Bota Bota is a wonderful spa experience. You get to relax in the hot tub, OUTDOORS at te waterfront. They also have multiple tubs on multiple levels, rather than one large pool, so it's easier to get a more private experience.More

Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the

I’d say contact the spa direct as we didn’t book any treatments and only used facilities like steam rooms, saunas and pools. Wasn’t too busy when we went this week though it was an evening session

Well, you can show up and go no reservation needed, but this is a popular amenity I suggest you reserve in advance, you won't be disappointed. But if you want to go and see the place first that will be fine. Enjoy and relax.
