Hyatt launches Healthy Living Breakfast Programme

Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Tuesday, 25 March 2008

A majority of business travellers staying in Dubai hotels are skipping breakfast and opting for either a quick cup of coffee or no early morning nourishment of any kind, claims Stuart Deeson, General Manager of the luxurious Park Hyatt Dubai.

The result of this trend is that these travellers then suffer from a related nutritional imbalance which causes headaches and general irritability, but can also lead the bodys immune system to breakdown, allowing for a greater likelihood of cold and flu.

We have long known that hotel guests, especially those travelling on business, tend to rush to appointments in the early morning rather than eating a substantial breakfast, the most important meal of the day. Unfortunately, not all of our guests have time to sit and enjoy a breakfast of hot zatar bread, thick foul moudammas, and fresh garden vegetables, said Deeson.

Global Hyatt Corporation is piloting a new program that seeks to better educate its valued guests about the importance of nutrition, but also provide them with a practical breakfast alternative that will allow them to both eat well and maintain busy, often frenetic, early morning schedules.

The Hyatt healthy living breakfast programme draws on the years of experience gained by the programmes chief nutritionist, Brazilian Patricia Teixeira, who has counseled international football stars at clubs in France, Italy, Netherlands, and Spain.

Teixeira says that high-performance energy drinks and smoothies are a reliable and nutritional breakfast alternative for hotel guests on the go.

She recommends seven types of juices to address jetlag, digestion, cellulite, high stress, low energy, immune system, and detox and four types of smoothies, which are thick, substantial drinks often containing largely blended fruits.

I am working with Hyatt just as I would any of my other clients I want their most valued assets to play like star performers. For me, Hyatt guests are the football stars that give the Hyatt brand its international reputation for excellence in guest relations, said Teixeira.
