Activities

 
Art Village Tour
Part gallery space, part cooperative. Each village specialises in unique Balinese artisanship by people dedicated to their craft. Immerse yourself in Balinese culture, where art is not just a pastime but a way of life.
 
Balinese Dance
There are dances for the people; there are dances for the gods. More than a display of skill, dances symbolise the ancient battle between the Ranga (evil) and the Barong (good). The musicians play gamelan music in white gelongs (traditional Balinese headscarves) on bamboo instruments. The dancers themselves wear an elaborate traditional headdress, clothed in a ceremonial cloth of gold with glints of crimson. As they dance, their hands carry flower offerings similar to those that are offered to the Gods all over Bali. A glimpse into the art and mystique of traditional Balinese skills passed on over generations.
