best way to install bubble tub?

whats the best way to install bubble tub?
first move the tub into the spot and then build the walls then install plumbing?

or build the walls and drop the tub into place?

oh yay the tub we got was some bain ultra Thermal Oval
my wife would like to tile around it. would it be better to have tile under the sides or have the tile but into the sides?

any info/help would be great

I can tell you one thing - tiling to the sides of the tub is a !
Tile the deck and drop the tub in, make sure you caulk it well so the water won't get under, a little sealer and you're good to go. It also takes a lot less precision and will give you a nice line around the tub.
If you put the tub in first and then cut tile to it, especially if the tub is round, you will never get it to fit perfectly.
Now if there is no tub deck, thus you're just tiling walls down to the tub, then you have to install tub first and tile later.
