Whoever said you don’t have to take your clothes off to have a good time has certainly never stayed at one of Fort Lauderdale’s clothing-optional hotels or guesthouses for men, proving that sometimes, to really let loose, you might just have to shed a few layers. Where the dress code is anywhere from “Fancy Flip-Flops” to “Birthday Suit Chic,” your suitcase is really just a formality and the poolside fashion is, well, au naturel. Considered the ultimate places to stay for naturists of the male persuasion, you’re going to find the only thing you need to accessorize your outfit is a cocktail in your hand. Remember, it’s not about freeing the body, it’s about liberating the soul. And maybe, just maybe, finding that one spot where tan lines dare not cross.

Read on to discover our favorites for clothing-optional hotels and guesthouses for men in Fort Lauderdale.

The Big Coconut Guesthouse

The Big Coconut Guesthouse is just a bridge away from sunny Sebastian Beach (it’s the gay beach) and a quick trip to all of the gay nightlife in Wilton Manors. Plus, some of the city’s best restaurants are just a stone’s throw away. Find all of the comforts of home in rooms that have all the goodies you need for a relaxing stay. Lounge at the beach, hit the shops on Las Olas, or make new friends in the garden patio, you’re never at a loss for things to do. 

Inn Leather Guesthouse and Resort

Catering to the leather & levi community, and considered one of the best located Gay Men’s Hotel in Ft. Lauderdale, you can come stay or come play at the Inn Leather Guesthouse and Resort. If you’re planning to stay, pick from suites, suites/playrooms, and studios, some with full kitchens. Each comes with your own leather sling. If you’re coming to play, day passes are available from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm. And, for some extra pampering, book an on-site massage. 

The Cheston House Gay Men’s Guesthouse

“All gay all the time,” is the mantra at The Cheston House Gay Men’s Guest House, located just two blocks from Fort Lauderdale Beach. It’s your open door to a private, tropical paradise, with a warm, friendly vibe that feels just like you’re hanging out at a friend’s place, but with all the perks of an exclusive resort. After a day of lounging at the private pool, or having soaked up enough sun at the beach, you can enjoy the daily cocktail party as a prelude to a night out on the town. 

Grand Resort & Spa

The largest gay resort in South Florida, the gay-owned Grand Resort and Spa has been welcoming gay men to a world where luxury meets leisure. This male-only, clothing-optional resort comprises four interconnected properties linked by garden walkways, offering flexible accommodation options. Its prime location is just steps from the beach and convenient to all of Fort Lauderdale’s attractions, restaurants, and clubs.

The Grand – When you step foot in The Grand, the first thing on your mind is how quickly you can ditch your bags and jump into the pool, or maybe book a massage.

Alcazar – Mid-Century architecture, giving a nod to the past while ensuring all rooms are updated with modern amenities, the Alcazar is comfort and relaxation at its finest.

Villa Venice – Featuring a collection of rooms, each with a tropical motif and Italian tile and marble baths, most rooms at Villa Venice overlook the courtyard complete with bubbling fountains, exotic orchids, and colorful birds. 

Worthington Resort – If you’re looking for more of a “studio-type” stay, the Worthington Resort’s rooms have king beds along with kitchenettes of varying sizes. 

Pineapple Point Guesthouse

Set across 2.5 acres of tropical landscape, gay-owned Pineapple Point feels like a “Key West-style” guesthouse, where each of its six buildings have their own charm. Choose from a deluxe room, with all of the expected amenities, to the three-level, “lap-of-luxury” Grand Villa, that includes a private pool, Jacuzzi, an outdoor tiki bar, and gourmet kitchen. While it’s not located in the “gay guesthouse district,” it is conveniently close to the “gayborhood” of Wilton Manors.

The Cabanas Guesthouse & Spa

The Cabanas Guesthouse & Spa sits on the waterfront in the heart of gay Fort Lauderdale, Wilton Manors. Featuring a full-service day spa, you can enjoy two swimming pools, a steam room, and a spacious in-ground hot tub, along with a daily continental breakfast. There’s also a Tiki beer and wine bar for evening cocktail get-togethers. And, you’re just minutes from some of the best shopping, dining, entertainment, and nightlife in South Florida.

Calypso Inn

Looking for something smaller, a bit more intimate, and budget-friendly? The gay-owned and operated Calypso Inn may be the perfect place for you. There are 7 buildings (rooms) that make up the resort, painted in nearly two dozen colors, all within a blue privacy fence. Off-street parking is provided for one car per room. Once checked in, stash your car keys as the central nightlife district of Wilton Drive is just a five minute walk away. Each morning you’re treated to a complimentary light Continental breakfast, served in one of the outdoor common areas. 

Ed Lugo Resort

A collection of 1950s-era bungalows that have been transformed into a stylish, clothing-optional gay resort, Ed Lugo Resort  has the perfect blend of traditional and modern design in each room. Choose from garden-style rooms with outdoor showers, two-bedroom garden-style suites, and pool-front suites available in both king and queen sizes, each with its own outdoor entry. Whether you’re swimming in the heated pool, soaking in the steamy hot tub, or relaxing in a hammock, you can enjoy your own little piece of tropical paradise.

The Agustin Men’s Guesthouse

For the independent gay traveler looking for a break from daily life, The Agustin Men’s Guesthouse is designed with you in mind. Looking to connect with other gay, bisexual, bi-curious men in the beauty of nature? Well, look no further. This guesthouse has much to offer including a spa tub, outdoor showers, a heated pool, designer beds, and a cozy outdoor lounge area.  It’s well-known in the local bear community for hosting gay events like the Bears of South Florida Pool Party and the Cannonball Party.

Casa 806

Casa 806, “where you can be naked all the time and everywhere,” is one of the few men-only, clothing-optional gay bed and breakfasts in Fort Lauderdale. Accommodating no more than three rooms of guests at a time, it’s located in the Wilton Manors neighborhood, giving you easy access to the local gay bars, restaurants, and clubs. Take your pick of two ground-level rooms with direct pool access, or a private upstairs bedroom with its own bathroom. A complimentary continental breakfast is served daily.

Casa Hermes

Capturing the essence of comfort with its modern pool, delicious breakfasts, well-designed terraces, and distinctive décor, Casa Hermes is a great choice when you’re looking for both style and convenience. Located within an easy walk to shops, restaurants, and gay bars in Wilton Manors, it puts you right in the heart of it all. While advertised as clothing-optional, it’s only for the pool area, not inside the guesthouse. And, although it carries a luxury price tag, its prime location and the experience you can expect, make it well worth it.
