Timeshifter: The Six Senses hotel application that helps business travellers cope with jet lag

Developed to help business travellers deal with the effects of jet lag, the Timeshifter application is currently being tested by guests in Six Senses hotels.


Long-haul flights, whether for business or pleasure, are often a source of fatigue and stress, namely due to time differences. Hotel chain Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas are hoping to spare their guests this disturbance thanks to an official partnership with Timeshifter.

This application offers personalised advice on how to beat jet lag, based on data such as the travellers’ sleep quality, their “chronotype” (chronobiological profile) and their flight plan, reports website Tom Travel.


A programme used by astronauts and elite athletes


Co-created with Professor Steven Lockley from Harvard Medical School, the Timeshifter application is inspired by the most recent research into sleep and circadian neuroscience. Already adopted by astronauts, elite athletes and CEOs to overcome the negative effects of changing time zones – such as fatigue, insomnia or lethargy – it can be used by anyone, without the need for any special equipment.

The programme has a “practical” option which offers straightforward advice on how to adapt, as well as pre-trip advice and even the use of melatonin. There is also a “Quick turnaround” function for business travellers whose trips are too short for them to adapt properly to the sleep/wake cycle.


Timeshifter is available free of charge to guests in Six Senses hotels


Thanks to the hotel chain’s partnership with Timeshifter, clients booking a room via the website, by email or by telephone, will receive a promotional code in their booking confirmation that enables them to unlock a programme (available on iOS or Android) free of charge, to help them deal with jet lag.

“We're delighted to partner with Timeshifter and to provide our guests with a state-of-the-art tool so they can get the most out of their time when staying with Six Senses and to be their best after they arrive back home,” announced Neil Jacobs, CEO of Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas. The Six Sense hotels, which place wellbeing at the heart of their client experience, offer travellers an extensive array of massages and personalised dietary plans, as well as health and lifestyle assessments carried out by experts.
