Temple Etiquette in Bali

Unlike the forbidding sombre temples of the Oriental countries, the Balinese temple is a gay, open air affair with one, two, or three open courtyards surrounded by low wall, each court leading into the next through more or less elaborate stone gates, and with a number of empty sheds, pavilions, and shrines in varied styles.

Wayang Lemah: An Exorcistic Puppet Performance

When a grand ceremony is held, the performance of Wayang Lemah is obligatory. As its name suggest Wayang Lemah is always performed in the daylight (“wayang” means “puppet” and “lemah” means “day”) and is usually performed as long as the high priest officiates the ceremony. Wayang Lemah is an exorcistic play, it is performed primarily for invisible audiences: the spirit, divinities and the demons, it is a part of ceremony which functions to ensure the success of a ceremony and obviously not an entertainment for mortals.

Davenport captures Bali crown
September 17, 2007

Bali, Indonesia (Sports Network) - Lindsay Davenport completed a successful return to singles tennis with a three-set victory over Slovakia’s Daniela Hantuchova to capture the Commonwealth Bank Tennis Classic title.

Davenport earned a 6-4, 3-6, 6-2 triumph to claim the Bali title for the second time. She also won this tournament in 2005, but this victory came in her first singles action since last September.

The former world No. 1 became a new mother just three months ago, giving birth to son Jagger in June.

“It’s crazy. Maybe the pregnancy gave me some magical powers, I don’t know,” said Davenport.

Davenport earned a first prize of $32,340 for her 52nd career singles title and first since the 2005 season. She didn’t have much trouble the entire week, dropping a set just once on her way to the final. That set loss came in an upset of top-seeded Jelena Jankovic in the quarterfinals.

Hotel Press Releases

Karma Kandara
Jl. Widjaya Kusuma, Uluwatu, Bali - Indonesia, 80362

September Press Release

Kandara - the sanscrit word for 'great cliff' or 'cave temple' will join the Karma Resorts collection in 2007.

Karma Kandara will provide no disappointment in fulfilling the promise of its name. Set atop the sweeping cliffs of Uluwatu, Karma Kandara overlooks what is arguably Bali 's most beautiful beach. Kandara is blessed with golden sand and azure waters that stretch to the distant horizon.

The 36 Villas of Karma Kandara sit atop the "bukit" land that makes up the southernmost tip of the island. The beauty of the location itself is enhanced by the distant and towering Mount Agung. Easy access to the private beach at the foot of the cliff enables every guest to experience this awesome beauty.

Adjacent to Karma Kandara is a traditional Balinese temple that is spiritually connected to a highly auspicious cave temple located at the cliff base.

Karma cuisine will be served in the restaurant perched high on the dramatic cliff top, where diners can look out over the main infinity pool onwards to the distant horizon. Contented with the perfectly crafted culinary delights, guests can retreat to enjoy the privacy of their villa haven.
