Caldera Spas Consumer Review
Caldera Spas is a company that, in their own words, sets out to “create the best hot tubs, the most comfortable, energy efficient and high performance spas on the market.” If Caldera has been able to get close to their goals then a Spa from this company could be well worth your money. Let’s take a look at what they have to offer.
What Makes a Spa?
Incorporating therapeutic benefits, a spa can provide a relaxing and luxurious retreat at your own home.
Modern consumers demand more than just a place in which to soak in hot water. Comfort is key, and this can be achieved with purpose designed molding and massaging jets. Styling is also a concern as modern tubs should feel a fully integrated part of the home. Finally, energy efficiency is a huge concern both for reducing running costs and protecting ecosystems. How does Caldera shape up?
Caldera offers a range of tubs from an affordable 2 person Aventine Spa in the Vacanza series, up to a luxury 8 person Cantabria model in the Utopia series. In total there are 13 models to choose from, divided into three price ranges. This allows consumers to choose an affordable spa that offers innovative construction and therapeutic benefits.
The therapeutic properties are not achieved with just the hot water itself, but with specially designed massaging jets built in to the hot tub. Take the Calera Spas’ Tarino model. This spa incorporates 23 jets in total, 2 of which are Adaptassage Jets. These jets provide a continuous rotating flow of water to provide a stress relieving massage. Coupled with 17 standard jets and 4 with adaptable flow, the Tarino offers fairly good coverage for a 5 person spa.
Caldera provides contemporary styling with their technological and therapeutic benefits, and the vinyl cladding emulates a traditional wood finish, without the risk of rot. Ergonomic molding makes the spas comfortable and eye catching. Incorporated in select models are options for digital control panels, MP3 integration, and customizable lighting systems to adjust nighttime ambiance.
TopTenReviews talked specifically about the Tarino model and the benefits of the 23 jets;
The 23 jets are designed to stimulate your body’s muscle groups differently depending on which seat you sit in. If you move through all of the seats in one hot tub session, your body receives a complete massage.
Many consumer reviews speak favorably of the Caldera Spa models. One owner who uses a Caldera Tahitian for medicinal purposes called the Caldera their “best purchase ever…” noting that it had provided a decade of trouble free operation. JobRite compiles consumer ratings for Caldera Spa, and all of the models average over 4 out of 5 stars. The Caldera Martinique holds an almost perfect 4.8 star rating from 75 reviews. Owners speak highly of the comfort, durability, and the ability to customize flow from the therapeutic jets.
Caldera Spas make a point of marketing their spas as the best in the industry, and the compelling feature set and positive feedback indicate that they’re at least on the level of the leading brands. With a wide product range and competitive feature set, Caldera Spas would be well worth investigating for your upcoming spa purchase.
