Bota Bota, spa-sur-l’eau is anchored at the Quays of the Old Port of Montreal and easily accessible by Bixi and public transit. Surrounded by a unique decor, this atypical floating spa offers proximity to the St Lawrence River. When you come aboard, you feel the natural lulling movements of the river.
Relaxing at spa is one of our favorite activity for all the healing benefits that it brings to the body such as improving circulation and releasing stress. When combined with healthy lifestyle habits, spa makes a positive difference over the time.
Bota Bota consists of five decks which include: two saunas with incredible views onto the river, three outdoor whirlpool baths, two eucalyptus steam baths, four cold showers and baths, resting areas, a restaurant, terraces and a garden.
