InterContinental Hotels & Resorts is putting pioneering circadian technology into the palms of guests to enable them to be at their best as they explore the world. The partnership forms part of the transformative evolution of InterContinental Hotels & Resorts being rolled out globally. With a deep understanding of the diverse lives of modern travelers, InterContinental is introducing a range of ‘Intentional Flexibility’ initiatives, designed to support guests with seamlessly navigating their day to day lives.

Rooted in NASA science, the Timeshifter app devises personalized jetlag mitigation plans to overcome travel fatigue. Plans are based on guests’ chronotype, sleep pattern, itinerary, and personal preferences, and harness the body’s natural circadian rhythm.

Timeshifter is part of the reimagined InterContinental guest experience. Access to the app is complemented by a new restorative guest rooms concept, designed in partnership with neuroscience-based designer Isabelle Sjövall, and a menu of nutritionally rich dishes to counter the body’s natural response to travel, which aims to tackle travel fatigue holistically. These new initiatives are being introduced to ensure guests are replenished, restored and reenergized when staying at one of over 220 InterContinental properties worldwide.

Tom Rowntree, Vice President of Luxury & Lifestyle Brands, IHG Hotels & Resorts said: “Our partnership with Timeshifter is about putting the right technology in the hands of our guests so they can seamlessly shift through their day-to-day. By harnessing the power of cutting-edge solutions like Timeshifter, we’re not only addressing the common challenges faced by travelers but also redefining the entire guest experience. The technology embodies InterContinental’s relentless commitment to delivering unparalleled service by adjusting to the evolving needs of luxury travellers.”

A range of scientifically backed nutritionally rich dishes designed to combat energy slumps and boost vitality are also being introduced to all day dining menus at properties around the world. These dishes are meticulously designed to feature ingredients with properties to counter the body’s natural fatigue response to travel, whilst also giving a flavour of local culture. For example, eggs are rich in vitamin B12 which suppresses melatonin, the sleep-inducing hormone, to help induce wakefulness or magnesium rich green leafy vegetables to help balance fluctuations in mineral levels in the body caused by travelling.

InterContinental is elevating room spaces to be more versatile, working in collaboration with neuroscience-based designer, Isabelle Sjövall. This design direction recognizes elements that influence the way we respond to our environment, such as tones, textures and lighting as well as our connection to nature and biophilia. The goal is to help guests find restoration and rest within rooms, plus also rejuvenation and focus.

InterContinental guests will receive complimentary access to Timeshifter for use on their inbound and outbound journey. Developed in collaboration with world-renowned scientists, Timeshifter is based on the latest research in sleep and circadian neuroscience and crafts tailored recommendations to overcome jetlag based on the body’s natural circadian rhythm, ensuring guests arrive refreshed and ready to explore their destination.

InterContinental Hotels & Resorts is the world’s first and largest luxury hotel brand, founded by Pan American Airways Founder, Juan Trippe in 1946. Last year, InterContinental announced how it is reimagining the luxury travel experience with the modern luxury traveller at its heart.
