Cornwall Living 2018

Bring on the bubbles

As OC Spas wins ‘Spa Retailer of the Year Gold Standard Award 2017’, it’s time to relax outside in the hot tub.

With spring on the way, we’re itching to get back out into our gardens – and what better way to do so than slipping into a luxurious, soothing hot tub. Of course, the great thing about hot tubs is that they can be enjoyed any time of year, whatever the weather – ideal for those overcast days we’ve had too much of recently. With this in mind, we were excited to hear recently about a Cornish success story, with OC Spas making a splash on the national stage – the perfect excuse for cracking open some bubbles!

The dealership was formed in 2015 by husband and wife team, Jonny and Lucy Bottrell, and within its first year of business notched up two industry awards. This year the couple have won again, scooping the prestigious ‘Spa Retailer of the Year, Gold Standard Award’ at the UK Pool and Spa Awards in Birmingham. Christina Connor, publisher of Hot Tub and Swim Spa Scene magazine says of the awards: “The competition raises the profile of the entire water leisure industry and recognises companies that provide us with first class hot tubs and swim spas.”

Located next to Goonhavern Garden Centre near Truro, OC Spas is an exclusive Artesian Spas dealership, with a selection of hot tubs, swim spas, chemicals and accessories on display. “We offer all potential clients the opportunity to wet test our showroom spas,” says Lucy. “We do this after opening hours where they get the showroom all to themselves, and we give them a couple of hours of pure indulgence. We have changing rooms, equipped with fluffy towels and OC Spas robes, and a fridge fully stocked with prosecco!”

Lucy continues: “Our clients appreciate a more discreet and sophisticated level of shopping. A hot tub is an extremely personal item, and the relationship they have with their chosen hot tub dealer doesn’t just stop at the point of purchase.”

OC Spas stocks only the most luxurious hot tubs and accessories, its bestselling models being the Antigua and the Nevis, both from Artesian’s Island Spa range. The range offers a selection of hand-sculptured, high quality hot tubs, chosen for their hydrotherapy, energy efficiency, water quality enhancing features and patented Helix jet design. The Island Spa range are among the highest-performing, best looking, premium spas on the market which always perform consistently at the top of their class.
