The award-winning Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong introduces the Digital Wellness Escape, a luxurious retreat designed to encourage guests to embark on a digital escape from constant connectivity and focus on their wellbeing.
Guests enjoy a reprieve from the bustling Hong Kong metropolis with sumptuous accommodation at the legendary hotel and a visit to The Mandarin Spa for a 90-minute detox treatment during their stay. Mobile devices are encouraged to remain in guest rooms to minimize online distractions.
The Spa treatment commences with a foot steam using ancient shungite stones that absorb negative energy, anxiety and depression. During this, guests can choose to learn to prepare their own organic face mask with ingredients such as oatmeal, yogurt and mocha or simply enjoy the silence.
With a focus on grounding both the body and mind, the face mask is applied and the massage experience then concentrates on the head, eyes, neck, shoulders and back to provide a calming and peaceful respite to alleviate the stress of the outside world.
Before and after the treatment, guests are invited to the spa lounge to enjoy a range of non-digital activities such as Jenga, Rubik’s cubes and mindful colouring or to relax and meditate. Guests are presented with a Mandarin Oriental Power Protein Smoothie to recharge and homecare booklet featuring wellness tips and advice as a reminder on the importance of taking time for reflection.
“In today’s fast-paced and technology-charged society, the new norm is to always be connected. This constant distraction interrupts focus, concentration and social settings and we created this programme to support our guests with finding a healthier balance in their daily lives” said Spa Director Karen Aleksich.
