As in many big Asian capitals, there is a vibrant gay scene in Bali. Although the local Balinese gays will be in the closet in their village, in thriving and cosmopolitan Kuta, in particular Seminyak, they are all very open, easy going, and cruisy. Young gays from all over Indonesia come and settle down in Kuta to live a normal gay life. Gay life is tolerated all over Bali and it becomes very visible and obvious in Kuta and Seminyak.
The place to hang out during the day is the "gay beach" or Petitenget beach, on the northern end of Kuta beach, conveniently located close to many of the gay and gay-friendly villa accommodations. Once a discreet nude gay beach, nudity is no longer authorized, but it has remained as gay as ever and the bushes behind the beach can be cruisy. There is a large open-air bar and restaurant, there are lounge chairs for rent and there is even a massage parlour on the premises. The action is in the late afternoons, although on weekends many local families come down to that beach.
There are five gay bars on Dhyana Pura street, the Mixwell, Bali Joe, Chaps, Bottoms Up, and Club Cosmo , all located close to each other. All are very crowded and overcrowded on the weekends, when the customers spill over onto the road. There are daily shows and they stay open until early in the morning.
The Glass House (" Rumah Kaca ") is an ultra avant-garde architectural creation in Bali as the two storey party villa has only one side wall, while all the other walls are entirely made of glass windows. Its architectural conception creates an atmosphere of secluded calm, luxury, and simplicity with an abundance of space and natural light, ideal for relaxation and partying in absolute privacy, with the highest standards of service. Located in Khao Khad, it is a short distance to Cape Panwa, which is one the island’s most exclusive areas. This region is situated on Phuket’s southeast coast, providing a tranquil retreat with nearby peaceful and unspoiled beaches. Phuket Central is only a 10-15 minute drive away, where you will find shopping centers such as Tesco Lotus, Central Festival, and Big C, a multiplex cinema, gym, and other amenities.
The Glass House is adjacent to "Bali au Naturel", the exclusive clothing-optional beach resort and guests residing in the Glass House have unlimited direct access to Bali au Naturel and its two swimming pools, whirlpool, gardens, its deserted black sand beach, restaurant and more. The Glass House is totally private and located in a 2500 sq. mtr garden, surrounded by a wall and abundant tropical vegetation, trees, and bamboo. Its seclusion allows for a total see-through villa, with two open air showers and large bathtub on the first floor. It has its own large private swimming pool and two sun decks, an ideal place to take your meals, with open-air shower (coming out of a tree). The whole villa is fully air-conditioned and there are many ceiling-fans as well.
The ground floor consists of a large living area (all windows can be opened to allow a cool sea-breeze inside the house), a fully equiped state-of-the-art kitchen with the highest Western standards (with micro-wave, freezer/fridge, ice-maker, all utensils), a large art gallery which contains art objects from all over the world (the owners' private collection), a library containing hundreds of books, magazines, novels, and coffee-table books on a wide range of topics in several languages (English, French, Dutch, Indonesian). There is a large flat screen TV and fully equipped home theater, with a very large collection of DVDs, movies and music. A fish pond starts inside the living room and goes all around the villa. A small bathroom and superb lighting completes the ground floor.
The first floor has a large walk-in garde-robe. The bedroom has a king size bed, small library, coffee and tea making facilities, a mini-bar, and another large flat screen TV with home-theater. Plus a bathroom and a completely open-air shower and bath-tub, its view protected by trees only. A 60 sq. mtr. sundeck with a gazebo next to the bedroom is a continuation of the bathroom/shower. An extra sexy touch is a king size mirror on the ceiling, right above the bed for some unforgettable intimate erotic sessions with your loved one.
