Our guests who love surfing the Medewi wave, the longest left wave in the world with almost 500 meters long, have the choice to get there either by foot along the beach (20 min) or by car (10 min). A free shuttle service is offered to them on demand. On the picture, Juergen with the surfboard, Scott and Laurel from USA enjoy a lot this service, by combining every day, surf at Medewi and relax and wellness at Dajuma.
Close to Dajuma, is the State Plantation of Pulukan which is one of the preferred eco-tours of our guests. Imagine a huge 1200 ha area planted with all sorts of trees: coconut, coffee, cacao, clove trees, and the most popular, rubber trees from which the sap is extracted and treated on site in a workshop.
Our guests enjoy this 4 hours tour by 4WD jeep and by foot. It ends on top of the plantation by a revigorating lunch with a breathtaking view of the ocean. On the picture, Jeremie and Vanina from France with their guides Mertha and Sumawa, were offered rubber bracelets which present this astonishing property to automatically solder when you join their extremities. A small souvenir of a great moment of sharing with Mother Nature!
Like everywhere in the world, Indonesia celebrated last week the end of the Ramadan, called Idul Fitri in this country. After one month of fasting, our muslim staff was happy to celebrate this important event by visiting neighbors and family, exchanging gifts and wishes. A great moment of sharing!

Many thanks to our last month guest Kristin from Australia for her appreciation on Trip advisor about Dajuma highlights and “the most beautiful garden I have seen in Bali”!
It is true all the gardeners team around Yuliartha, as a charismatic leader, is proud to create day after day a real outside work of art. In more than 1,5 ha they cultivate with passion a wide variety of trees, plants and flowers, using natural compost made on site from our kitchen garbage. When strolling along the paths, our guests are always astonished and enchanted to discover a rainbow of colors and delicate scents: orchids, frangipani, bougainvilliers, heliconya, soka are some examples of them. But often comes up the question: what is the name of this flower, plant or tree? The solution was to label each and every of our species (70 different in total) with bamboo signs through-out the property. It is what has been done last week, the new bamboo signs replacing the old ones made from aluminium which were in place for more than 15 years. Visitors and guests can continue to learn and enjoy about the extraordinary diversity of the Balinese flora.
