10 Best 2 Person Hot Tub Reviews 2020

If you do not want to spend over $4000, don’t worry, you can still enjoy some fancy-frills and that too at a lower cost with the Ariel Platinum.

For example, you can enjoy a warm, cozy bath in the winters with this hot tub as well since it is equipped with a powerful 110V heat pump that takes 2-3 minutes.

One of the main differences is that this tub comes with 22 jets rather than the 28. But that’s not a problem, the massages are just as good.

With 4 flow speeds, you get can control both direction and speed to best suit your needs. Plus, there is a waterfall faucet and handheld shower so you can even wash your hair and other areas if needed.

Keeping the water and the tub bacteria and virus free is the advanced Ozone cleaning system (at this point, there’s hardly any feature more important than that).

It also comes with adjustable LED lights but that’s not where the buck stops.

Along with lighting, you can add to the mood with your favorite music thanks to the in-built speaker and Bluetooth that allows you to connect to any portable speaker or smartphone

Then there is also an FM Radio (date night is about to get a whole lot steamier).

And if you have kids or forgetful family members that forget to turn off the tub after use, don’t worry. Drown the worry of high electricity bills since the tub has a 60 minute Auto Shutdown feature that helps save electricity.

To top it all, you not only get a 2-year limited warranty but it is also a risk-free purchase. That is because it comes with a 30-day return policy (don’t like the hot tub? Get your money back, no question asked).

  • Some installation required
  • No cover provided

#3: Coleman 90454 (Best 2-Person Hot tub for Budget Buyers)

10 Best 2 Person Hot Tub Reviews 2020

What if we told you that you can get your next hot tub in less than $850? Say hello to the Coleman 90454

First and foremost, it is one of the most portable hot tubs you will come across as it is an inflatable hot tub. Although inflation can take some time, it does make it easy to carry around (put in the trunk of the car, it fits in just right).

And moving it around even when inflated (but empty) is pretty easy since it weighs less than 60lbs and comes with handles on both sides.

But does inflatable mean low durability?

Not at all. You get full value for your money as the hot tub’s walls are constructed using ultra-strong TriTech 3 ply material that has passed rigorous stress tests. This also helps keep the temperature constant.

It won’t fly away during strong winds or get filled with debris either as the safety locks clip firmly secure it to the ground.

While durability is important, what’s a hot tub is it doesn’t massage, right?

Thankfully, it checks that box as well. With 114 bubble jets, you can easily soak your sore back, legs, shoulders for quick massage therapy.

And you can adjust the temperature, flow, etc. right from the hot tub with just the press of a few buttons that are easily accessible thanks to the well-placed digital panel. 

The water can be heated up to 104-degrees Fahrenheit which takes about 5-10mins. Oh, and unlike most cheaper inflated hot tubs, this one does a great job of keeping the tub clean and fresh with the special chemical floater.

Lastly, everything needed for maintenance and setup will be provided with the purchase. This includes:

  1. 1 pool liner
  2. 1 pool cover
  3. 1 spa pump
  4. 1 chemical floater
  5. 2 filter cartridges (VI)
  6. 1 air pad protector
  7. 1 repair patch
  8. 1 AirJet system

WHAT WE LIKED

  • Costs less than $1000
  • Weighs around 50lbs
  • Side handles make it easy to move around
  • Excellent durability
  • Safety locks ensure it doesn’t blow away during strong winds
  • Provides a good body massage with 114 jets
  • Control temperature, flow, etc. with digital panel
  • Comes with all required accessories like a filter, etc.

WHAT WE DIDN'T LIKE

  • Inflation with pump takes effort and time
  • No speakers, radio or lights
  • Not suitable for heavier people
  • More a 2-person hot tub than 4

#4: ARIEL Platinum BT-150150

10 Best 2 Person Hot Tub Reviews 2020

Another one of Ariels’ top hot tubs, this one is ideal for anyone looking to buy a mid-range hot tub, and here’s why.

There’s a lot this model carries over from the previous hot tub. For example, this too comes with adjustable LED lights, FM Radio/CD connector, speaker, and microphone.

Furthermore, although it has a lesser number of jets, you won’t be disappointed once you step into it for a hydro massage after a back-breaking day a the gym. Ensuring this is the powerful 18 whirlpool jets.

