Christmas in Bali is Magical

There is never a bad time to visit Bali. But spending Christmas in Bali can seem magical. For people from the northern hemisphere, it can mean getting away from the miserable ice and snow and spending a few days basking on a warm and exotic tropical beach.

For those from the southern hemisphere, it can mean avoiding the relentless heat and celebrating your Christmas enjoying the balmy ocean breezes while sipping a tall, cool tropical drink.

For everyone, spending Christmas in Bali is a Christmas gift in itself. But, don’t forget about the family and friends you left behind.

Christmas shopping in Bali

Bali is the unofficial art and handicraft centre of Indonesia. From upscale boutiques and galleries to rustic handicraft stalls and workshops, Bali is literally a shopper’s paradise. You’ll have trouble making your mind up what to bring back for everyone.

Shadow Puppets, batik cloth, and handmade furniture are merely the best-known handicrafts of Bali. But once you get there you’ll find that Bali offers much more to offer in the way of gifts.

Silver jewelry, natural soaps and aromatic oils, wooden carvings and woven bags and baskets are just some the things you’ll find offered in Bali’s hundreds of stalls and marketplaces.

Join a Christmas Celebration

The Bali hotels of Jimbaran Beach are gearing up for the holidays and you can be sure that every one of them has something special lined up for Christmas.

Every hotel, restaurant, and bar on the beach will be in full swing celebrating the holidays and many of them will feature special menus and holiday discounts you can enjoy. Make new friends and toast the holidays while you gaze out across the white sand beach and the warm tranquil waters of the Indian Ocean.  

But nowhere else on Jimbaran Beach will you see Santa arriving on a traditional Jukung outrigger boat on Christmas day and greet all guests from the beach in front of the Resort.

Enjoy the InterContinental Bali Resort Festive Season Package

Few resorts in Bali pull out all the stops to celebrate the festive holiday season like the Intercontinental Resort Bali does. Besides Santa dropping in to spread a bit of holiday cheer, guest of the resort will enjoy a range of other luxurious perks and pleasures when they book a stay for two or three nights during the promotional period of the InterContinental Bali Resort Festive Season package.

Spend the holiday in luxury and enjoy a daily breakfast for two in one of three different venues. After your breakfast, relax with a stress-reducing spa treatment for two.
