If you’re a fan of unlimited yoga, spa treatments, massages and wellness baths filled with pretty petals, book your place now. Surrounded by the Balinese jungle, this retreat has everything you’ll need and more, including a huge private pool and both indoor and outdoor ensuite bathrooms, so there’s no need to queue to wash your hair if you’re travelling with friends.

Personalise your break with one of 16 different packages, ranging from water lover retreats to fabulous food packages. The Bliss Package is the most popular and basic option, but it’s by no means your average stay – it includes personal drivers to chauffeur you around any sightseeing experiences, and comes with unlimited local, healthy food. With rooms across three sanctuary retreats, this place is never overcrowded – pure bliss.

The solo one

Get outdoors for a journey of discovery as you explore Croatia’s Zadar archipelago with Gutsy Girls – a company dedicated to creating group travelling experiences for women. Follow your local guide as you paddleboard and kayak between gorgeous islands and pebbled beaches, before snorkelling in crystal-clear waters and exploring shipwrecks and sandy bays. Once on land, you can hike and cycle your way up to quaint chapels to see picturesque views.

Spend the night in one of the modern apartments, where local families will prepare traditional dinners and local freshly caught fish for you. Breakfast and lunch are also included, so you have time to relax and explore what nature has to offer. No matter what level paddler or age you are, everyone can take part in the adventure.

The private one

Whether you’re flying solo or on a trip with your best friend, you’ll feel right at home during a stay at the Georgian Court Hotel in Vancouver, Canada. The Orchid Floor is exclusively for female travellers, and with its super-handy amenities, such as hair straighteners, curling tongs and a ladies’ emergency kit, you’ll be able to travel lightly and leave half of your room at home.

While there, unwind atop hypoallergenic beds with a complimentary magazine. Should you want to work out, yoga mats are provided in every room, or you could visit the hotel’s infrared sauna after a busy day of exploring and relax in the hot tub.
