Exclusively gay guesthouse Phil’s Place offers ’boutique hotel styled’ accommodation. We’ve been there and loved the contemporary design, luxury furnishings and super comfortable beds.

Phil’s Place is located on a quiet street, about a 10-minute walk from Seminyak’s gay bars. The ground floor has a beautiful open-air lounge & bar that surrounds the pool. There is a garden at the rear with sun loungers and a 24-hour café service.

Each of the 5 bedrooms features a comfortable king-sized bed, air conditioning, cable TV and free WiFi. Three of the rooms are en suite. Friendly houseboys will assist with everything you need.

  1. FIRST TRIP TO BALI! GLAD I SELECTED THIS VILLA

    “Bottom line -- This is a nice villa catering to the gay community. The staff are very friendly and speak adequate English. I selected the premier room upstairs and am glad I did. The room is large and the balcony had a great sitting area for reading or just hanging out.

    I appreciated the homemade breakfasts each morning as you can select from several options. Try the fried rice and egg -- my favorite. The room had a mini refrig so you can keep water and yogurt -- there are plenty of small stores nearby for some quick goodies. My favorite restaurant was the Dusty Café -- great salads and sandwiches.

    I also arranged airport transportation. This was a very nice father and son operation and I used them for a couple of excursions around Bali. Again, it was very reasonable and the drivers had enough English so we could communicate effectively.

    If you want to grab a workout while there, there are a couple of options. Hammerhead is the larger of the two but I preferred the smaller one which is walking distance from the villa. I also arranged for a massage through the hotel and the masseur was strong and delivered a very good massage again at a very reasonable rate.

    My only concern was the location. The villa is located off a road without a sidewalk so you needed to be careful at all times but especially at night. The traffic was even more intense at the intersections but if you travel in Asia often - this should be no surprise.

    The other guests were friendly. Several from France and one gentleman from Malaysia. We had time to talk each morning over breakfast which I enjoyed.

    Since I had been staying at larger mainstream hotels over my travels this trip, I was very thankful to stay in this smaller specialized villa. I did not go out to any of the bars but they were walking distance. There is a small massage place around the corner from the villa.

    I am always happy to support gay friendly businesses and would stay here again if I return to Semiyak.“

  2. Awesome place

    “We discovered Phil's Place in June 2013. After travelling in Sumatra and Java this was a relieve. We could relax for another 8 days at Phil's. It is not only the luxury of the villa, it is the friendly welcoming staff that makes this place very special. Gay bars are close by, the beaches also. And when you need, you can have lovely massages every day, he he. In August this year we will return to this relaxing atmosphere for another 9 days, when we finish our journey through Sulawesi. Looking forward to it.“

  3. Great home away from home!

    “I stayed here 3 nights last week (Nov 2014) and 5 in Aoril of 2012. It's a beautiful place, nice staff and with a 5-10 min walk to the gay bars. Excellent choice! I will be back.“
