The Bas Laurentiens have long since learned the benefits of water.

To relax or recharge your batteries, three magnificent spas are available during the cold season.

Follow me on a relaxing tour, an unforgettable cocooning retreat.

UniversSpa Nordik, resolutely urban

The softly falling snow disappears as you soak in the warm water. Welcome to UniversSpa Nordik at Hôtel Universel in Rivière-du-Loup. Outside, its two hot whirlpool pools and one cold pool let you make the most of thermotherapy, a treatment that harnesses the benefits of alternating hot and cold. 

There are two relaxation areas with fireplaces, a Finnish sauna and a wet eucalyptus sauna (Hammam). A full range of treatments is available. Complete your experience in the large tea room, inspired by a huge frame of the river where the clouds waltz.

Before retiring to the cozy comfort of one of our 300 rooms or suites, visit the new Boréal Univers gourmand restaurant with its varied, affordable menu in an atmosphere that's sure to give you a taste of the Bas-Saint-Laurent.

L'Estuaire : A sanctuary of serenity

The part of the river in front of Rivière-du-Loup is called the estuary. It's a mix of fresh and salt water that creates a unique ecosystem. Hôtel Levesque's l'Estuaire health center also offers the best of both worlds, including a view of the river.

At l'Estuaire, every detail exudes relaxation. As soon as you walk through the doors, the atmosphere changes, time slows down and a gentle serenity embraces you.

Inside, in the large central whirlpool, jets provide your body with what it needs to start afresh. Hammam, dry sauna, tea room with loungers and soft music - everything is designed to help you clear your mind, including the view of the river. As an added bonus, you can continue your relaxation on the outdoor terrace, wrapped up warmly around the fireplace. 

Hôtel Levesque offers two restaurants: 171, with its relaxed atmosphere, and La Griffe, with its regional cuisine. In your room, you'll sleep like a baby. The next day, enjoy the Starbuck's café near reception.

Noah Spa : an "eaunergic" experience

At Rimouski's Noah Spa, an "eaunergic" experience awaits you. In a tropical setting, Noah Spa offers a course of 10 jet stations, each designed to massage a different part of the body.

From the neck fountain to the lumbar jets, from the arms to the feet, via the relaxation bed and the walking corridor, you direct the jets for a massage that provides immediate well-being and relief from muscular tension. This "eaunergic" pool is exclusive to Rimouski, and available only at Noah Spa.

This experience complements the relaxation lounge and dry sauna with a direct view of the river, just a stone's throw away. A Hammam and outdoor pools complete the experience.  

Noah Spa is part of the Le Navigateur hotel complex, which offers a variety of cozy rooms and studios. A Pacini restaurant is attached.

In winter, Bas-Saint-Laurent spas are sanctuaries of serenity.

Enjoy an affordable relaxation tour in the gentle winter magic of the Bas-Saint-Laurent.
