The 'Digital Detox Days' have been designed to invite guests to be fully in the moment without any distractions.

Numerous studies suggest adults are becoming overly attached to their electronic devices. According to stats published by Time to Log Off, UK adults spend an average of eight hours and 41 minutes per day on their screens, over half of our waking hours.

Those behind the initiative have said putting away all digital devices during the spa experience is thought to have a number of benefits including a calmer mind, sounder sleep, stress alleviation and improved overall wellness.

This is Harrogate's newest buzz phrase but what does it meanSarah Johnson, Rudding Park Spa Manager, said: “The smartphone has almost become an extension of the human hand – an accessory so essential you feel lost without it. Having been voted one of the most ‘Instagrammable’ spas in the country we understand the power of user-generated content and guests love to share their pictures of the spa experience with their social media followers, however, it is not for everyone so we wanted to dedicate a day each month where guests can relax without any digital distractions.”

Guests can experience the Roof Top Spa and Garden without any distractions this spring including taking a dip in the warming waters of the hydrotherapy pool and relaxing on the sun deck.
