From their youngest age, Balinese children are initiated to traditional Balinese dances in every village of the island. Among many other customs of their rich culture, dancing takes a particular importance: because it is not only a demanding and codified physical exercise but also a link to the past and  legends perpetuated by the Ramayana.
Since many years, Dajuma helps the dancing school of the village to maintain this beautiful tradition. Every week, young villagers are used to come on Dajuma stage and perform their art under the vigilant guidance of their professor. Our guests are always fascinated by this spectacle and their children are often invited to accompany them. Always a beautiful moment of sharing!

One outstanding feature of Balinese culture, among many others, is the quality of its food. Everywhere in the island, from the modest “warung” up to the most trendy restaurants, the food is just delicious. Some specialties are particularly appreciated by the visitors. Gado gado, ayam betutu, babi guling, rijstafel, tum bali, soto ayam, crispy duck, nasi goreng and beef rendang revisited in the Balinese way are some of these Balinese dishes which enchant the palate.
With its 8 cooks team, Dajuma offers 4 different dining experiences: the Rama restaurant serves a variety of Asian and Western food, the Sinta Lounge offers its unique teppanyaki Japanese tabletop, while the Bendega grill proposes tapas plates in the Balinese way. Not to be missed also are these romantic dinners on the beach.
On the picture our brigade with, from left to right, Swadewi, Tri, Udiana, Rudi, Sabtu, Suryanta (Executive Chef) and Wayan. Missing on the picture Dedy.

What are the dreams of local fishermen’ chidren? Most of them want to do the same job as their fathers. From their youngest childhood, they like playing in the sea with small boats looking exactly like the ones of their fathers or learning how to surf the waves. This is exactly what the two brothers are doing on the picture but it seems that only one will become a fisherman, the other one looking for being a surf champion!

The delicate and colorful Balinese cuisine is something worth to discover when visiting Bali. Many of our guests are often asking the question « How do you make these tasty dishes? What is the secrets of your recipes? » The best way to answer this question is of course by practicing. We recently inaugurated a new way of discovering the secrets of Balinese cuisine by cooking on the beach on charcoals exactly like in the village. On the picture a young guest Tom is learning from Udiana and Surianta how to prepare these delicious bamboo sate. Selamat makan!

On the picture, in front of villa Surya, our gardeners have created something really special: they started from a bougainvillier which they decided to marry with a creeping plant and some orchid.

We sometimes read reviews stating that it is difficult to swim in the sea around Dajuma.
We have 2 main beaches: on the East side, waves and tides are often strong and only local fishermen, knowing perfectly the tides, can swim in this area to catch lobsters.
On the West side, on the contrary, the beach is well protected by the cape and the waves are just ideal for swimming or practicing sea sports such as body boarding, SUP, surf, kite surf, sailing, kayak.
But of course, like everywhere in the world, it is not recommended to swim in the sea when the weather is stormy, which sometimes happens in the year. To help our guests to safely enjoy sea sports on this West beach, we installed flags which color indicates the status of the sea: yellow means OK, red means Danger. Moreover our beach supervisor Jupry is always happy to help you to go to the sea in the most friendly and safe way.

The famous “Day of Silence” called Nyepi in Bali, will take place this year on March 28th. Celebrating the New Year in the Saka calendar, this event is probably the most interesting in terms of Balinese traditions. All of the island’s inhabitants abide by a set of local rules, which brings all routine activities to a complete halt. Roads all over Bali are void of any traffic and nobody steps outside of their home premises. Village meeting halls known as ‘banjar’ and streets feature papier-mâché effigies called ogoh-ogoh, built throughout the weeks leading up to the Saka New Year.

On this unique occasion in the year, Dajuma offers a special package not to be missed:
Happy Nyepi!

Because of its orientation full West, Dajuma is the ideal place where to enjoy stunning sunsets while savoring a delicious cocktail prepared by our waiters. During sunsets, at low tide, the cape in front of Dajuma is often discovered and gives rise to an amazing spectacle where local families come to bathe (the famous “mandi mandi”) while fishermen are preparing their prahos for the night fishing.

