It’s like stepping back in time to an ancient elegant Roman bath. Β The atmosphere is relaxing, romantic and rejuvenating. Unfortunately for us all the massage and spa services were already booked so we enjoyed the thermal baths instead for our 2 hour time slot. They handed us a robe, a towel and water slippers (must be work at all times) and we set off on our journey of discovery.

As soon as you descend into the rare treasure it is a sight for the senses. 😍 Hundreds of candles all over πŸ•―πŸ•―πŸ•―πŸ•―πŸ•―πŸ•―, rustic brick walls, beautifully glowing pools and Flamenco music by live guitarists🎻🎻. After they gave us a whispered tour around Β we started off in the salt water bath. We slathered our hands in salt, applied a salt scrub to our limbs and then submerged our bodies only to pop right back up! You literally could lay thereΒ floating and enjoying the 97 degree temperature♨️. We then tried the various other temperature pools, I opted not to shock my body in the 50 degrees oprion.β„οΈβŒ The 2 hour window was more then enough time to relax and unwind before we headed back to the locker room. They provided basically everything you needed- hair products, disposable brushes, deodorant etc…the attendant even took our bathing suits and put them in a drying machine for us!!! πŸ‘™πŸ’¨

Here are some trip advisor reviews:

From their website here is their description “The Aire Group was born 15 years ago in Seville. It was the result of the dream of a group of investors and friends who decided to recuperate the ancient Greek and Roman bath tradition and revive this concept in restored historic buildings. AIRE creates spaces and experiences to relax the body and mind according to ancient traditions of water with temperature contrasts as elements of relaxation and health.They have locations in Seville, Barcelona and Almeria. The last center is in New York, a textile factory in TriBeCa, Manhattan. This building built in 1883 opened its doors in 2012 to Aire Ancient Baths New York. Each AIRE is unique, located in an old building full of history and personality, but all of them share the quest to create a space for relaxation, full of calm and serenity in an experience for the senses.” Here are some pics from their site…
