Trilogy Spa Holdings announces the opening of Bamford Haybarn Spa at 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge. This will be the second Bamford Haybarn Spa opening in the US, after the brand’s first opening at 1 Hotel South Beach. Deeply rooted in nature, sustainability and holistic living, the spa will offer a menu of signature facials and massages featuring Bamford’s collection of skincare products, many of which meet the highest standard of organic certification from the UK’s Soil Association – a stricter standard than measured in the US.
Developed by wellness expert and organic pioneer Carole Bamford, the Bamford Haybarn Spa concept embraces global wellness traditions while using an exclusive line of products, made in England using organic and natural ingredients. Treatments feature a fusion of Swedish, Indian and Asian therapies to relax the body, while natural essences of geranium, rose and jasmine provide a sense of harmony, relaxation or inner peace, inspired by a heartfelt connection with nature.
“We are absolutely delighted to be opening our second US spa at the 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge. Bamford was founded on my passions for travel and wellbeing, so partnering with 1 Hotels was a natural choice, given we have a shared ethos and respect for the world around us,” says Carole Bamford, founder of the Bamford brand. “Using only the finest natural and organic ingredients, our Bamford products were developed to be used for therapies that I discovered on my own travels, and we are thrilled to be able to offer the Bamford wellness experience to a global audience.”
With an emphasis on personalized service, the Bamford Haybarn Spa offers treatments, facials and massages designed with guests’ skincare concerns and emotional needs in mind. Highlights include the Bamford Bespoke Facial, which applies holistic therapeutic techniques to leave the skin nourished and mind relaxed. Utilizing Bamford’s natural skincare and ancient yogic breathing, as well as hot and cold jade stones, this treatment restores, rejuvenates and repairs the skin.
Catering to the rising number of male spa-goers, the exclusive Bamford Grooming Department menu features three highly-specialized treatments formulated specifically for men’s skin, including the Edition 1 Signature Treatment. Combining traditional Japanese and Swedish massage techniques, alongside hot stone therapy, facial acupressure and reflexology, the treatment ultimately reduces stress and promotes deep relaxation.
Nestled beneath the evergreen lobby of 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge, the 5,000 square-foot Bamford Spa draws its design inspiration from traditional farming haybarns, transporting guests to the Costwolds of England with its hand-carved wooden doors, rustic branch shelves, two full-length tree trunks in the reception area and treatment corridor and bundles of natural willow on display. Designed by Spencer Fung Architects, Bamford’s signature heart motif can be found throughout the nine treatment rooms and spa lobby, taking the form of massage oil dishes, wall hangings and the jade stones used during services. Post-treatment, guests can browse the spa retail area, which features the newly created Bamford Haybarn Collection, a range of clothing made from the finest soft jerseys and designed to complement a wellness lifestyle, as well as a selection of Bamford’s trademark pieces made from outstanding natural fibers by artisans from around the World.
“As spa goers continue to seek out products with natural ingredients, we’re thrilled to be working with one of the first brands to champion the crusade for organic beauty,” says Michelle Kinney, Senior VP of Operations at Trilogy Spa Holdings. Through this partnership we are aiming to further encourage guests to find sustainable, natural and eco-friendly ways to indulge in their favorite experiences – from dining and travel, to spa days and shopping.”
Located in Brooklyn’s burgeoning Brooklyn Heights neighborhood, Bamford Haybarn Spa at 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge is easily accessible from Manhattan and serves as the ultimate NYC getaway or staycation spot for local travelers. Guests are located near some of New York’s most iconic sites and landmarks, including The Brooklyn Bridge, 1 World Trade Center in downtown Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridge Park.
