Hyatt hotels and spas proudly showcase their wellbeing offerings,
designed to positively impact how colleagues, customers, and community
members feel, fuel and function
Hotels Corporation (NYSE: H) today celebrates Hyatt’s landmarks of
wellbeing – Feel, Fuel and Function – by educating and encouraging
colleagues and guests to participate in Global Wellness Day 2019, an
entirely not-for-profit day dedicated raising awareness around what it
means to live well in mind and body. More than 400 properties, including
Hyatt’s Miraval and Exhale brands and the Hyatt’s regional and corporate
offices, are expected to host health and wellness-related events
reflecting their specific destination and local communities.
“At Hyatt, wellbeing is at the core of our DNA,” said Mark Vondrasek,
chief commercial services officer at Hyatt. “We know that wellbeing is
increasingly important to our colleagues, guests, and customers, and
Global Wellness Day provides an opportunity to jointly celebrate our
focus on wellbeing at a global scale. Today, we’re excited to showcase
distinct wellbeing experiences and bring our landmarks of wellbeing –
Feel, Fuel and Function – to life for colleagues and guests at our
hotels around the world.”
From Delhi to Chicago and Zurich to Hong Kong, Hyatt corporate offices
and properties have chosen unique ways to recognize this day. Leading by
example, Hyatt’s global headquarters will be celebrating Global Wellness
Day with colleagues by offering a guided yoga and meditation class and a
healthy breakfast to start the day. Additionally, knowing guests and
colleagues’ alike put great value in their wellbeing, properties across
