Our story

We're on a mission to help people get offline and into nature more regularly

We're Hector and Ben

Pals, co-founders, and believers that the world, and everyone on it, would be happier and more productive if we dedicated time to going offline for a few days each year.

Unplugging should be easy and accessible. That’s why we created Unplugged - to help the always-on, switch off.

We were victims of burn out

We worked hard, but also played hard. Working together at a tech startup, we were clocking up 11 hours of screen time a day. The result? We burnt out. 

So Hector escaped to The Himalayas

With a growing frustration of the inability to switch off, Hector spent 2 weeks at a silent retreat in the mountains. 

He spent his time meditating, doing chores and contemplating the meaning of life. Upon his return, feeling completely recharged and refocused, he quit his job on Monday. 

And Ben wanted a bit of that zen...quickly.

Ben is far less zen and you wouldn’t find him meditating with monks any time soon. However, seeing Hector return completely recharged, we thought…"How can we get busy city folk to unplug from their devices and recharge without flying halfway around the globe?"

And so in 2020, Unplugged was born

We decided to build beautiful off-grid cabins just outside of city life that take less than an hour or two to get to. 

We've made it easy to escape the city crowds and mindless scrolling and access the ancient remedy of nature. 

Since, we've helped over 5,000 guests unplug

Our unique cabins have been a home away from phone for thousands of busy folk to switch off and recharge, 

And now here we are - launching our first cabin in Spain!

When we met Sam and Estel, the owners of the beautiful estate in Catalunya, we knew their spot in the Pyrenees was the perfect spot for our European expansion. 

THE UNPLUGGED WAY

Unique off-grid cabins to connect with nature

Our cabins are designed to include everything you need, and nothing you don't. Our iconic picture window next to the bed brings nature indoors.

About the cabin

BUILT FOR DIGITAL DETOX

With no wifi or technology

In the modern world, we've slowly switched from green time to screen time. 

Unplugged cabins give you a space to intentionally go offline for a 3 or 4 night digital detox, to bring you closer to nature and make you feel human again.
