“Well-being is a true realization of Hyatt’s purpose—we care for people so they can be their best,” said Mark Vondrasek, chief commercial officer for Hyatt. “By teaming up with industry leaders like Headspace, we are better positioned to care for our guests and employees, and help them prioritize their own well-being both during and in between stays at Hyatt hotels around the world.”
“Traveling can often take you out of your routine—so it’s important to take the time to pause, be present and take care of yourself,” said Andy Puddicombe, co-founder of Headspace, a digital health company with nearly 60 million users in 190 countries.
Key points of the alliance:
- Planners will have the option to “infuse Headspace content and experiences into meetings. Additionally, Headspace content will power Hyatt’s new meditation experience for meeting and conference attendees, which is expected to launch later this year,” according to a Hyatt statement.
- Hyatt employees will get complimentary subscriptions to Headspace to support them “on their own mental-health and well-being journeys.”
- Hyatt guests will get complimentary access to Headspace via in-room content. Included will be short meditations, soothing sounds for better sleep and expert guidance from Puddicombe, a meditation teacher and former monk.
- Members of World of Hyatt, the company’s loyalty program, will receive special Headspace offers and have access to Headspace content during their hotel stays via the program’s app.
