DADOquartz Freestanding Bathtubs – Perfect for Outdoors

The trending outdoor shower has gained much popularity in the world of bathroom design. The sequel to this design story is outdoor freestanding bathtubs; a newcomer to the trend of taking the indoors outdoors. Alfresco baths are becoming a bold style statement in taking luxurious design to the next level.


DADO AFRICA has embraced this global trend with our DADOquartz freestanding baths, taking them outdoors and creating a tranquil oasis. Outdoor bathing makes the most of any garden or patio space, 5-star game lodges, resorts, day spas and hotel suites with a view –  offering you fresh air, natural scenery, sunlight and moonlight. The natural greenery and outdoor ambience showcase DADOquartz freestanding bathtubs as unique focal points, creating an exclusive outdoor sanctuary.

The primary consideration when installing an outdoor bathtub is whether it can withstand harsh natural elements. This is where DADOquartz has the edge and is perfectly positioned to offer an alfresco bathing alternative – whether you are in the middle of an urban setting or part of the great outdoors. 

If you are ready to combine your love for the outdoors with a luxury bathing experience, then here are 3 reasons why DADOquartz freestanding bathtubs are the perfect choice: 


#1 UV Resistant

Placing a freestanding bathtub outside as part of your bathroom design plan requires considering the material and whether it can withstand harsh sunlight and UV rays. Our DADOquartz bathtubs tick this box as they are resistant to UV rays, scratching, stains, and abrasion, allowing them to be exposed to outdoor elements and to the sun without discolouring.


#2 Non-Porous and Easy Maintenance

DADOquartz freestanding bathtubs are non-porous and free of hairline cracks, ensuring an easy to clean surface that is also resistant to micro-organisms and bacterial growth – perfect for the outdoors. Each of our modern bathtubs has no surface layer, is resistant to mildew growth and completely hygienic, making them easy to clean. (Even when it comes to possible bird droppings!)


#3 Extreme Tolerance for Extreme Outdoor Conditions

The craftsmanship of all DADOquartz freestanding bathtubs promises enduring quality – boasting a full-bodied, solid structure, through and through. No other internal reinforcements or outer layers are added or needed. This might sound technical, but the advantage of this for outdoors is that each bathtub has the strength to withstand harsh elements and outdoor conditions without losing its natural beauty and polished satin appearance. 

DADOquartz bathtubs are also warm to the touch and their heat insulation and retention properties ensure a ‘hot stone therapy’ experience, no matter the outdoor temperature. 

An outdoor space that has iconic city views, skyscrapers, a mountain range, a sea view or even an ivy-covered garden wall becomes the opportunity to create an outdoor bathing haven of relaxation and pure happiness.



DADO AFRICA’s range of freestanding baths and basins are proudly manufactured in South Africa from our own unique DADOquartz material.

DADOquartz freestanding baths are individually finished by hand for a truly smooth and refined finish, ensuring the most luxurious bathing experience. Boasting no veins, the matte or polished satin appearance gives DADOquartz its natural beauty.
