Nyepi 2020: Where To Stay During Bali’s Day of Silence
Bali’s ‘New Year’ is quite different from that of a Western or even of Chinese culture; rather than a day of celebration, parties, meeting family and feasting, Bali’s new year’s day is quite opposite. That’s right, Hari Raya Nyepi is a full-day of silence; 24 hours in which the island’s inhabitants must stay indoors for meditation, introspection and for some, fasting.

Whilst local Balinese Hindus stay home to follow their religious rites and obligations, other residents and tourists find this time perfect for a staycation. Hotels and resorts around the island offer special packages for stays during this period, as Bali comes to a complete standstill.

With Nyepi itself happening on 25 March 2020, Nyepi hotel packages run from the 24th-26th March 2020 (3 Days, 2 Nights). Choose by area:
Closing access to vehicles early in the afternoon (around 2pm), Jalan Legian transforms into a fairground-like display as banjars (village communities) display their Ogoh–Ogoh monster effigies, which later are carried during the Ngrupuk Parade, starting at 7pm to Jalan Raya Kuta . Those staying in the area can enjoy the parade the day before Nyepi (Tuesday, 24th March 2020), as well as a display of the Melasti cleansing ceremony on Raya Kuta.
