Buffalo races, locally called Makepung in West Bali are a thrilling spectacle that captivates both locals and tourists alike. These races showcase the unique cultural heritage of the region and the special bond between the farmers and their buffaloes. The thunderous sound of hooves pounding the ground and the adrenaline-filled atmosphere make for an unforgettable experience. Witnessing these majestic creatures galloping with grace and power is a testament to the rich traditions of Bali. Not to be missed next time you visit us. They are at only 30 mn drive from Dajuma.
Dajuma, with its pristine shoreline, highlights the importance of beach cleanup. As shown on the photo, our staff, aided by some of our guests, work tirelessly to maintain the beauty of this coastal gem. Through regular beach cleanup initiatives, they ensure that plastic debris is removed, the ecosystem is preserved and marine life is protected. Dajuma’s commitment to a clean beach environment sets an inspiring example to visitors and neighboring communities in promoting sustainability and responsible tourism. Together we can make a significant difference in preserving the natural wonders of Dajuma for future generations.
With a fishing village a Dajuma stone throw, it is natural to want to fish during your stay with us. This is what happened last week for our loyal customers, the Greg family (George and his son Ben). Starting at 6 am on a traditional Praho with our beach supervisor Jupri, they returned a few hours later with 2 beautiful fish called Diamond Trevally or Mirror Fish as shown in the photo. They said that was the beginner’s luck. They gave one of the fish to Jupry and for the other one, they asked our chief to cook him for their dinner. Well done guys for this beautiful fishing!
Practicing yoga at Puri Dajuma offers numerous benefits for both the mind and body. The peaceful surroundings, with the sound of the ocean waves and lush greenery, create an ideal atmosphere for relaxation and introspection.
Since last week, we offer to our guests a free yoga session every Thursday at 11 am. Led by our yogi Tini who is well-versed in various yoga styles, it will help improving your flexibility, balance, and strength while also reducing stress, anxiety, and depression.

Overall, practicing yoga at Puri Dajuma can have a profound impact on your physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being. Just try it next time you visit us: you will not be disappointed!
Among all the on-site activities offered by the hotel (yoga, surfing, body-boarding, fishing, sailing, trekking, floral decoration, cooking classes, traditional dances, massages, etc.) there is one particularly appreciated by our guests: the wood carving.
On the photo our carver, very surrounded by an assistance of adults and children, all captivated by the precision of the gestures and the result obtained, for example these beautiful Balinese doors. The young boy in front of the carver is also carving, by imitating the gestures of the carver. Try it the next time you visit us: you won’t be disappointed!
