An enjoyable evening watching traditional dance
Jul 2019 • Family
An insight into the traditional dance of Bali. The show lasted about an hour. The dance show was very lively and the young girls who dance at the end as well as the man who danced in the fire were spectacular,

Dance was great but the tour guide was USELESS!
Don’t waste your time or money booking this tour - get the ticket when you’re there and enjoy the dance because this tour operator does not deliver! The female tour guide did not even introduce herself. She met us at the entrance, handed us a piece of paper with details of the dance (we could not read it in the dimly lit venue), took a pic of us with a dancer (the dancer takes a pic with anyone who wants one taken so it is not by special arrangement), told us to sit anywhere, pointed to the exit and left. She did not even bother to see if we were comfortably seated or explained the dance to us( our driver did this on the way back to the hotel) or ensured that we left safely. We felt ripped off and I will never use this tour operator again!!!

Dear Vimlaf, Greetings from Tour East Indonesia. Thank you for taking the time to write a review and for using our service. We do apologize to hear this inconvenience. Our procedure said that the tour guide supposed to introduce herself and explain the tour itinerary from beginning and discuss with you either you want to skip some or add some object and ensure that you left safely. Please let us know more detail about your booking so we could investigate this case to make it better. And we guarantee it won't happen next time. For sure we will eliminate the down side and improve the good side to make it better. Regards.

Great experience. Exciting dance and story. Loved the fire and the Monkey King. The sunset over The Indian Ocean was spectacular and worth the climb. Cool evening breeze. Watch out for the naughty monkeys and keep your valuables close. Highly recommend

A MUST SEE!!!!
What a beautiful Ceremonial dance with a love story to boot. The constant chanting and hypnotic singing coupled with the most beautiful sunset I have ever seen. Get seated early as all seats are not numbered so it's first in best dressed. This takes place at the Uluwatu Temple. Dress appropriately (ladies cover up) you will be asked to wear traditional skirt and belt as a sign of respect on top of your clothes. Don't go if you don't want to respect the Indonesian's culture. Be aware that the sunset takes place at exactly the same time as the Kecak fire dance (pronounced Ke-chuck) and the awesome thing is where you are seated you can see both. Loved Loved Loved it.

A really beautiful traditional ceremony. The entire audience was respectful and quiet and the stadium theater is quite unique.
