When it's time to go on vacation, the majority of us go away to escape reality for a week or two and take the time to relax and do absolutely nothing.

Choosing the perfect hotel can often take a lot of time as, let's face it, there's nothing worse than being in a foreign country and being dropped off at a 2 star hotel, right?

But what about women out there who want to stay in a hotel that is exclusive for women only?

According to the Travel Industry Association, 32 million American women travel alone every year, despite this being such a risky endeavor.

A number of highly publicized incidents have underscored the risks that come with women traveling alone. This includes the murder of a twenty-six-year-old German backpacker in Thailand earlier this year, the brutal assault on a woman at a hotel in the Dominican Republic in January, and the beheading of 2 Scandanavian hikers in Morocco last year.

Journalists, Asher and Lyric Fergusson, created a Women’s Danger Index, which ranks the world’s most dangerous countries for women traveling alone.

Speaking to Forbes, Lyric Ferguson said: "While traveling as a couple we've experienced some uncomfortable situations and we've heard horror stories from many solo female travelers." "Rather than relying on hearsay and anecdotes, we thought it would be good to know which countries are the worst and safest based on hard facts."

Factors that affect women were taken into consideration...

The index is ranked from the fifty most popular countries for tourism and uses the following 8 factors: street safety for women, intentional homicide of women, non-partner sexual violence, intimate partner violence, legal discrimination, global gender gap, gender inequality index, and violence against women attitudes.

Women shouldn't have to rely on an index in order to enjoy a vacation...

It seems barbaric that women simply cannot travel the way that they please because of threats posed by men, but it is currently a sad reality and too many women traveling alone have lost their lives at the hands of cruel individuals.

Especially as the rates of assault are sky-rocketing among tourists staying in hotels, a lot of women simply don't feel comfortable knowing that complete strangers can easily gain access to their rooms.

So what about a hotel exclusively for women?

It offers a luxurious getaway location for women aged fourteen up, and, according to the website, it 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."

The hotel is equipped with thirty-nine rooms, free WiFi, a pool, a wellness area, a bar lounge, and a "unique atmosphere designed for women."

The hotel is open to all women: whether that's solo travelers, couples, families, or larger groups of friends.

Hotel Som Dona focuses on a healthy lifestyle.

One of the hotel’s major focuses is its local and flexitarian gastronomy, offering up "a sensory experience of local and international cuisine created with seasonal products." They call it the "perfect balance between healthy and delicious food" – meaning no junk food!

The hotel offers well-lit spaces and "female-friendly" environments...

The stunning bedrooms come equipped with an ocean-view and essentials such as hairdryers, straighteners, and anti-fog mirrors. Guests can also enjoy massages, body beauty treatments, a whirlpool, solarium, and library.

The only exception in regards to the "no men" thing is the employees...

This is in line with Spanish gender discrimination laws - men are still hired by the hotel, but Som Dona hires women wherever possible.

The hotel wants to focus on female equality.

According to Som Hotel's president, Joan Enric Capellá, surveys showed that women were keen on the idea of an exclusive hotel, just for them. "One of our objectives is also to give a certain visibility to women doing traditionally masculine jobs," she said.

It seems that female-only hotels are becoming more and more popular...

Of course, not all women feel uncomfortable sharing a hotel with male guests. But, for those who do, hotels such as Som Dona are the perfect environments to be spending a relaxing vacation in.
