Hey Ladies

In Miami, girls just want to have fun, and Sanctuary, a new boutique hotel in the heart of South Beach, is the place to do it. The 30-room, $500-a-night, all-suite hot spot is touting itself as the first "female friendly" getaway in town. Sanctuary offers a 25 percent discount to single women guests and features such amenities as hunky jog buddies and yoga companions, personal shoppers, and good-looking cabana boys at the rooftop pool to put suntan lotion on guests' backs. Also tailored for the estrogen set is the brand-new Sanctuary Salon and Spa, which offers discounts to women guests. The spa features a specially designed calorie-conscious menu and such signature treatments as the Botanical Mud Infusion ($75, 60 minutes), a body treatment using mineral-rich mud blended with chamomile, lavender, and rose petals, and the Shirodhara Scalp Rejuvenation ($35, 25 minutes), a therapeutic head massage based on the ancient Indian technique. All treatments can be done in the client's suite, within the intimate, bright orange spa and salon, or on the rooftop deck next to the infinity-edge wading pool.

 Female guests at Sanctuary Salon and Spa can indulge in an array of beauty and relaxation treatments.
