Easy set-up in 10 minutes, no professional installation required
The Lay-Z-Spa Vegas comfortably fits up to 4 people and can be used both indoors and outdoors. This inflatable spa is easy to set-up in minutes, requiring no tools or professional installation. The inflatable hot tub comes with an attractively styled leatheroid cover with easy to fasten clips and inflatable inner lid providing superb heat insulation to help keep your hot tub up to temperature.

Hugely versatile, the Lay-Z-Spa Vegas can be put in place for long-term use, or moved around for occasional use for parties, BBQs or to a friend’s house.

We ordered two days ago and Tesco Direct have just dropped the price from £369, phoned up and asked the customer services nicely - they've refunded the difference for us.

Managed to get Homebase to price match yesterday .......no problem just a picture on my phone from the Tesco website was proof enough. One thing when collecting ....the box is fairly large plus the box is very heavy .....really needs two people to handle it

The range are still doing the Havana spa for 299. It comes with everything this one does but also includes two free pillows.

I have one. If anyone has any questions please ask.

Some small info they don't tell you....

You need 700L of water to fill it 80% full. Contact your water company to arrange a discount on sewage charges if you are not emptying it out into the sewer.

You need chemicals. You will need to buy chlorine (or bromine which is better) and you need test strips to test the water PH level etc....

There is nothing super fast about the heating. It says it has a fast heat option, but it also tells you it will take about 8 hours to raise the temperature from cold tap water to the 40 degrees.

It uses about 2kW of electricity. So that's about 20p an hour for me (10p per kWh)

​Are you glad you bought it though?

Does anyone know if these were reduced in price over winter? I'd expect so, but I'd love it if anyone actually saw these on sale last winter. I'd like one, but I'm in no rush for me.

This is apparently what Disney use on their water rides, so if you do use Bromine, be prepared for a pleasantly nostalgic dunk.

Not very relaxing, sounds like a tank when the filters running

I have a 450l fish tank which I have to do a 50% water change every 2 weeks, as it's over stocked. Do they offer much of a discount? I usually drain it into the garden stones and it soaks away.

Honestly, how good are they?

I'm tempted, but they look like paddling pools. How powerful are the jets, how comfy are they considering there's no seats?

How impressed / unimpressed are you?

ok yes im glad i bought it.
they're ok, its fun for a while.
i heard some scare stories from other owners, like they ripped, or that bestway wouldn't replace broken parts etc.
I can't comment on that because mine is only a few months old and so far everything is going great (touch wood)...

@scott... the discount will be applied on a case by case basis. my water company asked me to complete a form stating how much water, how often it's changed, dimensions of the spa etc etc... it totalled up to about a 15% discount so I was happy with that. Of course I had to guess at how often it would be emptied but the manual says every 3 days and I assumed I would use it over summer and calculated my use. Of course, other water companies may be different

Thanks for the info, what chemicals and strip's do you recommend.

I'd get one, but like my spas chilled -Having a filter that sounds like someone with a pneumatic drill is a no no

I buy bromine tablets from Amazon now. Usually about 1kg of them for £10 ish... But I used to use the recommended kit made by a company called clearwater. Then I bought myself a ph meter from ebay for £5 as it worked out cheaper and more accurate. The clearwater ones work fine its just cheaper to buy a tester and some chemicals separately. Hope it helps.

The Havana at The Range is based on the Miami (2-4 person tub) not the Vegas which is a larger 4-6 person tub.

Comfortable IMO, jets are annoyingly noisy plus using them cools the water.

I've had 2, pumps packed up both times, got 2 summers out of each!.....mine had some hammer though as kids played in it so water had to be topped up each night!......I'm pretty sure one pump failure was due to this, I know others who still have them after a few years and are fine, but theirs haven't been used as a glorified paddling pool!.....when water is circulating noise is fine, it's very noisy when the bubbles are on though!

Would be extremely surprised if 6 people can fit in it. Maybe 2 adults and 4 small kids ?
The spas will never accomodate how many people they claim to unless they are extremely small thin people
But yeah good point I hadn't noticed it was bigger than the Havana... any idea on size.

