A 20-year journey through fascinating and wild West Bali! This is what we celebrated with our staff a few days ago on the occasion of Christmas 2022. A nice moment of sharing, very touching, most of our staff working for Dajuma from the start. After the traditional speech, each member of staff received a gift and a package for their family. and started tasting the famous Babi Guling (for Hindus) and goat sate for Muslims. It was not only the celebration of our 20 years of existence but also that of our rebirth after 2.5 years of Covid crisis, making everyone so happy!
This week we witnessed an astonishing natural spectacle that gave us food for thought: the sacred Talipot palm tree that marks the location of the temple of our hotel has decided to bloom, but not just any flowering. This one is exceptionally large and magnificent at nearly 12m in height. As if nature also wanted to celebrate this end of the year with us. The most believers among us also see it as a sign from the gods. Anyway, it is one more curiosity in our garden that we invite you to come and discover. See you soon!
Last week we had the pleasure of hosting a new Yoga retreat organized by Mimi for participants from all over Australia. A week of intensive practice combining physical exercises and meditation. Which didn’t prevent the group from also having a good time, as evidenced by their last evening in front of a wood fire on the beach!
Last week, an unusual event took place in Dajuma: the Annual Forum of Development Planning Agencies of the 8 Regencies of Bali + 1 Municipality of Denpasar. Each regency in Bali alternately hosts this annual event. Nearly 100 people exchanged their experiences over two days based on a performance evaluation by the Bali government and central government team. The top three regencies with the best development plans have been announced in this forum. Karangasem in third place, Denpasar in second place and Klungkung in first place. The next forum will take place in Bangli Regency. On the last night of the forum, the Jembrana committee organized the farewell party with Jegog performances and live music.
