Terra Cotta Inn picked as Best of the Best hotel by Palm Springs Life Magazine


Wow, times flies by. I've been wanting to do a story about how our resort, The Terra Cotta Inn clothing optional resort and spa was picked as one of the best boutique hotels in Palm Springs in December but haven't had the chance until now.

In the December issue of our local magazine, Palm Springs Life Magazine, the Best of the Best issue, we were picked as one of the 3 BEST of all boutique hotels in the whole Palm Springs area.

For years, Palm Springs Life Magazine had only 1 category for the BEST hotels and resorts in town. All hotels were lumped together whether you were a 17 room clothing optional resort like ours or a 500 room boring mega chain resort. Naturally, the boring mega chain resorts were always selected.

The local chamber of commerces, hotel association and others kept asking for a 2nd category where smaller hotels could be ranked. Finally in 2009, Palm Springs Life Magazine came up with a boutique hotel category and we were selected #2 of all smaller boutique hotels in the whole Palm Springs area. What is nice is the #1 and #3 hotels are actually small chain hotels with locations all over the US. Both places have Public Relations firms that work very hard to get those places noticed by the press. We truly were the ONLY independent hotel that was honored. And of course we have no PR firm pitching our resort to the press.

I have always said for nude recreation to gain in popularity, you have to be able to compete with regular textile hotels. Since we opened 15 years ago, I didn't want to be just the leader of nudist hotels in Palm Springs, I wanted to be considered the leader of all the small resorts in Palm Springs. And this magazine rating proves we are.

For instance, we were the FIRST of ALL hotels in Palm Springs that invested in a salt water system pool and jacuzzi which feels heavenly on your bare skin. We are still one of only 2 hotels that has invested in a state of the art poolside cooling system so our guests are nice and comfortable in the summer. So while we enjoy a 85-90% occupancy rate in the summer, all other hotels struggle to be busy on weekends, because they haven't invested in the poolside cooling systems.
We were the first small resort to get a spa license to offer massages. And our therapists have consistently been rated some of the best in the area.

We are still the ONLY small resort to serve restaurant grade fruit for breakfast like the larger resorts. It costs from 2-3 times the amount compared to fruit from a Costco or the grocery store, but it is picked ripe so it is fantastic tasting.

And there are lots more things where we are the leader in Palm Springs (for instance we have ALWAYS been considered the BEST VALUE small resort in town), but I won't bore you by naming all of them.

Now is the perfect time for a fun, romantic, unique vacation experience.

Never been to a clothing optional resort before? No problem. We are the most mainstream nudist resort in the US and are perfect for couples trying topless or nude sunbathing for the first time!

Give us a call at 800-786-6938 (toll free US and Canada) for more information or to make reservations.

Historic Inns of Palm Springs on NBC TV News


Every year in downtown Palm Springs, there is a tour of historic inns. Although we are a historic inn, we are not included in the tour as we are about 3 miles away from downtown.

We were built in the sunny part of Palm Springs. Downtown is right next to a
10,000ft mountain chain. Downtown is right in the shadow of the mountain. The Terra Cotta Inn was built away from downtown, so the sun sets on a lower part of the mountain for us. In the winter we get an extra 30 minutes of sunshine compared to downtown (and other nude places) and in the summer an extra 1 hour of sunshine.

This is one of the many reasons why we are one of the most popular of ALL resorts in Palm Springs.

NBC TV Los Angeles aired the tour this morning on the news.

Our clothing optional resort is also a historic inn. We were designed by Albert Frey who is Palm Springs' most famous architect. We were originally designed as a celebrity resort where Marilyn Monroe, Spencer Tracy, Hope Hope, Frank Sinatra, President Kennedy and many more famous celebrities stayed (we still have a few from time to time being so close to Hollywood).

Nudist are lucky as they get to stay in one of the best small resorts in all Palm Springs. Just this December in Palm Springs Life Magazine, the Best of the Best issue we were selected as one of the top 3 boutique hotels in ALL the Palm Springs area, pretty cool for nude sunbathers.

Now is the perfect time for a fun, romantic, unique vacation experience.

Never been to a clothing optional resort before? No problem. We are the most mainstream nudist resort in the US and are perfect for couples trying topless or nude sunbathing for the first time!

Small resorts are becoming popular in the travel industry


The travel industry is finally waking up to the fact that tourists are tired of the same old cookie cutter chain hotels.

They are finding out what the nudist industry knew all along, that travelers are becoming more adventurous and discerning. Some of the big chains are trying to create their own idea of boutique resorts like the Westin chain creating W hotels.

Having stayed at a W hotel, I found it to be no different than any other large chain hotel. Guests are just expected to overpay for the W's "hipness."

I think because guests are looking for more than just putting their head in a bed, small hotels like ours, if run properly are really popular. For instance, we have had the 2nd highest occuapncy rate of all hotels in Palm Springs for probably the last 8 years. Only the Indian Casino hotel is busier than us because they have a casino.

So if you want a nice, fun vacation, give us The Terra Cotta Inn clothing optional resort and spa a call at 800-786-6938. Visit our site at http://sunnyfun.com Hope to see you in sunny Palm Springs.

Small hotels, big business
April 15, 2007
More hotel guests are showing an interest in the type of originality and character found at boutique hotels. In competing against larger chains with bigger marketing budgets, smaller hotels often focus on their exceptional service and unconventional style.

As travelers become more adventurous and discerning, the small luxury and boutique industry is at their service.

John Sears, executive vice president of Boutique Hotels & Resorts International, an independent network of boutique hotels under one brand name, says visitors want their hotel address, like their home address, to reflect personal taste and standards.

“It is clear that the ordinary hotel trade drastically underestimated the demand for originality and character,” says Sears. “The tide has radically shifted.”
