Hyatt Joins Forces with Be Well by Dr. Frank Lipman to Take Healthy Hospitality to a New Level

Hotels Corporation
(NYSE: H) and Be
by Dr. Frank Lipman today announced they will work together to
support guests’ health and well-being on and off the road. The
collaboration will focus on making it easier for guests to continue
their routines, or try new ones, while away from home. By embedding
healthy options throughout the travel journey, Hyatt and Be Well’s goal
is to help travelers be their best wherever they are.

“Our guests are embracing healthier lifestyles and are increasingly
looking to integrate healthy habits into their travel experiences.
Wellness is not a one-size-fits-all concept, and it can be difficult. We
are committed to listening to our guests and giving them easier options
to make the best choice for them,” said Global Chief Marketing Officer
Maryam Banikarim, Hyatt Hotels Corporation. “Working with the Be Well
team is helping us bring their passion for making healthy living simple
into everything we do.”

As an internationally recognized pioneer in integrative and functional
medicine, Dr. Lipman draws from a career that blends traditional and
alternative methods to help people reclaim their natural vitality. Be
Well was started in 2012 with a mission to help time-starved customers
achieve genuine and sustainable life changes through support and
education. By providing high quality supplements and nutrition products,
Be Well offers effective and convenient ways to address health concerns.
Be Well products and services are designed to increase health and
well-being through preventative health and wellness content, corporate
programs and personalized health coaching.

The collaboration will focus on the guest experience across all Hyatt
brands globally, starting at Park Hyatt hotels in New York, Chicago and
Washington D.C. With the guest’s journey as the framework, experiences
will include healthy refreshments at arrival, curated in-room amenities,
increased fitness offerings, expanded menu options, and nutritious to-go
alternatives to maintain healthy habits on the road. Beyond the guest
experience, Hyatt and Be Well will partner on ‘Chef Workshops’ bringing
together Hyatt chefs and the Be Well team to create more options in
overall food and beverage experiences. Retreats are also being designed
to provide an immersive experience for those guests that want to go
all-in by exploring nutrition, fitness and mindfulness.

“Wellness is more than a class or a diet – it’s a lifestyle. People
recognize the importance of healthier options, and we are on a mission
to make well-being convenient and accessible to all – on and off the
road,” said Chief Executive Officer Brandon Shainfeld, Be Well. “Our
longtime patients include Gwyneth Paltrow, Bobbi Brown and Donna Karan
and we are excited to expand our partners to include Hyatt, where we
will work together on integrating health and wellness into a traveler’s
experience. It is a natural extension of the healthy habits we promote
and live by every day.”

“As a frequent traveler, I know how hard it can be to maintain a healthy
routine on the road. Be Well started as a way to help my patients break
down barriers to everyday healthy living,” said Dr. Lipman. “I share
Hyatt’s passion to care for guests’ well-being and am impressed with the
approach of making it a natural part of the guest experience and I
believe working together can have a meaningful impact.”

Individual Hyatt properties are also providing specialized options in
response to local traveler interest. For example, Hyatt Centric hotels
provide guests with places close by to work out or experience the
neighborhood. Park Hyatt Chicago has Shred415 workout classes on premise
once a week, while Park Hyatt New York will host meditation classes with
MNDFL, New York City’s premier meditation studio. All Hyatt hotels make
their gyms available 24/7 making it an easy option for guests to take
advantage of when they need. Each Hyatt hotel is charged with listening
to its guests to determine the health and wellness options that fit
travelers’ needs.

Today’s announcement continues Hyatt’s focus on applying a holistic
approach to health and wellness. In 2014 the company launched Food
Thoughtfully Sourced, Carefully Served
, a global program
in which Hyatt chefs evolved existing menus with an eye on sustainable
health. This includes such options as grass-fed meats, sustainable
seafood and a “For
Kids, by Kids
” menu, which provides more nutritious, fresh and
interactive offerings for our youngest guests.

The term “Hyatt” is used in this release for convenience to refer to
Hyatt Hotels Corporation and/or one or more of its affiliates.
