Keeping Quiet in Kuta

March 8, 2017 Edward Speirs

It isn’t often that Bali’s classic tourism hotspot simmers down to silence. Kuta has long been known for its lively lifestyle and late night revelries but on one day of the year, the area finds itself enjoying a moment of blissful peace.

On Hari Raya Nyepi – Bali’s new year’s day that this year falls on 28 March, 2017 – the whole island will be in total silence and darkness. So, to capture this rare moment, Four Points by Sheraton is offering a special Nyepi stay package so that you can experience a specially quiet Kuta.

As Nyepi requires all on the island to stay indoors for 24 hours, Four Points Kuta is offering a two-night stay in their Deluxe Lagoon View from the 27th-29th of March 2017. Of course, everything is catered for as this package includes daily buffet breakfast for 2 people, buffet dinner on Nyepi Day (for 2). You’ll also be given a free popsicle on arrival!

Perhaps the best thing about staying in Four Points Kuta is how close it is to Kuta’s ‘Ngrupuk’ ceremony, part of the pre-Nyepi rituals that sees giant monster effigies (or ogoh-ogoh) paraded through the streets. The demonic figures are lined up on Jalan Legian (road) from 4pm the day before Nyepi, before being carried to the temple at Jalan Raya Kuta. It’s a lively display, and since the roads are closed it’s best to be walking distance to catch it.

Of course, on Nyepi itself you’ll have to stay in the property. In Four Points you’ll have everything you need to take it easy for the day, from relaxing in one of their three pools, box office movie showings, hotel activities and of course complimentary WiFi throughout the hotel. If you’re bringing the kids, the Four Points Kids Club is free to access and will have a range of activities to keep the young ones entertained.

The price of this special Nyepi package is priced at IDR 1,900,000++ , inclusive of two-night stay in Deluxe Lagoon View, popsicle on arrival, 2x daily buffet breakfast for 2, 1x buffet dinner for 2.  You can also upgrade to their Deluxe Lagoon Access for IDR 300,000++.
