It might be the way that Bella, the house dog, came running to the gate to welcome us back from a hard day at the beach. Maybe it was the sugar birds, fluttering down onto the outside bar for their sweet morning treats while we sat with our morning coffee. Or it could have been the hot tub or the open-air showers or the wonderful pool that made us feel we were at a Roman spa. It certainly could be the huge, soft, luxurious beds that awaited us at the end of the day (or earlier). But most likely it was all those, combined with the wonderful care and attention we received from our hosts Chloe and Thierry that made our stay at Club Fantastico such a delight.
And then there are the other guests. Simply put, you meet the nicest folks naked.
Club Fantastico sits high on the hill above Orient Bay. It’s a three minute drive down to Orient Village to the nearest boulangerie for your breakfast croissants and the day’s baguettes, still warm from the oven. It’s only 5 minutes to the beach bars on Orient and the beach at Club Orient is only a couple more minutes away. Just as well as we really want to spend as little time as possible with clothes on.
The Club is fully gated and guests are given their own keys, so access or security is never an issue. If you don’t want to leave the place you don’t have to. There are loungers and floaters aplenty if you feel like a day of doing nothing but lying naked by the pool. The professional-grade kitchen is available if, like us, you like to cook for yourself from time to time. On top of that, Thierry will happily prepare a meal to your requirement for a special occasion. In fact, Thierry does everything happily.
Being at Club Fantastico doesn’t feel like being at a resort. It feels like sharing a wonderful home with a bunch of good friends you’ve only just met. We visited in August and are counting the days until we go back.
