Cancun Nude Resort
Everything is Included Except Your Clothes
Mexico’s First Luxury All-Inclusive Nudist Resort
Opens with a Splash
By Madelyn Miller
Just one month since its opening, The Hidden Beach Resort - Au Naturel Club, an adults only all-inclusive, luxury nudist resort near Cancun, Mexico, is creating quite a stir. The recently opened resort is receiving hundreds of inquiries per day since its partnership with the Naked Air flight that departed Miami, FL in early May.
“Since the completion of the Naked Air flight, Hidden Beach has received tremendous interest”, says Lubo Krstajic, executive vice president at Karisma. “We have always felt confident about the strength of the naturist market, but we never imagined we would be receiving more than 400 information requests per day.”
According to the American Association for Nude Recreation, nude recreation and travel, a $400 million dollar industry, is quickly on the rise. Membership, which currently stands at 50,000, has grown by 75% in the past 10 years.
“With the increasing growth of this segment of the travel market, we felt that providing a more unique offering would be well received,” said Krstajic. “We believe Hidden Beach is providing a new luxury experience for the nudist traveler.”
Located in Kantenah on the Riviera Maya, approximately one hour south of Cancun, Hidden Beach consists of 42 oceanfront suites and all the services and amenities of a deluxe resort. It was uniquely created exclusively for the needs of nudist vacationers. Unlike other nudist resorts, Hidden Beach is not clothing-optional and offers a completely uninhibited environment, where guests can participate in a wide range of activities from nude sunbathing to nude dining and dancing.
A distinct architectural feature of the property is the artificial river that meanders across the property connecting all ground floor “swim-up” suites to the main pool and the “swim-up” bar. For beachfront access, guests can choose from first floor “swim-up” suites or second floor oceanfront suites.
All suites include a complimentary bottle of sparkling wine upon arrival, king size bed with turn down service, safety deposit box, private bathroom with tub and hair dryer, air conditioning and ceiling fan, direct dial telephone, satellite TV, DVD & CD Player, coffee maker, mini bar with beer, water & soft drinks stocked daily, spirits dispensers in each room (Whisky, Vodka, Tequila & Rum), and bathrobes.
The property features three bars, a disco and the La Vista a’ la Carte restaurant, which offers continuous food service between 6 am and 2 am. An exclusive all-inclusive program includes personalized check-in with champagne welcome, private concierge service, all meals at the a’ la carte restaurant, premium alcoholic beverages, cocktails, fine house wines, snacks, 24-hour room service, daily activities and beach sports including a scuba clinic in the pool, DVD library, giant beachfront hot-tub, chaise lounges, beach towels & floating mattresses, afternoon coffee and pastries, manager’s cocktail party and repeat guests’ cocktail party.
Guests at Hidden Beach Resort also have unlimited all-inclusive access to all facilities at neighboring El Dorado Resort (clothing required) which includes: three a’ la carte restaurants; three bars; fitness center, sauna and steam bath; gift shop; bicycles; tennis; kayaks; paddleboats; snorkeling; water polo; beach volleyball and ceramic painting.
All-inclusive rates range between $158 and $200 per person per night, based on double occupancy.
