A new hotel has opened on the Spanish island of Mallorca that has managed to ban male guests.
That’s right, folks, its a hotel geared towards women that only allows women to stay within its walls, which, we assume, is a delightful concept to a majority of the female population.
The Soma Dona Hotel is a four-star resort located on the Manacor coast offering “comfort, relaxation, art, healthy living and Mediterranean flavour”, according to its website, which also claims it is the first hotel exclusively for women aged 14 plus.
“With bold decoration inspired by feminine features, this modern, functional and unique hotel in Porto Cristo guarantees a truly relaxing vacation on the seashore surrounded by nature,” the website said.
“At this hotel, you can enjoy the best healthy cuisine made with “zero-kilometer” products, a wellness area, a pool, free WiFi, comfortable rooms, a bar lounge and a unique atmosphere designed for women.”
There are 39 rooms in total, priced between $137 and $275, which seems fairly reasonable seeing as the only catch is that guests can’t bring back any male suitors.
However, due to Spanish anti-discrimination laws, the hotel does employ some male staff, according to NZ Herald, but the law says nothing about excluding male guests so in that respect, it is still considered female only.
Insider reported the hotel welcomes women of all sexual orientations and is perfect for girls groups, mother-daughter retreats and female solo travellers.
A spokesperson for the hotel told Insider the hotels facilities, from the red and white colour scheme to the pool are “specifically designed for women’s needs.”
Research from Ampersand travel shows that 67 per cent of solo travellers are women and Google searches for the phrase “solo female travel” hit an all-time peak of 100 million searches last year.
Not to mention, Pinterest has also noted a 350 per cent increase in women pinning solo travel ideas since 2014.
