Connect to the culture through celebration and traditional offerings.
The rich culture of Bali is famous throughout the world. A major influence on the arts of the island comes from Hinduism. Feast your senses on the myriad of colour and diversity during temple festivities. Music, dance and drama performances offer wonderful entertainment and scenes for both locals and travellers.
Balinese families mark the cycle of life through colourful celebrations. Guests can join a spiritual offering class at the resort, learning how to prepare a traditional offering for ceremonies.
