Whether its to kickstart a relationship, revive a relationship, or simply maintain a relationship, couples (of all ages.. and degrees of commitment) will often plan a romantic getaway -- or two or three -- at some point throughout their courtship. While relaxing on a beach somewhere may be all some couples need to reconnect, others look for a little something extra to spice up their vacation. That's where these naughty hotels come in. From Paris to Vegas, the Riviera Maya to Long Island City (yes, we said it -- and we're being serious), these 13 properties have their own special way of creating an unforgettable getaway for couples who aren't afraid of a little nudity -- and welcome a little naughtiness.
Wait. In the bottom left corner, is that..? Yes, yes it is. In fact, Hotel Amour is replete with phallic and nude-y paraphernalia. The hotel’s design was inspired by the Japanese model of love hotels, and the owners have invested a tidy sum of money in developing the concept; for example, they hired the services of well-known fashion designer Chantal Thomass to design certain rooms, like the one shown above, that are sure to get guests in the mood for, well, “amour.” Appropriately situated in the heart of the Pigalle quarter, which is known among tourists for its sex shops and adult theaters, the hotel is just a 10-minute walk from the infamous Moulin Rouge.
The Desire Pearl is a couples-only all-inclusive resort that caters to those looking for a party scene; and all areas of the resort are completely clothing-optional. While couples can remain tete-a-tete on the white-sand beach or in the spacious rooms, most opt to join others at the pool’s swim-up bar or in the sexy nightclub, complete with swings, stripper poles, and a “sin room.” The resort also has nightly parties with themes such as “burlesque night” and “mysterious masquerade.” One thing you won’t have to worry about? What to wear!
The Night Theater District may be just a few blocks from Times Square, but couples can still get plenty of shuteye — or at least private bedroom time, wink wink — thanks to heavy blackout drapes that are in keeping with the hotel’s “night” theme. Other sexy amenities include under-lit beds topped with luxe Frette linens, and a sleek black-and-white color scheme. But the naughtiest feature is hidden in the nightstand: Opening the drawer, guests with find Kama Sutra books for some inspirational bedtime reading.
Complete with a popular club-meets-music-venue, The Drake Hotel attracts a young, hip crowd. Rooms may be small, but they’re sleek and stylish, with glassed-in showers that look out at the bedrooms and cool artwork on the exposed-brick walls. Mood-inducing pleasure menus also come standard; guests can “order in” their pick of flavored condoms, sex toys, and, er, props. Oh, and you can also actually order food such as chocolate truffles and oysters — both of which being known aphrodisiacs.
The Z is a hip boutique in Long Island City, Queens, and its reasonable rates alone will get guests in the mood for some hanky panky. But the Z doesn’t stop there. The hotel offers “naughty” and “nice” packages. While both offerings include a one-night’s stay, “nice” packages feature champagne and roses, in-room massages, and breakfast in bed. An intimacy kit (with edible underwear, handcuffs, a tickle feather, and blindfolds), a book of erotic games, and chocolate strawberries and champagne come with the “naughty” package. We have a feeling which you’re going to choose…
The Standard is sexy to begin with: This Meatpacking hot spot features a popular gourmet restaurant, an outdoor biergarten that is bustling come spring, and an exclusive rooftop nightclub. But the hotel shows it’s naughty side in it’s massive, immaculate rooms. With a sleek design, rooms feature plush bedding, comfy robes, minibars stocked with gourmet snacks and top-shelf liquor, and — the most flasher-friendly feature — floor-to-ceiling windows (even in some of the bathrooms) that look out over the Hudson River and surrounding neighborhood. These windows are notorious for showcasing some nudie activities, startling many locals and tourists ambling along the High Line below.
A homey, literary-themed boutique — located down the block from the city’s famous Public Library — the Library Hotel is a romantic pick. And it offers a solid value, too, with freebies like breakfast, Wi-Fi, and afternoon wine and cheese. The afternoon treats are the perfect way to cap off a day of sight-seeing and head back to your room, which is particularly enticing if you’re staying in the Love Room. This room is the only one with a terrace, which overlooks Madison Avenue, and the erotica book collection, which decorates the space, was curated by Dr. Ruth.
This 21-plus resort in Cancun’s Hotel Zone is the life of the party — and tops are very optional. It recently underwent a major renovation that brings a sexy elegance to the hotel, but it still retains its party-hard mentality. There are dozens of provocative events to bring together couples and singles alike, from Temptation Idol karaoke to risqué shows at night.
Back in the day, the Poconos were all the rage when it came to steamy getaways. The couples-only Cove Haven resort nods to these gaudier days with heart-shaped whirlpool tubs, mirrors on the ceilings to see all the best angles, and romance-themed fantasy decor but the “pièce de résistance” is the room with a Champagne glass-shaped whirlpool.
The luxurious Hidden Beach Resort by Karisma is an adults-only, clothing-optional resort located between Playa del Carmen and Tulum. This all-inclusive property is set along an attractive stretch of beach, though it’s too rocky for real swimming. Instead, guests can hang out at the large pool, which has a swim-up bar and hosts communal activities such as volleyball. The 42 elegant rooms here are all suite-style, outfitted with two-person hot tubs, ocean-view outdoor spaces, and free minibars. Ground-floor units offer swim-out access. There’s only one restaurant, minimal nightlife, and no spa, but guests can use all facilities at the next-door El Dorado Seaside Suites, though clothing is required. Visitors tend to be in the 50-and-over crowd, and the atmosphere is relaxed.
While there are other couples-only clothing-optional resorts on this list (Desire Riviera Maya Pearl Resort and Cove Haven Resort), we have a soft spot for Desire Rivera Maya Resort, an all-inclusive that attracts a mix of older married couples, young nudists, and swingers. This swish property has an explicit sexual atmosphere, as public sex is allowed in the whirlpool area and the Sin Room — a space equipped with round beds and straps for those who want to take part in activities with their partners and other guests. Sexy theme nights are also popular nighttime experiences. Non-sexual on-site amenities include a lovely ocean-view pool and hot tub, small spa with a variety of treatments, and four restaurants serving Japanese, Mediterranean, and international buffet-style fare.
Designed for adventurous couples who want to add a bit of spice to their vacation, the all-inclusive Hedonism II is a popular nudist resort tucked into a quiet, private section of Negril’s Seven Mile Beach. With a wide variety of activities and entertainment, this adults-only resort encourages guests to explore their wild side and indulge themselves. There are both “prude” and “nude” sections of the resort to accommodate different comfort levels, and property highlights include the nude beach, waterslide, and a variety of pools and whirlpools on both sides. Guests who want to explore the area are close to a variety of restaurants, bars, and shops in downtown Negril.
The 148-room Couples Sans Souci is a beachfront all-inclusive resort occupying 35 acres just outside of Ocho Rios on Jamaica’s central northern coast. The lush grounds house waterfalls, grottos, beaches, lakes, and jungles, making for a gorgeous tropical setting. In addition to a great spa, there are four pools and two beaches — the au naturel beach is larger and nude-only from morning until evening. It has an adjacent pool — something the main beach doesn’t — which makes it pretty alluring. Rooms have colonial-inspired nautical style, furnished balconies or terraces, and coffeemakers, plus hot tubs in suites.
