QT Hotels & Resorts launches Digital Detox Program
QT Hotels & Resorts, the leading design hotel collection in Australia and New Zealand, is offering to take charge of guests’ devices with the launch of Power Down, the brand’s first digital detox package. The package will have guests hand over devices for a self-imposed, minimum 12-hour break from screen time by encouraging guests to disconnect with a little self-care – because sometimes, the most important function on a smartphone is the “Off” switch.
Whether guests are losing hours to mindless scrolling on Instagram, suffering burn-out from too many emails or just sick of being spammed with former schoolmates’ baby photos, the Power Down package offers guests the chance to truly log off. QT Hotels staff will take care of participating guest’s phones from 7pm to 7am, while they unwind with a range of mindful extras, including complimentary in-room “wellness bowls,” juices, supplements or wine and cheese at one of QT’s award-winning bars.
The special in-room wellness bowl menu includes: a Sea and Omega Bowl (sushi rice, grilled miso-glazed salmon, pickled ginger, edamame, crispy shallots, avocado, toasted sesame, wakame-coriander-mint salad, wasabi ponzu dressing and togarashi seasoning); the Essential Clean Tummy Greens Bowl (broccoli, edamame, zucchini noodles, romesco, spinach, avocado, cashews, organic ginger, black sesame seeds and orange dressing); and a Ferment and Nourish Bowl (black wild rice, smoked hummus, cumin-spiced cauliflower and pumpkin, white pickled sauerkraut, fresh pomegranate, vegan falafel, mint and sumac).
Adam Petta, Group Director of Culinary at Event Hospitality and Entertainment, QT Hotels’ parent company, explained: “QT Hotels truly caters to the eating habits of all travelers – from the early risers to late-night munchers and those who miss a home-cooked meal. It’s in-room dining with a fun and healthy twist – like our Plane Food Energy Box with two boiled free-range sumac eggs, bran muffin, raw cashews, smashed avocado, Pepe Saya butter, warm brioche bun and cultured yogurt drink – without sacrificing on guests’ favorite guilty pleasures including our Not So Classic Club. Our talented restaurant team uses the best locally and sustainably sourced products from Australia’s most innovative producers.”
Additional handpicked in-room wellness gifts will help support guests throughout their device blackout, including Beauty Chef’s GLOW powder to boost gut health and glowing skin, Addition Studio’s Bath Brew giant tea bag for the bath, a Protein Ball courtesy of Luv Sum and a yoga mat from lululemon to practice anything from Sirsasana to Savasana.
Guests will also have access to a QT Wellness Guru to fend off nomophobia (the fear of being without one’s mobile phone) and keep the mind, body and spirit operating at full charge. If guests are still feeling a little lost without their phone, they can get reacquainted with themselves or a friend by socializing in QT’s award-winning bars with complimentary wine and cheese.
QT’s Power Down package is available at all QT Hotels & Resorts in Australia (Sydney, Bondi Beach, Melbourne, Gold Coast, Canberra and Perth) and New Zealand (Wellington and Queestown) from now until October 14, 2020.
