November 10, 2017 OTA News No Comments Email Email

No More Nomophobia With Getaways That Take You OfflineSince the advent of the smartphone and social media, Australians are always switched on. So much so, there is even a term for our addiction to our phones — nomophobia.

Escapes that are off the beaten track with limited or no WiFi access are becoming more popular; the agoda Travel and Tech Study found three-fifths of us want to travel to secluded and lesser known destinations.

Andrew Edwards, Global director for Brand and Communications at agoda says: “Digital Detox getaways are becoming popular across the world, with 77% of Aussies in our recent survey admitting they like to travel to escape from the stresses of life. While few and far between, there’s a variety of fantastic places on agoda for Aussies to go off the grid, and some where there is optional WiFi access from public areas, for those who want to wean themselves off their phones and internet at a slower pace.”

Thala Beach Nature Reserve & Lodge – Port Douglas, QLD

This secluded getaway is situated on a huge stretch of untouched coastline, where travelers can enjoy the private beach, poolside cocktails and massages. The only WiFi in sight is in reception.

Sal Salis Ningaloo Reef Hotel – Cape Range National Park, WA

Sal Salis is miles off the grid and is glamping at its very best; an exclusive safari camp in the sand dunes. You’ll can check-in at the bar but you won’t be able to ‘check-in’ online, making it a truly special offline experience.
