Why Go To: Desire Riviera Maya Pearl
The couples-only clothing-optional Desire Riviera Maya Pearl Resort & Spa (aka ‘the New’ Desire), has 88 guest rooms and suites in an elegant and intimate village-style setting, and offers a comfortably relaxed vibe.
From gourmet restaurants serving exotic cuisine to Bali beach beds on soothing white sand, Desire Riviera Maya Pearl offers a sensual, seductive environment, inviting you to relax and renew your relationship, to rekindle your intimacy, to make new friends with like-minded couples.
In the late afternoons, the party moves to the large outdoor Jacuzzi with its own swimup bar, outdoor shower, lounge area and day beds…and where you might find some couples getting a bit frisky — it’s one of only two public areas where sex is allowed (the other being the “Sin” Room at the nightclub, a private couples-only, guests-only environment for play).

Each moment is a new experience for continuing pleasure, with relaxing spa treatments to captivate you, or a fantasy menu dedicated to please you.
