Hillside Beach Club: Luxury Turkish Resort helps guests find elusive tech/life balance

By Melanie Kruger on 10th September 2015

In the current technological age, switching off can be almost impossible. Not only do we depend heavily on smartphones, tablets and other such gadgets to keep our working lives in check, but we’re increasingly using them to organise our social time, too – and as long as they remain on standby, relaxation remains firmly out of reach.

But a five star holiday resort in Turkey might have just the right prescription for the tech-tired this Autumn, as the Hillside Beach Club in Fethiye prepares to go all-out to help stressed guests find that elusive tech/life balance.

Set in a stunning hillside location with a secluded, private bay on Turkey’s beautiful Aegean coast, the Hillside Beach Club is set to offer guests an enticing selection of indulgent spa treatments, beachside yoga and other relaxing pursuits – all without the stresses of modern technology.

But unlike other retreats where electronic devices are strictly prohibited, Hillside understands that a complete digital detox is neither helpful nor feasible for busy and sought-after guests.

The resort’s unique Beach Club App means guests can plan each day’s schedule upon waking, making spa and activity reservations online on their laptops, tablets or smartphones – but once itineraries are in order, they are encouraged to leave electronic devices shut safely away in hotel rooms in order to enjoy a relaxing and restful day.

The resort offers a selection of activities to help guests to truly zone out and immerse themselves in all that the destination has to offer, including daily sunrise yoga sessions, a Sanda Nature Spa Lemon and Honey Facial and Nature Spa Stone Therapy. Other options include trekking, mountain biking and jeep safaris or, for those in search of some alone-time, quiet reading sessions in tranquil surroundings.

Cocooning visitors in contemporary comfort, the hotel’s private rooms are staggered up verdant mountainous slopes and around the picturesque cove.

The retreat serves as the  perfect compromise for those in pursuit of a digital detox without committing for a whole week, and with late Mediterranean sunshine and stunning surroundings to take advantage of, there couldn’t be a better way to go about it.

With an enviable climate from April through to October, the Hillside Beach Club is just an hour’s journey from Dalaman Airport, and is now accessible from London Gatwick with British Airways.
