NYC may be a city that works hard, but it’s also a city that takes their relaxation pretty seriously. The Aire Ancient Baths spa in the Tribeca area in particular is dedicated to their craft and the proof is in their utterly lavish Red Wine Ritual. Did you think that means you get to sip on a glass of red while you enjoy a massage? You must be new here. What it actually means is that you get to soak in a wine bath in a private thermal tub. That’s right, a wine bath! Cleopatra can take a hike.
The treatment begins with a 30 minute wine bath that uses a concentrate of tempranillo grapes from the Matarromera winery in Spain. After this you get to enjoy the benefits of a 90-minute four-handed body massage that uses a Toning Grape Seed body exfoliant made of Verdejo Grape Seeds, Brown sugar and grape oil. The experience wraps up (quite literally) with a Grape Seed Detox-Relax body wrap. This is an antioxidant treatment featuring red grape seed, aloe vera and ginseng.
The ritual claims to offer hydration, eliminate impurities and remove dead cells from the skin leaving it nourished, hydrated, luminous and soft. This is probably the closest you’ll ever come to that wine bath that you’ve been dreaming of! Learn more about the spa and the treatments it offers here:
