Tropical Christmas & New Year.

20th December 2018 – 3rd January 2019 (15 nights)

Swap Christmas wrapping and family obligations for tropical heat, paddy field sunsets and the company of a wonderful group of Gay men.


After an amazing trip to Bali in February 2018 The Great Gay Getaway returns for a Yuletide Special.

£885   Twin / Double room (Shared). Deposit to secure your reservation: £400
£1,190 Double room (Single occupancy). Deposit to secure your reservation: £500

We will once again be based at the idyllic ‘Hati Suci’  – a wonderful cluster of authentic wooden homes situated amongst paddy fields, nature and authentic Balinese life.

This trip offers both the fun and adventure of organised activities and the freedom and space to do your own thing.

Artini Resort Hotel, Ubud

We gather at the lovely Artini Resort Hotel in Ubud, the cultural centre of Bali.

We spend 2 nights here in the lap of luxury – infinity pools, beautiful gardens and central to all the sights and sounds that Ubud has to offer.

It’s a time to meet your fellow travellers (we will accept up to 18 gay men) meet your host, Darren, and acclimatise to the heat and peaceful pace of life.


Hati Suci   

From here we move to our main base – Hati Suci – off the beaten track.

We will have the use of a swimming pool, yoga space, meditation area and lots of open communal spaces.

We have reserved all of the properties which range from double and twin houses to fully self contained Balinese houses.


“The accommodation we stayed in was well researched, very comfortable and quite unique.”

This Great Gay Getaway is perfect for those who just want to flop, rest and recuperate and also for those who want to fill their days with uplifting and inspiring experiences. 


Your hosts


After 12 years of working with Gay men as a coach and group facilitator, Darren will ensure that everyone in the group feels safe, relaxed, encouraged and included. Its a holiday to truly be yourself.

He will accompany the group throughout and we will also be joined by Hati Suci owners Tim and Giles who will guide us in this totally authentic part of Bali.
