We are launching our new website this week

This week, we have the immense pleasure of presenting you our new website whose development will have lasted 3 months. We will long remember this version developed during the off-peak weeks of the pandemic!

So what’s new in this new version?

First of all, we wanted to improve the informative and photographic content. This is how all the rooms are now described in detail including a detailed plan of each of them. We did the same for all the other departments of the hotel, catering, spa, garden, nautical activities, excursions, etc. We also highlighted the extraordinary beauty and diversity of West Bali through new photos and inspiring texts. But the most important is our new pricing policy which guarantees the best deal if reservations are made on our website. We have finally given a lot of space to our dear staff and our commitments in favor of our natural and human environment.

Let us know your impressions. We will be happy to update our website based on your comments!

A unique opportunity for Dajuma to meet our European partners and invent with them some new services which will hopefully astonish our guests!

READING: ANOTHER EXPERIENCE IN DAJUMA

Among greatest pleasures we can have during our vacation, reading books in inspiring locations such as Dajuma comes in the first positions. Not so fashionable compared with reading on smartphones and tablets? Not true! The idea and the pictures of this blog come from one of our guest, fond of reading. Hence, year after year our library had enriched with books left by our guests from all around the world, in all languages. Installed in a comfortable long chair with the breeze of the ocean and the song of the birds as companions, is there a better place where to savor a good book?

NEW CYCLING TOUR “TEMBLES”

Is there anything more authentic than discovering a new place by cycling? At Dajuma we encourage as much as possible this way of visiting our area where, behind each curve of the small roads, there is something ubuffanbuffaique to discover. Let’s take an example with our brand new tour called “Tembles Discovery”.  You start from Dajuma around 8 a.m. in our adventure jeep, the bicycles in the back. After 30 mn drive you reach a traditional Balinese village called Tembles which is the starting point of your cycling tour along the rice fields. You will visit the House of Jegog (traditional music from West Bali), the village primary school, the traditional market and the very holy Rambut Siwi Temple at the end. You are back at Dajuma around 12, ready for the lunch.

DAJUMA AT ITB ASIA 2018

Happy to be part of the 1000 selected exhibitors, another important appointment for Dajuma this year was our participation in ITB Asia. The event took place at the emblematic Sands Expo and Convention Centre in Marina Bay Sands, Singapore from 17 to 19 October 2018, a three-day conference and exhibition recording an impressive 25,000 business appointments. The exhibition hosted more than 1,000 exhibitors and over 1,000 buyers this year, representing more than 127 countries. The trend is definitively in favor of sustainable and eco-responsible tourism, travellers looking for more and more valuable and off-the beaten tracks experiences. What is exactly our raison d’être and motto!

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!
