This sounds like lyrics from a famous James Brown song:

Hot tub!
Get into the Hot Tub!
Hah!
Gotta Gotta Gotta get into the Hot Tub!@
Hah!
Get Down!
Outlets!
Gotta have an Outlet!
Good Gawd!
Outlets!
GFCI!
Gotta Gotta Gotta Gotta Have It!
GFCI My oh My
Hot Tub@@@
Gotta Have It

There are a variety of rules that apply to hot tubs and their associated wiring. We cannot simply answer your question as it is too vague.

Is there a question here? How far are the receptacles from the edge of the tub? They may not be allowed there.

If the receptacles are outside they should have GFI protection.
