This week, a delegation of the staff of Dajuma went to congratulate Zikin and Nisa Melinda on their marriage celebrated in the Muslim tradition. Zikin is part of the dynamic and inventive team of our gardeners since early 2019. He managed to seduce the lovely Nisa Melinda who lives in the neighboring village of Pulukan. Our best wishes of health and happiness to the newlyweds!
This week a major event occurred near Dajuma, at the very sacred temple of Rambut Siwi, the famous temple of the lock of hair. Event that only takes place every 38 years called “Kaya Agung Menawa Ratna” and which is supposed to remind humans we are that we live in a finite world where health and prosperity are not a given. Message that takes all its value in this period of pandemic. Usually many to celebrate this event together, this time the Balinese had to stay at home and pray with their families to prevent the spread of variants of the virus.
When you are on vacation or on a weekend in Dajuma, everything is done to help you unwind and discover new ways of living, closer to nature and people. Among all the possibilities for a change of scenery offered by the hotel, there is the ritual of the floating breakfast, particularly appreciated by our customers. This is what our loyal customers Clément and Amanda had the pleasure of sharing at sunrise in the Bendega swimming pool, served by our lovely Leli. An original and relaxing way to have breakfast, isn’t it? Just try next time you visit us.
