INTERIOR & EXTERIOR

From Soaking Bath to Outdoor Hot Tub

Soaking the body to recharge the mind is a practice that’s been indulged for centuries. Royal Tubs are proud to uphold this tradition with a range of Wooden Hot Tubs to give you personal oasis of relaxation, whenever you desire.

Standalone Tub

Simply classical

Give your home a touch of nature with a standalone wooden tub.
Deeper and wider than a standard bath tub, a standalone tub is the ideal plunge-bath – either as complement to a sauna, or on its own.
Standalone tubs are also suitable for retrofitting with a stove later, if you wish.

Wood available

  • Spruce
  • Larch
  • Red Cedar

Lined Hot Tub

Save time & add comfort

Our lined hot tubs are the union of timeless hot tub design and modern manufacturing processes, giving a perfectly natural-looking tub that couldn’t be easier to live with.
The natural exterior finish of the tub is maintained, with a hard-wearing liner fitted inside. This protects the timber frame and facade, meaning these tubs are suitable for use with filtration systems and chemicals, while cleaning hard-to-reach corners is a thing of the past.

Wood available

  • Spruce
  • Larch
  • Oak
  • Thermowood
  • Red Cedar

TIMBER CHOICE

Natural Variety

We know that every Royal Tub delivered is a dream come true
for one lucky customer, which is why we want to make every detail perfect.

Taken from sustainable sources by our carefully vetted suppliers, you can choose a timber that makes your tub “just right”.

Spruce
Larch
Oak
Thermowood
Red Cedar
Spruce: A robust, light-coloured hardwood, Spruce is often knotty, giving it a distinct finish. It is favoured for its sturdy nature and tidy shape after cutting
Larch: Beginning life as a very pale timber, transforming to a silvery grey with age (and without treatment), Larch is very resistant to attack from insects and rot compared to Spruce.
Oak: A very dense hardwood, Oak is famed for its striking grain and the gorgeous silver colouring it adopts with age. Its density makes it very heavy and resilient to decay.
Thermowood: Heat treated to close up pores in the wood and remove resin within the wood fibres, Thermowood is a light timber which is tremendously resistant to warping from heat and moisture, carrying a rich colour which tends to darken with age.
Red Cedar: An exceptional durable hardwood, Western Red Cedar has a reddish coloring which gives it striking visual appeal. Resistant to warping, moisture and decay make this timber a favourite for attractive outdoor use.

Frequently asked questions

Wooden hot tubs should be drained for cleaning every 2-3 days. This can be extended with the use of chemicals or filtration systems for tubs with a fibreglass or polypropylene liner.

Chemicals can be used with lined tubs (fibreglass or polypropylene) where the water doesn’t come into contact with the timber facade but they are not required.
Using chemicals can allow the same water to be retained for longer, between cleaning.

This is a difficult question to answer, because it depends!
Wooden tubs are unsuitable for chemicals, which means water should be changed every 2-3 days when in regular use, with the lid fitted while not in use to ensure no debris finds its way in.
For lined tubs (fibreglass or polypropylene), chemicals such as chlorine, or filtration systems can be used to maintain water quality for a period running into weeks.
Following basic practices such as showering before using the hot tub can extend the period between cleans.
In a commercial setting (such as glamping sites or holiday rentals), water should be changed for each new guests’ arrival.

If heat logs of seasoned hardwood are used there will be minimal smoke produced. Burning treated/painted wood will produce more smoke as well as tar within the chimney and stove.

Hot tubs are blissfully quiet. The only noise you will hear is the gentle crackling from the burning logs and perhaps the occasional light roar from the flame in the flue. Many people find these sounds relaxing and they add to the calming experience.

Not at all. Unless you really neglect your tub it will last for years with minimal effort. Wood naturally releases a gentle antiseptic that will help to protect your product.

EFFICIENT, NATURAL WARMTH

Simply Warming

Every Royal Tub has a stainless-steel wood-fired stove at its heart, harnessing the magic of natural woodfire to aid your relaxation. With a traditional wood-fired stove you’re left only with the soft crackle of firewood and the enriching aroma of woodsmoke to accompany your indulgent escape.

Manufactured to the highest standards, our wood-fired stoves are built to heat your tub quickly, letting you enjoy your oasis whenever you desire with minimal running costs.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

As easy as one two three

Firing a wood fired hot tub has never been easier! We have made sure that this process is not only easy to start and control, but it is also a real pleasure

Light Your Fire

Follow the simple steps provided to light the stove and start warming your tub.

Let Nature Work

Use the stove’s simple airflow control to regulate the burn. and leave your tub to heat. The warm water will naturally rise from the stove to the bathing area.

Slide In & Enjoy!

Once your tub is up to temperature (around 39C) throttle back your stove and slip into your peaceful retreat.

ENGINEERED TO LAST

Built To Harness Nature’s Warmth

All Royal Tubs Stoves are manufactured from high grade and efficiency stainless steel, selected for its efficient heat transfer, strength and longevity.

Our standard stoves are built using 430 grade stainless steel and we also offer upgrades to 304 and 316 grade stainless steel, which boast improved composition and are a must if chemicals are to be added to the water

HEATER TYPES

Discover The One That Lights Your Fire

The stove isn’t just the heart of your tub… It’s the centrepiece around which everything is built. Find the fire that warms your Soul.

Internal Heater

Built within the structure of the hot tub, internal stoves allow direct heat transfer with no danger to little hands and bare legs. Separated by a fence inside the tub, internal heaters are a subtle feature that let your Royal Tub’s natural features take centre stage.

Air flow is regulated thanks to the stove lid which features a wide handle for safe use. The side-channel on the right ensures that air can reach the heart of the fire to regulate its intensity.

The bottom of the stove is fitted with two channels where the heat is at its most intense. Due to the gravitation effect, the warm water within the stove naturally rises into the bathing area, allowing the heat to be distributed without pumps or valves.

External Heater

The external stove stands apart from your tub taking up no space within the bathing area. Use this freedom to stretch out and relax, or add two more people to your party! Cleaning, lighting and reloading the fire is also made easier, with full access available to the chamber.

Air flow is regulated using vents on the loading door. The side-channel on the right ensures that air can reach the core of the fire to increase its intensity. The ashpan is easily accessible from the front of the unit, making maintenance a breeze.

Gravitation allows warm water within the stove to naturally rise into the bathing area, allowing heat to be distributed without pumps or valves.

Electric Heaters

Looking To Set And Forget?

Wood-fired stoves are adored for the atmosphere they create, but we know sometimes you want to lift the lid and jump straight in…

Electric Heaters let you keep your tub up to temperature, so you can slip in at a moment’s notice.

We can fit your tub with an electric heater alongside, or in place of a wood-fired heater so you can enjoy the best of both worlds.

Very little! If good-quality logs are used, the ash will need to be emptied from the stove periodically.

You can remove ash from the stove easily using the tools provided. The ash can be composted or used in the garden as a fertiliser.

If heat logs of seasoned hardwood are used there will be minimal smoke produced. Burning treated/painted wood will produce more smoke as well as tar within the chimney and stove.

As a general indicator, a larger hot tub will require 6-8 good-quality logs to heat up from cold. This will vary depending on a range of factors including the size of your tub, weather, and when your tub was last used.

We recommend using seasoned hardwood (moisture content <20%) or heat logs.

Depending on when it was last used, the wood being burned, the size of the tub and the weather conditions, the tub will reach temperature in 1-3 hours. If the tub is being heated from cold, 1.5-2 hours is a reasonable expectation.
