Jumeirah Bali, a spectacular water palace hugging a cliff in Uluwatu, has unveiled a collection of on- and off-property experiences designed to help new arrivals feel an immediate and profound bond with the island. From making traditional Gebogan and Canang Sari ceremonial offerings to learning common phrases in Bahasa Indonesia, guests will find a thoughtfully designed collection of daily-changing activities that promote wellbeing and cultural involvement.
Culturally-minded guests can make their acquaintance with Bali by starting with a temple visit and blessing ritual. Taking place at one of the sacred Dang Kahyangan Hindu temples, the experience offers a spiritual journey and insights into Balinese beliefs. At the resort, guests can join a number of educational classes, such as a rindik session where they can try their hand at playing Bali’s traditional musical instrument; a cooking class with a Jumeirah chef focusing on healthy, easy-to-make Balinese dishes; batik-making workshop covering everything from pattern creation using dyes, to producing a finished one-of-a-kind masterpiece; and Balinese dance class for ladies.
In keeping with Jumeirah Bali’s wellness ethos, the resort is also offering a range of holistic activities for the body, mind and spirit. Holidaymakers can choose from morning and sunset yoga; candle-pouring workshop using natural wax and aromatherapy for a peaceful, meditative experience; a session of Bayu Suci, Bali’s movement meditation, that helps build internal energy and promotes flexibility and balance; and Banyu Raga – a series of invigorating pool exercises that are gentle on the joints while offering a satisfying workout.
At Talise Spa, a sound and breath healing experience promotes deep relaxation with yogic breathwork and Tibetan sound bowls, while an aromatherapy oil blend workshop focuses on how essential oils affect our emotions and includes a personalised botanical blend to take home.
All activities are complimentary for in-house guests, unless stated otherwise.
