Nyepi, or Bali day of silence, falls on march 28th this year. This unique day is the day that everyone in Bali is prohibited from leaving their family homes, hotels or accommodation. The reason for this is to create the illusion of an empty island to convince the bad spirits said to visit on this day that there is no reason to make trouble.
Although most Balinese people stay within their family compounds for the day, tourists, ex-pats and residents of other religions often choose to stay in a resort or hotel where they can still use the facilities, order food and enjoy a short holiday. We’ve chosen some of the best Nyepi deals in case you want to have a day of silence without too much silence…
