As part of our eco-policy, all Dajuma staff is invited every two years to participate in a First Aid training aimed at ensuring the safest environment to our guests. This year the training was given by the doctors and the nurses from the closeby Negara Hospital. A necessary refresher course to remind gestures that can save a life if given at the right moment: artificial breathing, use of a defibrillator, securing of a broken bone, and many other things…
Dajuma is located next door the Pulukan State Plantation of 1180 ha where a lot of flora species such as coconut, rubber and clove trees, cocoa and vanilla plants, banana flowers are grown up by local and skilled farmers.
For western kids, the way these species are grown is just mysterious. For example who knows that peanuts grow underground ? Or that vanilla is a variety of orchid ?
And what about chocolate ? Where does it come from ?
One of our guests, Rev Martin Bieler, was shown on one of our tours a fresh open cocoa pod and decided to bring back two pods to Switzerland, to a local school where the children had been learning for some time about the origin and the production of chocolate. Now they finally got hold of two real cocoa pods! From the original fruit brought back by Martin, it was explained step by step to the children how to extract cocoa beans from the fruit, how to dry and roast before grinding and mixing them with a little fat to finally get the delicious chocolate which delights our palates.
What’s an experience for them!
Because of its unique location on a volcanic cape surrounded by two sandy beaches, Puri Dajuma can offer to its guests a comprehensive set of spa and wellness services among which the so-called « Volcano Spa » is one of our best-sellers.
Try to imagine yourself comfortably installed directly on the beach in the breeze from the sea. After a first period of relaxation in one of the natural volcanic giant pots full of water with high mineral content, you will be invited to have a one and a half hour massage with Dajuma essential oils (ask for Serenity, the best!)

Bayu, one of our restaurant supervisor and the two children Ari and Ayu of our HR Manager Erly went last week through this important ceremony which takes place only one time in their life and called Mepetik. It consists in cutting the hair in such a way that your soul gets purified and ready for your adult’s life.
