On Nyepi day, Bali seems to be a ghost town, activities are stopped to respect the Day of Silence. These luxury resorts offer ‘Getaways’.
Nyepi, or the Day of Silence, is a day in the Balinese calendar reserved for self-reflection and meditation. Nyepi day purposes the people and nature return to pure and holy circumstances.
