16 more hours until the World Record Skinny Dip Saturday July 11th
All of our guests are so excited to set the Guinness record for skinny dipping tomorrow. They can't wait. And we're excited too.
The American Association for Nude Recreation (AANR) has created a marketing coup. All over the internet, on radio and TV stations, and in newspapers all you are reading and hearing about is The AANR/ Guinness Book of World Records skinny dipping record this Saturday July 11th.
Here is sunny Palm Springs, California our resort The Terra Cotta Inn clothing optional resort and spa is participating. We are full for this fun event.
We have been written about in our local newspaper the Desert Sun. Our local NBC TV affiliate, KMIR has also been to our resort to cover the pre-event.
Today the record setting skinny dipping story was a front page story in the USA Today newspaper weekend section.
As always, our guests comfort comes first at our resort. We have already turned away in excess of 100 couples wanting just to show up for the day.
I was interviewed on a LA area radio station earlier today. The DJ said "so everyone is invited to come down to Terra Cotta Inn tomorrow and jump in you pool naked at noon, right?" I said no, it will only be for hotel guests and 10 couples for day use. We are full. I don't want to over crowd my hotel with hundreds of people so that there is no space for guests to enjoy our beautiful facilities. It is supposed to be a fun event, not a cattle call."
The DJ said "come on, you honestly expect me to believe in this economy you're going to turn away paying customers that want to hang out at your resort for the skinny dip?" I said, "Yep your right. Would you want to be some place where there was no shade, wall to wall people, no pool chairs, etc. just because management was greedy and overbooked a special event? I want our guests to have fun which is why we are having an ice cream social to celebrate. You can't have fun if you are crammed in like a sardine."
The DJ said, "that's a pretty cool. Your place sounds like a nice place. I'll have to talk to my wife. I hope we'll go there someday." And I hope they do as we are very popular with first timers.
In most industries, they always say, bigger does not mean better. And it is especially true in the hotel industry. That is why for instance, we have the highest occupancy rates of ALL hotels in Palm Springs in the summer time. We are a 17 room inn, yet we will bring in almost 1.0% of the city of Palm Springs' bed tax in the summer, we are that busy and popular.
And this July, our occupancy rate is great. As an example, not only are our rooms sold out this weekend, we also only have 1 empty room this Wednesday and Thursday July 16th and 17th. One of the reasons we have such a nice resort and are such a great value is we have guests 7 days a week instead of just weekends like typical nudist resorts.
So if you have always wanted to try topless or nude sunbathing, we are the perfect resort. We are the most mainstream nudist resort in the US and are perfect for couples trying topless or nude sunbathing for the first time.
Give us a call at 800-786-6938 if you have more questions or to make reservations.
Sorry we are full for the world record skinny dip. However, if you have ever been a guests of Terra Cotta Inn you know we we don't over pack the hotel with people which is why we have one of the highest repeat guest rates in the travel industry.
We hope to see you soon in sunny Palm Springs!
