Aria Reviews

See what real Hot Spring spa owners are saying about their hot tubs.
We love our Aria hot tub! The Moto-Massage DX jets are amazing and it looks so nice with all of the color LED lights. It’s the perfect size for the two of us. Very easy to take care of and the FreshWater Salt System is great!
Hot Spring spa owner, Tennessee
Aria is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 104.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Aria Spa This spa is worth the investment. Easy to use and works great especially for hydro therapy after a great workout!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We are loving our spa From selection, to delivery, and install our spa has meet and exceeded our expectations. My only regret is that we should of gone with a bigger unit, however we had some space contraints.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Leaked from Day 1 update Repairs made to brand new tub 1 week after install did not fix the issue. Turns out the tub has 2 or more leaks. Still losing 1/2" of water per day and concrete slab is soaked. Local service Mgr. is trying to escalate the issue with Watkins. In his words he'd like to see Watkins send a new tub to replace this one as the repairs needed could be extensive and should not have happened on a brand new tub. He however did not sound hopeful of this. I did not pay premium price and wait several months for a defective tub. I'd like Watkins to stand by their product and make this right. Extremely disappointed thus far in my Hot Springs/Watkins product but still willing to give them the benefit of the doubt if they are able to resolve the mistake in a timely and satisfactory manner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life changing! Looked at every type of hot tub, every dealer, every brand and model and Hot Springs is the best! I use the Aria model every day or night and is absolutely a winner! TV outside and I’m all set! Of your thinking about or deciding between models, you can’t go wrong with this hot tub.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wish I had known more Although we love the spa, it’s made for large people once the water is in it and you’re seated. I wouldn’t recommend this for anyone under 5’3-5’5 as it’s a little deep when seated in some of the seats. I also would have liked a list of products that I would need to maintain the water balance. It’s not like they said, just change the salt cartridge and clean the filters and you’re good to go. That’s not correct. Once people are in the spa you need to test for the alkalinity, the salt, chlorine, and PH balance. I would get a recommended list of supplies before the spa arrives. Also you will need to add water periodically so you either need soft water or a way to remove the minerals that can damage the spa. I found the Hot Tub lady to watch and learn how to care for my spa.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great hot tub First, I’m not sure of energy usage/efficiency. Too many concurrent variables to discern. Spa delivers has strong jets that serve us therapeutically. This is the reason we chose this spa and it is fulfilling its purpose well. Good controls over all aspects of the hot tub. The floating control panel is nicer than I thought it would. Most cleaning is easily turned on and readily checked. The weekly or ten day cycle is starting to feel familiar and pretty straightforward. The after use self cleaning is rather nice. The salt system is great! It’s my first spa with this and I like it very much. My skin feels soft and natural Size is roomy but I wouldn’t put more than four in mine at a time. I’d get it again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life changing Amazing! We have had the tub for about a month and found ourselves in it daily. It has improved our quality of life in so many ways. Mainly we have fewer aches and pains and we sleep well after a good soak. It gives us so much relief to soak daily. The combination of lounge with shiatsu and high quality chair is perfect and there’s still room for more people when we have company. Love love love the salt system, too. We opted for the easy lift cover and that is also a game changer. No strain lifting! Couldn’t be more happy with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Our ideal spa Love our Aria. An American company worth the wait. The jets hit all the problem areas with adjustable pressure, the remote is so convenient, the lights are perfectly customizable, the color & design is sleek & inviting! Love the salt water system. Couldn’t be happier with our purchase!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb Spa We love our Aria! It has greatly eased my arthritis pain. My husband suffered a neck injury resulting from a motorcycle accident and the moto massage along with the neck massaging seat has greatly decreased his pain! We love this spa, it’s beautiful and therapeutic. We are happy we chose a salt water spa! No chemical odors & this spa stays so clean, beautiful and refreshing!! Expensive but well worth it! After 4 months of research, we choose a hot spring spa from their highlife series & it surpasses everything else we looked at as well as anything we have previously owned. Terrific purchase, we absolutely made a great purchase for our family! Thank You Hot Spring for a superb spa experience!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helps with chronic back pain The hot tub helps relieve some of the lower back pain that I have. If you are of short stature, sitting on the seat would be difficult as the seating is much deeper than the previous Hot Springs model we had. It was considerably more money than we were planning on spending but unfortunately the pandemic and living in the Pacific Northwest did not help with cost. Our sales rep has been great - even though we have already completed the purchase, she is still willing to answer questions so customer support continues, thanks Cynthia at Oregon Hot Tubs in Vancouver Washington!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Aria is an excellent and well-built spa. After a 9-month wait, we took delivery of our highlife Aria, and it has been fantastic. All of the jets are well thought out, and I really love the Motomassage feature of this spa. It feels like it is well built and very durable, and I'm hoping that it will last me for at least 20 years. I'm really glad that I splurged for a higher-end model because you can definitely tell that it has good build quality. I have had a little bit of issues getting my water chemistry down, but that's just because I'm an inexperienced owner. My dealer has been helping me out, because I have been having issues with a mustard colored brownish line forming around the water line almost immediately after filling it. They believe that I have iron deposits in my water, and the oxidizer is causing it to leave residue. Other than that, I feel like once I get my water chemistry figured out and have a routine, this will be a very low maintenance spa. Warranty has also been really easy to deal with, as our spa came with a cracked corner, and the dealer said that it would be covered at no charge to me and they would be out soon to replace it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Second Best Purchase Ever...First was my First Spa many years ago Amazingly Easy Water Care!...with the Salt System!...compared to my first spa years ago that used Bromine..in a floater....that required that I had to constantly stay on top of the Water Testing!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don’t waste your money We purchased 2 tubs, delivered in Nov. 2021.Both tubs are faulty. 1st tub required 3 different salt modules to get tub to run correctly. 2nd tub remains faulty, shuts down because of filters, requiring rotating filters wkly to operate. Also, water has to be bailed wkly and refilled because error code says to much salt. Discussed with quality

