Between booking flights and business meetings, it is easy to get caught up in the busy travel lifestyle, and when appointment books and voicemail boxes begin to fill up, often the first thing to get pushed to the side is a healthy lifestyle; thankfully the Trump Hotel Collection is looking to end that.
Partnering with Under Armour and Technogym, the luxury hotel brand has announced plans to launch three new programs designed to encourage healthy living and eating for guests. The trio of programs, under the umbrella of TRUMP Wellness, is slated to debut on June 17.
The program is a vital step in continuing efforts to provide guests with personalized experiences and varied options, according to Chief Operating Officer Jim Petrus. “With the TRUMP Wellness program, we are effectively eliminating the challenges that can interrupt a healthy lifestyle when you’re away from home,” Petrus said.
The first two programs, Nourish and Quick Bites, deal exclusively with dining. Nourish provides guests with a variety of healthy in-room dining options, including organic, gluten-free and vegan menu items, all packed with nutritious ingredients. A main focus of the program is to partner with local, organic food suppliers. For example, Chef Shoji Namatame at Trump International Hotel Waikiki Beach Walk, is collaborating with local gourmet ice cream producer, Lappert’s Hawaii in Kauai, to produce a custom white chocolate and yuzu-flavored ice cream and a calamansi sorbet, both of which will be served exclusively at the hotel. The Nourish program also includes healthier mini-bar options and better breakfast, lunch and dinner menus for younger guests with the Healthy Kids Menu by Trump.
Quick Bites, the second-culinary related program in the Trump Wellness initiative, is an express in-room menu, with a guaranteed delivery of 15 minutes or less. Specifically designed to accommodate busy lifestyles, the menu options have been selected to be both nutritious and easy to eat on the run.
The third program, which was developed with the help of fitness superpowers Under Armour and Technogym, was designed to encourage guests to sustain an exercise regime while away from home. For those who prefer to work out in the privacy of their own room, equipment like light weights and yoga mats are available by request. Pre-loaded iPod Shuffles, which can be programmed with the guest’s personal musical taste from their Trump Card Privileges Program, are also available. Other perks include Technogym training cards and maps of local running trails.
