Summer is in full swing at Hyatt Regency Sonoma Wine Country with a variety of wellness and entertainment meeting options.From yoga to movies, there's something for everyone's interests--whether they be cycling and hiking or lounging by the pool with a good read.

The yoga package was inspired by the well-known passion for wellness among Californians in general and the Sonoma community in particular. Plus, when people are traveling on business and meetings are often back-to-back, a break that involves gentle physical movement and breathing work is great for rejuvenation. so to us, it simply makes sense. Not to mention, they've partnered with YogaONE, and they bring puppies to their sessions.

“At Hyatt Regency Sonoma, our goal is to evoke the artist within and curate new experiences for our guests. Our goal for the meeting attendees is to leave our hotel rejuvenated with memorable unique experiences. This is done by incorporating fun team-building events such as learning how to paint from an established local artist or selecting flowers from our flower cart to create a bouquet for their table," says Nanci Figueroa, director of sales and marketing. "For those that seek an adventure, we have partnerships with our local vendors, which can provide zip lining or drive a McLaren Sports Car at Sonoma Raceway. When meeting attendees are having fun and learning something new, we find the next day they are energized and engaged in their conference. We successfully bring the Sonoma experience to our meeting attendees.”

"We want meeting planners to know that we are here to support every aspect of the planning and execution of their events. We are flexible and agile and are here to accommodate needs, changes, whatever comes down the pike.
