This research aims to explore the work-life balance of millennial hoteliers in the Sarbagita area (Denpasar, Badung, Gianyar, and Tabanan) and its role as a mediator in the relationship between authentic leadership and turnover intention. To answer the objectives of this study, multiple linear regression analysis techniques with the assistance of the SPSS version 28 program were applied. Data collection techniques were carried out by distributing questionnaires to 100 millennial employees and validated through interviews with the general managers of five-star hotels.
