Dewey and his staff were there for everything we needed. I loved his music mix, I wish i had a collection like that! The massage therapists were some of the best we have ever had. If you want a new experience we highly recommend this resort:)

This was our first experience to an all nude resort, so we were definately shy in the beginning. But, everyone treated us with respect and made us feel really comfortable. The atmosphere is so tranquil, and I would definately recommend the couples massage. The whole property was really private and CLEAN! I've stayed in some 5 star hotels that were not this clean. I wish we could have stayed longer! THANK YOU!!!

Thank you so very much for your kind hospitality this past weekend and for the way in which you run your resort. As advertised, you have very much captured the essence of both the Desire/Hedonism Resorts yet bettered them both with your tireless efforts to make everyone feel right at home. Whether the comfort resides with your humorous instantaneous introductions made during each arriving guests initial tour or whether the comfort builds with each personal conversation as you graciously pour the beverage and/or colorful shot of the hour - we cannot stress enough how much you made us feel like long lost friends on a mini vacation. We will most definitely become regulars and regret not making the journey sooner. Again, thank you for everything and we look forward to seeing you soon.

All our best,

I want to start this review telling all who read this. I run a hotel so I'm going in with high standards already. DO NOT TAKE A CAB RENT A CAR.
My wife & I read up on this place way back in Dec. of 2008 we walk in after 6.5 hrs in a plane and going to ck in for 5 nights 6 days. As soon as the big black door opened and we walk in to the office we were made to feel that we were the only guest in the resort even if their was15 models and a photo shoot happening around us the owner himself gave us the tour the customer service from the owner, desk, housekeeping and maintenance was 5 star. The room was both clean & up to date. We loved to take nap in the king size bed. The food was great. Loved the pool hrs " open 24". Dance the night away. We never left & loved it. We have 7 kids and no time for us. Sea Mountain Inn introduce me to my wife again. Thanks. and we will be back.

My husband and I went for the day, so even though I saw into rooms, I do not have comments.

That said, it was amazing and I wish we could go every weekend ;)

I don't know the description of clothing optional, but unless they just came in from outside, it was nude- even when making reservations, Dewey made sure we were comfortable with that.

Yes there are personal "bedroom style" activities going on. They were NOT invasive. We never felt pressure to join anything, so we didn't. Easy as that. Look away, don't watch, etc. Whatever.

Lunch was fine. I wouldn't say delish, but fine. MORE IMPORTANTLY, where can you get a mediocre lunch, all the margaritas you can drink (just speak up and Dewey will bring you more!) for the whole day, and this environment----FOR $120 a couple? Sorry, but to get me as tipsy as my husband and I were, that would be a bar tab----without the vibe, scenery, or snacks.

By the way, as I found out, the word 'lifestyle' means MANY different things. Don't assume.

All in all, we had a blast, got an awesome tan, made new friends (platonic here folks, not in the 'lifestyle').

Me and my wife went there last Thanksgiving Long Weekend after hearing and reading about it extensively. To begin with, anyone looking for complete nudity and open sexuality all over the place, with no single men, then this is the place to be, at least in the western US.

Most of the couples are friendly and decent. You could get comfortable in their company even if you are not in the lifestyle.
Staff is also friendly, helpful and nude. 'Duvey' the manager is always around to give free drinks and encourage people. The small number of rooms is good for the size of the Inn. It does get crowded on summer weekends, but if you have your own room then you'll have space to relax or use the washroom, but if you are a Day visitor, then there's just one washroom and the lounge chairs will not be enough. On the good side, all those people will be a treat for the senses :-)

Now about the Inn itself; like many other reviewers here; This Inn is in no way the way it is described on it's websites and it is definitely not comparable to the Resorts of the Carribean, there is no comparison at all. Yes, the rooms are big and well furnished with LCD TV, DVD Player, etc. But the furniture definitely seems old, especially the couches and curtains. The management's response to this would be that they have spent thousands of $'s on getting everything new but still, it's easy to differentiate between old and new furniture/furnishings, etc.
The rooms also have a damp/muggy smell all the time and they are also not very clean, yes new sheets but the rooms are dusty. And the most negative thing about the room is that the restroom does not have an exhaust fan, just has a small (1ftx2ft) window up by the ceiling and maybe that's the reason for the damp smell in the rooms. No matter how the management is going to respond to this review, we still have to say that the Inn definitely feels/seems old.

