HONG KONG - With wellness becoming an increasingly essential component of any meetings and events recently, the new global wellbeing collaboration between Hyatt and global meditation app Headspace couldn't be more perfectly timed.

Set to launch at Hyatt-branded hotels around the world in the coming months, the partnership will see the hotel bringing mindfulness exercises, guided meditations and sleep content to its millions of employees, corporate customers and guests.

"Wellbeing is a true realisation of Hyatt's purpose - we care for people so they can be their best," said Mark Vondrasek, chief commercial officer, Hyatt Hotels Corporation. "By teaming up with industry leaders like Headspace, we are 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 around the world."

As part of this alliance, planners will have the option to infuse Headspace content and experiences into meetings packages. Additionally, Headspace content will power Hyatt's new meditation experience for meeting and conference attendees, which is expected to launch later this year.

Non-corporate guests will also stand to benefit with complimentary in-room Headspace content, including short meditations, soothing sounds and expert guidance from former monk and Headspace co-founder Andy Puddicombe.

World of Hyatt members can receive exclusive Headspace member offers and will have access to meditation and mindfulness content during their stay via the World of Hyatt app.
