Travel Trend: Digital Detox at Fort Young Hotel

When it comes to recharging the mind, body and soul, a detox is often the most beneficial way to do so. But not just any detox—a digital detox. As of recent, there’s been a substantial trend in luxury travel to do just this. As millennials grow increasingly reliant on their smart devices, they’re actually seeking experiences to withdraw from the constraints of modern society. Luckily, at Fort Young Hotel, this desire for a digital detox is simply inherent in the nature of the island.

Enriched Experiences

The most meaningful and rewarding way to get off the grid is by exploring nature. And, there’s perhaps no better place in the world to rediscover your childlike wonder than in Dominica. The island is renowned for its abundance of hidden treasures that lie within the lush landscape, and at Fort Young Hotel you have a front-row seat to it all. Offering 365 rivers, deep canyons beneath an overflowing rainforest, a number of high-altitude lakes and a volcanic National Park, Dominica makes it incredibly effortless to put down your phone and reconnect with the earth.
