Strictly for gay men, the clothing optional Spartacvs Bali Hotel is a 5-minute walk to Petitenget Beach. Featuring an outdoor pool surrounded by tropical landscaped gardens, it offers private rooms with free Wi-Fi.

The modern and air-conditioned rooms have a satellite TV, safe and minibar. A private bathroom includes a shower and toilet. Select rooms offer a flat-screen TV.

There are only about 15 rooms, which makes the hotel small enough to be personal, yet big enough for privacy if you just want to lie around the pool without being disturbed. The clothing optional thing really is optional, some do, some don’t and there is no pressure or embarrassment either way. This is also a male-only hotel (guests and staff), so there is no worry about hiding while the cleaner passes!

The place is in close proximity to the gay beach which is handy and a short walk to the shops and big hotels. Short walk to the beach, main road of Seminyak and to great restaurants.

The rooms are comfortable and colourful, without being 5 star glamorous.

The venue allows for total privacy and rest if you prefer that and also the opportunity to talk with other guests, if that is more your style

The garden rooms are favourites, so they need to be booked well in advance. Each staff member is welcoming in true Balinese style, with a sense of humour and client focus.

The food is outstanding from the complimentary breakfast to our evening dining and the cocktails were very refreshing.

The free breakfast is acceptable, and the lunch-dinner menu is varied with choices for Western and Balinese tastes.

The pool area is great for socialising and to chill, they play gay anthems/classics in the background at times (as well as modern music) which is fun and the best part is that the pool is open 24/7 so cooling down after a night of partying was always welcomed.

5. The Kayon Resort Bali – Lgbt Friendly Bali Hotels

The Kayon Resort
The Kayon Resort

Our last suggest for a gay friendly resort in Bali is a 4* resort: The Kayon Resort.

Set amidst a garden featuring a chapel and pool, The Kayon Resort features elegant rooms and villas with views over historical Petanu River and jungle. The resort offers complimentary hourly shuttle to and from central Ubud.
Luxurious air conditioned rooms boast a scenic terrace, private entrance and a seating area. Fitted with flat-screen satellite TV, CD/DVD player and a laptop safe. It also includes a mosquito net, wardrobe and sofa. The room is fitted with a minibar and electric kettle. The spacious marble bathroom comes with a shower, bathtub and hairdryer. Free WiFi access is available throughout the property.

If you want to stay in Ubud but be close to town, yet in the jungle (like Hanging Gardens) this is the place.

The river view suite which includes great views over the river which surrounds the hotel. Their amenities are also well thought out, in particular, the tote and insect repellent which was all-natural.

The bathroom is attractive with a good shower and a huge stone bath. So huge that it proved impossible to fill it more than a few inches deep, which was not ideal.

The room has a safety deposit box, a good sized bed with mosquito nets (we only saw one or two mossies and we were not bitten), a TV which we never used and a bowl of fruit. In line with prices on Bali the min bar was affordable (£3 for a can of Bintang beer).

The wifi was free and worked well, except for one day when we had to ask for the router to be re-booted.

For the complimentary breakfast, you also have a few options to choose from, Indonesia style, continental breakfast, etc. The food is nicely cooked and beautifully presented. It is much better than the buffet breakfast at a 5 star hotel. Location wise, it is outside Ubud center, no shops or restaurants around (you need to take the free shuttle bus to the town center); and this will enrich your experience & probably the exact reason why you come to Ubud – to enjoy a peaceful mind.

Their free yoga sessions in the morning are a good way to start the day, but note that they are very beginner-level.
