D1 SPAS DEBUTS LIMITED-EDITION SWEETHEART OF A LOVE TUB FOR VALENTINE'S 2008 WITH ONLINE GUESSING GAME
Vista, CA (January 23, 2008) / PRNewswire / – You've heard of winning a prize for guessing how many jelly beans or marbles are in a jar? Well, this Valentine's Day, Dimension One Spas is taking the idea a big step further. They've filled a hot tub with those popular heart-shaped candies, and the person who guesses the number of candied hearts inside wins a fantastical home spa!
And not just any hot tub: The Love Tub is a limited-edition, candy apple-red, $20,000, state-of-the-art Amoré Bay hot tub from Dimension One Spas.
The Southern California-based hot tub company is manufacturing only 100 of these "Walker Signature Series" Amoré Bay spas, created by the company's award-winning designer, Vic Walker.
Contestants can enter online between now and February 29, 2008, at www.d1spas.com to try and win the sexy, candy apple-red backyard retreat.
With curvaceous lines, strategically placed water jets, mood lighting, a "playground" area and cup holders, all that's left for you to do is download Marvin Gaye or Babyface on the Amoré Bay's iPod-friendly stereo. An irresistible backyard oasis, the Amore Bay also features his and her "hydronomically"-designed lounge chairs lined with massage jets, relaxing fountains, a remote control to select your underwater massage programs and a sleek, energy efficient design with average heating costs of only $15 a month (subject to individual heating costs).
But can such a steamy Shangri-La really help your sex life? According to Dr. Michael Mantell, the answer is yes. Mantell is a psychologist and former faculty member of the UCSD Medical School, Department of Psychiatry, who has authored more than a thousand articles on romance and marital success, stress, employee relations, and general family mental health issues for publications around the world. Mantell states that couples need to set aside a time and a place to regularly nurture their relationships.
"Spending time with a loved one in a warm, wet backyard spa is a healthy alternative to Viagra®," Mantell says.
"Have you ever seen kids in water? They just have fun," he explains. "It's very difficult to be stressed out in warm water. Couples seek my relationship advice, and I think reconnecting in the world's ultimate underwater bedroom can only do wonders for any relationship. And what better way to keep the flame alive than in a sexy, $20,000, red-hot, hot tub!"
To add to the drama of the signature tub's design, the six-person spa's eco-friendly gray exterior is not only made out of recycled plastic milk jugs like most D1 spas, but it also debuts a new black-etched Palm tree design panel in front. The high tech water jets on the tub's candy apple-red interior are enhanced by black accents. (For those who prefer a more neutral colored tub, the Amoré Bay interior shell and exterior comes in an array of other colors, featured at www.d1spas.com).
"We really try to keep a sense of humor and creativity alive and well in our company," explains D1 Spas owner Bob Hallam, married 30 years to his business partner Linda. "So I wasn't surprised when one of our employees presented the idea of the Sweetheart of a Love Tub contest. A shiny red hot tub filled with candied hearts sure beats a box of chocolates on Valentine's Day!"
