Comments from Utopians:
"Thank goodness for Villa Layang Bulan, which offers upscale accommodation in a gay/clothing optional environment for a reasonable price. The villa includes a warm, but refreshing, swimming pool, with lounge chairs and a little pondok/hut. The breakfast is simple but delicious, and the staff are very friendly and attentive. Edwin, the owner, was absent while I was there, but his 'deputy' was very friendly and helpful, patiently explaining the villa's facilities and the surrounding restaurants and amenities in Batu Belig. That is something to note: you are located just outside Seminyak, in the up-and-coming area of Batu Belig. It's not so far from Seminyak, but you'll either need to take taxis, take advantage of the villa's drop-offs into town, or rent a bike (available from the villa - but be sure you have an international driver's licence or you'll be paying 'fines' to the local traffic police). At the end of the street is the gay-popular Batu Belig beach. Overall, highly recommended!" -- cyrc_84, Jun 30, 2013
"I stayed at Villa Layang Bulan for 8 nights and had an excellent, wonderful stay at this very friendly place. My room was nice and well equipped. The staff is very helpful, friendly and polite. I was a bit worried by reading 'clothing optional', are they all walking naked around? No, except for enjoyable nude swimming in the nice pool! All guests were well-behaved. Nice to have breakfast with the other guests and find out about each other. I really had a very pleasant expirience." -- maersu, Feb 7, 2013
