At the resort, we recently conducted a ritual blessing ceremony, known as an ‘odolan’, for our Hindu temple on 12th July 2018. Much like an anniversary, this symbolic event is carried out every year in accordance to the Balinese calendar to commemorate the day that is was inaugurated. The ceremony itself was a colourful spectacle as all employees and the management team dressed in traditional costumes to participate in the proceedings. For this auspicious occasion, the actual temple was wrapped in lengths of ceremonial cloth, while embellished bamboo shrines and long flags decorated the surrounding area. Elaborate offerings of fruit, flowers, coloured cakes, rice and woven palm fronds were on display to appease the gods. A Balinese priest recited sacred mantras to purify the temple and then everyone in attendance gathered to pray for peace and prosperous times ahead.

Java, Bali and Lombok Voted Top 3 Best Islands in the World!
The word 'island' usually conjures thoughts of sun-soaked sands, idyllic turquoise ocean and gently swaying palm trees. But a new World's Best survey conducted by Travel & Leisure proves there is no single formula for paradise.
Based on activities, natural attractions, beaches, food and friendliness, thousands of wanderlust enthusiasts voted for their favourite island havens around the world. Beating out traditional favourites like Maui in Hawaii, Bora Bora and Tahiti, the densely populated Indonesian island of Java took first place.
Described as the 'heart of a nation', Java is the economic and geographic centre of Indonesia and serves as home to 141 million people. Lying in between Sumatra and popular Bali, Java featured on the World's Best list for the first time this year thanks to its' powerful waterfalls, longstanding local traditions, conservation areas and awesome nature.
It was a clean sweep for Indonesia, with neighbouring Bali and Lombok nabbing second and third place respectively. Read the full article by dailymail.co.uk
