Unplug and reconnect with new Digital Detox breaks

Unplug and reconnect with new Digital Detox breaks

Couples say “I do” to disconnecting as the popularity of specialist ‘digital detox’ breaks rise

St Vincent and the Grenadines launched a seven-night 'Detox in St Vincent and the Grenadines' package in January this year. Guests have to hand over all their technology and gadgets for a week dedicated to allowing yourselves to switch off, calm your minds and enjoy the present moment. Perfect for giving all your attention to your new spouse!

This comes as holiday comparison community Holiday Hypermarket emphasises the reliance many travellers have upon technology, and social media sites in particular. A recent TripAdvisor survey indicated that 38% of travellers post status updates to social networking sites while they are away.

Calum MacDonald, Holiday Hypermarket's Marketing Manager commented that: "whether travellers are looking for local attractions, sharing advice or checking into flights, they rely on their mobile phones and on social media to plan and enjoy their holidays."

St Vincent and the Grenadines argues that such dependence leaves travellers feeling tied down, distracted and that people's productiveness and stress levels naturally are affected by the pressure of constant interaction in one medium or another.

The St Vincent and the Grenadines break has gained plenty of press coverage in recent weeks. It's a high-profile and luxurious way to disconnect, but there are other ways to get away from it all on your honeymoon:
