BABY ON BOARD

My name is Aristide and I am only 6 months old.
My father loves surfing the Medewi wave near Dajuma but he is also taking good care of me.
What I love above all is to have a little nap on my surf board in the Bendega pool.
My father says that it will make me a good surfer in some years. Aahhh what a beautiful life!

FISHERMEN' HOUSE PROTECTION Puri Dajuma, Beach Eco-Resort & Spa, West Bali Dajuma West Bali

FISHERMEN’ HOUSE PROTECTION

Next door Dajuma land, directly on the beach, is the Pekutatan fishermen’ house where fishermen are used to meet and exchange their fishing every day. In front of the house a wall made from river stones was supposed to protect it from the sea, especially from full moon tides. The condition of the wall being more and more deteriorated, we decided to help the fishermen community by financing its  complete renovation: a double protection by 2 walls especially shaped to stop the sea is currently under construction and should be completed shortly. A good way to start the new year!

Last month took place the gathering of the members of Bookgreener network in the beautiful place of Bali Eco Stay. Warmly welcome by its owner John and Alex founder of Bookgreener, 30 representatives of various eco-resorts and hotels in Bali were happy to meet and share experiences in terms of sustainable development practices. Created in 2014 by Alex Tsuk, Bookgreener is aimed at fostering sustainable practices in the accomodation industry.

We are really happy and proud to be part of this original initiative. Thank you Alex and John!

HAPPY NEW YEAR! SELAMAT TAHUN BARU!

The festivities of this end of the year were particularly warm in Dajuma. Around a delicious buffet with its traditional Baby Guling and Ayam Betutu and 3 orchestras including 2 traditional (Gamelan and Jegog) a young dance troupe (photo), all children of the surrounding villages, have interpreted the beautiful story of Rama and Sinta inspired by Ramayana. On the 12 strokes of midnight, the guests exchanged their vows on the stage while striking the famous kul kul (a piece of bamboo sounding like a bell when hit by a stick) under a magnificent fireworks display. The band Bagus from Negara closed the evening with Linda, a wonderful singer in live. The year 2017 really got off to a good start!
