Hyatt announces collaboration with mindfulness app provider Headspace

By
Our mission is to improve the health and happiness of the world, and we’re thrilled to collaborate with Hyatt to make mindfulness more accessible to people wherever their travels may take them.
– Andy Puddicombe

Hyatt Hotels has announced a collaboration with mindfulness app provider Headspace, set to roll out in the coming months at Hyatt-branded hotels.

The partnership will provide mindfulness exercises, guided meditations and sleep content to Hyatt employees, corporate customers and guests.

Founded by former monk Andy Puddicombe and Rich Pierson, Headspace is a healthcare company specialising in meditation offering mindfulness advice and guidance via an app. The app has nearly 60 million users in 190 countries.

Puddicombe said: “Our mission is to improve the health and happiness of the world, and we’re thrilled to collaborate with Hyatt to make mindfulness more accessible to people wherever their travels may take them”.

The collaboration has been designed to ensure better care for Hyatt’s employees’ and guests’ wellbeing, with a variety of mindfulness experiences.

Guests will receive complimentary access to Headspace via in-room content, including short meditations, soothing sounds to encourage restful sleep and expert guidance from Puddicombe.

Employees will be offered a complimentary Headspace subscription, while corporate customers will have the opportunity to incorporate Headspace content and experiences into meetings packages. In addition, Headspace content will power Hyatt’s new meditation experience for meeting and conference attendees, which is due to launch later this year.

“Wellbeing is a true realisation of Hyatt’s purpose,” said Mark Vondrasek, CCO at Hyatt Hotels Corporation. “We care for people so they can be their best.

“By teaming up with industry leaders like Headspace, we’re better positioned to care for our guests and employees and help them prioritise their own wellbeing both during and in between stays at Hyatt hotels.”
