Dajuma paradise is the perfect place to learn about boutique hotel management. We were pleased to have with us Nouria, a young lady who is studying in one of the prestigious hotel school in Switzerland.

She bring back with her the Balinese touch which and could apply some of it with her next employer. We wish Nouria all the best and a great challenge for the future.

Dajuma location is just perfect to watch skilled traditional fishermen. Watch them carefully… At the beginning of high tide they come discretely walking in the ocean at knee level scrutinizing the horizon where a mixed of current and waves will trap small group of fish up to 20 cm in length. When close enough, the fisherman throws his net with a twist creating a circle, due to metal pieces attached all around the extremities of the fishing net. The net immerses itself and traps the fish. The throw needs to be accurate and sharp the fisherman’s eyes. This type of fishing is practiced by only a few men. Hope it will be transferred to other generation. They will be delighted to show you how to do. Ready for a challenge!
Music is a major part of Balinese lifestyle and education. Every village has its own Gamelan orchestra which is accompanied by dancers who practice since childhood. Instruments can not be separated. They are kept by the community and handed on each new generation. Gamelan performs for show but also for rituals and ceremonies. Every week during high season Dajuma prepares diner on the grass to enjoy Pekutatan Gamelan show. Guests will be explained the performance meaning and invited to dance with the artists. They will be provided with a bamboo instrument called “Kul Kul” to experience this amazing feeling when dancers and musicians follow a crescendo rhythm. A great moment to share!
