This year again, Dajuma celebrated the New Year in a very festive way. More than 80 guests enjoyed the New Year Eve with 3 orchestras (Jegog, Gamelan and Western Live), a pantagruelic buffet including, beside other dishes, the famous “babi guling” and delicious desserts prepared by our kitchen team under the attentive supervision of our 2 Chefs, Dedi and Rudi. The decoration theme this year was “nature”. All our staff participated in the preparation of very nice decorative items including a splendid Garuda entirely made of bamboo and palm leaves. The kitchen stands and the stage were also decorated with natural leaves. On the 12th stroke of midnight, everybody was happy to exchange their wishes for 2020 under the stars and a beautiful firework. We wish you a very happy, healthy and exciting year 2020!
Very festive atmosphere this December 31st in Dajuma to celebrate the new year!

Big party under the moon last night in Dajuma to celebrate the new year. Our guests have discovered the magic of Balinese dances performed by the young people of the village dance school. They were accompanied by several musicians, the Kembang Rare Group, a gamelan orchestra called Angklung here, that won this year’s Baleganjur Music Competition of the province, and of course the country’s must-have, the famous Jegog and its captivating music made from giant bamboos. With great talent, the singer Oka and her band have musically animated the evening alternating with music and traditional dances, playing the last hits of the moment. On the twelve strokes of midnight, greetings were exchanged between the guests while a fireworks was fired from the beach to the delight of the children present … and their parents. All this around a delicious buffet mixing the best Balinese and French specialties. We take this opportunity to thank you for the trust you have shown us for more than 15 years now and wish you and your loved ones a Happy New Year 2018!
Dajuma family wishes you and your family a beautiful new year filled with peace, happyness and good health.
We look forward to seeing you again in 2017!
2016 has been a year full of challenges for Dajuma: after 2 years of intensive work, we opened our new Bendega villas on May 1st, increasing our capacity by 50% with now 35 rooms in total. In parallel we opened a new restaurant with a brand new menu composed of original and tasty dishes, we changed the decoration of most of our traditional cottages while accentuating the protection of our exceptional environment. By listening carefully the Voice of our Customers through outside reviews and our own satisfaction surveys we also improved the quality of our service without loosing the very specific link which exists since the beginning between our guests and our staff.
Nothing would have been possible without the support of our guests and partners. On this specific occasion we would like to thank them again and wish them and their families every happiness, success and good health throughout the New Year and beyond!
This year the celebration of the New Year Eve at Dajuma was as usual festive and gastronomic but with a different show called Kecak.
Created in the 1930’s this Balinese dance is a music drama performed by a circle of tens of dancers who percussively chant « cak » while moving their hands and arms, depicting a battle of the Ramayana.
The dancers troop is composed of young fellows from the village of Pekutatan, many of them being the children of our staff. They performed their art on the stage and also on the beach giving to the show a very special and nice atmosphere.
We wish all our valued guests, partners and staff a Happy New Year 2016!
The New Year Eve at Dajuma did not escape the tradition this year: a wonderful set-up in the garden, 3 orchestras to help our guests discovering the beauty and the diversity of the traditional Balinese music, particularly this vibrating Jegog music generated from bamboos and originated from a small village of West Bali close to the hotel. A plus this year: the second orchestra was composed of young musicians, most of them being the children of our employees, not even born when the hotel was created 12 years ago. A great moment for them and for us!
The orchestras accompanied many dances performed by dancers of the school of dance of Pekutatan under the magistral guidance of our dear Guru Agung. A fascinating show given by gracious dancers richly dressed!
Finally our guests appreciated a delicious dinner with, among many other dishes, the famous Babi Guling, monument of the Balinese cuisine. On the stroke of midnight, fireworks were launched from the beach for the greatest pleasure of our guests’ children.
2014 has been rich for Dajuma from many points of view: completion of the renovation program of our cottages, 4 stars ranking from the Indonesian Association of Hoteliers, nomination to the Green Tec Awards and the World Luxury Hotels Awards and most importantly, a lot of positive feed-backs from our guests.
We selected one which is for all Dajuma staff very meaningful insofar as it translates perfectly the spirit of our hotel: authenticity, serenity and harmony.
…only here a true, simple and at the same time rich spirit of Bali can be found !
« We couldn’t have chosen better place for our honeymoon !
Everything was perfect and made our moods great every single day.
FOR SURE, we are going to come back here, as only here a true, simple and at the same time rich spirit of Bali can be found !
Thank you all Balinese People for sharing this true paradise with us ! »

This New Year celebration has been particularly festive at Dajuma. More than 50 guests enjoyed a delicious typical Balinese dinner served in the garden while 3 orchestras (Jeggog, Gamelan and Gongs) accompanied by Balinese dancers were playing. When midnight approached, all the guests were invited to come on stage to play with the musicians. After the traditional greetings, fireworks were launched from the beach. Thanks to the “weather keepers” from Pekutatan village, the sky remained clear almost all the night. A wonderful moment shared between the guests and the staff. Happy New Year 2014! Selamat Tahun Baru!
