  • Bath Features

    Specialized hydrotherapies and upgrade features on a bath are what drive the bathing experience. From air jets to heated backs, bathtubs can offer more than a simple soak. Explore the various options to discover the right combination of features that delivers your dream bathing experience.

  • Soaking Baths

    Soaking Baths

    A soaking, or standard, bath is designed with deep bathing wells and ergonomic contours shaped to hold the body for comfortable, deep soaking. You can enhance your soaking experience by choosing a bath that features one or more hydrotherapies and upgrade features. 

  • Hydrotherapies

    Hydrotherapies harness water’s natural ability to enhance well-being and give you the benefits of a spa treatment in the comfort of your home, so you feel centered and energized–your best self. The technology behind hydrotherapies combines air and water or sound and water to address specific areas of the body as well as provide a full-body experience.

  • Hydrotherapies


    Air baths offer a full-body massage experience. Kohler air baths are BubbleMassage baths. Purge cycles remove residual water from air channels after use to keep the system clean. 

    BubbleMassage Baths
    BubbleMassage hydrotherapy delivers thousands of bubbles that thoroughly support and massage your body for an invigorating, blissful experience. The system is hygienic and easy to clean, featuring automatic and manual purge cycles.

  • Hydrotherapies


    A targeted, powerful hydro-massage and consistent water temperature helps reduce tension and soothe sore muscles. An inline water heater and pump keep the water warm. 

    Effervescence Baths
    Thousands of tiny, champagne like bubbles travel slowly along the body, retaining their temperature and creating a warm embrace and a serene experience.

  • Hydrotherapies


    This hydrotherapy experience infuses water with sound vibrations that resound throughout your core, delivering unprecedented relaxation. You can use preprogrammed rhythms or your own music selection. This is Kohler’s exclusive hydrotherapy called VibrAcoustic®. 

  • Hydrotherapies


    Selected models offer combination hydrotherapies. The hydrotherapy experiences are operated from separate keypads, so you can control each one independently.
