Rave Reviews with Clothing Optional Vacations

Ken & Beth

July 2020, this was our very 1st nude resort experience. We came for the day prior to checking into an Airbnb.  We are in our late 40’s and felt extremely comfortable undressing and walking up to the pool nude.  People in the pool were absolutely friendly and normal adults.  The resort was clean and the staff were attentive and helpful.  We will definitely be coming back to stay a few nights.

This was our second visit to the Desert Sun Resort and it was even better than the first time, as before the staff were outstanding, friendly, fun and welcoming and the rooms are great and the wonderful guests we met around the pool were just amazing. Pool Volleyball was a blast! Pool side service, conversations, making new friends, sunbathing, jacuzzi. restaurant, strolling the beautiful grounds, everything all the while in the nude. Awesome!!!!
We can’t wait to return to this desert Shangri La of Nudity.
Thank You Desert Sun!!!!!

What an experience for my wife and I! It was our first time and everyone was great! We stayed until we had to leave. We had such an amazing time that we booked another day stay the day before we had to go home. This day was even better! The couples we met and the friendships gained are priceless! The next time we visit we will stay at Desert Sun and make it our home base for Palm Springs! Thanks for the hospitality and the memories we will always cherish! Can’t wait to return!!

Our first trip to Desert Sun was for New Years Eve and we had a ball! She was a bit shy about being naked for about 5 minutes but after that she absolutely loved the environment and the carefree feel. Because it is for couples only, there is no weirdness at all; just nice people enjoying the sunshine. On New Years eve, my lady and I were dancing with many other fun loving couples to great music. The food was wonderful and the people we met were so friendly and open. The costumes were outstanding and piece by piece they all came off until by midnight we were all dancing naked to great music. Great fun!!
The grounds, pools and facilities were immaculate and the staff were extremely accommodating in every regard. We have been back twice since then and had a terrific time, playing tennis, volleyball, and walking the grounds. The owners run an absolutely first class facility with attention to every detail and strict rules about privacy and etiquette . We have since made friends with several couples that own condos there as well as others staying in the guest rooms.  Our Rating - Five stars *****!!


I’ve been a solo nudist my entire life. My visit to Desert Sun Resort was my first social nudity experience. I’m not exaggerating when I say I’ve never been so comfortable. The staff were incredibly friendly and welcoming. The grounds are beautiful, well-maintained, and comfortable. The people that I met were all amazing, friendly, and completely accepting. It’s so fantastic to meet and connect with others who share the same love and enjoyment of being nude. I can’t wait for my next trip to Palm Springs and Desert Sun Resort!


Have just spent four very relaxing days at Desert Sun.  Attending a conference. I could not wait to get back to the resort after each day and take off all my clothes and RELAX.  The whole experience from check in to check out was enjoyable. Also I would like to recommend the spa where I got an excellent massage one evening.  I will be back and next time I will bring my wife who was very jealous at missing out this time.

We have been irregular visitors due to being based in Queensland Australia but when we visit the US we always include a weekend chillout in Desert Sun. In all our travels we have never found a more relaxing and professionally run naturist resort as Desert Sun - its why we come back!. It is just so easy and go through those doors and you are in anoher world. Congratulations.

We have been coming here since 2001 and have seen many changes through the years, and the present years are by far the best! This stuff is just absolutely wonderful, and the food at the café is great also, along with all the people .


This was our first nude experience and we loved it. My wife was initially very apprehensive and very nervous to say the least. However, DSR was the right place for our first experience. Last march we stayed for 3 days at the resort and we wished it would have been longer. The staff and the owners are very courteous and they make you feel at home.  The massage is superb and the food at the restaurant is excellent. We had brought clothes thinking that we would probably go out for dinner/entertainment but we never left the place during our stay. My favorite highlight was dancing in the nude with my wife on Saturday evening . That was an amazing , unforgettable experience.

We really love this place, found it about three years ago and are preparing to visit for the third time this week.  Everything about Desert Sun is first class including the staff.  We have experienced clothing optional facilities in several locations, but will continue to return here.  Oh, one other benefit offered at Desert Sun is that their restaurant serves one of the best hamburgers we have eaten.


We have been a regular at Desert Sun Resort for over 8 years now, and I have to say that it is, by far, one of our favorite places in the world!

The grounds are top notch; my wife and I love taking leisurely strolls around the grounds and seeing the sights and sounds. We have a favorite balcony that we love to sit on, overlooking the beautiful San Jacinto mountains.

What truly makes DSR special to us is the people! We get here and feel like we never want to leave.

The owners and the staff of the resort are friendly, gracious, accommodating, and have made us feel like part of the DS family from day 1. You will simply not find better anywhere else.

DS is a truly unique place. Take it from us, if you’ve never been there, GO!

This was my wife and I first nude experience of any kind. Hands down it was the GREATEST experience we have ever had. Tracy made us feel so at ease while checking us in, answering all our questions and warming us with her beautiful smile. Our actual first time nude was with Tammy and lunch, she made us feel as thought we had known her for years. From here it just got better and better. Made many new friends and was made welcomed by all. Will be back as soon as we can. Our only question…why we waited so long


This was my first time here and I felt completely relaxed and at ease as soon as I arrived. Staff are fantastic and the grounds are immaculate. Already booking my second visit.

My husband and I stayed a weekend at the Desert Sun Resort and we thoroughly enjoyed it. I was a little apprehensive about it being nude (since we have never been on a nude vacation before), but within minutes, I was very comfortable. The sun hitting on my naked body was liberating. Both the guests and staff were very polite and made me feel comfortable.

My husband has a very stressful job and was looking forward to this trip. He was completely relaxed for the first time in many years. It made our trip a “second honeymoon”.

This resort has beautiful grounds and is very clean. They do a great job of keeping it serene with the waterfalls, running streams, and fountains.

The food was outstanding in the restaurant and the massage was one of the better ones that we have experienced.


check in to check out—“perfect”


Truly LOVE this place.  It is one the only single male friendly resorts in Palm Springs. I very much appreciated this as my wife was unable to attend this trip with me.  All staff members and guest alike were very friendly and nice to chat with. This also includes the grounds people. The pools and hot tubs are top notch. The grounds make one feel very comfortable and you have no idea that a city sits just outside the main doors.  I am already planning my return trip to Desert Sun Resort. THANK YOU to the owners and staff a like!


Over the years my wife and I have stayed at all the other clothing optional resorts in the Palm Springs / Desert Hot Springs area, some more than once.  When we finally made it around to the Desert Sun Resort we realized that we’d saved the best for last and have since returned for two more visits. The amenities, staff and location can’t be beat.  We’ll be back again (hopefully soon) and will definately recommend the resort to friends.
