We are submersed in a world where marketers define that having more things and doing more things equal happiness. We constantly are trained to seek happiness externally. If we have a bigger car, a bigger house, or more houses, then we’d be happier.
Traditional hotels are also the same. The hotel industry has set a standard for five star, four star, three star ratings for hotels based on amenities they provide. If you don’t have a swimming pool in your hotel, it is not possible to be a four or five star hotel. Coming back to think about it, can’t a hotel still offer 5 star quality service and product without the pool?
We are used to staring at a computer screen during work, stare at our smartphones in between breaks and during commute, stare at the TV when we are back home, and stare at the smartphone again before falling to sleep. And then when we wake up again, we stare at the smartphone again.
Often times we became so lost in this busy world that is constantly bombarding our senses, that we forget a simple truth – Simple is Bliss, Bliss is Simple.
Listen to the birds chirp in the morning.
Breathe in fresh air.
Feel the breeze.
Watch the sun set.
Taste herbs and vegetable freshly picked from the garden.
Connect with another human face to face. A smile is no longer an emoji but an actual smile.
At Museflower, we want to remind our guests how the simplest things can bring us the biggest joy.
When we are stripped away of all the entertainment – the TV, the internet, the smartphone, do we know how to spend our down time?
When we are stripped away from air-conditioning, do our bodies still know how to regulate our body temperature?
When everything external is only a reflection of our inner world, then are we quiet enough to listen to what our inner self is saying to us?
At Museflower, you will not find a TV nor WiFi in your room. There is no IPOD dock, nor radio. There is no telephone, nor a working desk.
Museflower Retreat & Spa is a space where city people who feel stressed, disconnected and tired can slow down, recharge, and learn to reconnect to themselves again starting by reconnecting with nature.
Look at the stars in the night sky is more high definition than any HD TV.
Listen to the thunderstorm gives you better surround sound than home theatre.
Leave your room to speak to a person face-to-face gives you more reason to exercise.
Give yourself the time and space to feel your inner being – smiling, crying, inspired.
In Museflower, we want to remind how simple BLISS can be.
This is a place to BE the TRUE You.
