The beauty of sunset at Dajuma is a mesmerizing spectacle, captivating all who are fortunate enough to witness it. With its full West orientation, the sun gracefully descends, casting a warm, golden glow across the landscape. The sky transforms into a canvas of vibrant hues, from fiery oranges to soft pinks, creating a breathtaking panorama which delights our guests. As the sun dips below the horizon, it leaves behind a tranquil silhouette, painting the sea and the sky with a unique palette of colors. The sunset at Dajuma is not just a celestial event; it’s a serene and unforgettable moment that etches itself into the hearts of our guests.
After almost 3 years of stopping, it was time to reconnect with the famous outings of Dajuma staff. Our 42 employees therefore, in debut November, organized an outing in two groups to Banyuwangi and the famous Kawa Ijen volcano. The 2023 vintage was sporty: 3 days in all, devoted to 3 sports activities (the ascent of the volcano, rafting and snorkeling) and of course intense moment of sharing and fun around good tables! To do it again absolutely … without moderation. The well-being and camaraderie of our staff are important to us.
The coconut trees of Dajuma tropical garden stand tall and elegant, their slender trunks swaying gently in the tropical breeze. These trees hold a special place in Bali, not only for their aesthetic value but also for their deep cultural significance. They play an essential role in Balinese cuisine, especially in dishes like “lawar klungah,” where freshly grated coconut is a key ingredient, adding a creamy texture and nutty flavor to the dish. Additionally, coconuts are essential to Balinese cleansing ceremonies known as “Melukat”. The holy water used in these ceremonies often comes from coconuts, symbolizing purity and sacredness.
Coconut trees also offer a wide range of practical uses in Bali. Their leaves are woven into intricate offerings during temple ceremonies, their wood is used in construction, and coir from coconut husks is an indispensable material for crafts and mattresses. Beyond their tangible uses, these trees constitute symbols of abundance and life in Balinese culture, forming an integral part of the island’s identity and daily life.
