The Balinese are one of over 300 ethnic groups in Indonesia. The majority of the population adheres to Agama Tirtha, which translates to religion of the holy water. This unique Hinduism is formed as a combination of existing local beliefs and Hindu influences from mainland Southeast Asia and South Asia.
Nyepi/Day of Silence
To mark the Balinese-Hindu New Year, the Balinese celebrate an annual ‘Day of Silence’ known as Nyepi. It is a wonderful time to visit the island, for guests who are interested in the unique traditions that underpin Balinese-Hinduism. A spectacular procedure of ceremonies, parades of great bamboo monsters, and fireworks occur on the Eve of Nyepi, followed by a day of total silence and seclusion when the Balinese will pray and meditate to cleanse the island of evil spirits. The next Nyepi Day will be 21 March 2015. In accordance with local regulations, all visitors must remain within the hotel property from midnight March 21st to early morning on March 22nd. All facilities at AYANA and RIMBA Jimbaran Bali will be open and operational including the Spas, Aquatonic Pool, Tennis Pavilion, golf putting course, swimming pools, Kids Clubs as well as restaurants (except Kisik Seafood Bar & Grill, Kubu Beach and Rock Bar which will be closed on March 21). The complimentary resort shuttle that operates between AYANA and RIMBA will also remain in operation on this day, to enable guests to use the facilities across the entire resort.
