We all talk about disconnecting on our vacations, about taking a break from work, from social media, from the hustle and bustle.
And while more hotels are starting to offer “digital detox” programs, one Aruba resort is actually rewarding travelers who do so.
The 414-room Aruba Marriott just launched a new option for guests to earn rewards by disconnecting from their phones during their vacations.
Guests can leave their phones at the oceanfront property’s front desk, where they will be held securely in a safety box.
In exchange, they will receive a disposable camera to use to capture memories from their trip.
And that’s when the challenge begins.
If guests are able to make it through the majority of their stay without retrieving their phone, they’re rewarded with 5,000 Marriott Bonvoy points to use for a future Marriott stay.
Do you think you could do it?
