Aire de Barcelona will wow you, and not only because of the variety and quality of its services. As soon as you enter its facilities, the architecture and decoration will make you feel like you’ve been teleported to medieval times, disconnecting you completely from the outside world – whatever tensions and worries you had, they will immediately be gone. Relax, choose one of the treatments available, maybe ask for a cup of Aire’s famous Arabic tea? It’s all about yourself and your wellbeing.

The treatments

Thermal Bath with Aromatherapy – During 90 minutes, go through a circuit of climatised bathing rooms set at different temperatures, including periods at relaxation rooms. Finish with the Hammam, a traditional Arab bath with essential oils, followed by a warm salt bath where you’ll float in the water as if lying on the clouds. To this treatment, you can add a 15, 30 or 90-minute massage, or even a very special hot stone massage.

Andalusian Ritual – Exfoliation on hot marble, using either soap and a kessa glove or a gentle cream, topped with an aromatic moisturizing massage.

Aire Organic Ritual – A bath circuit based on organic ingredients. It includes a jet stream bath, steam baths and salt baths. As if this wasn’t heavenly enough, a one-hour body and face massage follows, before you’re served a wonderful natural fruit juice cocktail and sent out to the world a changed person – after all, not everyone gets to go to heaven and come back to earth.
