Recycling bottles in Dajuma

Recycling bottles in Dajuma

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 at Dajuma

« 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 ! »

Dajuma rewarded for its social protection

Dajuma rewarded for its social protection

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

Happy New Year – Selamat Tahun Baru!

Happy New Year - Selamat Tahun Baru!

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.

Christmas & Galungan

Christmas & Galungan

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!

Galungan celebration

Galungan celebration

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.
