Celebrating the full moon, RIMBA Jimbaran Bali’s village dining experience, Kampoeng Bali, puts on a real show. Showcasing magical Balinese dance and music performances, alongside an authentic Balinese buffet dinner, this dining experience presents the best of Bali in the most sacred time of the month – the first of which will take place on Friday, 13 September 2019.
The full moon, or ‘purnama’, marks a significant day in the Balinese calendar, a day that is considered as the most sacred time of the month. It is a special day where the hundreds of temples on the island declare its anniversary on a specific full moon every year, a day where ceremonies and festivities can be seen spread across Bali. According to the Balinese belief, ‘purnama’ is a time when the Gods descend upon the island to extend their blessings.
To pay homage to this special day, RIMBA Jimbaran Bali by AYANA has prepared an immersive display of Balinese culture, presenting a series of entrancing Balinese dance and music performances including Balinese Gong Kebyar, Puspa Wresti Dance, Cendrawasih Dance, Kebyar Trompong, Barong Dance together with Kecak Dance, and Fire Dance. There will also be cooking demonstrations by local villagers including how to make satay lilit and gado-gado, along with local arts and crafts demonstrations from fruit carving and painting to gebogan-making.
Following the festivities and activities, indulge in a lavish Balinese buffet feast showcasing a tantalising spread of beloved local favourites, from barbecues and Balinese satays to roasted suckling pig, vegetable mix and a mouth-watering array of tropical fruits and sweet desserts.
