What to bring/pack

Postby Bostoncouple3636 » Sun Dec 07, 2014 9:22 pm

Apologies if this is a silly question. Tried searching for the topic, with no luck. We are first timers heading to Pearl in January. What do we pack (for clothes...specifics would help as we've never been to a c/o resort or a hotel with themes before). We are more into the lifestyle than the nudist bit of the resort... If there's anything non-clothing related (or tips for first timers), would love to know those type of things as well.
Thanks in advance for your help!

  • Clothes: All you really need is whatever your theme night attire is, plus clothes for the plane and a couple coverups for breakfast/lunch. As a guy I usually bring a few shirts, 2 pairs of slacks, a couple pairs of shorts, 2 nice pairs of shoes and 2 pairs of flip flops. Miss SJ brings her theme night attire, shoes and a couple pool coverups. You don't need to plan for actual clothes to wear every day; as a dude you could wear one pair of slacks to dinner every night and nobody would notice. You only have them on for like 3 hours MAX :roll:
  • Sunscreen and condoms- they're expensive in the gift shop.

For guys, a few t shirts , sandals and shorts for the pool, collared shirts, closed toes shoes, and long pants for restaurant Pearl, and outfits for theme nights if you will. For lady, cover ups and sandals for pools, dress and heels for restaurant and theme nights, accessories. Accessories is important when there is minimal clothes. Lots of sun block, lotion, hats, changes for tips. No need to bring swimsuits, never put on. And smile.

Indy’s Packing Tips:
• Tie bright bandanas around luggage handles to find easier at airport
• Weekly activity schedule for Desire Pearl can be found at http://blog.desireresorts.com/weekly-ac ... ire-pearl/
• Pack all lotions and liquids in double bagged Ziploc bags. I once had sun-block open during travel and this method saved all my shoes
• Pack clothing in a bag separate from all liquids and lotions in case of leakage. I pack liquids/lotions/toiletries/shoes etc in one bag and clothing in another

One bit of advice that we got, that turned out to be a great idea, is a Large Turvis Tumbler with a top. That way they can make you drinks, and you have something with a lid on it and it keeps them cold. Also it is nice to have a large drink instead of the small little cups.

I brought way too much. One pair of pants and one shirt for each night would have been fine, plus one pair of shoes.

Ms. BeantownNewbs changed her dress every night (one night was pants and sheer top), probably 3-4 pairs of shoes, and lingerie for the lingerie theme night, but it turned out we didn't have time to go back to the room after dinner and before the show...so she never got to wear her lingerie, and her sheer top was lingerie-like and looked hot.

Otherwise, you don't even need a book: the hotel has an extensive library. The best thing I brought was a $50 bottle of 20 year old tawny port which we shared at the jacuzzi bar and was a big hit. Also bought a bottle of premium whiskey at duty free and that was popular too. ;)

One item we ALWAYS travel with is Cipro.
Get a script from your Dr and tell him/her you are traveling.
Saved our rears a couple of times when the bug hits you.
