Our front desk supervisor Agus, is much appreciated by our guests for his kindness and professionalism. Last wednesday, we had the pleasure to share with him and his family, in his beautiful house of Gumbrih, an important ceremony called “Nyambutin”. The first 3 months of his life, a Balinese baby still belongs to the Gods and cannot put even one foot on the ground. The Nyambutin ceremony aims at welcoming the baby in the world of humans and this is what happened to Agus’ son called Stiven Rama Diasta a few days ago. A warm welcome to Stiven and our congratulations to Agus and his wife Puji Astani!
Another beautiful tradition in Bali is the kite celebration. Every year mainly in July and August, Bali sky is covered of these colorful kites driven by kids as well as by adults. The kite in Bali has a strong meaning: it is not only a hobby for Balinese but also a link to the sky and a way to say thank you to the Gods for what they do for the humans. At the moment, in all villages, everybody is preparing his kite for the various competitions which will take place this year from the beginning of July until the end of October (http://www.bali-indonesia.com/magazine/bali-kites-festival.htm).
Dajuma is no exception to the rule: on the beach where the wind is just ideal, village’ kids train themselves in view of the next competition and are also glad to initiate our guests. You should not miss it: it is just unbelievable because some kites are sometimes 10 meters long! Just crazy!
Because of its location nearby the famous Medewi surfing spot, Dajuma is the ideal place where to stay by combining the best of surfing and the discovery of one of the most rich and authentic parts of Bali. Medewi is renowned for its famously long left-hand wave which has been praised by numerous former surf champions and is ideal for all levels. Our surfing guests love surfing it in the morning and relax or stroll around the rest of the day. We recently received with pleasure from Flightnetwork.com the reward “Top 16 World’s Best Surfcamp”. Looking forward to welcoming you!
A few kilometers from Dajuma, close to the sacred tree Bunut Bolong, we were invited last saturday to the inauguration of a new trekking area by the government of Jembrana which is this region of West Bali where Dajuma is located. Jembrana is now well known for its authenticity and the variety of its hidden treasures: the famous Bali National Park with its unique diving and snorkeling spot Menjangan, another worldclass spot for surfing called Medewi, the holy temple of Rambut Siwi, the fishing harbor of Perancak, the buffalo races, the Jegog music and so many other curiosities! Another very interesting discovery is trekking in the jungle what is now possible thanks to the initiative of Jembrana Tourism Authority: imagine a 1h30 to 2h tour by foot where you will discover the unbelievable wealth of Bali nature, its trees and flowers, its so tiny and beautiful temples nestled everywhere. We are ready for the next summer season to make you discover this new treasure of West Bali. We are sure you will love it!
