The best thing you can do in 2018 is to hop on a plane and bring in 2019 on the Island of Gods, Bali. This tropical island is the perfect match for a peaceful welcome or a roaring over-the-top party! Pack your dancing shoes and beachy sandals for a holiday you will never forget.
Restaurants, cafes and bars go all out with their menus during the holiday season. Roast turkeys, glazed hams, decadent desserts, and festive cocktails – a feast fit for a king. Well, at least you won’t miss home. Elaborate Christmas brunches and New Year dinners are quite the thing in Bali with a wide selection of Indonesian and Western dishes. For a Michelin-level meal, make a beeline for Jamie’s Italian at Kuta Beach. A special menu has been crafted not just for adults but for kids too. Go in for the Fantastic Sharing Feast Menu priced at IDR 1,000,000/person. For each adult meal, get a kids meal free.
Sit back on the beach under a starry sky and a shower of firework-induced sparkle. The dazzling display sets the mood for a fun night. Whether you’re relaxing on the beach or downing fancy cocktails on a rooftop bar, it’s the colourful evening sky that you’ll be eyeing.
Head to Alila Seminyak’s beachfront paradise for a fantastic fireworks display counting down the seconds to the new year. Entry is free here but you can buy some delicious snacks at the food market.
Potato Head put on an excellent show as well. Make sure to grab your spot on the crowded deck. Tickets are selling out fast. Book your tickets here.
Beach Clubs & Bars
Bali is famous for it and you can’t do without it – it’s the vibrant beach clubs and bars with a generous helping of a relaxed vibe. Beach clubs and bars come alive during Christmas and New Year’s eve with fantastic DJs manning the decks and delicious food and sparkling drinks being served all around. Whether you’re grooving to the beats or swimming in the sea and relaxing on the sun loungers, the ambience and the experience is beyond compare. Jump into saltwater pools, float on the water all day, margaritas by the pool and so much more at Mrs Sippy. Get ready to dance like never before as the legendary Pete Tong does his magic. The New Year bash at Potato Head Beach Club featuring Disclosure will be unforgettable! Woobar at W Bali featuring Doorly, Olivia Dawn and Internet Slang is going to be packed to the brim with thumping music and drinks pouring like water.

Relax in Tropical Heaven
There’s nothing quite like a white Christmas (back home) but it mostly comes with its share of chaos in the house and outside it. So, the only advice we can give? Run! Run like the wind to Bali – the world’s favourite tropical oasis. Azure waters lined with golden sand beaches bordered by swaying palms – such a warm welcome to your tropical holiday.
Do yourself a favour and book a private villa at Chandra. At the heart of every villa at Chandra is a sparkling pool. Surrounded by bales and sun loungers, whiling the day away has never been easier. Reenergise with a floating breakfast tray in the pool – a fresh fruit bowl, hearty omelette and coconut water to kickstart the day.

Detox and energise with a Vitamin IV treatment that can be set up in the privacy of your villa. For fitness enthusiasts, yoga and martial arts sessions can be arranged with a trained instructor. Detox, relax and rejuvenate with a famous Balinese massage. After your session of choice, step into your open-to-sky bathtub and soak those tired muscles.
We’ll pamper you with a custom menu cooked by your private chef. Candle lights, starry skies and swaying trees create an unforgettable ambience, memories to be cherished forever. Read our recommendations on how to calm the Xmas craze with a rejuvenation getaway to Bali.
For the young ones, a special kid’s menu can be created, pool fences installed, pool toys sourced and a babysitter arranged so mum and dad can enjoy some alone time. Chandra also has a small library dedicatedly for kids as well as a range of baby-care items including cots, high-chairs, a stroller and a potty chair – all available for free.
Book your private villa in Chandra to escape it all. But, if you’re having a serious case of FOMO, then head to the many restaurants, bars and beach clubs within walking distance from your villa.
