Wonderful Fabric from Bumi Mekepung Puri Dajuma, Beach Eco-Resort & Spa, West Bali

Wonderful Fabric from Bumi Mekepung

Jembrana, the Bali regency where Dajuma is located, is known as “Gumi Makepung” since it owns the one and only bull-race (read Makepung) in Bali. Another thing that makes Jembrana become one of the place that you should visit is the traditional workshop of hand-made fabric. Jembrana has 2 kinds of fabric called Endek and Songket. On the picture is one of our guest Denise who enjoyed practicing the endek weaving, during her half day trip to discover West Bali.
Just don’t forget to bring home one of them as a beautiful souvenir of West Bali next time you decide to visit us!

IDEAL PLACE FOR YOGA

Located in the West part of Bali, renowned for its authenticity and tranquility, Puri Dajuma is the ideal place where to placate and revigorate your body and soul by practicing yoga, meditation or any other ways you prefer.

The second group was Elitsa’s group from Bulgaria, with 19 participant for their first time in Dajuma. They did yoga once a day, and enjoyed a lot our massages at our spa during their spare time. For other groups who would like to come, we are pleased to offer specific arrangements such as ceremonies, special decorations, events, tours, etc.).

COTTAGES RENOVATION

We just completed the renovation of our cottages. Under the direction of Muri (pictured, second from the right) a team of skilled workers have completely renovated – floor-to-ceiling -, bedroom, bathroom and terrace so as to make our cottages even more comfortable. A big change has been made in the bathroom, now open on nature with its freestanding bathtub, its two basins, its suspended toilet, its private garden and its outdoor shower. What a pleasure to take a shower under the stars! Our regular customers have all acclaimed this renovation. We hope you will be of the same opinion during your next stay!

PASSION FRUIT JUST FOR YOU Puri Dajuma, Beach Eco-Resort & Spa, West Bali

PASSION FRUIT JUST FOR YOU

Our guests often refer in their comments to the lush garden of Dajuma, qualified as “manicured garden”. It is not only true for its 1,5 ha which surrounds the villas, but also the case for the private gardens which are facing the entrance of our Bendega villas. The idea came one year and a half ago from our GM Alit to make growing different species, fruit on the West side and flowers on the East side of the Bendega villas. The result after a few months if just astonishing. Can you imagine, when opening the door of your room in the morning, having view on passion fruit, mangoes, papayas and dragon fruits, just for you? On the picture, our colleague Leli checks the maturity of a passion fruit in front of Sari C. Don’t miss it next time you decide to visit us!

CELEBRATION OF DAJUMA TEMPLE Puri Dajuma, Beach Eco-Resort & Spa, West Bali culture bali

CELEBRATION OF DAJUMA TEMPLE

On March 31st, took place an important ceremony at Dajuma, called Piodalan / Puja Wali, aimed at honoring our main temple. Every temple in Bali has its own Piodalan day, based on when the temple was inaugurated. Two references are used to determine the day of the Piodalan, which can be either based on Pawukon (Balinese weekly calendar), in this case the ceremony will be held twice a year or based on Sasih (Saka Calendar) for which the ceremony will be held once a year (mostly on full moon day).
Our lovely temple at Dajuma has its Piodalan on the full moon of the tenth month (Purnama Kedasa) every year and this year it was on 31st March 2018. Piodalan is like anniversary for the temple, its purpose being to keep the balance of the 3 relations which is creates the harmony of the life according to the Tri Hita Karana philosophy: harmony between the human and the God, harmony between the human and environment and harmony between humans themselves. On the pictures, our staff beautifully dressed with ceremony clothes, accompanied by our guests immersed in the heart of the Balinese culture.
