How does the AIRE Experience Work?
To enjoy our facilities, you must first make a reservation for a session online or by calling our booking center. Our sessions start every hour, the first session beginning at 9AM and the last session beginning at 9PM. During the session, you will have access to our signature Ancient Thermal Bath experience that allows you to experience our 6 thermal baths (hot bath, ice bath and cold plunges, warm bath, salt bath, and jet bath) as well as our steam rooms at different steam intensity with aromatherapy. You can also enjoy our indoor/outdoor bath that allows you to swim outside and the temperature of the bath will adjust depending on the season. You can also enjoy our salt exfoliation area. We also have a relaxation area where you can rest on heated marble and enjoy tea and water. Upon entering the bath area someone will provide you with a brief tour and afterwards you may roam freely. If your reservation is for the Ancient Thermal Bath experience you may circulate through the baths, steam room and relaxation area at your leisure for the 90 minute duration of the session. If you are scheduled for any other experience that combines the Ancient Thermal Baths with a Massage or a Body Ritual, your Ancient Thermal Bath experience will add to the body ritual or treatment time. Our longest experiences is 3 hours and includes a 9 0minute body treatment combined with the 90 minute Ancient Thermal Bath experience.
The AIRE experience is designed as a relaxing space in which cellphones and cameras are not allowed and we also ask you to keep your voices low for the proper enjoyment of all guests during the experience.
Do you offer couples massage?
All of our services can be done as a couple’s experiences. You can book any of our experiences for two people and let our booking team know that you would like a couple’s massage. We occasionally launch special services designed as an experience for two. You will find all this information online or you can ask our Chicago booking team for details at 312 945 7414 or by emailing email@example.com. You can also sign up for our newsletter or follow us on social media to be updated on any specials we launch.
When will my massage take place?
If you have booked a massage it will most likely happen during the second hour of your session. Usually we have guests first enjoy the bath experience and then have their massages, but the staff who checks you in upon arrival to the bath area will be able to specify better depending on your massage length and the session schedule. If you would prefer to have a female or male massage therapist, please let us know in advance so we can also make note of that. We try our best to accommodate all requests, but please note we offer NO GUARANTEES as the schedule is created based on massage therapists’ availability and booked services.
Will there be other people in Baths with me?
Yes, the bath area is a large space with different baths and treament areas. We limit our experiences per session to ensure the privacy and tranquility of the experience. The number of people that will be allowed in one single session depends on booked services and not all guests will coincide in the baths at the same time. All sessions are co-ed.
What do I need to bring?
We kindly ask that you bring a bathing suit, however we have bathing suits to borrow if you do not have one. Everything else is provided onsite: towels, robes, mandatory water shoes, toiletries (shampoo, conditioner, body wash, face wipes) as well as hair dryers and straightening irons, all of which are available in the locker rooms. The only thing you might want to bring is facial skincare.
Is the experience co-ed?
Yes, both men and women enjoy the bath area together and receive treatments in the same area.
