I'm no longer interested in swimming. I care for a pool that I have not swum in in 17 and a half years.
The choice is in your hands.

Hot tubs r good for muscular relaxation
and r eminently undemanding

My new shower that I installed a year ago is all the swimming I need these days.

@OmSigDAVID,
Hot tubs are rather luxurious and involve no swimming whatsoever. Would be even more embarrassing to drink oneself blottoed and accidentally drown in one. Wink

@tsarstepan,
That has happened, no links. Also had a friend get some icky poo from one, or so she said.

I've liked spas when asked to do them, but I've liked things like an ofuro better.
Have specified spas and worked decks around them, yadda yadda.

We all had a rule - there was an inverse ratio of use of the spa re the number of feet from the house door.

Me, I've only been in a spa a few times, after some tennis matches. No big deal.

This is a little wry, as I've done designs on some biggie estates.

I would likely snooze in the hot tub. Would have to be careful to not drown.

Yes; that is too embarrassing; Emily Post woud not approve.

I had an adventure with one, to wit:
I drank too much one day at a summer resort.
Around 7 PM, I had an appointment with a masseuse,
who did a fine, creditable job on me, after which,
her fingers chanced to lightly graze my lower back muscles,
precipitating a major spasm of my back muscles
(attributable to excessive cognac); quite painful n disabling.

At my request, some other attenders dragged me into the hot tub
in an endeavor to relax that spasm, with a limited degree of success.
The next day, with additional exposure to the 104 degree water,
the spasm eased up somewhat, to where my ability to walk was restored.

Hot tubs r good.

@edgarblythe,
I don't really get them myself. Well, can envision them as titilating.
If you need that.

Ok, ok, I'm being bad. I can understand them, especially if they are right out the door.

I've designed saunas too, and relate to them more easily.

I 'm rather fond of the one in the Golden NUgget Hotel in Las Vegas.
Its a nice place. Thay successfully endeavor to be luxurious.
I use it every time I stay in the Golden Nugget.
I have even come from other hotels in Las Vegas for that spa.

@ossobuco,
I'll add that I am now officially annoyed at all the bing pops. I had a lot of trouble just posting and trying to get rid of repetitive sales blasts.
Of course, I should connect to Contact Us, and we'll see, I might.

Woud u re-design it?

I gotta say:
when I fly in at nite,
looking down (I always reserve a window seat)
on the abundant color of Las Vegas Blvd., it makes me happy.

I 'm so HAPPY, walking thru the McCarran Airport.

@OmSigDAVID,
would I re design what? I'd play with the design of just about anything.

I took a streetfull of neon type photos in Vegas back in the early eighties, when my husband and I landed there after time in the mojave. There was a strike on. I did worm my way in, you know me, interested in hotel design. Ah, well, that's back in my photo stuff. I only got one photo, not important, bunch of lights.

Yeah, its fairly big.
Massages
It includes hi presure showers that
(in addition to normal functioning)
u can aim horizontal jets of hot water to massage u
from 4 directions.

Thay put out macadamia nuts, pecans, walnuts etc for u;
clean, cedar wood lockers, very comfortable robes

I 'm forgetting half the comfortable stuff thay give u.

It puts u in a good mood; deep tranquility

Whatever u said was: "Tackofibulosa". (Your vocabulary is bigger than mine.)

Around then, a friend of mine married a medical doctor from
Red China. For a wedding present, I gave them a honeymoon
of a week in the Golden Nugget Hotel in Las Vegas.
I thawt it 'd stand in good contrast to Red China,
which the bride had described as dismal, dreary, oppressive
and filled with terror. (The Reds tortured her grandfather.)

My friend, the groom, became a picture taking fiend,
with a new camera of his. He was hanging out the windows
of our taxi cabs taking pictures of colorfully lit casinos at nite.
He took 100s of pictures of us. I still have pictures of all 3 of us
holding submachineguns and revolvers at a gunnery range.

We had fun.
