From vinotherapy to hydrotherapy, this spa offers an extensive list of treatments.
The luxe European public bath-style spa concept makes a splash at this elegant underground Tribeca space. Aire Ancient Baths provides a modern twist on the ancient hydrotherapy traditions of Greek, Roman and Ottoman soaking tubs with a selection of pools varying from icy cold to steaming hot that rev up your circulation when you take alternate dips. You can also rejuvenate your body and spirit in a salt pool, a propeller-jet bath, a steam room and a relaxation room with hot marble seating. Plus, sample a private massage or treat yourself to the Red Wine Ritual (starting at $564). It includes a soak in a tub full of red wine imported from Spain, a four-hand massage (read: two therapists!) using wine-infused oils and immersion in the inviting hydrotherapy pools. A must-hear musical experience takes place Tuesdays (7 to 9 p.m.) and Fridays (9 to 11 p.m.). Book a treatment and then enjoy a serenade by a complimentary acoustic Flamenco Roots concert, complete with a classical guitar and sufi flute.
