31 Days of Bubbly for 35 Hot Spas of 2012

NoMI SPA celebrates its spot in Condé Nast Traveler’s Iconic Hot List

NoMI Spa was recently featured amongst the world’s most blissful spas in Condé Nast Traveler’s 16th annual Hot List.

Condé Nast Traveler’s May Hot List issue is the ultimate insider’s guide to the hottest new hotels, spas, and restaurants of the year. Of the thousands of new properties that opened in the last year, editors traveled incognito to 49 countries to visit 172 new hotels, evaluating each on a standard set of criteria including service, food, atmosphere and amenities. Their mission? To discover the best in the world. This year, 121 made the cut, including NoMI Spa at Park Hyatt Chicago.

Recognized for its originality to affiliate the spa with its sister eatery, NoMI Kitchen, editors were fancied by NoMI Spa’s signature three-course spa prix-fixe tasting menu.  The tasting menu is a relaxing combination of three custom 45-minute treatments which are carefully paired with a small bite, therefore awarding NoMI Spa as “The Eater’s Spa.”

To celebrate this recognition, a complimentary glass of champagne will be offered to guests booking spa appointments during the month of May.  Guests may simply mention #HotList2012 upon booking the appointment.
