A new free map to discover the surroundings of Dajuma

Dajuma is located nearby the village of Pekutatan, at the edge of West Bali National Park. The whole area  counts something like 15’000 inhabitants, in a harmonious mix of farmers and fishermen as well as Hindu and Islam religions. A lot of authentic wonders to discover for our guests, by foot, bicycle or motorbike, from the virgin sandy seashore where colorful prahos are operated by athletic fishermen to the rice paddies carefully cultivated by skilled and sympathetic farmers.

Close to the Rama restaurant, in the middle of the lawn,  your eye may be attracted by  a small traditional statue : a women carrying a flat basket on her head.

Renovation of our boat monument Puri Dajuma, Beach Eco-Resort & Spa, West Bali

Renovation of our boat monument

There is a landmark on the beach in front of Dajuma which is a boat with 3 soldiers on the deck among which the famous Colonel Ngurah Raï, hero of the Indonesian independence. Despite a strong structure made from the concrete, the waves regularly damage this beautiful commemorative monument. Until this year it was impossible for Dajuma to renovate it because it is the property of the Indonesian army. After some months of negotiation, we finally obtained the authorization to refurbish it what is done at the moment. Here on the picture, our team of workers under the guidance of I Putu Edit Andi Pratama, a renowned artist in the region, specialised in the construction of statues all around the Regency.
Their work is so perfect that it is almost impossible to distinguish between real humans and statues. Try to count how many real humans we have on the picture!

Good harvest this year for clove and cacao in Pekutatan Puri Dajuma, Beach Eco-Resort & Spa, West Bali

Good harvest this year for clove and cacao in Pekutatan

Clove and Cacao’s harvests have been particularly good this year in Pekutatan. Together with rice, vegetable, coffee and  fruit,  the clove and cacao plantations are well developped in this part of the island. The farmers proceed with the harvest of the clove once a year and twice for the cacao. They extract the clove and the cacao beans and make them drying in the sun before sending them to Java where the cacao beans are roasted and exported.
On the picture some clove and cacao beans drying in Pekutatan village, nearby Dajuma. The farmer also collects waste from the village for recycling.

New Internet Antenna at Dajuma

Since many years, Dajuma offers to its guests a free wifi service which is available in each room and all around the resort. As frequently as possible, depending on the evolution of the technology offered by our providers, we look for improving our internal installations. This is what has been done recently with 2 big dish antennas linking the property with the provider located in Negara, 26 km from Dajuma. The result is really satisfactory: more speed and afterall, more stability in the transmissions. To give you a more precise idea about the gains, here are the measures made by our technician:
Before: Download: 1,61 Mbps – Upload: 410 Kbps – Ping: 83 ms
Now: Download: 2,34 Mbps – Upload: 610 Kbps – Ping: 59 ms
On the picture, the old antenna on the left and the new one on the right. Not so bad for linking a piece of paradise to the rest of the world, is’nt it?
