Part of our Front Desk team, Mira is well known from our guests and particularly appreciated because of her always smiling availability and kindness. Her motto is “there is no request by the guest that can not be satisfied and make him happy ». A few days ago, Mira’s family welcome a beautiful 3,8 kg baby called Tisya. Hindu communities in Bali believe that babies in the womb are guarded by four elements, namely amniotic fluid, placenta, blood and umbilical cord. Three of these elements are released when babies are born, but the umbilical cord stays attached for about a week. The release of the rest of the sacred umbilical cord is done on the occasion of a ceremony called “Mepenelahan” which is considered as a purifying ceremony for the baby. On the picture, Mira, Indra (husband), Tiara and Baby Tisya who just finished doing the “Mepenelahan” Ceremony. Welcome Tisya and long life to you!
There is one thing our staff loves above all, it is to create the surprise to our guests by decorating the bedroom on the occasion of specific celebrations such as anniversaries. This is particularly the case for honeymooners who are always amazed, when opening the door of their room, to find on their bed a lot of beautifully arranged flowers creating a very romantic atmosphere where colors and scents enchant their senses. On the picture Agus has just finished one of them. Hopefully our young honeymooners Deborah and Markus from Switzerland will like it!
Is there a better place where to practice Yoga than a soft sandy beach with the sea at your feet? The virgin beaches around Dajuma are the perfect place for that. This is what our guests from USA, Brent and Traci decided to do every morning of their stay with us. A good way to start the day!
This week, we would like to relay the crowdfunding campaign launched by our supplier of water filters Jeroen van Overbeek.
So far, through his NGO Social Impakt (http://www.social-impakt.com), he brought clean water to 16’000 people in Indonesia, mainly rural families.
Now he wants to “raise 60 000 Euros to provide 2000 water filters for 15,000 people in 3 villages and 25 schools in the poorer rural East Bali area of Sidemen, Karangasem”.
To donate, the procedure is quite simple: just go to https://www.theupeffect.com/affordable-water-filtration-technology-for-rural-indonesia-/
and follow the instructions. Every donation even modest will have a positive impact! Good luck Jeroen!
Last week, a few kilometers from Dajuma, took place in Negara, the capital city of the Regency of Jembrana, a cultural festival giving the opportunity to all surroundings villages to celebrate Balinese traditions, among them the clothing is particularly important.
The highlight of the event was on September 1st with the Annual Cultural Parade of West Bali involving various artists not only from Jembrana but also from other regencies in Bali, some of them also came from Java.
This year the government invited the tourism associations to involve the tourists to be the part of the parade. This is what happened to our guests so excited to participate in this event and get a chance to wear the traditional Balinese clothes.
On the above picture (left to right) beautifully dressed: Aron, Antje, Laurenz, Sofia, Youssef, Dayu, Andreas and friend of Andreas. You look great guys!
