Force yourself to put your phone on silent in the locker when you come to Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star Altira Spa (and don’t look at it); your body will thank you. Altira Spa asks that you put you phone on silent to maintain the peaceful atmosphere it has tried so hard to create. The spa’s goal is to create a peaceful and serene environment, and any distractions from your phone will deter from that experience — and why wouldn’t you want to completely indulge in a massage, facial or wrap? Not to mention, there’s not much space in your spa robe for a phone. Enjoy your time away from your cell while you’re at Altira Spa &msdash; you deserve it.
These days, it seems as if everyone’s cellphones are attached to the hip, but we want you to completely relax and escape during one of your treatments at Altira Spa. Before your appointment, perhaps when you’re waiting in the reception area filling out our informational forms or sipping your hot tea, be sure to set your cell phone to silent mode. Our goal at the spa is to create a peaceful and serene environment, and any distractions from your phone will deter from that experience. If you think you might get the urge to check your e-mail or send out a quick text, an even better idea is to leave your phone in your room. We’ve tried extremely hard to maintain a soothing respite for you and the rest of our guests, a place where technology is left behind and calmness takes over.
