What is the Lay-Z-Spa Surround?

If you’ve never climbed in and out of a jacuzzi before, you might be surprised as to how much of a stretch it can be. The fact is, not everyone is able to get in and out of tubs so easily, and that’s where steps and surrounds come in.

The lazy spa surround is one of the official extras, which means it is built for their round inflatable spas. This is only ever going to be a good thing for those spa owners who purchase only lazy spa hot tub accessories as they aren’t so keen on third party accessories. These surrounds come in different height levels and sizes and will link together through Velcro.

They are very sturdy, which means you should be able to seat and lounge several people at once.  Even better is the fact that you’ll have the option to get out and still enjoy the tub and the warm weather without having to be in the bubbles themselves.

What’s more, safety is key.  If you aren’t likely to find getting in and out of tubs too easy, you should always invest in hot tub steps or surrounds to help you on your way.  If not, you’re going to be at risk of doing yourself a mischief.

Detailed Review

Comfortableness 5/5

The Lay-Z-Spa surround system is built to offer you at-seat comfort when you’re not in the tub. The use and durability customers have had out of it make it popular among families and couples. It saves you from having to set up separate steps or seating, and even better is the fact that they are soft and rigid at the same time. They should take a lot of sitting and stepping across the months and years to come. If you need to hop out of the tub at any point, you can just lie back and still be in close proximity to the warming bubbles. The material and weight of it allows means great value for money and you can place towels on it for when you get out.

Winter Usage 4/5

On paper, the surrounds should work well during winter. Of course, it’s a good idea to keep everything covered up during frost seasons. There need to be a few more hands-on tests to work out whether or not they are really worth the price of admission from December through to February, but on the whole, we shouldn’t see why not. If the tub itself is winter-proof, the seating and surrounds will likely follow suit. Cover up and protect as much as possible, regardless.

Price 3/5

Pricing on the Lay-Z surrounds might catch a few people out. Many of the reviews from customers state that its good for a better spa experience but the inflatable hot tub surround is pricey for what is. You’ll need separate cushions to fit together, this might not be the most cost-effective option for a lot of people. However, if you’re really going to benefit from the extra padding and support, it might be a good long-term investment.

Should I Buy This Product?

Lay-Z-Spa surrounds are built by the tub manufacturers themselves, which means that you do get immediate assurance of quality.  What’s more, they are likely to be beneficial to you if you are in need of solid steps and seating around your tub or spa.  Rather than set up third-party steps or seating, it makes sense to go with an option that’s built for your brand.

The product may not be the most financially viable right away for some tub owners, however, you will need to think carefully about long-term appeal and needs.  Is it worth saving a little money for a surround or step that’s going to give you less comfort and support than what you actually need?  Not always.

Therefore, we would seriously recommend buying into Lay-Z-Spa surrounds if you need a little bit more comfort and stability around the spa.  Consider it your best chance to relax poolside next to your tub without risk of slipping or falling!  Give it a look. The surround is suitable for a range of models and options including the:
