The Turkish and Moroccan hammams are unique to The Spa at Trump SoHo. There are many things that make the hammams special. Where most hammam treatments around the world are communal by gender, the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star spa offers private treatments that include your choice for a male or female attaché.
Both the Turkish and Moroccan hammams are done in a domed, mosaic-tiled room where you lay on a warm belly stone made of marble while your attaché tends to your skin. Using various temperatures of water, you skin is scrubbed with oil-based castile or black soap with crushed olives. A kessa mitt is used to slough away the dead skin, leaving you glowing and refreshed. The Moroccan choice also includes and full-body application of rhassoul clay and a scalp massage.
The therapists at this luxury New York spa were taught first-hand how to administer the baths from specialists direct from Turkey and Morocco so the treatments are given as if you were in Africa or the Middle East. The treatment rooms are also designed for authenticity. With their marble belly stones, metallic tiles and atmospheric candles, it’s a transporting experience.
