Greek mythology tells tales of fierce female warriors known as the Amazons, who were not to live among men.

Today, entrepreneur Kristina Roth is building a similar community for modern wonder women on an island where no men are allowed. On the Baltic Sea, the “SuperShe” island is an isolated landform in Finland, surrounded by greenery and miles of blue waters. The feminist version of a gentleman’s club, the 8.4-acre private island remains members-only territory for now, and with four chic cabins, can accommodate 10 people at a time.  

Before purchasing the island, Roth established a global network of women called SuperShe. The group connects women across the world to inspire them to “improve their lives and regain overall health through: fitness, beauty, fashion, sex, spirituality, and more.” The island will foremost serve as the community’s headquarters. Roth has invited VIP members of SuperShe to test out the island’s facilities this coming June, and will eventually begin accepting visitors from outside her circle the following month. By July, Roth will handpick interested applicants to pay a visit to the island.

“Women need to spend time with other women. Being on vacation can cause women to become sidetracked, whether it’s to put on a swipe of lipstick or grab a cover-up,” Roth says on the island’s website. “We want SuperShe Island to be rejuvenating and a safe space where women can reinvent themselves and their desires. A place where you can recalibrate without distractions.”

Just like a typical resort, the SuperShe Island is furnished with spa amenities, Finnish saunas, and facilities. But unlike other luxury retreats, Roth and her staff provide an array of activities for their guests to bond in a unique way. Together, they can meditate, participate in yoga, farm-to-table dining, cooking classes, fitness classes, and nature activities.

The island doesn’t accept just anyone. Roth looks for a certain positive energy in a woman; one that would suit the island life. “The number one, number one thing that’s important for me is that you have an amazing personality—like upbeat, cool personality—because you’re on an island,” Roth tells CNN Travel. “That’s what’s going to make it fun and exciting for everyone.” Roth will be conducting interviews with applicants on Skype, reports Cosmopolitan.

The lucky few will experience nearly complete freedom on the SuperShe Island—it’s said to be a substance-free place—just as Roth designed it to be. The tranquil Finnish landscape will ease women out of their shell and the distance from society will allow them to be and do whatever they choose.

For its first year, membership fees do not apply. Cosmopolitan also reports that a week’s stay on the island will start at $3,500.
