It’s official: 2021 is just around the corner, so ring in the New Year in style at these NYE countdown events & special dinners in Bali!
Seriously, where did 2020 go? All thanks to the pesky pandemic, Bali has been unrecognisable this year. We’d usually spend our days sipping on gin & juice at Bali’s best beach clubs, hopping from the beach to Seminyak’s boutiques and back again. But this year has been a bit of a write-off. Luckily, the island is slowly opening up, and now, it’s (almost) time to bid farewell to 2020… good riddance, we say! So, we’re getting ready to welcome 2021 with this list of New Year’s Eve 2021 parties in Bali – the best places to celebrate responsibly with friends, and ring in the New Year in true island style.
From live performances to beachfront dinners, here’s where it’s at for New Year’s Eve 2021 in Bali – the most glamorous, Champagne-popping NYE events that you won’t wanna miss. And for everyone and anyone spending the festive season in Bali, we’ve also rounded up the best places to celebrate Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, and New Year’s Day too! Happy holidays, Honeys!
Update: The Bali Governor has recently announced there won’t be any large-scale NYE parties this year, nor any fireworks events. So, we’ve found a selection of low-key New Year’s Eve celebrations where you can ring in 2021 within the designated restrictions.
