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?: Luxury choice. Walk to the beach & gay bars.

The nearest luxury hotel to the Seminyak gay scene. The Courtyard by Marriott Bali is just a short walk from the beach and the main gay bars. Free shuttle service to Seminyak Beach is provided.

The resort has all the 5-star facilities including a nice outdoor pool, a spa and a gym. There is a restaurant, 24-hour front desk, tour desk and room service.

Each tastefully decorated guest room has free WiFi, flat screen cable TV, iPod dock, safe, minibar and private balcony overlooking the garden.

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

Most seasoned gay travelers 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 & clubs in Seminyak can be reached by taxi in 15-30 minutes, depending on traffic.

The Elysian offers some of the best resort-based private villas in Seminyak. Each of the 14 villas has an 8-metre pool, state-of-the-art entertainment system with Apple TV, iPod and BOSE sound dock.

The beach is just moments from your villa, or you can relax in one of the cabanas by the main pool. The hotel offers a choice of great 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.

Jimbaran & Nusa Dua

Jimbaran bay, located to the south of the airport, is famous for its white sandy beach, and, unlike the west coast, the area is safe for swimming* and has an excellent choice of hotels, restaurants and boutique shops.

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

Why this hotel?: Ocean views. Beachfront location in Nusa Dua.

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. There’s a Club Lounge for breakfast, cocktails, high tea, all-day drinks and a private pool. Children under 12 are not permitted.

This gay-friendly resort is located 20 km from the Seminyak gay scene, about 45 minutes by taxi.

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 facilities and the amazing hilltop ‘Rock Bar’.

The resort has 4 swimming pools. Our favorite 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. Fabulous pool.

The breathtakingly beautiful Maya Resort is tucked away in tropical gardens, surrounded by rice paddies and Petanu River. With an inspiring design, 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 favorite 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 service.