Then the rates are also quite high per room/night. With the 2 nights we spent over $700, for which you could comfortably get 2 nights at some 5Star at Vegas. The free lunch provided is mostly chips/tortillas/fruit/salad and one main dish of KFC style chicken pieces and again not at all a "wonderful/delicious lunch buffet" as mentioned on the website.

Finally, the Dance floor; there is no way that it can accommodate more than 50 people at once and that too with the bed and other furniture taken out and it's a total joke when the management claim that it can hold 140 people. We are not complaining here, just correcting.
Oh one more thing, it's good that they party late till about 2-3am, but then guess what...? They start blasting music by 9/10am thru the speakers, ok so it's programed thru the satellite, but what about the volume, is that also thru the satellite?

This property is definitely not as advertised and also quite expensive. But in spite of all this we really loved this place and throughly enjoyed our stay. So if you are looking for Couples only sensual fun and freedom, then nothing can be better than this. But if you are looking for a quality Inn, then better try something else.

A few suggestions for the Management: 1.Instead of justifying and insisting that your furniture is new, (in spite of so many reviews saying otherwise), it'll be better if you just refurnish the place again. 2.Please do something about the exhausts in the restrooms and deal with the muggy/damp smell in the rooms. 3.You can definitely improve the lunch offered, both quantity & quality. 4.Any ways your rates are way too expensive, so at least in these bad economic time, it would not hurt to reduce the prices. 5.Arrange to have some daytime fun activities or games for the guests, instead of everyone laying lazily around the pool. Maybe you can start some team based games (men vs women?), Twister, Strip-Poker, also basic Pole Dancing lessons for the ladies, Stand-up comedy, sensual photo and video sessions for the couples, competitions of some kind (men vs women or couples vs couples), temporary tattoo (henna) application, body painting, etc. This way there will be more interaction between couples and a lot more fun.

seamountaininn, ceo owner at Sea Mountain Nude Resort and Spa Hotel, responded to this reviewResponded 6 February 2009

The Guests attended the sea mountain hotel and resort spa in November of 2008
-As of January 2009 there is a NEW kitchen
-A New second restrooms area-
and NEW furnishings although all the furnishings are less then 3 years old.-
There is also New seating for over 90 day spa night spa guests.We are pleased the reviewers loved their stay but it is unfair to compare the rooms to Las Vegas. Its not Las Vegas but one can not find a cleaner-upscale nude lifestyles resort in the USA. You cant get all the food and beverages you want and be nude and lingerie dance parties in Las Vegas no matter what the price is.
The sea mountain has never served KFC chicken -We create special food and chicken lunches on the weekend but not fast food for sure.
The sea mountain has awards for its MUSIC there is NO satellite -the music is hand picked and DJed all day and all night-to suggest its just randomly playing is the opposite of SMI- Sea Mountain is about art and music and total zen

First of all, if you live near the Sea Mountain Spa, you are lucky to have a place like this near you. Let's be honest, how many people live near a place that allows you the opportunity to lay out nude so often through the year?

However, if you live in NYC, Chicago, etc; and you say to yourself "we have already been to Grand Lido Braco, Desire Cancun, etc, let's try that place in Palm Springs" you will likely be VERY disappointed, as we were. Certainly, places like this have their place in the community, but it is un-ethical for them to claim that they are in the same class as those other resorts. We have been to all of those mentioned, most several times. Sea Mountain Spa pales in comparison. Having said all of that, it is still a fun little club that their local community loves, and for plenty of good reasons. However, it is not Desire by a long shot.

All of the people we met were very friendly and super people. The majority were late 40s or 50s, but they were all nice people, but as you might expect, there were a few younger couples also.

TIP: If you are traveling there for the weekend, "only reserve the 1st night". If you want to come back for the second day, they will happily book you. It is amazing how many people they can cram in that place. However, if you book two days, and decide not to come back for the 2nd, you will not get a refund "because you did not cancel within the cancellation period"
