23 Hot Tubs That Will Fit Through a Standard Door

Do you want a hot tub, but have no rear or side access to your backyard? Or perhaps you'd prefer an indoor spa, safe and protected from the weather.

Whatever your reason for needing to get a hot tub through a door, I was in the same position as you for my last spa purchase.

I had just moved to a house on a steep hill in San Francisco. It had a beautiful backyard with a perfect spot to put a hot tub—8' square, almost exactly level and with a fantastic view.

The catch?

The only way to reach it was via the 34"x80" front door, and through the house. So I began my research.

I was excited to discover that I wasn't limited to just an inflatable spa, and that there are in fact hardshell hot tubs that can fit through doors. This article is a shortlist of the options I came up with.

The requirements

  • Less than 34" deep (the width of my front door)
  • At least one side must be less than 80" (the height of my doors)
  • As light as possible (it also had to go up some stairs)

Full disclosure: I did not actually purchase all of these hot tubs (I am just one person, after all) so I can't review them for quality. However, I was in the genuine position of needing to buy a spa that would fit through my house, and will of course include the one I did finally settle on, and explain why.

2-3 person hot tubs that can fit through doors

As you might imagine, many hot tubs that will fit through a door are on the smaller side. If you're mostly planning to use your spa alone or as a couple, one of these could suit you just fine.

Smaller hot tubs also have the advantage that they can fit in smaller spaces once installed, which could be handy if space is an issue.

The spa I purchased

So that's it: my long list of hardshell hot tubs that will fit through a standard door!

The one I eventually went with was the Dream Maker EZ Spa.

Being rotomolded, it had a dry weight of just 280 lbs, which is very light for a 5-person spa (I was especially thankful for this when it came to getting it up the steps).

Dream Maker as a brand also came highly recommended, and overall I've been very happy with the spa, with no problems since installing it in 2017.
