The Highlife® Collection


To be at the vanguard is to find a position at the forefront of innovation. True to its name, this member of the Highlife collection does exactly that. A premium six-seater that represents the culmination of 40+ years of Hot Spring spa pool experience, a Vanguard owner can expect to work less, play more, and immerse themselves in one of the finest soaking experiences available.

Luxury squared

With a square footprint measuring 221cm x 221cm, the Vanguard offers up seemingly endless amounts of room. Step inside and you’ll be greeted by six seats, all lined around the perimeter of the spa to maximise the available room. Where other luxury models might try to squeeze in a couch or recliner - reducing the space in the process - the Vanguard has been designed as a place of equality, and enjoys extra room because of it.

That’s not to say that this spa pool lacks a truly indulgent and immersive soaking experience. You need look no further than the corner bucket seats. Lined with the Moto-Massage® DX, a jet that moves up and down your spine to deliver unmatched levels of hydrotherapy, you’ll feel yourself melting away. The same can be said for any of the seats, with 38 individual streams dotted around the spa.

A look to match the feel

The Vanguard doesn’t just deliver a majestic soak, it looks great while it does it. From the natural textures and tones of the timber-inspired cabinetry, to the organically contoured shell, this spa pool has been designed to elevate any space it’s placed in.

There are 24 different colour combinations to choose from, so no matter whether you want a spa pool that forms the showpiece of your backyard, or something that works perfectly with your other decor, you can be confident of finding a Vanguard to suit. You can then use the Luminescence® lighting system and BellaFontana® illuminated waterfalls to set the mood.

Automated maintenance

Historically spa pools have been a lot of work. Keeping the shell clean, the water fresh and the heat in has been a time-consuming and costly exercise that has put more than a few buyers off. But thanks to a complete suite of automated features, the Vanguard lets you say goodbye to all that work, and replace it with play.

Continuous circulation reduces noise and increases durability. Smart water care systems replace chemicals with cartridges. No bypass filtration takes care of any invaders. Tri-Thermic foam keeps heat in and power bills low. All in all, the Vanguard is a spa pool that largely takes care of itself!

Introducing FreshWater IQ®

Your spa pool should take care of you, not the other way round. FreshWater® IQ is the pinnacle of spa pool water care; a revolutionary system, a decade in the making, that delivers fully automated water care, checking your spa water every hour and telling you exactly how to keep it pristine.
