Heaven on Water at Bota Bota, spa-sur-l'eau & Auberge sur la Route - Montreal

I recently discovered heaven on water in Montreal.  If you want some real R&R and little bit of nosh then make your way to Bota Bota, spa-sur-l'eau.  Floating comfortably on the St. Lawrence River in the Old Port of Montreal, this world's first spa-on-a-boat creates another world for you to escape.

This 25,000 square feet, 1950s steel liner has five decks for you to experience:

  • Sundeck - sauna, pool & hot tub with beautiful views
  • Bridge Walk - sauna, steam room & hot tub
  • Intermediate Bridge - Media room, cool ship windows for lounging & yoga area
  • Main Deck - treatment rooms, restaurant & Bota Chic
  • Cale - former engine room is now the locker room.

I was planning on eating somewhere nearby Old Montreal because I did not have high expectations for spa food.  I was so wrong!  The Restaurant Bota Bota is operated by Auberge sur la Route and is phenomenal.  I guess it should be with Michelin starred chef Eric Gonzalez.  This was the perfect compliment to all of my pampering.  

I can not wait to go back to my little piece of heaven on water!

    I like for making my own siphon off van from a area of hose attached onto a duration of 3/four? Pace tube with an MTA suitable on the cease. It’s simple and fast to take it out, primary it up, fall the hose, and apply it to vacation up resolution and little waste.

  2. This reminds me of a spa in Manhattan that I went to once - except it definitely wasn't on a boat! This sounds so neat. I'll definitely have to check it out one day if I ever happen to be in Montreal.
