Initial impressions – Arriving at Caliente Resort is like stepping into a secret oasis of lavish indulgence. You roll up to the guard gate, flash your IDs, and fork over a membership fee that’s surprisingly easy on the wallet. Cruising down the cul-de-sacs lined with model homes and more palm trees than you can count, you start to wonder if you’ve stumbled into a real-life episode of “Lifestyles of the Rich and Shirtless.” Parking in front of the grand entrance, with its fancy wraparound driveway that could double as a red carpet, you can’t help but smirk at the sheer audacity of it all. It’s like finding a diamond in the nudist-friendly rough, where luxury meets a “don’t take yourself too seriously” vibe. And you think, what the f&*k are we doing?!

“Stepping inside Caliente Resort is like entering a realm where hedonism meets hedonism squared. “ 

Inside Tour: After breezing through a no-fuss metal detector, you ascend to the second-floor main area, where the nightclub reigns supreme. Picture this: a sprawling bar that could rival the Vegas Strip, staffed by a squadron of 4-6 (super young and super hot!) bartenders ready to shake, stir, and pour your wildest dreams. Barstool seating lines the perimeter, creating a ringside view for the show unfolding on the dance floor, where a DJ spins beats that could wake the dead.

On the Veranda: Venturing outside, a smaller bar beckons with its own seductive allure, offering more seating that spills onto a wraparound, balustered veranda. From here, you can gaze down upon the tropical wonderland below: a sprawling oasis of pools, daybeds, and palm trees that sprawl across the bottom floor. It’s a sight that’s as intoxicating as the drinks and as inviting as the atmosphere itself—a paradise where every corner whispers of possibilities, both seen and unseen.

Bar – At Caliente Resort, the bars are the life of the party. Inside the nightclub, the mega bar pumps out drinks big enough to make you question physics—and your evening plans. Outside, a cozy bar sets the mood for intimate gatherings and acoustic vibes. Downstairs by the pool, drinks flow freely amidst a tropical paradise. Prices are fair, but watch out: pour sizes can be as generous as the bartenders are flirty. Speaking of which, the staff, while fresh-faced and seemingly straight-laced, leave you wondering if they’re here for the cocktails or a chance at something more. Hmmm… number close anyone???
DJ – The DJ at Caliente Resort is the maestro of the night (Thursday, Friday, Saturday only!), setting the stage with beats that pulse through the soul. On regular nights, hip hop and top-40 vibes fill the air, creating a groove that keeps the dance floor packed and the energy high. But on special occasions, like Saturday’s iCandy party, the DJ transforms into a wizard of EDM, weaving electrifying tracks that elevate the atmosphere to another level.
Staff –At Caliente Resort, the staff are sweeter than your favorite cocktail. From the guard gatekeepers to the metal detector maestros and the bartenders who mix with a smile brighter than the Florida sun, everyone’s here to make you feel like family. It’s hospitality with a side of sass, where every interaction feels like a warm hug and a shot of good vibes.

Vibe Check – Caliente Resort is the epitome of a laid-back, super-friendly vibe that’s as chill as a frozen margarita on a sunny day. Unlike your typical swingers club where the vibe goes from 0 to 60 in record time, here it’s all about easy conversations and genuine connections. People are not just friendly—they’re super friendly and, let’s face it, super DTF. Whether you’re lounging by the pool or mingling at the bar, expect a welcoming atmosphere where fun and flirtation go hand in hand. It’s a place where the drinks are cold, the conversations are warm, and the possibilities? Well, they’re as hot as you want them to be.

No Playrooms – Caliente Resort’s drawback? No playrooms. Thanks to ongoing permit issues, the fun is limited to poolside and hot tub frolics. While some manage to sneak in a bit of play, the real prize is scoring an invite to explore a villa. It’s like winning the lottery—once you’re in, the night heats up in ways you can only imagine. Here’s hoping those permits sort themselves out soon!

Guest List – Like any swingers’ paradise, you’ll find the seasoned pros mostly 35 and up, rocking their wisdom like badges of honor. Thursdays, aka Ladies’ Night, dials up the sophistication with a mature crowd—think 45+ with a dollop of fabulous 55+ flair. But come Friday and Saturday, when the dance floor heats up, a fresh wave of day-pass darlings in their 30s swoop in, adding a splash of youthful exuberance to the mix.

Feeling a bit shy? No worries. You can just come and dance the night away. You can enjoy the conversation serpentine pool and hot tub, clothed in bathing suits… Blowjobs may be happening poolside, so it’s voyeurism at its finest.

Cleanliness – Like a 5-star resort. Fancy to the extreme!
