Designed for adventurous couples who want to add a bit of spice to their vacation, the all-inclusive Hedonism II is a popular mid-range 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 is both a “prude” and a “nude” section 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. And guests that want to explore the area are close to a variety of restaurants, bars, and shops in downtown Negril.
Swinger-friendly, exhibitionist-friendly mid-range resort on Seven Mile Beach
The fact that this resort has "Hedonism" in its name should give some indication as to the scene here. The property draws a mostly mature crowd (couples in their 40s and 50s), including large parties (such as the Fluffernutters) of like-minded (that is to say, open-minded) guests looking to socialize, and in some cases, swing. But besides exhibitionists and swingers, there are also plenty of mellow couples just looking for a little bit of raunchiness and liberation. The resort is divided into "nude" and "prude" sides to accommodate different comfort levels; on the nude side, nudity is required at the beach, pool, and hot tub, though public sex officially is not allowed (that being said, it does happen).
The nude pool is the liveliest (and most PDA-centric) part of the resort, but adventurousness is encouraged everywhere, from the rooms (there is a mirror above every bed) to the nightly themed parties (Sexy Pirates and Booty, Pajamas and Pasties, to name a couple). There are plenty of non-sexual activities, too, including water sports, basketball, tennis, and popular evening performances. Those who want to exercise a bit before de-robing can do so at a fitness center with Lifecycle and Lifestep equipment.
The property was formerly owned by SuperClubs, and some improvements have been taking place after the sale to a group of former guests. Still, there are certainly some signs of wear throughout. Guests also report that there can be issues with getting hot water and pushy vendors at the beach.
The vibe is not only respectful but secure: Upon arrival, guests will pass through several security gates before reaching the circular drive and open-air lobby. A large front table serves as the welcome and reception desk, with benches and a small, colorful seating pit in the center of the room. The opposite side has two small private rooms, one with public computers and free Wi-Fi, and the other with a tour desk and information on local attractions and activities. Guests can walk right through the lobby to the large main restaurant and dining area, which features a big stage and open doors to the rest of the resort.
Located off the busy Norman Manley Boulevard, Hedonism II is tucked away from the road, on a private and secluded section of Negril’s beautiful Seven Mile Beach. The beach itself is a small area of land that juts out from the rest of the island, making it isolated, and the greenery and gardens provide further shelter. Although no other buildings or hotels are visible from the property, the hotel is a short drive from a variety of restaurants, bars, and shops, as well as local attractions and craft boutiques.
Basic, dated rooms, all with mirrors above the beds
The rooms here are quite basic: tile floors, dated floral bedding, and white stucco walls are the norm, and some guests have reported issues getting hot water. There is visible wear and tear. Since the new ownership took over, rooms have received some upgrades, such as fresh paint jobs, but there is more work to be done. Classic Rooms are older, and include flat-screen TVs and mini-fridges, while the newer, Premium Suites (on the nude side of the resort only) are larger, with nicer, more spacious bathrooms. Some also feature patios or balconies with hot tubs. All rooms have mirrors above the bed and there is some porn to be found on the TVs. Guests that prefer a quieter room should book on the less expensive “prude” side, while guests that want to party late and be close to the pools and beach should book on the more lively “Nude” side. Guests have access to the entire resort, no matter which side they book on.
The wide assortment of nightlife options and an energetic entertainment crew are some of the main draws here. With live music, dancing, theme nights, costume parties, and shows, something is always going on at Hedonism II. The pools, hot tubs, and beaches are also hubs of activity, and there are options on both the nude and prude side (nudity is required at these areas on the nude side). The prude side pool has been spruced up and looks more upscale, while both the pool and the hot tub on the nude side can get pretty raunchy, especially at night.
There are a ton of water sports available, including scuba diving, snorkeling, windsurfing, and sailing, while on land squash, shuffleboard, table tennis, regular tennis, and basketball are on offer. There is also a sizable spa offering a range of treatments, as well as a steam room, sauna, and a fitness center with Lifecycle and Lifestep machines.
For food and drink, this all-inclusive resort offers five bars, three restaurants, buffets, a piano bar, and a nightclub. Appetizers and cocktails are offered on the beach at sunset. Pizza and burgers are served at the nude pool from midnight until 4 a.m.
