My wife and I got a day pass for the day our cruise stopped in Routan. This place was the highlight of the trip. The resort is small, probably about 10-12 rooms, the clothing optional beach was also small, but not crowded at all. Everybody was nude so we felt comfortable also going nude. There was a larger non-nude beach...

Paya Bay is awesome. The beaches are small strips of beautiful white sand with perfectly clear Caribbean water - with the perfect water temperature. You can snorkel right off the beaches or take one of the twice daily snorkel excursions to fantastic reefs not far from the resort. The rooms are nice, the food is great and the staff is...

While staying at Camp Bay I came out to Paya Bay on several occasions. Although we had a kitchen, the soupa marinara (seafood soup) was a staple. We even brought containers and ordered it for take out. The soup is cooked in coconut milk and is truly a meal, with large chunks of lobster as well as conch fish, potatoes...

We stopped for lunch to do a survey for future trips. This resort is not easy to get to and would not be for someone that prefers to walk every where. It sits along a very rough dirt road and is not close to anything. Having said that, if you have personal traansportaion and like the beauty, solitude and seclusion...

As many other reviewers have noted, the grounds, landscaping, trails and beaches at Paya Bay are spectacular. It is truly a private slice of paradise and the clothing optional aspect makes it a very special place. The staff are very friendly and welcoming and the service was always excellent. Food in the restaurant is pretty good, though not truly excellent,...

Yesterday, my partner and I visited Paya and I don't have words to describe how magical our time was. I'll leave it up to Gabriel Garcia Marquez to illustrate that kind of beauty. I've never been anywhere like it - gorgeous trails, beautiful peaceful outposts and relaxation spots, plenty of places to explore. The water is such a gorgeous blue....

The resort grounds are simply amazing with hiking trails and secluded stops and beaches. The resort and room was great and the food was good. The challenge to us was 2 things - first on Tripadvisor it doesn't emphasize that the hotel is a naturist hotel (this is a new term for nudist) and during certain weeks, you may be...

Small property. Managed by the owner/family. Part is clothing optional, but not intrusive. Take snorkeling trip to Pigeon Cay. Stay in rooms on the cliff overlooking the ocean. Bring insect repellant though as the little sandflies are everywhere

We truly enjoyed our week at Paya Bay and plan to return. This is a serene sanctuary, the staff members and owners are delightful, our room on the cliff perched over the sea was simple and spectacular simultaneously. Yoga in this setting is a must, as well as snorkeling on the nearby reef. And the private beach and turquoise water...yummy!...
