A cabinet of wood or a durable synthetic lookalike surrounds the tub. Some newer models are made entirely from rotationally moulded plastic called rotomold, or "roto" for short. This material is tough, lightweight, inexpensive, and comes in a variety of colours. It's generally used only for smaller tubs that hold a maximum of six people. Still less common are above-ground tubs made of stainless steel, which is attractive and durable, but very expensive. Wooden jacuzzis for sale are the third choice among above-ground spas. These models hearken back to the hot tubs origins as a wooden wine cask. Typically built using redwood, cedar or teak, these spas often have a simple round design with bench seating.

These models hearken back to the hot tub's origins as a wooden wine cask. Typically built using redwood, cedar or teak, these spas often have a simple round design with bench seating. Because they're shipped in pieces and assembled on site, they can be carried through doorways and up or down stairs to their final location; bulky acrylic tubs may not fit through narrow spaces. The appeal of wooden tubs lies mainly in their durable construction and attractive appearance. Although they lack the contoured seating found in other spa types, they tend to be deeper, increasing the amount of legroom and the effects of buoyancy. Because they hold a greater volume of water, however, they're very heavy and must sit on a base of solid concrete or a specially engineered and reinforced deck. Unlike most other hot tubs, wooden tubs may be heated with gas or wood as well as electricity.
