Meet our core values
In search of new hospitality. Places that redefine how we slow down.
Slowdown Hotels features the concepts that are sustainable and have engraved in their core DNA the values that we hold at the highest, upon which we have based the criteria to include the hotels and experiences in our boutique collection.
Resorts that care for the environment and care for nature. Hotels that, as well as their managers and owners, introduce their guests to a new culture and forge friendships, carefully selected wellness programs that awaken the mind and the body. It is not necessary to travel only to avoid the stress of everyday life.
Voyage also helps the traveler to ditch the routines, the familiar, the habits, the established perception of self, the normal tastes and preferences; the voyage is supposed to affect all our senses, all our being, to help us evolve into the best version of ourselves, to enrich our perspective of the world. At Slowdown Hotels, we promote well carefully designed and selected locations that go above and beyond the “clean and beautiful” and offer something original, give a new perspective to your thoughts, open new horizons, and, above all, encourage us to relax and thoroughly regenerate our body and mind.
"Slow down your time"
Beyond the experience.
A voyage is a cultural, personal, and spiritual challenge, a wake-up call to the soul.
Traveling is a journey and the people one meets along the way. New friends. Technology is certainly evolving, but alluring and genuine experiences cannot be replaced by any application, that promises to conjure up a new digital reality.
Ebb and flow, slow and mellow, enhances the experience of the journey. Slowdown Hotels intertwines nature, culture, flavors, design, art, music, and new wellness-related concepts that positively influence our well-being and health.
Health, since well-being represents our highest value. All we truly have is our health. When we feel healthy, we are filled with creative energy, with life force. This is also a time we turn ourselves towards concepts that support and innovatively promote health. Such concepts feature natural building materials, offer quality personal care products, and put on the table organic foods that are ideally grown locally. These concepts are designed not to place an unnecessary burden on the environment by merging with it and forming a symbiotic relationship with their natural surroundings.
Nature to us represents the original environment that we came from and should live in harmony with and know well. To live in harmony with pristine, untouched, raw nature is what defines us as sentient beings. Nature is where we find tranquillity and peace. Nature nourishes us and gives us life.
Balance is what allows us to cultivate the best version of ourselves. This happens when we find something that motivates and revitalizes us to help us stay focused and maintain a flow of the mind that leads to balance. After a prolonged period of stress, a longer period of relaxation is also needed, and constantly maintaining our inner balance is crucial for personal fulfillment. Good sleep, balanced and healthy diet, exercise, and relaxation are fundamental for maintaining a well-balanced functioning of the body. When on vacation, it is important to get enough sleep, since our body and mind regenerate best when we sleep. Vacation is supposed to be relaxing; the things we seldom indulge ourselves in at home, acquire some sort of a luxury status – this is sometimes true also for deep sleep, necessary for intensive regeneration.
Experience is what in our opinion allows us to grow, evolve and better ourselves. Experience allows us to advance faster than watching thousands of movies. Experiences form and define us. They awaken the passions and invigorate the soul. They are the most effective method of learning.
We understand design as a discipline, as a science about the inner working of things and the way we use them. Design is an idea, a well-thought-out form that has a positive influence on our perception of the space and the resort as a whole. Design carefully guides us to well-being and relaxation through concepts.
Wellness is an important discipline, focused on well-being and feeling relaxed. Wellness is an experience of relaxation and comfort that is beneficial for the health of our body and mind.
