Nyepi, Bali’s Day of Silence, will this year be on the 17th March 2018. It is Bali’s Çaka calendar’s new year and comes as a time of introspection and recollection. That’s why, for those looking to spend Nyepi in Nusa Dua, The Westin Resort Nusa Dua has prepared a thoughtful Nyepi experience focusing on personal renewal.

For 24 hours Bali will be at a total standstill, from sunrise on the 17th to sunrise on the 18th no one may work, go to public areas or walk the streets, make noise and have any lights on (at night). It is truly one of the most unique events in the world. Of course, this means having to stay indoors from the 16th-18th of March 2018 and that’s why planning a staycation is a great idea.

The Westin Resort Nusa Dua, Bali presents their exclusive Nyepi package for guests looking to use this time to getaway and truly reset in luxurious surroundings. Stay for two nights at their Deluxe Garden Room and enjoy a daily SuperFoodsRx breakfast, for two adults and two children, inline with The Westin’s wellness focus, as well as a buffet dinner on Nyepi Day (17th) for two adults and two children. With the Westin Family Kids Club, young families will have plenty to do!

Prices start from IDR 1,800,000++/per room/per night (Deluxe Garden Room).
