Priority Pass members can enjoy complimentary spa treatments at select airports. This feature has now been rolled out to 16 locations in the United States and Canada, so I wanted to recap all the eligible locations in this post (I’m updating this post, as a new location has just been added at LAX TBIT).
“Be Relax” spas join Priority Pass
Priority Pass is the world’s largest network of independent airport lounges, with over 1,300 locations around the world. While most Priority Pass locations are traditional lounges, the network also has some other unique experiences, including dozens of airport restaurants.
Priority Pass members can now receive credits at the following 16 “Be Relax” spas (and their hours):
- The “Be Relax” spa at Atlanta Airport (ATL) in Concourse B near gate B22 (daily from 7AM to 10PM)
- The “Be Relax” spa at Dallas Fort Worth Airport (DFW) near gate B28 (daily from 7AM to 9PM)

What “Be Relax” treatments do Priority Pass members get?
Priority Pass members are entitled to one of the following treatments at “Be Relax” airport spa locations:
- 30 minute Lounger Massage — Be Back ($35 value)
- 15 minute Lounger Massage plus Aromatherapy & O2 — Be Back ($35 value)
- 10 minute Foot Massage plus Aromatherapy & O2 — Be Feet ($38 value)
- You’ll need to present a boarding pass for confirmed same day travel (though an arriving boarding pass should be fine)
- Members are allowed to bring up to one guest (meaning two people could get treatments)
- Those who have a Priority Pass membership through an Amex or Capital One card, including The Platinum Card® from American Express (review) (Enrollment required) or Capital One Venture X Rewards Credit Card (review) (Rates & Fees), aren’t entitled to this, as Amex and Capital One exclude most non-lounge experiences for members; however, Priority Pass memberships through the Chase Sapphire Reserve® Card (review) do qualify
Time permitting, who wouldn’t love a quick head, foot, or back massage between flights? “Be Relax” has locations at a lot more airports around the globe, and it’s nice to see that more locations are being added, though slowly. I wonder if the locations being added are the ones that are the quietest and most in need of more business, or what.
For those curious about the economics, essentially Priority Pass pays participating locations a fixed amount for each visit. In some cases that just goes toward being admitted to a lounge, in some cases that goes toward dining at a restaurant, and in some cases that goes toward another cool experience (like this).
Should you tip at “Be Relax” spas?
I figured I’d address this, since the question will likely otherwise come up in the comments section. My take is that if you’d tip for a paid spa treatment then you should probably also tip for a spa treatment through Priority Pass:
- Priority Pass is just another form of payment for your massage, in lieu of cash; think of it like paying with a gift card
- In the USA there’s generally the expectation of tipping for spa services
More “Be Relax” airport spas are joining Priority Pass, giving members the opportunity to enjoy a complimentary spa treatment before or after their flight. This is an awesome concept for Priority Pass to expand, and I’m crossing my fingers that we see a lot more locations added. Here’s to hoping that this doesn’t get so popular that there’s an hour-long wait to take advantage of this.
What do you make of “Be Relax” spas being added to Priority Pass?
