Located on Negril’s famous Seven Mile Beach, Hedonism II is an adults-only clothing-optional resort in Jamaica. This popular property has both a “prude” and “nude” side, allowing guests to disrobe to their comfort level. Those who do go to the nude side must be fully in the buff to enjoy that area’s beachfront and lively pool. In the evenings, themed nights get guests to dress up in lingerie and sexy outfits, and many make their way to the Romping Shop Playroom — where condoms are provided and public sex is common. Beachfront rooms with group-friendly hot tubs on the patios are also known to get pretty rowdy.
The clothing-optional Desire Riviera Maya Resort is an all-inclusive, couples-only resort that attracts everyone from older married couples to young nudists to swingers. The vibe here is undoubtedly sensual and a bit racy, particularly because sex is allowed in some public spaces, including the huge whirlpool area and the Sin Room — where round beds and straps are available for those who want to take part in sexual games with other guests or their partners. Themed nights such as Schoolgirls & Nerds, and sexy contests, auctions, and performances up the steamy atmosphere. Contemporary rooms have Kama Sutra-themed artwork and all suites house whirlpools.
The Liberty Inn is an hourly rate hotel billing itself as a romance hotel. It’s located in Manhattan’s West Village, right by the popular High Line elevated park and several dining options. The hourly hotel experience starts with guests selecting their room type — Standard Room or Romantic Interlude Room with a two-person whirlpool — and the length of their stay, which ranged from two hours to overnight. Rooms are designed with a sexy break in mind, offering adjustable mood lighting, candles, large mirrors, and free porn channels. Most past guests find the hotel clean and suitable for a fun getaway with a partner. Be aware that rooms are only for two people.
Like its sister property mentioned above, the Desire Riviera Maya Pearl Resort is a couples-only, clothing-optional, all-inclusive resort located on a beautiful white-sand beach right outside quiet Puerto Morelos. The fun property is slightly more relaxed than the aforementioned Desire Riviera Maya Resort, though a risque atmosphere still pervades throughout. For one, entertainment such as foam parties and stripper nights are offered, plus sex is allowed in two public spaces — the large whirlpool and the Sin Room, which is located adjacent to the nightclub and offers everything needed for couples or groups to play together.
Located along a tranquil beachfront in Cancun’s Hotel Zone, Temptation Cancun Resort is an adults-only, topless-optional hotel catering to uninhibited travelers looking for a sexy getaway. The 21-and-over crowd is kept busy at this all-inclusive resort with activity-packed swimming pools, hot tubs, and a full-service spa. Sensual entertainment ranges from foam parties and lingerie shows to risque theme nights with DJs such as “Angels and Devils.” Renovations completed in 2017 brought a fresh, colorful style and a more exclusive Tower housing rooms, a rooftop pool, bar, and DJ performances.
Located in historic Key West, Island House is a 34-room boutique designed exclusively for gay men. There’s a medium-sized, outdoor pool with lush foliage, a hot tub, and a clothing-optional policy (nudity is allowed everywhere except for the fitness center), as well as an on-site bar that’s open until late and acts as a popular meeting spot for nightlife and socializing. Decor in the spa and various rooms veers towards the erotic, and Island House has a 24-hour erotic video lounge for guests’ use. For guests looking to explore the area, the hotel offers gay nude sailing trips to nearby reefs, snorkeling outings, and trips to secluded beaches.
A honeymoon destination since the 1960s, this Poconos getaway has become an American institution, and the founder even invented the heart-shaped Sweetheart Tub. With lots of heart-shaped theme decor, Cove Haven Resort is a couples-only property that celebrates love and romance. All rooms have round beds and a copious amount of mirrors — many on the ceilings — plus most feature heart-shaped whirlpool tubs with split-level sitting areas that have fireplaces. Couples looking to go all out can book a room with a Champagne glass-shaped whirlpool and sauna.
The budget-friendly Rooftop Resort is an adults-only, nude-friendly resort geared toward swingers and nudists. Located in Hollywood, Florida, travelers are a quick three-minute walk from the beach, and the hotel’s rooftop pool has views of both the ocean and intracoastal waterway. In addition to the pool, the hotel has a free-to-use sauna and playrooms for couples and groups. Rooms have all the expected amenities, but the naughtiest guest rooms are the suites with swing sets called “love slings.”
