Between friends

Friendly relaxation

Your week at work promises to be busy, and your friends have an equally filled life. You can never quite seem to find the time to meet up, yet you would also like to take time to rest. To everybody’s excitement, meeting at Bota Bota is the perfect activity to combine these two needs, to everybody’s excitement, in a calm environment, for a moment of well deserved relaxation. That is the reason why the gardens are a place dedicated to those who wish to speak, in hushed tones, to each other. The rest of the boat is a place where silence is king. Let the landscape do the talking.

Enjoy thermotherapy

Step 1 : Heat

[10 to 20 minutes] The thermal experience starts off in the heat. Contrary to popular beliefs, the water circuit does not start in the hot baths, but rather in the dry sauna or the steam bath. With it’s analgesic properties, the dry sauna helps muscles relax all while relieving muscular pains. Let yourself be enveloped by the heat and evacuate your toxins in a completely natural way. This first step will not only benefit your body but also your mind. The worries of everyday life will evaporate little by little, as small droplets escape from your pores

Step 2 : Cold

[15 to 60 seconds] The second stage of the thermal experience consists of a short dip in the cold bath. If it is too cold for your liking, the showers are also an excellent way to get through this step. For those of you who dread the cold: this stop is the shortest on the list but also the most beneficial to the body. It is a step not to be missed: it accelerates the heartbeat and tightens the pores of the skin. Combined with some heat, the cold not only stimulates senses, but it also promotes the production of white blood cells, relieves aches, all while increasing the production of well-deserved endorphins. Not so bad after all, right?

Step 3 : Relaxation

[20 minutes] The third stage of the water circuit takes place in the relaxation areas. Try them all or pick your favorite from the sun loungers, beanbags or hammocks. From hot to cold, your body has already been through a lot. It is now time to stabilize your heart rate in a quiet and peaceful environment.
