Most travelers want to get away when they travel, but how far away is too far?


If you prefer to stay fully connected to your family and friends while traveling, you may not want to stay at a tech-free resort. However, if you desire such a level of privacy and peace, you may want to book a room at one of several resorts now offering unplugged atmospheres, TV-free suites and a “petite resort” setting that prioritizes intimacy and “meditative spirit” over WiFi and Instagram feeds.

Auric Road offers three such petite resorts.


Lone Mountain Ranch in Big Sky, Montana, offers near-endless ways to enjoy Yellowstone Park, including all-access park tours, fly fishing, horseback riding, skiing and more. Meals and activities are included in most stay bundles. You’ll have your pick of more than two dozen historic log cabins, ranging from one to six bedrooms.

Meanwhile, Hotel Joaquin in Laguna Beach, offers a chic setting on the ocean, giving you an island vibe but without the need to pack your passport.
