“A NUNBER OF HOTELS ARE OFFERING SPECIAL NYEPI CELEBRATION PACKAGES FOR THOSE WHO WANT TO SPEND A QUIET DAY IN A HOTEL”
Balinese Hindus will observe Nyepi (Day of Silent) in March 21, making The Caka New Year in accordance with Balinese lunar calendar.
For 24 hours, from 6 am on March 21 until 6 am on March 22, Bali will be quiet, dark and peaceful to allow the Balinese Hindus to perform Catur Brata Penyepina — the four abstinences, comprising amati geni (abstaining from lighting fire or turning on lights); amati karya (abstaining from work); amati lelungan (abstaining from travelling outside one’s home); and amati lelanguan (abstaining from leisure activities).
The whole island will turn into a quiet and peaceful sanctuary at Nyepi. However, hotels, villas, and other tourism accommodations are allowed to operate limited, quiet service. A number of hotels are offering special Nyepi celebration packages for those who want to spend a quiet day in a hotel.
The Westin Resort Nusa Dua Bali is giving families the chance to spend quality time together during Nyepi, promising absolute relaxation. Fun activities have been prepared for the children to keep them fully occupied. Meanwhile, parents can take pleasure in some well-deserved time by indulging in personal rejuvenation at Heavenly Spa or making the most of free access to Westin WORKOUT fitness studio.
One of the highlights of this weekend is the complementary Prego Family Brunch on Sunday, March 22, for two adults and two children, featuring an extensive buffet of authentic italian cuisine and entertainment for everyone to enjoy.
