Best naturist Couples Retreat

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on December 20, 2008

Wow, I cant believe that The terra Cotta inn is not already listed here. I was a first timer over the spring. The owners and staff was very welcoming, and after my first step out of my room with a towel wrapped around me i felt scared, but then i eased through the process i was toweless and clothes free within minutes. i felt confident through the course of the day to get up and walk around , get in the pool and float and actually chat with some of the other couples there. i will definetly be going to terra cotta many more times and i am now proud enough to say i am a nudist. 5 stars i rate this secret getaway

Unique Quality: the pools are salt water and jacuzzi as well
pool and spa open 24hrs
owner delivers strawberries and wine to you poolside
staff is welcoming like no where i had ever been
oh and the misters helped in 110 temps

Directions: a mile or so from downtown

A fun hotel in Palm Springs, CA

We just spent a week at his fun hotel and it was so romantic. We saw a story about the Terra Cotta Inn on the Travel Channel. We had never thought about going to a nudist resort, but since they were so highly rated ,we gave them a call. They greatly exceeded our expectations. They are for couples, so it is nice that you don't have noisy children. If someone is thinking about trying a clothing optional resort, they are the best.

We were very nervous, but talking to them on the phone made us feel comfortable. We asked if when we got there could we wear bathing suits. They told us on the phone that we could, but everyone else will be nude sunbathing, so we would probably feel more comfortable going nude. They were right. As soon as they opened their doors, we felt like we were visiting family. I can not describe the feeling of freedom you have laying in the warm sun with out a wet bathing suit. It was also very relaxing.

You never have to worry about anything. Tom was a president of The Palm Springs Chamber of Commerce and knows everything to do in the town. He and his wife Mary Claire were restaurant critics. Their recommendations were always perfect. 4 o'clock is lots of fun when Tom walks into the pool serving strawberries and wine.

We were surprised that most of the other guests had been there before. We met people from England and Australia. It was really cool talking with everyone. Everyone was so friendly. Everyone told us that we were at the best clothing optional resort. We felt pretty good that our first experience was at the best.

We live in Charlotte, NC. We love sunshine and decided not to go to Florida this summer because we didn't want to risk a hurricane. We are so happy we went to Palm Springs. It was nice and sunny. With their low humidity, it was very comfortable. Much better than the mugginess at home and in Florida. We are hooked now.

We are always going to take a summer vacation at Terra Cotta.

Unique Quality: We were told this was a historic hotel designed by a famous architect. Many movie stars had stayed there. It is fun trying to think who stayed in your room.

This hotel is better than most regular hotels.

They have great , dramatic views mountains

Directions: Nice residential area just 5 minutes away from downtown Palm Springs.

Terra Cotta Inn

by written on August 26, 2002

We stayed for 8 days and the price was around $850.00

Unique Quality: The most unique quality about this place is that it's clothing-optional. Now, this may bring wild scenes of sex parties and orgies to mind, but that's NOT what it's all about. The Inn is for couples only and there's NO funny business going on here. It IS about privacy and being pampered by the owners. We've NEVER been treated as nicely as while we were there. At 4:00pm every day, the owners personally serve wine and fruit to all the guests at poolside. Ohh .... another thing I liked was that the pool and hottub are open 24 hrs a day. And the BEST part about this place is that NO ONE bugs you. PERIOD! It's not allowed.
