Created by Lucite® America – one of the largest and most trusted acrylic manufactures worldwide. Our shells use a 4-layer QuadPlate™ lamination process and are cured in a temperature and humidity controlled oven to last the test of time. Our Sterling Silver acrylic (white with a silver marble Wash) enhances LED luminosity and appears visually cleaner compared to darker colours which can show water marks.
Is the Makalu for you?
This might be one of our smaller models but it has a big focus on hydrotherapy.
The Makalu easily punches above its weight, with all the elegance and functionality of our larger models, but in a more compact size. Comfortably accommodating three adults or a small family, the Makalu features two deep-soak bucket seats, one with a full neck and shoulder massage using eight jets dedicated to massaging the neck and shoulder and upper back areas. You can dream big with the deluxe lounger chair providing a thorough, full-body hydro-therapy massage from head to toe (literally). Melt your stress away in a single soak, this really is the icing on the cake!
The perfect addition for those with a smaller sized outdoor area where space is a precious commodity, or for older couples whose children have flown the nest (beware, they might just want to fly back)!

The ultimate in water sanitisation features to maintain crystal clear and clean

Ozone is drip fed into our unique turbo mixer as your water cycles, allowing it to effectively kill bacteria.
WhisperQuiet™ Circulation Pump
Our WhisperQuiet™ dedicated circulation pump helps water filter more often, making it cleaner, while also reducing filtration noise by up to 90%.
Our antibacterial filters work by continuously fighting the reproduction of bacteria in the water. With a Microban™ coating, they provide crystal clear water and need replacing less often.
Our Spas recognise that they are filtering while heating, so automatically adapt filtration cycles to save on power.
Daily Auto Sanitise
A daily purge of the plumbing lines as part of the sanitising cycle ensures your water remains fresh and ready to use.
Program your daily filtration cycles to suit you, from 1 – 24 hours daily. You can also set a sleep timer to silence the spa while you are asleep.

Frequently asked questions
ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE MAKALU
We feel two adults and one child is the perfect type of group to utilise Makalu’s space and layout. It’s a very popular model for people who are after great hydrotherapy but might be restricted for space. A great option for young couples, retired couples, or anyone looking to downsize.
Well, the Makalu is running a three-horsepower pump for a smaller spa pool with fewer jets than some of the similar-sized spas, so you end up with a very impressive pressure ratio with those jets. Simple answer; the Makalu has excellent hydrotherapy compared to similar-sized spa pools.
Of the compact spas, these two seats offer the most comprehensive hydrotherapy, particularly the seat with the shoulder jets. Those seats tend to be very popular among people looking for recovery with aches & pains, sore joints, or sore muscles.
Short answer; no. This spa is equipped with a Whisper-Quiet circulation pump that is specifically designed to minimise sound while the spa is heating or filtering, meaning it’s not going to keep you up all night from the backyard.
With very high-level insulation in conjunction with its circulation pump, the Makalu is one of the most affordable three-seater spas to run, across the market.
The Alpine Arctic™ Cover goes a long way in keeping the spa’s running costs down. Regardless of whether you’re experiencing summer in the Bay of Islands or a Central Otago winter, this ultra-thick cover will keep heat in and moisture out.
This tool works to make the spa pool more efficient in heating or cooling water, while also keeping your power bill as low as possible. Particularly beneficial in Summer when some groups may want to cool it down during the day and then quickly heat it back up for nighttime.
To utilise the WiFi feature, you’ll need purchase our wifi add on, and then download SpaNet’s SmartLINK mobile app, which will essentially work as a control panel for your spa – with all the convenience that a smartphone offers. Control your filter cycles, spa temperature, light colors, and much more through this intelligent app.
We value integrity here at Alpine Spas and take exceptional pride in our products. We proudly guarantee that every Alpine Spa is meticulously crafted with over 40 hours of skilled workmanship involved.
All of our spas are fitted with industry-leading components, such as Balboa® and SpaNet control systems. We use American-made Lucite® acrylic shells and the latest in water purification systems. Each model is also fitted with our robust Four Layer Insulation System, designed to heat your spa quicker and save you money.
In most cases, the answer is no. We’re a safety-first company and carefully design our portable spas to meet the fencing requirements stipulated in Council requirements.
Here are the stipulations made by councils.
- A cover may be used as a barrier for a small heated pool with a water surface area of 5m² or less and with walls that stand 760mm above the adjacent floor or ground.
- The cover must restrict the entry of children when closed.
- The cover must be able to withstand a reasonably foreseeable load.
- The cover must be able to be readily returned to the closed position and have signage indicating its child safety features.
Our spa covers far exceed the minimum requirements outlined.
