The Secret Dungeon is absolutely what it says on the tin. The bespoke BDSM hotel boasts kink furniture and an assortment of toys, complete with a wardrobe full of costumes for visitors to explore new alter egos. True to its name, all of this is based in an actual dungeon, creating the perfect play space for couples to indulge their innermost fantasies. The B&B also comes with a four-poster bed, WiFi and Sky TV - but if you're visiting the Secret Dungeon for Eastenders followed by a restful kip, you've probably missed the point.
The self-proclaimed 'most rock 'n roll hotel in England' certainly gives itself a lot to live up to, but Hotel Pelirocco in Brighton manages to deliver. Far from being a sleepy seaside hotel, this punk-inspired palace has 19 rooms, each with a different theme, some of which certainly verge on the X-rated side. The Kraken's Lair Suite includes a mirror above the bed and a stripper pole, while the Ophelia Fancy Room dials up the raunch with a lingerie theme.
If you're looking for a stay that is as luxurious as it is intimate, then Blake's Hotel in London should be high on your list. This 5-star hotel is super stylish, with a basement bar and a fantastic restaurant. But that's not all you're here for. Go for one of the couples' packages, like the Blake's Sense package, which contains romantic treats from luxury lingerie brands to add an extra something special to an intimate evening.
An apartment with a difference, Better than a Bed really lives up to its name in that there's much more here than first meets the eye. The bedroom is full of dramatic red and black tones but, unusually, that's probably not the place where all the fun happens. That's because this place has its own sex dungeon! Located in central London, there's plenty of fun to be had nearby too... if you can bring yourselves to leave the apartment that is!
Naughty British Brand Box of Grey (BxG) have their own suite at the Sanctum Hotel in Soho, London. The suite has a toy cupboard, which has everything any kink hotel enthusiast could wish for. This does cost extra, but if you don't want to splash out, the suite does come with boxes full of all you need for erotic play. The room is classy and the theme more sensual, which makes the BxG suite at Sanctum a great choice for couples.
Are you planning your first naughty weekend away? Or are you just curious about what an erotic holiday is? Either way, here's our beginner's guide to sex holidays and hotels, with tips to ensure that hotel sex is the best ever!
Plan together: If you're going as a couple, it's important to remember that you're both fulfilling your fantasies together. Don't get carried away with doing all the planning just because you usually do so when it comes to your holidays.
Consider what to pack: Many kinky hotels have toys and props that can be used so make sure to check what you need to bring. However, it pays to be cautious, so if it comes down to small but essential things, like birth control, pack smart and bring some along just in case. Oh, and if you're bringing toys, don't forget to take out the batteries to avoid any embarrassing situations at the airport!
Research your destination: Always research the local culture and rules. In some countries it's actually illegal to own sex toys, so make sure that you know exactly what is and isn't allowed. This goes for the hotel or resort too. Are you looking for a hotel with a private room for fun? Or a resort for swingers revolving around having sex in public? Know what you're looking for and check that the destination matches your needs, such as whether it's good for couples or singles.
Experiment: Even if it's not your first experience, a sex holiday is something out of the norm for most. That means that it's a perfect opportunity to experiment and break routine. Indulge in the local flavours and culture to get the most out of the break.
If you are looking for a fetish-friendly BDSM experience, we highly recommend this hotel in Amsterdam.

Created with a passion for love and romance, Provocateur embodies sensual style. This boutique hotel offers guests a pleasure package containing condoms, massage oil and handcuffs for them to enjoy. Instead of the standard TV options, guests are also able to watch erotic movies in their room. The design of the rooms themselves is beautiful, with deep red and gold accents. Some rooms have bathtubs, while others have showers (but don’t worry, they can fit two!).
The Desire Pearl is a couples-only, all-inclusive resort that caters to those who enjoy partying on their travels. Doesn't sound so unusual, right? There's just one catch: in all areas, clothing is optional. While couples can enjoy baring all on the neighbouring beach or the spacious rooms, many will opt to jump straight in at the pool's swim-up bar or nightclub, complete with swings, stripper poles and a 'Sin Room'. Hey, at least you don't need to worry about finding something to wear...
What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas, and you can always rely on the gambling capital to take things to the next level. The three-tower Palm Casino Resort is known for its lavish parties and celebrity hangouts, but it also includes some blush-inducingly adult luxury suites. One such room is the plush Erotic Suite, which features a shower with a pole dancing pole, rotating bed and mirrored ceilings. It's not a low-key affair, but what else would you expect from Sin City itself?
A funky hotel spangled with phallic and nude imagery, the Hotel Amour is all about love-themed decor. There's no television, of course, but that would only be a distraction in a hotel created purely for celebrating love. It is located in the Pigalle quarter, famed for its sex shops and adult theatres, with the famous Moulin Rouge just a ten-minute walk away. So if you weren't already convinced about visiting, there's only one question to ask: voulez-vous coucher avec moi ce soir?
As the name suggests, this is a place for hedonists to seek out their pleasures. Another clothing-optional spot, this hotel organises themed parties so that guests can don sexy outfits. Couples and singles can also enter the playroom, if they feel so inclined, and unleash their deepest fantasies. At this hotel, public sex is just another part of everyday life, and they provide their patrons with plenty of condoms.
