Where can I celebrate Easter in Bali?

Reading time: 2 minutes

If you’re planning a trip to the beautiful Bali over Easter time, you may be wondering what there is to do on the island in the way of the Easter spirit.

Fortunately, we’ve scouted out a few places where you can add a little Easter festivity to your blissful beach holiday.

Easter in Bali

Are you heading to Bali over Easter this year?
Indonesia’s diverse range of beliefs across the population means that a number of different events are celebrated throughout the country. Even though the vast majority of the island of Bali identify as Hindus (as of the last census), this doesn’t mean that you won’t find any Easter-related events here. In fact, Ascension of the Prophet Day, Easter Friday and Easter Sunday are all public holidays in Indonesia – a nod to the country’s diverse religious groups.

You’re more likely to find Easter celebrations happening in family homes, Christian churches and resorts catered to Western tourists. As Bali has one of the higher Christian populations in Indonesia, you may even hear the words ‘selamat hari paskah’, or ‘happy Easter’, exchanged amongst locals.

What’s open?

While a number of banks and government offices may close over the Easter public holidays, for many local shops it will be business as usual. Closing over the Easter weekend tends to be discretionary.

KU DE TA, Seminyak

This stunning beachfront venue is known for its fabulous seasonal events, and in the past has hosted an Easter bonanza with activities for the whole family to enjoy. If you have little ones in tow, sit down to a delicious meal overlooking the ocean while the kids are entertained by arts and crafts, performers and face painting. And how can we forget the Easter colouring in competition?*

St Regis, Nusa Dua

This luxury resort is pulling out all the stops for a sophisticated Easter. Their champagne Easter Brunch is the perfect way to start the day, while the Easter Degustation Dinner at the exclusive Kayuputi restaurant features Wagyu beef and a special surprise dessert.

If that isn’t enough, you can always arrange a luxe St Regis Easter hamper, delivered to your room, or pop by for the Easter Afternoon Tea. Hosted at the King Cole Bar, you can look forward to a refined dining experience with Easter-themed treats.

Westin Resort, Nusa Dua

Another resort that is known for offering guests a little Easter magic is the Westin Resort in Nusa Dua. Previous years have seen the hotel put together festive activities such as an Easter egg hunt for the kids, as well as egg painting. Keep an eye out for Easter family brunch at the resort’s Italian restaurant, Prego.
