Dajuma is also the ideal place for celebrating a wedding. Why? Because of the beauty of the location and the quality of the service of course but not only: the young married couples are used to say that there is also a specific spirit in Dajuma made of serenity and spirituality which fits with this kind of ceremony. This is what happened last week with the wedding of Peter and Karin from Germany. Many friends came to celebrate their commitment. A special and touching moment. Our sincere congratulations!
This is the question often asked by our guests!
Honestly speaking, it is not easy to answer such a question because there are so many places in Bali where the rice paddies deploy their harmonious curves so well arranged by the farmers.
Should you prefer mountain paddies, the most beautiful are probably in the area of Munduk and Pupuan. With an open landscape as a background, listed as a UNESCO World Heritage, the famous rice terraces of Jatiluwih are probably among the prettiest.
Around Dajuma, we have also a lot of rice fields in between the mountains and the ocean with an outstanding particularity: we can see in their background the ocean and the Java volcanoes. Just superb!
While staying at Dajuma, our staff loves communicating with our guests and reciprocally. Sometimes but rarely in Bahasa Indonesia and of course, mostly in English. So we decided to organise private lessons on a regular basis under the guidance of a professional teacher from the nearby village. Every year we can appreciate the outstanding progresses made by our staff, from the gardeners to the waiters passing by the room boys, the cooks or the security officers. An indispensable way to penetrate the unique Balinese culture…

Who ever tasted our delicious home-made marmelade, will keep it for a long time as a reminiscence of his stay at Dajuma, a little bit like the Proust’s Madeleine! Regularly made from the papaya, mango, pineapple, strawberry and other seasonal fruit, the marmelade accompanies fresh bread and pastries, also home-made, making your breakfast a pleasant moment to start your day!
It’s also good for our environment by reducing the packaging waste, favoring the local production and by consequence, limiting our carbon footprint.
We are happy to introduce our new project called PURI DAJUMA VILLAS which will harmoniously complete our existing resort on the seashore of Pekutatan.

- 1 second pool 2,5 m below the first one (6×15 m)
- 1 waterfall and a toboggan in between the 2 pools
- 2 kid ponds
- 1 huge 300 m2 pool deck
- 1 bar – restaurant under the deck

We look forward to welcoming you soon in this new paradise where the same values will prevail: authenticity, serenity, harmony…
This particular training is regularly held to continuously improve both skills and professionalism in order to perform a quick-and-effective-respond action in their daily duties. This month, the training took place at Dajuma’s Baruna Hall, conducted by Pekutatan Police Department Officers. Though there is no serious safety and security issue raising up in Pekutatan area as one of Bali’s exotic tourism destinations for the past few decades, this important training has an important yet valuable mission to provide the best possible way of giving the security assurance to both tourists and local villagers. On the picture, three gentlemen of Dajuma security team (black safari shirt) were listening carefully each important points of the training given by the senior police officer as the trainer in this session.
Recycling bottles in Bali is not a breeze! It’s even a real concern for many hotels around the island. Until recently, there was no possibility to rely on either a private or a public company to collect empty glass bottles.
2 years ago, under the pressure of their professional clients, the main suppliers of soft drinks and beer decided to set-up a recycling process, by organising with their own means the collect and the further treatment of these empty bottles.
But so far, no solution for the bottles of wine.
So, we decided to acquire from New Zealand a machine especially dedicated to the recycling of glass bottles. The result is just spectacular: in a few seconds, any kind of glass bottle is transformed into a soft sand which can be immediately be re-used in the construction field or put on the beach. Really impressive! Our sincere thanks to the company (www.expleco.com) which designed such a useful tool!
« Babi Guling » or « Suckling Pig » is a monument of the Balinese cuisine. Everywhere in Bali one can find these small « Babi Guling Warung », small sympathetic restaurants specialised in this delicious dish.
Imagine in your plate some freshly grilled pig meat with its crispy skin accompanied with a tasty soup, crackers and a bunch of vegetables all cooked in the same spicy sauce. A delice for the palate !
Recently, a family from Australia, staying at Dajuma for a few days, ordered a Babi Guling prepared by our staff. The pig was cooked in Rudi’s house, one of our kitchen supervisor and then brought to Dajuma garden for degustation. Everybody in the family enjoyed this special meal : they said « Sangat Enak ! » which means « Absolutely Delicious ! »
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.
