If you dare for your spa experience to be different, Bota Bota is your place. Situated on the old port of Montreal, you have to walk the plank—literally—to get to the boat for your spa bliss. Not only can you get regular treatments, you can experience their “water circuit.” It’s not as traditional as a hammam but you can pop into the sauna, dunk yourself in freezing tub and then go out onto the deck on one of two jacuzzis. Even in the winter, the jacuzzis are on deck and heated (even the floor on the outdoor deck is heated). It’s quite the experience!
There are so many lounge chairs and really cool hanging hammocks to chill out in your robe and read or sleep. The port holes have also been reconfigured as a place to hang out and relax. Not only do you get a different vantage of the Old Port from the water, you are right in viewpoint of housing project, Habitat 67.
For an overall fun experience and great nap time spot, this is place is a scene.
