Travel blog by Travels of Adam (Hipster Blog) – Travels of Adam (Hipster Blog) - Travel & Lifestyle Hipster Blog If you’ve ever found yourself in the whirlwind that is JFK Airport’s Terminal 5 (Jet Blue’s primary terminal at the NYC airport), you know the airport hustle can be a bit overwhelming. New York City has three main airports: JFK, LGA, and EWR (technically Newark is in New Jersey). And while JFK used to be the flagship airport for the city, to be quite honest, Laguardia is much cleaner, nicer, and organized these days.
So, on a recent trip with Jet Blue, I reluctantly found myself at JFK’s Terminal 5. While I normally fly out of their international terminal, Terminal 5 has much less airport amenities than the other airport terminals. Thankfully, with my Priority Pass lounge membership (which I get through both my American Express Amex gold credit card as well as my Chase Sapphire credit card), I found one lounge option for my afternoon in the terminal.
Your only airport lounge option in Terminal 5? The Be Relax Spa. Spoiler alert: While my Priority Pass did grant me a temporary respite, the experience left a bit more to be desired. A Single Sanctuary in a Sea of Sameness Imagine this: You’re maneuvering through the organized chaos that is JFK’s Terminal 5, and suddenly, you spot an oasis of calm near Gate 24 – the Be Relax Spa.
Being armed with my trusty Priority Pass, I was keen to discover the rejuvenation haven. And with a 2-hour flight delay (thanks Jet Blue ugh), I had extra time to kill. The bright blue sign stands out, even though the Be Relax Spa is tucked away in front of Gate 7 behind most of the other airport restaurants and airport bars.
