Who has never dreamed, as a child, of learning how to make magnificent wood carvings? This is what Dajuma offers its customers, once a week. Under the guidance of a master sculptor who graduated from the Tabanan sculpture school, children and parents alike are welcome to learn the precise gestures of this ancestral Balinese art. The smile of our young guest in the photo says a lot about the pleasure he had in transforming an ordinary piece of wood into a beautiful sculpture. Other workshops of the same type are offered to our customers, among others, floral decorations, cooking lessons, learning the art of Balinese dance, massages, yoga (https://www.dajuma.com/e-library/#activities–tours).
Last week, Dajuma had the pleasure of welcoming two exceptional men Mike Brumby and Lukas Gallu (On the photo around Rondy) who have just accomplished an incredible challenge, that of touring the island of Bali paddling on SUP boards on almost 243 nautical miles or about 450 km.
Our colleagues Rondy and Dina had the opportunity to interview them in order to understand the ins and outs of this challenge. For them, the primary motivation was to campaign for the importance of protecting the ocean, especially the coral. Stopping over each evening, they also visited some schools to educate the younger generation on protecting the ocean and keeping it clean of waste. On this occasion they introduced SUP to the students of the school. This challenge also aimed to raise 20 millions rupiahs for the Coral Triangle Center, which focuses on ocean conservation. They chose Bali because of its commitment to sustainability and the protection of its natural environment. Mike plans to take on more SUP challenges in the future. Well done guys!
Due to its location on the edge of the West Bali National Park, Dajuma is the ideal starting point for mountain bike rides, for all tastes and levels. The less experienced will choose the small roads that wind along the seashore in the middle of the rice fields. The more athletic will prefer the steep roads and paths of the national park. This is what our client and friend from Australia Sandy chose last week with her large family as pictured. These excursions are accompanied by Jupry our Beach and Tours supervisor. All allow you a close contact with the generous nature of Bali and also with its inhabitants always happy to speak with you when you cross their villages. Welcome whenever you want!
Among its many assets, Dajuma has the advantage of sumptuous sunsets that can be admired, cocktail in hand, from your room or in the tropical garden. Thanks to its location on a volcanic cape facing due west, the sunsets are visible all year round without restriction. The past week has been particularly favorable from this point of view, with each evening a different kind of conflagration of the sky, very inspiring. Enjoy it!
