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!

SUNSET BEHIND THE COCKTAIL

What is the best time to enjoy a delicious cocktail in the tropics? It is undoubtedly the “happy hours” of Dajuma. Imagine yourself comfortably seating in the gazebos of our tropical garden or on the underwater stools of our pools, with the sun declining on the horizon. Because Dajuma is oriented full west, with breathtaking sunsets that you will never forget. Our bartenders love to surprise you with every day new creations that enrich an already busy cocktail menu. Something we would much like to introduce you to on your next visit. See you soon!

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?

RELAX IN PARADISE

Among many assets, Dajuma offers to its guests a lot of places in its 1,5 ha tropical garden where the master words are RELAX and UNWIND. Let’s have a look at these places: along the 200 meters seashore, just a few steps from the beach, comfortable long chairs, hammocks, swings and Gazebos await your visit with a breathtaking view of the ocean. Even when the hotel is full you will always find a tranquil place where to relax. A little bit higher, our Bendega Pool deck is also another place to visit: overlooking the fishermen beach and the Medewi surfing spot, you will be fascinated by the mouvements of the fishing boats and the surfers. But the cherry on the cake is definitively the sunset. Fully oriented West, the entire property offers unforgettable sunsets. Looking forward to welcoming you soon!

CONGRATULATIONS TO MELINDA & ANDREW

This week took place at Dajuma the wedding of Melinda and Andrew. 68 guests celebrated this union in Dajuma’ garden. After the wedding vow declared by the bride and groom in front of the witnesses, they exchanged their rings. The weds accompanied by their families and friends were then invited to the beach to enjoy a sunset cocktail party, while signing their wedding certificate. A delicious dinner was served followed by a live music and some surprise videos from their friends displayed on screen, all in a very festive and warm atmosphere. Our sincere congratulations to Melinda and Andrew! Thank you for having chosen Dajuma for this so important event in life!

DAJUMA SUNSETS: WHICH ANGLE WILL BE YOURS?

This week, we decided to publish our blog on the theme “Dajuma Sunsets” but seen from the viewpoint of our guests through their own pictures. Oriented full West the resort presents stunning sunsets which are appreciated by our guests particularly those who like to photograph this natural phenomenon. But the problem is under which angle should we take such picture? Because, from many locations around the resort, the result is different as shown on the photo montage. And that should not stop you from enjoying a good glass of wine. Which angle will be yours?

UNCREDIBLE SUNSETS

Because of its orientation full West, Dajuma is the ideal place where to enjoy stunning sunsets while savoring a delicious cocktail prepared by our waiters. During sunsets, at low tide, the cape in front of Dajuma is often discovered and gives rise to an amazing spectacle where local families come to bathe (the famous “mandi mandi”) while fishermen are preparing their prahos for the night fishing. A rare moment of serenity to savor without limits!

SUNSET TIME AT DAJUMA BENDEGA

Every dusk is a delight at Dajuma with breathtaking sunsets ! The resort being on a cape oriented full west, one can see stunning sunsets from almost any area with different angles. What a show to see the local fishermen pushing their prahos to the sea and preparing themselves to spend the night fishing offshore!
On the picture, the view we have from our brand new Bendega restaurant. Just beautiful!

SUNSET TIME FOR CALYPSO & LOLA

At sunset, there is one thing that kids love above all: it is to walk along a sandy beach trying to catch the most possible crabs and seashells! On the photo, two sweet little girls Calypso and Lola run on the beach in the direction of the tall coconut tree that marks the boundary of the resort on the East side. A moment of pure happiness!
