Artisan - An Australian wine made in Bali!
Artisan Estate was the first company to produce quality wine in Indonesia. Artisan Estate’s point of difference is quality at a great price. In the highly taxed Indonesian wine market, they offer a quality Australian wine at a locally produced price point. They are able to do this by importing 100% fresh wine grape juice from Western Australia into Bali under strict temperature control, where it is then crafted into wine with meticulous attention to detail. For this reason they have become the local wine of choice for many of the top 4/5 star hotels and restaurants both in Bali and other regions of Indonesia. Their wines are considered to be the best produced in Indonesia and as they say to all their customers“Taste the Difference”.
Artisan is selected as the Bali Dynasty Resorts' house wine - make sure you try it next time you visit!

The children of the village will soon start to prepare for our annual visit on Independence Day, August 17th, and will practice their favourite songs or musical instruments to perform that day.
To aid our charity fundraising effort we introduced our voluntary two dollar to check out program. Also we will continue with our Charity Quiz Nights twice a week at Gracie Kelly's which are a great success and of course there are collection boxes around the resort. Also you can still make donations by purchase Bali Dynasty's merchandise, a percentage of the profit will go to the charity effort.

Giant traditional kites, four meters in width and almost ten meters in length, are crafted and flown competitively by teams hailing from the villages of Denpasar.This event is a seasonal religious festival sending a plea to the Hindu deities for an abundant crop and harvest, and truly is a feast for all five senses.
You will find many types of kites in Bali and the colors of the kites are all traditionally black, red, white, and gold/yellow which represent the incarnations of the Hindu deities. The kites are blessed before the event by a temple priest.
