So you’re staying in Bali for the Silly Season and still wondering where’s the place to be to be come Christmas and New Year’s Eve? Semara Collection has festive season celebrations all wrapped up for 2016. Whether you are looking for a place to party hard or a more family friendly affair, Semara’s two popular venues, The Canggu Club and Finns Beach Club have something to suit everybody.
Christmas is a time for family and you won’t get more family sized fun on December 25th than at The Canggu Club and Splash Water Park! Nobody wants to slave away in the kitchen in the summer heat so why not bring loved ones along for a sumptuous traditional buffet lunch where everyone is welcome, at Bali’s premier event and entertainment venue. Lunch is served from noon and for just RP900K nett per adult (RP600K for CC members) and even less for teens and tots respectively, you get to stay away from the stove, fill up on traditional festive fare then cool off on the slides at Splash after lunch! It’s a win for everyone.
Share the love and celebrate Christmas with the kids from Jodie O’Shea Orphanage. Live entertainment continues throughout the afternoon, Santa might just make an appearance and everyone is welcome to stay on into the evening to enjoy Starlight Movies and S’mores.
Fast forward a little over a week to the first day of 2017 and I’ll bet you’ll be looking for somewhere to soak up the previous evening’s ‘festivities’ and celebrate New Year’s Day with a hearty feed. Bistro C at The Canggu Club is serving casual brunch from 10am -2pm for just Rp400K per adult (less for the littler ones of course). Take advantage of an air conditioned or al fresco dining experience complete with all of the best tunes from the year that was, drink specials to top up the celebrations and a ton of fun and games, family style. Not just for Canggu Club members, walk ins are welcome and day passes to stay and play at Splash Water Park are readily available for non Canggu Club members.
Looking for a party that’s a little more lively? Perhaps Finns is more your speed. Just a little way down the road from The Canggu Club at Berawa Beach is Bali’s newest offering in beach clubs – Finns (another gem in the Semara Collection crown). With 2016 being Finns very first festive season, they’ve decided to blast into 2017 with a two day festival!
Their New Year’s Eve Party is strictly adults only with five hours of late night fun from 10pm til 3am. It’s free entry for everyone and a minimum F&B spend applies, the amount depending on how close you want to be to the centre of the action, whether it be daybed, booth or bar. Dancers, DJs, fireworks, stilt walkers and world class entertainment continues into the wee hours so you can bring in the New Year Bali style at the hottest new venue on the island. Don your swimwear and the desire to party!
Now we all know that a few too many bubbly beverages from the night before can be cause for a little fogginess the following morning so what better way to clear the head than with a recovery pool party back at Finns on New Year’s Day. An all ages affair, this time the whole family can join the fun from midday until midnight. Once again it’s free entry for everyone with daybeds, booths and lounge areas requiring the predetermined minimum spend. Keep youngsters entertained for the afternoon with family entertainment on the lawn while the big kids ease back at the pool bar and dance to DJ sets until well after the sun goes down.
Plan ahead this year and avoid the frustration of trying to find somewhere to spend Christmas and New Year’s.
