But um, wouldn't sliding down that waterslide kinda hurt?

It's not April Fool's Day, is it? OK, just checking. We've heard of hotels that encourage guest nudity, you see, but never have we seen them in Turkey. Which makes sense, since the Adaburnu Gölmar Hotel—opening on May 1st—bills itself as "the first naturist hotel in Turkey."

It makes a little more sense when you realize that the, um, service, was designed for foreign guests—god bless those British and German tourists who just can't keep their clothes on.

Rest assured, this is not a nudist retreat. Clothes are required inside the hotel, but guests will be able to be "free" at the pool bar and outdoor dining terrace between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. There is also a nudist beach for guest use a 20-minute drive away. (Don't drop your towel at the beach right in front of the hotel, in other words. It's a public, family-friendly beach!)

Luckily you won't have to drive your nude self over to the beach—the hotel will provide a free shuttle bus. Once there, guests will have access to sunbeds, umbrellas, showers, food and beverages. Oh, and goats. There are goats wandering about the place. (Hmm, is this a nude safety hazard?)

We hate to sound like prudes, but we're not sure about this concept just yet. We are, however, extremely curious about how it all pans out. So if you get nude at Adaburnu Gölmar, please make sure to come back and tell us all about it!

But, please, remember your bathing suit if you're going to hit the waterslide, hmmkay?
