Ubud Gay Guide

A guide to help you find the best hotels & places in Ubud for Gay travellers

Ubud Town is one of the most popular towns in Bali, particularly popular for its stunning surroundings while it is also known as the cultural capital of Bali. The gay acceptance in Ubud is at pretty high levels, similar to all the other regions of Bali, however, the local gay community is pretty small and inactive. This makes Ubud a perfect vacation spot for couples especially, because they don't need to meet other gays and can be gay together without having to hide anything. The best period to visit is either before or after the busy summer months of July and August, so that you can enjoy the beautiful warm weather without suffocating on the tons of other tourists that visit during those two months. If you are searching for a hotel in Ubud, you should check out our amazing Hotel Collections here!

You can also bike down Mount Batur, a volcano, and continue biking throughout the countryside. The Monkey Forest is a top attraction in Ubud, but some are afraid to walk up to the monkeys. Tirta Empul Water Temple is a temple with holy waters for religious individuals to bathe in. Tegenungan Waterfall is a smaller waterfall with stunning scenery and is close to the Hidden Canyon, a dangerous but interesting sight to see. The Balinese art and Neka Art Museum is a part of Ubud's artsy vibe, where you can buy or view artwork. Spas in Ubud are very popular and relaxing, and some recommendations for these include Sang Spa 2 and Cantika. The Museum Puri Lukisan is one of the best museums to visit for modern art. Pura Taman Saraswati is a cute temple dedicated to the Hindu goddess of wisdom, Dewi Saraswati, with beautiful carvings all over the building.
