Breathing new life into the ancient tradition of Greek and Roman bath houses, Aire Ancient Baths is a singular spa experience in Chicago. The awe-inspiring space, which is built inside an old factory in River West, is like a hidden bunker designed for peaceful retreats. You can just explore the indoor and outdoor baths—ranging from frigid to hot and incorporating steam, salt and jets—or add on a relaxing massage. The spa also offers packaged experiences for one or two people such as the wine bath, where you’ll take advantage of the antioxidant properties of grapes with a 30-minute soak and cranial massage and an hour-long massage with grapeseed oil.
If you’re dealing with a lot of stress, you should take some time for yourself to relax and rejuvenate. That’s easy to do when you visit one of the best spas in Chicago, where you can have your knots of tension worked out through an intense massage, enjoy the ancient tradition of a soothing bath or try a CBD treatment meant to reduce pain and anxiety. There are kid-friendly treatments, ones tailored for pregnant women and options designed for men or couples if you’re looking for something romantic to do in Chicago. And if you're looking for a fancy Chicago staycation, you'll find some of the best spas in Chicago inside the city's finest luxury hotels.
