3 days : this is the duration for Nurani and Bayu’s wedding according to the Balinese tradition, regardless of the accurate preparation before.
Apart from his responsibilities at the head of our Sinta restaurant, Bayu is also well known from everyone in the Puri Dajuma sphere as a joyful and committed person, so that many relatives, friends and guests were very happy to congratulate him and his charming wife Nurani on this romantic occasion.
A great party took place yesterday with all of them in a very warm and welcoming atmosphere, within the beautiful Balinese scenary which makes you feel as a Prince.
Puri Dajuma staff and management make again all their best wishes to this pleasant young couple.
On the picture, Bayu and Nurani surrounded by Bayu’s parents.

Our HR Manager Erly (photo) recently received from the provincial authorities in Negara an unusual award : our hotel has been selected as the best company in West Bali in terms of social protection of our staff including health and retirement plans. The prize also rewards the regularity in the payment of social charges. Since its opening in 2002, Dajuma has developped a social protection for its employees at a time where the government of Indonesia was not so advanced on this question. A private social plan was covering health issues as well as retirement plans. Now the situation is different: like in other countries, companies pay every month social charges in percentage of the salaries, in exchange of which the administration covers both health and retirement expenses

The New Year Eve at Dajuma did not escape the tradition this year: a wonderful set-up in the garden, 3 orchestras to help our guests discovering the beauty and the diversity of the traditional Balinese music, particularly this vibrating Jegog music generated from bamboos and originated from a small village of West Bali close to the hotel. A plus this year: the second orchestra was composed of young musicians, most of them being the children of our employees, not even born when the hotel was created 12 years ago. A great moment for them and for us!
The orchestras accompanied many dances performed by dancers of the school of dance of Pekutatan under the magistral guidance of our dear Guru Agung. A fascinating show given by gracious dancers richly dressed!
Finally our guests appreciated a delicious dinner with, among many other dishes, the famous Babi Guling, monument of the Balinese cuisine. On the stroke of midnight, fireworks were launched from the beach for the greatest pleasure of our guests’ children.

2014 has been rich for Dajuma from many points of view: completion of the renovation program of our cottages, 4 stars ranking from the Indonesian Association of Hoteliers, nomination to the Green Tec Awards and the World Luxury Hotels Awards and most importantly, a lot of positive feed-backs from our guests.
We selected one  which is for all Dajuma staff very meaningful insofar as it  translates perfectly the spirit of our hotel: authenticity, serenity and harmony.
…only here a true, simple and at the same time rich spirit of Bali can be found !
« We couldn’t have chosen better place for our honeymoon !
Everything was perfect and made our moods great every single day.
FOR SURE, we are  going to come back here, as only here a true, simple and at the same time rich spirit of Bali can be found !
Thank you all Balinese People for sharing this true paradise with us ! »

This year is particular in Bali as the the celebrations of Galungan and Christmas fall almost at the same time : 17th and 25th.
Perhaps a sign that religions are sometimes converging. In any case it makes sense for Bali to celebrate Christmas as there are a lot of christians around the island.
For the night of Christmas, Dajuma will drive its guests willing to participate in the Christmas mass to the nearby christian church. Then after this moment of praying, they will be offered a delicious dinner (Peking Duck!) with a live orchestra.
Merry Christmas!

A special célébration time began already in Bali, culminating with Galungan Day, this Wednesday, December 17th.
Galungan marks the beginning of the most important recurring cérémonies according to the ’210 day Balinese Pawukon Calendar’. The festival symbolizes the victory of good (Dharma)over evil (Adharma) and encourages the Balinese to show their gratitude to the Creator.
The spirits of deceased relatives who have been cremated return to visit their former homes, and the current inhabitants have a responsability to be hospitable through prayers and offerings.
6 days before is the day to purify, 3 and 2 days before  are dedicated to méditation, then the day before people erect the ‘penjor’ in front of each house.
Offerings and praying are made to God and holy ancestral spirits who come down to earth. The Balinese usually return to their family hometowns and villages to reunite with their families and elders.
Here on the picture the colorful holy decoration used for the celebration of Galungan: they are made of palm tree leaves and orn the streets in the villages as well as the houses.

Over 400 trail bikers from Bali, Java and Sumatra gave themselves appointment in Pekutatan this week to share their passion on the trails of West Bali. The route chosen by the organizers was particularly ambitious: Starting point on the Pekutatan beach and finish the evening in Bedugul near the famous temple of Ulu Danu. And return the next day to Pekutatan by different paths. A unique opportunity for them to discover the natural treasures of West Bali. Many bikers have chosen Dajuma as a resting place, creating some animation in the hotel with parking invaded by the latest models of trail bikes.

The beach of Dajuma is the place of a continuous show: families practicing their ancestral “mandi mandi”, a sea bath in the natural volcano holes, proud fishermen leaving every afternoon for their night fishing campaign, and a lot of birds; seagulls, magnificent blue kingfishers and more rarely some grey herons. This is what happened yesterday with these 3 majestuous birds, the largest ones in the region going from Sumatra to Bali, in search of some fish on  the  cape where  Dajuma was built. The « Great-billed Heron » likes mangrove, beaches and costal reef of the small islands : a resident throughout the Greater Sundas.

Though we wish to preserve Bali’s beautiful countryside by reducing Dajuma’s environmental footprint, we are concerned by Bali’s needs in terms of our Corporate Social Responsibility.

On this topic, one major priority remains allowing children to go to school. As such, our team chose supporting Bali Children Foundation: www.balichildrenfoundation.org. Its main objective is to provide community education in remote areas of Bali.

Since July 2014, the BCF has increased their number of scholarships to cover the education of approximately 1000 students living across 30 communities and 2 children’s homes.

For the second time, this dynamic foundation has been organizing  the Go Study Auction on October 28th. The previous edition in April helped supporting 5 communities and 1 children’s home in West Bali.

Our team is very excited to support this great initiative for education of underprivileged children.
