The Spa at Trump doesn't want you to worry your pretty little pampered head about a thing. That's why it's introducing the attache concept to Las Vegas. Consider it your personal butler during your spa visit.
"It's a lot of personalized hand-holding," said Colleen Stiritz, spa director for Spa at Trump. "Some larger spas, although they're beautiful, are so large they don't have that intimacy anymore."
If intimacy comes in the form of shined shoes, steamed clothes and a sparkling car -- all services the attache will perform or have arranged -- then, yes, consider it a lost art everywhere but Trump. The attache also eliminates the cattle call concept most relaxation rooms use. Rather than sit in a room full of white robed women and look up from your magazine each time a therapist enters, there's a formal introduction. Other standard duties the attache performs: preparing and "expertly presenting" an elixir, performing a custom tea ceremony and providing samples from the Chef Menu.
The purpose is to demonstrate a customized experience that goes beyond the pressure level preferred during a massage. For instance, if a guest requests green M&M's during her first visit, the chocolate candy will greet her on her second visit.
To ensure guests understand that their stay will be designed around their personal needs, receptionists get the customization process started with the spa's "intentions."
"Our intentions set us apart from other spas," Stiritz said. "Because everyone has a different reason for coming to the spa."
They can select from five intentions (see sidebar), each sets the tone for every aspect of the guest's visit, from the music that will accompany their treatment to the tea that best suits them. If the guest would rather not think about it, then they get slotted under the "calm" intention.
In addition to customization, the Spa at Trump hones in on the smallest of details. While guests wait for their service in the coed relaxation lounge, they can cover themselves in lavender-infused heated blankets and neck rests. The steam room is eucalyptus-scented, showers boast waterfall showerheads, soft suede covers the walls, gems infuse essential oils and personal TVs complete each machine in the fitness center.
The spa treatments incorporate the same careful thought. The Vegas Recovery Massage ($230 for 60 minutes) relies on compression, accupressure and blockage releases to help clients rehabilitate. The Sun Worshipper Body Wrap ($95 for 30 minutes) implements an aloe glaze mask, lavender and sea algae extracts to replenish skin after a day of laying out at the pool. And the Spatini Hand Treatment ($35 for 30 minutes) moisturizes dry hands in paraffin while the guest enjoys a martini prepared by the Trump bar staff.
The skin-care treatments and products at the Spa at Trump carry one of the most respected names in the industry: Kate Somerville. "Kate Somerville is known for her services to the stars before the Emmy's and Grammy's," Stiritz said. "In Las Vegas, they will be great before weddings or just a night on the town. The effects last a few days."
According to Stiritz, the treatments are called Kate Somerville Results Driven Facials because of the DermaLucent LED technology that lets products penetrate deeper into the skin, which then naturally plumpens collagen. The Ultimate Kate -- a facial exclusive to the Spa at Trump and includes an oxygen treatment, pressure point massage, DermaLucent therapy and foot massage -- costs $350 for 90 minutes.
Other brands sold at the spa include gem-infused organic body care products by Shiffa, Germaine de Capuccini, Hommage men's grooming products, Tara aromatherapy, Franche cosmetics and Jamu.
The Spa at Trump is open to non-guests and is located at 2000 Fashion Show Drive, 476-8000.
