Men Get A Little Something Extra In The Bathrooms at Trump Ocean Club
There's no accounting for taste
We stopped in at the newly-opened Trump Ocean Club in Panama recently, and of all the hotel's glittering features (infinity pools, ocean views from every room, a Louis Vuitton-inspired wine bar), our curiosity was perhaps most piqued by these inverted semen-shaped turquoise urinals, found near the 15th-floor lobby. Nothing like a urinal with a tail on it to get you nice and relaxed!
These are the only urinals in the hotel with this specific design—the rest of the bathrooms (public and otherwise) are much more traditional, including the women's bathroom next door, which, for obvious reasons, has no use for turquoise urinals. The employee who showed us around the place explained, "This is what happens when you let a woman designs a men's bathroom."
Other features we liked: beautiful glass art above each of the toilets in the stalls, which sets off the dark mood of the bathroom, and comes about as close as you can get to a museum-like experience while doing your business.
For its interior design, Trump enlisted the services of HBA Design, which has worked with quite a few top-tier hotels around the world (Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong, Istanbul Edition, Waldorf Astoria Shanghai, to name a few).
