Dance for the Gods
The lifestyles of Balinese people is expressed in their dance. Not only do we learn about the Balinese religion from their dance creations but also we can come to understand the flow of cultural events and activities that belong to everyday life. We can discover Balinese attitudes, how they look at nature, and how they regard their fauna and flora.
Balinese dance goes as far back as Balinese written history with much of the heritage originating from Java. Ironically the Javanese culture has disappeared but has still survived in Bali and has become part of classical Balinese culture.
The very essence of the Balinese culture is dance and drama, which is performed during temple festivals and in ceremonies. The dances performed in hotels is a small fraction of what Balinese dance has to offer.
Several venues in Bali tourist area offer great opportunity for tourist to watch this beautiful culture heritage. Check with the hotel concierge to help you for schedules. Click this link https://bit.ly/1r54Ln9 to watch the famous Legong Dance in Ubud Palace.

Our Romantic Escape package is still available and entitles you and a partner to stay for 3 nights in the vibrant heart of Seminyak. This exclusive offer features an array of special privileges including a Relaxing Balinese Massage at Ambiente Spa and an intimate 3-course dinner. The package extends all room categories starting from just USD 325 (excluding tax and service fees) for a Deluxe Room. If you are looking to celebrate your love in true style, we recommend our Amadea Rooftop Suite for a more private experience. You can choose to stay longer as extra nights are possible or there is always the option to explore other settings with a combined trip to the romantic neighbouring island of Nusa Lembongan or the Gilis in Lombok.
In response to suggestions made by in-house guests, we since last year have launched our own small library in the corner of the Lobby Lounge. It features a varied collection of books and holiday reading materials that have been left behind by previous travellers. The library operates on an honour system whereby guests are free to borrow books during their stay. Alternatively, they can also exchange novels brought from home for something new to read whilst relaxing by the pool. All book donations will be greatly appreciated to help build up our library for the pleasure of others.
