Spain’s First Women-Only Hotel Opens on Majorca

By Paul Joseph

The trend of women-only spaces continues unabated and the latest venue to restrict access to one gender can be found on the Spanish island of Majorca.

With female solo travel growing in popularity, the 4-star Som Dona Hotel has responded to this burgeoning movement by opening Spain’s first women-only residence, which is billed as offering a heady mix of “comfort, relaxation, art, healthy living and Mediterranean flavour.”

Featuring 39 rooms for women aged 14 and above, the interiors have been designed to suit a generic feminine taste, with classically applied pink, contemporary furnishing and gold lighting.

The hotel also features amenities typically favoured by women including a spa with a whirlpool tub and freeform pool and roof terrace/loungers, and there’s also a restaurant offering “flavourful, healthy and sustainable” dining options.

Double rooms at the hotel start at around $80 per night and packages include breakfast as well as other options such as spa treatments and other dining choices.

Som Dona Hotel is located in the small town of Porto Cristo on the eastern coast of Mallorca.
