Consider incorporating a digital detox into your next holiday. Enhance the benefits of taking a break from all technology during your down time.

Digital Detox Retreat in Pranburi Hua Hin

Digital Detox

A digital detox is a relatively new concept that busy professionals ought to consider. Just as we all need a break from work, as most of us (hopefully) indulge in at the end of the workday and on weekends, we need to also separate from technology. Our brains need a chance to recharge from the seemingly infinite barrage of updates and information.

As symptoms of technology overload have become apparent, including anxiety and loneliness, environments that support disconnecting have begun to sprout up. A digital detox option is appearing in wellness retreat centers. It has also been incorporated into resort hotels, such as Aleenta Resort in Hua Hin, Thailand, combining the benefits of a vacation with time away from technology.

Overwhelmed, Isolated and Addicted to Technology

In our modern, connected world we have become more dependent on our digital tools. Yet these tools, which are meant to simplify our lives and free up our time and energy to do other things, are making us feel more frantic and depleted. Even during our down time, including evenings, weekends and vacations, we find ourselves still busy and distracted. The tools that provide us with continuous access to internet, social updates, and instant messaging, continue to demand our attention when we should be resting or spending time with loved ones. It can seem impossible to truly get away.

Many of us are experiencing symptoms of technology overload. The lack of clear boundaries between work and pleasure, and the continuous stimulation during down time, can lead to signs of stress, such as fatigue, decreased immunity, and feelings of overwhelm. In addition, we are feeling a lack of face-to-face emotional connection. Evidence shows that people feel isolated and lonely in today’s world and that most in-person engagements tend to be interrupted by technology, depleting the quality of those experiences. The time we spend connecting online is depleting our capacity to engage in real-life relationships.

On top of that, the idea of separating from technology for a time may bring on an additional set of symptoms comparable to separation anxiety. Not only are our relationships with others being negatively affected, we are uncomfortable being alone with ourselves without the distraction of technology.

We are addicted. And we need guidance in separating from our technology dependence. The digital detox concept has evolved to chaperone people through the process of separating from technology and to encourage more engagement with the real world, ideally in a beautiful and supportive space. In the digital detox setting, all participants commit to setting aside their devices and opening up to real-life engagement.

Spent an incredible week at this magnificent resort earlier this month. What an amazing place to get away from it all. The villas are incredibly designed with comfort & spaciousness being the top priority. The hospitality by the entire team from the Resort Manager Matthias & Executive Chef Valero right on down to every staff member exceeded my expectations in every way. Thanks for taking such great care of us. I will definitely be back.

This was my first trip to Thailand and I was worried in case I had missed the boat on the Thailand of old. I should not have worried. This small, intimate and friendly five star resort is the most perfect position on a spectacular stretch of beach at Pak Nampran Bay. The emphasis on sustainability and doing things in a green and eco fashion makes you feel like you are also doing your bit. As a passionate foodie, I loved the fact that the menu is created from produce organically grown at the eco farm a few kilometres away. The menu tells you how far each dish has travelled to reach your table. One of my favorite moments was waking up to watch the sunrise from the comfort of my huge squishy bed, which overlooked the beach. Each afternoon, someone delivers a beautiful tray of fresh canapes to your room. You can even choose what time you would like to enjoy happy hour! It's rare to find a high end hotel with such a down to earth, friendly vibe and most importantly of all, a very clear and passionate social conscience. Please keep on doing what you are doing, please don't change. I'll be back and thank you for an unforgettable stay.

My husband and I spent part of our honeymoon on your premises from December 5 to December 12, 2016. Our stay at Aleenta was absolutely fantastic and felt way too short! We enjoyed your kind hospitality, the extraordinary food, the facilities, the massages and the view we had from our room to the fullest. My husband and I are experienced travellers but we have hardly come across such friendliness, kindness and willingness as from you to make our holidays so special and unique. We will surely come back and already miss you a lot. Thank you so very much again!

An amazing experience! We were a large group for a wedding and it was such a nice experience. I actually ended up sleeping on hammock. The food was really good, and all the service was amazing.
