Why this hotel: Best seller. Close to the gay bars. Great value.
The good-value, very gay-friendly Pelangi Bali has a great beachfront location, within walking distance of the gay nightlife on Jalan Camplung Tanduk street. It is also near Putra at Pantai 66, a strip of beach that has become popular with gay sunbathers. The main gay beach area at Batu Belig can be reached by taxi in 10 minutes.
The hotel has a large swimming pool with a ‘swim up’ bar, a sun terrace and plenty of sun loungers. The spacious, 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.
