MSPA have once again propelled hot tub innovation forward with their all-new and improved Alpine Delight Bubble Spa. With a host of innovative features including a bias air chamber for reinforced stability, 108 effervescent air jets and a new wired remote control, the Alpine Delight hits all the hot tub spec heights.
But if you’re just dipping your toe into the spa market for the first time, you might not know what constitutes a ‘good’ hot tub. With this in mind, we’ll firstly take a look at buying considerations, before delving into the Alpine Delight’s cutting-edge features. The final section will cover the therapeutic benefits of a hot tub, for those of you not already convinced!
The assembly procedure is often overlooked by buyers, but it’s an extremely important aspect of spa installation as some models can be particularly arduous to set up. The Alpine Delight, however, features one button self-inflation, allowing you to erect your spa in a matter of seconds.
Determine how many people will regularly use the spa, then add 1 for a little extra space and comfort. So, if you expect 3 people to use the spa regularly, opt for a 4-person spa.
Air jets boost the spa’s air circulation, producing a pumping action that optimises the tub’s massage feature. Generally, the more air jets there are, the more effective the massage. Featuring an astonishing 108 effervescent jets, the Alpine Delight provides a consistent, luxurious massage experience that’ll leave you feeling relaxed and rejuvenated after every soak.
Another often overlooked factor – many hot tubs are surprisingly uncomfortable. The Alpine Delight, however, features cleverly positioned air jets on the spa’s base, which work synergistically to provide a weightless sensation that relieves tired joints and muscles. What’s more, its patented square shape and I-beam construction establish a secure structure that also maximises user comfort.
A crucial consideration for all spa customers; we know that price often takes precedent. Lower priced spas are often subject to quicker wear, while premium options are often out of reach for most budgets. Priced at just £339.95 (12% lower than RRP), the Alpine Delight offers a wealth of premium features at a mid-range price point. Perfect.
Now we’ve considered some hot tub buying essentials, let’s take a look at what elevates the Alpine Delight above the competition.
Capacity & airjets
Accommodating up to four adult users, the Alpine’s 42ᵒC water temperature and 108 air jets combine to provide a comforting, therapeutic aqua massage that everyone will enjoy. Moreover, the air jets’ intelligent positioning at the tub’s base provides a weightless sensation that eases joint and muscle tension – ideal after a hard day’s work!
Delight control system
The brand-new, innovative control system gives you full control over the spa’s functions wherever you are in the tub. Whether you want to inflate the spa, change the temperature or activate the massage system, the innovative Delight controller handles these jobs with ease. Just push the button!
Shape & material
The spa’s patented square shape crafted from MSPA’s famous 6-layer Rhino-Tech PVC liner guarantees a long spa lifespan and value for money, while its I-beam construction provides both and strength and durability, ensuring your hot tub is both structurally sound and comfortable.
As well as its therapeutic benefits, the Alpine includes some handy features that’ll help protect the environment – and your bank balance.

It even includes an intelligent alarm system that reminds you when to clean or change your filters!
