We heard from another couple that Sea Mountain Inn was a great place to stay so we decided to book a suite for 3 nights from Thursday to Sunday. We had our best vacation ever!! The atmosphere is one of complete freedom. Everyone we met there was super friendly including the great staff. You can bask in the sunshine, get... More

It was a great experience overall. Judgement free environment. Our room was really nice and the staff was friendly. The music was fun. If you want an interesting and relaxing weekend, we highly recommend it! Dewey was a great host. We hope to be back soon!

We recently returned from our sixth stay at Sea mountain Inn and Resort. As we lay out soaking in the warmth of the sun, luxuriating in the soft winds blowing across our bodies, nodding to the soulful sounds of reggae music in the background, we reminisced about our first visit to this wonderful oasis. About five years ago, we took... More

We have stayed at similar resorts, Hedo in Jamaica & Terra Cotta in Palm Springs and we were disappointed here. The resort is run by a number of very young girls. Interesting but some are lazy and/or poorly trained. Also, one of the biggest problems for us is the fact this place is 'smoker friendly'. Wow.... surprising when California was... More

Is Dewey is a Young girl who runs the Sea Mountain Hotel Club Spa ? He will love that one! Actually SMI Sea Mountain Resort and Spa Hotel and Club is run by an all female chain smoking staff who flick ashes on all the guests and throws their cigarette butts in the pools. -NOT -- We do jest, but...

Just got home from our first trip to SMI and already looking as to when we can go again. My boyfriend and I had been very nervous to plan this NO clothes vacation due to age (late 40's), shape of our bods (what's a gym membership?), and years of blueprinting of religious upbringing, society what you do or don't do...

Thank you Sea Mountain Inn for saving our lives. With the sharing of your loving, open heart - we now have a true sense of belonging. This is the real world. Peace & happiness. Anytime We feel stressed now, just thinking of sea mountain brings us back to Zen. Thank you, Casey LaRios & Gabrielle Matyi

This was one for our bucket list. We did the day spa & massage special So close to home but first time for us. It was so relaxing, clean, no pressure, good snacks. The best couples massage ever. Don’t put it off like we did go now. We will be back soon to stay overnight.

We arrived on a Saturday afternoon and it looked a little sketch from the outside, but an oasis inside. It was wild and crazy when we got there and we wondered could we do this for three nights ? I'm now sitting by a pool at a Palm Springs hotel and wish we were back at Sea Mountain. Especially since... More

We have been to many lifestyle resorts and clubs over the past 10 years. We were expecting a bit more of a "SPA" atmosphere as that is how they market themselves. After a 6 hour Mario Andretti interstate drive we arrived to very heavy metal music being blasted throughout the compound. This really did not make for a very good... More

Sea Mountain Resort is one of the most romantic places we have ever been. It is a great place to recharge your relationship. Every time we leave, it’s like we are newlyweds again. Even if you are not into the swinging lifestyle, it is a great place to meet new friends and reconnect with your old friends. It is the... More
