Preparations are underway at The Westin Resort Nusa Dua, Bali for yet another family-style festive season with a well-balanced programme of activities and versatile dining experiences. There is something for everyone this year with family-friendly dinners and special activities just for kids. The celebrations will start in a big way on Christmas Eve with a smart cocktail party at the Lobby Bar & Lounge. This gathering will invite in-house guests to connect and embrace the spirt of the season over themed drinks and light bites. A heartfelt performance from a local children’s choir will set the mood and Santa Claus will be on hand to greet the little ones. A delightful dinner on Christmas Eve will also be served under the stars in a refreshing poolside setting with great food and entertainment for the entire family to enjoy. Appetites will be tempted by festive favorites and succulent seafood to the sounds of live music and a special fire dance performance. Engaging activities will keep youngsters amused during the evening with fun games and novelties. As an alternative dining option, Hamabe will be serving authentic Japanese cuisine with unlimited sushi, sashimi, teppanyaki and robatayaki tasting dishes. A la carte menus will also be available at Ikan overlooking the resort’s famed stretch of white sand beach, while Prego will ensure a flavorful Italian dining experience. For after-dark relaxation, the Beach Lounge will be open until midnight for adults only to enjoy drinks, shisha and chill-out tunes. On Christmas Day, children will have their very own celebration starting off with a fun breakfast party in the balloon-filled ambience of Nusantara Room. There’ll be cool games, a magic show, a visit from Santa and activities supervised by the team from the Westin Family Kids Club. Parents are welcome to come along and join in the merriment. Christmas Day Brunch at Prego promises to be a lively affair featuring an extensive buffet of tempting dishes including a carving station that will have everyone coming back for more.
