Top 10 Clothing-Optional Resorts on Earth

A great hotel, sea view, lots of entertaining activities or relaxing time on a fine sand beach, good food and lots of sun, are usually key ingredients for a great vacation. But not for those that feel stranded by their bathing suit.

They usually go for the clothing-optional resorts, therefore we decided to show you the best of the best when it comes to sun-bathing in Adam’s and Eve’s costumes.

3. Living Waters Spa, California

The Californian sun!! People say it’s one of the best in the whole world. Tie that with a European-style clothing optional hotel and you get the Living Waters Spa in Desert Hot Springs. With a repeat guest rate of more than 70% it could be the best solution if you’re in the States and don’t want to go naked abroad. It’s more than a vacation. They offer “Lexus” services dedicated to satisfy every tourist type. Average nightly rate is $260.

4. Terra Cotta Inn, Palm Springs

The same sunny California has another perfect place for those looking for no tan-lines on their bodies in Palm Springs. It’s called the Terra Cotta Inn and used to be a celebrity retreat site. It’s probably one of the greatest places if you plan on being pampered and spoiled or if you plan to have the most relaxing vacation after a full year. The Los Angeles Magazine named them “One of our Top Four Places to Stay in Palm Springs for couples.” Average nightly rate is $149.

5. Caliente Caribe Resort and Spa, Dominican Republic

Another great place to leave your stress just where you left your clothes is Puerto Plata, in the Dominican Republic. Caliente Caribe Resort and Spa is an oasis of luxury but unspoiled environment where only the coconut palms get to see you tanning freely in the sun. With all rooms viewing the ocean the Caliente Caribe guarantees you an awesome experience. The average nightly rate is $235.

6. Sorobon Beach Resort, Bonaire

Bonaire is a city on the main island (out of a total of five islands) in the Netherlands Antilles. Here is where you find the the Sorobon Beach Resort. The pristine atmosphere on the beautiful island is what makes this place a little haven that welcomes you to swimming, scuba diving, snorkeling and to stay nude on the beach 24-7. The average nightly rate is $190.

7. Cabanas Copal, Mexico

Yet another Mexico destination for clothing-optional fans, this is one of the cheapest you’ll get. Spending a vacation on a Caribbean cabana on the beach has been a dream for many but the eco-friendly tropical retreat at Cabanas Copal in Tulum, Mexico turns it into reality. Expect high quality and great services even though the average nightly rate starts at $95.

8. Club Orient Resort, St. Maarten

What makes people lose their clothes on the beach? The fact that no one is there to judge or comment. That’s what the Club Orient Resort in St. Maarten has to offer. The hotel is made up of chalets which all go directly on the beautiful white sand beach and offer views of the uninhabited nearby islands. Just remember that you won’t get TV or phone here and that the clothes are optional. Just enjoy. The average nightly rate is $396.

9. Grand Lido Negril Resort & Spa, Jamaica

Another top clothing-optional destination for couples is at Grand Lido Negril Resort & Spa near Negril, on Jamaica’s Southwest shore. These guys really know how to treat their guests in the best possible way with a combination of high luxury and natural purity that will get you swimming freely in crystal clear waters and sun bathing on silver sand beautiful beaches. The Travel Channel voted Grand Lido Negril Resort & Spa as the “best beach in the Caribbean and 6th best beach in the World”. The average nightly rate is $526, so if you can afford it, don’t miss it.

10. Punta Serena, Tenacatita

Remember me saying Mexico is a great destination for people that can’t stand clothes while on the beach? Another great example is Punta Serena, a truly Mexican gem in a stunning setting that really defines “gorgeous”. Surrounded by mangroves, the resort is formed of twelve villas and twelve deluxe bungalow rooms all offering amazing views of the Bay of Tenacatita and the Pacific Ocean. The average nightly rate is $240.

The weather is hot, the sun is shining. What are you going to do? Strip off and head to the nearest beach?

Top 10 Clothing-Optional Resorts on Earth… ON EARTH??? These resorts shown here are all a stonethrow away from the USA.
There is a whole planet outside of the American horizon!!
How can you claim that there is nothing worthwhile mentioning in Europe, Asia, India, Africa, Australia and South America???

Gangsta says on April 1st, 2010 at 4:38 am:

Thank you Very much for the information. I really found it when i badly need it

daniela says on June 18th, 2010 at 11:38 pm:

does anybody know of a “spa” like Sea mountain in Palm Desert, where everything is possible?

daijhi says on January 25th, 2011 at 9:31 am:

these are the top 10 luxury commercial places for rich Americans and their friends – not the top 10 places for facilities and popularity in the world. Cap D’Agde in France is regarded as the capital of Naturism. It has 20,000 naked people in a town like setting – where families are welcome – and prices start at $20 a night! But it’s not even mentioned here. This is a misleading site.

Elizabeth says on March 15th, 2013 at 4:25 am:

Desert Sun Resort in Palm Springs opened in 2008 when this list was posted that is the only reason I can think it would be left off. Truly the finest clothing optional resort in the USA. 3 pools, 91 rooms, 2 jacuzzis, full spa and restaurant, tennis, volleyball- you don’t want to miss it!

Jim says on April 17th, 2013 at 9:02 am:
