BALI, January 23, 2018 — GONG XI FAT CHOI! Chinese New Year as known as Spring Festival is the festival for families to come together and wish each other peace and prosperity. It is also traditional for every family to thoroughly clean the house, in order to sweep away any ill-fortune and to make way for incoming good luck. 2018, the Chinese Year of the Earth dog is an opportunity for the Dog to consolidate his achievements and to renew his motivation. It is a time to put our common sense to work, as well as our experience. In the Dog year, the key to succeed is to stay still, there is no relying on instincts, it is a time to rely on the facts and reality. There are very important points to keep in mind for the incoming year. It is a time to focus on everything that has been created on years before, it is a year to build and improve.
Exquisite service at InterContinental Bali Resort’s restaurant is waiting for all the guest in this Chinese New Year. Our Chinese New Year celebrations will be held on 13th – 15th February 2018 at 7pm at the Main Pool Deck, when you will have the opportunity to launch a Flying Lantern as a symbol of good luck.

Our Chinese New Year’s Eve Dinner will take place from 7pm onwards in Jimbaran Gardens. Featuring dishes that are believed to bring health, wealth and happiness for the coming 12 months. This sumptuous feast begins with ‘crab and corn scallion egg drop soup’ served with ‘mantaou’ – a steamed wheat bread from North China, which is always found on Chinese New Year dinner tables. This is followed by traditional salads and appetisers – including ‘chili-marinated Chinese cabbage salad’ and ‘century eggs and lapcion sausage’ plus a wide selection of delicious hot dishes, and a live station presenting fresh egg noodles and kway teow – representative of long life – together with Jimbaran seafood, sliced chicken, beef, pork and a selection of condiments.
