Coast Spas, Winner of Best New Spa Design in Las Vegas

Las Vegas, NV USA
Don Elkington, founder of Coast Spas was at their booth when we stopped by.  Don is an iconoclast in the hot tub industry, having run Coast Spas for almost two decades – and always coming up with ground-breaking designs and features for his spas.  We were privileged to have both he, and Arvilla Schneider , show us many of their new spa models at the trade show.  Coast is the only portable hot tub that offers a ‘negative edge’ -like design.  Their new model with the water overflow and waterfall feature is truly a wonderful combination of technological innovation and beauty.  There is absolutely nothing on the market like these spas.  The strategically placed LED lighting both inside AND outside the spa synchronize to give an effect like a great Pink Floyd concert from the 1970′s!  Elkington reports that Coast never really has gone after the lower-end spa market.  All their models are real, true high-end tubs – from top to bottom.  Don’s forward-thinking vision for Coast has made these tubs popular in Canada, in ‘the states" (as he calls us) and more recently in Europe and parts of the Middle East.  A+ for best new spa design, overall high product quality, as well as having a stunning booth, with a spa light show that can’t be beat.
