There is also another way to discover Bali: simply by visiting the villages and more precisely the village schools. By talking to villagers, teachers and students, you can learn a lot about social life in Bali today. This is what is offered to our guests in a tour entitled “Village life and rice farming”: after a long bike ride in the rice fields and a rice farming exercise in real size, they are invited to visit a village and its primary school. A very interesting moment of sharing. As the photo shows, 4 of our guests made it last week and came back absolutely delighted!
Last week we had the pleasure of welcoming a yoga retreat led by Mary Bue from Minneapolis. As stated on her website (marybue.com) “Mary is a songwriter, Nada yogi, traveler, runner, vegan, retreat guide, music and yoga teacher, often traveling this beautiful world. Named best songwriter of 2020 by City Pages, her music addresses sacred subjects and a deep concern for the environment. Her latest album The World is Your Lover was released in 2020 to rave reviews from around the world.”
Last night they celebrated the end of the retreat with a Teppanyaki dinner hosted by our Senior Chef Dedi. And we will have the pleasure of welcoming her again in March 2023 for another yoga retreat. Not to be missed! (http://marybue.com/Bali2023).
Why not take advantage of a holiday in Bali to learn to surf? It is a sporting discipline that transcends the body through direct contact with an environment to which we are not accustomed: the ocean and generates a lot of adrenaline. In Dajuma all the conditions are met for you to discover it. An instructor, son of local fishermen who has been surfing since childhood. A fine sand beach in front of the hotel with long waves ideal for beginners. For the experienced, a free shuttle takes you to the famous Medewi surf spot in about ten minutes. And then surfers and boards can earn a well-deserved rest!
With the beginning of the rainy season, nature in Bali is cleaning up: the flow of the rivers increases enormously and leads to the sea a lot of dead wood which is a blessing for the villagers who use it in the kitchen but not only. Indeed, many pieces of wood have very beautiful shapes and essences that excite the creativity of Balinese artists. Thus are born real works particularly popular with tourists, decorative or utilitarian objects according to their inspiration.
