HOT TUB, SWIM SPA & WELLNESS NEWS

Sunbeach Increases Range Options With The Addition Of Oasis Brand It’s been an interesting year for hot tubs sales so far – it seems the UK’s insatiable desire for one grows by the week, but with waiting lists drifting into months rather than weeks, disappointed customers are finding that the prospect of a hot tub for the summer is slipping away. So, with factories already running at maximum capacity, what is a company to do to keep up with demand? Fortunately, Sunbeach Spas had already seen which way the wind was blowing and following several months’ hard work, they signed a UK exclusivity contract with the world-renowned Oasis Spas for both their hot tub and swim spa ranges, significantly increasing their own offering and supply capability. So why Oasis Spas? Well, there’s a number of reasons. Firstly, product quality – they really do make spas which are built to last! With six laminated layers, their acrylic shells are 8-10mm thick and are said to be the thickest and toughest on the market. These in turn are supported by premium-quality, highly reinforced cabinets and fitted with easy to maintain components and Gecko electronics. Secondly, company reputation. With retailers in over 35 countries around the world, and with offices across Europe, Asia and Australia, Oasis Spas are already a well-established and respected brand. With the explosion of interest in the UK hot tub market, many brand new companies have appeared from nowhere. Sunbeach have been in the Midlands for over ten years, and wouldn’t risk their reputation with anyone who didn’t have that same level of experience. Oasis are also keen proponents of energy efficiency which gels perfectly with our Sunbeach’s ideology. Finally, product exclusivity. UK dealerships can be assured of no price undercutting – Oasis Spas are strictly only available to dealers with physical showrooms, so there’s no direct competition from low-cost internet sellers, and dealership sales areas are carefully curated to avoid clashes between nearby showrooms.

In the February issue of SPN, we ran a feature entitled ‘2021 Hot Tubs – The New Season’ in which we stated that Award Leisure were celebrating an exclusive UK distributor partnership with Beachcomber Hot Tubs. It has been brought to our attention that this information was in fact incorrect and we would like to clarify that whilst the company are working with the brand, it is on the basis of being an approved, nonexclusive retailer. As long-term partners to Beachcomber, SCP UK continue to operate as the main distributor for the brand within the UK. We would like to take this opportunity apologise for any confusion that this incorrect content within our feature may have caused.
