As the 30th Anniversary of Nude Recreation Week (the week of July 4 to 10) is being celebrated, The Terra Cotta Inn Clothing Optional Resort and Spa in Palm Springs, CA is a major reason why the newest vacation trend in the U.S. is nude sunbathing. A recent national survey reported that over 18% of Americans find a clothing optional vacation experience highly desireable.
People have been nude sunbathing for centuries. One of our founding fathers, Ben Franklin was a major advocate. However, it was not until recent years that nude recreation moved away from the concept of being considered "nudist colonies." Now you will find some of the most luxurious resorts around catering to nude sunbathers. And the most mainstream of these new style clothing optional resorts is The Terra Cotta Inn of Palm Springs, CA.
Tom and Mary Clare Mulhall, the owners of The Terra Cotta Inn, had a new concept when they started their resort 10 years ago. "When we opened our hotel in Palm Springs," Tom explained "we wanted it to have all the amenities that you would find at one of the top boutique resorts in the country. We found there were no clothing optional resorts in the U.S. that catered to "first timers." No places went out of their way to capture and fulfill the vacation dreams and wants of mainstream America. We were even told by a long time so called nudist "leader" that unless we made everyone play volleyball or shuffleboard, we would fail."
But, by deciding to be unique and spoil and pamper their guests just like at the top regular hotels, the Terra Cotta Inn not only became a success story, it has rapidly became the most popular hotels in Palm Springs (http://www.palmsprings.com). Tom, the owner, was elected to the position of President of the Palm Springs Chamber of Commerce. The Terra Cotta Inn is usually featured as one of the best resorts to stay at in town by the media. They have had repeat guests from 65 different countries, vacation at their resort. They average just over a 70% repeat guest rate. Now other clothing optional resorts around the country are starting to follow their lead.
So how did the Terra Cotta Inn celebrate this special week? All of their guests loved watching the Fourth of July fireworks while lounging in their birthday suits at the resort. Only in America do you find one of the best boutique resorts to also be a clothing optional hotel.
