5 YEARS... Puri Dajuma, Beach Eco-Resort & Spa, West Bali Indra

5 YEARS…

Prominent on the sea with its special rocky landscape, the beach in front of Dajuma is often the place where people like to contemplate, to share wishes or to recollect after a decease.
Last Monday was the 5th anniversary about Indra’s accident, on a Monday afternoon too.
Indra’s wife and daughters as well as his close friends and colleagues were happy to gather with offerings to remember about him and his central place in Dajuma’s story during 12 years.
Om shanti shanti shanti.

BOOKGREENER GATHERING

Last week we had the pleasure to welcome the monthly meeting of Bookgreener members which gathers hoteliers in Bali strongly engaged for environmental protection and sustainable tourism.
Every month, under the dynamic guidance of its founder Alex Tsuk, its members like to exchange experiences on various topics. This month, the topic was “How to communicate about Agung Volcano”. 3 internationally known lecturers from Canada (live), Island and Peru (via Skype) brought their experience of managing communication in similar situations of volcano eruptions. A very interesting day of work ponctutated in the middle by a delicious lunch prepared by our French Chef Paul. The day before, our Bookgreener friends were invited to visit some West Bali hidden treasures, its stunning rice fields, the jegog music, the absolutely unique new Green Cliff, Perancak and its beautiful buggies boats and finally the sea turtles conservatory. A nice moment of sharing!

Hiking Ijen volcano Puri Dajuma, Beach Eco-Resort & Spa, West Bali Java Nature Tours

Hiking Ijen volcano

It is already 9 years that the Ijen volcano is worldwide known with its spectacular crater and sulphur extraction on East Java.

And it is 15 years that Puri Dajuma is involved in the great experience of its hiking.

Not so far from Bali straight joining Java by ferryboat during the night, our guests arrive at the basis of “Kawah Ijen” at 3 AM so that they can enjoy together the “blue fire” and the sunrise in the Dante atmosphere of the crater and sulphured green lake. They are always happy to offer some gift to these courageous minors who are able to carry 70 kg on their shoulders.

An unforgettable tour if you are familiar with mountain conditions and wear appropriate shoes!

DAJUMA SUNSETS: WHICH ANGLE WILL BE YOURS?

This week, we decided to publish our blog on the theme “Dajuma Sunsets” but seen from the viewpoint of our guests through their own pictures. Oriented full West the resort presents stunning sunsets which are appreciated by our guests particularly those who like to photograph this natural phenomenon. But the problem is under which angle should we take such picture? Because, from many locations around the resort, the result is different as shown on the photo montage. And that should not stop you from enjoying a good glass of wine. Which angle will be yours?

HAPPY NEW YEAR! Puri Dajuma, Beach Eco-Resort & Spa, West Bali Dajuma West Bali

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Big party under the moon last night in Dajuma to celebrate the new year. Our guests have discovered the magic of Balinese dances performed by the young people of the village dance school. They were accompanied by several musicians, the Kembang Rare Group, a gamelan orchestra called Angklung here, that won this year’s Baleganjur Music Competition of the province, and of course the country’s must-have, the famous Jegog and its captivating music made from giant bamboos. With great talent, the singer Oka and her band have musically animated the evening alternating with music and traditional dances, playing the last hits of the moment. On the twelve strokes of midnight, greetings were exchanged between the guests while a fireworks was fired from the beach to the delight of the children present … and their parents. All this around a delicious buffet mixing the best Balinese and French specialties. We take this opportunity to thank you for the trust you have shown us for more than 15 years now and wish you and your loved ones a Happy New Year 2018!
