What appears to be a regular boutique hotel on the surface is actually an ideal destination for women.

The most exclusive of our list, SuperShe Island is strictly for women only. This private island off the coast of Finland in the Baltic Sea is just over eight acres. It can handle up to 10 people in four cabins. The island also features spa amenities including Finnish saunas.


Whether you are seeking a retreat or traveling solo, SuperShe Island has something to offer every woman. Daily wellness activities led by fellow SuperShe’s such as yoga, meditation, farm-to-table dining, cooking classes, fitness classes, nature activities, and so much more.


You’ll need to apply for a membership to the SuperShe Society to qualify for a visit to the Island. As it launches in June 2018, you may have a bit of a wait, but it will be well worth it.

As we first started seeing in 2007, women-focused travel was a new trend. Today, however, we’re reaping the benefits of what was once thought to be a trend. So, tell us, will you be planning a vacation to one of our women-focused travel destinations? For more great options for a retreat-style vacation, read Meditative Retreats: Where to Go to Recharge.
