Even if a spa says it’s all about ‘drifting away’, few places take it as far as this one: A refurbished ferry boat floating on the Saint-Lawrence River in the Old Port, Bota Bota’s one of the top-tier luxury spas in town that features five full decks of saunas, steam baths, whirlpools, showers and cold baths, body and facial treatments, and massage rooms. As you dip in and out of their waters and services, drop your anchor in one of their relaxation areas fitted with hammocks or grab a bite at their onboard restaurant. Don’t miss paying a visit when their event packages are available, which include guided Pilates or yoga classes, or movie nights on occasion.
Look no further than Montreal's spas for top-tier relaxation. The wide range of treatments available, from Turkish baths to Swedish massages, hydrotherapy circuits to acupuncture service, they’re a complete immersion in peaceful atmospheres that escape the sound and fury of daily life (read: the ultimate getaway). Paying a visit to any one of these institutions is a great way to disconnect anywhere from a few hours to a full day—not to mention one of the more romantic things to do in the city.
