That’s enough to fill three tennis courts. Hit the dancefloor and get ready to throw some serious shapes – all without slipping and sliding, we dare you. Fair warning, you won’t be coming out clean. But we bet you already knew that.
Killer beach view, check. An epic party under the stars, check. Fireworks at midnight? Triple check. When the clock strikes 12, prepare for a stunning five-minute-long showcase of pyrotechnics, laser lights and fireworks that’s happening right on Siloso’s beachfront. Now all that’s left is for you to find that perfect someone to share that New Year’s smooch with.
What’s a party without some food and drinks? Indulge in the Fingerlicker Platter, which piles on barbecue chicken wings, fishball, chicken nuggets and potato wedges. Or get messy with the Samurai Meatballs on Bun – it’s teriyaki chicken sandwiched between two sesame buns that’s topped with mayonnaise, bonito flakes and seaweed, and served with a side of mash potato and pickled salad. On the drinks menu chug down Singha beers and Party Buckets, which includes shots of bourbon, vodka, gin or rum with either coke, sprite or Monster drink.
Forget having to dress to the nines – come in your comfiest chic clothing because it’s all about living to the fullest and having the best night of your life here. Ladies, you won’t have to worry about tripping over your heels. Let your hair down and go barefoot as you sink your toes in the powdery soft sand and dance 2017 away.