Once again, there are 4 settings and you easily switch between them using the digital panel. There are also the handheld shower and waterfall faucet.

And yes, even with this hot tub you have the option of getting a refund within 30-days of the purchase in case you aren’t happy. Then there is also the 2-year limited warranty.

Preventing the body from chipping or cracking is its durable build that comes from the Acrylic Reinforced Fiberglass material used in the construction.

So what is different?

Firstly, the hot tub does not sanitize the tub for you unlike with the ARIEL Platinum PW1685959CW1.

Secondly, there’s no Bluetooth which means you cannot play songs via your smartphone or connect an external speaker.

It does not have as many massage modes either and the water takes slightly longer to heat. Though keep in mind, this one weighs just 190lbs compared to the 256lbs of the previous model which makes this one easier to move around and fix.

Lastly, it costs about $800 lesser so if you did not have $2000+ for a hot tub but want features like a good speaker, lights, etc. this is pretty much a steal.

WHAT WE LIKED

  • Lighter than most hot tubs at 190lbs
  • Comes with lights, speakers, mic
  • Adjustable jet flow and direction
  • Acrylic Reinforced Fiberglass material prevents chips and cracks
  • 30-day return policy
  • Comes with Whirpool bath and 7 jets
  • Excellent filters and drains ensure no clogging

WHAT WE DIDN'T LIKE

  • No Bluetooth
  • Water and tub surface isn’t sanitized automatically
  • Takes longer to heat water compared to other Ariel models

#5: SDI Factory Direct 2 Person Hot Tub (Best for heavy users)

10 Best 2 Person Hot Tub Reviews 2020

Is durability is a priority for you? Then the SDI Factory Direct hot tub is just what you have been looking for.

That is because unlike most hot tubs, this bad boy comes with a stainless steel frame that does not break, crack, or rust. So if you weigh over 150lbs or more, this is the hot tub for you.

While the 20 jets powered by 2 pumps give you the perfect massage, you can relax your head and take a timeout with the removable cushioned pillows.

By the way, how many times have you forgotten that you had the water running for the hot tub only to come back and see it overflowing? Not anymore as this one has a Water Overflow Drain pre-installed (after all, water conservation is the need of the hour).

Talking about installation, this one barely needs any installation as most of the tub comes pre-installed. That also includes a decent water heater.

To keep you entertained at all times, there is an excellent sound system that lets you connect any device using Bluetooth. There are also multiple LED lights for Chomothepray.

And ensuring you do not catch an infection due to mold or mildew is the Ozon Generator. All its pumps also meet industry standards.

And that’s not us saying it, their pumps have a CE + TUV Approvals to prove that.

WHAT WE LIKED

  • Best suited for heavy users
  • Stainless steel frame provides unmatched durability
  • Water Overflow Drain prevents water from overflowing
  • Pumps come with a CE + TUV Approval
  • Almost all of the tub comes pre-installed
  • There are multiple lights, Bluetooth and speakers
  • Comes with detachable cushioned pillows for added comfort

WHAT WE DIDN'T LIKE

  • Costs over $2000
  • One of the heaviest tubs on the list
  • Low heating power

#6: QCA Spas 2-Person Hot Tub

10 Best 2 Person Hot Tub Reviews 2020

Our biggest problem with this hot tub is that the tub is only delivered curbside. If you want to fit it in your bathroom or anywhere in the house, you will have to make your own arrangements.

So why rate it so highly? Well, it pretty darn good.

With 10 jets that focus on the mid-back, 2 for upper back, 2 for lower back, 2 adjustable vortex jets, and 2 adjustable vortex foot jets Pump, it is primed for a whole-body massage.

You do not want to spend hours cleaning and maintain your hot tub and with this, you won’t have to either. Why? That’s because the cabinets made with wood panels require no maintenance.

And if they get scratched or scuffed with time just reverse them and voila, they are just as good as new again.

Plus, it has a good drainage system with filters that keeps it dry and clean while the ozone keeps away germs, mold, and mildew.

It also comes with a stronger exterior structure with its Lucite-Xtra Acrylic build. Unlike other Acrylic tubs, this has a special 3 layer strengthening process called Dura-Bond that gives it the edge. Plus, you’ll get a cover that’s weatherproof for added protection.

