Many of us go on vacations to unwind and relax but it’s often difficult to disconnect from smartphones and electronic devices even when we’re on vacation. A luxury resort in Bali, Indonesia wants to help you do that and also ensure that your phone doesn’t disturb other guests who just want to relax by the pool. For that reason, the five-star Ayana Resort & Spa has banned smartphones and other electronic devices from one of its pools.
As part of its “In the Moment” campaign, the resort is encouraging guests to disconnect entirely and enjoy their downtime the good old fashioned way. It’s doing this in order to create a “haven for guests.”
The resort will enforce this ban on smartphones and electronic devices at the River Pool between 9 AM to 5 PM. Signage will be put up around the pool informing users that these devices are not allowed. Lockers will be offered so that guests can keep their devices secure while they relax by the pool.
“The ethos of the River Pool is to create a place of tranquillity, where our guests can truly relax,” Ayana Resort & Spa told Lonely Planet News, adding that “Our intention is to preserve who we are by valuing human connection and me-time.” The resort has even created a cocktail called “In the Moment” to further elevate guests’ tech-free pool experience.
