DO you dream of peace and quiet like no other, where the horizon stretches uninterrupted where blue skies embrace azure seas, so your entire being, your mind, soul and body can rest in blissful contemplation?
If so, it may be time to head to Bali for a silent retreat in the ‘Island of the Gods’ this March.
The month of March in Bali brings the mindful celebration Nyepi or New Year’s Day, according to the traditional Balinese lunar calendar (Saka).
This once-a-year cultural and religious occasion is marked by the solemn observation of a day of silence throughout the island. The self-enforced 24-hour programme of silence practised island-wide enables the Balinese to dedicate an entire day to introspection, meditation, fasting and spiritual cleansing.
Nyepi is one of the island’s most unique traditions, when staying in, resting and observing silence is enforced by law. No businesses are open and no transport is allowed on the roads (except for emergency services); even the airport shuts down for 24 hours. Observance of this sacred Hindu holiday gives Bali a break from 364 days of human activity, so the island can rest, replenish and recharge for the new year.
This extraordinary cultural and spiritual event can be experienced in the centre of it all with Sudamala Resorts, in the serene art-and-nature-filled surroundings of Sudamala Suites & Villas in Sanur, Bali.
At Sudamala Suites & Villas, Sanur, Bali, the two-night package includes suite accommodation, daily a la carte breakfasts for two, one-time satay dinner for two, welcome drinks and fruit basket upon arrival, and complimentary extra bed for one child under 12 years of age sharing a room with parents. Package starts from IDR3,200,000 net (approximately US$227 nett) for two nights.
Nyepi at Sudamala Resorts is exclusively available from 24 to 26 March 2020. Terms and conditions apply. Guests who wish to book their retreat in paradise may contact firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.sudamalaresorts.com. [traveltext.id]