Indonesia is the world’s third largest producer of cocoa. However, despite this privileged position, it is only recently that an excellent chocolate is produced locally. Among the producing regions, that of Jembrana in Bali is probably the most promising. A few steps from Dajuma, in the small village of Gumbrih, Putu after being trained in Macassar, decided to embark on a new chocolate factory. Working cooperatively with the village producers of cocoa beans, it produces a magnificent chocolate that delights the taste buds of our customers.
A local initiative we are happy and proud to help in our hotel supplies for our chocolate fondants and our little squares served with coffee, among others. In the picture Putu let us know how this machine mixes for 2 days cocoa and cocoa butter to make the most creamy chocolates. Good luck Putu!

With the growth of our 3 restaurants, it became necessary to choose  a digital and friendly solution to take the orders with the objective to accelerate both the ordering and the cooking processes, diminish the waiting time for our guests and  facilitate the work of our staff. This has been done last month with the Waiterio application: with a few clicks on a tablet, our waiters are now able to take an order in a few seconds which is then directly transmitted to the kitchen. Same increase of speed for the issuance of the invoice. On the picture our staff during the training session. Good luck guys!

Next door Dajuma land, directly on the beach, is the Pekutatan fishermen’ house where fishermen are used to meet and exchange their fishing every day. In front of the house a wall made from river stones was supposed to protect it from the sea, especially from full moon tides. The condition of the wall being more and more deteriorated, we decided to help the fishermen community by financing its  complete renovation: a double protection by 2 walls especially shaped to stop the sea is currently under construction and should be completed shortly. A good way to start the new year!

Last month took place the gathering of the members of Bookgreener network in the beautiful place of Bali Eco Stay. Warmly welcome by its owner John and Alex founder of Bookgreener, 30 representatives of various eco-resorts and hotels in Bali were happy to meet and share experiences in terms of sustainable development practices. Created in 2014 by Alex Tsuk, Bookgreener is aimed at fostering sustainable practices in the accomodation industry. And the least we can say is that this noble goal has been more than achieved in less than 2 years with a lot of eco-friendly practices spread around the members of Bookgreener such as the recycling of plastic, the Bali refill program to save water, organic food and many other things. We are really happy and proud to be part of this original initiative. Thank you Alex and John!

The festivities of this end of the year were particularly warm in Dajuma. Around a delicious buffet with its traditional Baby Guling and Ayam Betutu and 3 orchestras including 2 traditional (Gamelan and Jegog) a young dance troupe (photo), all children of the surrounding villages, have interpreted the beautiful story of Rama and Sinta inspired by Ramayana. On the 12 strokes of midnight, the guests exchanged their vows on the stage while striking the famous kul kul (a piece of bamboo sounding like a bell when hit by a stick) under a magnificent fireworks display. The band Bagus from Negara closed the evening with Linda, a wonderful singer in live. The year 2017 really got off to a good start!

HAPPY 2017!
Dajuma family wishes you and your family a beautiful new year filled with peace, happyness and good health.
We look forward to seeing you again in 2017!

2016 has been a year full of challenges for Dajuma: after 2 years of intensive work, we opened our new Bendega villas on May 1st, increasing our capacity by 50% with now 35 rooms in total. In parallel we opened a new restaurant with a brand new menu composed of original and tasty dishes, we changed the decoration of most of our traditional cottages while accentuating the protection of our exceptional environment. By listening carefully the Voice of our Customers through outside reviews and our own satisfaction surveys we also improved the quality of our service without loosing the very specific link which exists since the beginning between our guests and our staff.
Nothing would have been possible without the support of our guests and partners. On this specific occasion we would like to thank them again and wish them and their families every happiness, success and good health throughout the New Year and beyond!

In terms of SPA “Sanitas Per Aquam” in Latin or “Health Through Water“, what is better than these giant pots shaped by the volcanoes lava for bathing? It is in these natural bassins filled with mineral-rich seawater by the tides that our guests and the villagers are used to relax, preferably at sunset, just before or after a Balinese massage, in front of the tropical garden of Dajuma. A good opportunity to discover the benefits of this “Volcano Spa” and to practice the “art of conversation” with other guests and locals. A pure moment of happiness as witnessed by the two little girls of the photo. Not to be missed on your next visit to Dajuma!

