In a world full of every technical device imaginable—from cell phones, Blackberries and flip cams to iPods, iPhones and iPads—it seems almost impossible to escape our digital society. But taking the road less traveled, St. Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG) is challenging travelers to a digitally-free vacation to its beautiful 32-isle nation. SVG is teaming up with travel company Black Tomato to create a “Digital Detox”-tailored trip, enabling consumers to trade in their virtual vacations for an unplugged one. Yes, that means actually experiencinga real vacation with human interaction, social skills, and quality time with family and friends.
The SVG and Black Tomato “Digital Detox” trip is designed to completely wean people off their technology – literally going cold-turkey on the beach. It includes a guidebook on how to digitally remove oneself (“de-tech”) before jetting off to SVG’s idyllic Young Island and Palm Island resorts. The seven-night getaway is US$3,799 per person including flights from NYC, three nights at Young Island and four nights at Palm Island, and a private crewed catamaran day transfer.
The launch of the “Digital Detox” campaign coincides with recent survey findings indicating that:
- 77 percent of consumers believe that time spent without gadgets and technology would actually liberate them, improve their relationships, make them a better person, and give them more time for their loved ones.
- Approximately 17 percent of consumers said their New Year’s resolutions will be to go on an amazing vacation or to become less dependent on technology.
