All-Female Hotel Opens in Saudi Arabia

There's a new hotel in the capital of Saudi Arabia, and businessmen shouldn't even think of spending the night there.

The first all-female hotel opened Tuesday in Riyadh, thanks to Prince Sultan bin Salman, who heads the Supreme Commission for Tourism, according to Arab News.

Bin Salman said he hopes other women-only establishments will follow elsewhere in the country.

Luthan Hotel & Spa caters to Saudi businesswomen in the hopes that they'll help boost tourism, Arab News reported.

“This important project comes in line with the government’s support for investment projects in all sectors and its encouragement to women to take part in the development process,” Sultan told the News.

The hotel has 25 rooms and offers its female guests services 24 hours a day. The extensive spa and club on the premises opened in 2005.
