Phuket Gay Homestay
Welcome to Phuket. Thailand.
Update 1 July 2020
We are open for business again. We have equipment for room sterilising with ozone and UV light. Alco gel, wipes ands spray. We will check your temperature to keep you and other guests safe from Covid-19. Welcome back again.
In Thailand you will find that almost every hotel is gay-friendly so how is this place different from everything else? Our customers tell us that it is very different. It’s not a hotel, guesthouse or a room for rent. It’s almost like at home. It’s really a homestay. Our returning guests tell us every visit brings new experiences and new friends. With only 5 rooms and a maximum of 10 simultaneous guests, it’s easy to befriend the other guests or be totally private. Negotiations around the breakfast table enable a variety of activities together. Sometimes there is an excursion to explore the gorgeous beaches and stunning nature of the magic Island, the market or to indulge the nightlife in Patong. If you just want to relax welcome to hang out by the swimming pool. If you need to work we can assure you about good Internet speed, free of charge.
Phuket gay homestay is located in Kathu and therefore close to both Patong and Phuket town and also the most popular beaches. Find out where we are and what’s in the neighbourhood on the location page here.

Explore LGBT life in Phuket
Given its reputation for their beaches, most LGBT travellers go to Phuket while visiting Thailand. Relax at beautiful beaches and the mountainous terrain. Enjoy the beach lifestyle and a vibrant nightlife with plenty of restaurants and entertainment.
Since the hookup world is changing utilizing social apps, like Grindr and Gayromeo will be important if youʼre looking to maximize your interactions with locals and other tourists. If you plan to visit during large festivals like Christmas, New Year, Songkran, Vegetarian festival and Gay Pride be sure to book your room well in advance.
With 40 beaches and over 39 islands surrounding Phuket, you will have plenty to explore.
With a thin line separating the beach life from gay life, youʼll find LGBT locals and visitors all over the island having fun. Patong has the only gathering of gay bars in Thailand South of Bangkok. Paradise Complex is the epicentre of gay nightlife with close to 30 venues. If youʼre not sure where to start just stop over at the Paradise Complex. Come sunset and you can feel the energy as people prepare to head out. Around midnight the social scene gets started. The most popular bars are Zag Club and Boat Bar.
There are two gay saunas in Phuket. Aquarius is located in Patong and caters mainly to tourists. The other, Tara sauna is in Phuket town and serves mainly the expat and local non-commercial community. Be aware that a majority of the visitors at Tara are not “out” and will only visit the sauna after its dark 19:00-22:00.
This is Thailand so you can find a massage with and without “happy ending” (thatʼs how the locals describe it). A really good massage with a male masseur can be difficult to find but here is some advice. C&N massage, Blue Dolphin and Aquarius.
Our swimmingpool is for our inhouse guests but give us a call if you want to buy a day pass for 100 THB
