Christmas is known to be a perfect session for sharing. Therefore, last Christmas, we invited the children from Widya Asih Melaya Orphanage to entertain our guests who joined the Christmas Day Dinner at Pasir Putih Beach Club. During their performance, they delivered a beautiful rendition of Christmas and Balinese songs accompanied by traditional Balinese music which brought delight to the guests.
After the performance, we enjoyed Christmas dinner together and handed over a little donation to assist the orphanage’s daily operational, as well as some goods and stationeries for the children, many of whom are students at the local schools.
Widya Asih Foundation is a charity foundation aimed to take care of these less fortunate children. The foundation has several orphanages in Bali. The one in Melaya that we visited is their biggest orphanage. As of now, the orphanage takes care of a total of 74 children. With the joint effort of the Foundation, caregivers and sponsors, they have been able to give all children access to education as well as life skills, which will be beneficial for their future lives.
Nyepi is the Balinese "Day of Silence", which is commemorated as the New Year celebration according to Saka Calendar. It is a Hindu holiday that is mainly celebrated in Bali, Indonesia. Unlike the grand New Year celebrations of other calendars, Nyepi is celebrated in complete silence, with fasting and meditation.
The island will observe Nyepi from 6am on 17th March until 6am on the following day. Local regulations concerning Nyepi require no lighting of fires (and lights must be kept low), no working, no entertainment or pleasure, and no travelling. All of this will make the island appear to be deserted.
Although Nyepi is primarily a Hindu holiday, non-Hindu residents and tourists are not exempt from the restrictions. Activities may be held with minimal noise within the hotels’ premises but it is strictly forbidden for the guests to stray outside onto the beaches or streets. The only airport in Bali remains closed for the entire day. The only exceptions granted are for emergency vehicles responding to life-threatening conditions and women about to give birth.
On the day after Nyepi, known as Ngembak Geni, social activity picks up again quickly, as families and friends gather to ask forgiveness from one another, and to perform certain religious rituals together.
Destination - Pemuteran Coastal Village
Pemuteran is located in a quiet area in Northwest Bali. A small laid-back coastal village, Pemuteran is known for its charm and traditional culture. A visit to Pemuteran Village promises you with the opportunity to see some of Bali’s most important temples and friendly helpful people who will welcome you into their community. Nestled at the base of Bali’s magic mountains, bordering the calm holy sea, Pemuteran is the perfect place for enjoying spectacular natural beauty. Marvel at the beautiful vistas over the sparkling sea against the backdrop of East Java’s volcanoes reaching towards the sky.
Pemuteran presents another side of Bali, which is unspoiled by mass tourism. Nonetheless, this area has many things to offer in terms of accommodation and dining options. Here you can find not only low budget homestays, but also private villas and beachfront luxury resorts, such as Menjangan Dynasty Resort.
Pemuteran has the largest area of shallow reefs in Bali. With Menjangan Island within close proximity and the award-winning Biorock project, Pemuteran Bay is probably the best spot for diving and snorkelling in Bali.
Make Menjangan Dynasty Resort, located 10 minutes’ drive from Pemuteran, your base for exploring this beautiful area.
