Hotels offer temporary sanctuaries during Nyepi

Tourists will likely find hotels in Bali to be temporary sanctuaries during the Nyepi celebrations of March 7.

Sugeng Purnomo of the Bali Association of Hotels' Public Relation Officers said tourists would go to hotels for activities and electricity, both off-limits to Balinese Hindus on the day.

He said many non-Hindu residents of the island also spent Nyepi holiday in hotels, booking rooms for up to two consecutive nights.

"In past years, this has increased the hotels' occupancy rates during the days prior to and after Nyepi," said Purnomo, also the public relations manager of Nusa Dua's Laguna resort and spa.

He said the increase in occupancy would likely take place in places like Sanur and Nusa Dua, resort areas full of four- and five-star hotels.
