We predict random-phase spatial solitons in instantaneous nonlocal nonlinear media. The key mechanism responsible for self-trapping of such incoherent wave packets is played by the nonlocal (rather than the traditional noninstantaneous) nature of the nonlinearity. This kind of incoherent soliton has profoundly different features than other incoherent solitons.
