Bota Bota spa-sur-l’eau

Montreal, Que.

The St. Lawrence River is home to this floating spa, steps away from Old Montreal. Popular but exceedingly quiet, the Nordic-style water circuit includes saunas with a view of the river, steam baths, a large outdoor whirlpool and a cold tub — try your best not to yell as you plunge in. Wind down with a quick rest in one of the hammocks before indulging in a massage from an efficient and practised team.
Top tip: Don’t leave without strolling over a little bridge to the large pool back on land for a glass of bubbly or two.
