Bali New Year’s Eve

Did someone say “New Year’s Eve”? Or maybe, “Malam Tahun Baru”?
If you are looking for a good New Year’s party in Bali, you won’t be lacking options. Even in the year that brought us Covid and near-global travel shutdowns, there is still plenty on offer on New Year’s in Bali.
Bali is renowned as an island that knows how to party. It definitely knows how to spoil you with a plethora of options when it comes to celebrating New Year’s Eve. Whether you want to relax and stay in, have a nice fine-dining experience, or a rage at a full-blown dance party to welcome 2022, Bali has you covered.

When it comes to holidays and special dates, Bali uses two calendars for double the fun. There is the Saka (Balinese calendar) and the regular Gregorian calendar. So in terms of celebrating the new year, you get to enjoy two Bali New Year’s parties.
