Hedonism is probably the most famous clothing-optional resort of any general-market all-inclusive in the world. You don’t have to be a nudist or a swinger to enjoy it—there is both a nude beach and a prude beach (the resort lies on a headland at the very northern end of Seven Mile Beach) and same with the pools—but if naked people, king-sized mirrors over the beds, and sex in semi-public make you uncomfortable, try the Sandals next door instead.
After sliding downhill for a several years, the resort gained new owners in 2013, and they are bringing it back up to snuff. The food is getting better, and “premium suite” rooms have been upgraded in a much nicer and flashy modern style. Oh, and in case this isn’t blatantly obvious: This is an adults-only resort; you must be 18 to party. (And, since everyone asks about the name: Hedonism III has since closed, and there never was a Hedonism I.)
