Why Bali for NYE is a great idea!

Forget about 2016 and welcome in 2017 in style, Bali style! With year round sunshine, epic waves, cultural festivities and some of the most incredible parties in the world this is where you want to be seeing the New Year in. Dance til dawn on golden sand and watch Kuta’s infamous fireworks light up the sky. Believe us when we say Bali is the ULTIMATE New Year’s celebration, you’ve still got time to book and it certainly beats queuing up for Wetherspoons!

So grab a cocktail and get ready for an unforgettable New Year’s Eve…

The weather

Bali
Escape the cold and drizzle of the UK and see the New Year in tropical style! Bali is a pretty warm climate year round, temperatures averaging around 27 degrees. So December and January will be lovely and warm, you just can’t beat popping champagne bottles in the sunshine! Just keep in mind, it’s also rainy season so there may be a couple of afternoon showers – but when’s a little rain stopped anybody drinking?

The locals

Bali Festivities
When you’re travelling in holiday season there’s no better way to celebrate than with the locals. They’ll know all the good bars, hidden restaurants and where the most awesome festivities can be found. Selamat tahun baru! means Happy New Year! in Bahasa Indonesia and you’ll hear it a EVERYWHERE, especially if you decide to head to the Puputan Badung Square in Depensar on New Year’s Eve.

Puputan Badung Square is located near Bali’s biggest market Pasar Badung, right in the heart of Depensar city. Join locals as they gather around the Catur Muka (four faces statue) for the big countdown and INCREDIBLE fireworks. If you get down to the statue early enough you may catch a parade led by religious leaders and pupils from local schools, traditional and beautiful. You’ll feel like you celebrated New Year’s Eve like a true local. Just an FYI can get pretty crowded so it’s worth heading down early!

Oh and the parties!

Legian and Seminyak are two areas where the party never stops. Legian is THE party zone located in a beachy suburb west of Bali just north of Kuta, it’s where loads of backpackers love to hang! Seminyak further north is the trendiest area on the island with sleek bars, clubs and awesome restaurants. Try to head out early to avoid hectic New Year’s Eve traffic as roads are usually shut for vehicles from about mid afternoon.

Potato head New Year Festival

With two bars, an infinity pool and the best sunsets in Bali this is the perfect spot to see in the New Year. For Potato Head one day is simply not enough for their New Year celebrations, these guys host a two day festival that will blow your mind. The party starts at 3pm on the 31st December all the way through til 2am on 1st January. If you want somewhere to dance, drink and celebrate pretty hard then look no further. This year Rudimental are headlining, along with other international DJ sets and Balinese cultural performances. Ain’t no party like a Potato head party! …kind of works?

 

Double Six rooftop

It is fabulous up here #livingit #up #stylishly #doublesix #hotel #seminyak #rooftop #skyhigh #amazingview #greatplacetobe

If you want the ULTIMATE panoramic snap, then you’ve come to the right place. Situated on the top of Double Six Luxury Hotel, 15 metres above sea level and spanning over 1700 square metres this is one of the WORLD’S largest rooftop bars. It’s the most incredible spot to watch those legendary Seminyak beach New Year’s Eve fireworks, while sipping on a cocktail, listening to live DJs. Admission is relatively cheap around 400,000 IDR (£24!), it’s worth it just for the venue. Double Six is one of the most popular spots in Bali so you’re guaranteed a good night!

 

Deus Ex Machina


If you fancy stepping out of the hectic atmosphere and into something a little more chilled, head to the quieter yet still buzzing area of Canggu, a coastal village just 10KM North of the bustling Kuta. Try Deus Ex Machina for dinner and drinks, you’ll feast on a fusion of Indonesian and Western cuisine and taste some of the most delicious cocktails in Bali! If you can’t indulge at New Year when can you? Chill out after a surf, dine on the sand and enjoy the taste of fresh seafood with an amazing view of the fireworks from Kuta. Just a head’s up – book early to avoid disappointment!

Escape while you still can,head to Bali for New Year’s Eve and make it party to remember!

  1. This is the thing about Bali. The locals are very friendly and you will see many festivals that will keep your holiday spirit alive. If you like the relaxed sunshine and some of the most beautiful beaches in the world then I suggest visit Komodo too. Indonesia has many places to see.

Noeelhntess, I am sorry, because I can not give credence to your whole plan, all be it exhilarating none the less. It appears to everybody that your opinions are actually not entirely validated and in simple fact you are generally your self not totally confident of your point. In any case I did appreciate reading it.

That clause is how they got rid of the law they once had mandating motorcycle helmets. That is the approach I support.”I agree with that, so long as such a person, having had an accident, doesn’t try to sue the government or someone else on the basis that they shouldn’t have been allowed to ride without a helmet.  Miles_Teg

  20. Wie kann man nur ehren­werte Katholiken mit bösen Pharisäern ver­wech­seln? Das sind doch ein­deu­tig ver­schie­dene Zeitalter. Und der Jesus hat doch klar gegen Pharisäer Stellung bezo­gen. Da aber der Papst – laut Selbstverständnis des Heiligen Stuhls – immer noch der leg­time Nachfolger und irdi­sche Stellvertreter ist, kann das ja so nicht sein.Mit Ironie kann man die­sen Moralpredigern wirk­lich immer noch am bes­ten bei­kom­men. Da stimme ich mit Meister Lehnert über­ein.

  58. Honestly, I think the key is to order carefully. Value for money can go out the window fast here if you are not paying attention. The specials were good, and while all were not spectacular, all were under 400 CZK. That made a difference in my mind.On the visit years ago, I think I ordered something that didn’t play to their strength, like pork tenderloin. My recollection being that it was dull and dry.

  60. Joe, Your assumptions are correct. Right now JSW is the only large-scale forging supplier in the world. If we build the number of nuclear plants we say we want to build, then more facilities will be needed. Building nuke plants in the US would help revitalize its manufacturing base instead of having to rely on overseas suppliers. It’s supply and demand – if you build the plants, manufacturers will come.

  64. Love it. I must get me to an IKEA soon. I never thought that IKEA would have much besides storage containers that would work in my old farmhouse, but they really do. Isn't funny when you watch movies or TV and you notice every IKEA item (and they are legion)in a scene? Will of Will + Grace had my kitchen cabinets. And why do many people uppercase IKEA? Maybe because their sign is like that? But many signs are all uppercase. It seems to be common thing. Much to ponder.

This "feature" adds nothing to the core utility of search, it's just chrome and bigger fenders.Say hi to The Fonz for me, I'll be using Bing.

  70. RE: – One glaring omission from that article is any explanation of why the guy doesn’t have insurance.This type of situation is exactly why Obamacare calls for mandatory insurance. To force healthy people to pay so that when they suddenly become unhealthy and need an expensive treatment that they were at least paying into a system that funds payment for the treatment. That is a valid problem, but the Obamacare solution is the wrong solution. – Rate this comment: 0  0
