While staying at the InterContinental Montréal, begin your day at Osco! Restaurant with a delicious Provencal style breakfast buffet. The hotel is ideally located, at the gateway of downtown and Old-Montreal, only a few blocks away from Bota Bota, your next destination. Anchored in the Old Port of Montreal, this floating spa offers its passengers the healing benefits of a spa while being lulled by the natural movements of the St Lawrence River. For a few hours, you will enjoy the various spa installations with Old Montreal as a magical backdrop: two saunas with incredible views onto the river and the city, a eucalyptus steam bath, outdoor whirlpool baths, cold showers and baths, as well as relaxation areas. Then you will delight your taste buds at the Bota Bota, spa-sur-l’eau restaurant, with a glass of wine and a fresh and simple 3-course meal, both original and comforting, for a serene healing of body and mind.
Upon your return at the InterContinental Montréal, you will discover the ritual of absinthe in the Green Fairy Alcoves and enjoy a variety of flavorful Provencal hors-d’oeuvres. Absinthe, an herb-based spirit containing 55 to 75% alcohol, is renowned for enhancing the creative energies of the great 19th century European writers and artists. Dubbed the green fairy, it is served at the green hour and it still captures the creative imagination with its legend for mind-altering effects.
After this experience, you will join Chef Matthieu Saunier in La Bastide, the Provencal kitchen, for a private cooking class. You will create one of the Chef’s specialty dishes, risotto, using fresh Quebec products enhanced with Provencal flavors. Of course, the tasting of this delicious meal will be accompanied by a glass of wine from our eclectic cellar offering privately imported wines, as well as, wines from organic and biodynamic vineyards.
