An American entrepreneur is opening a 'women-only' holiday retreat on an artificial island in Finland where no man will be allowed. The 'SuperShe' island is currently under construction and is being marketed as an 'ultra-luxe and health-focused' island.

Its founder Kristina Roth said she came up with the idea because she thought men were a distraction to female visitors.

Roth, a former CEO of a consultancy business, came up with the idea of a 'women-only island after going on holistic retreats in the U.S. where she found that men were a distraction to the female visitors.

SuperShe 8.4-acre Island will house ten guest cabins, a spa, and various adventure activities. There will be daily cooking and fitness courses available, along with yoga and meditation classes, but Roth plans to add whatever other activities women find appealing.

According to a recent SuperShe press-release, "women need to spend time with other women. Being on vacation with men can be draining and demanding. We want SuperShe Island to be rejuvenating and a safe space where women can go to reinvent themselves and their desires. A place where you can recalibrate with no distractions."

Roth said, "Our goal is to create a utopia where women can come together to care for themselves through fitness, nutrition, creativity nurturing and more." "The opening of our Finnish island will help us create a physical space that is open throughout the year for ladies to recharge," she added.

Roth insists that there is no 'man-hating' behind the women-only policy and that in future, she has no problem with male guests, but the island will first and foremost be for SuperShe community members and women of a similar ilk.
