The story of Badbaljan began by chance more than anything. In 1999, we found ourselves relaxing in an outdoor hot tub during a holiday trip to the Arctic. At the time we happened to be looking for products that we could sell in the winter. We found that moment in the hot tub very enjoyable, and once we started coming up with ways of making the experience even better, the decision to start selling and renting hot tubs followed soon after. We wanted to sell long-lasting hot tubs that would also be hygienic and easy to maintain.
