Billions of people across the world will be looking to bring the decade down in fine style on New Year’s Eve. Here, Elite Traveler rounds up the most exclusive and luxurious events happening around the world.

The Knickerbocker, New York

Nowhere else of earth celebrates the new year like Times Square in New York. The big ball dropping down to midnight is perhaps one of the day’s most iconic images, but to see it you usually have to battle through immense crowds. That is unless you seal yourself an exclusive spot atop one of the city’s most luxurious hotels.

For $3,100 per person, you and your friends can experience Times Square in ultimate luxury in one of The Knickerbocker’s Private Sky Boxes. These amazing spaces boast direct views of the ball drop and come with all the amenities you would expect from the five-star hotel.

This includes a selection of hors d’oeuvres curated by Michelin-starred chef Charlie Palmer and butler and bottle service with premium libations. Every guest will also be provided with ample space heaters and velour throws to battle the New York winter.

The Biltmore, Miami

See in the start of the 2020s with an ode to the 1920s at a hotel that embodies its timeless glamour even 100 years on. The Biltmore Hotel is the quintessential prohibition-era destination. Built in 1926, it is a relic from an era known for its style and sophistication. This year, the hotel wants to celebrate its origins with a party worthy of The Great Gatsby himself.

Its Roaring 2020s evening takes place in the hotel’s beautiful Granada Ballroom. Guests will be served an exquisite four-course dinner and a premium open bar before heading to the dance lounge. Champagne will be in full flow and a private fireworks display will light up the sky as the clock strikes midnight. Tickets are priced at $667 per person and are extremely limited at the time of writing.


Nikki Beach Saint Barth

Nikki Bech Saint Barth is a warm alternative to New Year’s Eve

Nikki Beach Saint Barth is an Elite Traveler favorite for its dedication to glamour and great food. It usually puts on a fantastic show for New Year’s Eve with Mariah Carey shunning Times Square to perform there last year. This year, it welcomes another music icon in the form of DJ and producer Kygo. He will headline an extravagant night that includes a decadent four-course meal specially created for the evening by chef Antoine Durand and his team.

Inspired by chateau chic meets punk rock, the event’s theme is titled “Rocking The Palace,” where guests will experience a night of dinner, a Queen-influenced dance show from Visionair and regal elements reinterpreted in a modern style.

As per usual, prix-fixe dinner packages are on sale now while after-party and drink-only tickets will be exclusively sold the day of, on December 31st.
