FAQ’s AIRE Ancient Baths New York

How does the AIRE Experience Work?

To enjoy our facilities, you must make a reservation for a session. During the session, you will have access to our signature bath experience that allows you to experience our 6 thermal baths (hot bath, the ice and cold plunges, the warm pool, the flotarium – salt water pool-, and the jet pool) as well as our steam room with aromatherapy. We also have a relaxation area where you can rest on hot marble stones and where we offer tea and water and you can also enjoy our salt exfoliation area during your visit. Our team will provide a brief tour of the facilities upon entering the bath area, but afterwards you may roam freely during the duration of the thermal bath experience. 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.

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 to respect the silence and tranquility of the space for the proper enjoyment of the experience.

Do you offer couples massage?

Any of our services can be done as a couple’s experience. You can book any of our experiences for two people and let our booking department know that you would like a couple’s massage. We also sometimes launch special services designed as an experience for two. You will find all this information online or you can ask our New York booking department for details at 646 878 6174 or emailing bookingnytribeca@beaire.com. You can also sign up for our newsletter or follow us in 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.

Will there be other people in Baths with me?

Yes. The bath area is a large space with different pools and massage 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 same session depends on booked services and not all the guests will coincide in the baths at the same time. All sessions are co-ed.

Massage preferences

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.

Experiences booked in the same session will usually be held in the same room. If you wish to have a separate room to your guests, please contact us in advance and we will try our best to accomdadate the request but cannot guarantee this as it is subject to availability on the day.
