Bali Events

Denpasar Festival

Denpasar Festival focuses on happiness and sustainability. It realises Bali’s full potential and the important existence of its creative industry. Held annually, the Denpasar Festival commemorates the end of the year with a silver lining. Each year there is a different theme along with colourful exhibitions and ethnic musical performances by Balinese artists. The close of the festival is celebrated with a dance parade and Dadong Rerod opera.

This year’s Denpasar Festival will be held on the 28th – 30th December 2019. The main venue for this three-day event will be spread across “KM 0 Denpasar” or “Kilometre Zero Point Denpasar”, located at Dauh Puri Kangin, West Denpasar, Denpasar City, Bali. (Source: www.balidestination.com)

Cultural Calendar

Saraswati Day

Saraswati Day is held every 210 days in honour of Saraswati who is the Hindu goddess of knowledge, music, arts, wisdom and learning. It is believed that this beautiful deity also helped the trinity of Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva to create, maintain and regenerate the universe. So, thanks are given to her on this holy day.

The name Saraswatiderives from two local Balinese words: sara and swaandthi. When combined, these words translateas ‘the one who has all knowledge’. The symbol for Saraswati is a pretty four-armed goddess depicted as playing the zither and holding up scriptures. This portrayalis demonstrative of the thirst of knowledge and higher learning.

The hallmark of the celebration is the provision of offerings by locals regardless of their location: whether at school, at home, at the office, in the farm or in the temples. These offerings are varied, but the one similarity between them is the fact that they are often placed on top of books andholy scripture. This is done in light of the celebration of knowledge, which one can attain from these books.

It is also typical to see Balinese refraining from reading or writing on this day as all the books are offered up to Saraswati. As evening falls, religious books are read in temples or at home to honour the goddess. This year, Saraswati Day will be celebrated on the 7th of December 2019. (Source: www.balitravelhub.com).

With the support from our loyal guests and their generous donations, Bali Dynasty Resort has been able to establish and sponsor the Bali Dynasty Resort Care & Recovery Centre. This care facility replicates a nurturing home environment that provides the necessary assistance and resources required to keep families together before, during, and after medical treatment. With the centre now open and being operated by Solemen Indonesia, a non-profit charity foundation, Bali Dynasty Resort is focusing its efforts to cover expenses for a number of Sole Buddies who are currently in residence. 

Komang

Komang is a 13-year-old boy from Bangli. He has the rare genetic skin condition known as Harlequins Ichthyosis, which has caused him to become immobile due to limb contractures. Despite his issues, he attends school and loves to sing. After being assessed and monitored by dermatologists, his bathroom was renovated to include a bathtub as soaking is a vital part of his skincare regime. Komang requires two tins of Ensure milk formula, QV Wash and cream, Bicarbonate of soda and two water truck deliveries for bathing totalling approximately IDR 1,200,000-each month.

Wisma

Wisma is an 11-year-old boy living in Singaraja. He suffers from Cerebral Palsy and Epilepsy. When we first met him, he was having a daily seizure and was a very unsettled young boy.

Wisma requires two tins of Ensure formula, plus monthly consultations and medication totalling over IDR 1,000,000-. Unfortunately, his condition is not covered by the local government insurance system (BPJS)

Guest Feedback

Gardens are looking super, great to see the ducks and squirrel roaming around the garden freely. The new expanded Gracie Kelly’s is great, although it has increased significantly in size it has maintained the atmosphere of the older, more intimate Gracie’s. Christopher AUSTRALIA

The hotel was fantastic, we were treated like kings and queens and really felt at home. The wellness center and massage by the pool were top level and very professional. Ziga SI

The hotel was fantastic, we were treated like kings and queens and we really felt at home. The wellness center and massages by the pool were top level and very professional (especially Lina was amazing). They have a big area for everybody that wants activities and fun by the pool, but also provide a adults only area if you need a quiet place to chill. Recommend to both families and couples. BenetkeCom Slovenia

The New Gracie Kelly’s is fantastic, staff and food are excellent, the sunset bar was very good as well with polite staff and very cold refreshment. Sthepen AUSTRALIA
