Whether you want to recharge the romance or kick-start the passion of a new relationship, this all-inclusive, couples-only resort is the place to explore your wilder side.

At this unique island paradise, clothing is optional throughout the resort, with the exception of the lobby and dining areas. The resort features a secluded nude beach where guests can enjoy private sun beds, as well as a variety of water sports. At the pool, check out a free introductory scuba lesson, or just hang out poolside on the complimentary loungers, chairs and umbrellas.

Come evening, it's time to indulge at the rooftop Nude Jacuzzi Lounge Bar, where you can socialize in a 30-person hot tub with swim-up bar service.

Sneak away with your honey into the club's intimate couples-only Sensuous Play Room.

    What an awesome resort!

    We have visited many adult resorts in the past decade and I put this one on the top of our list. The staff is totally fun, friendly and helpful. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts to Candy, Edmundo, Africa, Gustavo, Eddy, Gloria, Pao and so many others. We met so many fun couples (no single men are allowed) and the atmosphere was both relaxed and energized. The food was excellent and the servers were fast. Security is top-notch and I was comfortable if my wife needed to run back to the room by herself. What a great resort.

    Desire / Art of Touch Workshop

    WOW! What a first trip. We cannot say enough about the resort, the staff, and especially the wonderful people that we had the opportunity to meet…and play with . We absolutely loved every second of our experience. The play makers really spice up the day’s activities, especially Pao, thank you! Africa definitely takes care of all your drink needs all day. Really the entire resort staff was wonderful. We did want to give a special shout out to Richard and Lauren. We started listening to their podcast Room77 and knew immediately that we had check out desire. They were so attentive via email, answering all our questions almost instantly it seemed. We highly recommend booking with them, they take great care of you. All the better we got to meet them at the pool upon showing up the Thursday we arrived. They were great and immediately had us first timers at ease. The Art of Touch workshop that afternoon was life changing and a great way to pop our cherry for the trip. We arrived at the disco early and took our spot. R&L walked through a soothing zen like ritual before teaching us all about pleasing the women with touch. The Yoni massage was great as we started with touch and worked our way across our partners body. R&L come around the room and give very personalized hands on instruction. As the experience ends partners are encouraged to play together as long as they would like. It is truly special. Richard and Lauren are truly amazing and truly care about all whom they come in contact. The Desire experience is like none other. We cannot wait to get back and thank you again to all the wonderful staff!

    Refund runaround.....

    We've been to Desire twice & had a good time on previous visits. Due to travel restrictions we had to cancel our trip to Desire this summer. We reached out a month before our travel date s and let them know that we couldn't make it this year & please issue a refund. The said it would take 7-30 days to issue a refund (seems a little excessive, but ok). It has now been well over a month with no refund. I did receive a couple of emails and voice messages offering me a discount for next summer if they could keep our $$$. I said no thank you & please refund our cash....the made me send all bank info & routing #'s (which I did)....still nothing. We won't be returning to Desire & I can't recommend it to anyone after they have kept a few thousand dollars from us.

    Desire RM June 17-22

    We are on our last night at Desire RM. Amazing experience! Wonderful staff! The guests are sexy and fun! Just incredible people! Very attentive and always accommodating. My wife has very strict dietary needs and they have more than exceeded her expectations and needs. Taking that worry away has made this vacation a resounding success. Thank You So Much Desire RM! We will be coming back again and again!

    Amazing Place

    Desire is an experience that can not be summed up in words. Choose any 5 star review here and they're all accurate. Everyone should experience Desire. The rooms are clean. The food is great and the staff are second to none. The people at Desire are the most important part. If you want to let go and surround yourself with warm wonderful friendly people this is the place to do it. We call Desire "The vacation Killer" because it will ruin any other vacation you will go on that is not Desire.