Talking about safety, all cords are GFCI protected which means they prevent an electric shock making it ideal to leave your kids in it.

It also sports a powerful and quick 1 KW heater. There’s a 12volt light but no music system or Bluetooth capabilities.

Nonetheless, it is a solid hot tub that’s value for money.

WHAT WE LIKED

  • Solid Dura-plus construction
  • GFCI protected cords
  • Quick and power 1KW heater
  • Reversible wooden panels
  • Low maintenance hot tub
  • 18 jets for all-round body massage therapy

WHAT WE DIDN'T LIKE

  • Inconvenient delivery system
  • No music or Bluetooth
  • No adjustable LED lights

#7: Carver Tubs - TMS7248-12 Jet Hot Tub

10 Best 2 Person Hot Tub Reviews 2020

Does the fear of slipping prevent you from entering the hot tub? Or maybe you are worried about your kids?

Well, this Carver Tubs hot tub comes with a slip-resistant bottom to ensure you remain worry-free.

Once you are done relaxing in the tub, the water drains away within minutes and with great efficiency. This comes down to the special V body design jets that ensure every remaining drop flows down the drain.

Another thing we love about this Carver is that they give the users multiple options. For example, you can go with either the 12 jet, 6 jets tub.

You can also choose between models that have Bluetooth, lights, air massage, etc. or not  Since models vary in price based on features, there’s something for everyone.

If you are an eco-friendly person, there’s good news for you. Carver uses 25% of recycled materials. Plus, its acrylic build means there are zero carbon emissions.

One interesting feature that you can go for is the Vibrosonic Massage that further focusses on the stress points and alleviates any pain or soreness you in your back, shoulders, etc. (a feature no other hot tub on the list offers).

This also makes up for the fact that the Carver tub lacks jets as you are restricted to either just 12 or 6 jets. But one drawback nothing makes up for is the fact that no overflow drain is included.

WHAT WE LIKED

  • Slip-resistant bottom
  • Multiple models to choose from
  • Comes with special Vibrosonic Massage
  • Made using 25% recycled materials
  • Ideal hot tub for kids
  • Excellent drainage system keeps tub dry

WHAT WE DIDN'T LIKE

  • Just 6-12 water jets
  • Slightly noisy
  • No overflow drain included

#8: Mesa BT-084 Combination Tub

10 Best 2 Person Hot Tub Reviews 2020

Does decor matter to you? Then Mesa BT-084 could be your next hot tub simply because of its eye-catching design. But does that design come with functionalities?

There’s not much wrong with this Mesa Hot tub. It comes with adjustable, cushioned headrests along with contoured seats to ensure you feel like you are in underwater heaven.

Apart from that, Stereo System w/MP3 and adjustable LED lights ensure there’s never a dull moment especially if you happen to be alone.

With the heating pump, you can use the hot tub all year long (winters or summers, your hot tub in your haven any day).

At 150lbs, this is another very light hot tub when compared to other Acrylic hot tubs which makes it fairly easier to move around in case you have space both indoors and outdoors.

There’s also a hand shower. Plus, you get hoses and a faucet line which can be added later if needed.

Also, it comes with a whopping 7-year warranty while most hot tubs come with a short 2-3year warranty. So if you had any doubts about its durability or functioning, there’s your answer.

The only reason this sits on no.7 is that at $2000+ we would have liked a more detailed massage therapy with 15-20 jets so more stress points get covered. A faster water heater would have been great as well.

But if you want something light that’s premium looking, it is worth a consideration.

WHAT WE LIKED

  • Comes with contoured seats
  • Adjustable, cushioned headrests add to the comfort
  • It has an eye-catching design
  • Weighs just 150lbs
  • Comes with reversible drain
  • Great durability

WHAT WE DIDN'T LIKE

  • Lacks jets for a full body massage
  • Expensive considering its features
  • Slow water heating

#9: Bestway 60038E

10 Best 2 Person Hot Tub Reviews 2020

Light, portable, and cost-effective, the Bestway 60038E hot tub is another one of our favorite inflatable hot tubs and goes toe to toe with the Coleman. Though there are some contrasting differences.

Firstly, the Bestway hot tub has a lower capacity at 160 gallons compared to the 177 gallons of the Coleman.

It also features lesser jets. Though the 110 jets are only 4-5 lesser so the difference in the massage is barely felt.

Secondly, the Bestway tub does not give any warranty details. On the other hand, with Coleman, you get a 1-year warranty on the punk and 90-day warranty on the liner making it a more secure buy.

Lastly, the Bestway does not come with a chemical floater and thus does not do as good a job as the Coleman when it comes to maintaining hygiene.

But it’s not all bad.

If you like to sip on coffee or other drink while in the hot tub, there’s also a cup holder further adding to the convenience of using the hot tub.

Oh, and in case you live in an area where temperatures fall below 0, don’t worry, your hot tub is completely safe with the Freeze Shield. This keeps the tub a tad heated so no water freezes and damages the panel, exterior material, etc.

Further adding to the durability is its DuraPlus walls that have been stress-tested and thus won’t burst easily while also helping keep the temperature constant.

Also, it allows you to set the temperature between 40-104-degree Fahrenheit 40-days in advance with its power-saving, timer-controlled heating system.

WHAT WE LIKED

  • It is pocket-friendly
  • DuraPlus material has been stress tested
  • It has handles on each side
  • Light and portable
  • Allows you to preset temperature settings
  • Freeze Shield protects frozen water from damaging the tub
  • Comes with a cup holder
  • It has security lock ad other important accessories

WHAT WE DIDN'T LIKE

  • Lesser jets and water capacity than the Coleman
  • Slow heating system
  • Does not sanitize or clean the water
  • No warranty details provided

#10: SimbaShopping USA Whirlpool 2-Person Hot Tub

10 Best 2 Person Hot Tub Reviews 2020

Last on our list of the best 2-person hot tubs is the SimbaShopping USA hot tub. Heres’ everything about it.

The most unique feature about the tub is the electric leakage protection system which prevents users from suffering from an electric shock by automatically detecting and cutting of supply in case of a leak.

Apart from that, it has padded headrests along with 16 whirlpool jets designed to prevent soreness, pains, etc.


There’s also Bluetooth, 2 loudspeakers, and radio FM for songs, while the 8 LED light acts as Chromotherapy creating a soothing calm environment.

Like most hot tubs, this too has an acrylic exterior with a steel frame so the tub can withstand the test of time and easily last you for years.

Lastly, there’s also a handheld shower and faucet with the hot and cold ability for further convenience.

All these benefits will cost over $2000 and yes, some installation is needed as well though you won’t have to get even a single screw from outside making the tedious process a bit easier (even for first-time users).

  • Comes with Bluetooth and speakers
  • 8 LED lights for Chromotherapy

Best 2-Person Hot Tub Buying Guide

When looking to buy a 2-person hot tub, these are the features you should look for so that you get the best bang for your buck.

Number of Jets

Simply put, the more the number of jets the more therapeutic the massage will be. That is because it will be able to cover more stress points without you having to constantly adjust. The top tubs come with 28-30 jets whereas medium-range tubs have around 12-20 jets. Furthermore, having a Whirpool bath system, handheld shower and even faucet can add to the convenience and comfort.

Weight of the Tub

If you are plan on using the hot tub both indoors and outdoors you need something lightweight. Most traditional hot tubs tend to weigh around 200-350lbs. Though there are some exceptions like the Mesa hot tub that is just 150lbs. If you want something even lighter that you can carry on road trips, then we suggest you go with inflatable hot tubs that weigh around 50-60lbs.

Smart Features

Hey, you are in the 21st century and hot tubs aren’t the same anymore either. Did you know hot tubs can come with their own music systems now? Yup, plus, you can even connect your smartphone or a portable speaker using Bluetooth in case you are bored with the radio. Apart from that, hot tubs also have adjustable LED lights that do not just add to the mood but also helps with Chromotherapy.

Controls

Wouldn’t it just be a nightmare if you had to get out of the hot tub every time you wanted to adjust the temperature, change the music, or the flow? This is why it is important you get a hot tub where the controls are within your reach as you relax in the tub. Some hot tubs even let you control the flow, music, lighting, etc. using your smartphone. But keep in mind, these models will cost you well over $2000.

Conclusion

Who knew we’d be spending so much time at home in 2021 and thus why not make your home the most comfortable place. And one thing that personifies comfort at home is a hot tub. Our aim is to help you pick the best 2-person hot tub, one that fits both your needs and budget.
