The Grand Lido Negril has been resurrected, as a much smaller au naturel resort. There are 20 some rooms, where the old a/n side was. It is part of a larger resort now, which took over the rest of the resort. It was supposed to open in February, which I assume it did.

I think the average price point is around $900/night...

Too rich for us most likely. I think I would be "uncomfortable" having a butler anyway. It is very encouraging that someone is willing to start up another clothing optional resort. so many have closed in the past few years.

Keep in mind that those are rack rates. They have had one 25% off sale already, but it's over now. I just look at the rack rates for Couples San Souci for spring next year and an Ocean Vehandah is $898 per night. But, the special promotional price is $481 per night. It's fairly common for resorts in Jamaica to have very high rack rates and then deeply discount. 50% off is pretty common. No way we're spending $900 a night, but $450 a night is doable.

GLN's booking engine is actually showing "WINTER SAVINGS 50% OFF" right now, but does not seem to be applying it to the quoted rate. I'll bet if you called them you would probably get that rate.

We are contemplating taking one for the team and exploring this summer.

I am afraid we will be the only ones there...

If you can go on that special, it's a good deal. If you do, would love to hear about it!
