No Men Are Allowed At This Spanish Hotel And It’s Fabulous

By Leah Freeman-Haskin


Safety is always a concern for women traveling alone. Although the benefits of solo travel are great, many women don’t feel safe enough to make it happen. A hotel in Majorca, Spain is trying to put some of those concerns to rest with their ‘no men allowed’ policy. Som Dona Hotel, near Porto Cristo, is the first hotel in Spain to cater exclusively to women and girls over 14 years old.

According to the website, the hotel is “a new space for women who are looking to disconnect from the stress of daily life that offers personalized care tailored to their needs.” Every detail of the hotel is designed with women in mind from their spa and wellness options to the innovative artistic concepts of each room.

Additional amenities and options include live music, an outdoor pool, a wellness area, a bar lounge, local and flexitarian gastronomy, a solarium, a library, and more. The location of the hotel is also convenient to local points of interest including beaches, cave tours, and shopping.

Due to discrimination laws in the country, the hotel does employ men, but the strict ‘no men allowed’ policy restricts guests from having men in their hotel rooms. The hotel has 39 rooms in total, all of which are reasonably priced from $80 to $176 per night (including breakfast).
