• Exactly what does clothing-optional mean?

    If you choose to go topless or naked- in the pool area, at the beach or at the roof-top Jacuzzi Lounge, you may certainly do so. There is never any pressure for you, or any guest, to do anything that you might find uncomfortable. Our guests are mature and sophisticated; a “live and let live” philosophy is key to the enjoyment of an alternative lifestyle.

    Cover-ups, however, are required where food is served, in the lobby and certain other public areas. And although guests are expected to be fully dressed at the disco, this does not mean that they cannot wear revealing outfits; on the contrary, we are very open to sexy. The couples-only SIN ROOM, adjoining the Nightclub, is available for our guests who may want to explore alternative lifestyle options.

    Desire is firmly committed to maintaining a unique, couples-only atmosphere. This way, only couples are allowed. Our hottest spots, such as the Sin Room and the Jacuzzi Lounge, are not exceptions.
