We all need an escape from the city every now and then, but flying off to the Amalfi Coast or the Dead Sea isn’t a fiscally responsible way to get some rest and relaxation.Spain-based spa operator Aire Ancient Baths has transported its business to TriBeCa’s Franklin Street, offering New Yorkers a truly unique way to unwind in a thermal bath.
The company offers two hours packages in its propeller-jet baths, steam room, salt water pool, thermal sessions, and relaxation rooms. There’s also massage rooms to complete the spa experience. You’ll feel like a Roman emperor at the end of your stay.
The basic rate for just a thermal bath is $75 for two hours, but add in a 60-minute, four-handed massage and the price hikes to $210. There are also red wine rituals, keral, cava, and olive oil rituals that run around the $500 mark.
Upon arriving, all guests receive a wristband that notes the type of treatment they are receiving. It's also a locker key.
Upon acquiring the space, Aire stripped the walls of the concrete to expose the brick and found the columns that naturally existed in the building.
While inside, a bathing suit or bikini must be worn. And long hair must be pulled back, though no bathing cap is required.
