Headspace and KEYPR Partner to Deliver Guided Meditation App to Hotels

KEYPR®, the technology company whose enterprise cloud platform is the leader in guest experience and hospitality management, announced today that it has partnered with Headspace to deliver its wildly popular guided meditation and mindfulness sessions to hotel rooms worldwide via KEYPR’s in-room tablets.

“Wellness is a huge priority in hospitality today, and undoubtedly all travelers can benefit from a few minutes of calm," said Dan Kessler, VP of Business Development and Partnerships at Headspace. "Traveling is a great time to learn a new skill and we are thrilled to partner with KEYPR's expansive hotel network to reach new users and continue growing the Headspace brand in the hotel space.”

This collaboration with Headspace marks an evolution in how hotels provide guests with wellness options completely tailored to their needs. According to a recent Global Wellness Tourism Report, an estimated 17 million travelers define themselves as “health and well-being focused,” with 40% of those qualifying as frequent travelers. While hotels have broadened the definition of wellness amenities to include yoga classes, oxygen, and juice bars, Headspace delivers a wholly unique experience for travelers seeking in-room rejuvenation on their schedule. Through KEYPR’s in-room tablets, hotel guests can access Headspace’s library of several hundred themed sessions. With Headspace’s complete app available, travelers can participate in reducing both daily stress and perceived stress.

“As we focus on developing deeper integrations with content partners that no other platform can provide, we also look to round out the most valuable offerings for hotels,” said KEYPR CEO Robert Stevenson. “Headspace is a perfect tool to accommodate existing wellness-oriented travelers, and potentially convert some guests needing a little stress relief.”

The Headspace app -- along with others including iHeartRadio, Wall Street Journal, Scribd and more -- is now live across the entirety of KEYPR’s affiliate network, at no additional cost to hotel guests.
