Aire Ancient Baths Makes a Splash in TriBeCa

Aire Ancient Baths Opens in TriBeCa

We get it. You need to relax. Why not indulge in a hot bath? But don’t fill up the tub just yet…

Head to Aire Ancient Baths, a luxurious, subterranean water oasis now open in TriBeCa. (Franklin Street marks the spa’s fourth location, the first opened up inside a sixteenth century palace in Seville back in 2004.)

Aire’s concept is simple: restore ancient Greek, Roman, and Ottoman bathing traditions in a gorgeous, spa-meets-bathhouse kind of setting. And by spa-meets-bathhouse, we mean a glowing, candle-lit, 16,000 square foot space surrounded by exposed brick, pristine pools, and a relaxation room equipped with hot marble stones imported from Spain.

Services start at $75 for a two-hour session. Simply change into your swimsuit, grab a pair of slippers, and help yourself to a dip in several pools: ice (46 degrees), cold (61 degrees), warm (97 degrees), hot (102 degrees), salt water, and a propeller jet bath (97 degrees).  Also feel free to visit the glass-enclosed hammam (steam room) and sip tea or juice in the relaxation room.

If you really need to unwind, add a massage (starting at $95 for 15 minutes up to $210 for a four-handed—yes, four-handed—treatment). While the spot only allows 20 bathers at a time, private “rituals” are available for one to two people (can you say couples retreat?). Each ritual is three and a half hours and includes a facial, massage, and some bubbly. Sign up here.—AMANDA LIBBY
