Dear Valued Guest,

Thank you for staying at The Nest Hotel Nusa Dua and we hope that you enjoy your stay with us.

In contrast to most cultures New Year celebrations which are characterised by parties of great gusto and revelry, Bali opens its Hindu New Year quite uniquely with a Day of Silence, or Nyepi. Following colourful ceremonies where effigies are cleansed in rivers or the ocean and a carnival to ward off evil spirits.

The day before this large Hindu festival called “Pengerupukan” day, large colourful sculptures of ‘Ogoh – Ogoh’ statue are paraded and then burned in the evening to drive away evil spirits.

Falling on the March 22nd , 2023, it is celebrated reverently indoors. Observed from 5am until 6am the next morning, Nyepi is a day to start afresh, contemplate and reassess one’s values in life. As a day of solemn reflection, Balinese people abstain from travelling (Amati Lelunganan), working (Amati Karya), no fire may be lit (Amati Geni) and all forms of entertainment (Amati Lelanguan) instead spending the day quietly at home engaging in minimal activity, fasting and meditation.

In order to respect the tradition, all outdoor lights shall be switched off for one full night of March 22nd , 2023, we kindly request you to keep the curtain closed tightly and you shall not be permitted to go out from hotel premises. The streets shall be closed to pedestrians and vehicles, and street lights are turned off for the evening in all Bali. Pecalang or traditional security men shall patrol the streets to ensure the prohibitions are being followed. Ngurah Rai International airport will be totally closed on March 22nd, 2023, there will be neither arrival nor departure in the airport on that day. All connecting airports around the world have been informed in advance about this.

Operational activities and services in the hotel will operate normally until 6pm. Please take note that all of TV channels shall be not on service starting March 22nd, 2023 and shall be back to normal broadcast on March 23rd, 2023. Wifi will work as per normal.
