FAQ’s AIRE Ancient Baths London

How does the AIRE Experience Work?

The London Ancient Bath Experience consists of a tour at your own pace through different 7 baths and temperatures: Tepidarium (36ºc), Caldarium (40°c), Frigidarium (14ºC and 10ºC); the Vaporium – steam room- scented with Peppermint, Balneum -the Thousand jet baths- and the Flotarium where you can float away. There is also a relaxation area with heated marble where you may rest and enjoy complimentary tea or water.

We have a thermal tour of 7 Baths at different temperatures, 1 steam room and 9 treatment rooms.    

Upon entering the bath area someone will provide you with a brief tour and afterwards you may roam freely. If your reservation is The Ancient Thermal Baths you may circulate throughout the baths, steam room and seating area at your leisure for the 90minutes of the 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 time of Thermal Bath Tour will be included whithin the total of duration of the experience you have choosen.

What happens if I arrive late?   

If you are delayed in arriving, you will be able to access the bath area, however your total experience may be shortened. If you have a massage or ritual included, it can be shortened depending on availability. Once you arrive everything will be more clear and our staff will inform and guide you.

Massage preferences

If you would prefer to have a female or male massage therapist or someone in specific, please let us know in advance so we can also make a note on your booking. Please note that we are unable to guarantee any request on that matter however, we will always endeavour to fulfil requests where possible. 

Let our therapist know if you would like more or less pressure during your massage but please note that the pressure ranges will be determined by your chosen experience. 

Although all our Experiences can be booked for two, we can only guarantee that the massage will be performed in the same room when you choose a Couples designed Experience. Likewise let us know your requirement in advance and we will do our best to accommodate. 

Are there massages for couples?

We offer a wide selection of experiences for two, perfect for sharing a unique moment. In addition, all our services can be booked as a couple experience, but we can only guarantee that the massage will be performed in the same room in the case of experiences created specifically for two. You can find all the information about AIRE Experiences on our website or by contacting our reservations departmen by email london@beaire.com.

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. 

I am pregnant, can I come and enjoy an AIRE experience?

Unfortunately, the AIRE Experiences aren't suitable for pregnant clients.

We hope you understand that our priority is to provide a relaxing experience for all who visit AIRE but the safety of our clients is of our utmost priority.

We would love to be able to pamper the soon-to-be mothers, however the high humidity of our space can impact the blood flow and heart rate of the guest which could be potentially harmful. In addition, our therapists do not receive any specific training and our facilities are unprepared to accomodate pregnant clients and it’s specific necessities.

Please be assured that we have consulted with a team of experts regarding this matter and have made the decision that there is a risk associated.

According to expert sources consulted, people who have given birth should not go in the water (bathing, swimming...) until normally 2 months or more after giving birth and always with medical approval (after that period). We therefore recommend you wait until you are ready. We look forward to welcoming you back to AIRE after this time for a unique and relaxing experience. Do not hesitate to contact us at london@beaire.com with the subject "Post Pregnant AIRE Experience" and we will make sure you have your moment of relaxation with a special benefit.

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.

Arrival Time 

To enhance the Aire Ancient Bath Experience, we encourage you to arrive 30 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment time. Upon arrival into the Aire Ancient Bath, you will be requested to complete a health questionnaire. This information will not be processed in any automated database.  

Please understand that late arrivals will result in the experience time being shortened accordingly.
