Bali [Indonesia], December 1 (ANI/NewsVoir): Inviting Bali visitors and local community to stage memorable island celebrations at its spectacular cliffside venues, the newly opened Jumeirah Bali has unwrapped an enticing programme of Christmas and New Year's Eve celebrations ahead of its first festive season.
From flame-grilled delights at AKASA and spectacular fireworks on the New Year's Eve to languid brunches, this yuletide season Jumeirah Bali will be showing off the team's culinary prowess as well as the resort's cosy side.
On 16 December, festivities will kick off with a glittering cocktail party during which resort guests and the local community will be invited to decorate a Christmas tree with meticulously crafted ornaments, followed by a round of cocktails and carols in observance of a timeless tradition, and a dazzling Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony. The event is open to the public and will take place on Trowulan level between 5:00 pm and 7:00 pm.
On 24 December, festivities will kick off with a Christmas Eve Degustation Dinner at AKASA, the signature Asian twist restaurant serving elevated flame-grilled fusion cuisine. The exclusive event will feature a premium selection of dishes with an Asian twist, including such highlights as lobster, salmon, foie gras and duck meticulously prepared by Chef de Cuisine Joan Achour.
The six-course degustation menu will be served against a background of uninterrupted views of the Indian Ocean and amid royal splendour inspired by the Majapahit Empire.
For enchanting Christmas Eve gatherings both intimate and large, Segaran Dining Terrace-where panoramic views of the ocean meet an elegant indoor/outdoor setting-invites guests to experience a gourmet Christmas Eve Dinner from Executive Chef Vincent Leroux. Accompanying a masterfully rendered six-course meal that re-mixes subtle East Asian flavours will be live acoustic music and the sound of gently lapping waves drifting up from the beach below.
On Christmas Day, an indulgent Christmas Brunch will be served at Segaran Dining Terrace inviting guests to settle into a serene afternoon, as Jumeirah chefs take them on a culinary journey of delectable Christmas dishes, holiday classics, South-East Asian delights and international fare with free flow beverages. Festive carollers performing heart-warming renditions of Christmas songs and a live band will further add to the atmosphere of festive enchantment.
Brunch guests can also stop at Maja Lounge Terrace for a spot of last-minute festive shopping and to soak up the atmosphere of a lively Christmas Bazaar, with an array of handmade products and fashions by local artists and designers on sale from 12.00 pm to 4.00 pm.
On the New Year's Eve, Jumeirah Bali offers guests several options to ring in 2023 in style. At Segaran Dining Terrace, a glittering New Year's Eve Gala Dinner will be held from 7.30 pm onwards with a set menu of exquisite South-East Asian flavours from Executive Chef Vincent Leroux.
Crustacean lovers and meat devotees, meanwhile, will find plenty to be excited about at AKASA where a six-course New Year's Eve Gala Dinner will be showcasing fresh seafood, premium grilled meats and delectable desserts from AKASA's Chef de Cuisine Joan Achour.
After dinner, all guests are invited to join in the White New Year's Eve Masquerade-a dazzling countdown party taking place on Trowulan level under Bali's twinkling stars from 11.00 pm to 01.00 am.
Here, fire dancers, awe-inspiring midnight fireworks, and back-to-back DJ sets will ensure that the start of the New Year is nothing short of spectacular. The experience is complimentary for guests with restaurant reservations and can also be purchased separately.
On the first day of 2023, festivities at Jumeirah Bali will continue with a decadent New Year's Day Brunch at Segaran Dining Terrace with live DJ sets setting the mood.
