Several of the award recipients at this year's ceremonies garnered multiple awards: Sentosa Private Villas and Spa won for the categories Best Villa and Best Newcomer (person or business); while Como Shambhala Estate won for the categories of Resort of the Year and Best Ubud Hotel.

Similarly, Ku De Ta won three awards as Bar of the Year, Best Sunset Venue and Best Annual Event (Ku De Ta Summer Parties). Body & Soul also collected three awards for Best Retail Space, Yak Woman of the Year and Ad Campaign of the Year.

Other winners were Ian Macaulay for Yak Man of the Year, Ritz Carlton Bali Resort & Spa for Best Spa, Stevie G as DJ of the Year, Oka d'Putra as Fashion Designer of the Year, Chris Miller from Como Shambhala Estate/Uma Ubud as Chef of the Year, Linda Buller – BARC (Dog Rehabilitation) for Best Community Services Award, Naughty Nuri's as Best Ubud Bar, Ubud Botanical Gardens as Best Ubud Attraction, and the Congeniality Award went to Goestamar Ardibrata of Bali & Beyond.

One of the highlights of the Yak Awards was the YAK ice bar in the Sentosa Spa, where vodka infused shots were funneled directly into guests' mouths. Nearby dozens of iced oysters were being served by Marinelli Shellfish & Co. Oyster Bar.

The evening also included performances by Japanese saxophonist Chika and the As One Band, Arash Atman (Electronic Soundscapes Records(Greece), David Dobson (Hikari / NZ), and DJ Stevie G (G-Force). An unplugged performance with DJ SuperCozi on vocals with material from her latest CD, "Dari Bali," treated guests to a one-of-a-kind Cozi show, backed by soloist Marilyn, Gus on keyboards and John on lead guitar.

Special guests from Papua provided a memorable performance of live tribal music. A laser performance by Boots with visuals by VJ Randoman rounded out the exciting entertainment of the awards party.
