A new digital detox (de-tech) holiday is being launched in St Vincent and The Grenadines as consumer research reveals that 77% of people believe that time without gadgets and technology would liberate them, improve their relationships, make them a better person and give them more time for their loved ones.
So great is the need for help, that a new de-tech holiday is being launched in St Vincent and The Grenadines by bespoke travel company Black Tomato. The holiday is designed to completely wean people off their technology -- literally going cold-turkey on the beach. It includes a guide to "de-teching" and a session with a life-coach (www.createyourself.co.uk) before jetting off to the idyllic islands that have no TVs in the rooms and discourage the use of technology on their stunning beaches. Those who have less self-discipline but deeper pockets can take the lifecoach with them for daily counselling sessions and to guide and support them through the process.
The launch of the new detech holiday should be welcomed by the 17.2 % of consumers who said their New Year's resolution will be to go on an amazing holiday or become less dependent on technology. The seven night holiday includes three nights at Young Island and four nights at Palm Island in St Vincent and The Grenadines on a full-board basis, flights, private transfers including a private catamaran transfer between islands, a printed version of the detech guide to take with you and a one-hour session with a life-coach before leaving. Prices from £2,967 per person based on two-sharing. For the full de-tech experience, take a lifecoach with you for an additional £8,943.
