Awesome show!

If you plan to explore Uluwatu Temple and perhaps see the notorious monkeys roaming around, it is best to come earlier, maybe around 2 or 3 pm. We came at around 5:45 pm, we... read more

Do not miss the famous Kecak and fire dance at Uluwatu temple. It happens everyday in the evening during sunset. You will be amazed to see how 70 men sing and make sounds and the whole show happens with that without any music etc. Beautiful dancers and performers. Even funny in the end.

West facing cliff edge so excellent location to see the sunset. A few things to highlight / tips to avoid disappointment : - visiting at sunset time, this was the busiest tourist attraction that we visited across East Java, Bali and Gili Air. The crowds reduced the peaceful feeling one could attain for such a beautiful location - arrive earlier... More

Visited the temple and stayed for the dance. All seven in my group are adults and we unanimously agreed that our time could have been spent better doing something else. It wasn't terrible, and if you're into shows that are geared for tourism, you'll likely be satisfied. The show started out fine but then got shticky towards the end.

The show itself was good and entertaining but I did get bored in the middle. It's a dance based on the Ramayana where Sita gets abducted and Ram comes to her rescue. The person who played Hanuman interacted with the audience and brought a funny element to the show. There was a small mishap at the show where one of... More

It was a really fun show and quite entertaining! It really is ridiculous to have to use 100 characters in order to sumbit a review. There are activities that just don't require that much written about them but that doesn't mean they are not worthy of a review~

At sunset we were packed into a purpose built open air amphitheater atop the cliffs of Uluwatu Temple. Enter a choir of chanting men .....kecak kecak kecak....almost trance like state they continue for the 45 minutes to sing and chant as the backing to this traditional Balinese Dance (Hindu Mythology). It's not for all and we witnessed this throughout the... More

The evening Kecak Fire Dance is a typical way to wrap up a tour of the Uluwatu Temple, and we joined the throng of tourists who had all clearly gotten the same memo. For INR100,000, you're treated to a traditional Balinese dance re-telling the story of Ramayana with colourful costumes and a choir of chanting men. While most of the... More
