Looking for a resort in a great location for the beach and gay scene?
A factor to consider is how close you want to be to the gay bars and beach in Seminyak. Taxis are cheap, but the roads congested. If you plan hit the gay bars most nights, then it makes sense to stay in or close to Seminyak.
Our 2013 recommendations are sorted by area:
Kuta & Legian – popular areas south of Seminyak.
Seminyak, Petitenget and Batubelig beaches extend as far as the eye can see. As the sun sets, internationally renowned beach front bars such as Ku De Ta and Potato Head serve fabulous cocktails with cool tunes. Later, the gay bars along Jl. Camplung Tanduk get going and stay open way into the night.
Close to the gay bars.

The good value for money, very gay-friendly Pelangi has a great beach front location, offers spacious comfortable rooms, and is within walking distance of the gay night-life on Jl. Camplung Tanduk street. The Pelangi is also close to Putra at Pantai 66, a strip of beach that has become increasingly popular with gay sunbathers. Alternatively, the main gay beach area at Batu Belig can be reached by taxi in about 10 minutes.
The hotel has a large swimming pool with a ‘swim up’ bar, a sun terrace and plenty of sun loungers. The comfortable guest rooms feature a mini-bar, tea & coffee making facilities and satellite TV. We recommend the deluxe rooms or better as they have larger bathrooms. WiFi is available but chargeable.