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A bit of heaven Our spa was installed a few weeks before Christmas - we live in New England on a lake and our first dive into the spa was on a snowy, cold evening. It was magical - snow falling on the lake as we lounged leisurely. Was memorable and soothing.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Electrical Problems… so many electrical problems When we first got this hot tub, we loved it… and then the power went out in our area. No problem, right? Wrong. When the power came back on, the hot tub tripped the breakers so there was no power to the hot tub. Unfortunately the hot tub is at our cottage and it was winter time. As you can imagine, this was a problem. A water line froze and split, and then it got warmer out. It then thawed out and the hot tub drained. Quite a surprise when we arrived there the next weekend. We’ve had this same issue with the hot tub tripping the breakers over and over. The dealer was terrible, and eventually the HotSprings contract went to a different dealer in northern Michigan. They tried to help, but here we are again. We arrived at the house yesterday (heavy winds knocked out the power a couple weeks ago) and the hot tub was empty with tripped breakers (both heater and pump breakers). The hot tub is still under warranty. The tub needs to be replaced. No one can figure out what’s happening with it, and I am out of patience. We even went as far as having the breakers replaced before this winter started just in case it was an electrical issue in the electrical panel. Nope. It’s a problem with the hot tub but no one wants to take ownership of the issue. This thing was $14,000 and it was, by far, the worst “investment” we’ve ever made. We have a lemon, and we need our hot tub replaced.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from hot tub feedback The spa is perfect! Hits all the spots. I am in the spa at least once each day usually more. You pay more for the spa especially when you go to a reputable dealer. However, the return you get is second to none. delivery and setup is well coordinated between spa folks and your electrician. I used one of the ones Hughes recommended because they know exactly what is required. if I have a question concerning maintenance, I call Lori and she has the answers. I take a spa sample in to get tested and know exactly what I need. Now that I am six months into it. I have refilled the spa after I purged and cleaned.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Limited Service Providers Bought the aria and loved it until I had a leak (which appears to be covered under warranty). However, the local Hot Springs company from where I purchased the tub can not repair this problem on site and have to bring the tub in to their shop to repair it. I was told this may not happen until Spring due to staffing. So, in meantime, I have to top the water off 2x a week to keep tub running and considering the water source near it is off for winter, a royal pain. The other alternative is to empty it and not use it. Considering the cost I paid for the tub...not exactly why I bought it. Definitely consider having more then one repair shop option when buying or you could find yourself with an out of commission expensive tub.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Traded my Vanguard in towards the Aria and...... I am NOT disappointed. The jets on the Aria hit all the right spots, and works wonders on the shoulder I had surgery on six weeks ago. Much easier to take care of than the Vanguard was. I had the Blutooth speakers installed in it and enjoy listening to music while I soak. I also very much like the waterproof wireless control panel. Makes it much easier to control the functions from the tub.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Our own oasis During the pandemic, we decided to create our own backyard oasis. Ordered in February 2021 and delivered August 2021. After 3 months, I can say this was a fantastic purchase. Never slept better and love the reconnection family time at the end of the day. Massage jets help with health concerns (circulation challenges) and ease sore muscles. Easy water care and super quiet, our Aria is now a part of daily life. Excellent product and highly recommend.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Possible defective manufacturing I purchased a 2015 Aria which worked well until just after the warranty expired in 5 years. The tub then began leaking from below, requiring me to send it back to the dealer with no guarantee it could be fixed. I was given a similar tub from the dealer in exchange, and it too developed a leak from below that once again will require return to the dealer to see if it could be fixed.This is twice now, within a few months, that my five and a half year old expensive tub had to be sent back to the dealer, at substantial cost to me, for a very similar leak that according to Watkins "is very rare". I think there is a manufacturing defect with this tub that the company is not disclosing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Decision This was far more expensive than what we had envisioned when we walked in the door to shop for one but it was money well spent with no regrets. In only a weeks time we have both noticed an increase in endurance flexibility and lessened pain in muscles and joints and our sleep is vastly improved. The guys that brought it were so very nice as well and very thorough. We couldn't be happier and absolutely love our hot tub!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Relaxing I really enjoy my hot tub. The water balancing is a lot more work then what I expected and my power bill did go up a lot more then what I also expected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Never looked back! This hot tub is amazing! Probably the best investment of my entire adult life! It has made working easier, parenting easier and life better. The only thing I’d change is one more side of foot jets( there are two jets on one side.). This tub will target every major muscle group if you’re willing to move around to find the right spots. It’s a therapeutic tub more than a party tub. I thought I wouldn’t enjoy it as much as a sauna but I’m very glad to have made this purchase first.
