Dajuma had the pleasure of hosting the Australian International School Bali Camp from June 26th to 28th. A merry band of 36 3rd and 4th year students supervised by 6 teachers took part in the camp, which aims to train students in independence through all kinds of activities, such as painting, quiz nights, beach cleaning and many more organized by the teachers. The hotel has also been put to use by organizing other activities such as rice cultivation with visits to local schools, introduction to Balinese floral decorations and traditional dances. Everyone really enjoyed the camp and we had great feedback from the teachers who said it was the best camp they had ever had.

Last week, Dajuma had the pleasure of welcoming a delightful mother and her daughter who used to stay with us often. This is the place they have chosen to celebrate a birthday on June 9th. The mother asked our staff to organize a surprise birthday with special decoration in the room and in the restaurant. What our staff hastened to do with their legendary good humour. Happy birthday!
Last week, we welcomed a very nice retreat group from Latvia for 6 nights, made up of 16 participants guided by Ilona. Among many activities, the particularly appreciated respiratory therapy. They gave good feedback, everyone loved their stay, one of the ladies even said that they were treated like queens. Such touching words are the best reward for our staff!
There is also another way to discover Bali: simply by visiting the villages and more precisely the village schools. By talking to villagers, teachers and students, you can learn a lot about social life in Bali today. This is what is offered to our guests in a tour entitled “Village life and rice farming”: after a long bike ride in the rice fields and a rice farming exercise in real size, they are invited to visit a village and its primary school. A very interesting moment of sharing. As the photo shows, 4 of our guests made it last week and came back absolutely delighted!
This week we had the great pleasure of welcoming the Oliver-Williams family from Australia. The idea came to reproduce the same scene that had taken place during their previous stay in 2017, in this case a training on the floral decorations so widespread in Bali. Thing said thing done! It’s very touching to see in these photos the change of little girls who become teenagers surrounded by their always so radiant mother!
Among the many Bali discovery activities offered by the hotel, there is one particularly appreciated by our guests: the rice farming experience. That’s what the UK’s Marsden family chose to do last week in a rice field located a few km from Dajuma. Welcomed by local farmers belonging to the family of one of our employees, they discovered how Balinese farmers go about cultivating rice, from plowing the rice field with a special ox-drawn plow to installing rice plants, all in a good mood! They enjoyed a lot this so unusual experience. Why don’t you try it next time you visit us?
This week, we had the pleasure of welcoming Sophie and Damien who stayed with us for 10 days. Among our various activities, they particularly appreciated the Balinese dance entertainment. For years we have supported the school of traditional dances of Pekutatan where young and talented dancers practice this beautiful art on our stage. Every week we welcome dancers during their rehearsals. On this occasion, our customers are invited to discover the symbolism of the gestures and the complex movements of these thousand-year-old dances. We are very happy that Sophie and Damien enjoyed them.
This week, we had the pleasant surprise to receive a very nice message from Poland. It was sent to us by Professor of Cardiac Surgery Pawel Tomaszewscy and his wife Ewa who stayed with us for 12 nights in May. Let him do the talking: “Last night, after 28 hours of travel, we returned home with pleasure. We would like to thank you once again for a truly a truly fantastic stay at your resort, which was possible, first of all thanks to your greatest treasure – your staff. The rest is also fantastic (accommodation, food), but the people are the best part of Puri Dajuma.
I hope it will be possible in the future to visit this magical place with friends and family.”
Thank you very much, Dear Friends, for this testimony which goes straight to our hearts, especially in this period of economic recovery. We very much hope to see you again soon!
Yesterday Claus’s family and their Balinese friends had a great time in our teppanyaki. Our Chef Rudi has concocted a special Japanese menu based on ultra-fresh ingredients. Several menus are offered to our customers for all tastes: vegetarian, teriyaki, seafood or steak, all accompanied by delicious accompaniments including the famous miso soup. A very pleasant moment to spend in our Sinta lounge, with the sound of the waves and a breathtaking panoramic view of the sunset. When are you coming?
Among the many talents of Hendra, supervisor with Juliarta of our restaurants, there is the game of chess, an activity he has been practicing with passion for years. Our customers love to play with him but he’s hard to beat. This week we had the pleasure of welcoming our client and regular friend from Dajuma, Parker Hurley who played two matches with Hendra, both won by our champion! A beautiful and relaxing holiday activity that you will enjoy doing during your next stay between two surf sessions!
