Festive season is right around the corner, bringing with it our uniquely hedonistic celebration of the holidays – the 12 Days of Karma! As always, our luxury beach resort Karma Kandara is leading the charge with a bumper calendar, plus we have a very special castaway New Year’s Eve party lined up at Karma Reef Gili Meno this year. Over in Europe, Alpine retreat Karma Bavaria is laying on the Christmas treats in a more classically mid-winter setting! Here are some 2017/2018 highlights to add to your calendar…
24 DEC – TWAS THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS – KARMA BAVARIA – GERMANY
Christmas Eve at the foothills of the Bavarian Alps kicks off with a leisurely family brunch from 11am. Explore Munich’s Christmas markets or take a stroll around Lake Schliersee, before we gather everyone around a roaring bonfire at 4.30pm to enjoy the dulcet tones of the Schliersee Alps Choir. Round out the evening with a hearty five course feast at Karmasee Restaurant, featuring festive Bavarian favourites, twinkling Christmas lights, holly and of course a magnificent tree…
27 DEC – EAT PRAY LOVE – KARMA KANDARA – BALI
Treat yourself to a festive feast, Balinese style as our accomplished local chefs prepare a cornucopia of classics, with Bali’s most famous dish, Babi Guling (roast suckling pig) taking centre stage. Discover the sensory delights of dishes like sate lilit (minced spiced pork on a stick) lawar (finely chopped mixed vegetables, herbs and spices) and bebek betutu (richly seasoned steamed duck) while we regale you with a performance of the famous Kecak dance, dramatizing a famous story from the Hindu Epic Ramayana.
31 DEC – BLACK & WHITE GALA DINNER – KARMA REEF, GILI MENO
Ring in the new year in castaway comfort as we host a barefoot black & white themed gala dinner – tuxes & evening gowns extremely optional! Spend the last day of 2017 communing with sea turtles and vibrant reef fish right off Karma Reef Gili Meno beach, before repairing to the beach where we’ll be serving up a sumptuous feast while our resident DJ invites you to trip the light fantastic on a white sand dance floor into 2018…
03 DEC – BURNING BEACH – KARMA BEACH, KANDARA – BALI
We close things up with a day-long homage to the undisputed Mecca of hedonism and free expression – the Burning Man festival! This year, we’ve brought in legendary Balearic music maestros Pete Gooding (UK) and Jon Sa Trinxa (Spain), confirming Bali’s growing status as the Ibiza of the East! Plus we have veteran Glasgow duo Silicon Soul (Soma) expertly blending everything from tech to soul to disco as we take you deep into the night – a fitting end to a spectacular 12 Days of Karma!
