Top 10 Clothing Optional Resorts – Exposed!

Our top 10 list of "au naturel" vacations ~ TripAdvisor rated

Hands up if you love TripAdvisor? GoGirlfriend isn't affiliated in any way, but we love them just the same. It's the gritty, honest reviews written by real people with real experiences that we love the most.

Caribbean Clothing Optional Resorts"For travelers, a great vacation is all about escaping," said Michele Perry, vice president of global communications for TripAdvisor. "For most that means escaping the confines of their homes, for others, it is best achieved by escaping the confines of their clothes."

A clothing optional resort isn't necessarily the same as a purist nudist resort that mandates nudity from the moment you check in. If you want to test clothing-optional, an adult-only resort is the perfect fit - pardon the pun. If you're a hard-core nudist, skip to the last resort on the list and get yourself to Orient Beach, St. Maarten.

"Everyone is just there to relax and enjoy the sun and to unwind. I cannot think of a better place to do all of those things."

******************************Desire Jacuzzi and bar

"This was our first trip to a clothing optional hotel. We had no idea we were going to one of the best around for our first experience."


"Watching the stars and moon from the beachside hot tub was one of our most memorable moments."

******************************Living Water Spa, Palm Springs

"If you enjoy a clothing-optional environment where you can just completely let go and relax, this place is perfect."


"A place where you can feel totally comfortable shedding your stress, worries, and cares right along with your clothes."

******************************beachy fun

"Hedo ll is the absolute best place to relax, let your hair down, throw away inhibitions and just have fun!!​"


"The beach is beautiful, crystal clear water that is so warm and calm, and they provide floats so you can float all day in paradise."

******************************Hawksbill Beach, Antigua

"An amazing week! Our room was absolutely perfect, and the choice of 4 beaches was amazing. The nude beach, Eden Beach, wasn't crowded at all ..."


"Staying at Club Orient is as close to heaven as you can get without dying! Nudity feels so natural that even first timers have no problem shedding their clothes."

******************************Be naked and relax

"Overall, it was the most relaxing and romantic week we have ever spent at a resort."

  • On 5 Nudist Resorts that Will Blow Your Mind, John Ruze said "Hi Julia, There is a brand new, very popular nudist resort you should think about reporting on in your next article about naturism. It is the New Terra Cotta Clothing Optional Resort and Spa in sunny Palm Springs, California.. The original Terra Cotta Inn was a fantastic nude resort. Repeat guests from around the world stayed there. TCI was sold in Nov 2015 and greatly missed. Well, this July 2017, it was revived at a new location in Palm Springs. The site is HotelTerraCotta.com. Guests are super happy. It's perfect for couples and girlfriend getaways. And Tom and Mary Clare from the original Terra Cotta Inn work with us, so it has the same relaxing, fun feel. "
  • On The Best Naturist Resorts in Ontario, Dennis Wilson said "Love the freedom feeling going nude . 1st time ever was at freedom fields ranch near Tamworth On,Hector & Eyvon are super hosts ,hope to visit this summer but want to learn of more places to visit."
  • On An Open Letter to Hotels Everywhere, Lynn said "I agree on the night light thing. Since hotels have none, I end up keeping the bathroom light on all night with the door ajar. Windows. I understand in the litigious US of A, hotels need to prevent folks from throwing themselves out the windows (or else the hotel could be sued?!!). Ok, fine. But for those of us who dislike A/C and only use it when absolutely necessary, can't we still have the option for some FRESH AIR? There ARE ways to allow windows to open up only so much, while at the same time preventing an entire body from throwing itself out the window. Bedskirts. Am I the only one who gets the skeevies when I see hotel beds with bedskirts that hit the floor? I always had images of food crumbs, bugs, and god only knows what...as being hidden behind that bedskirt. I'd much rather a bedskirt that's at least 2" above the (usually carpetted) floor. Towels. Can't we get nicer towels that don't feel like cardboard? Carpetting. Am I the only one who never walks barefoot in a hotel room ...esp when there's carpet? Blech. I'm sure those things are very rarely cleaned. "
