Embrace Freedom: Getaway To Lombok During Nyepi!

As the island of Bali prepares for its annual observance of Nyepi, or Day of Silence, travellers and residents alike find themselves facing a unique challenge. Nyepi, a sacred day of self-reflection and meditation for the Balinese, imposes strict restrictions on daily activities, making it a less- than-ideal time for leisurely pursuits. However, there’s a perfect solution for those seeking to escape the silence without having to go too far: Lombok.

What is Nyepi?

Nyepi, falling on March 11-12 in 2024, is a deeply revered tradition in Bali. It is a day when the normally bustling island comes to a standstill as locals observe a day of silence, fasting, and meditation. During this time, all activities that might disrupt reflection are prohibited, including work, travel, entertainment, and even internet access. The streets and beaches of Bali are deserted, with enforcement by local guards known as Pecalang ensuring compliance.


Escape to Lombok

For those seeking to avoid the restrictions of Nyepi while still indulging in the adventure and experiences of Indonesia, Lombok presents an ideal alternative. Just a short 45-minute flight from Bali, Lombok offers a vibrant escape from the silence of Nyepi. Unlike Bali, Lombok remains open and alive during this period, allowing visitors to explore its pristine beaches, lush landscapes, and vibrant culture without interruption.


Experience Selong Selo

Boasting 35 luxurious villas, Selong Selo offers world-class amenities, including the renowned Aura Lounge & Bar, serving up delectable cuisine with the some of the nest views in Indonesia.


Unwind and Explore

Plan Your Nyepi Escape

With Bali Airport closed on March 11th, it’s essential to plan your Nyepi escape in advance. Book your departure for at least a day before Nyepi, with recommended dates being the 8th or 9th of March. Make the most of your getaway to Lombok by immersing yourself in the island’s natural beauty, vibrant culture, and warm hospitality.
