Oasis Spa is another highlight, offering indulgent experiences for singles and couples. If you stay in one of eight Oasis Spa Villas, you’ll enjoy unlimited complimentary spa treatments, too.

All rooms and suites are decorated in vintage pastels and boast plush, King beds, furnished private balconies or patios, and a personalized mini-bar. In terms of dining and entertainment, take your pick of six restaurants and five bars. Head to Eight Rivers for Jamaican cuisine, or dance until the early hours at The Lounge nightclub.

Hidden Beach Resort, Riviera Maya, Mexico

Karisma Hotels & Resorts

Best for Couples: Desire Riviera Maya Resort, Mexico

Desire Riviera Maya Resort, Mexico

Desire Riviera Maya Resort, Mexico

Desire Riviera Maya Resort is another all-inclusive option with the same sexually-charged atmosphere as Hedonism II. The only difference: This resort is exclusively reserved for couples.

The beautiful beachfront has clothing-optional and nude areas, while the au naturel outdoor rooftop Jacuzzi and lounge is a hot spot for releasing your inhibitions. Play Makers lead guests in daily activities that range from non-motorized watersports to Art of Touch workshops. Plus, there’s even a catamaran that can be booked for naked cruises. 

Couples that really want to expand their sexual horizons can do so with the help of the resort’s Fantasy Menu, which offers the chance to fulfil your deepest desires in a safe environment. Every evening, provocative entertainment is offered, while the nightclub hosts signature theme nights (think Masters & Mistresses or the Mysterious Masquerade).

In between parties, detox with a side-by-side massage at the spa, or rekindle your romance over dinner at one of four gourmet restaurants. Standard in-room amenities include a King bed and a cable TV with erotic channels.

Best for Exploration: Hedonism II, Jamaica

Hedonoism II

Hedonoism II

Negril’s Hedonism II is an all-inclusive, adults-only, lifestyle-friendly resort that lives up to its motto “Your Pleasure is Our Passion.”

By openly encouraging guests to explore their most sensual side, it has earned a reputation as a playground for singles, swingers, and open-minded couples wanting to take their sex life to the next level.

The resort is split into two sides: the “prude” side where clothing is optional and behavior is a little more restrained, and the “nude” side, where nudity is mandatory and displays of public intimacy are common. 

Both sides offer a choice of pools and hot tubs. Sign up for tantric massage experiences and expert-led erotic workshops at the Kama Sutra Palace, or opt for a more conventional massage at the spa.

During the day, activities range from volleyball and sailing to scuba diving and tennis. By night, sensual shows and striptease performances take center stage. If you’re feeling particularly adventurous, head to adult playroom, the Romping Shop. Clothing is required in Hedonism II’s multiple restaurants and bars.

Best Boutique: Grand Lido Negril, Jamaica

Grand Lido Negril, Jamaica

 Grand Lido Negril, Jamaica

If you’re in search of a boutique resort whose small size makes it easy to feel comfortable in your own skin, look no further than Grand Lido Negril.

Located in a private and protected setting on the Negril oceanfront, this all-inclusive, clothing-optional resort caters exclusively to adults and has just 26 luxury suites.

All of them are ocean-facing and include a private terrace, or balcony and butler service. Jetted spa tubs come standard, but for the most indulgent experience, consider upgrading to one with swim-out pool access. 

Included activities range from snorkeling and kayaking to introductory scuba lessons. You can hang out at the au naturel swim-up pool bar, or feast on classic Jamaican cuisine at the poolside grill.

Most of the resort’s facilities (including the spa, beach, and additional restaurants) are located at the nearby Royalton Negril and Hideaway at Royalton Negril resorts, to which you have free access. Enjoy unlimited dining and drinking at restaurants like Dorado for seafood and grilled meats and the West Indies-inspired Calypso.

Best Luxury: Couples San Souci, Jamaica

Couples San Souci

Couples Resorts

If you’re looking for uninterrupted luxury that’s a little less explicit, consider Couples San Souci.

Perched above the ocean in Ochos Rios, it’s a resort that also caters to those that like to be clothes-free, with au naturel Sunset Beach. Here (but nowhere else on the property) nudity is mandatory. You can soak up the sun at the beach, cool off with a dip in the pool, or order cocktails at the swim-up bar. All drinks and meals are covered by the resort’s all-inclusive rates. 

In total, there are five restaurants and seven bars. Palazzina serves bistro-style global fare on an elegant open-air terrace, while Casanova is your choice for romantic, haute cuisine dinners in a colonial setting.

During the day, take part in fitness and dance classes, nature walks, watersports and scuba diving, or relax with a treatment at the award-winning spa. All 150 suites offer a luxurious, yet laid-back beach theme with a private furnished balcony or patio and a personalized mini-bar.

Best Laid-Back: Hawksbill by Rex Resorts, Antigua

Hawksbill Beach Resort

Rex Resorts

The adults-only Hawksbill by Rex Resorts is the kind of place that appeals to travelers who prioritize a remote location and abundant natural beauty, over glitzy mega-resort facilities.

It’s set directly on the beach amid 37 acres of landscaped tropical gardens. And, the resort provides access to four secluded beaches, including the only clothing-optional one in the whole of Antigua. There’s also a swimming pool and tennis court, and activities available either on-site or nearby range from deep-sea fishing and horse riding, to boat cruises and spa treatments.

Beachfront rooms and suites are decorated in old-fashioned Caribbean style, which some reviewers find to be charmingly rustic while others say they’re dated. For groups, The Great House is an exciting option, with three bedrooms, four bathrooms, a kitchenette, and a wraparound balcony.

All meals are included in your rates. Head to informal, open-air restaurant Tamarind Tree for buffet breakfasts and dinners, or to Sea Grape Restaurant & Bar for grill lunches at the beach. Clothing is required in all dining areas.

Best for Nature Lovers: The Natural, Curaçao

The Natural, Curaçao

The Natural, Curaçao

The Natural enjoys an elevated, breeze-kissed location in the center of Curaçao. And, as the name suggests, it's a haven for those that shed their clothes in order to feel closer to nature.

Although it is designed with conscious-living naturists in mind, clothing is optional for those that aren’t sure if they’ll feel comfortable fully nude. The resort is respectful of the environment, with solar panels, a water recycling system, a saltwater swimming pool, and a decidedly low-impact approach to tourism and hospitality. 

Spend sunny days lounging by the pool, or submit to the healing hands of one of the resort’s expert massage therapists. A rental Jeep is available for accessing local beaches and shore diving locations, while scuba courses and other nature-inspired activities can be arranged by the resort’s owners upon request.

You can also ask for advice about the best local beaches, although none of these are currently nudist-friendly. As there’s no restaurant, booking a studio, safari tent, or bungalow with a full kitchen is a good idea.
