Nyepi 23 March 2012

Balinese New Year, known as Nyepi or Day of Silence, will take place on Friday 23 March 2012, therefore our spa will stop operation on Thursday 22 March and be closed on Friday 23 March. Business as usual from Saturday 24 March onward.

Local custom requires that all people in Bali observe a day of silence from 6am on Friday 23 March 2012 until 6am Saturday 24 March 2012. Authorities require that all people in Bali stay indoors, make no noise and switch off all lights for the duration of this period. The Balinese Hindus consider Nyepi to be the most important day on the religious calendar and these prohibitions are taken very seriously.
