Digital detox experiences are places of escape from the bustle of the 24-hour connected lifestyle. No Wi-Fi, no internet, so you can just switch your phone off and enjoy the peace. A digital detox is a great holiday for families to reconnect; for couples who just want to spend time alone; or even for groups of friends who don’t want technology to distract from having a good time together.
