March 31tst NYEPI
The Hindu Day of Silence or the Hindu New Year in the Balinese Saka calendar. The largest celebrations are held in Bali as well as in Balinese Hindu communities around Indonesia. On New Year's Eve the villages are cleaned, food is cooked for 2 days and in the evening as much noise is made as possible to scare away the devils. On the following day, Hindus do not leave their homes, cook or engage in any activity. Streets are deserted, and tourists are not allowed to leave hotel complexes. No arrival nor departure flights at Ngurah Rai Airport.
In accordance with local regulations, all visitors must remain within the property's premises during Nyepi, from midnight of one day before to early morning on the next day. Check-in and check-out will not be possible. Only essential lights may be used in the villas while the Balinese will have no light for all night. Everything stops for a day, the day of total peace and quiet.

May 21st GALUNGAN
One of Bali's major festivals, celebrates the return of Balinese gods and deified ancestors to Bali. For ten days, Balinese families will entertain and welcome with prayers and offerings, along with ceremonies to cleanse and balance the inner and outer energy on the island. Galungan lasts for 10 days and features, among other things, barongs dancing from temple to temple in each village. The festival symbolizes the victory of good over evil. The origins of Galungan are still a mystery, but essentially this is the beginning of the week in which the gods and ancestors descend to earth…and good triumphs over evil.
   
May 31st KUNINGAN
This festival is held ten days after the Galungan Festival. On this day, special offerings made of yellow rice and special dishes are offered, while every family compound and temple looks amazing with ornaments. Believed to be the day when ancestral holy spirits and Deities ascend back to heaven.
