Bota Bota, spa-sur-l’eau, its history, its singularity

Bota Bota began its life on the water as a ferryboat named The Arthur Cardin, sailing between Sorel and Berthier, Quebec, in the 50’s and 60’s. This was followed by a stint as a Richelieu River show boat named L’Escale in 1967, with decades of shows featuring the likes of Ginette Reno. The Emond Family acquired the ship in 2008 with the crazy idea of transforming it into a spa. The family entrusted the ambitious project to Jean Pelland of Sid Lee Architecture, and once transformed, Bota Bota, spa-sur-l’eau officially opened its doors in Old Montreal in December 2010. The boat consists of five decks which house the various spa installations: two saunas with incredible views onto the river and the Old Port, two eucalyptus steam baths, three outdoor whirlpool baths, four cold showers and baths, relaxation areas, a restaurant, terraces and a garden. Over and above its breathtaking Montreal location, this unique spa offers prolonged well-being through massage therapy, body treatments, facial treatments as well as manicures and pedicures.
