Despite all of its luxe oil and massage offerings, patrons continue to gravitate towards Aire?s Turkish hammam, a multi-faceted (and ultra-soothing) ancient ritual.  First, you heat up slowly by dipping into the spa?s steam and hot pools, then alternate by stepping into the cold plunge?this boosts your body?s circulation and brings blood to your capillaries, a health-minded side effect.  Aire?s cultured variety of treatments allows you to explore the world?s many traditions without ever leaving the heart of NYC.

 

If you want to recreate the Aire experience at home, L-atitude stocks a bevy of Istanbul-sourced wares perfectly suited to round-the-clock relaxation.  For the bath, fill the Hamam Bowl from Imports of Marrakesh with soothing bath oil or soap from Haremlique; apr?s bath, dry yourself with one of our authentic Turkish towels from the Grand Bazaar. For everyday comfort, this Simple Life Navy Cotton Peshtemal Bathrobe is our top choice?washed with pure olive oil soap, its full, rich scent is the ultimate morning pick-me-up.
