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.

Among all activities offered by Dajuma (https://www.dajuma.com/e-library/#activities–tours), there is one which is particularly appreciated by our guests: the ecotourism tour. It is a unique ecotourism experience that showcases the breathtaking natural beauty of the island. An amazing trip in our 4WD Jeep around Pulukan Ecotourism State Plantation of Pekutatan village (1181 ha) where you will discover rubber trees, coconut and banana plantations, clove and vanilla trees. The process to make palm sugar is shown and explained to you. Cherry on the cake, as shown on the picture, the tour ends in paradise with a lunch taken at 300 m elevation with a panoramic view on the jungle and the ocean.
Last week we were happy to introduce in our Tours’ Catalog a new interesting excursion which is definitively “off the beaten tracks”. Take a look: you leave Dajuma around 9 a.m. in the direction of Gilimanuk, the extreme western tip of the Bali national park which is also the port of embarkation for Java. After an hour’s drive, you discover a small cove bordering the Gilimanuk mangroves where a traditional fishing boat awaits you for a trip of about 2 hours. You learn how mangrove trees can survive in salt water, and how the mangrove is also a paradise for birds. Then you are invited to snorkel above untouched corals. It will bent be time to return to the starting point where a seafood lunch prepared by the local waurung awaits you. On the way back to Dajuma you will be offered several stops: visit the famous starling bird endemic to Bali, very rare, and another in Negara at the weaving museum.
The battle for the environment has very seriously resumed in Bali, after 2 and a half years of pandemic without customers and therefore without means. This is how Dajuma was able to offer 6 bins to the temple of Rambut Siwi to collect and recycle as much as possible of the waste left by the many visitors. Rambut Siwi Temple is indeed very sacred in Bali and visited by thousands of devotees every year. Its exceptional location on a rocky outcrop overlooking the sea also makes it a tourist hotspot, particularly appreciated for its sunsets. A must visit during your next stay in Dajuma!
Due to its location on the edge of the West Bali National Park, Dajuma is the ideal starting point for mountain bike rides, for all tastes and levels. The less experienced will choose the small roads that wind along the seashore in the middle of the rice fields. The more athletic will prefer the steep roads and paths of the national park. This is what our client and friend from Australia Sandy chose last week with her large family as pictured. These excursions are accompanied by Jupry our Beach and Tours supervisor. All allow you a close contact with the generous nature of Bali and also with its inhabitants always happy to speak with you when you cross their villages. Welcome whenever you want!
If you haven’t seen this incredible show yet, be sure to do so the next time you visit us, because it’s so worth it. 25 km from Dajuma, in a verdant setting of rice paddies by the sea at Delod Berawah, imagine a gathering of specially bred – one should rather say pampered – buffaloes ready to compete in a race led by fearless jockeys encouraged by a joyful and colorful crowd. It is this typical tradition of West Bali that our clients Henning and Inez have chosen to discover this last Sunday. A nice souvenir of holidays to immortalize in unforgettable photos.
Part of the Merapi Mountains in East Java is the fascinating Kawah Ijen Volcano towering 2769m above sea level. It is particularly famous because many television channels have popularized its miners who directly extract sulfur from the bottom of the volcano and transport it with 50 to 70 kg on their shoulders through steep paths. Moreover, its crater lake is the largest acidic lake in the world with a strange milky turquoise color. A very interesting place easy to visit from Dajuma if you are not afraid to wake up early in the morning. Because the discovery of the breathing of the earth at sunrise, with its blue flames is just incredible. This excursion also gives us the opportunity, for those who wish, to help materially by a donation the families of miners whose life expectancy does not exceed 40 to 50 years. That’s what our hosts, the Lippay family, did a few days ago. A wonderful souvenir to bring back to Europe!
With its 3142 meters above sea level, the sacred Mount Agung is one of the very active volcanoes of Indonesia with 5 eruptions recorded since 2017. Indonesia thus has 77 active volcanoes of type A (i.e. with a recent history of eruptions) out of 130 in total. Climbing Mount Agung is a real challenge because its ascent from Besakhi temple requires 6 to 7 hours of sustained physical effort on difficult trails. However, this is what our client Heiko from Germany has chosen to do this week, a trek that is particularly close to his heart. Well done Heiko!
What could be more enjoyable than discovering Bali by bike? This is what we offer our guests from Dajuma for excursions from the quietest to the most sporty. One of the most popular with our clients is the Tembles Bike Tour. You leave Dajuma around 8am in our adventure jeep, bikes in the back. After a 30-minute drive, you reach a traditional Balinese village called Tembles which is the starting point for your bike ride along the rice fields. You will visit the House of Jegog (traditional West Bali music), the village primary school, the traditional market and the very sacred Rambut Siwi temple at the end. About 4 hours. A perfect activity to keep you in shape and discover an authentic Bali.
Because of its unique location straight on the beach, Dajuma offers a variety of sea activities. On top of the list, of course, comes surfing with the famous Medewi spot next door and its long left hand wave. Fishing offshore with the local fishermen is another one particularly apreciated by our guests. Bodyboarding in the waves is very easy to practice and brings a lot of pleasure to everybody from 7 to 77 years old! Stand-up paddle, sailing and kayaking are also 3 ways of discovering the sea in a different way.
On the picture, for their first time in Bali, Ludwig and Vanessa from Germany during their 7 nights stay with us, did some excursions to explore West Bali and decided to try our sea kayak. They enjoyed a lot!
