New York City has many well-known day spas and facilities that provide the trendiest and newest services for beauty. From a “vampire facial” to a mud bath or compression wrap, the little island of Manhattan has almost everything one could imagine for a day of beautifying, detoxing and relaxing. But the bigger battle might be not what service to get, but where to go for the best experience.
For ultimate relaxation and self-enhancement from the inside out, with a touch of luxury and enchantment, The Ancient Bath House in New York is a truly unique spa experience that delivers on all accounts.
There are candles lining every stair case and dim lighting from hanging lanterns. Tranquil music, plush robes, complimentary tea and water, and burning incense fill the place with a sense of calm. But while a lot of that might sound like an ordinary spa experience, it’s the six aromatherapy pools and relaxation services that make the Ancient Bath House in New York City unlike any other.
Baths of various temperatures are available for use in 90 minute intervals. A hot bath at 102 degrees is similar to a hot tub without the jets. A larger, warm bath (at 97 degrees) is similar to swimming in a bath tub. Colder pools from 57 degrees to 50 degrees are perfect for cooling off after these hotter experiences. There is also a salt water pool, that makes floating quite effortless and definitely relaxing. The steam room allows for a good sweat and detoxification. Together, each of these therapies offers a completely relaxing and rejuvenating experience.
Ninety minutes flies by in this luxurious resort-like spa. One might forget they are in the middle of the bustling and noisy Manhattan. Tucked away on a side street of TriBeCa, one might not even know that such a relaxing and rejuvenating retreat is right under their fingertips just steps away from a parking garage and a “dirty water” hotdog stand.
The services provided by Aire Ancient Baths are a perfect addition to the 90 minute bath time. Add on a half hour massage and create a complete two hour escape behind beaded curtains from the stresses and responsibilities called Life. Staff attendants are there to greet and direct from every phase of the appointment, and attend to your every need as you enjoy the facility. Spend a few dollars on yourself and it’s well worth it at Aire Ancient Bath House, especially in comparison to other day spas in Manhattan.
Whether it be to escape from the noise and commotion of New York City, to forget the responsibilities of a hectic work schedule, or to take a mental vacation for two hours, Aire Ancient Bath House in TriBeCa is an excellent choice. The full experience leaves one feeling like they just stepped off a plane from an exotic or tropical destination. Living and working in the fast pace of Manhattan, New Yorkers could really use the chance to slow down for a few hours at Aire Ancient Bath House.
