Facing the growing success of our Teppannyaki restaurant, our cook team composed of 8 cooks in total decided to expand this particular skill to 2 other colleagues. This is what happened yesterday when our Second Chef Rudi, specialist of Japanese teppanyaki cuisine, (red apron on the picture) transmitted his know-how to Dewi and our First Chef Dedi. Everything is now ready to welcome you anytime in the week in our Sinta lounge for a delicious dinner in the Japanese way!
With the Bendega villas extension of Dajuma in 2016, our Rama restaurant needed more space what we did with an outside terrace particularly appreciated by our guests because of its proximity with the sea. From there we have breathtaking views on sunsets and a gentle breeze from the sea. This year we decided to put a hat on it. But not an ordinary one: we chose the shape, depending on your imagination, of a banana or a leaf fallen down from the tree or a turtle shell. Some others can think of a Toraja roof. Anyway, the job has been performed by a skilled team of 6 workers headed by our old friend Selamat (green shirt on the picture). Not easy to realize such a complex roof but Selamat did it! Congratulations!
Julia and Mariia have been our guests the last 2 weeks, part of a Yoga group of 12 people coming from all over Europe. They particularly appreciated their stay with us and formulated an unusual request: planting 2 trees in the garden what our staff organised with great pleasure. This is what is shown on the picture: an already tall Araucaria for Julia and a young coconut for Mariia. Both trees will be happy to have your visit next year!
This year again, Dajuma celebrated the New Year in a very festive way. More than 80 guests enjoyed the New Year Eve with 3 orchestras (Jegog, Gamelan and Western Live), a pantagruelic buffet including, beside other dishes, the famous “babi guling” and delicious desserts prepared by our kitchen team under the attentive supervision of our 2 Chefs, Dedi and Rudi. The decoration theme this year was “nature”. All our staff participated in the preparation of very nice decorative items including a splendid Garuda entirely made of bamboo and palm leaves. The kitchen stands and the stage were also decorated with natural leaves. On the 12th stroke of midnight, everybody was happy to exchange their wishes for 2020 under the stars and a beautiful firework. We wish you a very happy, healthy and exciting year 2020!
This week Dajuma had the privilege to welcome a delegation of the Ministry of Finances of Indonesia, who came inaugurating a “Banana Farm” in the 1200 ha Pulukan state plantation, close by Dajuma. Initiated by the Governor of Bali, this project is aimed at producing the Cavendish banana specy which is particularly appreciated by export markets. All conditions for getting the best quality are fulfilled in this part fo the island: a rich and fertile volcanic ground, a hot and humid climate and a good irrigation system. But it is also a challenge because this specy is threatened since the early 90s by the “Panama disease”, unfortunately all around the world now. Hopefully this one will not hamper this beautiful project. On the picture the representatives of the authorities ready to plant the first specimen.
