The resort will keep a guest’s iPhone for 24 hours or more in a safe deposit box and then afterwards, they’ll return it with one of four new custom phone covers (for the 4S and 5 models) from a company called Uncommon.
The five designs include:
A sunset scene
A tropical forest scene
A leaping white-faced monkey (capuchin), which is commonly seen around the resort
A father and son kayaking on the Papagayo Peninsula
In the meantime, while they’re unplugged, the hotel will give guests a guide of “24 Things to Do Without Technology at Four Seasons Resort Costa Rica”. On the list? The trendy SUP (stand-up paddleboarding), heading to the spa for a treatment, looking for the indigenous blue morpho butterflies in the garden, or doing simply—nothing.
We’d love to know how many people sign up for the program, and how many panic in the 12th hour, which would give even more weight to our recent rant on travel and technology.
You can disconnect right now at the Four Seasons starting at $450 per night.
