Enjoy Serenity in The Midst Of Tranquil Villa During Nyepi

Nyepi or known as Day of Silence which marks Balinese New Year. It is celebrate every Isakawarsa or Saka new year. The island would fall silent for 24 hours every year. There will be no flights, activites, fire nor electricity. The Balinese honor the new year with stillness and silent.

They believed by doing it so, it would avoid from harm when demons and gods fly overhead due to they think that it is uninhabited.

However, as outdoor activities and other activities related to cook are limited, you can do below activities while you are stay at your Villa. Here’s we curate some of activities to do if you happen in Bali during Nyepi:

1. Yoga and Meditation

It is believed that Yoga and meditation are good to decrease stress and anxiety. While the phone is not connected to the internet, perhaps it is good to get away from phone for awhile and do meditation and/or yoga in the midst of tranquil and beauty villa.

2. Join Offering Making Class

Canang Sari is an offering that made by Hindu Balinese to thank the Sang Hyang Widhi Wasa in praise and prayer on daily basis. It is common to see in Hindu temple, small shrines at house or even on the ground.

You may sometimes wondering how the Balinese create their offering and what should to be included and what shouldn’t. If you happen to be our guest during Nyepi, you might as well want to try create Canang Sari. Besides to enhance your experience, you will get to know the meaning of Canang Sari more in depth.

For more info, kindly contact your butler.

3. Spa and Massage

As all the outdoor activities are prohibited, perhaps it is a good day for sit back and relaxing at your Villa. You may want to order our Balinese Massage or doing bath ritual in your room while read your favorite book.

Visit our Ruby Spa for more info.

Awareness of Dental Health for Children

It brought our attention that the awareness of dental health in Indonesia is still low compared to other countries.

As a part of this year’s CSR program with the concept of “We grow together with local community”, we held  the dental event for children at Widya Puspita Kindergarten, on Friday, 27 September 2019 in order to increase the awareness of dental health from early age.

Supported by other establishments, Mandiri Health Care and Bhakti Vedanta Medical, and Dr. Gede Agung Wirakrama or Dr. Doni, we educated kindergarten students to understand the importance of daily dental care. 63 students who attended this event received a pack of tooth brush, paste, and a small toy (to make them happy and funJ) before Dr. Doni started introducing how and why brushing tooth is important, and gave a practice to the students on brushing the teeth correctly.

Before ending the dental class, students had quiz from Saviestri-Human Resources Manager of Ametis Villa Bali, to test their understanding. Winners received tumblr as gift. As one of our luxury lifestyle private villa in Canggu, Ametis Villa Bali will bring more positive ambiance and influence people to improve better future. Start from small thing to the big things in the future.
