Mindfulness – or mindful meditation – is all the rage right now and it looks set to stay that way. What better way to cash in on the trend than by opening a ‘mindful hotel’?

Such cynicism isn’t very mindful, of course; so that’s why we’re nothing but excited for the opening of Eremito, a new hotel in Umbria, which has already been snapped up by Design Hotels.

An eco-resort owned by fashion designed Marco Murzilli, it’s a simple place – “eremito” means “hermitage” in Italian, and the place has the ascetic feel of a monastery (it was built from scratch, but using 13th-century masonry techniques). There are just 14, pared back rooms based on monk cells – whitewashed walls, arches, no extraneous décor, sheets made of hemp, definitely no minibars. There’s no connectivity – no internet, no phone, no TV, no business center. There’s even no coupling – rooms are strictly for single occupancy. (If you're wanting to come as part of a couple, they suggest you book adjoining cells.)

Zening, in Cyprus

You know a detox break is going to be too grueling for ordinary mortals when it sends a supermodel running for the hills before their stay is up; and by all accounts, that’s what happened when Kate Moss recently visited the LifeCo in Turkey (she apparently turned up drunk at Bodrum airport and jumped straight on an EasyJet flight back to London).

For once, there’s a brilliant rundown of exactly what to expect from the LifeCo in the Daily Mail (no, we can’t believe we said that either).

But if tongue scraping, a cryosauna (don’t ask) and The Angel (definitely don’t ask) seem a bit too intense, fear not. Here are four of our favorite detox places in Europe:

Hotels Help You Kick Butt During Lung Cancer Awareness Month

November 5, 2012 at 5:23 PM | by | ()

While hotels had plenty of seemingly self-serving and more cutesy-than-caring promotions for October's Breast Cancer Month, many are taking a more serious and hands-on approach during November's Lung Cancer Awareness Month.

Hotels across the globe are opening their doors and inviting guests to take a proactive approach to end their smoking habits once and for all and reduce their chances of lung cancer, which, according to the Lung Cancer Alliance, "is the deadliest cancer in the world that takes more lives than breast, colon, pancreatic and prostate cancer combined."

Is quitting smoking on your New Year's resolution list? A trip to the UK might be in order.

  Site Where: 25, Rue du Grand-Prieuré, Paris, France, France, 75011

Even if you binge on Cabernet Sauvignon and gorge too much on rich Camembert and Brie while in Paris, you won't have to abandon your resolution to get fit in '10. You can kick-start your plan at the Hôtel Gabriel Paris Marais, the City of Light's first detox hotel.

Don't worry, staying here won't be like an episode of Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew. Instead, the 40-room hotel takes a less invasive method of purging the toxins in your life—whether they be from stress, bad diet, sleeplessness or lack of exercise. The hotel focuses on creating a relaxing zen den where you can get some shut-eye.
