No Men Allowed at This Exclusive Island Fitness Getaway

A former business consultant named Kristina Roth is creating a health-conscious island resort—exclusively for women.

Aptly named SuperShe Island, the women-only destination is located off the coast of Finland and is a densely wooded area, dotted with cozy, minimally-decorated luxury cottages.

Roth got the idea after visiting luxury bootcamps at Ranch Malibu and the Ashram in Calabasas, California. Though she found these getaways rejuvenating, she noticed that whenever men were present, there was a distraction from the relaxation she desired.


In an interview with the New York Post she explained, "When there was a cute guy, women would put on lipstick. The idea [at SuperShe Island] is, 'hey, focus on yourself — don't try to get your hormones up.'"

Though not all women are of Roth's opinion:


Roth's vision goes further than just the retreat: "Wanna to be a SuperShe?" the SuperShe homepage asks, then goes on to describe the SuperShe mission:

SuperShe is a community. Connecting women across the world. Together we can achieve dreams. Together we can create change. SuperShe is different. Transforming dated ideas of networking. Exchanging conference rooms for Oahu. Ballrooms for Turks and Caicos. SuperShe is inspiring women. We provide tools to help women improve their lives and regain overall health through: fitness, beauty, fashion, sex, spirituality, and more.

Roth's island isn't quite open to the public yet, nevertheless she takes an annual SuperShe retreat with her friends. This year, six SuperShes went to Oahu, Hawaii.

Here's a clip of Roth explaining what it meant to her:


This clip from the Oahu retreat gives an idea of what it might be like on SuperShe Island, (though much colder since it's off the coast of Finland):


Roth found out about the island from a local she'd fallen in love with. She explained to the Post, "His parents own an island on the archipelago, and he kept telling me, the island next door is for sale. I said, I'm not interested, I just bought a beautiful piece of land in Turks and Caicos — I'm really not interested." But once she saw it Roth changed her mind.
The health-focused, substance-free retreat opens in June and reservations will open up to the public the following month. A rep from the resort told Cosmopolitan that an all-inclusive 7-day stay will start at $3,500. But don't reach for your credit card yet. All applicants interested in booking a stay on SuperShe must submit to an approval process.
Up to this point, the SuperShe base has consisted of Roth's inner circle, but this will change once the general public is able to apply for exclusive memberships. Roth plans to use a vetting process similar to Soho House, where current members vouch for incoming ones. Roth told the Post, "I'd like to vet the person and see that they're well-rounded and would fit in, but I don't want to be elitist."
If you think you have what it takes to be a SuperShe (and at least $3,500), apply today.
