Abstract: The present study proposed and tested the mediating effect of work-life balance (WLB) in the relationship between recovery experiences and subjective well-being (SWB). Also, it aims to investigate the moderating role of trait mindfulness in the proposed relationships. A convenience sample of 348 full-time hotel employees was collected using a self-administered online survey. Results from Confirmatory Factor Analysis (CFA) and Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) illustrated that mastery experiences and control were positively related to work-life balance. Meanwhile, control and work-life balance were positively associated with subjective well-being. And the subsequent significant indirect effects confirmed the general role of work-life balance as a mediator. Besides, trait mindfulness partially strengthened the positive impact of recovery experiences on work-life balance and subjective well-being. At last, the implications for the hotel industry were discussed regarding the strategies to help improve hotel employees’ mental health and self-care.
