- Hedonism II
There’s no better place to party this spring than Hedonism II. Found on the edge of the white sand beach of Negril, Jamaica, this adult-only, clothing optional, all-inclusive resort is famous for its judgement free zone, so feel free to get wild, or keep it mild if you prefer. Nothing at Hedonism is watered down, especially the drinks, which are all poured with premium liquors and top shelf brands preventing hangovers and allowing the party to go on all night long. Enter the Romping Shop, a playroom open nightly from 10:30PM – 3AM designed to allow couples, single women and invited single men the opportunity to explore and rediscover their personal boundaries in a safe environment. Hedonism fosters a sensual carefree atmosphere that encourages you to bring your fantasies to life. Every night has a different theme party and every guest is invited to indulge. Whether it’s leather and lingerie, a toga party or hedonistic school girls, each event is crafted to offer guests maximum opportunities to pursue pleasure. Partied out? Refuel with the fresh baked Jamaican patties available every day at the Beach Grill and endless jerk chicken platters.
