English courses at Dajuma

English courses at Dajuma

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…

Home Made Marmelade!

Home made marmelade!

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.

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!

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.
