Digital detox boxes

At Luxury Family Hotels, we’re all about quality family time together – which is why we’re delighted to announce the introduction of our Digital Detox Boxes, whereby guests can ditch their devices in exchange for a wicker hamper packed with family fun to enjoy during their stay.

How does it work? On arrival at a hotel, parents need to request a box, which are available on a first-come first-served basis and contain items that aren't available in the rest of the hotel. They include a variety of games for different ages, both indoor and outdoor, things for families to do together, and something to learn. They also feature one trail or game specific to the individual hotel, and ready-stamped hotel postcards so kids can tell family or friends or about their stay. They may also include a ‘voucher’ to hand into the Den crèche/kids’ club in order to receive something that won’t fit in the box – perhaps a den-building kit.

Meanwhile, parents will hand in their devices and sign them over to us – although we are happy to give them back in an A4 envelope when the kids aren’t looking if you’d rather not let us hang onto them!

Things you might expect to find in your Digital Detox Box:

  • Barefoot Coaching cards
  • Charades
  • Bumper Book of Family Games
  • Juggling balls
  • Skipping rope
  • Dobble card game
  • Story Cubes
  • Roald Dahl joke book
  • Origami papers
  • Hotel trail
  • Hotel postcards
  • Voucher to trade in at the Den
