We have been to SMI twice in the last two years and both times were a nice chance for a convenient escape. There are no other locations in the U.S. or Canada that allow such a simple lifestyle friendly getaway. Both of our visits were during the week and seemed a little quieter than most week end reviews indicate. Still, the pools are very warm and comfortable, the staff and other guests, more so. We think the rooms are over priced, but, we do appreciate the value of being around a group of like minded couples. Sea Mountain is an easy 2-3 day holiday for anybody in western North America, and should be considered anytime blurry fun is on your itinerary.

Room Tip: Room #3 is near the pool and tends to be a little brighter and quieter. Room #11 is two steps from...

Thanks for enjoying the Magic of Sea Mountain Luxury Resort and Spas truly the only experience such as this in the USA>
The photos on the review seem to be about 4 years old and the property has undergone constant upscale transformation.
So please see the web site www.seamountaininn.com for more updated images.
We certainly feel the price of SMI is one of the best values in the USA -Many week nights at 199 per couple is a wonderful value. As we also say there are few places in the USA that give full breakfast full lunch -UNLIMITED beverages and 24 hour free fruits and power bars tons of munchies and other special goodies. Come Home SOON

This was our first visit. We've never done anything like this before and had no clue what to expect. It was my husband's mother's day gift. We went on a wednesday. All I have to say is it is the most liberating experience we've ever had. The freedom to allow the animalistic nature within our normally boring human bodies escape and take us to new heights and pleasures.

The person who greeted us was fantastic. Very accomodating. Margaritas were flowing and the pool was warm and inviting. The initial shock of seeing naked people only lasts a little while and you allow yourself to be drawn in.

We got a 1 hour tandem massage, which was great. Afterwords we took a dip and ordered dinner. The menu is a little pricey, however, we never had to put our clothes on and leave the resort, so the price was actually just right. Those of you who like to harp on them for the price can take a hard look at what you're paying for, convenience. So let it be. Dinner was tasty, the duck salad was great, the fettuccini was great, it was all great.

The visit was a little on the slow side, being a wednesday and all. But it was perfect for our first time. The sensory overload was not going to be a problem and we could just be ourselves. In the morning, Thursday, however, more couples were rolling in and met some fantastic people, including the nice couple from Cincinatti. Thank you for being so friendly.

Anyhow, to wrap it up, we will be back again, and again, and again ..... you get the picture. Thank you SMI for the great experience.

We have been to other life style resorts and heard about SMI from others. Overall it was an amazing experience. The staff was fantastic. They were always there and friendly and helpful and you truly felt like you got personal attention and they really cared that you were enjoying yourself. Dewey is just great. The atmosphere is extremely sexy but very friendly and non-judgmental. We met a lot of really nice couples and there were a lot of very sexy people; however everyone should feel comfortable here no matter what your age and body type is. It is a very welcoming and carefree place. There happened to be a LOT of pool side action when we were there but there was NEVER any pressure to do anything you didn't want to do; and there were plenty of couples that just watched on the side.
We stayed overnight and the rooms had very comfortable beds, nice linens and was spacious and well appointed. The only minor issue for us was that the door of this rooms faces the food area so the bright lights of the room shined in all night so eventually we had to use our towels to block the light. I would suggest room darkening shades on the door. Otherwise the room was great.
My only other suggestion would be to bring some food and snacks. While they do provide plenty of food, it was the exact same food every day..same breakfast, same fried chicken, same lunch meats. After 3 days, you want a variety. There was supposed to be a cook out but it never happened I believe due to weather, so we just ran out a few times for food. At night though they bring a menu around and there were lots of great options and the staff was fantastic about walking around to make sure everyone go to order and the food arrived pretty quick and was still hot and very delicious.
Overall an amazing experience and I wouldn't hesitate to return. I highly recommend going here! But it on your bucket list. It is worth it.

Room Tip: If you prefer quiet, ask to be on the pool side because during the night the party happens over by t...

We went to the Sea Mountain Inn for the first time on the advice of our friends. We have been to other clubs and resorts, so our expectations were high. When we arrived, SMI was so well concealed, it looked like any house/bldg in the area. However, once we were met at the door by Jennifer, we knew this was going to be a great trip!

Once inside we were met by Dewey and staff and given a tour. We discovered a tropical, sexual paradise! We spent the entire day/evening at SMI and our every wish was met; food, drink, fun...and lots of HOT sex! The best part...we met some awesome people, both regulars and newbies.

We are already planning our next trip to SMI and will make it a regular part of our life and lifestyle. Don't miss out on the Disneyland of the lifestyle scene..go to SMI!

My wife and I are in our early 50s and have been married for over 30 years. We are enjoying our “empty nest” years and are fortunate to now have both time and money to get out and enjoy activities we previously only dreamed about (and others we never even imagined).

About a year ago we visited Haulover Beach in Florida and were introduced to the wonderful feeling of being naked in the company of other like-minded enthusiasts. We have since spent some very enjoyable times at various nudist resorts.

Since we were planning a trip to the So. Cal area, we decided to spend a few days in Palm Springs and hoped we could find a resort where we could be naked and outdoors. We actually found 3 resorts and decided to try them all.

The first night we stayed at the Terra Cotta Inn. It was a great classic nudist resort – well maintained, great pool and hot tub, fun people and extremely accommodating owners. It was wonderful to swim and enjoy the sun au natural.

We spent the second night at the Desert Sun. This is a beautiful, spacious, friendly, very well maintained, plush resort. The Desert Sun has great amenities such as beautiful pools, hot tubs, tennis courts, exercise room, fantastic gardens . . . what a great place to relax!

We saved the most intimidating place for last - - the Sea Mountain Inn (at least we were intimidated). We had read the reviews and knew SMI was not in the same class as the Terra Cotta and the Desert Sun. This was definitely a big step for us, and we were anxious about what we were getting ourselves into.

We approached the front door nervously, but from the moment we were greeted by one of Dewey’s beautiful, friendly hostesses, our nervousness quickly melted away. Once we were inside, we were introduced to a tropical paradise. After a quick check-in, Dewey led us through the pool area introducing us to his other guests, many of whom we would get to know in ways we never imagined.

We were led to our room which was spacious and luxurious. We quickly shed our clothes and joined the other guests around the pool. One of the first things we were treated to was the sight of a couple making beautiful love right next to us. This was a first for us! After a couple days at nudist resorts where PDAs are prohibited, this was a bit of a shock. However, it seemed very natural and before we knew it my wife and I were enjoying each other out in the open, in the presence of others. It was fantastic! At the Terra Cotta and Desert Sun, these activities were restricted to the confines of our room. How incredible it was to be able do what comes naturally when and where we felt the urge.

Like many others that visit SMI, we are not “lifestylers”, but we never felt any pressure to do anything we were uncomfortable doing and always felt completely welcome and accepted.

All the great reviews about Dewey, the rest of the staff, the food, the music, the disco, etc. are absolutely accurate. We have already booked our next visit and give our highest recommendations for visiting SMI.

Room Tip: We stayed in the corner room by the hot tub and it was great. Some previous reviewers talked about...
