Om swastiastu. Welcome to our March issue!
March is a great time to visit Bali for the Nyepi celebrations that mark the start of the Hindu New Year. Unlike the boisterous end-of-year New Year celebrations, the Balinese Hindu New Year is commemorated with complete silence for 24 hours – the entire island goes into total shut down mode and everyone is prohibited from going outside, making loud noises, travelling and even working. If you’re com- ing to Bali to experience this globally unique Balinese ceremony, then be sure to catch the Ogoh-Ogoh Parade that takes place on the eve of Nyepi.
Our other favourite thing about Nyepi is the amazing hotel deals that are available during this time. Visit our Hot Deals pages for 3days/2nights deals at your favourite hotels and villas that would include relaxing stays in some of the best rooms in town, breakfast, lunch and dinner, F&B and Spa discounts as well as free use of the hotel’s amenities. Turn over a few pages and check out everything is on sales and affordable prices on the island this month in our Hot Deals.
