Relaxation | A day at Bota Bota | MTL – Relaxing nest in the heart of Old-Montreal. Definitely a go-to in summer and winter.
I am not gonna lie. I love pampering myself. I love massages, I love spa, I love everything related to relaxation. Going to spas have been an activity we share with my husband: it’s a great way to spend time together while relaxing.
Since we’ve been reunited a few weeks ago, we’ve been busy settling our home and careers. Let me tell you this spa day was much needed, especially because it was happening for our anniversary!
The experience at Bota Bota met all our expectations. I’ll share with you why I loved the place and I hope you’ll get lucky enough to enjoy the experience too.
A day at Bota Bota – The place
I can deny how cool it is to access such a beautiful place in the heart of the city you live in. Bota Bota is located in the old Montreal and very easily accessible.
The complex is located on the boat but you also have the gardens with separated pools. I didn’t realize how big it was until getting a full tour of the propriety.
On most decks, you have jacuzzis, baths, and saunas or steam rooms. We went on a Sunday and it was crazy busy. We even thought about getting a sauna at home and started reading reviews about them online, it’s always worth reading these reviews on saunas, it helps when you’re trying to daydream about getting a sauna. I was happily surprise of how clean it was because the agents on board make sure everything stays fresh and clean.
The views from everywhere on the boat are breathtaking and so peaceful. It really adds a lot to the experience of relaxation.
A day at Bota Bota – The experience
After changing in the locker room, we started by a full tour of the boat. We really enjoyed the total silence and tranquility on board. Silence is asked everywhere except the gardens.
Each saunas has a different essential oils fragrance and as a big fan of plants, I loved the diversity we could experience!
On one of the deck, we enjoyed the whirlpool for a while. The sun was shinning and the view was gorgeous.
Can I mention that Bota Bota is so photogenic?! With all the different rooms and decks, you can take so many cool pictures!
Finally, we ended up our day with a massage. Couldn’t expect anything better. My massage therapist made sure to listen to all my issues to give me the best massage possible. And it was incredible.
We left the day relaxed, and energized to start the week on the right foot.
If you have one afternoon to spend somewhere, try Bota Bota. You can just enjoy the pools and decks but if you’re able to, definitely book a massage! It felt amazing to disconnect from the city just for a few hours.
Thank you Bota-Bota for having us!
