Nudist Travel is Big Business
Vacationing at nudist resorts is more popular than ever. For instance, Terra Cotta Inn is the most popular nudist resort and one of the most popular of ALL resorts in the whole Palm Springs area. In December 2010, Palm Springs Life Magazine in their annual Best of the Best issue picked us as the BEST small resort in the whole Palm Springs area. It's pretty cool that nudists get to stay at the Best.
But, having been open 16 years, we know being the Best is relative as people have different ideas as to what is the best. For instance, if you are a snob or pretentious, you will not enjoy yourself here. Our guests are very friendly and fun, not stuck up. So we would recommend other places for snobs were they would be happy feeling superior.
There are nudists who don't like other people around. They only like to go to nude places where no one would see them. If you want no one around, then tell us. We are happy to recommend places that have low occupancy rates.
This weekend, we had a couple come by for day use. They had thick eastern European accents, but lived in Orange county, Southern California.
We always ask people where they have been and we always then compare and contrast ourselves so that they know are going to the best place for them. Of course, we know most other places don't care enough to screen people like that as we always have guests tell us they wasted a vacation at some other naked place as they thought it would be a nice place like Terra Cotta Inn and they weren't told they were very different.
Anyway, I talked to this eastern European couple and it was hard understanding them. They had been to another place in town before. When they got here, the woman was disappointed that we did not have single men around as she told me enjoyed "playing with all the guys." I didn't question her as to what playing was, but told her to go to that other place as she would be happier there. If it wasn't for the communications barrier, I would have told her not to book here as we weren't what she was looking for when she first called.
Being the Best, we care about our guests and people who might take a vacation with us. We want to make sure they are staying at the correct place for them. Many hotels have a "head in bed" attitude as they don't care if you ever come back. They want your money now. We don't. We want the long term relationship which is one of the reasons why we have one of the highest repeat guest rates in the whole travel industry at just over 80%.
Because of our reputation of being the best in town, we care about you. We care enough that we will even refer you to another place if it is right for what you are looking for.

In my opinion nude resorts in Mexico and the Caribbean are teh biggest offenders that only care about your money. Most are owned and operated by non nudists and are only interested in "heads in beds."
So ALWAYS ask questions of resorts before booking so that you will know the type of place you are booking. An easy question to ask is if the owners work nude, (Mary Clare and I work nude). If the owners are nudists, you know the guests will be too. If the owners stay dressed a lot, you know the guests will too as guests always follow the tone set by the owners and it may not be right for you.
Now is the perfect time for a fun, romantic, sunny, unique vacation experience. One that you will want to repeat over and over.
Never been to a clothing optional resort before? No problem. We are the most mainstream nudist resort in the US and are perfect for couples trying topless or nude sunbathing for the first time!
Last November, MSNBC picked us as the Best value nude sunbathing resort in the western US.
