If you need to unwind and chillax after a roundabout, this floating urban spa is a perfect spot to enjoy some hot tubs and cool waters. Designed by Sid Lee architecture, one of Montreal’s famous agencies, the interior is quite charming and well thought of. The main feature is the location; very easy to get to, it’s in the heart of the old port. Bota Bota is actually a historical ferry boat converted into a center of well-being. It’s parked in a canal on the St-Lawrence river. With a view of the old town, it makes the experience quite special.
With many decks on various levels, they offer massages, facial and body treatments, wine, food, and more. I just like to go for a dip in the sun deck’s hot pool after a steam bath. They also have a garden with all sorts of baths and long chairs, a very nice option if it’s a sunny day. As usual, silence everywhere is the rule on the boat but low voices discussions are allowed in the gardens.
