I was invited to pursue pleasure at everyone’s favorite adult only resort, Hedonism II in Negril last weekend for their 34th anniversary celebrations themed “Mermaids Love Seamen.” It was my first time visiting Hedonism in years and I was blown away by the decor!!! All I kept thinking was, “man I really think I should go into interior design.” Just being in the Hedonism lobby made me feel so inspired and thirsty to see even more of what the resort had to offer. I was only there for a mere 5 hours or so, but within that small span of time I was treated to the ultimate entertainment experience, sinfully delicious food, the nicest staff ever and this all took place in the most fabulous setting ever.
Before I go into what I actually wore to the anniversary party I just need to tell you guys just how impressed I was. The hotel has done some jaw-dropping renovations and I mean it! This was more than just a fresh paint job, this was a freakin’ face lift that transformed the resort into a beautiful and much more functional space. It’s clear that interior designer Cecile Levee outdid herself with this project and thanks to her all I’ve been doing is questioning myself on whether I too want to head in the direction of interior design. Decisions, decisions…
The other thing that really caught my attention was the politeness of the staff. Yes a resort face lift is awesome but it means even more when the staff genuinely cares for you. From the young lady who gave me one of the best seats at dinner right through to senior management who consistently checked in to inquire about my time at the hotel. Impressed!!! That’s all I can say. Oh wait there’s more!!! I wouldn’t typically visit a hotel where people roam around topless or eat dinner in a ‘barely there’ outfit, but for those who have never experienced HEDO, take my word…naked people are far friendlier, happier and more approachable than just about anyone you will ever meet. Crazy I know but there is this openness about the resort that you can’t possibly find elsewhere. As I’ve said, IMPRESSED!
Right, my outfit. Probably why you came here in the first place (haha). So with a theme like ‘Mermaids love Seamen” I must admit, I was having an “I don’t know what the heck to wear dilemma’ because I wanted my look to depict colors from the sea like blue, green, purple & grey and also look sexy but not too sexy while being ‘vogue-ishly chic’ but not over-the-top. Sounds crazy but I hope you’re getting my gist. I just wanted to be able to have fun with my outfit since Hedonism is known as the place to let your hair down, let loose and be free. Well an hour before heading out I had an ah-ha moment and remembered my grey dress that I had sitting in the spring-summer section of my closet. Perfect! I found my outfit! SCORE!!!
I ended up going with a sassy, breezy dress to spice up what would be a hot, hot, hot and exciting night. If you’ve been one of my StylishLee homies for a while now then you may recognize this dress. DO YOU? DO YOU? DO YOU? HAHA! If you do well that’s because I have this exact same dress in white and wore it sometime earlier this year (click HERE to see how I wore this exact dress in white).
My grey dress features a flirty ruffle collar, a self-tie belted waist and a sexy deep V which was a classic and sophisticated way for me to show some skin. It’s a pretty fun and flirty dress that hits about mid-thigh and I paired it with hologram sandals for an understated sexy evening look. I used subtle hints of color to represent the colors of the sea, a blue and grey clutch from Asos and a purple lippie from Mac.
By the end of the night I realized that when Hedonism says they are an all-inclusive “Adult Only” hotel, they mean it! I say this because the hotel allows you to enjoy yourself to the absolute fullest where you can push the boundaries of human pleasure. After visiting the hotel I’m excited to go back and spend a weekend escape to this adult playground. I’ve I realized just how truly remarkable Hedonism really is. A hotel that is completely about self-indulgence. Where long lavish buffets are available all day long for guests to enjoy and indulge in as much as they like. Oh & the best part? Having the freedom to do whatever & whenever the hell you want. That includes dressing irresistibly sexy or not dressing at all just because you feel like. Talk soon loves, Natasha ♥
