I am getting reedy to build a 24 x 20 sun room which i plan to install a hot tub in it and was wandering what would be good to put on the walls. The room will not have heat in it

Yup, that would be a good product for that application.

Also to have it really cool don't stain it or anything. Let it weather in there naturally. It will have a ton of color in it along with a little graying. Maybe finish it if you are leaving it half open to the elements.

make sure you ask some structural engineer whether your house/building can support the weight of the tub

I would think that you should build the entire structure from cedar, to cope with the ultra high humidity that the tub will create.

There are many products with plastic, melamine, or embossed aluminum bonded to a sheet good, but I agree that cedar or redwood lap siding will provide the best ambience for such a room.

I'd use stainless nails so you don't end up with little black splotches everywhere in a couple of years.

Also would install a quality, commercial duty exhaust vent wired to a humidistat. There is going to be an awful lot of humidity/conndendation created in the room when the tub is uncovered and in use.