Paradise Stream Resort is the most conveniently located of three couples-only resorts in the Poconos region owned by Cove Haven. A hand-painted sign outside exclaims, “You Are Entering the Land of Love” and from there the romance motif continues. The all-suite property has rooms designed to fuel passion with wood-burning fireplaces and heart-shaped whirlpool baths, plus upgraded units add private plunge pools, saunas, and/or seven-foot tall Champagne-glass-shaped whirlpools. All-inclusive rates include meals and non-alcoholic drinks.
Wait. In the bottom left corner, is that..? Yes, yes it is. In fact, Hotel Amour is replete with phallic and nude paraphernalia. The hotel’s design was inspired by the Japanese model of love hotels, and the erotic look was accomplished in part due to well-known fashion designer Chantal Thomass, who designed certain rooms. Rooms aim to get guests in the mood for “amour,” with the help of erotic decor. The hotel is just a 10-minute walk from the infamous Moulin Rouge, and appropriately situated in the heart of the Pigalle quarter, which is known among tourists for its sex shops and adult theaters.
The city of Sosua primarily caters to the sex tourism industry, as it’s legal in the Dominican Republic, and the New Garden Hotel sees tourists who are overwhelmingly in Sosua for that reason. It’s set in downtown Sosua, within a five-minute walk to the beach, bars, restaurants, and nightclubs. This property largely attracts solo male travelers or groups of men traveling together. The hotel allows for guests — though security is tight — and we saw countless men with their “chicas” stroll back to the property. Two outdoor pools, an on-site restaurant, free Wi-Fi, and free daily breakfast add value to this already affordable property.
The mid-range, adults-only Copacabana Hotel & Suites is a great option for open-minded singles and swingers of all ages. The hotel is located on Jaco Beach, and prostitution is legal here, meaning some travelers are here for that reason. The property has two pools: one clothing optional and one where nudity is required. The poolside sports bar, called the Naked Iguana, offers music or entertainment until late, and the restaurant serves all three meals. All-inclusive packages are available.
The Artisan Hotel in Las Vegas has a dark, artsy vibe with a kinky twist, open strictly to adults 21 and over. Erotic paintings and mirrors line the walls and even the ceilings throughout the hotel, including an eclectic mix of reproductions by Van Gogh, Da Vinci, and Rembrandt decorating the common areas and guest rooms. The hotel is aimed towards the sexually adventurous, with the outdoor pool being topless-optional and some room packages providing extras such as copies of the Kama Sutra and so-called Intimacy Love Kits. Rooms have opulent, gothic decor that includes red velvet and black-leather furniture, and some suites have living spaces.
The Standard, High Line is an upscale, sexy hotel in the party-heavy Meatpacking District. The hotel is architecturally striking, hovering above the elevated High Line park on concrete pillars. The 338 ultra-modern rooms feature huge windows, which flood them with natural light and present staggering views of the city, plus they result in a bit of a peep show, appealing to exhibitionists (and voyeurs on the High Line). Additionally, all rooms have open-plan bathrooms — the showers and tubs are separated from the rest of the guest rooms only by clear glass panes (some rooms have privacy blinds, but not all). The Standard also has several sexy nightlife options, most notable of which is the clubby Le Bain, which offers a plunge pool, roof terrace, DJ-led music, and stellar vistas. Another exclusive bar is the rooftop Top of the Standard (also known as the Boom Boom Room), a celebrity hot spot lounge which is open to the public only at certain times.
Cypress Cove Nudist Resort is a nudist property after all, but it falls at the end of our list as it largely caters to families who practice a nudist lifestyle. Open since 1964, the hotel is within easy driving distance of Orlando theme parks, plus there are enough features to keep guests occupied on-site. There are two swimming pools (no swimwear allowed in the pool), a poolside bar aptly named Cheeks, which offers both indoor and outdoor seating, and a small spa for massages. Throughout the year, the hotel hosts special events such as Parrot Head festival, Nude Palooza, family-friendly weekends, luaus, and more. Guests can opt to stay in the hotel rooms and villas, or camp out on the grounds in tents or in their RVs.
