Mandarin Oriental Launches Global Digital Detox Initiative
News Release issued July 26, 2016:
Mandarin Oriental will launch a Digital Detox initiative at all of its spas worldwide beginning Sept. 5, 2016. The program is designed to help guests find new ways to manage their relationship with technology.
The Digital Detox initiative encourages guests to surrender their phones upon arrival at the spa. In the spa relaxation rooms, guests can access a full range of mindfulness activities, including:
· Note card writing
· Relaxing and enjoying the silence
There will also be a selection of curated spa retail offerings, including:
· Eye masks
· Meditation pillows
· Calming teas and oils
A 1 hour 20 minute Digital Detox Retreat can also be booked, focusing on grounding both body and mind through the power of human touch. The treatment includes:
· Relaxation in an aromatic bath
· A massage that concentrates on the head, eyes, neck, shoulders, hands and feet
On departure, guests can reclaim their cleaned device from the spa, repackaged in its own protective digital shielding. To further support this new Digital Detox initiative, The Spas at Mandarin Oriental will again offer an annual Silent Night event for the holiday season. On Dec. 14, 2016 each spa will have a special silent retreat to remind guests about the importance of taking personal time for reflection, introspection and silence.
