To enjoy our facilities, you must make a reservation for a session. Our sessions start every hour, the first session being 8AM and the last being 9PM. 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 infused with eucalyptus aroma. We also have a relaxation area where you can rest on hot marble stones and where we offer tea and water. Someone will provide a brief tour of the facilities upon entering the bath area, but afterwards you may roam freely. If your reservation is for THERMAL BATHS + AROMATHERAPY, 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 THERMAL BATHS + AROMATHERAPY + RELAXING MASSAGE, all services will take place during the 2 hour block.
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 for the proper enjoyment of the experience.
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 have some special services designed as an experience for two. You will find all this information online or you can ask our booking department for details at 212 274 3777 or emailing email@example.com.

Aire Ancient Baths NY is located in 88 Franklin Street (between Church Street and Broadway) in the neighborhood of Tribeca. The building was originally a textile factory from 1883 that has been restored to its original structure. While you are enjoying the Aire experience you will also be able to admire the original exposed brick, wooden beams, columns of this unique space.
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 lenght and the session schedule. 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.
If you want to enhance your experience and spend additional time in the baths you can add extra 30 minutes in the baths for an additional $26 per person. You can add this when booking online or request it by email or by phone when booking.
Yes. The bath area is a large space (16,000 square feet) 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 buta round 10-15 people are allowed per hour and not all the guests will coincide in the baths at the same time. All sessions are co-ed.
We only ask that you bring a bathing suit, however we have bathing suits to borrow if you do not have one. Everything else is provided onsite: towels, robes, mandatory water shoes, toiletries (shampoo, conditioner, body wash, face wipes) as well as hair dryers and straightening irons, all of which are available in the locker rooms. The only thing you might want to bring if you use it is face moisturizer.
