Asia’s Top Gay Hotels & Resorts – 2016

For the 3rd consecutive year, we've sorted through thousands of hotel bookings made on Travel Gay Asia to compile our best-selling hotels in 2016.
Our 'Top 100' list includes the following hotels that are dedicated to serving the gay market.


Pattaya, Thailand

Home to Thailand’s largest concentration of gay hotels and resorts. Most are located close to the Jomiten gay beach and bars or the BoyzTown gay nightlife. So, it’s probably no big surprise that Pattaya is home to six of our most popular hotels.

Ganymede is a consistently popular choice and one of the top 25 most-booked hotels on Travel Gay Asia (gay or straight) two years in a row.
