Every year the Balinese community commemorates what is known as Nyepi, or the Day of Silence, a 24-hour period reserved for a quiet self-reflection that marks the last day of the Balinese Hindu lunar new year. While work, travel, and other non-spiritual activities are not allowed to take place on this day, the day—a public holiday in Indonesia—presents tourists and outsiders in Bali with the opportunity to experience the island at its quietest and perhaps most peaceful. Here are five hotels for your silent escape this year.
