Christmas in Bali

I will be in Ubud, Bali over Christmas and I was wondering if anyone knew of hotels or restaurants that had dinner events or things for Christmas Eve or day. Thanks!

  1. Pretty much all the restaurants will be open since Christmas is not a holiday in Indonesia. I've spent Christmas in Bali twice (once in Kuta and once in Ubud). Hotels have great (but expensive, relatively speaking) dinners with all the trimmings, but you can sometimes find restaurants which cater to expats that do turkey dinners complete with plum pudding for dessert.

    If you arrive in Ubud before Christmas, just wander around the town or ask at your hotel for information. At least for smaller restaurants, you usually have to reserve, and it's probably the same for larger hotels.

    1. Try the Balinese Tapas at Nomad restaurant. Good way to sample a little bit of everything. Tons of good places to eat there.

      1. The Cat & Fiddle Restaurant in Sanur does a great English Christmas dinner!
