N Resort
Jamaica's New Naturist Resort

Oyster Bay, Jamaica

The N Resort at Oyster Bay, Jamaica is primarily a nudist resort for adults only. The resort welcomes guests as couples and single ladies only. Nudity is not compulsory so you may describe it as clothing optional.

The resort is not fancy… it’s modest in design but does include all the features of a larger, all inclusive property, surprising for a small resort.

Frank Rance, the owner and Freddie DePass, General Manager of N Resort, both emphasize their resort is not Hedonism… it’s suited for small groups and fun loving adults who enjoy tropical ambiance in a clothes-free environment.

The new owner of the N Resort is Mr. Ernie Smatt who also owns Shaw Park Beach hotel (in Ocho Rios). The parent company is called Attraction 2000. No information was provided whether the property will offer clothing optional facilities. Stay tuned to this space for more information..

  The N Resort at Oyster Bay, Jamaica is primarily a nudist resort for adults and is all inclusive in format. This means room, meals, bar drinks, taxes and airport transfers are included in your room rate. The resort welcomes guests as couples and single ladies only. The property at one time was called Pebbles. After a refurbishment, the resort's opening day of November 19, 2010 ushers in an era for the resort catering primarily to adult nudists although clothing optional clients are welcome as well. The dining areas and reception are the two locations on the property where clothing or a cover up is required.

Compared to most resorts on the island, it's a bit smaller than most resort layouts with only 96 rooms, most of them Ocean view.

In addition, its compact area on about 3 acres literally hugs the beach composed of beautiful white sand that serves as a perfect entrance to the beach water. You don’t need aqua shoes to enjoy swimming at the beach. And, snorkeling is a step away from the beach with sand bars and reefs accessible from the shore.

What sets the resort apart from other small hotels is the construction. All guest rooms are built with native Jamaican wood with authentic decorations and appointments including a nice porch for that early morning coffee or late afternoon drink as you watch the sunset.

The resort used to be called, Pebbles, a family resort, and was built in the mid 90s.

N-Resort All Inclusive for adults has earned a 2013 Certificate of Excellence from Trip Advisor

  Passports are required for international air travel, including Jamaica.

Fly into Montego Bay's Sangster Airport, hop on a shuttle bus and you'll be at the resort, usually taking between 30-40, depending upon traffic. Your trip is a scenic drive along the coast road to Runaway Bay and Ocho Rios, although you won't travel that far.

Air service is provided by both scheduled air carriers and charter airlines worldwide to Montego Bay. Typically, charters are a good value, but the flights usually operate once or twice a week from the USA and Europe. If you want convenience, scheduled airlines offer the most flights, most often, to the island. The trade off for you is price vs. convenience. The choice is yours.

Reserve your spot at Club MoBay, an upscale traveler's lounge in the newest section of the Montego Bay Airport. The Club provides expedited arrival, customs/immigration and departure services in addition to the Club admission, all inclusive, with drinks, bar service and snacks, WiFi, satellite TV provided.

There is no commuter airport nearby, so a short bus ride is your primary option, included automatically in your resort accommodations' package. The bus may stop for a passengers' beer or pee break, depending upon the whim of the bus driver or guests. The coastal road eastward from Montego Bay takes you through the areas of Falmouth and Trelawny where you may pass roadside stands selling sea grapes, excellent wood carvings and, of course, Red Strip beer and jerk chicken, the island's specialty.

A little useless trivia: A movie classic filmed years ago called "Papillon" about a Devils' Island (French penal colony) starring Steve McQueen and Dustin Hoffman was filmed in the old warehouse complex in Falmouth, which also boasts the second oldest church on the island. Nearby Duncans is the boyhood home of Harry Belafonte, a Jamaican calypso singer popular in the 50s and 60s in Jamaica and the USA before reggae became established in the 1970's. In addition, several James Bond classic movies were filmed near there, including Goldfinger.

Some more interesting recent trivia: The 2008 Olympic world record holder for the 100 yard dash, Usain Bolt, was born and raised near Trelawny, not far from the N Resort.

The resort is just east of Breezes Trelawny family resort and not far from the new seaport at Trelawny where Royal Caribbean docks its cruise liners on the north shore of Jamaica.

  Adult couples and single adult women are welcome as guests at the resort.

Frank Rance, the owner and Freddie DePass, General Manager of N Resort, both emphasize their resort is not Hedonism. It’s suited for small groups and fun loving adults who enjoy tropical ambiance.

A bit if interesting trivia: Frank Rance was the first General Manager of Negril Beach Village back in the late 70’s. Freddie was his first assistant manager of the resort which later converted to... Hedonism # 2 in the early 80’s when SuperClubs assumed control and management of the property in Negril.

  N Resort has an comfortable island feel to it with overgrowing flowering walks throughout the property dotted in and around the palm trees for that lazy island feel, just right for a snooze on the beach.

Activities for the more energetic clients include tennis, kayak, snorkeling and swimming plus cycling as well as volleyball-both the beach kind and the swimming pool kind.

Nightly, a disco rocks & rolls, plus live entertainment and karaoke rounds out the week. For a more relaxed venue, you can try your hand at board games, Scrabble to chess and dominoes.

The pool includes a separate conversation area, cabanas and the swim up bar is open all day of course as well as the Jacuzzi which is active day and night.

A "must do" in any island destination is enjoy a beachside massage as you hear the waves gently lapping up on the beach. Not to be missed. Spa service and massages are extra.

Special features are planned for a Caribbean floor show during the week.

A shopping trip to Montego Bay is also included in your room rates, too, but gals, your shopping purchases are your own!

Since the resort is so compact, the pool area is a great place to enjoy the beach café, jerk center and beach view lounge on the second story above the beach grill. Strategically placed near the beach & pool bare on either side of the pool are two hot tubs, overlooking both the ocean and the pool…..what a great place to hang out to follow the fun in the pool as well as to take in the spectacular sunsets.

A wonderful little wooden pier in front of the resort serves as a perfect spot for fishing and enjoying sunsets in the evening, of course, with a cool drink in your hand and your honey by your side.

The hotel also features a couple of unique, fun sports: Fishing off the pier and helping haul the catch from net fishing right at the beach.

* Guests can bring their own wine if the choose to do so.
* Jamaica’s annual jazz festival with world-class entertainers held in January each year is virtually across the road from the resort.

* Bring your own movies to share your entertainment with other guests.

Golfers can scratch their itch at a number of courses located in the Montego Bay area, including Ironshore, White Witch and Rose Hall.

Compact and intimate compared to larger resorts
A really laid back resort with fairly low occupancy -10, 20+ couples at a time unless a nudist group shows up
Convenient to Montego Bay and the airport (about 30-35 minutes by car)
  Built in the early 1990's, the resort is clean but could use an upgrade of many common facilities
  Maintenance on a steady basis is needed to keep everything running. Sometimes, the phones don't work and Jacuzzi or hot tub may not be operational
  Staff members are anxious to please and service is usually prompt
  Existing facilities are for the most part, clean as are the guest rooms
  Entertainment and Activities level vary with occupancy
    Nice pool and roomy pool deck
  Guest rooms are only air conditioned area
  We found the dining better than average
  Guest rooms are probably 50% larger than most comparable 3 star Jamaican resorts
  The day bed out on the porch is a favorite with most guests for a nap in the afternoon

  Jamaica is a year-round travel destination with the fall season seeing weather that can be less stable than other times of the year. Since you're in the tropics, expect a downpour at some time while you're there, although it's rare for rains to last days on end. The weather usually blows in and blows out pretty quickly.
