Silence Day in Bali
This year the Balinese will be celebrating Nyepi on Saturday, 21 March 2015
The first day of the Caka New Year, also known as Hari Raya Nyepi, is a Day of Complete Silence in Bali. The whole island will be void of people on the street (since it is mandatory for everyone to stay indoors) and there shall be no noise, no lights and no activities in whatsoever form. The whole island of Bali shall appear deserted.
The evening before Nyepi on the 20th of March, traditionally we will make an Ogoh Ogoh (a paper mache statue) in the form of an evil spirit and parade it around the hotel area, just as the Balinese do in their villages to chase away evil spirits from their houses. After the parade the Ogoh Ogoh will be burned at the beach.
We ask as many hotel guests as possible to dress up in a sarong and head band and help us carry the Ogoh Ogoh.
Apart from being a lot of fun, it’s a great photo opportunity and a chance be part of the Nyepi tradition. If you are with us at that time we invite you to join us outside the Kertagosa Ballroom at 5pm, where we will dress you up, give you a traditional blessing, an arak to keep the other spirits from harming you and a musical instrument to make as much noise as possible.
However, operational activities and services in the resort will operate normally.
