Last week Dajuma received a most glowing rating from Booking.com, based on more than 130 verified customer testimonials, with 9.8/10 for its villas and 9.4/10 for its suites and cottages, respectively. This outstanding result is particularly appreciated in this difficult period of the pandemic and rewards the exceptional qualities of our staff. Since 2002 Dajuma has been advocating a quality hotel business based on the 3 Balinese principles of the Tri Hita Karana philosophy: harmony with the Gods, harmony with nature and the environment, harmony between humans. We are happy that these principles are shared with our customers and friends and are reflected today in this outstanding rating from Booking.com!
Last week, our entire hotel staff, i.e. 45 people, received a third injection of the Astrazeneca vaccine. It is part of the Indonesian health policy to protect the population as much as possible and thus prepare for economic recovery. With a dependence on tourism close to 80% of GDP, the island of Bali has been particularly affected by the pandemic, forcing many players to convert to other activities, mainly agricultural. After 2 years of health crisis, the Balinese today dream of returning to normal living conditions. May this 3rd injection speed up the process. In the photo, Tini, both yogi and manager of our Spa, receives the 3rd dose from the hands of a soldier in a place specially organized for this.
What could be more enjoyable than discovering Bali by bike? This is what we offer our guests from Dajuma for excursions from the quietest to the most sporty. One of the most popular with our clients is the Tembles Bike Tour. You leave Dajuma around 8am in our adventure jeep, bikes in the back. After a 30-minute drive, you reach a traditional Balinese village called Tembles which is the starting point for your bike ride along the rice fields. You will visit the House of Jegog (traditional West Bali music), the village primary school, the traditional market and the very sacred Rambut Siwi temple at the end. About 4 hours. A perfect activity to keep you in shape and discover an authentic Bali.
Once again, on the occasion of the New Year, our former customers and friends Bruce and Frances were kind enough to offer our staff a package containing among otherthings, rice, egg, oil and some treats for the kids, the latter one at the request of their own grandchildren! A nice gift that delights the 45 families of our staff!
They already helped us in 2020, when no one imagined for a moment that the pandemic would still be active until now. Yet this is what happened!
A huge thank you dear Bruce and Frances for this generous gesture! We look forward to seeing you again soon!
Another “annus horribilis” has just ended. A year ago, when we exchanged vows, who could have imagined for a second that the pandemic would last this long. In this unprecedented context, it is very difficult to predict anything for 2022. Thanks to its staff and loyal customers, Dajuma has nevertheless managed to weather the crisis without damage and to view the new year in a more favorable light. We are therefore ready to welcome you in our little paradise in the best conditions of comfort and safety. This day, we are also happy to celebrate the retirement of Sabtu (first row 3rd from the left, white cap) after 19 years spent at Dajuma as a kitchen supervisor. We wish you Dear Sabtu a beautiful and happy retirement as active as possible!
On behalf of all our staff, we wish you a Happy and Healthy New Year 2022. We dream of seeing you again soon!
