DAJUMA WIDELY OPENS ITS DOORS

DAJUMA WIDELY OPENS ITS DOORS

This week, with the unexpected announcement made by Governor Koster to postpone the welcome of foreign tourists until the end of the year, we found some inspiration from history when Winston Churchill said “Never let a good crisis go to waste”!

Why not applying this paradoxical statement to our current situation? This is what we try to do by intensifying our promotion in favor of the domestic market including expatriates at very competitive rates. Our hope was to return slowly but surely to normal after Sept 11th, hope unfortunately nipped in the bud.

So now, let’s open our doors to domestic travellers. West Bali and Dajuma have never been so beautiful and attractive!

FOR BALINESE AND FOR BALI LOVERS - KITES, TRADITIONS, ART AND FUN

FOR BALINESE AND FOR BALI LOVERS: KITES, TRADITIONS, ART AND FUN

Playing kites or “Melayangan” is a tradition going through generations that is assiduously practiced by Balinese people. It is originated from the habits of farmer’s children who spend their time playing in the rice fields. To get rid of boredom while guarding the fields and livestock, they have fun playing kites. In Bali, there is a mythological story of “Rare Angon” or the god of kites. “Rare Angon” is believed by Hindus to be the incarnation of Lord Shiva who has the image of a child while herding buffaloes in the fields, so the kites traditions also called as Rare Angon Traditions.

Traditional Balinese kites are known for their three forms. First, the Be-bean kite. This kite is shaped like a fish, the word Be in be-bean means fish in Balinese.

Second, is the Pecuk Kite. The shape of this kite is simple. Has four corners that are bent and look like leaves. It is called “Pecuk” because in Balinese, pecuk means to bend.

The last is the Janggan kite. This kite is a sacred kite. The shape is very unique, like a dragon which is believed by Balinese people to be like a guardian of the balance and stability of the earth.

Between July – September, anywhere you see the Bali’s sky will beautifully decorated and various shapes of kites. In front of Dajuma everyday you will see children playing with their kites.

Will you play with them next time you visit us?
