hot tub wiring question

Hey im prepping my platform deck for a hot tub, and im trying to determine best location to run the wire. just wondering if anyone knows what the code is/, I know it requires a shutoff/gfci outside the house, does that need to be more then 10 feet away from the tub? and can it be say 20 feet away?

also wih the flex cable coming from the shutoff to the tub, does this need to be buried? lets say it comes out the side of my house, and runs 15 feet to my tub, but that 15 feet is a deck, can the wire just be under the deck or tacked to the underside of the joists on that deck? also can the shutoff be under the deck (assuming its not obstructucted with lattice or does it need to be visible from the tub?

I can make a drawing if this makes no sense.
