My wife and I visited Sea Mountain midweek, looking for a nice nude getaway to bask in the desert sun. We weren't looking for anything other than a quiet pool, cold drinks and sunshine. Sea Mountain is a lifestyle/swinger geared resort (although that isn't made perfectly clear on their website, you should be able to read between the lines), and sexual activity was out in the open even during the week. Although we were assured that visiting midweek we would *likely* not have to contend with sexual acts in public, it was there. (no promises were made, not Sea Mountain's fault in the least)
The rooms are very nice, the staff is wonderful, the grounds are well kept but smallish. All of the staff is female, and again, very friendly and accommodating.
Although we found ourselves somewhat uncomfortable during our visit, it was our choice to try out Sea Mountain Inn. We came to see what it was like during a slow midweek, and found that we like the true nudist resorts much better. The sexual vibe is not for us. The title of this review is a bit misleading, as I don't believe that Sea Mountain is a nudist resort, it actually is a swinger resort where there is nudity.
I write this post in case there are couples out there like us that are looking for another nudist resort in the Palm Springs area to visit. Be aware of what Sea Mountain is (not beware, be aware), it might be just what you're looking for.....
I will say that I can cross off "get invited to join a threesome" from my Things To Do Before I Die list. :) (I declined)
