TRUMP SOHO Hotel opens state of the art SPA, with New York’s first luxury hammam
Inaugurated earlier this year, TRUMP SOHO Hotel opened this week an impressive 11,000-square-foot spa which encompasses two floors of the sleek Manhattan hotel. The new SPA introduces the sought-after skin-care products and treatments of Kate Somerville and a selection of services created specifically for its SoHo locale. It also features the first authentic luxury hammams in New York City, providing a rare opportunity to experience the traditional social and cultural bathing rituals of Turkey and the Middle East.
Created under Ivanka Trump’s direction, The Spa at Trump’s elegant design is the stylish work of DiGuiseppe Architect, the award-winning hospitality and spa specialists. It includes nine private treatment rooms and wet rooms, separate hammams for men and women, and indoor and outdoor relaxation areas.
The spa’s state-of-the-art fitness center is outfitted with the latest equipment from TECHNOGYM. The hotel in New York City boasts three luxurious Spa Suites offering private, connecting couples-sized treatment rooms and designed by Rockwell Group will open in the fall.
Throughout The Spa at Trump, DiGuiseppe has introduced Middle Eastern design details that create an environment both sensuous and serene, from Assyrian-shaped ceilings tiled in Capiz shells to woven-mesh chandeliers of nickel and crystal. Spa-goers step through a portal of Maccassar ebony into an entry fashioned after a Moroccan courtyard and graced by a fountain carved from Calacatta gold marble.
Under the domed ceilings of the men’s and women’s hammams, surrounded by mosaic-tiled walls, a dedicated Hammam Attache leads spa-goers through time-honored rituals from Turkey, Morocco, Persia and India. The Turkish Hammam treatment, for instance, features an oil-based castile soap applied with a traditional handmade Kessa mitt while the spa-goer lies on a heated belly stone of Calacatta marble, leaving the skin feeling like silk. The Moroccan Hammam treatment incorporates authentic Moroccan black soap crafted from olive oil and crushed olives in a full-body exfoliation, followed by a detoxifying warm Ghassoul clay application. A balancing Ayurvedic massage, Shirodhara treatment, henna and threading is also be available.
Spa-goers also benefit from the highly personalized services of a Trump Spa Attache who guide them through each step of the experience, from assisting with the selection of a robe, slippers and locker, to preparing infused elixirs and customizing iPod music selections.
Trump SoHo, the first luxury hotel in Downtown Manhattan is housed within an impressive 46 story glass tower. The 391 spacious guestrooms and suites decorated with custom furnishing by FENDI Casa feature floor-to-ceiling windows providing unrivaled views of the city’s spectacular skyline and the Hudson.