Everybody visiting Indonesia heard about Colonel Ngurah Raï whose name is celebrated everywhere including in the name of Bali International Airport.
But very few know that this national hero landed with his troops on the beach in front of Dajuma in April 1946 to bypass the blocus of the island by the Dutch army.
On November 20th,  the authorities celebrated the 70th anniversary of the Puputan Margarana (« fight until the end ») at Taman Pujaan Bangsa (TPB) Margarana, as a form of respect and appreciation for the service and sacrifice of heroes.
The ceremony was led by the Deputy Governor of Bali, I Ketut Sudikerta. In his speech, He said « the memorial is the momentum of renewal of the historical values of the nation. The Puputan led by Lieutenant Colonel I Gusti Ngurah Rai, against the invaders who wanted to regain control of the country, shows the spirit of struggle and unity of the people of Bali, as an integral part of the Republic of Indonesia. »

Dajuma staff took last week some good time with a trip to Malang organised in 2 groups of 30 people each. Everything has been carefully prepared by the management (Erly HR, Alit and Rondy GMs).
Let Alit (white shirt on the right) report these 3 days of discovery of East Java.
The trip started at 7 am from Dajuma with a comfortable bus of 45 seats directly to Malang where we arrived around 17.00 at Swiss Bell Hotel (check in time).
After two hours rest and shower we prepared a first visit to BNS (Batu Night Spectacular ) until 10 pm.
There are dozens of rides that we will not be able to forget after enjoying them like a ghost gallery, a slalom test, the highest air bike, garden lanterns, and trampoline.
In these places you can also test your adrenaline by trying some of the rides like a drag race, mouse coaster, and several other games.
Second day we started at 9 am after breakfast doing rafting on the river Brantas. It can indeed make the heart beat hard. Not only because of collisions with river rocks, but also the effect of plunging following the swift river currents. Sensations also vary. Sometimes twisted like a snake, sometimes too rocked.
Everybody ate a lot after rafting around 2,5 hours, next visit to pick up the apple fruit directly from the tree (Apple is famous fruit from Malang).
The last day, we visited JATIM PARK 2 (recreation Park in Batu with Secret Zoo and Animal Museum). In Secret Zoo we also visited Savannah,  a traditional African village with African atmosphere.There are huts with roof made by straw where pigs and another animals are walking around.
Finally, all the team went shopping to bring back some nice souvenirs from Malang while on the way back to Dajuma.

The flowering season for the Flamboyant also called “Flame Tree” is now approaching in Bali. Originated from Madagascar and discovered at the beginning of the 19th century, the flamboyant is now present in almost all tropical countries. In Bali, it is always a great pleasure to see this so well named tree along the roads growing wildely or on the contrary pampered in private gardens as adornly trees. In both cases it is a shock for westerners to suddenly see the sky flaming. On the picture a flamboyant on the road to Perancak, a nice spot to visit close to Dajuma, with its incredible fishermen boats.

When we opened our new Bendega Restaurant last May, our idea was to create a different atmosphere from our other two restaurants Rama and Shinta.
The menu in particular was supposed to be different, more « beach oriented » with grilled fish and sea-food. Then came the idea « why not offering also these delicious tapas »  but not the ones we are used to have in Europe, something revisited in the Balinese way.
After several discussions and attempts with our first Chef Surianta and his team, based on 3 main criteria – taste, texture and presentation- we selected around 20 of them, all really exceptional. Why exceptional? Because they are the perfect blend of two exceptional culinary cultures.
When do you decide to come over? Just waiting for your visit!

Impossible to miss these beautiful birds when staying at Dajuma because they are everywhere in the garden and not wild at all with humans.
This picture was taken from the bed of our Shanti duplex villa just before sunset : a couple of Yellow-vented bulbuls decided to have their « mandi mandi » (bath in Bahasa indonesia) just in front of the terrace.

Under the leadership of our yogi Tini, this discipline of body and mind can be practiced in multiple places in our resort: in our Baruna hall with its breathtaking view of the ocean, but also on our new pool deck Bendega or in the gardens bordering the beach. Another possibility consists in practicing it from its own room as shown by Monika on this picture.

Like on the picture where Juliarta, our restaurant supervisor, is greeting a young 2 years boy called Lyam. Welcome kids and enjoy!

