- BOTA – SPA SUR L’EAU (SPA ON WATER) – Photo by Steve Troletti
On a recent visit to the Old Port of Montreal I spotted something new and unique out by the Old Silo No. 5. A large floating Boat-House named BOTA SPA SUR L’EAU (SPA ON WATER). Although SPAs are not my thing, I was genuinely intrigued by this floating SPA. A quick visit to the Internet site, http://www.botabota.ca/ reveals a top notch SPA with a luxury decor.
The original structure had been in use since the 50s as a ferryboat between Sorel and Berthier, and then a showboat on the Richelieu River. It’s since been rebuilt from the ground up into a five story Luxury SPA and set in operation in 2010. BOTA offers all the services from Massages to body treatments in a uniquely Luxurious settings. If you’re visiting Montreal and you’re into the SPA experience, I highly suggest you skip the traditional Hotel SPAs and take advantage of this unique SPA experience.