If two people get into my Havana spa it's pretty full !!

​no way should you need to empty it every 3 days. with proper chemicals you could empty it every 3 months.

Bought one of these for the garage the missus has no idea to get into a few months ago, a week before I bought it she bought garden furniture I have pretended take 2 hrs to make up one chair (it takes 20 mins) So I go in the garage and Have a lovely relaxing dip for an hour and a bit then make up a chair whilst my skin de-wrinkles from the Jacuzzi. Perfect crime

I agree. I was only going off what the manual said when giving the water company an estimate on usage. I have yet to keep the water more than a week though. But yeah pools and bigger spas people often change them after months not days or weeks. I guess it all depends on how dirty the water is after you get in haha!! always have a shower first, and maybe after too.

Buy the one for the number of people you expect to use it.
I would buy the Vegas if more than two of us were gonna use it. My Havana says 2-4 but as I mentioned earlier, there is no way you would get 4 people my size in there and I'm not exactly big either. But if you want more than 2 people to use it at the same time, I'd say get the Vegas. They are both almost identical anyway (same pump/covers/filters etc) the only difference is the Vegas is a bit bigger I guess.....

Thanks for the comments guys

I've got a vegas. I guess for the £240 we paid it's not bad. It's great for the first use but after taking down, storing, and getting out again, I'd say it's a bit of a pain. It's impossible to get completely dry so storing it makes it a bit grim. A lot of messing adding chemicals to the water every day too. The 4-6 person Vegas is 4 person max. You'd have to be very friendly if you wanted to squeeze 6 in.

Cheers for the advice
So something along the lines of this with the tablets incuded extra?

Thanks everyone, I purchased a starter kit too, most people I know say the same it's good start and then they move to chlorine / bromine tabs and floater which can be found on eBay / amazon ebay.co.uk/itm…AIT

I have heard bromine is kinder on skin :-)

Reduced to 265 in Homebase this afternoon

Can't decide if I want one or not!!

Does anyone have any idea of electric running costs?



Costs me nothing MUAHAHA (i have solar power)

It's going to cost about £1.60 - £2 a day depending on the cost of your electricity and the ambient temperature and what temperature you want it to be raised to. So as a very rough guide.... assume £2 a day. But that is also assuming you use it every day. I don't heat mine every day but I do leave the filter pump running when there is water in there.

Also looking at some of the comments above.... my Havana came with a chemical flotation device, i'm not sure if this does maybe someone who owns the Vegas can comment on it... but I'd imagine you get the floater included.

Studio are doing a aqua spa for £250 instead of £500 and it's amazing .... comes with a bag to store it in over the winter and a zip on cover to keep the spa upto temp!! Has 100 jets and a filter that u can rinse and reuse tend replace after 12 months.... brought the chemicals to keep it in tip top condition and we love it ... better quality than lazy spa too

I have the Lay-Z-Spa Saint Tropez Hot Tub (same as Vegas, but outside cover and pump are dark blue, instead of grey/beige). I had the Vegas before.
I put a plastic "mat" underneath the pool and have a 6 sided Gazebo (from Argos) over it. The Gazebo is good for keeping the sun and rain off the pool.
"Although the spa pumps are waterproof, if you are expecting very heavy rain we would recommend the pump unit is detached from the spa (use the stopper caps, to allow you to do this without losing the water) and bring inside."
Download Vegas Instruction Manual here:
bestwayaftersales.co.uk/med…pdf
When filling the pool, I reduce the hot water temperature flow supplied by the house boiler, and fill direct with a hose from the hot tap.
I use a pump to empty the used pool water into water tubs and use it for plant watering and washing the cars with a Karcher jet gun, fitted with a suction hose.
Some people wash the filters in their dishwasher, I find it more effective to soak them overnight in warm water with "Vanish" dissolved in it.

What make and model is this one?

With some ClubCard Vouchjers and the free delivery trial, managed to get it for £250. Kids will be happy.

Anybody know where I might be able to get a cover to fit the spa. One that will cover the whole thing?

How well do these compare to a proper hot tub?
