Aire Ancient Baths opens doors to first UK site at London's Covent Garden

Aire Ancient Baths has opened its first UK property in the heart of the country's capital city, London.

Inspired by the tradition of bathing in ancient Greek, Roman and Ottoman civilisations, Aire Ancient Baths London reimagines the classic tradition of the thermal baths in a contemporary fashion.

Located on Robert Street, The London Ancient Bath Experience consists of seven different bathing experiences of varying temperatures – including a tepidarium (36ºc), caldarium (40°c) and a frigidarium (14ºC and 10ºC).

There is also a vaporium – a steamroom scented with peppermint – a balneum (the "thousand jet baths") and a flotarium, as well as a relaxation area with heated marble where you may rest and enjoy complimentary tea or water.

In addition to the bathing experiences, the baths house nine large treatment rooms, suitable for either single person or couple's massages.

Visits to the baths are sold in packages which consist of a 90-minute free roam of the baths with the option of treatments afterwards.

"Upon entering the bath, guests will be provided with a brief tour and afterwards they may roam freely," a spokesperson for Aire Ancient Baths said.

"If their reservation is for the Ancient Thermal Bath experience they may circulate through the baths, steamroom and relaxation area at their leisure for the 90-minute duration of the session.

"If they're scheduled for any other experience that combines the Ancient Thermal Baths with a massage or a body ritual, the treatment time will be added to the free roam.

"Our longest experiences last three hours and include a 90-minute body treatment, combined with the 90-minute Ancient Thermal Bath experience."

Aire is a worldwide collection of thermal baths inspired by antiquity. The concept was launched in Spain in the early 2000s and has since expanded to the US, Denmark and now the UK.

Most of the sites are located in restored historical buildings.

These include a restored 19th-century warehouse next to El Born market in Barcelona, Spain; a rural farmhouse that dates back to 1467 in Vallromanes, Spain; and a property in the heart of New York City (TriBeCa) which was a former textile factory.

The London opening is set to be followed by an Aire Ancient Baths in Toronto in 2022.
