Seminyak

Bali’s famous beach town. Seminyak is home to many resorts, restaurants, shops and gay nightlife on Dhyana Pura street. There’s a long, sandy beach, but swimming here is not advised. Hotels have made up for this with fabulous swimming pools.

At the northern end of Seminyak, just beyond the W Hotel, is Batu Belig Beach, which has been adopted by the gay community as their beach of choice.

8.7 Very Good - based on 267 Agoda reviews

Why this hotel? Close to gay nightlife. All suites. Excellent gym & bar. Free WiFi.

The all-suite Anantara offers contemporary Balinese-styled rooms with panoramic ocean views. Each suite features a signature terrazzo tub, satellite TV, iPod dock, espresso coffee machine, outdoor loungers and free WiFi.

8.5 Very Good - based on 90 Agoda reviews

Why this hotel? Private pool villas. Great location. Popular choice. Free WiFi.

The beach is just moments from your villa, or you could relax in one of the cabanas by the main pool. The hotel offers a choice of excellent restaurants (including 24-hour in-villa dining), or you can try one of the many local restaurants.

The gay-popular KU DE TA is just a few minutes’ walk away, and the gay bars are a bit further. Expect great service and the warmest of welcomes.

Jalan Petitenget, Seminyak, Bali | map | distance

8.9 Very Good - based on 611 Agoda reviews

Why this hotel? Iconic hotel. Fantastic facilities. Near the gay beach. Free WiFi.

Most seasoned gay travellers understand the W concept.  Cool, iconic and innovative.  It’s more like checking into a Hollywood film set than a hotel. The W Bali does not stray far from these themes -think illuminated door knobs, BOSE sound systems, LED-lit bedside tables.

The “Talent” (staff) are all graduates of W smile school and generally live up to the brand’s reputation of doing everything legally possible to make their guests happy. The food is worth a special note – especially the Fire restaurant which serves some pretty fantastic steaks.

We like the ‘Ocean View’ rooms in the main building as they have stunning beach views and are a lot closer to the main pool area than the private villas.

The W Bali is perfectly positioned, just a few minutes’ walk from the gay-popular Batu Belig Beach. Gay bars and clubs in Seminyak can be reached by taxi in 15-30 minutes, depending on traffic.

One of the most famous and popular hotels in Bali. The Legian occupies a prime location right on the beachfront, just a few minutes by taxi from the gay bar scene. KU DE TA restaurant is a 5-minute walk away.

Jimbaran & Nusa Dua

Located to the south of the airport, Jimbaran bay is renowned for its white sandy beach and, unlike the west coast, the area is safe for swimming*.  There is an excellent range of luxury hotels, restaurants and a few boutique shops.

Nusa Dua, on the eastern side of the Bukit Peninsula, is about 25 minutes’ drive from the airport.  It is home to some of the best beaches in Bali, with safe swimming conditions – always check conditions locally. A taxi to the gay nightlife in Seminyak takes at least 45 minutes and costs around 200,000 IDR (approx. $20).

Why this hotel? Ocean views. Beachfront location. Gay-friendly. Free WiFi.

Great-value 5-star resort with a private sandy beach, the Grand Nikko is a great choice if you don’t plan to spend every night out to the bars in Seminyak.

We like the Club Rooms that have beautiful views of the Indian Ocean. The hotel has a Club Lounge for breakfast, cocktails, high tea, all-day refreshments, and a private pool. Children under 12 are not permitted in the Club.

This resort has earned its gay-friendly credentials by hosting the 2012 G Tennis Tournament. 20 km / approx. 45 by taxi ($10+) from the Seminyak gay nightlife.

8.8 Very Good - based on 1836 Agoda reviews

Why this hotel? Hilltop location Private beach. Fabulous pool & dining.

The romantic, award-winning AYANA Resort is set at the top of a limestone cliff on Bali’s southwest-facing coast. It has a wonderful private white sandy beach, exceptional hotel facilities and the amazing hilltop ‘Rock Bar’.

The resort has 4 swimming pools. Our favourite is the stunning “Ocean Beach” pool that is built into the cliff and has panoramic Indian ocean views.

If you fancy a night out, then the gay bars in Seminyak are about 45 minutes away by car. This is a popular resort, so the best time to visit is outside of the traditional family holiday seasons.
