For some travelers, itsy bitsy bikinis or revealing Speedos just don’t cut it — a vacation isn’t a vacation without a little nudity. Luckily for them, these hotels are redefining casual dress with policies that let guests bare it all (or almost all). So take a peek – a little voyeurism never hurt anyone.
THEHotel at Mandalay Bay
The Moorea Beach Club at THEhotel — part of the Mandalay Bay hotel complex — has a rowdy pool party, exclusive to guests over 21. Poolside massage services are available, and “European” sunbathing (read: topless sunbathing) is permitted.
Desire Resort and Spa Riviera Maya
You’ll find all sorts at this clothing-optional, couples-only resort, from older married couples, to young nudists, to swingers. One thing they all have in common: They like to get naked. The resort bills itself as “a place of freedom where fantasies become real,” and these fantasies can become real all over the property — the white-sand beach, the big pool, and especially the large Jacuzzi, which can get pretty X-rated towards the wee hours of the morning.
Breezes Grand Resort & Spa Negril
This Jamaica resort is equal opportunity, offering both clothed and clothing optional sections — or, as some of the regulars might put it, “a nude side and a prude side.” There are plenty of signs so that guests don’t stray unsuspectingly into the wrong area. Guest on the nude side can expect body painting, hash pipes in the gift shop, slot machines, and late-night naked parties in the hot tub.
