VISTA, Calif. — March 15, 2017Hot Spring® Spas has announced availability of the Aria® NXT and Vanguard® NXT, two new midsize spa models in the 2017 Highlife® Collection NXT lineup. These spa models give hot tubbers even more options and opportunity to be at their best every day. Hot Spring also added new, programmable under-cabinet accent lighting to every model in the 2017 NXT line.

“We’ve added these two models to the NXT collection in response to the growing demand for our premier spa line,” said Mike Dunn, Executive Vice President of Watkins Wellness™, maker of Hot Spring Spas. “These additions will appeal to shoppers who want a midsize spa that makes a unique design statement.”

Taking Better to the NXT Level

The new Aria NXT has 35 jets and seats five, including a lounge. The Vanguard NXT has 38 jets and seats six, with no lounge. These two new models join the full Collection NXT line of spas, which features a sleek, high-end and surprisingly different exterior design.

A Real Glow-Getter

That visual impact of all NXT spas is now enhanced by programmable under-cabinet accent lighting that adds drama and enhances the elegant design features. Luminesence® multi-zone lighting allows NXT spa owners to choose one color or select a loop that cycles through all six colors. Owners can adjust the mood from a subtle glow to a show-stopping display of light.

Owner Says: ‘The Highlight of the Day’

“Never had a desire to own one before,” an online reviewer wrote on March 5. “Had been in many and seen many but none of them had been a Hot Spring spa. After visiting a showroom on a whim we discovered how different they were from the others. The quality of the product was much higher than so many others and that also showed in the warranty coverage. At first, the price seemed high but after comparing with other lower quality brands it turned out to be well worth the little extra money … it is still the highlight of the day. Wish we hadn’t waited so long to discover this life.”
