UK-based luxury day spa operator Bamford Haybarn Spa, founded by organic pioneer Carole Bamford, has opened its second US location.
Housed in the upscale 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge in New York, the spa will be operated by management company Trilogy Spa Holdings, which operates a number of spa businesses for brands including Guerlain, Sisley and Naturapathica.
Designed by Spencer Fung Architects, the 5,000sq ft (465sq m) spa houses nine treatment rooms, a private suite and relaxation area.
The design concept was inspired by traditional English farming haybarns, “transporting guests to the Costwolds” with hand-carved wooden doors, rustic branch shelves and full-length, feature tree trunks. The focus is on luxury, "down to the last detail", including the robes and towels, which have been supplied by The Madison Collection.
The spa will offer a menu of signature facials and massages featuring Bamford’s collection of organic skincare products, many of which have been certified by the UK’s Soil Association – a stricter standard than measured in the US.
Treatments include a fusion of Swedish, Indian and Asian body therapies, as well as a range of facials and beauty treatments.
“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,” said Bamford.
“Using natural and organic ingredients, our products were developed to be used for therapies I discovered on my travels.”
Michelle Kinney, senior vice president of operations at Trilogy, added: “We’re thrilled to be working with one of the first brands to champion the crusade for organic beauty.
“Through this partnership, we're aiming to encourage guests to find sustainable, natural and eco-friendly ways to indulge in their favourite experiences – from dining and travel to spa days and shopping.”
The opening of the New York spa follows the launch of a Bamford Haybarn Spa at 1 Hotel South Beach in Miami.
In total, there are five Bamford Haybarn-branded spas in operation, with UK facilities at the Daylesford Farm in Gloucestershire, the Berkeley hotel in London and on the Belmond Royal Scotsman train.
