Good things do sometimes happen for us west coasters
Just spoke to Tom M. and he and Mary Clare are consulting/managing a recently (July 25th) opened C/O resort.
Twice the number of rooms as the old Terra Cotta and twice the area. New website and resort phone nr. should be up in a week or so.

I had heard this from a friend as well.........it will be great to have another location for C/O vacationing in Palm Springs. We will be at Desert Sun in October so will plan a visit to check out the new property!

hmmm-Have not seen anything in the local news or newspaper regarding the opening of a new CO hotel. In a tourist town these things normally get reported. Hope it is true. Desert Sun Resort could use some competition. Their prices have been going up steadily since TerraCotta shut down.

It is true ... The Terra Cotta is now open and has been taking guests since July 25th. Website is up. First NON Smoking nude/clothing optional resort in the US! The entire property is non smoking.

It's the previous Warm Sands Villas ... now "The Terra Cotta" ... not the Terra Cotta Inn.

Do you have a link FireProf? Searching The Terra Cotta still gets the old Terra Cotta Inn results.

Thank you. I see the owner is from Washington and states that Tom and MC are "consulting with us". Probably a very wise decision on the owner's part, Tom and MC have a very strong following.

We may give this a try, although we personally prefer the nude rule rather than c/o. We're more uncomfortable being nude when there are people around us that choose to remain clothed.

agree with you. Not sure it like the nude or C/O thing either.Would make us uncomfortable as well. Wish them all of the best.

The Terra Cotta Inn had a large following. Tom stated that their business had a conservative 75% occupancy rate, year round. We were frequent visitors for over 17 years. There were many times we called and could not get a room because they were full. Often heard the same from many of their guests and people we'd met there.

The Terra Cotta Inn was clothing optional but in all those years, and all those visits ... I can count the number of people in bathing suits (all of them women) on one hand. Many a first timer came out in a bikini, left less than an hour later and came out topless, only to emerge a couple hours later completely nude. Most first timers would say ... "there's only one way to do this ... jump in with both feet!"


There was only one couple that visited annually. He was naked all the time, his wife was not but she never ventured far from their small patio out front of their room. She never wore a bathing suit so she never ventured over to the pool or hot tub. She visited so her husband could visit. They'd stay for an entire week.

The new Terra Cotta is couples only and it's Smoke Free! The first smoke free clothing optional resort in the US. That's huge for many people that used to get smoked outta their patios at the old Terra Cotta Inn because their neighbors smoked packs a day, every day, throughout the day and night.


A lot of the same amenities like the Ol' Terra Cotta Inn. Morning continental breakfast, afternoon strawberries (in season) and wine and snacks. Same type of policies on early check in, day use and the ability to stay the day til 5pm on check out day or day use.


The ol' Terra Cotta Inn had a large following and from what I'm hearing and reading, all those customers are eager to return from places they were forced to visit because of the Terra Cotta Inn closing. I don't doubt that the new Terra Cotta will do just as well as the ol TCI and that even though it's "clothing optional", 99% ,or better, are and will always be nude.
