In the spa relaxation rooms, guests can access a full range of mindfulness activities such as journalling, note-card writing, colouring, meditation or simply relaxing and enjoying the silence. There will also be a selection of curated spa retail offerings, ranging from crystals and eye masks to meditation pillows and a selection of calming teas and oils. All have been chosen to encourage mindfulness and digital disconnection.For those who wish to immerse themselves more fully, a Digital Detox Retreat can be booked. This 80-minute experience focuses on grounding both body and mind through the power of human touch, and is designed to provide a calming and peaceful respite from the outside world and the stress of repetitive movements. The treatment includes relaxation in an aromatic bath, followed by a massage that concentrates on the head, eyes, neck, shoulders, hands and feet.On departure, inspired by tips on how to achieve a more digitally balanced life, guests can reclaim their cleaned device from the spa, repackaged in its own protective digital shielding. To further support this new Digital Detox initiative, The Spas at Mandarin Oriental will again offer an annual Silent Night event for the holiday season.
