Praho under repair in Dajuma

PRAHO UNDER REPAIR IN DAJUMA

This week, we would like to introduce you to our fishing village located right next to Dajuma. Many families make a living from this activity with daily sea fishing departures, very often at night. Our fishing enthusiasts often embark with them in the early morning and return a few hours later with great catches. Due to the pandemic, the boat that takes them has been at rest for months and its owner Mr. Sipriadi took the opportunity to give it a facelift: a few small leaks have been repaired, the paintwork completely redone and the bamboo floats replaced. The hull of the boat is carved in one piece from a hibiscus tiliaceus (waru tree) while the outriggers come from a particular species of bamboo called Petung bamboo. The repairs will have lasted a month and it is a completely renovated boat with undeniable charm that awaits you for your next fishing trip!

NYEPI IS COMING SOON

NYEPI IS COMING SOON

Nyepi is fast approaching. On March 15th a new year will begin in Bali, preceded by the famous “day of silence”. It is celebrated every Isakawarsa (Saka New Year) according to the Balinese calendar. It is a day of silence, fasting and meditation for the Balinese. A lot of rituals are part of the celebration of Nyepi Day. The most famous is Ogoh-ogoh and the Melasti (purification ceremony). Because of the pandemic, the celebration of Nyepi has been restricted, all the ritual must be done by a limited number of persons, people cannot get involved and must pray from their family temple. Despite these restrictions, Nyepi remains a major moment in Balinese life and a fascinating experience for foreigners visiting Bali. Dajuma is the perfect place where to celebrate Nyepi. We prepared a specific package which will help you discovering this so special tradition, unique in the world.
Happy Nyepi Day and Happy New Year Saka 1943.
