Tenganan, Balinese Traditional Village
Bali is an island of great diversity and there is much more out there to be experienced than just the shops, spas and restaurants of the conventional tourism districts. For a culturally inspiring day out, visit the village of Tenganan on Bali’s eastern shoulder not far from the seaside town of Candi Dasa. This traditional village is often referred to as a living museum and is a closed community that is home to Bali’s original inhabitants.
Members of this archaic cult society adhere to their own territorial rules and religious beliefs. Outsiders are welcome during daylight hours to see how these people retain their ancient ways. The music, dance and arts of Tenganan are both rich and symbolic. The women of this village produce a unique textile called ‘geringsing’, which is woven using a difficult double ikat technique. Other interesting highlights include a traditional style of architecture that pre-dates Bali’s Hindu culture. Visit our Front Desk to arrange a Tenganan Village tour at the best available price and enjoy a fascinating day filled with great photo opportunities.

Amadea Cares Sponsored Medical Operation for 6 Months Old Girl
Amadea Cares is our Corporate Social Responsibility program that focuses on giving back to local people in need. Not everyone on the island is fortunate enough to benefit from Bali’s lucrative tourism industry or have access to quality healthcare. Therefore, we have taken it upon ourselves to help some of the most vulnerable members of the community. Amongst other things, we have made it our main mission to fund craniofacial surgeries and restore quality of life to young children from impoverished families.
On March 12th essential surgeries were performed for a young children requiring urgent medical assistance under this program. Ardini Zikra Hibbi (6 months olds) both recently received brand new smiles after undergoing procedures to correct cleft palate deformities. These little boys now have the opportunity to grow up without affliction and later become productive members of society.
We Care to Share
On March 9th staff members paid a visit to the Gayatri Widya Mandala Orphanage in Tabanan Regency to share the Joy of Nyepi, the holy month for Hindu community.
In this visit we spend quality time with a group of underprivileged children. Our team organized fun games as well as an uplifting session to share personal dreams, hopes and aspirations for the future. A significant donation was also made to help with the operational costs of running the facility that provides a nurturing home environment for local youngsters in need.
