Wake up in paradise and witness the first sunrise of 2020 from a remote private island in Indonesia. Let the crystal blue water, good music and close friendships be the backdrop of your best New Year’s celebration yet.
1 island, 50 guests and 1 incredible New Year’s Eve!
This New Year’s Eve we’re changing it up. We’ve hit the overcrowded night clubs and lost our friends just before the clock struck 12. And we’ve played it safe and witnessed the madness from inside our homes, but there’s always something missing. The feeling of freedom. The thrill of adventure. The inspiration that will drive the year ahead.
✓ New Year’s Eve on your own private island
✓ Beautiful wooden beach palace accommodation
✓ Be part of the Follow Alice family
✓ Live acts, themed parties and international DJs
✓ An array of fun activities to enjoy across the island
✓ Enjoy an all inclusive stay
Other than basking in the sun on a remote private island with some of your favourite pals, this experience offers you so much more than just the island itself. Over the course of these 3 days you can expect:
Themed beach parties with perfectly curated music. We’ve teamed up with some of the funkiest musicians for live music performances throughout the weekend. We’re stocked with incredible food, an abundance of champagne (of course!) and an impressive fireworks display over the Indian Ocean. The island also offers other fun activities like swimming, snorkeling and other water activities. The perfect opportunity to get those floaties out and work on that tan to get the year started! The island is also an ideal spot for just sitting back and relaxing. Expect inspiring views, beautiful lush walks through the island and a beach to do, well, whatever you like really. That’s the beauty of a private island.
New Year’s Eve will never be the same
This year we come together, not only for the celebration of another trip around the sun, but a celebration of life. Of sunsets and sunrises, of adventures and new experiences. A celebration of moonlit oceans and starry skies, and above all – the celebration of new and old friendships.

“Travelling with friends and friends of friends is the best way to travel as proven by Follow Alice!” Julia Lenoilzro
With only a handful of bungalows on this tiny, pristine island, you are guaranteed blissful serenity. Everything is done with simplicity and style in a way that connects you with the local culture. The staff are absolutely wonderful and will do anything for you and always with a smile. The bungalows are spacious with plentiful daybeds and fans (in lieu of air-con), and just meters from the sand!
The accommodation is made entirely of driftwood, you will be accommodated in beautiful Balinese style, open plan, ensuite palaces (and we mean palaces!) equipped with comfortable king sized beds.
“I cannot give it anything less than five stars for being a truly unique experience in stunning, authentic accommodation and a million dollar location” Ebonie Acosta
The beautiful pool is located at the centre of the island and is 25 meters long and 4 meters deep; enormous and surrounded by lots of sun lounges and palm trees. The pool house is home to the well-stocked bar and sound system, in addition to being THE place for chilling out and relaxing during your stay on the private island. So grab a cocktail, your sunnies, and soak up the sun!
The pool in the centre of the island is a perfect hangout
Whether you’re lounging in a beach chair or perched on some driftwood long our white sand beach, the private island has great spots to catch breathtaking sunrises and sunsets. The island is an ideal size that doesn’t require a far walk to view either one of these gorgeous natural events. Far removed from the hustle and bustle of Singapore, the island offers you star gazing you without the light pollution of the busy city. Find a place to perch on the beach after dinner and enjoy the tranquility that the island offers.
“The island is blessed with pristine white sandy beaches and turquoise waters” Millie Dodd
And you thought a secluded private island dinner on a white sand beach surrounded by tiki torches and sparkling lights couldn’t get much better. Keep the conversation going under the stars with the beautiful glow of a bonfire setup up just for you and your loved ones. One of the many benefits of our small, secluded private island is the fact that you will find gorgeous shells and coral along the white sand beaches. With a limited number of guests, you’re bound to find a treasure (or many)!
Expect themed beach parties with perfectly curated music from some of the funkiest musicians and DJs. We will dance into the night on New Year’s Eve and celebrate all together as the clocks turn 12 on our own private island in the middle of the Indian Ocean. All of the alcohol for the weekend is included in the trip price, so get down to the pool bar, grab yourself a cocktail (or two) and get your dancing shoes on!
“Travelling with Follow Alice is mostly about the people and friends that turn into a big travel family!” Nina Janicka
The food is an incredible array of Western and Indonesian-style dishes, with meal time enjoyed together and set up in different locations around the island. These include grilled or barbecued fish, squid, prawns, beef and chicken as well as curries of all description. There are side dishes which include fresh garden salads, pasta salads, boiled/steamed leafy greens and grilled aubergine/egg plant (an island favourite). Prawn and tofu kebabs appear from time-to-time as do satay sticks. The home-made salad dressing is raved about as is the freshly-baked bread. You will be served fresh fruit, mango sticky rice and sometimes sago as well as home-made cakes for dessert – the almond cake has now been perfected!
There is no shop on the island. If you are going to crave chocolate or marshmallows for the evening fire, you’ll have to bring your own. But trust us, you’re unlikely to be hungry at any point.
There is a well-stocked bar at the pool pavilion with a good selection of spirits. With a blender on the island, expect your favourite cocktails!
“The food is real Indonesian, for every meal you get a set menu with a wide selection of meat, sea food, fish, vegetables, salad, rice, pasta etc., very yummy!” Caoimhe Salinas
The island offers much more than just an incredible playground to party with your new friends from around the world. It is an ideal place for relaxing: reading in a hammock, sun-bathing by the fresh-water pool, having a massage, kayaking around the island, walking on the beach or swimming in the sea. There is a boules set, table tennis, as well as 4 kayaks to use.
The more adventurous have been known to kayak, sail or even swim to neighbouring islands. We encourage guests to use the speedboats or launches to explore other island or even have a picnic on the tiny deserted neighbouring island. After dinner, relax with a coffee and a glass of wine around a beach bonfire or turn up the music to kick-start the party!
“The beaches and bungalows are so beautiful and despite being remote and private, there is quite a lot to do on the island and you will never be bored!” Peter Loaring
The Eastern tip of the island is where the fish are and the best coral is to the South. Top-of-the-line snorkel gear is available free of charge.
Achieve ultimate relaxation with a offer personalised massage in your Bale house. A 1 hour massage is included in the trip price. Score!
Lets play a game of beach volleyball on the lovely sand court. Nestled between the beach and the pavilion, you’re sure to enjoy a game in the serene surroundings.
There will be sea kayaking equipment available for your enjoyment. Grab a life vest and make a journey around the island to take in the scenic views and majestic waters surrounding Indonesia’s Riau Archipelago.
