This is our review of the Lay-Z-Spa Vegas hot tub (updated in 2023).
It’s no secret that the Lay-Z-Spa Vegas is one of the cheaper models, but does this mean it should be avoided?
We don’t think so, although you won’t get all the premium features of its more expensive rivals, you won’t be footing the bill for those either.
We’ve spent the last decade examining the UK’s full range of portable hot tubs. We’ve bought a fair few (probably too many!) and researched many more.
The Vegas Spa has been around for what feels like forever. It’s had multiple upgrades over its time on the shelves, and we think it has its place in the UK’s hot tub market.
Below we will look at:
We like this robust yet reasonably priced Jacuzzi, which may or may not be the perfect addition to your garden. Only you can decide.
This Lay-Z-Spa Vegas review will reveal what all the fuss is about.
Let’s dive in and take a closer look.
This no-frills hot tub easily accommodates six people and can be set up in minutes. The excellent overall functionality of this affordable blow-up spa is ideal for families on a budget or first-time buyers who want the features associated with this trusted brand.
Things like a rapid heating system, all-surrounding massage experience and circular beam construction make this Vegas hot tub one to be reckoned with.
The Vegas Airjet inflatable hot tub comes with everything you need, so let’s see what you can expect to find when you open it up.
If you purchase your hot tub from the official website, it also includes a free gold hot tub chemical starter kit worth £99 (although prices are usually not as low as Amazon so that may or not be a bargain)
In this hot tub review we make no secret that we like the Lay Z Spa Vegas but is this six person hot tub for you? It may come down to personal preference, but these pros and cons will help you decide.

Whilst Lay-Z-Spa hot tubs are some of the best around, we’ve noticed a few recurring problems that customers have experienced, including problems with the heating system not reaching the maximum temperature, water pressure and leaks.
Purchasing from an authorised supplier is essential, so these issues are covered under warranty
The Lay-Z-Spa Vegas is one of this industry-leading brand’s more affordable models, but don’t allow its price point to fool you.
Lay-Z-Spa has solidified itself as the most recognisable le inflatable spa brand on the market, so customers can expect each and every model to be packed with stand-out features.
As we’ve touched on above, the hot tub is great value but doesn’t include some of the features like Wi-Fi controls and headrests that more expensive models do. The good news is there are dozens of extras you can add on at a later date:
We’ve covered the features and what we like about this Lay-Z-Spa, below we’ll look at the specs and see exactly what you’re getting when you buy this well-made and durable inflatable spa.
The Lay Z Spa Vegas hot tub can comfortably accommodate up to six people, although, like many other hot tubs, we think you’ll find it more comfortable treating it like a four-person with maybe a child or two.
The Lay-Z-Spa Vegas internal dimensions are:
|Length of cable||7m|
The Lay-Z-Spa Vegas has a water capacity of 848 litres or 224 gallons giving it a filled weight of 1100 kgs (2426lbs) and an actual water flow of 1,325 litres per hour (350 Gallons).
The running costs of the Lay-Z-Spa Vegas are £7-£10 per week. This is based on using the spa 3-4 times weekly for 30-45 minutes.
However, it doesn’t take into account electricity tariffs which have seen recent increases, where your tub is positioned and if you use the cover to retain heat on cold winter nights etc. so, you may see the cost of running the Vegas vary.
The Lay-Z-Spa Vegas has 140 air jets that surround the base’s perimeter and provide a relaxing all-over body massage.
The new pump system also now allows the rapid heating system to be used simultaneously with the bubble jets meaning no annoying drop in water temperature.
The voltage is: 220-240V~50Hz, 2,050W at 20°C, Class II
The Lay-Z-Spa Vegas takes about 10-12 hours to heat up initially and reach the desired temperature, depending on the temperature of the fresh water you use to fill it and where it is located.
Then if you reduce the setting slightly, it takes just a couple of hours when needed to reach its toasty heat capability of 40 degrees
Yes, the Lay-Z-Spa Vegas comes with an insulated cover which is lockable to prevent hot tub accidents and also helps to retain heat when the spa is not in use.
This saves you money and, alongside the Freeze Shield technology, enables the Vegas to be used throughout the year.
Lay-Z-Spa tubs all come with a 7-metre cable as standard (the longest ones we’ve seen), making them ideal for when they are not positioned close to a power supply
Setting up these hot tubs is a breeze requiring no special knowledge or tools. Like all Lay Z Spa models, it comes with an instruction manual and there are plenty of online resources to help you set up the Vegas in minutes, along with changing the filter cartridges, dealing with chemicals and other maintenance topics. This is our page that lists the best chlorine for hot tub models like this one.
The Bestway Vegas can be inflated in under 5 minutes by simply connecting the supplied inflation hose to the pump and air valve and pressing the bubble button on the digital control panel.
Some of the newer model of hot tubs come with a pressure gauge; however, you know it’s fully inflated when it is touch soft.
To deflate the Vegas by Lay-Z-Spa, simply empty the water, then loosen the inflation valve and remove this will release the air. Once deflated, you can fold the hot tub’s outer shell to remove any remaining air.
The filter goes inside the filter housing, which simply unscrews and can be found at the base.
Online Lazy Spa Vegas reviews show it is one of this brand’s more popular hot tub models. It scores on average 4.5/5 on Amazon and is consistently rated as one of the top spas, with customers remarking on the build quality and ease of set-up.
Whilst it doesn’t have all the bells and whistles of some hot tubs, this inflatable model does the basics incredibly well without the premium price tag.
The Vegas hot tub doesn’t include LED lights; however, these can be bought online reasonably cheaply, so they can be added later if needed for a party or if you want to add some ambience to your nightly soaks.

Most of these stores offer delivery services or collection on these products.
Both Homebase and Amazon have Vegas inflatable hot tubs in their clearance sales at the time of writing, with Amazon being slightly cheaper.
We think it is an absolute steal as you will generally pay much more and you could stock up on filter cartridges and accessories with the money you save!
