Sheraton Bali Kuta Resort
Nyepi / Day of Silence Information: March 9, 2016
Nyepi, known as the “Day of Silence,” marks the celebration of the Balinese New Year in the Hindu Lunar calendar. A spectacular procedure of ceremonies, parades of great bamboo monsters occur on the Eve of Nyepi, followed by a day of total silence and seclusion. The community strongly believes that if the island is silent and dark, the bad spirits will leave and the new year will start in peace. During Nyepi, from 6am until 6am the next day, the island stops. Nobody is allowed in the streets, use of electricity is restricted, and the international airport is closed.
In 2016, Nyepi will fall on March 9. Please note that check-in and check-out will not be possible on Nyepi Day, and Ngurah Rai International Airport (DPS) will be closed. Some of the resort facilities will operate as usual; however, there will be no transportation services to and from the resort, and televisions will not be available. Lights will be dimmed inside and there will be no outdoor lighting. The pool and other hotel facilities will still be accessible.
We kindly invite you to respect this sacred day and observe these restrictions. Normal activity in Bali will resume at 6am on March 10, 2016.
Alcoholic beverage service is restricted to those 18 years or older with valid identification.
