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!...

We booked a day trip, as a shore excursion on a 7 day Caribbean cruise. The price was very reasonably, and included transportation, a welcome snack, lunch, and a room (yes, we had a room for the day). The owner's granddaughter (Michelle) picked us up in her own car, and drove us the 1.25 hrs to the resort (it is...

This place has lots of potential because of its isolated location and infrastructure, but it is very poorly managed and overpriced! THE CONS: **We paid for the R&R package. Even at 50% off, it was much MORE EXPENSIVE than better places in other parts of the island. **The area is VERY WINDY. I would not recommend going during the rainy...
