A Newbie’s Guide to Desire Pearl

Why a naughty adult’s only resort can be great for couples 

Looking for a vacation to arouse some honeymoon-quality heat between you and your partner? Whether you’re hoping to ignite starry-eyed passion or Olympic-style mattress aerobics, Desire Resorts promises you’ll find it at their newest resort, Desire Pearl in Cancun, Mexico.

If you’re on the nervous side of curious, relax Bella. GoGirlfriend visited and we’re happy to report that Desire Pearl delivered everything we love in a couple’s vacation. Get excited and plan an eyes-wide-open visit with our 7 sinful secrets to a successful visit to Desire.

Talk it out before you go

talk it through before you goTalking may not be the sexiest thing you do at Desire Pearl but it will be the most important. Before you leave home, talk about your expectations, boundaries and wildest fantasies. This isn’t the time to be coy so get down and dirty with your partner, pardon the pun. Make sure your relationship is rock solid and built on trust and love with no hidden agenda. Couples who visit Desire in the hopes to fix something may find disappointment is their traveling-home companion.


The lobby is the swing zone

Check in to Desire with a mojito in the open air lobby and give yourself time to get your bearings. Clothing is mandatory here but it’s a loosely monitored term. Expect to see all manners of teasing attire but not much naughty behavior in this space. Use this time to snuggle a little closer to your partner and ask the concierge your burning questions.

Relax into your naughty

grab a drink at the jacuzzi barAfter dropping your bags (and clothes) in your room, head to the pool or Jacuzzi for drinks in one of the swim-up bars. Not ready to get nude right away? Ease yourself into it. You’ll find all manner of clothing around the pools – anything goes here.

Indulge your inner voyeur (or exhibitionist)

Get ready for a sexy poolside afternoon. Yes, you’ll see couples enjoying each other sexually in public. Yes, you may chat with people who’ve just had sex. Yes, it’s hot, sexy and a celebration of love. Just remember, it’s your choice to watch or not. Don’t worry about being approached though. We found everyone on the cautious side of respectful – No means No here. Always.

Satisfy your inner foodie too!

divine dining at the Desire PearlDuring our stay, Desire’s premier dinner restaurant, Aphrodite, was closed for renovations. The chef held a nightly gourmet dinner in a room transformed with billowy white curtains, a wall waterfall and an artfully constructed menu. Reservations were available at 7pm and 9 pm and meals stretched out a full 2 hours. If you have a time preference, book your spot the day before. Desire is an all-inclusive resort so there’s no extra charge for any meal. Alcohol is included as well, but if you’d like to enjoy a finer bottle of wine or top-drawer selections of your favorite liquor, you’ll pay extra. We splurged each night for a bottle of wine over dinner.

Spoil yourself (and your partner) at the spa

spoil yourselves with a couples treatmentLet’s cut to the chase. The Desire resorts all offer a wide variety of treatments but we recommend one of their signature massages – sensual or erotic. The sensual massage is light-touch and meant to stimulate your sexual energy. The erotic massage takes things one step further but both massages allow for you and your partner to enjoy each other afterward without the massage therapists present as well as Jacuzzi time with champagne and strawberries. Just remember, the happy ending is for you and your partner – your therapist is only there to get things started.

Fast track to naughty – if you dare

theme nights will tease and tempt you!Just walking in the playroom at Desire Pearl earns you kudos – this room is not for the faint of heart. While it’s a no-holds barred sex zone, we found that couples stayed to themselves. We advise agreeing on your boundaries before you enter the playroom as well as agreeing to leave when either of you has had enough.

Ready to take your vacation to the next (naughty) level. Get yourself to Desire Pearl and let your passions rule decisions during your stay. Everything here is designed to bring you closer together so why fight it?

  • On 5 Nudist Resorts that Will Blow Your Mind, John Ruze said "Hi Julia, There is a brand new, very popular nudist resort you should think about reporting on in your next article about naturism. It is the New Terra Cotta Clothing Optional Resort and Spa in sunny Palm Springs, California.. The original Terra Cotta Inn was a fantastic nude resort. Repeat guests from around the world stayed there. TCI was sold in Nov 2015 and greatly missed. Well, this July 2017, it was revived at a new location in Palm Springs. The site is HotelTerraCotta.com. Guests are super happy. It's perfect for couples and girlfriend getaways. And Tom and Mary Clare from the original Terra Cotta Inn work with us, so it has the same relaxing, fun feel. "

  • On An Open Letter to Hotels Everywhere, Lynn said "I agree on the night light thing. Since hotels have none, I end up keeping the bathroom light on all night with the door ajar. Windows. I understand in the litigious US of A, hotels need to prevent folks from throwing themselves out the windows (or else the hotel could be sued?!!). Ok, fine. But for those of us who dislike A/C and only use it when absolutely necessary, can't we still have the option for some FRESH AIR? There ARE ways to allow windows to open up only so much, while at the same time preventing an entire body from throwing itself out the window. Bedskirts. Am I the only one who gets the skeevies when I see hotel beds with bedskirts that hit the floor? I always had images of food crumbs, bugs, and god only knows what...as being hidden behind that bedskirt. I'd much rather a bedskirt that's at least 2" above the (usually carpetted) floor. Towels. Can't we get nicer towels that don't feel like cardboard? Carpetting. Am I the only one who never walks barefoot in a hotel room ...esp when there's carpet? Blech. I'm sure those things are very rarely cleaned. "
