Nyepi is a very interesting time of the year in Bali because leading up to this special event date we can witness a plethora of Balinese culture being on full display. For most people, it’s the day full of self-reflection and self-restraint also to follow Catur Brata Penyepian (abstinence that must be followed when Nyepi) include no pleasure (amati lelangon), no traffic (amati lelungan), no fire (amati geni) and no work (amati karya).
Unlike Balinese Hindu who usually fast during this day, tourists can still do things normally as long as they don’t leave the hotel premises. This is the perfect time to see how it actually goes down in Bali as the island “turns off its switch” for 24 hours.
This year to commemorate the Day of Silence (Nyepi) or the new year according to Balinese calendar which will fall on March 22nd 2023, HARRIS Hotel Seminyak came up with an amazing offer inclusive of daily breakfast for 2 persons and also one-time lunch also dinner on Nyepi Day.
“The Balinese Hindus do not celebrate the coming of the new year of Saka calendar with lavish party; they celebrate it with meditation instead. With this opportunity we would like to invite you to experience your own spiritual moment in hope of balance, harmony, prosperity and peace, also taking part in the Balinese culture and religion event,“ Said Nyoman Wirayasa, General Manager of HARRIS Hotel Seminyak, Tuesday (7/1).
