A HOT tub company near Salisbury has received plaudits from an industry magazine for its holiday park spa. 

Catalina Spas, based in Gomeldon, was set up by Stephen Crabb in 1997. Since then it has grown to become a fully-fledged manufacturer,  but is still firmly rooted as a family-owned enterprise.

This year, it has been honoured with the Best Buy 2024 Award by WhatSpa? Holiday Park Magazine.

It won praise for its award-winning CS-3 Holiday Park Hot Tub, which was rated as an 'ideal choice for holiday parks, vacation homes, and other leisure facilities'.

Salisbury Journal: MD Stephen Crabb Catalina Spas

Mr Crabb said: “It’s a real honour that all of the hard work put in by the team here at Catalina has paid off with this national award. We are proud to be a local Salisbury-based business and that our products have received national recognition.”

Beyond holiday park spas, Catalina Spas also offers a wide range of residential hot tubs and swimspas, along with pergolas, pool and spa chemicals, pool and spa accessories, and more. 

The company has won many accolades over the years, including Mr Crabb being recognised for his outstanding service to the Hot Tub industry by the British and Irish Spa and Hot Tub Association. 

It was also one of the first companies in the UK to introduce groundbreaking features to hot tubs that have since become staples in modern spa design. From multi-point colour-changing lighting to integrated music systems, built-in televisions, auto-dosing systems, and even the UK's First Party Swim Spa, Catalina Spas set the benchmark for luxury and functionality.
