At the beginning, Lucas planned to do the self quarantine at Dajuma from December 29th, 2020 to January 13th, 2021. But when they arrived in Jakarta coming from Singapore, the authorities asked them to do a first quarantine period of 5 days, with 2 PCR tests at the beginning and at the end of the period. All the results being negative, they were allowed to enter Bali on January 1st, 2021 and come to Dajuma to start a new quarantine.

Lucas and family staid for 15 days, they said that they really enjoy their stay with us. They particularly loved the good atmosphere, the quietness and the space, just perfect for quarantine. Elan also liked our tropical garden and the pool slide. They said they will come back. We wish you all the best in your new life in Bali!

RESTORATION OF OUR MONUMENT BOAT

RESTORATION OF OUR MONUMENT BOAT

All our customers know the monument to the glory of Colonel N’Gurah Rai who landed on the beach in front of Dajuma in 1946 to fight and prepare for the independence of Indonesia. Due to its position in the submerged area at high tide of the beach, this iconic monument suffers daily assaults from the ocean and must be regularly repaired. This is what happened last week. Our team of masons-artists has completely restored this beautiful monument to the delight of the surrounding villagers and our guests. Nice work guys!

CHSE CERTIFICATION IN PROGRESS AT DAJUMA

CHSE CERTIFICATION IN PROGRESS AT DAJUMA

The Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy (Kemenparekraf) recently invited business players in the tourism sector to register for the CHSE Certification program (Cleanliness, Health, Safety & Environment Sustainability).
This new CHSE certification scheme serves as a guarantee for tourists and the public that the products and services provided meet hygiene, health, safety and environmental sustainability protocols. It is one of the strategies to face a period of adaptation to new habits in the tourism and creative economy sector.
After previously Dajuma had received a New Normal Adaptation certificate from the Jembrana Regent, now Dajuma has also registered in the Ministry of Tourism’s Creative Economy CHSE certification program.
On Monday, the officer conducted an audit of the requirements that the hotel must fulfill in order to obtain the certificate. From the results of the audit carried out, in the near future we will receive the certificate. It is one step further in favor of the protection of our natural and human environnement that we are particularly happy to achieve!
