Bali is a fantastic destination for single guys who want to meet girls. As soon as you'll arrive, you can download some popular dating apps and you'll be surprised by the high number of matches you will get. To be fair, there are also many prostitutes - especially on specific websites like SeekingArrangement - so be aware of it.

Another great way to meet girls in Bali is to visit bars and nightclubs, especially if you are staying around Kuta, Seminyak and Ubud. I wrote extensively about the nightlife in those areas, most recently two weeks ago with my guide: Where to Party in Bali?

In the following article, I will focus on the most recommended spots to meet girls. I've made sure to mention a diversity of venues so you are certain to find exactly what you are looking for - be it a rich student from Jakarta or a 200-pound Australian tourist (nothing wrong with that).

IndonesianCupid (Advertising)
Meeting girls in nightclubs in Bali is relatively easy if you are young, good-looking and confident. For the rest of us, I recommend making some contacts online before going out.

IndonesianCupid works well because most girls there are looking to meet foreigners. Unlike on Tinder, many will not mind if you are not living in Bali.

For this reason, you can start chatting with them even before you arrive in Indonesia and set up a few dates while you are still in your home country.

It is free to register and to look at all the girls' profiles. If you match them, it's also free to chat.

La Favela is the Seminyak equivalent of Sky Garden. It is the busiest bar around, by far, and also a great one to meet beautiful ladies.

Don't visit it too early as it is also a restaurant. Things get more interesting after midnight, when the small dancefloor gets packed and steamy. The music is mainstream with essentially Top 40 hits from the past 30 years.

This nightclub has an underground vibe that makes it popular with expats, and with girls who are trying to meet them. The latter include normal girls, but also professional girlfriends and prostitutes.

Electronic music on most nights. It closes late so you can consider it your last chance to score before going home.

Motel Mexicola is one of the most happening bars in Seminyak, every night of the week. Maybe because of its Mexican theme, it is a magnet for women, mostly Australians and Indonesians.

Just across La Favela, Red Carpet Champagne Lounge is a pickup spot for guys interested in older women (above 40).

The place is often full, with tables very near from each other, so it's easy to befriend your neighbors. Despite its name, Red Carpet isn't really posh: It is laid-back and almost decadent. A fun place to get drunk!

Mirror is a nightclub where most customers are rich Asians (and particularly Indonesians from Jakarta). You will enjoy it if you are looking to meet with young hi-so girls (high-society).

Bonus: Best City to Meet Girls in Bali

One smart guy having a yoga class in Ubud
All the bars and nightclubs I've mentioned so far are located in South Bali. If you go to Ubud, you'll notice a much higher ratio of girls to guys.

Since the movie 'Eat, Pray, Love', the village has become a retreat for all sorts of women (divorcees, backpackers, hippies, etc...). They come for several months to learn about cooking, massage, yoga, art and spirituality among others.

If you are interested in those things, you'll find plenty of dating opportunities. Just join a few classes during the day and hit the bars at night (Laughing Buddha, No Mas).

Ratio guys to girls: 30% guys and 70% girls
Male crowd: Guys with their wives/girlfriends
Female crowd: Girls with their boyfriends/husbands + Single ladies from Western countries and Japan.
Age: 25-65
Pick up possibilities: High

  1. Not sure when the last time you went to La Favela was but definitely in 2018 high season more like 30% + Javanese prostitutes now.

  2. Visiting Bali in April or May stay there for 25 days. Intrested to have a English speaking girl for company. Please advise.

    1. So you want to dump the girl after 25 days you left Bali?

  3. Just walk on street! they will find you.

  4. Great review, thanks!

    I've checked SeekingArrangement, just the free version for now (that only allows to look at girl's profiles and photos).

    I was pleasantly surprised to see so many hotties, especially young ones in their early 20s. Since I'm only in Bali for a short time, it seems like a good way for me to get a companion during my trip.

    Unfortunately, the membership fee is quite expensive at 80 euros. I can afford it, but before paying, I'm wondering if anyone has tried it and if they would be kind enough to give a quick feedback.

    Does it work well? Do the girls reply to your messages? Are they interested with short-time arrangement?

    For your info, I'm 42, white, average looking (but slim, tall, and I have all my hair).

    1. SeekingArrangement works perfect if you are in Bali for a short trip. Not all the girls there are looking for money actually, but they want a guy who can buy them nice dinners, small gifts, etc. I've had romantic relationships with sugar babies that were just like any "normal" relationship.

      Personally, I always find a girl I like in Jakarta, then I ask her if she wants to accompany me in Bali. I would say I'm quite successful on it, even though I'm not spending that much money. It's all about making them feel safe and excited. The 80 euros membership fee is kind of high, but it also guarantees there are only a very limited number of guys using the website. A great investment if you ask me.

    2. As opposed to spending the 80 Euros on the site just go to Jakarta first and pull a chick out of CJs or BATS to go with you to Bali. The local "sugar babies" in Bali are super hard core pros that will seek to part you from as much money as possible. Normal Indo chicks just seeking a dinner or a small gift wouldn't be caught dead with a Bule (foreigner) leave alone trolling sites like "seeking arrangement". You can negotiate a price with the chicks from Jakarta and they will be happy to be able to party in Bali at someone elses expense. The blonde haired Indo chick in the photo from Shishi was a favorite of a mate of mine, she too was procured in Jakarta at CJs. Good Luck!


    The Indonesian Government has just released the terrorist Abu Bakar Baasyir, the Islamic cleric who ordered the bombing of Bali in 2002. Please be aware of a few facts before planning travel to Bali. 1. Bali is the most visited tourist attraction in Indonesia by foreigners. 2. When the President Jokowi was elected Mayor of Solo, Abu Bakar was a major influence in that community and approved of Jokowi as Mayor. 3. Since the bombing of Bali the number of Muslims moving to the island for work has increased 10 fold, the government has been subsidizing the construction of Mosques on the island for the past 10 years. 4. Some of the most recent ministerial appointments of Indonesia have been and are sympathetic to Abu Bakar's plight. 5. If the International community is stupid enough to believe that after being allowed to return to his school Abu Bakar will not plan and or order another act of terrorism then they are delusional. 6. Since the Bali bombing Indonesia has become MORE fundamentalist, not less. 7. While in prison Abu Bakar pledged allegiance to ISIS, an act that would put any other Indonesian behind bars but instead of extending Abu Bakar's sentence, they chose to release him.

    While this does not guarantee another act of terrorism will occur it also does not guarantee that the Government of Indonesia will prevent another act of terrorism from occurring in Bali. I was on the same flight with with many members of Rugby sides, some of whom died in the bombing, BE SMART, BE SAFE!
