Seven Best Places To Stay During Nyepi Day In Bali

March 16, 2015

This weekend Balinese Hindus are celebrating the New Year based on the traditional Saka Calendar. Unlike many other New Year’s celebrations, the adherents celebrate the New Year with the ritual of a day of silence, or famously known as Nyepi Day. It’s the day when everything is completely standstill. All roads, airports, stores, and restaurants are closed, and no travel is allowed. When the night comes, no one allowed to put on lights, or to do activities that can produce sounds and everything will have to remain silent. It’s the silence day.

While our Hindu brothers do some Nyepi rituals - Amati Geni (no fire or light), Amati Karya (no working), Amati Lelunganan (no traveling), and Amati Lelanguan (Fasting), those who do happen to travel in Bali during Nyepi Day and stay somewhere private, be sure to stock up on necessities and make sure to respect the rules. Alternatively, you can choose to stay in a hotel or a villa that offers convenience Nyepi Packages with good prices. The rules are usually less strict inside the hotels / villas premises.

 

Bali Plus Magazine chooses seven recommended hotels offering great Nyepi Deals (3D2N) for you. The celebration is just within next few days, so better you book your room right now before the rooms are full!
