Desire Resort on the Riviera Maya is an all-inclusive, clothing-optional resort set on a white-sand beach, arranged to resemble a pastoral village. Many of the suites and villas have ocean views and blend into the tropical gardens.
The overall theme is of a decidedly adventurous adult variety and the property is couples-only. Guests are invited to mingle with others and party at the main pool, but also can maintain their romantic distance if they prefer to be alone.
One of the room categories hints at the resort's theme: Passion suites. In addition to offering a romantic getaway, couples can take part in many activities, including sexy adult-theme nights and throwing back drinks at any of the resort's bars, including one nudist bar with a 30-person hot tub.
All-Inclusive Desire Resort and Spa Rooms
There are three categories of rooms here: superior, Jacuzzi suites and passion suites
In the superior category, there are 34 ocean-view and 64 garden-view rooms with king or queen beds, air conditioning, satellite TV, balcony or terrace, and mini-bar stocked with water, beer and soft drinks.
In the Jacuzzi suites category there are four offerings with all the amenities of superior rooms and including king beds, huge bath with four-person Jacuzzi, a welcome bottle of wine, a variety of sensual and exotic candles, a “Tantra essential” gift box, incense, welcome fruit basket and daily hors d’oeuvres.
In the passion suites category, there are 10 with added amenities of living room, daily continental breakfast and afternoon hors d’oeuvres with wine, in-room mini-bar with top-shelf liquors and beer, and room service at no extra charge.
