Sleep lounge encourages guests to switch off

With the majority of the UK population guilty of spending too much time on their smartphones, a Staffordshire spa has devised a concept prohibiting the use of technological devices and aiding relaxation.

Moddershall Oaks Country Spa Retreat aims to encourage guests to switch off from the outside world with its new Sleep Lounge, a tranquil safe space designed for optimum rest.

The Zen space offers low level mood lighting, spa loungers and egg-shaped pods, while visitors can also seek comfort by the warmth of the central fire. Calming scents from the lounge's luxurious reed diffuser have been added to assist in alleviating the stresses of daily life.

This addition comes as data from The Guardian reveals that the average person in the UK spends more than three hours a day on their smartphone, with this enhanced usage thought to affect sleep quantity and quality.
