A Creative Feast with an Asian Twist
In conjunction with the Full Moon on 18 Dec. 2021, the team at Conrad Bali’s Eight Degrees South has curated an immersive experience to celebrate this luminous lunar phase in authentic Balinese style.

The Balinese festive celebration ends with a locally-sourced, three-course set menu accompanied by a traditional Legong dance and gamelan music.
For a local spin to traditional celebrations, Hilton chefs have created a fusion menu in tribute to familiar Asian flavours. Tosca at DoubleTree by Hilton Melaka delivers a fun, Asian Churrasco Fiesta poolside on New Year’s Eve. The menu includes a wide selection of fresh seafood on ice and Asian creations, which feature the culinary team's popular chicken tandoori and fish tikka cooked over charcoal, roasted whole lamb spiced with “percik,” roasted "asam pedas" salmon, grilled satay and Malaysian pancake with various condiments for dessert.

Guests can indulge in the lavish feast while listening to the soothing sounds of acoustic live music and watching the sky turn to twilight before ushering in 2022.
Over in other South East Asian cities, revellers can ring in 2022 on a convivial note with everything from scrumptious buffets to bottomless cocktails. To welcome the year with a touch of luxury, guests can partake in celebrations at Café@2 at Conrad Bangkok or Oscar's at Conrad Centennial Singapore.
