Perhaps you’re fleeing from the oncoming damp, icy winds, and the exhaustion that tends to accompany entertaining bored kids on a snow day.
Maybe you even live in the Sunshine State and need a sexy weekend to reconnect.
Whatever your reasons for wanting a respite from children, pair it with some sunshine and you’ve got yourself a real vacation.
Florida with its continuous sunshine has plenty of places to satisfy your desires. While few resorts bear the exclusivity of a truly adults-only, these resorts cater to those looking for an experience beyond the compound of an all-inclusive abroad.
We invite you to start dreaming of a sexy adults-only Florida resort getaway!
Hydrotherapy at The Standard Miami Beach
If you truly seek a break from the outside world and want to indulge in a seemingly limitless amount of spa time, head to The Standard Miami. The boutique hotel pays homage to communal bathing rituals through its indoor/outdoor adult hydrotherapy playground where you can spend your day moving from cold plunges to mud baths to soothing jacuzzi bubbles. Let your hydro session follow up your holistic stretch spell with expert yogis and pilates teachers, and you’ll be sure to feel the kind of clarity only sweating it out can provide.
Inside the rooms, water remains an outstanding feature in the deep soaker tubs, some inside the subway tile bathrooms complete with rainfall showers, while others lay out on the terrace hidden from neighboring views. With its 21-plus age restriction, you can be assured fellow guests are seeking the same serenity.
An Oasis of Luxury at H20 Suites
While located in Old Town Key West, the H20 Suites were designed to keep you inside and they make it easy, courtesy of personal wet bars and private plunge pools in the Deluxe Luxury suites, directly accessible from your private terrace.
We would label the property’s stylish design an ‘oasis of luxury,’ complete with a rooftop pool and lounge area that catches every minute of the sun’s rays and an accompanying bar serving up delicious cocktails.
Concierge service can help book any activities that might tickle your fancy and views from the rooms point towards tropical foliage that shades many of the expansive balconies and their accompanying private pools from view.
Gourmet Bed & Breakfast at Hoyt House Inn
An appreciation for the finer things in life only comes with age, and at the Hoyt House Inn, you’ll be able to enjoy this luxury in peace. Your holiday home is housed in a Queen Anne mansion dating back to 1905 and surrounded by old-growth oak trees. Breakfast is a three-course extravaganza, with buffet appetizers and six entrees to chose from every morning.
Hoyt House is located on the lovely Amelia Island where the Atlantic laps the white sand shores and the idyllic surroundings are sure to lend their influence in shaping your perfect, relaxing holiday. You’re just a short ride aboard one of the complimentary bikes into a town dotted with antique shops and art galleries. The nearby beaches can be explored by swimming laps among the waves or even trotting alongside the surf on horseback.
Speedos and Sunshine at The Grand Resort and Spa
The Grand Resort and Spa in Fort Lauderdale has won numerous accolades as one of the best global all-inclusive resorts, often being the only gay exclusive property on the list.
If you’re looking to lose the tan lines, nude sunbathing is welcome in the courtyard. Nearby the resort, you’ll also find several gay-friendly beaches.
The upscale resort also has a large lap pool and a spa with treatments designed with the male in mind. Free breakfast and plenty of complimentary amenities like cocktail hours, mimosas and beach chairs and umbrella rentals should seal the deal on booking your gay getaway.

Regain Your Balance at Casa Morada
If your version of serenity is simplicity, the Casa Morada’s minimalist ethos is the perfect remedy. The boutique property operates only 16 oceanside suites with ages 16-plus welcomed to the calm of Islamorada’s natural vegetation. The island’s assets are best enjoyed from aboard a kayak (keep an eye out for manatees bobbing along!) or bike, both available for free rental to guests.
The heated freshwater pool is nestled straight into the bay and is joined by plenty of shaded hammocks designed to lure you into lazy afternoon naps. For those looking to regain some physical and mental balance while they unwind, Casa Morada offers free yoga classes on Saturday and Sunday mornings. The hotel can also arrange for activities like sport fishing, snorkeling, and tours of the Everglades.
Experience Classic Key West at The Southernmost Inn
For those who want to party by night but aren’t willing to give up on the idea of a calm oasis by day, the Southernmost Inn is a short walk from the raucous bars of Duval Street but tucked away among the quaintest of Key West’s historic buildings.
The Inn was once a cigar factory and retains emblems of its past in details like the tobacco-sorters’ bay windows and broad sun porches. An urban tropical garden surrounds the two pools and accompanying jacuzzis and an outdoor bar serves up beverages in the sun with a happy hour — drawing in most guests to mingle. A free breakfast is also dished out in a colonial-style wood-paneled breakfast room every morning.
An Ode to Art Deco at The Julia Hotel
For the discerning attendees (or even wannabees) of events like Miami Art Basel or Design Week, few things make the knees as weak as the combination of crisp minimal design, soaring ceilings, bright windows and bold art installations. These delicious details await your stay at The Julia; housed in a historic Art Deco building, your kitten heels will clip-clop over the original Cuban tile floors as your eye glides approvingly over the deep coral mid-century lounge chairs.
The rooms not only appear delightful but have been smartly designed to maximize on space with built-in furniture and USB outlets everywhere you might need one. Shout-out to the hotel for doing their bit for sustainability and providing Tara Smith vegan toiletries. The Julia knows how to provide for their guests with towel and lounger service awaiting at the beach nearby and heaps of fresh, buttery pastries at the continental breakfast.
