The 28th Annual Bali Arts Festival 2006

The Annual Bali Arts Festival provides an opportunity for the artists and people to develop, explore, preserve, and accommodate various talents through such activities as parades, performances, contests, exhibition, and discussions.

The Bali Arts Festival is a full month of daily performances, handicraft exhibitions and other related cultural and commercial activities during which literally the whole of Bali comes to the city to present its offerings of dance, music and beauty.


One of Bali’s oldest traditional villages, Sembiran lies 30 km east of Singaraja. Like many of Bali Aga villages, Sembiran is located high in the hills off the main coastal road. From Terminal Penarukan take a bemo to Desa Pacung, then catch a ride on motorcycle the rest of the way. The winding four-km-long asphalt road to Sembiran is surfaced but extremely steep. This lovely country road, passes beautiful hills, valley, and gnarly 20-meter-high sonokeling trees (rosewood). As you approach the village, there’s a giant kemit tree, the base said to have been a place where corpses were laid out in ancient times. From the top, look down on the Java Sea.

Good news from Bali
Jun 07, 2006

Good news from Bali (Special Report: Asia-Pacific Incentives & Meetings Expo 2006)MELBOURNE –Australian incentives demand for Bali should start returning within one year at the longest, according to Ida Bagus Lolec, managing director, PT. Pacific World Nusantara, Bali.He based this on the feedback from a recent fam trip. “Last week we looked after 12 travel agents composed of regional wholesalers as well as incentive houses from Melbourne to Bali. When they were leaving Bali, they were crying. They were saying why people back in Australia treat Bali like that. The reason was because they came and they found the infrastructure there, security there and the people were still smiling. They felt that it wasn’t fair,” he said.There are indications that travels to Bali has started to recover. He cited his personal experience with fully booked flights.As far as the Australian travel volume to Bali normalising, Lolec said that this would only happen once the Australian government lifts its travel advisory on Indonesia.

Waka Maya
Jl. Tanjung Pinggir Pantai,, 80228, Sanur, Bali - Indonesia

Exciting Promotion for 2006

Warmest greeting from The WakaMaya Resort & Spa, Bali, Indonesia

The Waka Maya Resort is pleased to announce an exciting promotion for 2006. In the past our many returning guests have become part of our family and we hope that these new, reduced rates will give future guests this opportunity as well. The warm hospitality of the WakaMaya staff is entirely committed to making your experience on the paradise island of Bali truly unforgettable.

Our many years of experience and thoughtful service have placed the WakaMaya among one of a small, elite group of hotels in Bali known as Boutique Resorts. Inspired by the classic Balinese family compound, the WakaMaya is uniquely nestled amidst lush tropical bamboo and coconut groves, away from crowded areas and next to the National Mangrove Forest, a bird watcher’s haven. The ocean is a mere 5 minutes walk away. The WakaMaya offers sanctuary from the modern world; we guarantee our guests seclusion, relaxation and serenity.

At the WakaMaya you will find seven delightful Balinese-style bungalows (Lanai), 2 of them with private plunge pool in an exclusively sculptured environment plus five individual self-contained two and three bedroom villas, some with two bedrooms, some with three, all exquisite in design and detail; three villas have large private swimming pools. Our main WakaMaya swimming pool is styled after the ancient Balinese temple bathing pools; scattered around the lush, tropical grounds are small ponds with lotus flowers and colorful fish.

The fully trained staffs at our Massage Center and Spa are ready to soothe frayed nerves and tired bodies; in Bali we believe that massage is a necessity, not a luxury, and each guest receives a complimentary, traditional Balinese massage on arrival.

For guests wishing absolute privacy and seclusion, the kitchens of the villas are fully equipped, allowing you to make your own coffee, tea or even cook your own meals. The kitchen of our poolside restaurant offers quick snacks, plus a sophisticated variety of dishes, that can be served on the veranda of your own room or in the dining area of your villa.

We offer complimentary shuttle service to the Beach Club and Café, just 5 minutes from our hotel and to the many exclusive shops in Sanur. In addition, our proximity to the main highway makes the WakaMaya an ideally situated home base for further exploration of the beautiful island of Bali.
