In the exuberant Dajuma garden, at the detour of the paths adorned with frangipanies, bougainvillers and other ibiscus one can have the surprise to see nice birds practicing the traditional Balinese « mandi-mandi » (« bath-shower ») in stone basins covered with waterlily flowers.
Here on the picture, a family of Scaly-breasted Munia birds easily recognizable with their plastron looking like leopard skin. A rare moment to savor!

It was time to change the decoration of our bar in Rama restaurant !
After 12 years of loyal service, the red bricks have been replaced by nice ceramics looking like corals, the seats made from teak wood and leather are more comfortable than before. The opinions of our guests are unanimous to say that it looks great !
One more good reason to savour our delicious cocktails in a warm and friendly atmosphere!
One specific feature of Dajuma, often mentioned in the comments of our guests is its tropical garden or « Taman » in Bahasa Indonesia. Our Head Gardener Anom (3rd from the left) is the master of the place: with his team composed of 4 people (Sunarta, Mudita, Gunaya, and Sumawa missing on the picture) all from the village of Pekutatan he created a wonderful 1,5 hectar park where thousand of flowers and trees are coexisting in the most harmonious arrangement. Not so easy to choose his or her preferred specy in this floral expansion but for sure there are for all tastes!
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.

- 4 Villas (3 bedrooms each) for rent partly or all
- 1 swimming corridor 40 m long
- 1 overflowing swimming pool like a rice field overlooking the sea (8×16 m)
- 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
The aerial picture shows the location of this extention.
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.
