Wow. Netflix's reality dating series Too Hot to Handle is everything you need to watch during your summer evenings indoors. The show centers around 10 singles living in a house together. But there's a catch: If they want to win the $100,000 grand prize, they'll have to forego being intimate.
Or, as the streaming platform teases, "You can look but you can't touch."
Put another way, these 10 individuals get to enjoy a desert island retreat paradise together. Except for all kinds of sexual activity is strictly forbidden, and that includes kissing, touching, and masturbation.
And if anyone happens to break the rules, the prize fund is gradually reduced. So, where exactly is this gorgeous villa the 10 singles get to let loose in? Here's what to know about Season 4 filming locations.
Where is 'Too Hot to Handle' filmed?
Too Hot to Handle Season 1 debuted in April 2020. The series was one of Netflix’s acclaimed reality TV series on the platform, as it became a binge-worthy show during the height of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Season 1 of Too Hot to Handle was filmed in Punta Mita, Mexico, on a beautiful property where viewers can also stay.
"The most incredible destination in the world, with the most amazing views, where serenity meets destiny," a description of the dreamy property reads on Casa Tau's Instagram page. "This is what Casa Tau represents, a very exclusive way of looking at the world, with a full-service resort staff at your service every moment."
The destination boasted 12 bedrooms and bathrooms, including three ocean-front master suites and one double room. In total, the estate sleeps 27 people — in other words, more than enough room for the 10 Too Hot to Handle cast members to spread out, plus their whole crew.
After Season 1, Too Hot to Handle returned with a new cast of hotties and a brand-new filming location. According to Variety, the second and third seasons, released in June 2021 and January 2022, were filmed secretly during the pandemic. COVID-19 safety protocols were in effect, but it's also filmed in secret, so the contestants don't know what show they're actually on until the big reveal. The producers called the secret show Parties in Paradise throughout the casting process so the contestants wouldn't suspect anything.
For the back-to-back seasons, the cast filmed Too Hot to Handle on Turks and Caicos island of Providenciales. While there, they stayed at the Turtle Tail estate. According to Marie Claire, the villa isn’t exclusive to the reality stars.
The outlet reported in 2021 that anyone can rent a room at the resort for a hefty price of $10,000 a night. Unfortunately, the Turtle Tail permanently closed in 2021, so fans will miss out on seeing the location in Season 4.
Where was 'Too Hot to Handle' Season 4 filmed?
Although there wasn’t much of a gap between Seasons 2 and 3 of Too Hot to Handle, Netflix waited a little longer to confirm if the series would return for Season 4. After a few excruciating weeks, the streamer finally announced via Instagram in February 2022 that there would be a new season.
"Ten super hot and horny singletons enter a lavish villa in the Caribbean hoping to fall in love harder, faster, and more intensely than ever in a high stakes dating show called Wild Love hosted by TV legend Mario Lopez. Little do they know that Too Hot to Handle is back and Lana is as watchful as ever," the show's Season 4 bio reads.
So, will the Caribbean sun be too hot for these 10 singles to handle?
Where is 'Too Hot to Handle: Brazil' filmed?
