Fun Activity of the Month: Bali White Water Rafting
There is nothing more exhilarating than exploring the natural beauty of Bali with a whitewater rafting excursion. A number of reputable operators are available to conduct guided tours along some of the island’s most breathtaking stretches of river. It is an opportunity to escape the hectic pace of mainstream tourism and experience a side of Bali that remains untouched by the hands of time. A rafting adventure is a combination of challenging rapids and gentle paddling along a river edged by tropical terrain. All tours include transportation, international standard rafting equipment and lunch upon completion.
Visit our Guest Service Assistant to make the necessary booking arrangements for a fun day out that the entire family will enjoy. Alternatively, email us via firstname.lastname@example.org to create a holiday itinerary prior to arriving in Bali.
An auspicious day coming up on Bali’s cultural calendar is Tumpek Wayang that falls on 16th November 2019. This special occasion pays tribute to the shadow puppets that have both religious and social significance here on the island. A small purification ceremony is performed to bless each puppet, believed to have its own distinct character and possess magical powers that can bring an ordinary performance to life. The puppeteer will also pray during this ritual seeking artistic guidance for future shows.
Puppets, known as ‘wayang kulit’ in Bali, are used to conduct a unique form of theatre employing a transparent screen to project light and shadow. Performances re-enact adaptations of classic Hindu tales or cover local events filled with elements of humour and messages of morality. Puppet shows performed at night are purely for entertainment purposes and during the day they are held in conjunction with more important religious ceremonies. Oka Kartini in Ubud hosts weekly shadow puppet performances for the benefit of travellers. Visit our Guest Service Assistant for further information.

Amadea's Temple Anniversary
Amadea Resort & Villas celebrates the anniversary of its temple every year with an elaborate purification ceremony to reinforce the connection between the physical and unseen worlds. This year it was on 13th October 2019, which is an auspicious date on the Balinese religious calendar that coincides with the full moon. The ceremony involved colorful offerings and a ritual blessing by a local high caste priest. In-house guests were also invited to come to observe the proceedings and join the Amadea team as they pray for peace and prosperity.
The essence of Balinese Hinduism is all about maintaining a harmonious existence. This concept is supported by a lifestyle philosophy known as Tri Hita Karana that embodies the balance between man, his environment and God Almighty. Religion greatly influences the everyday lives of most Balinese. Here, ancestors are defied, as are the fundamental forces of nature. Beneath the surface of modernization, it is Bali’s rich culture and timeless traditions that make the island such a unique destination.
