FIRST RAIN IN BALI: A BLESSING FOR FARMERS AND OUR GUESTS

This year, Indonesia including Bali, had a longer dry season than usual. In West Bali, where we are located, most of the villagers are farmers. Their fields were dry, some of their crops, mainly rice and vegetables, suffered from the longer dry season. Everybody was expecting the rain to come soon. Finally, it happened in the beginning of November. We saw villagers around us so happy and grateful to be able to celebrate the first rain. This period of the year is also a blessing for our guests: for a few moments of rain mainly during the night, they get in return an even more beautiful nature. In our tropical garden the flowers are blooming like never. The clouds in the sky also create breathtaking sunsets, lasting for much longer than during the dry season. Something you should not miss next time you decide to visit us in the coming weeks!

“OPEN-BED” NEW PROCEDURE AT DAJUMA

Great start for Dajuma this year with a new procedure aimed at improving the comfort of our guests. Every day, around 6:00 p.m. our housekeeping staff prepares the beds of our guests by adjusting and cleaning sheets and pillows and installing if necessary the mosquito net after having checked the absence of insects inside. At the end, some frangipani flowers are disposed on the bed, bringing their delicate fragrance. A good way to have a revigorating night in a fresh and fragrant atmosphere! The feedbacks from our guests are excellent. On the picture Imam in action.

RAINY SEASON STARTED IN BALI

The rainy season in Bali is used to last from November to March with sometimes incursions in the dry season and vice-versa. This year the rainy season starts on time to the great joy of farmers and gardeners! But the questions often asked by our guests willing to visit Bali are “Is it worthwile to visit Bali during the rainy season? How strong is the rain? How long every day? Is’nt it too wet?” Legitimate questions when they are going to spend hours in a plane to get here! First of all we have to keep in mind that raining in Bali has nothing to do with heavy rain we can meet in some South East Asia countries such as Thaïland. In Bali, there is no monsoon. The answer is also very depending on where you plan to stay in Bali. Close to the mountains you will get more rain than on the coast. In Dajuma, the rain falls only a few hours every day, often in the night and the consequences on the nature and your stay are more than positive: flowers blooming and green grass everywhere in the garden, no dust, wetness limited by the breeze from the sea, and, cherry on the cake, contrasted skies offering breathtaking sunsets as shown on the picture. What could we dream of better?

HONEY MOON AND PLUS

Dajuma welcomes every year many honeymooners and other guests celebrating specific events. One must say that the location as well as the garden of the resort are particularly suited for celebrations : nice rooms delicately decorated with flowers, romantic dinners in the garden or on the beach and a lot of attention of our staff,  all this creates a warm atmosphere around the guests who celebrate their honeymoon or another important anniversary.  On the picture, a nice decoration made of natural flowers  gently disposed on the bed awaits honeymooners in their room. You should try!

The tradition of floral decoration in Bali

One of the most fascinating tradition in Bali is the preparation of decorative arrangements, generally made from flowers, bamboo and palm leaves. Everybody in a Balinese family is skilled enough to invent these decorations sometimes very complex. They are used as offerings to the Gods and decoration in the temples and houses.
Dajuma staff does not escape this beautiful tradition. Every day, our staff collects flowers in the garden and prepares nice floral decorations which enchants our guests, especially honeymooners!
Here on the picture, Setha from Germany made this beautiful decoration, trained by Erly our HR Manager.
