Santiago Resort is a men-only clothing optional resort right in the heart of Palm Springs. It’s one of the area’s most modern gay resorts, too. I love Santiago Resort’s inviting décor. It’s simple, modern, and creates such a cozy and homey vibe.

Rooms have individual temperature control systems and all come with either a king-size bed or two queen beds.

Santiago Resort’s pool and surrounding garden areas are both gorgeous. There are plenty of nicely-arranged sun loungers to choose from. Another highlight is the resort’s outdoor garden shower.

I also recommend Twin Palms Resort Santiago Resort’s all-new sister property. While Twin Palms isn’t specifically clothing optional, it’s a beautiful and ultra-modern gay resort option!
