The season of excess is upon us, so put down the salad fork and charge your glasses as we count down the ten most happening Bali playgrounds to party in as we head into 2015. From beach club masquerade balls to animalistic hedonism in Seminyak here’s our top 5.
Go Wild at Potato Head Beach Club
It’s all out jungle mayhem down at Seminyak’s #1 emporium of fun for NYE. The dress code is animal chic and the sounds are coming from notorious London House legend Phat Phil Cooper, LBS and Flic. Expect Tech House and funky four to the floor underground vibes all night long. VIP and Bar Deck tickets are sold out so be quick.
Advance tickets only $120.00 with $1.15 fees. Arrive before 10pm and receive one complimentary Potato Head cocktail creation.
Masquerade Ball at Karma Beach Club
Make the long trek south to Karma Kandara and indulge in a full on masquerade ball including canapés, a 5 course dinner, guest DJs (lineup TBC) a Cirque Du Soleil performance from Allegria, burlesque entertainers, and then decamp to Karma Beach for the midnight countdown. Prices are as steep as the Karma cliff line mind you at $300.00++ per head.
Fly the Flag at Merah Putih
Go red and white all the way and join the most Indonesian NYE party in town at Merah Putih with an Indonesian 6 course sharing menu, free flow beer, wine, spirits and cocktails, and DJ entertainment till late. They get the nod here for being one of the very few places in town decent enough to provide free flow. Selamat tahun baru!
Merah Putih, $160.00++ reservations reqd. +62 361 8465950, firstname.lastname@example.org
Beach Chic this NYE at Chez Gado Gado

Recover in Style at St Regis
Keep things trucking into the New Year with the infamous Kayuputi Astor Diamond Champagne Brunch at St Regis. Start up in the King Cole Bar with the best Bloody Mary on the island, then get stuck into arguably the finest brunch available on the island with lashings of bubbles in the opulent surrounds of the beachfront dining palace that is Kayuputi. Indulge too hard and you may as well book a villa to sleep it off in.
$110.00++ per person, drinks packages also available, dress to impress. Bookings on +62 361 3005540
