Because of its unique location close to the sea and nature, where it is so easy to forget everything about the hectic occidental life, the choice was made from the beginning of Dajuma to avoid TV screens in the rooms. What does not mean that TV and cinema are forbidden at Dajuma! On the contrary, Dajuma offers to its guests a comfortable home cinema which recently enriched with a 60 inch LED screen. A huge library of DVDs in all languages completes the Indovision satellite TV which is covering more than 100 TV channels from all around the world. For all nationalities and tastes!
Year 2014 also started with an important event for Dajuma staff : the change of the uniforms. Each employee received a new uniform composed of a nice batik for the top and the traditional sarong. The fabric was chosen strong and light with the objective to support heavy-duty tasks while providing the necessary comfort to our employees. Colors were also carefully chosen to fit with our environment. Padmi, our waitress at Rama restaurant, looks very « cantik » (pronounced « chantik » in Bahasa Indonesia which means « nice ») on the picture!
Once a year, Hindus in Bali are used to celebrate what we call here the Tumpek Landep.
Don’t try to guess what it is, it is just impossible !
The tradition is to consider that all objects of the daily life made of iron including cars, motorcycles, engines, tools, etc. is a gift from the Gods. As such, they must be celebrated in a specific ceremony called Tumpek Landep. All the objects of the hotel made of iron are gathered in a single place and blessed by the Priest while the staff prays and thanks the Gods for their benefactions.
On the picture, some of the cars of the hotel specially decorated on this occasion.
After several stays at Dajuma in the last 2 years, Natacha, an executive woman from France, decided to make a break in her hectic professional career by staying for 6 months in Dajuma.
During this time she got more and more acquainted with the rich Balinese culture and traditions. She built a lot of friendly relationships with the staff and the villagers, and even participated in the outing to Jogjakarta with them.
«My living among Balinese people was the way to find the new spirit I was kooking for, we shared so much!”
Here on the picture, she is preparing some decorations, learning from Tini the head of the Spa how to create from the bamboo leaves these adorable suspending decorations.
