"Revealing" Poll Results:

81% of Luxe Travelers Are Losing Their Shirts —

Literally — While on Vacation

 
Hideaways.com Poll Finds Most Travelers Don't Pack Modesty...

 

PORTSMOUTH, NH (April 14, 2009) — A recent poll on www.Hideaways.com asked 271 high-end travelers if they are likely to shed their inhibitions — and their clothing — while on vacation. For 81%, the answer is yes: 61% say they'll join right in at a clothes-optional beach, and 20% say they'll work on an all-over tan in private.
 
Some 15% say they'll go to a clothes-optional beach but won't be seen in the buff themselves, and only 4% say they avoid clothes-optional beaches and won't even skinny-dip in private. Of the travelers who responded, 73% were male and 27% were female.

Hideaways.com conducted a similar poll in 2004. At that time, 79% of high-end travelers said they'd shed their clothing while on vacation, while 21% said they'd never reveal it all when they travel.

"Slightly more people seem to have lost their inhibitions in the past five years," says Mike Thiel, President and Founder of Hideaways International?, Inc. For an explanation, Thiel jokes, "Perhaps the health message that we all need more Vitamin D is catching on, or people have even more incentive to travel light, what with the airlines charging for checked baggage."

For those looking for a vacation that combines in the buff with in the lap of luxury, Thiel reveals his top take-it-all-off destinations and lodging options:

•    St. Barth: All beaches on the island are topless, and two — Gouverneur and Grande Saline — are unofficially clothes optional. Guests can also skinny-dip in the private pool of their luxurious cottage at Hotel Le Toiny.

•    French St. Martin: This island has a split personality. Its Dutch side is rather puritanical, but on the French side all beaches are topless, and Orient Beach is clothes optional. Guests can also take it all off on the private deck or skinny-dip in the private pool of their sumptuous villa or suite at La Samanna.

•    Isla Mujeres, Mexico: Even though Mexico as a whole is fairly conservative, the island's North Beach is pretty relaxed about toplessness. Guests can get an all-over tan while on the private terrace — complete with outdoor Jacuzzi® —  on the top level of the ultra-luxe, tri-level Presidential Suite at Hotel Villa Rolandi.

•    Any (warm) destination, really. Renting a vacation home, like an Italian villa or a California beach house, offers space, freedom, and often a private pool to work on a total tan. For 30 years, Hideaways has been a leader in international private home rentals; just some of its selections can be found on www.Hideaways.com.
