Every week on Saturday, the children with their teachers come to the beach in front of Dajuma to do exercise.
The pupils come from the kindergarden to the elementary school in Pekutatan called TK Harapan 2. They choose this place because of the nice view and the proximity of the school.

Introduced in Bali by Madurese migrants to celebrate the end of the rice harvest, Makepung is the name of a major grand prix in West Bali, which features racing buffalo races. The competitive races take place on erratic tracks a few kilometers from Dajuma, beginning early in the morning, before the heat makes the big bulls sluggish. Hundreds of pairs of buffaloes are teamed up together with their jockeys riding the traditional wooden ploughs that are slightly modified for the competition. 

The racer buffaloes, called kerbau pepadu, compete in various open race circuits around the district of Melaya, leading up to the finals, or what has come to be known as the Jembrana Regent’s Cup, and the Governor’s Cup, held annually.

Here is the program for the next weeks until the finals. A fascinating show not to missed!

Not easy to combine a sandy beach and a beautiful green garden ! Why ? Because the salty water from the sea is really the number 1 enemy of any kind of trees (with some exceptions !), flowers and other green plants.
However, this is what happened in Dajuma thanks to the outstanding skills of our gardeners team headed by Anom.
As shown on the picture, the garden is coexisting pacifically with the sea even during high tides when the waves come licking the edge of the garden. The result is a unique scenery for our guests who can relax in the soft shadow of our « ketatang » trees, have a massage in the Gazebo or dine with the song of the sea. Not to be missed !

In West Bali, one place becomes attractive for tourism: the Tanteri ceramic factory, which is also our main chinaware supplier.
It is located in Pejaten, between Tabanan and Tanah Lot temple.
I Made Tanteri has been the head of the village and a pioneer for ceramic development in the years 1980’s.
He get help from some westerners to improve the production, so that the factory is now famed for its fine artcrafts ceramics.
We can see there the women at work, and a museum was opened in 2011, with temporary exhibitions.
Oka Mahendra is Mr Tanteri son, many thanks to him for displaying a lot of beautiful handicraft in this place.

Because of its location close to the famous surfing spot of Medewi, Puri Dajuma is the ideal place where to stay and practice this demanding sport.
Our beach manager Jupry was born in Pekutatan and practice surfing since he was a child. He is always pleased to teach our guest how to surf the waves just in front of the hotel. But before that, it is necessary to understand the gestures for keeping equilibrium on the board and the best way to achieve that is, by all means, to simply do it in the garden! This is what Jupry is doing on the picture under the attentive look of our guest.

Saturday May 9th, 2015 was a special day in Bali: under the leadership of the army, thousands of Balinese villagers went around all Bali beaches to clean them up. An exceptional moment where people of all ages collected plastic bags and other garbage brought by the sea and the rivers.
The protection of  its exceptional environment is a real concern in Bali. Millions of tourists visit g the island every year and the way the waste is managed by the authorities is still far from what is needed. Among the necessary measures to be taken, the idea to educate and train the villagers is definitely a good one.
This is what Dajuma is doing in various areas: recycling of glass bottles, compost which can eliminate up to  80% of the domestic waste, cleaning of the beach and the surroundings of the hotel every 2 weeks by our own staff, no effluents to the sea, etc.
Hopefully this initiative will be continued in the coming years !
