Celebrate the Uniqueness of Bali through the National Day of Silence

Kuta, 5 February 2016 – Indulge that one day of serenity in the whole year as the entire Bali switches off in welcoming the moment of Nyepi (National Day of Silence). It is the moment unlike in any other parts of the world – which is truly magical and spiritual.

“Balinese Hindu’s New Year is celebrated every Saka New Year according to Balinese calendar. This year it falls on 9 March 2016 and the Hindu will spend the day in silence, fasting and doing meditation. It is when Bali goes into retreat for full 24 hours and no flights are allowed going in and out of the island. Shops will remain closed, streets will be deserted and lights will remain off,” said I Nyoman Wirayasa, General Manager of HARRIS Hotel & Residences.

Days leading up to Nyepi are usually filled with cultural activities like for instance Ogoh-ogoh parade. Ogoh-ogoh is believed as the demon in Balinese Hindu wayang legend. The statue is made of bamboo and styrofoam. It represents viciousness, destruction and bad elements.

“The parade usually happens around the village, street and public areas. At the end, ogoh-ogoh will be burned – or as oftentimes called Ngrupuk.”

In making sure that our guests will have a pleasant experience in Bali, HARRIS Hotel & Residences Sunset Road has prepared a 3D2N staycation only for IDR 1,950,000nett, inclusive of breakfast for 2 persons, a choice of lunch / dinner buffet on Nyepi for 2 persons, as well as special activities such as: cooking class, fun games, karaoke, box office channels and many more.
