Why locals love it

Leave your worries at the dock as you step onto this floating spa. You’ll find panoramic views of the city while you drift on the St. Lawrence River (Bota Bota does not actually set sail, but is permanently anchored at the port’s quays). The multi-level boat-turned-spa is quite a sight as it is made up of modern decor with various decks and rooms.

Why you should visit it

Their popular water circuit includes access to the steam bath, cold bath, sauna, Hammam steam room, and lounging areas. They also offer facials, massages, body treatments, manis & pedis, and are equipped with a yoga/Pilates studio. Satisfy your post-relaxation appetite at the in-house bistro by chef Éric Gonzalez of L’Auberge Saint-Gabriel.

Special tip

The “Tuesdays for Two” special gives you and a friend access to the water circuit for just $60, while certain evenings after 7pm range from $35-$45.

Best spa in Montreal...I've been going for 10 years now, it's just the best view and the facilities are good.

Love the sauna experience. Invigorating! Stimulating and of course, very, deeply relaxing. A spectacular view of the Old Port. A very good aspect of this spa is that you do not need a reservation or a credit card. They accept walk-ins and cash. Very nice spa on multiple floors.

It had a wonderful atmosphere. Very relaxing! The hot/cold circuit was refreshing and I definitely recommend the dry sauna.
