The experience of ancient Greek and Roman baths in NYC is just a few blocks from you! Aire Ancient Baths is one of the top get-aways in the city.
Located inside an old weaving factory in TriBeCa, Aire Ancient Baths is an experience you’ll never forget! Most likely, you’ll get addicted to it!
As we’ve all studied in History class, in ancient Greece and Rome, fancy banquets were organized for special guests with sessions to thermal baths. These public thermal baths were hosted inside beautiful palaces and were considered special rituals.
Aire Ancient Baths offers a variety of water induced relaxation sessions ranging from the hottest water at 102ºF, to the super cold water pools that can go down below 46ºF. Definitely, for the brave!
There are also steaming rooms that are intensified by aromatherapy and propeller jet baths at 97ºF for pre massage sessions.
Plus, salt water pools at 100ºF that is one of the most sought after baths because of its ability to induce mental relaxation, and much more!
We love their newest treatment called Red Wine Baths. We all know that grapes are huge antioxidants.
Extracted from the Matarromera winery in Spain, the treatment starts with 30 minutes inside a tub with tempranillo grapes concentrates. While in the tub, you’ll receive a scalp massage, as well as a facial massage. The best!
Then, you’ll head to a full body massage with grape seed oil that will do wonders for your body regarding hydration.
And wait! It’s still not over! You will still indulge yourself into another 90-minute Thermal Session in their different baths.
This experience lasts 180 minutes. Have fun!!!
