The underground sanctuary at Aire Ancient Baths in the Born is one of the city’s most relaxing spaces. Flickering candles light the way; for the length of your 90-minute session, time ceases to exist. Don’t be surprised if one of the black-clad attendants has to wake you from your steam-induced stupor to send you on your way – you won’t be the only one.

If you can, opt for a weekday morning, when you’re likely to have the pools (cold, warm, hot, jetted and saltwater) and steam room mostly to yourself. Combine a basic session with a treatment or two (the massages and scrubs are excellent) and staff may even let you linger until a new round of spa-goers appear. 

Before you head back to reality via the brightly lit locker rooms, take a moment to hydrate on the hot stone lounging areas with bottomless, fruit-infused water and sweet Moroccan mint tea.
