Experience the Ultimate Tranquillity In Bali’s Sacred New Year

March 1, 2017 Resort News No Comments Email Email

Retreat to a perfect Balinese cliff-edge hideaway with breathtaking ocean views. Celebrating Bali’s sacred Nyepi New Year festival in its signature style, Banyan Tree Ungasan offers an indulgent villa package and dining experience for the ultimate New Year stay.

Nyepi New Year is one of the most important holidays in the Balinese Hindu calendar. Observed with a day of silence, prayer and meditation, noise and activity are kept to a minimum throughout the island to promote inner reflection. The spiritual belief is that evil spirits descend to Bali and seeing that it is quiet and uninhabited, leave the island alone for another year. On the eve of Nyepi, large colorful sculptures of ‘ogoh-ogoh’ monsters are paraded and then burned in the evening to drive away evil spirits and to symbolise self-purification.

Banyan Tree Ungasan’s Nyepi New Year Special villa package includes a luxurious villa stay with indulgent experiences from 27 to 29 March 2017. Rates for the Nyepi New Year Special villa package starts from US$641++ per night and is inclusive of daily breakfast, Nyepi lunch and dinner for two persons at Bambu Restaurant. In addition, receive up to 20% off for bookings made 30 days in advance.

A special Balinese Nyepi New Year Day lunch and dinner at Bambu Restaurant is available on Tuesday 28 March 2017. The lavish dining feast features both Indonesian and Western creations. Guests can savour this special occasion with rich cultural entertainment of a Balinese dance performance. The Balinese Nyepi New Year’s Eve lunch is priced at USD 34++ per person while the Balinese Nyepi New Year Dinner is priced at USD 49++ per person. For an unforgettable authentic culinary journey, Ju-Ma-Na offers a four-course Moonlight Set Menu Dinner. Let the creations of our talented Chef de Cuisine Alit, tantalise your taste buds under the full moon.
