The sky was the limit when Bali’s first Ah Yat Abalone Seafood Restaurant tossed a plate of food into the air, as part of the ancient ritual of Yee Sang plate tossing to welcome the Chinese New Year. The celebration was a particularly auspicious occasion for Ah Yat, following its launch in Bali last November at RIMBA Jimbaran Bali, the new sister hotel of the award-winning AYANA Resort and Spa.
