Indulge in hydrotherapy in the comfort of a private, powerful, outdoor, deep-seated hot tub by Hydropool. Bathe under the sky and let the healing powers of warm water, fresh air and massage jets bring vitality and harmony to the mind, body and spirit. Treat yourself to relaxing 38o water, water jets, air massage and bubbles with 4 different loungers offering different massage strengths, directions and vibrations to the upper and lower body areas. You have completely private use of all the hot tub and its 4 seats, and each element - neck waterfalls, massage jets, bubbles, and air jets - can be individually controlled from being off, to low, to high intensity. Choose your moments in the outdoor steaming bath between a calming soak and an invigorating massage. Control is at your fingertips!

My personal recommended time is for 20 minutes before a treatment, as this warms, soothes and invigorates the muscles, mind and body, which is ideal mentally and physically before a massage. You can choose to enjoy it as a treatment in its own right for 40 minutes or an an hour. One hour allows you 15 mins in each seat. You can make a romantic gesture and invite your partner. You can relax with your friends or family. Alternatively, retreat in the suite for longer sessions where you enjoy the whole private spa on your own, with your partner, friends or family.

Relaxing, unwinding, partying, exercising, as a treatment of a number of muscular-skeletal ailments, from arthritis to sports injuries to sore muscles. Sore muscles often come from the stress of daily life and herein lies the importnat effect of hot water bathing. As you relax in hot water, you're working on the root cause of many problems - stress.

Benefits of al Covo's Hydropool Hot Tub include:

  • 40 Massage Jets in 2 Loungers and 2 Tub Seats - Experience a massage focused from powerful wide body streams to penetrating finger tip massage on the lower back, upper back, hamstrings or calves. Hydropool's work with aquatic therapy professionals and sports professionals have re-engineered the seating and loungers to obtain best comfort for each body type, reinvented their jets to deliver over 10 different massage movements, and positioned these jets strategically to work on selected muscle groups. Different angles, pressures and acupressure locations are ready prepared in each of the 4 seats. Move around seats to experience different massages.
  • The Versa Massage System - Seat diverters and individual jet optimization offer you the ability to adjust and customize the intensity of the hydrotherapy to ensure optimal relief for your specific aches, pains or injuries. Whole seat's jets and individual jets can be turned off, to low, to high intensity.
  • Air Jets – What better way to end the day than by having a dedicated hamstring leg massage in the long lounger or short lounger's intense calf muscle air jets. Lower back acupressure points are massaged by air jets to ensure benefits in each seat. Soles of the feet are air jet massaged on the long lounger.
  • HydroVortex Jet - A high-speed jet that delivers a deep massage from the bottom of the pool, so you can enjoy deep muscle massages to your calves and soles of feet from the 2 deep seated tub seats.
  • Foot Massage – Stimulating the feet can relieve tension throughout the body. Make use of rotating foot balls on the short lounger, 2 monsoon footwell jets on the long lounger, and one large footwell jet for the 2 tub seats, in addition to the hydrovortex jet mentioned above.
  • Neck Waterfalls – Feel the back of the neck warm and relax with adjustable strength flowing water pillows. Whether vigorous, medium or gentle, these are excellent for relieving stress and headaches.
  • Bubble Sequence Massage - Rhythmic bubbling massage, full power air bubbles, or a personally chosen strength in big bubbles - exclusive to the long lounger.
  • Aromatherapy - A choice of aromatic scents enhance the spa experience.
  • Music, Chromotherapy and Candle Lighting - Colour sequencing LED lights are perfect for dark evenings. Complete the ultimate relaxation destination with a selection of our candles and music.
  • Cascading Hydrofalls – 3 arching, fully adjustable fountain jets with colour create frivolous movement and extra splosh!

Hydrotherapy jets promote the release of endorphins, which act as a natural pain relief system, improve blood circulation, which moves nutrients to feed cell regeneration and encourages the removal of toxins and waste, and stimulates the immune system. Studies have certified the real benefits that could come from a properly engineered hot tub to sufferers of arthritis, diabetes, digestive issues, insomnia, leg and back pain, sports recovery, metabolism, headache and stress.

The water is warm and soothing to the skin and nerves, so it also serves as a gorgeous, ready made, hot, outdoor bath. Relaxing and floating in the air and water, gives your muscles a rest.

Immersion in supportive water (and air) gives the muscles a real break from carrying you in its usual posture. It can be an ideal environment to stretch and increase mobility, using the resistance of the water.

Hydropool are the only manufacturer in the world of self-cleaning hot tubs. This means cleaner, double-filtered, less chemical, eco-responsible hot tub water.

Please bring your own bathing clothes! Use of the shower, flip flops, towels and robes are provided free of charge. Men's swim shorts and sunglasses can be provided if required.

This treatment is not suitable for pregnant women.

Reminds me of a Maldives rose bath... warm, soothing relaxation to prepare my muscles for a massage. But then turn up the power and WOW! A completely invigorating and a different experience - loved them both.