Last Wednesday, Sept 7th, the Balinese started the celebration of Galungan which commemorates every 210 days, the triumph of Dharma (good) against Adharma (evil). It marks the time when the ancestral spirits visit the Earth. The last day of the celebration is Kuningan, 10 days later on Sept 17th, when they return.
All over Bali, bamboo poles called « penjor », finely decorated with young coconut leaves decorations,  adorn streets and houses. This is a unique welcome to Bali if you happen to be on the island during this period. If you miss this one, don’t forget to put in your diary the next one which will take place from April 5 to 15th 2017.
Happy Galungan & Kuningan !

This is good news for our guests: the optical fiber has been installed up to our resort and works very well, complementing an already existing 4g telecommunications system!
Who could imagine a few years ago that these 2 latest technologies would be available so quickly in this part of Bali? It is done now making our guests very happy. With a ping around 5 ms and download / upload speeds in the range of respectively 20 and  5 Mbps, all Internet resources are available, including video streaming and demanding file transfers. Another good reason to stay with us!

Fishing off-shore is one of our in-house activity much appreciated by our guests. Jupry, our beach supervisor, himself son of a local fisherman, is always happy to organise a fishing party on one of these beautiful prahos. Starting from the West beach close by the resort, they sail a few miles between Bali and Java in a place where the fish is abundant. On the picture our guest Christopher is proud to show his catch, a beautiful Indian Threadfin also called Mirror fish which has been especially grilled and served to Christopher’s family for the dinner.

Should you be an experimented rider wishing to not only ride all day long, every day of your holiday but also to discover the authentic Bali and provide your half with both a relaxing and exhilarating holiday, you would surely appreciate to stay at Puri Dajuma Cottages & Villas, the lovely eco boutique hotel located on the South-Western coast of Bali, on the beachfront of the Pekutatan village. This is surely the nicest place where to have a perfect blend of authentic Bali culture in an outstanding location right on the beach, next to the old fashioned fishermen Balinese boats. The hotel offers 3 restaurants with a large selection of dishes, 2 large pools which one consists in a 50m long swimming river, a reknown SPA and many tours in the immediate surroundings to get acquainted with the beautiful assets of the Balinese culture. As for kitesurfing: the hotel is located on a large piece of volcanic rock which is partially recovered at high tide. At low tide, the ocean unveils a large piece of emerged rock which breaks the waves and offers a flat area to rig and launch the kites. Downwind, the rock line is perpendicular to the wind direction which is almost straight and gives the floor to a sandy beach. The place is famous in Indonesia since hero Ngura Rai landed right on the spot in 1946 to fight for the independence of the archipelago. A Monument was erected on the spot to remember his contribution to free the country. The spot is dedicated to yet confirmed riders due to sea hazards specific to that area. There might be some strong currents as well as high, irregular and highly paced waves. You should have a good kitesurfing level to ride in this area. In case of trouble, the wind pushes you to the beach opposite the starting point anyway which provides a kind of inherent natural safety to the area but still, currents and waves can be tedious. Wind is steady and comes from South West, off the rock line but cross on shore the opposite beach. You can expect steady winds in the 10-20 knots range between June & September. The wind usually starts blowing at 10am up to late at night. Out of 3 weeks spent on site in summer 2016, we had over 10 days of steady wind to rig either a 15 m2 or a 12m2 canopy. Pay attention to ride at low tide when there are not too many waves and low off-shore current: this allows to start right in front of the hotel so as to step over the rock line and reach the sandy water safely. You can rig your kite in front of the hotel and request some assistance for launching. From that point, the wind is almost perpendicular to the rock line. In case of trouble, you have then about 700-1000m before reaching the beach on the opposite side of the bay (stony). A pair of booties is mandatory since the volcanic stones the cape is made of are pretty sharp. As currents and waves are not regular, you should take time and observe carefully the area before launching your kite and check that the size of the waves is OK for you. If so, and provided some friends are available to take pictures from the rock line located perpendicular to the wind, you can take exceptional pictures of your riding friend. Finally, after your riding session, your can take advantage of the protection from the cape to safely land your kite on the sandy beach at the tip of the rockline, provided that you have enough speed to reach the beach before the wind dies. This is actually very safe since the wind almost disappears immediately once you have reached the wake of the cape, well protected by the hotel facilities and the trees of the garden. Enjoy your riding sessions at Puri Dajuma Cottages!

