Hyatt names Patrick Huey director of global wellbeing operations

Patrick Huey has been appointed Hyatt Hotels' director of global wellbeing operations
Huey joins Hyatt's wellness team headed up by TJ Abrams, vice president global wellbeing
His career has included tenures with Four Seasons, Viceroy Hotels, Montage International, We Care Spa, Minor Hotel Group, Equinox and Sandals
Huey has been a long-term member of the ISPA community and continues to serve as chair of the ISPA Board since his appointment in 2020

Patrick Huey has been appointed as the new director of global wellbeing operations at Hyatt Hotels Corporation.

A spa and wellness veteran, Huey has more than 20 years of global experience in the wellness and hospitality industries where he has worked across the US, Mexico, the Caribbean and Southeast Asia.

Most recently, Huey worked as general manager at We Care Spa in California – a 28-suite wellness resort and spa located in the Coachella Valley. He's also previously served as vice president of spa and retail for Montage International and group spa director in Asia for Minor Hotel Group (which operates the Anantara, Avani and Tivoli hotel brands).

Earlier on in his career, Huey worked in spa leadership roles for Equinox and Four Seasons before becoming corporate director for spa operations for the Viceroy Hotel Group, followed by a role as corporate director of spa for Sandals Resorts.

In 2020, Huey was elected as ISPA board chair – a position which he continues in today. He used this platform during the pandemic to enthusiastically lend his voice to events and initiatives designed to support spas and resource partners to survive the pandemic’s effects.

Huey's new role at Hyatt marks an expansion of the wellness team which has been headed up by TJ Abrams, vice president of global wellbeing, since his appointment in December 2022.

Hyatt’s portfolio now includes more than 1,250 hotels and all-inclusive properties in 76 countries across six continents which range from boutique properties with 50 rooms up to sites with 2,000 rooms.

With nearly 30 brands in its portfolio, Hyatt is best known in the wellness sector for its destination spa brand Miraval – which has just opened its fourth Life in Balance spa location in California.
