Bali’s famous beach town. Seminyak is home to many resorts, restaurants, shops and gay bars 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 speakers, 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 is near the Batu Belig Beach. Gay bars and clubs in Seminyak can be reached by taxi in 15-30 minutes, depending on traffic.
