A 6 person spa will weigh upwards of 5,000 pounds when filled with water and that's not counting people which could add another 1,000 pounds.  To calculate loads and properly size the lumber in your deck you will need an engineer or maybe a very experienced contractor.  In any case, you'll want to run your plans by the AHJ, who may have their own requirements for this deck.
