The art of floral decoration is practiced on all occasions by all Balinese families. On festive occasions, it takes a special turn with these majestic “panjors” that adorn the roadsides everywhere in Bali. In Dajuma, this beautiful tradition is perpetuated every day, everywhere in the resort with its magnificent flowery basins. In the restaurant each table receives a bouquet that is changed regularly according to the mood of our staff. It brings to the meal a touch of color and scent that enchants our guests. Also regularly, we organize floral decoration workshops where our guests learn how to create complex floral compositions, which combine flowers, wood and bamboo. An experience we would be happy to offer you on the occasion of your next stay!
When we go on vacation to the other side of the world, we attach a lot of importance, and rightly so, to the quality of the beaches of the hotel we have chosen: is it sand or rocks, clean and well maintained, is it light (coral) or dark (volcanic) sand? Dajuma, being located on a cape which is discovered at low tide for several hundred meters, is lucky to be surrounded by 3 very different beaches for all tastes: to the east, more than 20 km of fine sandy beaches almost virgin suitable for walking and jogging, to the west, the ocean is much calmer and a large sandy beach shared with local fishermen is suitable for swimming and body boarding. Between the two is the protective cape with its natural pots and corals which are discovered at low tide, a true paradise for children.
Now the question that often comes up: is the sand coral or volcanic? Well the answer is “both”. Indeed, depending on the tides and the times of the year, the ocean brings back either coral sand as shown in the photo, or volcanic sand, even softer to the feet and shining with a thousand lights.
Other questions that come up often: are they clean and what about sunsets? The answer is absolutely yes in both cases, because every day they are thoroughly cleaned by our staff. It is part of our eco-policy. The orientation of Dajuma being due west the sunsets are magnificent.
Last point to emphasize specific to Dajuma, we offer our guests massages on the beach in direct contact with the volcanic rock loaded with trace elements. Followed by a visit to the hammam and the hot tub of our spa, they guarantee you a perfect fitness! Welcome to our exciting Balinese beaches!
A few kilometers from Dajuma, in the sumptuous mountains of West Bali National Park, is a waterfall particularly appreciated by our guests. Its name – Jeruk Manis – is already very evocative because it means “Sweet oranges” in Bahasa Indonesia. It can be reached in 30 minutes by crossing magnificent plantations and enjoying breathtaking views of the Indian ocean. In a green setting, you can then cool off in prestine water without other neighbours than the fantastic nature of Bali. Another unique Dajuma’s escapade not to be missed on your next stay!
This morning, Sunday Sept 5th, we took a chance to capture a beautiful moment of Hensby’s family who had picnic breakfast in our garden. Our staff always tries to surprise our guests. Last time was with the “floating beakfast” in the pool and this time is with the “pick nick breakfast” in the garden. With their two adorable kids, Luna and Jack Mr and Mrs Hensby enjoyed this new way of savoring a breakfast and to celebrate the Australian Father’s day. Just try it next time!
