The best hotels for a digital detox

Traveling light has never been as popular as it is today. By leaving a lot of (digital) stuff at home and staying at hotels that don’t offer too many distractions, you can feel more present. Here are some places that will help you travel light.

Parque Pedras Salgadas

The treehouses in the Pedras Salgadas Park in Portugal have two windows – one overlooking the park the other to see the stars. Architect Luís Rebelo de Andrade also kept sustainability and ecology in focus in the design phase, using environmentally friendly solutions, such as LED lighting, whenever possible.

Art Hotel Atelier 
Sul Mare

Around half of the 40 rooms at the Art Hotel Atelier Sul Mare in Sicily are “art rooms,” designed by internationally famous, artists. To make the most of the experience guests are encouraged to switch rooms during their stay. The rooms are often minimalistic, but the views of the sea aren’t.

Under (zero) stars

The creators of the Null Stern (zero stars) hotel now offer “Zero Real Estate – a room without walls or a roof” in several locations throughout Switzerland. The concept is as simple as the slogan. Guests sleep comfortably in a bed under the stars, with no walls or a roof. There is a butler though, which helps, and in case of rain, they do have a backup room with a roof.

The Juvet Hotel is located between the fjord Geiranger and the dramatic road Trollstigen.

Unlike the Zero Real Estate hotel, the landscape rooms at the Juvet Hotel, about 90 minutes by car from Ålesund, do have walls – but they’re made of glass, so you can enjoy the beautiful Norwegian outdoors.

Eden Project

After an exciting day walking through the two biomes at the Eden Project in Cornwall, it’s nice to crawl into the onsite hostel’s rooms made from recycled shipping containers. The rooms are compact but can easily host a family of four. While there’s no restaurant on the premises, the hostel cafeteria has snacks and a phone number to several local restaurants that deliver.
