Healthy Bites From the TrumpJune 11, 2013
Trump Hotel Collection is rolling out a trio of programs as part of its Trump Wellness initiative, starting June 17.
The first program, Nourish, will enhance each hotel’s in-room dining menu with a range of options, providing guests with vegan, gluten-free and organic selections with complete nutritional values. A Healthy Kids Menu by Trump will also provide breakfast, lunch and dinner for the junior set. Minibars will be revamped with healthier snacks rather than the standard minibar fare. At least one-third of all choices at each hotel will be in a health food category.
As part of the Nourish program, Trump Hotel Collection’s culinary teams have partnered with organic certifying companies to develop a selection of menu items made with certified organic ingredients that are sourced locally and delivered fresh daily. For example, Chef Greg Sgarro at Trump National Doral® Miami has arranged for nearby Paradise Farms to grow a variety of organic herbs and vegetables exclusively for the resort’s use. At Trump International Hotel Waikiki Beach Walk, Chef Shoji Namatame sources hydroponic lettuces from Maunawili Farms in Kailua and orders organic vanilla bean ice cream from historic Lappert’s Hawaii in Kauai. In development with Lappert’s is a custom white chocolate/yuzu-flavored ice cream and a calamansi sorbet, both of which will be exclusive to the hotel and whose ingredients come from local farmers.
The second program designed to accommodate busy lifestyles, Quick Bites, will be an express in-room menu that will include health-wise and delicious options. All items will have delivery guaranteed in 15 minutes or less. These food selections have been designed for guests on the run or with time constraints and can be taken to go.
The third program, Travel Fit, encourages guests to maintain their workout regime while traveling, whether they choose to exercise in their guest room or the fitness center. Equipment like yoga mats, stretch bands and light weights will be available to guests upon request to their Trump Attaché, making it easy to stay fit without leaving the room. For guests who forget their workout gear or are struck with sudden inspiration,fitness apparel and footwear from Under Armour will be provided, along with pre-loaded iPod Shuffles with the guest’s personal music genre preferences from their Trump Card Privileges Program guest profile. Fitness centers are stocked with training cards portraying easy-to-follow workouts developed exclusively for Trump by the world leaders in fitness, Technogym. And for guests who wish to take their workout outside, maps of local running paths have been designed by each Trump Hotel Collection hotel.
