Why this hotel: Best seller. Close to the gay bars. Great value.
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 nightlife 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 minibar, tea & coffee making facilities and satellite TV. We recommend the deluxe rooms or better as they have larger bathrooms. WiFi is available but chargeable.
