May 23, 2013 – Urban hustle and bustle will be but a faint memory once you step through the doorway of the Scandinave Les Bains Vieux-Montréal, a magnificent spa built in the thousand year-old European tradition, where peace and tranquility reign supreme. Here, in this haven nestled in the heart of Old Montréal, everything is designed to offer clients a much-appreciated – and well-deserved – escape. This multi-sensorial experience revolves around thermal therapy in three stages, beginning with body warming – hot hydro-jet bath with thermal waterfall, eucalyptus steam bath, or Finnish sauna – followed by a refreshing cool water rinse in a Nordic shower or a cold plunge, and finally, a period of extreme relaxation. To revitalize the body, cleanse the skin, reduce tension, and invigorate the spirit, there is nothing better!
A veritable urban paradise, the spa also offers relaxation areas that are ideal for quiet moments between treatments or before heading back to reality. Sit back, relax, and enjoy a home-made smoothie, lemon-filtered water, or herbal tea from Les Courants Juice Bar as you revel in your state of blissful tranquility.
And such an experience of profound wellbeing wouldn’t be complete without a therapeutic massage – Swedish, Swedish Exfoliation, Hot Stone, Deep Tissue – by one of the spa’s certified massotherapists.
Aside from its incredible treatments, the Scandinave is also remarkable for its interior design that incorporates water, daylight, wood, and rock in such a way as to play with the duality between hot and cold – more specifically the idea of cool glaciers and warm volcanic rock.
An outstanding fusion of modern design, innovative technology and environmentally-friendly practices, this creation by the architectural firm, Saucier + Perrotte Architectes, has received numerous accolades, the reason for which is evident as soon as you enter the building. Le Scandinave Les Bains Vieux-Montréal, pure pleasure for the senses.
