DirectRooms.com reveals that holidaymakers to the Indonesian island of Lombok can join thousands for the spectacular ‘island-style’ New Year celebrations
New Year celebrations will begin on the eve of 1st January where thousands of partygoers will flock to the main tourism region of Senggigi. Hundreds of bars will be hosting New Year parties all along the main strip and the festive atmosphere will be in full swing.
Live bands will play in bars and clubs on the island and the drinking, dancing and partying will continue into the small hours of the night. Those people who are relaxing on the beach can enjoy live performances of Indonesian melodies and popular songs.
Hotels compete for partygoers, putting on fantastic firework displays at midnight, which light up the whole bay. Soft sand beaches are decorated with lanterns and candles while BBQs are set up offering fresh seafood and meats.
At midnight, hotels host ceremonies where new trees are planted and baby turtles are released back into the sea after they have been nurtured by locals. Locals throw confetti made from dried flowers and leaves as they wish one another a happy new year.
Travelers will look for cheap Lombok hotels close to the beach, in order to be at the centre of all the celebrations.
Lek Boonlert, marketing head at DirectRooms.com commented: “The New Year celebrations in Lombok are spectacular and hotels are usually at maximum capacity during this time. Travelers who want to find cheap accommodation should book well in advance.”
