hot tub on the market.

We wanted to retain the beautiful cedar look but utilize the benefits of a leak free, insulated, hygienic and easy to clean molded black shell/liner.

And so after much design work and testing, our Paradise Hot Tub was created and it has proved to be a very popular and successful tub design!

Our ‘new generation cedar hot tubs’ are a modernized version of the traditional full cedar tubs that were first designed and sold way back in the 1970’s.

We believe that our tubs are the best on the market in terms of looks, comfort, ease of use, efficiency etc…

Our very positive customer feedback and ever growing new sales from word of mouth referrals are a testament to this.

  • Testimonials

    “We are very happy with our hot tub that we chose, after lots of research, because it combines effective insulation with the good looks of a cedar tub. The woodwork, both inside and out, is of extremely high quality and has a lovely rich colour. The 2-4 seater model is surprisingly roomy while not dominating our small patio area. Also thanks for good communcation and service.”

  • Testimonials

    “The pool is great at holding temperature – we turned it off after use about 9pm to see what it would be the next morning, and it had only dropped 1 degree! Our older spa would have been too luke warm to get in with the same test. So very impressed, also with the temp it gets to, and seems to maintain a lot better than our older one”

    Sue & Paul (Auckland)

     

  • Testimonials

    “….we are very happy with it, it’s a great asset to our garden and looks really beautiful with the wood – our family have also commented on it saying it’s a really amazing looking spa.”

  • Testimonials

    “We can testify that after nearly 3 years of owning a Paradise Hot Tub, our family have had at least twice a day pleasure (6 months per year) of relaxing soothing and peaceful immersion in literally, Paradise.

    So easy and simple to take care of and looks great amongst our garden and pool.

    We did our research to find a good quality hot tub with simplicity.

    Extremely happy with Paradise Hot Tubs.

    Thanks so much Mike”
