Among many other special customs, Bali is the place in the world where the know-how of floral decorations is probably at the top! Made from flowers, bamboo, coconut or banana leaves, these decorations adorn houses and temples in Bali and many of our guests make the most of their stay with us by learning about this beautiful tradition. This is what happened last week with family Liertz from Germany whose father is learning from our staff as shown on the picture.
At sunset, there is one thing that kids love above all: it is to walk along a sandy beach trying to catch the most possible crabs and seashells! On the photo, two sweet little girls Calypso and Lola run on the beach in the direction of the tall coconut tree that marks the boundary of the resort on the East side. A moment of pure happiness!
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. A fascinating and touching spectacle where you see birds toileting exactly (or almost …) like humans !
