Forget snow-covered wreaths and chestnuts by the fire - Christmas at Padma Resort Legian is all about sun-soaked celebrations by the beach!
Every Christmas and New Year, we see wintry pictures around the world of snow-capped grottos, hot cocoa and fluffy socks by the fire. But if you ask us, there really is nothing quite like a tropical Christmas in Bali, where festive brunches are served up beside the seaside, and countdown parties take place beneath the stars! Well, this year we’re doing exactly that, because at the beachfront Padma Resort Legian, there’s an entire itinerary full of sun-soaked Christmas and New Year events right by the beach, and we can’t wait to try them all!
Sitting on the golden sands of Legian, surrounded by hectares of manicured tropical gardens and breathtaking odes to local art and culture, we never need an excuse to while away a sunshiney day at Padma Resort Legian. This iconic resort is where it’s at for five-star amenities, stunning oceanfront views, a world-class spa and gourmet dining destinations too. And when it comes to spending the festive season at this luxury destination? We’re packing our bags faster than you can say sunny seaside celebrations…
Festive in Bloom: All the beachside celebrations at Padma Resort Legian
This year, Padma Resort Legian is setting the festive scene with an entire lineup of delicious and family-friendly celebrations, all part of its “Festive in Bloom” festivities. Starting early on December 9th, a Tree Lighting Ceremony and live choir will get you into the Christmassy spirit, followed by a Christmas Bazaar and Concert on December 17th. The evening will be filled with Christmas carols by Indonesia’s first and leading male harpist, Rama Widi, topped off with plenty of festive cheer.
Fast-forward to Christmas Eve, and there’ll be a live choir and the choice of either an Omakase-style Peruvian-Japanese Nikkei and Teppanyaki Dinner at TENKAI, or a surf-and-turf Land & Sea Soiree at DONBIU, both of which will be serenaded by a live acoustic performance. As for little guests, there’ll be a Holly Jolly Night Kids Party, where the little ones can join in on fun and games with Mr Elf, alongside magic tricks, movies and sweet treats too!
Then on Christmas Day itself, the gourmet feasts continue, beginning with a Christmas Bliss buffet brunch featuring delicious signatures from around the world, alongside live music, a Christmas choir and the chance to meet Santa. And you’ll want to save space for what’s to come, because in the evening, you can choose from a fancy Mediterranean buffet dinner at DONBIU, or the popular Omakase-style Peruvian Japanese Nikkei and Teppanyaki Dinner at TENKAI. And psst – seats are filling up fast, so be sure to reserve your spot!
And to really celebrate the season (and to get you back on your dancing feet), throughout the festive season there’ll be special offers on spa treatments too, because it wouldn’t be Christmas without a bit of bliss. Head over to The Spa at Padma Resort Legian and try the Holiday Me Time package, which features a sandalwood lulur scrub, a warm-stone massage and a blow dry. Or, treat yourself to a Phyto Organic Facial by Pevonia, a hair spa, and a mani-pedi with the Fresh New You package. That’s our kind of Christmas present!
The festive celebrations don’t stop there. Last but certainly not least is the New Year’s Eve celebration – a very special buffet dinner at both DONBIU and the Plumeria Grand Ballroom. And as the clock moves closer to midnight, head over to the Infinity Poolside for the 2023 Countdown, with live music and DJs, plus a complimentary countdown cocktail. And to really welcome the new year with a bang, the festivities will be topped off with a New Year’s Day Sunday Splash party at the Seruni Poolside, complete with groovy disco tunes, food stalls and happy hours too. We’ll cheers to that!
