Let your cares drift away at one of these unique pampering spots
CANADA - Bota Bota, Montreal
This upscale spa on the Lawrence River was once a former ferry boat and is now a haven of hydrotherapy treats designed to destress and refresh its guests. Within the three storey spa you’ll find a heated swimming pool, ice bath and a Swedish sauna with a picture box view of the city. You also have a dozen or so massages that you can choose from including a Bamboo Massage, a Shell Massage, and the Bota Bota Live Massage where your masseur’s strokes are in time to the music of a live harpist. Stop for a bite to eat at the Traverse restaurant and enjoy a charcuterie platter whilst you ponder over your choice.
INDIA - Jiva Spa Boat, Taj Lake Palace
No surprise that a former palace in Udaipur, Rajasthan knows how to give you the royal treatment. Book a treatment on the Jiva Spa Boat that will take you on a spa journey with a difference. Board the boat on Lake Pichola, then choose from a host of decadent treatments – including massages, scrubs and wraps, before you soak in the Soak in the rose petal-covered pool that’s on the deck.
UK - The Floating Spa, Monkey Island Estate
Monkey Island near Bray is now home to one of London’s most unique retreats – the Floating Spa. Set in a vintage barge that’s moored on the Thames, the only sounds that will break the silence are the lapping of waves against the shore or the tweeting of birds from their nests in the trees. So lie back, relax and let your therapist spoil you with a host of pampering treatments.
