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.

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. 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.
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 near the gay-popular Batu Belig Beach. Gay bars and clubs in Seminyak can be reached by taxi in 15-30 minutes, depending on traffic.

Exquisite beachside resort, set in 15 acres of beautiful tropical gardens on Seminyak Beach. The Oberoi offers private pool villas in traditional Balinese style, with thatched roof, satellite TV, iPod dock, bathtub and free WiFi.
The Oberoi Spa offers a variety of massage treatments in open-air pavilions. The resort also has a gym and an outdoor pool that overlooks the ocean.
Well-located for the gay scene, The Oberoi is just 500 metres from the gay-popular KU DE TA restaurant and Seminyak Square Shopping Mall.
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.

Why this hotel? Ocean views. Beachfront location. Gay-friendly. Free WiFi.
Great-value 5-star resort with a private sandy beach, the Hilton Bali 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.

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.
A remarkable district in the central part of the island, located about 30 km from Seminyak. Ubud is surrounded by rice paddies, forests and rivers and is famous for arts & crafts and peaceful scenery.

Why this hotel? Incredible views. Lush surroundings. Great facilities. Free WiFi.
The breathtakingly beautiful Maya Resort is tucked away in tropical gardens, surrounded by rice paddies and Petanu River. With an inspiring design concept, the resort perfectly blends modern architecture with natural landscapes to a maximum effect.
Large suites & villas have their own private terrace/balcony. The resort can arrange for nature walks and tours and offers yoga/Pilates classes, though our favourite pastime is relaxing by the gorgeous infinity-edge pool with its amazing views.
The Maya Ubud is about 10-15 minutes’ walk to town, but there is a free shuttle that runs from 8am-5pm.
