There has been discussion on the renovation of the courtyard and what is being done. For all of you that love the resort and want to leave a legacy (and help raise money for future renovations), they are selling bricks, or pavers) that will go on the walkway from the dining room to the Piano Bar. Here is the info that I received....

Hedonism II is happy to announce that they are now, as of August 12th, officially selling bricks online at the new Hedo Community. This is your opportunity to have an engraved brick as part of the walkway from dining to the piano bar. Smaller bricks can have up to three lines of characters and any clipart logo that is made available by anyone who does a larger logo brick (like groups). Bricks can be moved once (when you get to Hedo if you want yours relocated) at no charge. Painted rocks wear off - but these bricks are designed for a lifetime - so leave a legacy of your love for Hedo and help them raise money for more improvements to the resort....buy a brick today! Go to the community store to purchase and someone will contact you for your brick details!

FYI, the bricks are being engraved in the US by the same company that did all the bricks at EPCOT at Walt Disney World.

Kinda cool, we did the brick thing years ago when they built the new cardinals base ball field in St. Louis ... My husband is a die hard fan and loves the idea of his brick being there.

If you are going to think that, then The Walt Disney Company became one many years ago!

Maybe not a charity but almost certainly, at this time, a non profit. A lot of charity work does occur at Hedo.

LOL, in Pennsylvania businesses and individuals can pay to "sponsor" a stretch of roadway and have a LITTLE sign posted with you or your company's name on it identifying you as the "sponsor". The real benefit (sic) to sponsorship is YOU GET TO KEEP THE ROADWAY YOU SPONSORED ... CLEAN!! Yep, pick up all the trash and liter!! Top that bargain LOL ... and MANY do it.

Does this mean our trips are tax deductible?

Do you get to Lay your own bricks, or is that a pun too far? crazy

Just think, Harry spent $40M USD to get his name on something at Hedo. You only have to spend $295 USD to get your name on something.

My wife wrote our names in some wet cement with a straw ( along with about 50 others that day) where the nude rooms walkway enters the nude pool area. That was back in '95 and it was still there when we looked for it last year. No charge for that, but I am sure it will be gone one day soon ... If not gone already.

I would consider the brick thing as a gift perhaps to a Hedo friend. It's not a bad idea and it's optional so no harm and they might be a nice thing for some folks. I hope they don't hold back bricking the place while they wait to sell enough bricks. smile
I just hope that years from now the people who buy them get the option of taking them if they ever tear them back up. My wife and are among many whose painted Rock seems to have disappeared. We know one couple who paid a fortune ( they say) to get a tree carving done and came back to find the whole tree gone. Bricks are more permanent.

According to the new Hedonism website; if you purchase a brick (through their online store) you have a one time opportunity to have that brick moved. We thought our 2008 carving on a tree trunk by the entrance to the nude pool was gone forever too. However a friend of ours told us it had been relocated to the bamboo grove with the picnic table (just off the path to 'naked world' as my husband calls it).

Interesting. I'd be more pleased if some local artisan would do the etching. Perhaps a nice idea as a gift, though I'd personally pass.

Ya, and then you need to worry about people bringing their own Chinese knock-off bricks.
Then the Resort counters with an upgraded brick complete with neon lights and a built in display (repeating the video clip of your choice).
The Hedo courtyard could get weird... shocked

Our yacht club did this (wasn't anywhere near HEDO's price) but they also gave you a miniature brick, same size only about a 1/2 inch thick, to take home.

I'm all in favor of Hedo raising money these new ways: personalized bricks, premium wines, select upgraded rooms. They get to increase their revenues, and none of it has to come from ME.

If you were a lifetime member of the Hedonism Community and bought a brick for $295, you would get 29,500 Bonus Points in your account which is more than enough to get you a $250 voucher so in essence, that brick now cost you $45.

I would think about it doing it as a group or with friends to keep the cost down (yes I'm cheap, otherwise I wouldn't be able to go to Hedo 2xs a year). However, how do we find out if the money is actually donated? I'm skeptical about that. I'm sure the investors/owners would get a tax credit, but how much actually goes to the charity? Just like any charity there are costs and they receive very little.

It isn't going to charity, it is going to fund future renovations. Probably a new coat of paint on the climbing turd.

I was lucky enough to get my own tree many years ago based on number of visits.

A gratitude to the greensman was suggested, which I gladly did.

Perhaps a discount on the bricks based on number of visits would be appropriate?

Kind of like an offshoot of the repeat guest party contest.

Yes, but that would defeat the fundraising aspect of the endeavor. Presumably, the more times you've visited, the more willing you are to help out with a contribution. Or so they probably think.
