Hey look, the Out NYC has finally put the finishing touches on its Fire Island-themed, glass-roofed Revive Spa. The brand new wellness center, which includes a gym, treatment room, sauna, steam room, two jacuzzis and some cabanas, can now be enjoyed by guests (male or female, straight or otherwise) all summer long.
When we poked around on a recent weekday morning, we spotted a gentleman relaxing in one of the jacuzzi tubs. And what a way to start the day! The giant windows allow in plenty of light so it feels kind of like being outside; though since the entire bathhouse is enclosed, you're never really confronted with the noise from nearby Times Square. The thumping bass from neighboring XL nightclub, however, might be another story.
Take a look at our photos below!

You may never have given it much thought, but for the seriously wealthy, requesting a hotel room that comes with its own private sauna can be as commonplace as checking to see whether the hotel offers free WiFi. And just like with the whole WiFi issue, certain hotels do a better job of it than others.
Like, for instance, the Crowne Plaza Orlando Downtown (we're talking about saunas now, not WiFi). A local news channel ran a piece on which Orlando hotel suites are favored by the area's richest clients, and why. Not exactly the type of article that makes you feel good about your own finances, but fun to read nonetheless. Lo and behold, on the hotel's fourteenth floor, inside the Presidential Suite, is an en-suite sauna (above), included along with a steam shower, wet bar, and spare bedroom.
Now, how much would you pay for the luxury of a sauna two steps from your bed?
With everyone talking about New York's upcoming gay-themed hotel, The OUT NYC, we thought we'd take a look at some of the world's gay-friendliest hotels and resorts. Keep an eye out for that later next week. In the meantime, we thought we'd share a tip we received yesterday from a HotelChatter maven about a place called The Wild in Vienna.
Despite its evocative name, The Wild is in fact just a family-owned (Wild is their last name) European pension hotel located in Josefstadt, with free breakfast buffets, reasonable rates (from EUR 41), and close proximity to Vienna's sights. Interestingly, what their website chooses not to mention is Sport Sauna, a thriving sports-themed gay bathhouse, bar and general "cruising area" located in the basement. Oops. Guess we just outed them.
