What happening on the 31th March.............
Bali's Day of Silence "Nyepi" 2014
Saka New Year 1936 of Hindus
Dear Valued guests,
The Balinese Hindus do not celebrate the coming of the new year of Saka calendar with lavish party; they celebrate it with meditation instead. No activities are allowed to take place. These mandatory religious prohibitions include no pleasure (amati lelangon), no traffic (amati lelungan), no fire (amati geni) and no work (amati karya).
This year, Nyepi Day falls on 31 March 2014.
On Nyepi Day, we will not be able to accept any check-in nor check-out throughout the day.
We notice that you will be staying with us during Nyepi Day, kindly be informed of the below situations during Nyepi Day:
The silence begins at 0:00 am of 31 March 2014 and will go on until the next 24 hours
All shops are closed on Nyepi Day
Guests has to stay inside the resort area
When listening to the music or watching TV in the villa, keep the sound at minimum level
There will be no traffic on that day in the whole Bali island
Ngurah Rai airport will be totally closed on 31 March 2014, so there will be neither arrival nor departure in the airport on that day. All connecting airports around the globe have been informed in advance about this.
Across Bali, the activities are allowed only in emergency rooms and maternity section of hospitals and the arrival section of airport. Any emergencies are taken into consideration and tolerated. The whole island is in silence.
However, operational activities and services in the resort will operate normally.
One day before Nyepi, Pengerupukan Day, there will be a nearest Ogoh-Ogoh parade performed by our neighboring Nagi villagers in the evening. Ogoh-Ogoh is the manifestation of a person, an object or anything that disturbs human lives. This parade is an exorcism ceremony at the main village crossroad, the meeting place of the demons. Beforehand, there will be a Perang Api (fire war) to start the parade with.
Gusde and Wayan are as lovely as their property. The Villa itself is clean and roomy with a very comfy bed. The shower and tub are also great. Having a pool was very beautiful, tho we hardly used it as it really wasnt as hot as we expected. The rice fields around the property are visually very interesting.
I would say the down side is that the villa is a bit isolated. There is a village jsut up the road. Its intersting to see how the locals live but you cant walk to any restaurants or shops. Having a scooter is great so you are free to explore on your own without having to wait for a ride from Wayan or Gusde,tho they are happy to take you.
There is plenty of privacy, especially if you take bith floors like we did. Overall a great place if you dont want to be in the center of the traffic and madness of Ubud Center
Very nice villa...around the rice terrace, picturesque and nice people!
