Castle Hotel and Spa Announces Rebranded Spa and Renovations

Castle Hotel and Spa in Tarrytown, New York, today announced a rebranding and name change from THANN Sanctuary Spa to Sankara Spa to better reflect its philosophy of providing a luxurious and restorative environment for its guests. “Sankara” is the legal corporate name of the Castle’s ownership. It is an extension of the Sankara Hotel and Spa brand on Yakushima island, Japan – a World Heritage Site (UNESCO) and renown nature preserve. Sankara Spa at the Castle Hotel and Spa strives to evoke the otherworldliness and spiritual awakening by which its namesake enjoys.

“We are very excited to be unveiling Sankara Spa with renovations from the front entryway, to upgrades on the walkway, and in the women’s locker room, showers and the steam room.  As always, we remain committed to bringing the highest possible quality spa experience to our guests,” said Mika Hori, Director of Operations at The Castle Hotel and Spa. “The rebranded Sankara Spa enhances the luxury our guests enjoy when visiting the Castle Hotel and Spa.”

As part of the rebranding, Sankara Spa will feature Naturopathica, a line of New York-based wellness products which pair botanical ingredients and clean cosmeceuticals to create skin care, body care and herbal remedies that deliver true and lasting results. “In the past, we shipped our products from overseas, but now we’re excited to be sourcing our products locally from New York. Offering products from the local community is not only important to our business, but to many of our customers as well, and it will also help with in-store inventory on our spa’s most popular products,” added Mika Hori.
