If you’re dreaming of staring at scenery instead of a screen, these far-flung resorts could be just the ticket

Torfhus Retreat, Iceand

Set in the heart of the Golden Circle, this eco-luxury resort runs entirely on geothermal and hydroelectric sustainable energy. Settle into one of the cosy cabins and enjoy views over volcanic plains to snow-capped mountains and the Langjökull glacier beyond.

Amankora, Bhutan             

Comprised of five lodges (home to 76 contemporary rustic suites) strategically dotted around the valleys and surrounded by forests and orchards, Amankora calls those seeking a complete holistic and cultural immersion. Guided activities change with the seasons – sign up for the herb-infused hot stone bath at Paro and the meditation in Punakha.

Jade Mountain Resort, St. Lucia                      

Add a dash of romance to your offline hideaway at this striking Caribbean retreat. With vast suites basking in the spellbinding views of the Pitons, unobstructed ocean vistas, and minimal electronics available, it brings the disconnect to reconnect concept to life.

Miraval Austin, USA                

A haven for wellness, this resort offers transformative experiences that’ll teach you how to restore balance to your life through a curated itinerary incorporating activities such as vasudhara, which combines the feeling of being weightless in the water with Thai massage. You’ll find a ‘sleeping bag’ for your mobile phone on your bedside table. 

Nimmo Bay Wilderness Resort, British Columbia 

Offering serenity, adventure and luxury in equal measure,  this family-owned resort stands amid masses of unblemished beauty in the Great Bear Rainforest. Cabins are devoid of TVs and you can spend your days kayaking, paddleboarding or keeping an eye out for orca and humpback whales.