In a very joyful ambiance, Audrey and Matthieu from France got married at Dajuma last week, with all their family and friends around them. After the Hindu blessing in the garden performed by our priest Kadek, the exchange of rings followed by a “vin d’honneur” took place on the beach at sunset. A delicious dinner was served on the new Bendega pool deck with some breaks devoted to Balinese traditional dances, the launch on Chinese lanterns on the sea and a beautiful fireworks. Finally a talentuous modern orchestra from Negara took over for the rest of the party.
We wish Audrey and Matthieu to make a dream of their life and to make of their dream a daily reality. All the best!

Not far from Dajuma is the famous Menjangan diving spot, one of the richest in terms of underwater flora and fauna. After one and a half hour drive on the scenic road around the West Bali National Park and 20 mn by boat you reach the island of Menjanagan (the « island of deers » in Bahasa Indonesia) which is surrounded by a coral reef where thousands of fishes and seashells live. Many of our guests did their first dive here, under the attentive supervision of Joss, our diving partner. For those who prefer snorkeling, the pleasure is also guaranteed.
On the picture, our young guest Calypso, who is only 6 years old, enjoys snorkeling in a beautiful mermaid costume. A mythic character nevertheless quite real!

The jack fruit is one of these mythic tropical fruit almost unknown from westerners. It has not really a good appearance neither a good smell outside and, however, it is absolutely delicious after being well prepared. With a long history behind him – it was already cultivated in India 3000 years ago – the jackfruit is today much appreciated in various culinary uses either as a main course or as a dessert.

Where is the best place  to unwind during summertime after a long and hectic professional year? The answer is definitively here at Dajuma, far from the hustle and bustle of big cities, where our staff will have thousands of attentions to make your stay unforgettable.
Let’s take an example of a perfect day in paradise: wake-up in the morning not too late to see the dawn while strolling on the beach for one hour. Around eight, time for breakfast in the garden just in front of the spectacular cape where hundreds of birds are playing with the tide. After that, it’s time for activities such as yoga, sporting or touring around the nearby authentic West Bali. After the lunch taken in one of our 3 restaurants perhaps would you like to make a break like this nice lady on the picture or join our wellness center for a revigorating massage. The dusk coming around 6:30 p.m. it is time to savor a delicious cocktail  before dining in a romantic atmosphere either on the beach or in front of one of our Teppanyaki cook. A day fully occupied, perfectly balanced between physical and cultural activities, where the master word is “relax”!

One among many other facets of Balinese culture is the importance of learning music and dance in each and every family. From their youngest age, Balinese children are used to learn from their parents how to play music and perform these beautiful ritual dances. Once they are skilled enough, they start playing in their own children orchestra. How proud they are to show their art on Dajuma stage from time to time !

Starting from Puri Dajuma up to the North crossroad, climbing again 9 km and passing by the State plantation entrance, you will certainly make a stop at « Bunut Bolong ».
‘Bunut’ is the Balinese name for this kind of banyan-tree, ‘Bolong’ means hole: nothing to say when the hole is big enough to accommodate two cars crossing the tree together!
Impossible to cut it down and no means to build the road besides; it is a sacred tree, inhabited by spirits symbolized by two tigers.
Moreover the set of shrines with the tree honors the great sage Sidhi Mantra who happened to pass this area hundreds of years ago.
Long story, scenic road in the nature, unique display and few shops to drink and look at the place seated in the shadow: many assets for a nice stop.

Located in Tabanan, only 1 hour drive from Dajuma, is this new and unique company in Indonesia, called ENVIRO PALLETS which is able to recycle any plastic waste into pallets weighing 14 kg each, able to carry 4 tons without moving, 1,2 ton when moving. Originated from New Zealand and working with a patented process owned by Range International, this company produces already 500 to 600 pallets per day and they plan to have another factory in Surabaya. Their pallets are less expensive than the wood ones (good to know that 41% of the wood cut in the world is used to produce 4,6 billions of wood pallets and similar products every year!) They have already customers  abroad like Coca-Cola worldwide including another product for bottle cases. They buy the clean plastic only: 2000 Rp per kilo for the best quality (A) to 500 Rp for the worst one (D). But It is still hard for them to collect the plastic in Bali. We will do our best to promote this fantastic opportunity in Bali which completes our in house recycling process for glass bottles already operational.  It also makes our plastic recycling greener by avoiding to send our plastic to Java which was the case before.
