When it comes time for couples to add a little spice back into their relationship, many opt for a getaway. And of course, the destination matters if the goal is to get your grown folk on.
The right spot can help a couple feel more connected and frisky. Over fifty percent of Americans say they’re more likely to get to it while away from home—and not just in the hotel bed, the Men’s Journal reported.
Apparently, traveling helps to reduce levels of the stress hormone cortisol. “As stress and anxiety decreases, mood increases—bringing many, often unexpected, positive benefits in how we perceive ourselves, motivation and productivity, and our general outlook on life,” Linda Papadopoulos, a psychologist who worked on an Expedia study, said in a statement.
So it goes without saying why couples should travel to the right places. Here are a few options to consider.
Hedonism II, Negril, Jamaica
We suggest liberated couples travel to Jamaica and stay at Hedonism II, one of the most famous clothing-optional resorts. Notably, the accommodation has a swingers reputation; however, it is an ideal place for sexual exploration for couples who don’t swing.
According to the Men’s Journal, the resort offers intimacy-focused events like sex seminars and tantric and Kama Sutra classes to help couples connect in erotic ways.
If you’re feeling skeptical, it may help to know the resort has two sides, “nude” and “prude”—the latter is “clothing optional,” and all guests are required to cover up in the main public areas.
One&Only Palmilla, Los Cabos, Mexico
Couples who need to relax and unwind can do so at Los Cabos, Mexico’s One&Only Palmilla. Located at the edge of the Baja Peninsula, the resort is romantic and breathtaking.
Couples can stay in a private villa that has floor-to-ceiling glass, so couples can spend intimate time while enjoying ocean views and sounds.
Guests can also rent a private cove with a “floating bed” and a beach butler.
Sandals Royal Caribbean, Jamaica
Ballerific couples wanting to splurge on a luxurious romantic getaway should look no further than Sandals Royal Caribbean in Montego Bay, Jamaica. The adults-only destination is ideal for a romantic retreat. The best part? Sandals Royal Caribbean features over-the-water suites situated on its own exotic private island, offering the perfect opportunity to get as spicy as you like.
Desire Riviera Maya Resort: Riviera Maya, Mexico
Another adults-only and clothing-optional resort by the water is Desire in Riviera Maya, Mexico. The resort not only boasts a sexy party scene, but there’s also a private beach, three swimming pools, and a nightclub with a stripper pole.
And to help increase the mood, guests can request the Fantasy Menu, which has your wildest—and freakiest—dreams, whether an intimate frolic in the sand or booking a bondage fantasy.
And if that’s not enough, the hotel has gone an extra mile to offer couples a professional erotic film session (editing included) that you can take home to keep things spicy there, too, Orbitz reported.
The Standard Spa: Miami Beach, FL
But, of course, Miami made the list. The adults-only resort, The Standard, is nearby the bustling South Beach area.
The Standard is known for its spa, which offers over 50 services and co-ed relaxation spaces–like a steam room, Orbitz reported. Couples can also spend time at the topless pool, where the cocktails are a hit.
