Strom Spa officially opened in 2009 just minutes from downtown Montreal and I was thrilled when I was invited to review it. I chose a sunday evening for my thermal experience. It was a cool crisp night so I steered clear of the cool baths. I was ready to go for the complete experience from top to bottom but by the time I exited the hot bath and was on transit to the cool one, I lost my will power. I convinced myself that standing outside getting cold was the same thing as diving into the cool water and somehow the benefits are the same. I was later told thats ridiculous.
Needless to say I thoroughly enjoyed the hot baths, the sauna, the smoking hot eucalyptus steam room and just simply relaxing and putting my feet up by the fire.
The architecture and layout of this place is modern and will blow your mind. The facilities include, outdoor whirlpools, thermal and Nordic baths, Finnish saunas, eucalyptus steam bath, thermal and Nordic waterfalls, indoor and outdoor relaxation areas with fireplaces.
Theres also an event coming up called “nights under the stars” where the spa stays open from 11pm-3am. There’s a DJ, tasty martinis and h’orderves. I think this is when I will be planning my next visit.
