A New Year. A New Year's Wish. Why not start with a party that promises to start it off with a bang and more?
Two years after battling the Pandemic, people are ready to party. They want to give it their all and celebrate the fact that they made it out alive. If you are one of these people, and wish to spare no expense for a New Year party, this list will help you narrow down your options of luxurious parties:
If you wish to see the Ball Drop live, New York is the place for you. If you wish to be cocooned in luxury, away from crowds and surrounded by good food and wine, you should head to the VIP Party hosted at the Marriott Marquis. For USD 5000, you will feel like royalty as you sip on champagne and join the revelers in comfort with a spectacular view from the eighth floor. You can also book a luxury new year’s dinner cruise on a yacht at the Staten Island or head to one of the many clubs to party the night away. Just remember to peek out at midnight to have a look at the spectacular fireworks.
Sydney’s annual New Year’s Eve celebrations, replete with the most breath-taking fireworks, is famous the world-over. Tickets for the 24 vantage points are a huge sell out as people come from far and near and then head to one of the many luxurious parties. For about AUD 1000, you can check in to the Sydney Opera House for a sensational night of performances, fireworks, food and bonhomie. Get your tickets at the earliest as Covid-19 restrictions mean reduced numbers. If you are unable to secure one, you can book one of the many luxury NYE cruises ranging from AUD 750 to 1200. A must-see new year destination, Sydney’s magic will surely wipe away your 2021 blues.
New Year’s Eve comes alive in the lap of luxury. If you are in Dubai, you can ring in New Year’s Eve 2022 in ultimate style aboard the Lotus Megayacht. For approximately AED 5000, you can treat yourself to an enchanting view of the fireworks and a tantalizing buffet with an open bar in the comfiest setting money can buy. If this is not up to your budget, celebrate the New Year while cruising the Dubai waterfront, catch the laser show at Burj Khalifa or walk into one of the many world-class restaurants that line the streets. Although Dubai tends to appear in one of the most expensive places to visit lists, it also offers good value for money.
For an incandescent New Year Party, you could go for a ride on the Cape Wheel or book a gondola to look at the city lights. Cape Town has something to offer for everyone, whether you are young or old. At the Grand Africa Café and Beach, you can soak in the beachy atmosphere while gorging on some of the best food SA has to offer. If you would like to unwind with a top-notch New Year’s dinner you can check out world-class restaurants like La Colombe, Belly of the Beast and Chef’s Warehouse.
If high-octane beach parties are your preferred way, look no further than Cancun for your New Year Party. Also, if spending thousands of dollars for a night does not terrify you, The Mandala Beach Club promises to live up to your expectations and more. Themed parties, great food and drinks right near the beach are sure to lift your spirits and give you a starry-eyed view of the future. Celebrating the New Year is as easy as pie in this Mexican beach town known for its pristine beaches and pulsating nightlife. Luxurious parties are the norm at Cancun’s beachside resorts, guaranteed to enliven your New Year’s Eve 2022.
