3rd DOSE OF VACCINE DONE

Last week, our entire hotel staff, i.e. 45 people, received a third injection of the Astrazeneca vaccine. It is part of the Indonesian health policy to protect the population as much as possible and thus prepare for economic recovery. With a dependence on tourism close to 80% of GDP, the island of Bali has been particularly affected by the pandemic, forcing many players to convert to other activities, mainly agricultural. After 2 years of health crisis, the Balinese today dream of returning to normal living conditions. May this 3rd injection speed up the process. In the photo, Tini, both yogi and manager of our Spa, receives the 3rd dose from the hands of a soldier in a place specially organized for this.

DAJUMA WIDELY OPENS ITS DOORS

This week, with the unexpected announcement made by Governor Koster to postpone the welcome of foreign tourists until the end of the year, we found some inspiration from history when Winston Churchill said “Never let a good crisis go to waste”!

Why not applying this paradoxical statement to our current situation? This is what we try to do by intensifying our promotion in favor of the domestic market including expatriates at very competitive rates. Our hope was to return slowly but surely to normal after Sept 11th, hope unfortunately nipped in the bud.

So now, let’s open our doors to domestic travellers. West Bali and Dajuma have never been so beautiful and attractive!

DAJUMA CERTIFIED BY HEALTH AUTHORITIES

This week, to complete our July 20th post, Dajuma officially received from the Indonesian authorities a certificate of compliance attesting the respect of hygiene rules all around the resort, aimed at protecting our guests and our staff from the covid 19.

The return to normal is now approaching. Being announced by the Governor of Bali for September 11th with the reopening of Bali Airport to international flights, it was essential to reinforce our internal hygiene rules by following all the recommendations of the Ministry of Health and the World Health Organisation.

As already explained in our July 20th post, they consist in 6 main measures: hands washing with hydroalcoholic gel, face masks, spray of disinfectant on luggages, check of body temperature, health screening form to be filled during check-in and physical distancing.

A little paradise which becomes safer than ever! When are you back? Airline tickets have never been so cheap!

HELP-COVID CAMPAIGN STATUS

After only 4 weeks, our “Help Covid” campaign has collected 160 MRp (10711 €)  from 63 contributors including 6895 € via Paypal and 57 MRp by direct transfer on our bank account. Our commitment is to transform your contribution into a credit on your next stay with a 30% bonus.

On top of that our staff also received big rice bags from Melinda, Andrew, Angela and Wolfram.

One million thanks for your generosity. It helps a lot Dajuma going through this terrible pandemic.

Let’s dream we will celebrate together the return to normal soon!

AN INTERESTING NEW CONCEPT CALLED « NEW NORMAL »

Last week, the Balinese authorities have inaugurated an interesting new concept called « new normal » supposed to succeed to the Corona virus pandemic. It consists of a set of procedures to be applied by all hotels in Bali. It combines both new individual hygiene behaviours with some specific equipment. Among the most important ones are the masks (both face and plexiglass ones), the hydro-alcoholic distributors, the new social greetings, the physical distancing, the body temperature control and a new equipment installed in the parking area consisting in a sink where everybody (guests and staff) entering Dajuma must deeply wash their hands.

At Dajuma, since the beginning in March, we already applied most of these « new normal » procedures ensuring the best protection of the health of our staff and our guests. After 16 weeks of practice and fine-tuning we can now say that we are totally ready for the « new normal », hoping that it will come soon.

We selected some pictures illustrating these changes.

Welcome again at Dajuma in a safe and secure environment which does not hamper the legendary Balinese zest for life!
