The Spa at Trump at Trump SoHo New York Features City’s Only Authentic Luxury Hammams, Spa Suites & Exclusive Arrangement with Kate Somerville
NEW YORK – The Spa at Trump, the award-winning spa brand of Trump Hotel Collection, has amassed countless accolades since its debut at Trump SoHo New York in August 2010. Providing a calming counterpoint to the bustling Spring Street below, the 11,000-square-foot spa encompasses the seventh and eighth floors of the sleek hotel and introduces to the Manhattan spa market the Trump Personal Intentions, sought-after products and treatments of Kate Somerville, and a selection of services created specifically for its SoHo locale.
The Spa at Trump also features the first authentic luxury hammam in New York City, affording spa-goers a rare opportunity to experience the traditional cultural bathing rituals of Turkey and the Middle East. Inspired by Ivanka Trump’s travels in Istanbul, the addition of the hammams speaks to the exceptional attention to detail she has committed to every aspect of the spa’s development.
Under Ivanka’s direction, The Spa at Trump was elegantly designed by DiGuiseppe Architect, the award-winning hospitality and spa specialists. The Spa at Trump features nine private treatment rooms and wet rooms, a state-of-the-art fitness center with Technogym equipment, two separate luxury hammams for men and women, and indoor and outdoor relaxation areas.
Guests seeking the ultimate in relaxation may opt for one of three luxurious Spa Suites, offering access to a connecting couples-sized treatment room, an in-room yoga kit, and additional exclusive spa amenities, including a private in-room sauna in one of the suites.
The Hammam Experience
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 Attaché 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 guest lies on a heated belly stone of Calacatta marble, leaving 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 are also available.
In keeping with the tenets of The Spa at Trump brand, every moment of the Spa at Trump experience caters to the individual guest’s desires, expressed through his or her individually selected Trump Personal Intention—Calm, Balance, Purify, Heal or Revitalize. Each intention corresponds to a Trump Signature Gemstone Spa Treatment featuring precious gemstone-infused oils—sapphires to heal and calm, diamonds for balance, emeralds for purification, and rubies for revitalization.
Additionally, The Spa at Trump is proud to offer an exclusive arrangement with Kate Somerville, bringing the skincare products and treatments of this leading aesthetician and favorite of Hollywood celebrities to spa-goers. Treatments include the Ultimate Kate, a super-hydrating oxygen treatment that uses skin-plumping dermal boosters, and Somerville’s innovative Dermalucent light therapy to protect the skin from free radical damage. The Spa at Trump also features the premier skin and body care brands of Shiffa, Tara, Gehwol, and Alessandro.
Rounding out the spa treatment menu is a full array of classic massages; sauna and steam rituals; facials, including two exclusively for men; hair, hand and foot therapies; and salon services.
