’Tis the season to be jolly and indulgent. Fine food and live entertainment is just part of InterContinental Bali Resort’s fun-filled festive season programme of sumptuous dining events and celebrations, as well as a whole host of leisure activities for couples, solo travellers, families and children.
The festivities will begin on Christmas Eve, with complimentary Christmas Cocktails served in the Saraswati Lounge accompanied by Christmas Carols performed by the children of Widya Asih orphanage. In the evening, guests have the choice of two exceptional Christmas Eve dining options: Bella Cucina Restaurant will serve a Christmas Eve set dinner, while KO Restaurant, Teppanyaki & Cocktail Lounge offers an authentic Japanese experience with a Sushi Extravaganza.
Santa Claus himself will herald the Christmas Day festivities, arriving at the Resort Lobby at 10 am in his horse-drawn carriage to spread a special message of peace and goodwill. The merriment will continue at Bella Cucina with a Festive Family Brunch and/or a Christmas Day Dinner accompanied by all the trimmings.
InterContinental Bali Resort offers something for everyone on New Year’s Eve with the choice of a Seafood Buffet Extravaganza at Jimbaran Gardens, accompanied by live music; a New Year’s Eve Italian Dinner “just like Mama used to make” at Bella Cucina with a live band; or Japanese Delights at KO Restaurant, Teppanyaki & Cocktail Lounge. For a truly romantic and memorable New Year’s Eve experience, honeymooners and couples can opt for a Candlelit Intimate Dinner, paired with caviar and Dom Pérignon Champagne, inclusive of music and served by a personal butler and chef in a ‘bale’ pavilion overlooking Jimbaran Bay. Finally, revellers can welcome in the New Year at Sunset Beach Bar & Grill with a Countdown Party, where they can rock to the rhythm of the DJ music, and marvel at a rousing firework display that will light up the sky over Jimbaran Bay.
